The theme of the October box is Spooky!  Every box comes with a card detailing the contents of the box.

A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

The featured book this month is A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis.  This book was released on October 6, 2015 and has a 3.85 star rating on Goodreads.  The retail price of this book is $17.99.  The Amazon price is currently $12.63.

Here is a description of the book from Goodreads:

Grace Mae knows madness.

She keeps it locked away, along with her voice, trapped deep inside a brilliant mind that cannot forget horrific family secrets. Those secrets, along with the bulge in her belly, land her in a Boston insane asylum.

When her voice returns in a burst of violence, Grace is banished to the dark cellars, where her mind is discovered by a visiting doctor who dabbles in the new study of criminal psychology. With her keen eyes and sharp memory, Grace will make the perfect assistant at crime scenes. Escaping from Boston to the safety of an ethical Ohio asylum, Grace finds friendship and hope, hints of a life she should have had. But gruesome nights bring Grace and the doctor into the circle of a killer who stalks young women. Grace, continuing to operate under the cloak of madness, must hunt a murderer while she confronts the demons in her own past.

In this beautifully twisted historical thriller, Mindy McGinnis, acclaimed author of Not a Drop to Drink and In a Handful of Dust, explores the fine line between sanity and insanity, good and evil—and the madness that exists in all of us

Poster of A Madness So Discreet and a Letter from Mindy McGinnis!

Wow!  I'm so happy that they included a poster of the book and a letter from the author explaining how she came up with the idea for the book.  This is so cool!  I think every book subscription should include awesome extras like this.

Edgar Allan Poe-lka Dot Canvas Pouch by Out of Print Clothing

This is my kind of pouch!  I will definitely be storing some things in this awesome pouch.  Cool!

Retail Value: $12

Sugar Skull Erasers from NPW

These are so cool.  I probably won't use them as erasers but I'll put them in my office as creepy decor.

Retail Value:  $4?

Scented Beads from Adventure Scents

These are scented beads in the scent Vampires Lair.  I guess you can smell these beads while reading a spooky book at night to really get that creepy feel.  The smell does remind me of vampires.  Creepy.

Retail Value:  $4

Magnetic Monster Bookmarks from Craftedvan

I love these magnetic bookmarks!  They are very cute and I've been wanting to buy some magnetic bookmarks so this is a nice addition to this month's box.

Retail Value:  $5?

Tara's Take:  This box really impressed me!  I love all the awesome book goodies included and I really love the letter from the author.  That is such a wonderful addition to this month's box.  If you love young adult books like me I definitely recommend subscribing to this box.  This is a great value for all the wonderful items.  This one is definitely a keeper.
