LitCube: Roaring 20's Mystery

I've gotten behind in blog posts so a lot of what you'll read this week is stuff that is a week or two old. Sorry, lambs. You'll survive though, so there's that.

But let's talk about my June Litcube!

The theme this month was "Roaring 20's Mystery" and I'm not a big roaring 20's fan so I was going to cancel and then missed the deadline so here we are. The good news is that we got some pretty fun stuff this month!
The large item is an 18x18 pillow cover! Guess what is ridiculously difficult to find in a store? An 18x18 pillow! I can find 20x20, but no 18x18. Sigh. I hate, hate, hate having to order something off of Amazon when it's just one thing, you know? But it's a beautiful pillow cover nonetheless and it'll end up on my couch eventually. Or maybe it'll be in my room. Who knows.
Some other goodies is a magnet with a quote from The Great Gatsby and an art deco headband. It's so pretty, though I don't know when I'd really wear it, BUT! These headbands never stay on my head. I have decided I must have a weird shaped head or something.
We also got champagne bubble scented foaming sugar scrub, which I will most definitely be using these last few weeks of pregnancy!

The book this month is EVERGREEN FALLS by Kimberly Freeman. If you look at the reviews for it on Goodreads they are kind of bizarre. The ones written in English either say it's terrible or it's mediocre. The ones in a foreign language I assume gush about it because those ones are all 5 stars. So who knows. My reading list is pretty long so it might be awhile until I get to this one.

Overall? Not a bad box. The theme for July is "I'd Rather Be A Mermaid" and I am pretty excited about that. I bet the goodies are going to be pretty fun, so I'm excited!

Try looking at either Hobby Lobby or Joanns for 18x18 pillow forms. And you might be able to get a coupon to boot! HL always has a 40% off on their app. Joanns has various text coupons too.

Ooh the July theme is fun! Anyway, glad you liked this box okay. I've never read The Great Gatsby, so while those items are cool, I only know the film version. As for the book, maybe something was lost in translation if the foreign edition had better reviews? Who knows?
