Everything in my April 2018 box!

I picked Historical Fiction this month. My box includes one (1) newly released book, plus several bookish goods.

Bookmark. This month’s bookmark features a famous line from Victor Hugo:

To learn to read is to light a fire. Every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.

The back of the bookmark has PageHabit logo on it.

Socks. We love socks and this pair is simply perfect for bookworms. It’s in black and white, with “Read Books” printed all over it.

Pencil. We always have a room for cute pencils. This one features a cute cat eraser in a box!

The box even has flaps!

The cat looks quite at home in it. How are we going to use this now? It’s too cute!

This subscription always includes a letter from the featured book’s author.

It makes reading the book that more interesting for sure. We really appreciate the effort of PageHabit to make sure the author has a connection with the reader!

To make it even more personal, there are also author annotations all throughout the book!

Hotel On Shadow Lake By Daniela Tully ($20.24)

Suspenseful and compelling, Daniela Tully’s Hotel on Shadow Lake is at once an intricate mystery, an epic romance, and a Gothic family saga.

When Maya was a girl in Germany, her grandmother was everything to her: teller of magical fairy tales, surrogate mother, best friend. Then, shortly after Maya’s sixteenth birthday, her grandmother disappeared without a trace, leaving Maya with only questions to fill the void.

Twenty-seven years later, her grandmother’s body is found in a place she had no connection to: the Montgomery Resort in upstate New York. How did she get there? Why had she come? Desperate for answers, Maya leaves her life in Germany behind and travels to America, where she is drawn to the powerful family that owns the hotel and seemingly the rest of the town.

Soon Maya is unraveling secrets that go back decades, from 1910s New York to 1930s Germany and beyond. But when she begins to find herself spinning her own lies in order to uncover the circumstances surrounding her grandmother’s death, she must decide whether her life and a chance at true love are worth risking for the truth.

This is one jampacked story, encompassing mystery, crime, tragedy, romance, and even greed.

Going through the pages feels like unraveling a family secret little by little, and it was so thrilling. Some part of the story was even set in 1930s Germany!

The notes from the author shares some details on how she wrote the book. It feels as if I’m beside the author who is telling me about her writing journey! Awesome!

So the hotel in the novel is based on an actual hotel! I really like these little notes that guide me as I go through the book.

There are more and more revelations as I go deeper into the story. Apparently, the author also based some scenes on true events.

The notes also add excitement to the reading experience. I’m always so excited to finish the chapter because I also look forward to the next annotation.

PageHabit included an information card encouraging writers to submit their story for a chance to get published!

Well, this box is full of surprises. Here’s a card featuring a poem by Lily Bollinger entitled Ghosts.

There’s another poem at the back of the card, and its title is Wind.

I enjoyed this month’s box from PageHabit! I’m so glad I chose Historical Fiction because this month’s book choice is so intriguing. The fact that some of the places and scenes in the story are based on true events make it even more fascinating to read. Of course, I liked the extras like the socks and cute pencil too. All in all, it’s an ideal subscription for book lovers who also appreciate bookish goods. You can change genres every month and you can always get an add-on if you want to receive more than one book. Like we always say, there’s no such thing as too many books!
