The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi – July Book Pick

The Night We Said YEsThe Night We Said Yes is Laren Gibaldi’s first book and along with that we received a signed bookplate, a bookmark with the book name on it and a pin with the name of the band from the book. This months pick is not the kind of book I usually read but it’s always good to get out of our comfort zone and try something different. The Amazon synopsis is below

A fun, romantic read, perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Susane Colasanti! What happens when Matt and Ella reunite one year after their breakup? Are second chances really possible?

Before Matt, Ella had a plan. Get over her ex-boyfriend and graduate high school—simple as that. But Matt—the cute, shy, bespectacled bass player—was never part of that plan. And neither was attending a party that was crashed by the cops just minutes after they arrived. Or spending an entire night saying “yes” to every crazy, fun thing they could think of.

But then Matt leaves town, breaking Ella’s heart. And when he shows up a year later—wanting to relive the night that brought them together—Ella isn’t sure whether Matt’s worth a second chance. Or if re-creating the past can help them create a different future.

Observant Owls Book Buddies

Book BuddiesThese owl book buddies are my favourite item in this months owlcrate. They are so so cute, some subscribers received cats instead of owls.

Another win for Owlcrate. All the items in the subscription box fits perfectly with the friendship theme and they are all cute bookish items that are perfect for a book subscription box. Next months theme is Mystery, and I haven’t read a mystery book in a long long time. I’m looking forward to see what the book pick will be.

What do you think of Owlcrate this month?

      They are fairly new I think this was only their 3rd or 4th box

      There is pretty much a subscription box for everything ! I’m actually having trouble with this book though I keep falling asleep while reading it:( .. I’m looking forward to see what the mystery book pick is for next month.
