I’m sure many of you have already heard of Owlcrate. It is a monthly subscription box. Every month you receive 3-5 bookish items as well as a newly published YA novel within this subscription box. The box is $29.99 a month.
I have been receiving Owlcrates since September of 2015. That means I’ve already gotten 9 Owlcrates. I have never been disappointed in this subscription service. I always receive items of equal or greater value to what I paid for the box. Also, it ensures me that I step out of my “box” to try books I otherwise may have overlooked. I am always excited to see my Owlcrate has been delivered. This month was no different.
The theme for June was Royalty. In this month’s box I received 4 bookish items in addition to a newly published YA novel.
This month I received:
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton , and Jodi Meadows
Description from Goodreads: “At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren’t for Jane to worry about. Jane gets to be Queen of England.”
I had never heard of this book before receiving it in my Owlcrate this month. I’m intrigued by this retelling. Like many of the books I’ve received in Owlcrates in the past this is not a book I would have picked up on my own. However, I will be happy to give this book a try. I have found that the books in these boxes are the best to use in a reading slump. I don’t have any expectations for them so I can enjoy them with fresh eyes. All in all I’m happy with the book choice and am excited to give it a try. (Whenever I finish the 10000000 other books I still need to read)
1. Print by: Evie Bookish
2.Mystery Mini (Jasmine) by Funko
3. Handmade Bracelet from Rich Love Shoppe
4. Magnetic Bookmarks by Craftedvan
Overall, I am very happy with all of the items I received in my crate this month. I will have to say that the Jasmine Funko and the magnetic bookmarks are definitely by favorite items though. I absolutely adore magnetic bookmarks and use them all the time.
