Still my favorite. I got two books this month, The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak and Startup by Doree Shafrir. I haven’t read Startup, but I liked The Impossible Fortress. We are 4/4 with these guys. If you like to read, I seriously recommend getting a subscription. $10 a month and you get a brand new, just released, hardback book of your choice. The Impossible Fortress. If you are a child of the 80’s, you’ll probably like it just for all the references. This takes place in 1987. Billy taught himself to code and make video games. He spends all his time with his friends, doing typical 14 year old boy stuff. While trying to figure out how to obtain copies of the Playboy with Vanna White on the cover, he kinda stumbles upon Mary, who also loves to code. Together they decide to build a game to enter a contest. This was different than a lot of what I’ve been reading, in a good way though. It didn’t end how I thought. Some stuff happened that just made me go ‘what?’, but it was really good.
This is a box for kids, aged 4-9. It’s got story cards, a puzzle, masks, and a sticker book. It’s all interactive with the app and focuses on learning, while being fun. My daughter is 8, and while she might be a bit too old for this, she loved it. I downloaded the app for her and she took it from there. Scanning the story cards will read the story to you. The sticker book also reads the story to you, but changes as you add stickers. She has since played with this again. We really liked this one.
This month wasn’t bad. It was a Blackberries and Bluebonnets theme. I got a bluebonnet soy candle, bluebonnet soap, blackberry balsamic vinegar, blackberry merlot jam, and a bluebonnet plant kit. I’ve burned the candle a few times and we’ve all tried the jam. My three month subscription is up though and I’m not going to renew. I only really like one or two things from each box, so it’s not worth it to keep getting it. Everyone on their Facebook page raves about it though, so it must just be me.
