Hello and welcome to another Book of the Month unboxing. I am so excited to share my most recent pick for this book box. Can I just say how much I love that I can pick a book that I want instead of just getting something random I might not be interested in? It is just so wonderful to spend your money on a book box and get something you actually love and look forward to. Not sponsored or anything, I just love this book box. Anyway, on to my August pick!
Whenever I see this bright blue color in my mailbox I get a huge smile on my face because it means I am about to open some book mail!
I have to say, I love the little quote on the inside of the box. It is a nice little touch. I also like that they pack their books in such a way that it is very safe and doesn’t move much within a box. I have been subscribed for years and I have yet to have a damaged book. Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate the cute bookmark, simple and cute.
A stunning debut for author Evie Dunmore and her Oxford suffragists in which a fiercely independent vicar’s daughter takes on a powerful duke in a fiery love story that threatens to upend the British social order.
England, 1879. Annabelle Archer, the brilliant but destitute daughter of a country vicar, has earned herself a place among the first cohort of female students at the renowned University of Oxford. In return for her scholarship, she must support the rising women’s suffrage movement. Her charge: recruit men of influence to champion their cause. Her target: Sebastian Devereux, the cold and calculating Duke of Montgomery who steers Britain’s politics at the Queen’s command. Her challenge: not to give in to the powerful attraction she can’t deny for the man who opposes everything she stands for.
Sebastian is appalled to find a suffragist squad has infiltrated his ducal home, but the real threat is his impossible feelings for green-eyed beauty Annabelle. He is looking for a wife of equal standing to secure the legacy he has worked so hard to rebuild, not an outspoken commoner who could never be his duchess. But he wouldn’t be the greatest strategist of the Kingdom if he couldn’t claim this alluring bluestocking without the promise of a ring…or could he?
Locked in a battle with rising passion and a will matching her own, Annabelle will learn just what it takes to topple a duke…. –goodreads.com
-Why This Book-
When I read this description I was instantly moving my mouse towards the make this my book button. The first thing I saw and really liked was that this seemed to be a good about a strong intelligent woman who does not settle because she was able to from a destitute background and ended up getting a scholarship to study at Oxford. Also, women suffrage, I love a book that revolves around women’s rights!
Then I read even more and I saw this turning into a quirky historical romance with a grumpy guy. For some reason this is just a trope that I love. I don’t really know why, but it is and I am so excited about this book.
