I received 6 items in my subscription box.

This month’s box is inspired by books that were turned into musicals. I have to say as much as I love to read, I am not a big fan of musicals. So this will be a leap for me.

My first item is a Shirt from Appraising Pages  It comes in a gray color with a quote “The plan is to fan this spark into a flame.” I love the soft feel of the shirt and it’s simple but inspiring message. It is part of the lyrics from “My Shot” from the musical Hamilton: An American Musical. The play is about the life of founding father Alexander Hamilton and inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow. I have not heard of this one until now, so of course, I did my research on Youtube and Google. I can see the younger generation enjoying this very much and actually will learn something from it. I would probably take the time to go see this. Take your spark and fan it into a flame!!!

My next item will help you put together your musical, it’s a notebook from Appraising Pages. You can keep your notes, quotes, and musical lyrics. What is your favorite musical? What is your favorite song from that musical?

Next item: Planner Stickers from Appraising Pages. Cute little stickers to put on your calendar to remind you what book you are reading this week. I always seem to jump from book to book. I am currently reading 2 books this week.

I love the bookmarks that are sent each month. Each one has an inspiring quote and beautiful watercolor. This month’s bookmark from Lexy Olivia has a Les Miserables lyric printed on it…”Even the darkest night will end and the Sun will rise.” It is from the finale of Les Miserables. I have read this book as it was required reading in high school. I imagine some of you have seen the movie version featuring Hugh Jackman. That was a good movie. Have you seen the movie or have you read the book?

My new favorite pair of earrings are in this box. They are simple in design and color but make quiet an impact. They are also inspired by the musical Hamilton and designed by Tanglewood Lane. The Other 51 referring to writings of Hamilton that defended the Constitution. What do you think?

My last item is also musical theater-themed. It is a bath bomb by Michael Kelly Co. inspired by the musical Wicked. Wicked is inspired about the witches from the Wizard of Oz. This bath bomb is called Wicked Diva bomb and just wait til you see what happens. It is simply “wicked.”

The water turns completely black!! As I got into the tub I cackled…”I’ll get you my pretty and your little dog too!” LOL! It looked a little off putting but it had a wonderful scent and left my skin feeling smooth. LOVED IT!!

Ok, that’s the end, there’s nothing more except I think now I may be interested in watching a few musicals. The ones that inspired this box seemed interesting. I found myself enjoying this box, I hope you enjoyed yours too. Let’s keep reading!

Tell me what you thought about this month’s Bookish Box!
