Owl Crate is a young adult book subscription box where every month you receive one new hardcover book and an assortment of bookish goodies connected to the monthly theme. Some of these items are very practical and others are better suited as decor or for a pin/builtin board. June’s theme was Libraries of Wonder.
This time there where fewer bookish goodies but they were a higher quality and I assume more expensive for this month which I prefer. I would rather get fewer high quality practical items than more items that are cheap and I don’t know what to do with them. The bookish items included a gel pen shaped like a key, a coaster set with quotes about libraries on them, a tote bag inspired by Strange the Dreamer, some coffee from Book Beau Brew inspired by Bell’s Library, and a set of metal bookends inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia. Over the months that I’ve received Owl Crate most of the boxes get better each month with better items.
Each monthly box includes a new hard back book that has an exclusive cover, an author letter, and the book is signed by the author. Also the enamel pin included with each box is inspired by the book. This months book is Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson. Sorcery of Thorns follows Elisabeth who works at a library that contains magical and dangerous grimoires where she attempts to complete her apprenticeship. When she is thrust into a plan to sabotage the library she must team up with a sorcerer and his demonic servant on a journey to save the library while questioning everything she knows. This is Margaret Rogerson’s second book and it sound very interesting.
July’s theme is Tournaments and Trials.
