This was another fun box to get from the OwlCrate team! I have to just dive in and talk about the second book they included this month, an already published comic book. OwlCrate worked with OniPress and added a special paperback edition of the first volume of Witchy. I had read this comic early in 2019 and am so happy to finally have my own copy, plus the new cover looks great!
I also enjoyed getting the wooden magnet with a quote from the Bone Season on it. Although, I still haven’t read it yet. It’s on my list for 2020. Then there is the Heart of Iron pot holders, which both have quotes from the series on them. I’ve been needing new pot holders to use for making my tea everyday. I love how OwlCrate is making their items more useful for everyday use! Next, is a pack of metal straws with a cleaner. The pouch they came in also has An Ember in the Ashes quote on it. Sadly, I can’t use these- but my friend can!The last three items were the inspiring sticker quotes, following these harsh and insane times. Perfect for a rebellion.
The enamel pin this month is giving me witchy vibes, with its crystal shape and sparkle. Now, for the book this month- A special edition hardback copy of Incendiary by Zoraida Cordova. This edition has a brand new cover, signed page and an author letter. This looks like a great read and I can’t wait to jump in it.
Overall, I thought this box was just an okay box, with the comic Witchy being my favorite part. Though, I am looking forward yo June’s box!
Rating of box: 3 out 5 stars.
