Overview: OwlCrate is a monthly subscription box that contains a newly published hardcover Young Adult book with a special cover, 3-5 other items, as well as exclusive goodies from publishers and authors. Each box also has a unique theme every month!
Review: I was super excited to receive this box! With the raves I’ve heard about OwlCrate, I knew it was time to give them a go. The box came one day after I got my tracking number.
The small postcard on top goes into detail about each item inside the box. There is also a booklet with an author interview, word search, suggested reads if you liked the book, an interview with an artist, photo challenge, and next month’s theme!
But let’s get to the good stuff…
The book in this month’s box was Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore. After opening the book, I found an autographed bookplate, flower seeds, and a note from the author!
Next we have two adorable magnet bookmarks from Craftedvan starring Where the Wild Things Are, one of my favorite childhood books! There’s also this cute fox coaster (don’t you remember how much I love foxes??!!) from artist Kristin Askland that says ‘All good things are wild and free.’
Check out the moss and mint candle from In The Wick of Time that’s strong but so nice. I really liked that it played into the theme and was a scent I wouldn’t normally pick for myself. There’s a small pin featuring artwork on the postcard. Then there is this BEAUTIFUL art print from Studio Ghibili’s Princess Mononoke by artist Audra Auclair. I have plans for this print and a few others I have bought. Keep your eyes peeled for that post.
Drum roll please for my favorite item in the box… a Harry Potter mug! Featuring the Forbidden Forest and the creatures that inhabit it by artist Cara Kozik! We see Hagrid’s house, a unicorn, a centaur, and the Weasley’s car with Aragog the giant spider! The loose leaf tea in a cute resealable pouch from Riddle’s Tea Shoppe that tastes like blueberry pie is geek-approved! Spolier: it’s delicious….
I did purchase my subscription through Cratejoy which is an awesome site for all kinds of monthly boxes for anyone! If you’re interested, you should totally use my code and get five bucks. I get five bucks too, but what you get out of it is way more important, right?!
Bottom Line: Love Young Adult reads? Love bookish items from your favorite fandoms? You’ll love OwlCrate!
Geeky Gal’s Score: 5 out of 5 stars!
