So, today I am sure with you, my April box, (this is the 3rd box I’ve received, but I am starting my reviews now, because some changes to the boxes have been made) These boxes just continue to get better.

First and Foremost the book was one of my most anticipated reads this spring.

The Eliza’s, By Sara Shepard- When debut novelist Eliza Fontaine is found at the bottom of a hotel pool, her family at first assumes that it’s just another failed suicide attempt. But Eliza swears she was pushed, and her rescuer is the only witness.

Desperate to find out who attacked her, Eliza takes it upon herself to investigate. But as the publication date for her novel draws closer, Eliza finds more questions than answers. Like why are her editor, agent, and family mixing up events from her novel with events from her life? Her novel is completely fictional, isn’t it?

The deeper Eliza goes into her investigation while struggling with memory loss, the closer her life starts to resemble her novel, until the line between reality and fiction starts to blur and she can no longer tell where her protagonist’s life ends and hers begins. Buy On Amazon Here

Next we have the most amazing socks! Death Before Decaf by Gumball Poodle, while I am not a fan of brown and orange, the socks are so soft and comfortable, and very cushiony. And they are made in the USA if that’s something that’s important to you. Gumball Poodle Website

Are candles your thing? I am a candle junkie and I swear to that statement! The candle in this months box is called Mental Illness and it was made by Ditch Planet. It smells fantastic, not overbearing, but a mix of sweet, and spice.Ditch Planet has Candles, Room Sprays, and Air freshner’s. All with the most clever names!  Ditch Planet Candles

Next was a really cool hand drawn Robot Art Print, my boys snatched this from me as soon as they saw it. https://www.hauntedhouseofprojects.com/

And last, but not least a very cute button. I don’t use buttons, but my teen daughter collects them, so they always get put to use in our house. You should check Word For Word Factory out, they have some fun stuff for sale! Buttons, Pins, Prints! http://www.wordforwordfactory.com/

This box also included a letter from the Author Sara Shepard, which was a nice personal touch. I love reading about authors, and what drove them to write the story that I will be reading.
