OwlCrate Subscription Box Review | September 2017

owl crate review
OwlCrate is a monthly Young Adult book subscription. I paid for this subscription myself to do the review for you, our amazing followers. It’s $29.99 a month and includes a new release YA novel, bookish goodies and usually a signed bookplate and letter from the author.

This month we received a book beau book sleeve, these bags are padded and will provide plenty of protection for your beloved books. I adore the design it goes along with the magical creature theme and is also right up my ally with unicorns & mermaids. It was so nice to put my book inside and throw it in my handbag of nightmares and not have to worry about it getting ruined. 
A dragon coin purse by owlcrate. This item is a owlcrate exclusive, its a small canvas zippered coin purse with lil dragon and clouds on it I think it is adorable but, it smells awful like a really bad mildew filled basement I can barely stand it. I tried febreeze and airing it out but nothing has truly taken away the smell. I am going to contact owlcrate and see if they have gotten any other complaints about this.
Bath salts by The Soap Librarian in the scent “Son of Poseidon”. These smell really good and are multi-purpose I would use these for my kids if they were congested because they do have the eucalyptus in them and you can smell it. I would also use these for myself to take a nice calming bath to feel refreshed.

Here we have the signed book plate by the author Jodi Meadows. A constellation pin that is another owlcrate exclusive made by team owlcrate. A letter from the author to all owlcrate subscribers. Die- cut sticker of Hagrid & Buckbeak by Susan Draws which, I applied to my laptop as soon as my pictures were all taken. And my absolute FAVORITE item in this box is the gorgeous bookmark by Ink & Wonder this design was made exclusively for this box as well. The artwork on her work is amazing and I am obsessed.  These are made from very thin sustainable wood. I would recommend making sure that this is fully tucked between the pages to prevent it from bending and breaking. That would be a travesty.

This is a booklet with more info about the items in this months crate like pictures of both of the covers of this months book (pictured below). This pocket size guide to the dragons in the book is so cool. When you read the name of a particular dragon in the book you can use this to cross reference them which I thought was such a cool idea to get more into the whole story line.

This months book is Before She Ignites By Jodi Meadows. This book is fantasy fiction about a girl, Mira who is an advocate for dragons which are very real in her world and they are endangered. Mira does everything in her power to protect and help them from the many dangers that they encounter, All while she is putting herself into unforeseen danger as well.

Both covers for the book the only difference I see is the see is the color of the serpent. Which is still cool that owlcrate got its own cover.

Nicole’s Notes:

So by now I’ve gotten 4 different book subscriptions and I think that each one has its own attributes. Some offer a genre of your choosing while others have strictly hardcover books. Owlcrate has  a lot of great qualities like hardcover books, signed bookplates, and always has the BEST book related items in my opinion and the value is always there where others lack some months. I would say that while I prefer Horror or Mystery books I love owlcrate, it is my favorite book box by far and I have enjoyed the books. They get me into reading something that I would not have chosen for myself.  I love when any type of box gets me out of my comfort zone its my #1 reason for being a subscriber.  My advice is if your looking for a book box that provides a nice experience that goes with the theme that month then you should try Owlcrate. Click the link below to check them out. Thanks for reading my review I hope you enjoyed it!!

I want to have my own Owl Delivery
