5 tips to read those classics you’ve been avoiding

So, you bought a famous classic book that you really want to read someday? And you are starting to wonder if someday will really come? I know that feeling. There's a deluxe version of Anna Karenina looking skeptically at me every time I stand in front of my bookshelf, because I've been avoiding it. I don't worry, though. I've learned to deal with this "I want to read the classics but not right now, thank you" feeling. I hope my findings might be useful for you!
Subscription Boxes

Owlcrate June 2016 Unboxing

Recently I discovered this Young Adult subscription box called Owlcrate. Owlcrate is a subscription service that each month sends you a surprise book (either a Young Adult or Adult 16+ novel) as well as 3-5 bookish keepsakes such as figures, bookmarks, jewelry, stickers, socks, etc. Each box has different theme related to literature.

I thought about getting my first box for a couple of weeks, since each month costs $29.99 + shipping. Finally, I ordered June's box since the theme was... ROYALTY.  Here's my unboxing.
