Side 1: Rowan and Aelin (TOG) - Diana Worak
Side 2: 1 quote by Julie Kagawa, the other by Cassandra Clare – Stella’s Bookish Art
7. The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

My thoughts:

Since I’m yet to get to the book in Throne of Glass where we meet Rowan (and Aelin) I’m more interested in the sides of the prints with the quotes! Of course I’m not sure where these are either…I’ve only read one of Julie Kagawa’s books about faeries and I need to give it a re-read to see how I feel about it now and I’m working on Cassandra Clare’s books!

I haven’t read more than the first book of ACOTAR so I have no idea what the Illyrian fighting leathers are….That’s something I’m hoping to fix this year though!
Again, the same with the cushion cover? I don;’t know what this references…but I’ll get there!

My lip balm is SEELIE and it’s apple flavour/scented! I don’t think I’ve ever had an apple lip balm and it smells lovely!

I’m not sure how I feel about this exclusive edition of the Faerieland Colouring Book – the pictures have tiny sections to colour. You have to change colour so much you’re barely colouring! But then that might be end goal for learning to colour in/write with my non dominant hand so now I’ve changed my mind and think it might be something I’ll use…!

Finally, the Prince Cardan candle and the book!
I read this book in December as I was lucky enough to be granted a Netgalley ARC so I already know Cardan as much as we do in this book. I’m realy pleased to have a candle with his theme (Apparently they asked Holly Black what he’d smell like and made the candle from what she said which is just amazing!) and I’m also pleased to have a physical copy of the book too! Especially as it came with an exclusive Prince Cardan character artwork made by Merwild!
