YA BookCase.Club Unboxing {June 2017}

Books, and books, and books, and books!
Who doesn't love books? Actually, I have known a few people who have actually admitted out loud that they don't read, and they are usually pretty okay with that. I'm always just like, "But, why, though?!" I can't imagine never taking a trip through a story ever again. This is why I make sure I'm well stocked with books by having a few book subscription boxes. One of those magical boxes of goodness is BookCase.Club, and I have been getting the young adult boxes. Oh yeah, I'm a 32 year old mother of two who still reads young adult, come at me, bro! Let's see what came in this month's box. 



Upon opening June's box, I noticed immediately an author I recognize and love, and that's Holly Black. The first book I ever read of her's was Tithe (Modern Faerie Tales Series), about a girl who discovers that she's actually a fairy. Her books are so well written and you find yourself falling into a magical world of mystical creatures every time you open the pages of her stories. So I was excited about receiving The Darkest Part of the Forrest. It's currently at my brothers house because his fiance has really wanted to read it, and since I'm currently eyeballs deep in another book, I let him borrow it. The other book, however, I had never heard of, but it sounds really good!

The Darkest Part of the Forrest
By Holly Black
________________________________



In the woods is a glass coffin. It rests on the ground, and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives....

Hazel and her brother, Ben, live in Fairfold, where humans and the Folk exist side by side. Tourists drive in to see the lush wonders of Faerie and, most wonderful of all, the horned boy. But visitors fail to see the danger.

Since they were children, Hazel and Ben have been telling each other stories about the boy in the glass coffin, that he is a prince and they are valiant knights, pretending their prince would be different from the other faeries, the ones who made cruel bargains, lurked in the shadows of trees, and doomed tourists. But as Hazel grows up, she puts aside those stories. Hazel knows the horned boy will never wake.

Until one day, he does....

As the world turns upside down, Hazel has to become the knight she once pretended to be. But as she's swept up in new love, with shifting loyalties and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?

I've loved every BookCase.Club box I've received and I find the boxes to not only be affordable, but give enough variety that a subscription is more than worth it. They Also have other genres such as paranormal romance, thriller, cookbooks, military, and even kids books! 

Young Adult books not your cup of tea? Check out BookCase.Club's impressive selection of genre boxes. They even have a BookCase box for kids!
