Happy Saturday, everyone!
We’re still a bit giddy after revealing the theme for our April boxes last weekend. Did you guys see our theme reveal trailer? And did you hear that next month’s box is going to be BELLES & BEASTS and will include a brand-new YA fantasy retelling of the story of our favourite unashamedly bookish Disney princess and her brooding mysterious companion? You can find out lots more about our plans for the April box over on last weekend’s blog and you can subscribe now on our website.
We thought it was about time that we celebrated all the lovely things that we had in our February Troublemakers box. The featured book was All About Mia by Lisa Williamson. This book truly stunned us. The main character, Mia, feels so familiar to me; as I turned the pages I felt like I knew her inside out and I found myself wincing at her every mistake and teary-eyed at her failures. I was sad to say goodbye to Mia after I had finished the book and I instantly knew that we had to share her with all of you. Thank you so much to Lisa Williamson for writing such a funny, gut-wrenching, uplifting book, we can’t wait to chat about it in our Clubhouse meeting.
We have received so much love from all of our lovely subscribers about our Troublemakers box and we’d like to say thank you once again. All of the posts you tag us in, your messages and photos really mean the world to us. We screenshot each one and send it to each other and we feel so lucky that our phone galleries are full of kind people saying encouraging things! We had the chance to work with some amazing craftspeople in February too, so thank you to all of these talented people for going out of their way to make our Troublemakers box so fantastic.
So without further ado…here is what we included in our Troublemakers March box:
All About Mia by Lisa Williamson: Mia is a mouthy, brash, party-loving, wild child, who has a tendency to make terrible life choices. Fall in love with this feisty troublemaker as she defies her overachieving sisters and indulges in some seriously bad behaviour! www.lisawilliamsonauthor.com
