I can not get over this box! It feels like a while since I’ve loved an OwlCrate box as much as I love this one! It has so many things I loved, needed and can use all the time! And their edition of the book is gorgeous!
I’m just going to start off with this book, so so pretty. The OwlCrate team changed up the cover to be dark and light blue, instead of light blue and black. They also did a special signed page (as they always do now), and silver glittery (gilded is the word) edges (and an author letter too! But, they always have that too!). This book looks so good and sounds like a good read too! Hopefully I’ll be able to get to it soon!
I’m mostly freaking out about the mini Bluetooth speaker. I have been trying in vain to use an old one I’ve had- but nothing is working as it should. Now, I have this super cute one and its very load and clear! I can’t wait to try it out with these new playlists for book boxes.
The Phantom of the Opera poster was also amazing! I was just talking about it a few days ago and now I’ve got a poster of my very own! OwlCrate are you guys reading my mind? Spooky. The thick wood art print inspired by V.E. Schwab’s This Savage Song series is so cool and unlike anything OwlCrate has done before.
The Ex Libris stickers for our books was also a sweet touch. Reminding me of my Letterpress printing days (I made a book of Ex Libris plates). But, I will not be putting these in my books, I don’t even stick signed book plates in my books either! I know I’m weird, I just tuck them into the books.
I do have to say the Bella lip scrub was my least favorite item of the box. Just because as soon as I unwrapped it it to smell it, it and everything got all oily (I threw it out after I did photos, because I could not get it un-oily. But the OwlCrate merch socks were a super cute addition!
Rating of box: 4.9 out of 5 stars.
