Heartless by Marissa Meyer

I've heard a lot about this book so I look forward to reading it.  I have some other Marissa Meyer novels but I haven't read any of them yet.  I'll eventually get around to it.  This is an Owlcrate exclusive version of 'Heartless'!  Very pretty cover.

Goodreads Rating:  4.11 

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland―the infamous Queen of Hearts―she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.
Long before she was the terror of Wonderland, she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love. Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.
Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.
In her first stand-alone teen novel, the New York Times-bestselling author dazzles us with a prequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Subscribers also received a letter from the author and a 'Heartless' quote card. 

Alice's Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (Rock Paper Books Edition) &
Matching Bookmark by Risa Rodil

I didn't own a copy of Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and I'm happy that Owlcrate included this beautiful edition from Rock Paper Books.  The matching bookmark is also gorgeous.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course and structure, characters and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre.

The Rock Paper Books Edition of Alice's Adventures In Wonderland is currently sold out but you can find other beautiful classics at their store here

Mad Hatter's Wonderland Elixir Tea by
Riddle's Tea Shoppe & Adagio

This tea tin is gorgeous!  I love the artwork.  I don't drink much tea (I'm more of a coffee drinker) but this tea smells amazing so I'll definitely be trying it soon.  This is a decaf ceylon tea.  This tea blend was designed exclusively for Owlcrate!

My Thoughts:  Another awesome box from Owlcrate.  I've been loving the books they send out each month and the bookish goodies are always cool.  My favorite products this month were the Authored Adornments Bookmark and the gorgeous edition of Alice's Adventures In Wonderland by Rock Paper Books.  I definitely recommend this book subscription to lovers of young adult novels.
