After seeing a tweet sent out by a company called Sherbet Lane asking if any bloggers would be interested in reviewing their upcoming subscription box, I went for it and sent an email to its owner, Claire. A few days later, I got an email back saying that over 100 bloggers had entered and being a small blog, I didn’t think we had a chance but then she revealed that we had been chosen! Before we get into the cute, letterbox size box, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Claire for allowing us to review her work and I can say now, this is definitely a subscription box I’ll be getting again in the future! If you have subscribed, please be aware of spoilers below!
Hi! Welcome to yet another series on Two Book Thieves. As well as promoting our own blog this year, we also want to spread the love amongst the blogging community! As well as my current Bloggers I’m Currently Loving series, we also came up with the idea of ‘interviewing’ some of our favourites. Each person featured will be asked a few questions by us and you get to read their answers and get to know the person behind the blog! We hope you love them as much as we do.
For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game – it’s a way of life. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships – only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.
Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.
I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Iceland twice now, and I have to say it’s magic never gets tiring. Despite Iceland being an island with a small population and unforgiving weather conditions, it’s becoming a more and more popular travel location, and it isn’t hard to see why!
(P.S. this is a very photo-heavy post!)
Welcome to part II of the bloggers who I am obsessed with at the moment. I’ll just go ahead and say that bloggers are already smashing it in 2018 and I want to do whatever I can to promote them and congratulate their hard work because let’s face it, this game isn’t easy. In slightly unrelated news, you may have noticed that we now have our own domain name! We finally made this leap and now I can’t stop staring at it. I don’t miss the ‘wordpress.com’ at all. Anyway, back to the important people who have inspired me, made me laugh and even made me cry recently. Continue reading “Bloggers I’m Currently Loving Part II”
Thank you to Lydia and Philippa at Titan Books for sending us both ARCs and finished copies of this wonderfully dark and unique book!
So if you’ve been following us for a while, you’ve probably seen that I went on the trip of a lifetime last July. I was lucky enough to spend two weeks travelling up the north coast of Cuba, and since I never wrote a full blog post about it, I thought it was about time I shared what I did there (plus a lot of photos from my trip!)
