If you are a fan of fairy tales and foklore, Katherine Arden’s The Bear and the Nightingale is a must-read. The book is beautifully written, and the Russian roots of the story will be delightfully unfamiliar to many readers. If you enjoyed Naomi Novik’s Uprooted, you’ll enjoy this as well. If you enjoy The Bear and the Nightingale, then I highly suggest picking up Catherynne M. Valente’s Deathless. If you haven’t read any of these books, then you’ve got a lot of catching up to do. Check out the synopsis below. [click to continue…]

Did you know there’s a subscription box out there that will send you utterly adorable things from Japan? It’s called Kawaii Box and it’s exactly what the name implies. A box full of super kawaii things.
Every month, Kawaii Box will send you 10-12 hand-picked super kawaii items from Japan and Korea with free shipping worldwide for anywhere from $17.90 to $19.80 depending on your subscription. It’s sort of like someone going out to Blippo or Little Tokyo and sending you goodies monthly.
Because I was so smitten with just the idea of this box, I got in touch with the nice folks over there and they not only sent me a box to review, but they also gave us a box to give away. Check out my unboxing pics below along with details on how you can win your own Kawaii Box. [click to continue…]
