I am really enjoying the Owlcrate boxes. They are well worth their money, and are a nice surprise. It is almost like a reward for making it through another month. I have also read a lot of good books that I would not have otherwise. You can find out more about Owlcrate here.
My most used item, so far, has been this book cover. It reads "Books are a uniquely portable magic." I wasn't sure at first. Yet, I thought I would put it on the book I carry around in my purse. It is great. I do not have to worry about dinging up the book from just carrying it around. I have also put some papers, that I need to not be damage, with the book. Ironically, it was not large enough for one of the two books that were included. So, it will not work for everything. However, it is a nice edition. Before I signed up to Owlcrate there was another book cover, so hopefully I will have a small collection over time.
As advertised, there were two books in the box this month. The first is a Pride and Prejudice retelling, called Pride. I have not heard about this book, but I am excited to read it. It seems like a very good retelling, and a much different setting. It is also set in the neighborhood that the author grew up in, which should give it a more richer setting. Also included is Shadow of the Fox. I have had this on my radar to pick up. I really know nothing about it, I have just seen it gaining popularity. Besides the cover looks awesome. I was very excited to see this inside the box. Both books are high on my TBR - after I finish bing reading Goodreads finalists.
At the end of every box there is a mini magazine that tells more about the authors and the merchants. There is also a card showing next month's theme. Owlcrate's themes are pretty amazing. How can I not be excited by Rise from the Ashes?
I hope you enjoy this unboxing. What was your favorite item? If you have Owlcrate, what is your favorite part of receiving your box? If you do not, the check them out.
