My thoughts:

I was sure that this book was going to be Wonder Woman when I heard the theme, which I knew was going to be in another box so I was very please when it turned out not to be! I’ve not heard of this book but I really am looking forward to reading it. I know little of the Suffragettes other than they existed, we were not taught about them at school. I’ve picked up bits here and there and I’ve seen the film, which I believe was criticised for excluding the black women who also were in the fight?
Anyway, from this cover it looks like this book doesn’t so that’s even better.

Meraki candle! Don’t really need to say anything about these by now, do I? For those wondering, this is a totally different Hermione scent than the one that came in the Meraki Candles Sidekicks box. The scent notews of this one are plum, rose and patchouli.

Not too bothered about the Heir of Fire magnet to be honest with you AS I STILL HAVEN’T READ IT YET!! Too many books, so little reading time.

Apparently many Viking warriors were actually women, so this coaster is very appropriate (though shouldn’t it say ‘woman’?), even if I will never drink enough drinks to require all my coasters. Maybe I should have a party, a book reading party of course.

Ah! Another notebook! This one has pretty palms on it, if it had been blank inside I could have used it to practice my botanical line drawings, but it’s lined so I’m putting in writing rules for myself.

And finally, the pretty necklace. I look forward to seeing how it fits in with Crooked Kingdom! I should read that book…
