If you follow my blog at all, you know I don't post much about myself. Hardly at all, in fact, except for posts about my books. In an attempt to be more active on my blog, I've started High Five Friday. I'm not sure what it will look like yet, or even if I'll be able to post every Friday; but the goal is to post some fun stuff about myself as I look back on the week in effort to allow readers to get to know me, and for me to get to know my readers.

Today I'm reviewing the items that came in the Shelflove Crate 25 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar box, which was full of bookish Christmas-themed goodies to celebrate the 25 days of Christmas, advent-calendar style.

Shelflove Crate is a monthly young adult fantasy book subscription box that occasionally curates other special edition boxes, like the 25 Days of Christmas box. I don't have a subscription to their monthly book boxes, but I do purchase the occasional single box if I want to read the book they're featuring and if I like the fandoms they're including for the rest of the merch. I've always been impressed with the items they include and their quality.

Hence why I purchased the 25 Days of Christmas box. Plus, how fun is it to unwrap a bookish goodie once a day in December until Christmas?

Without further ado, here are the items that came in the 25 Days of Christmas box. Click the image to expand it and view my notes. (Note that day 3 is missing; it was an iron-on patch that I would never have used so I got rid of it before deciding to do this review.)
