The weekend is here at last, which means it’s time to check out all of the gorgeous goodies from our August 2019 LET THE GAMES BEGIN box…
The Beckoning Shadow by Katharyn Blair: When Vesper finds out she has the ability to bring people’s most terrifying fears to life, she goes on the run. Being a ‘Harbinger’ is (literally) a nightmare until she finds herself enrolled in the notorious Tournament of the Unraveling. With fights to the death, all night training sessions and mysterious new allies; the stakes are high. Vesper must use all her powers if she wants to stay alive.
I am the Master of my Fate Drawstring Bag with artwork by Catarina Book Designs: Inspired by the hardcore training sessions at the heart of our featured read, this exclusive gym bag is perfect for lugging your workout essentials with you. Or if you’re more of a bookworm than a gym bunny, harbour your hardback in this bag instead! www.catarinabookdesigns.wordpress.com
Caraval Candle by Bookworm Candles & Crafts: Light this exclusive candle, take in the glitter, inhale the scent of toffee apple and you’ll be transported to the showstopping drama of Caraval… Just remember, it’s only a game! www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Bookwormcandlescraft
Quidditch Patch by Loeff Bureau Creative: Broomsticks at the ready, it’s time to chase the golden snitch! Whether you’re a muggle or a master on the quidditch pitch you can flaunt your participation in Hogwarts’ most magical game with this exclusive patch..www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LoeffBureauCreative
Book Bingo Magnetic Game by Book Box Club: Battle your buddies and discover who is the most unashamedly bookish of them all! Mount your bingo board on your fridge and cross off your reading achievements. Completed bingo boards win the respect of book-lovers everywhere!
Queen of Hearts Earrings by Book Box Club: Of all the game players, surely none are as feared as Alice in Wonderland’s Queen of Hearts! Playing cards are terrified of her, flamingos and hedgehogs quiver before her on the croquet lawn and she’s rather partial to chopping off heads! If you’re looking to intimidate your opponents, pop these regal studs in your lobes – and get your game face at the ready!
Bookish Extras: Check out these awesome new reads from our friends at Usborne, Barrington Stoke & Hachette.
