My thoughts:

I didn’t realise who this author was at first! (I’ve followed her on goodreads for a number of years as a book blogger.) So, that’s exciting! This is an exclusive edition too, it has sprayed pages and came with a bookmark and signed sticker.

It seems weird having a Black Panther books sleeve but no Black Panther book to go it it! I’ll have to see if I can find something worthy.
I really like the page markers! I think I’ll be scared to damage them though. Maybe I’ll just slip them between pages.
I really need to catch up with Casandra Clares books, I really need to read about these guys on these cards!

Fangirl lunch box! The artwork on this is really good, it looks just like the artwork that was on the book, I realised what it was immediately. I don’t have a lunch box because I use jars with my name on as I don’t like plastic, but this one seems alright. Now I have to decide what I want to put in it. Lunch? Snacks? Hmmmm
And lastly, the camp half-blood pin. I like pins, I have plans for them and this is just the perfect size.

I think my favourite item is the page markers. I look forward to losing them pretty much straight away!
I’m also nervous about reading this book, I hope I like it!
