Unboxing: BookSparks July #SRC2016 Box

BookSparks sends the best book mail!

If you follow me on Instagram then you may know that I won a box full of amazing books from BookSparks a few weeks ago. It was their May Summer Reading Challenge (SRC) box and I was so so happy. Thus far, I have LOVED the books that were included! You can watch my unboxing of that here or see below for full reviews on the ones I’ve gotten to read so far. Like I said the books have been great and when I received an email saying I had been selected for the July box… I screamed! I felt bad for my husband (who probably thought something was seriously wrong) and the animals (who fled with fur sticking up in every direction), but I was just too dang excited.

For the last week I have been (not so) patiently waiting and waiting. Just when I let it go and thought, it’ll be here soon. Relax. I walk out the door and trip over it (thanks FedEx man for not ringing the bell and letting me know my goodies arrived!) Poor Butters, I turned back right away with the box so I could open it… only then we could go for a walk!

Now for the really fun part… watch as I unbox the July SRC box then follow me on Instagram for more photos and reviews of each book! I can’t wait to share these with you. From the synopsis, which book are you most looking forward to??

Thank you again BookSparks!!

Book Review: First Comes Love by Emily Giffin

A story about how one moment can define our lives and how with love, it’s possible to move on.

Oh the feels! | 4/5 stars | Pre-order your copy of First Comes Love | Releases 6.28.16

Fifteen years after a family tragedy, sisters, Josie and Meredith, are still processing and grieving. What they don’t realize is just how much they are holding onto a situation that is out of their hands. A story about how one moment can define our lives and how with love, it’s possible to move on.

What I loved: 
Plot didn’t hold back, realistic and emotional roller coaster, focuses on family and the relationships between each member.

What I didn’t: 
Story was drawn out in a few places, Meredith’s character was rough and hard to care for.

If you liked The Fault in Our Stars, If I Stay, or any Nicholas Sparks book: Pick this up ASAP!
