ARC #Review: TEXTROVERT by Lindsey Summers

TEXTROVERT

Author: Lindsey Summers
Series: N/A
Source: ARC via Publisher
Publisher: KidsCanPress
Publication Date: May 2, 2017
Rating: 3.5/5 stars

Summary:

It’s bad enough when high-school senior Keeley grabs the wrong phone while leaving her small town’s end-of-summer fair. It’s even worse when she discovers that the phone she now has belongs to the obnoxious, self-centered Talon and that he’s just left for football camp … with her phone. Reluctantly, the two agree to forward messages for a week. And as Keeley gets to know Talon, she starts to like him. Keeley learns there’s more to Talon than the egocentric jock most people see. There’s more to Keeley, too. Texting Talon, she can step out of the shadow of her popular twin brother. Texting Talon, she can be the person she’s always wanted to be. 

Sparks fly when the two finally meet to exchange their phones. But while Keeley has been playing a part online, Talon has been keeping a secret. He has a different connection to Keeley — one that has nothing to do with phones, and one that will make their new relationship all but impossible. Knowing what she now knows, can Keeley trust him? And can love in the present erase mistakes of the past?

Purchase:
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book and decided to review it. This in no way affects my opinion.

This book was super adorable and exactly what I needed at the time. It was light and fluffy but also had some more serious moments and thoughts of introspection that made me think. However there were some moments that I rolled my eyes and said "That wouldn't happen" and it was very obvious that the author didn't go to high school where Football Was Life because the boys would NEVER be allowed to have their cellphones on the sideline or they would be murdered.

Subscription Box #Review: Nerdy Post

I love surprises and subscription boxes so I decided to buy a few different ones and then review them for you guys because why not! So you will get to see a few different subscription box reviews over the next few weeks because they all arrived!

Nerdy Post/Nerdy Tees

Where To Buy? 

CrateJoy

How Often Does It Come? 

Every Month and each month has a new theme. I bought just the Nerdy Post and the theme for the month was "Disney."


Price?

Each Nerdy Post Crate: $13.95USD/month plus shipping
Shipping to Canada is $9.00USD; Shipping to the US is $6.00USD, so it wasn't worth it for me to ship it to the US and then pick it up as it would cost me more money.

Each Nerdy Tees Crate: $15.95USD/month plus shipping
Shipping to Canada is $9.00USD; Shipping to the US is $6.00 USD


Shipping Time?

It ships on the 15th of the month, and I believe mine arrived to my Canadian address within 10 days. 


Ordering Process?

Because Nerdy Post is connected to CrateJoy, the ordering process is really easy. Especially if you use CrateJoy often, then it saves all your information. That means that it is super easy to purchase, cancel, skip a month, etc.

Subscription Box Review: J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World of Harry Potter by LootCrate

I love Harry Potter. I have a Harry Potter tattoo and so much Harry Potter merchandise that my room is practically the Ravenclaw Tower. So when LootCrate announced their specific Harry Potter themed bimonthly subscription box, I hit subscribe so fast I broke a nail (no seriously). I have already reviewed the FIRST BOX which you can view by clicking here and the SECOND BOX, but I decided I would review every single one that I get so you can see what is inside and decide if you want to subscribe to it as well. This will spoil the contents of the box, so if you are getting this box, don't scroll any further! But if you are just curious, keep scrolling.

Just so everyone knows, I live in Canada, so the prices and such that I am going to talk about are in Canadian Dollars and shipping times are international from the US to Canada as well.

How Often Does It Come? 

Every Two Months

I do wish it was more frequent but I feel like I do not need a monthly box of Harry Potter things. That would be Too Much. My mom would kick me out.

Price?

Each Crate: $66.95
Three Crates Over Six Months: $196.83
Six Crates Over A Year: $385.63

I subscribed for the whole year, which dropped the price per crate by about $3. Not a huge savings but I knew I wanted to get all of them so it did not matter to me about the cost per crate. However, if you are cost saving or budgeting, this might not be the box for you. It is almost $20 a crate more than the regular LootCrate and you get the LootCrate every month. The trade off is this is ALL Harry Potter things instead of a medley of fandoms.

Shipping Time?

They say usually about 10-20 days for international boxes once they ship them out. They ship on the 15th of the month that you get the box, so you should have it by the end of the month provided your post office is doing it's thing properly.

This box was delayed and they sent it via UPS which got it to me VERY quickly. I was notified it was shipping to me AFTER I had received it.

Ordering Process?

The really cool thing about this crate is that when you order, it asks you not only your shirt size, which has been changed to unisex and up to 3XL, but also asks you your Hogwarts house. THIS BOX FINALLY HAD SPECIFIC HOUSE THINGS AND IT WAS MAGNIFICENT. For a Ravenclaw, that was really fantastic for me and I'm sure Hufflepuffs will agree as well.
