Book Case Club: June YA Box Unboxing

Happy Thursday! I hope you’re having a fabulous week so far. Here’s my unboxing for the June YA Book Case Club box @bookcaseclub. Last month we received Garth Nix’s Newt’s Emerald and Holly Black’s The Darkest Part of the Forest. Aren’t these covers gorgeous?.

I’ve read Sabriel by Garth Nix and I’m excited to read Newt’s Emerald. Regency era where a girl has to disguise herself as a boy to solve the mystery of her family’s missing heirloom, The Newington Emerald? YES please! I’ve also seen it described as a cross between Mary Kowal Robinette’s Glamour series and Gail Carrier’s Protectarate series (minus the steampunk). How awesome does that sound?

I’ve seen ARCs of The Cruel Prince by Holly Black circulate on bookstagram and it sounds amazing! But I’ve also realized that I haven’t read anything by Holly Black! 😅 The Spiderwick Chronicles were really popular a few years ago when I was teaching but I never picked it up. I was thinking I should start there but then I received The Darkest Part of the Forest from Book Case Club! Yay! I’m so excited! My experience with Fae stories is very limited so I’m eager to read more especially since Holly Black seems to be quite prolific in the Fae YA fantasy genre!

Have you read any of these books? What did you think? (No spoilers please!) If you’ve read books by these authors already, which is your favorite?

If you’re looking to build your library or you love the selections sent here, I highly recommend Book Case Club! It’s a monthly book subscription and you get two YA books! There are other genres too like fiction, mystery, and children’s. You can use my code Santucci15 for 15% of your first box. (It’s only $9.99 a month!)
