May 2018 My Chronicle Book Box @MyChronicleBB #BookBox #CrimeFiction #MyChronicleBookBox *SP

I was so thrilled when Louise from My Chronicle Book Box said that she wanted to send me her May 2018 collection.

These book boxes are so well put together, of the highest quality and so exciting to unpack

So, let's have a look at what delights were inside the box this month.

Of course, the most important things are the books! Three amazing crime novels were nestled inside the box; The Darkness by Ragnar Jonasson; as Louise says, it's a fabulous example of Scandi noir (although technically of course it's Icelandic noir!); The Lost by Mari Hannah, the first in a new series for this great writer of police procedurals; and Class Murder by Leigh Russell. Class Murder is the 10th in the Geraldine Steel series but stands alone quite easily. 

Each of the books is accompanied by a book plate signed by the author, exclusive interviews with Leigh and Mari, plus a lovely letter from Mari.

But it's not only books that are in this box of treasures. Oh no. There's some really gorgeous extras too. I was delighted to find such a selection of delights for a book lover;

A very useful pen pot which will be a great addition to my (rather untidy) desk. The pot was designed and made by Bespoke Verse, an independent maker of all things literary who you may have seen on Dragon's Den. 

A lovely Iceland themed bookmark made from vintage maps by Laura at MadeWithMaps on Etsy.
This bookmark is unique to me as every single bookmark is different as it was made with a different map!

A great fun Harry Potter charm. These are designed and made here in the UK by independent jeweller The Carat Shop on licence from Warner Brothers.

And finally, a wonderful print inspired by Sherlock Holmes designed by the very talented Maria at ArtsAndTravelPrints on Etsy
