Did I buy another subscription box even though the mailing system in my country is a travesty? Yes. Was it worth it?? Absolutely
Wildest Dreams Box was the only one I knew that was actually doing a Pride theme during the Pride Month, so it was an obvious choice.
The theme for June was: Love, YA (yes, because of Love, Simon. It’s perfect)
You can’t do a Simon box and forget about the all mighty Oreos. I’m actually impressed these made it through customs… However I got a couple of tasty treats
to share. And I plan to eat the soon.
Meet Cute Vanilla Cappuccino Scented Candle by Taken Moons. It smells amazing, apparently it’s inspired on the oncoming novel What if It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera. For someone as in love with coffee as me this is like, THE scented Candle
Next goes the tea: Love, Simon Inspired Rich Chocolate Tea by RosieLeaTea. I haven’t tried it yet but I had never heard of a Chocolate tea before and I’m excited to try it. I like to drink tea on cold days and with a good book; we are currently in winter and I just got a brand new book…
Last before the book (and kind of a really obvious clue) is the Exclusive Leah Postcard designed by Lia from @lost_in_a_story. The art is super cute and the quote is one of my favorites:
It’s like it doesn’t even matter if I like my body, because there’s always someone there to remind me I shouldn’t.
And the book!!
Leah Burke—girl-band drummer, master of deadpan, and Simon Spier’s best friend from the award-winning Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda—takes center stage in this novel of first love and senior-year angst.
When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat—but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. An anomaly in her friend group, she’s the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends—not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.
So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high. It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting—especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.
