The Best Damn Book Box

This box came with a letter detailing all the items inside.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

This is the second book in the "A Court of Thorns and Roses" series.  I own the first one but I haven't read it yet.  This second book in the series has gotten wonderful reviews so I really want to start reading these books.

Retail Value:  $18.99

Goodreads Rating:  4.77

I usually will put a Goodreads synopsis on here but I don't want to spoil the first book for anyone and the synopsis has some spoilers in it.  :(  

Below is a Goodreads synopsis of the first book in the series.

A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Timesbestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beastwith faerie lore.
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it... or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.
Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

Beauty and the Beast Tea by First Edition Tea Co.

This is a rose, cinnamon, and vanilla black tea.  I can't wait to try this because it sounds like it will be really good.

Retail Value:  $2.50?

My Thoughts:  I thought this was a great box from The Best Damn Book Box.  I can't wait to start reading the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, especially since the second book has gotten rave reviews.  I loved the Beauty and the Beast theme this month and I thought all the items included fit the theme perfectly.  I can't wait to drink that tea and eat that cookie!  The shipping for May's box was delayed but that was understandable since they recently had a lot of new subscribers but I think they will start to get better with shipping and the founder Nicole is always so sweet and gets back to me right away whenever I have a question or concern.  They also recently switched over to UPS from USPS so that should make it better for shipping.  I'd rather get packages shipped from UPS!  I think this is a great box for book lovers!
