Top Ten Tuesday: Owlcrate or Shelflovecrate Books I Want to Read by the End of the Year

Dear Rebellious Readers,

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog post hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and this week’s topic is one I came up with myself because the other topic I didn’t have anything to write about. So my topic is Owlcrate and Shelflovecrate books I want to read by the end of the year.

I am super behind on my Owlcrate and Shelflovecrate subscription box books. So I have made a goal to read at least 10 of them before years end. Here are the 10 I am most excited about and plan to read and review before the end of the year.

1. The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg
Shelflovecrate book of the month for June 2019


Why: Disney like Theme Park with Robots and a Murder Mystery?! I am so in. Plus it is told in a unique way with courtroom testimony, interviews, and Ana(the robot accused of murder)’s memories. I love books told in unique ways. 


2. We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal 

Owlcrate and Shelflovecrate Book of the Month May 2019


Why: Arabian mythology fantasy novel. With the tag line “People lived because she killed. People died because he lived.” This book sounds right up my ally. I love any time of mythology and have never read a book with Arabian mythology. 


3. Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan

Owlcrate and Shelflovecrate Book of the Month April 2019


Why: A girl who can talk to gods, a prince in danger, and a boy with a secret. Forbidden Romance. Dark and Light. This book sounds like it was written for me.  


4. The Bird and the Blade by Megan Bannen

Shelflovecrate Book of the Month July 2018 


Why: Mongolian Empire with a Tournament/Trial/Game. Yes, I am so excited. I have a weird interest in the Mongal people. My Grandfather was kinda obsessed with Genghis Khan. So anytime I hear about anything to do with them I think of my grandfather. 


5. Romanov by Nadine Brandes

Shelflovecrate 2nd Book of the Month May 2019


Why: One of my favorite movies as a kid was Anatastia and since then I have always loved anything to do with Anastasia. Now excuse me while I go and sing Once Upon A December. 


6. Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau-Preto

Owlcrate Book of the Month February 2019 


Why: Phoniex riders and siblings relationships where they are fighting to the death. I can’t believe I haven’t read this book already. 


7. The Lost Girl by Anne Ursu

Owlcrate Jr Book of the Month February 2019


Why: I really loved the last middle-grade book I read. I mean I loved it. It was a past Owlcrate Jr. book called The Polar Bear Explorers Club. So when I won this book from Owlcrate Jr. I was so excited but then got distracted by other books. I have heard great things about this book and am pushing it up on my TBR. 


8. House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig

Owlcrate Book of the Month August 2019


Why: I love any kind of retelling but fairy tale ones are my favorites. I have never read one placed on the story of the twelve dancing princesses and I am really excited too because this book looks so dark and you all know I love dark books. 


9. Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

Owlcrate Book of the Month June 2019


Why: I loved An Enchantment of Ravens and am so excited to read Rogerson’s second book. Especially because it is about guardians and they guard a library. Yes, you read that right a library. This book is going to be amazing. I just know it. 


10. Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh 

Shelflovecrate Book of the Month January 2018 


Why: Necromancers? LGBTQ+ rep? Yes, please. The second book in the doulogy already came out and I can’t wait to dig in. 

Do you have any backed up subscription box books? or are you good at reading them the month you get them?

Yours in Rebellion

    1. Yes, I do. I have been with Owlcrate since March 2016 and Shelflovecrate since November 2017. I don’t get Owlcrate Jr. every month only twice but I am hoping to get them again soon. Sadly I live in FL we don’t get cold weather.

    1. I will need all the luck. Thanks. I am not great at sticking to a TBR. I am really looking forward to Romanov. It is high on the list of 10 to read soon. I hope this month. I might make this a historical month.

  1. I’ve heard good things about The Kingdom, and Crown of feathers looks amazing. Plus phoenix? Sorcery of Thorns is another one I’m super interested in even though I haven’t read the first one yet- love that premise though!

    1. Oh, it is not a sequel Sorcery of Thorns is a standalone in a different world sorry if I wasn’t more clear. Her first book An enchantment of Ravens is a different story. I has fae and reminds me of a fairy tale. I know I don’t see many Phoenix books.

  2. REALLY need to read “Romanov.” Don’t subscribe to book boxes, but I bought this one because Anastasia re-telling had me all like, “YES, PLEASE!!” 🙂
