Hello everyone! I hope that you are all having a good day so far. I’ve had so many ideas for posts lately, but I haven’t been able to find the time to sit down and write one until now.
So, I don’t know about you guys, but I’m one of those people who drools over and secretly desires Owlcrate boxes. For those of you who don’t know, Owlcrate is a monthly YA subscription box that delivers a new YA book to you each month, along with many other bookish goodies. I learned about it about six months ago when I joined Bookstagram, and I have wanted one ever since.
I don’t usually splurge on myself, but when I saw that while the July box was sold out (that’s how popular these are!) I decided to check out their leftover stock from previous months. And, of course when I discovered that June’s “Royalty” themed box was still available, I took the plunge.
I was also curious to see how long shipping would take to Canada, and I was pleasantly surprised. I placed the order on July 12th and I received the box yesterday (July 20th).
I haven’t received any snail mail, besides bills, in a long time, and I have to admit, that I was giddy with anticipation. Now of course, I had seen other unboxings on Bookstagram, so I had a general idea of what was in the box. That didn’t make me enjoy myself any less though.
In the box was
- My Lady Jane by Cynthia hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows (with an adorable paper crown, I feel compelled to add.)
- Three very cute magnetic bookmarks by Craftedvan
- A lovely bracelet made by Rich Love Shoppe and inspired by The Lunar Chronicles
- A mystery mini Disney Funko (I got Elsa)
- A beautiful postcard print by Evie Bookish, with a quote from Red Queen
- A $10 coupon, which can be used towards a bookmark made by Olena at My Bookmark-Shop
I was very happy with all of my bookish loot, and I think that it definitely a worthwhile purchase.
The only thing I will mention, especially to my fellow Canadians, and I’m sure for people in other countries as well, is that the exchange rate did, of course, increase the price quite a bit. The box, and shipping to Canada came to approximately $69.
While I may not be able to afford to treat myself to one every month, I will whenever I can because I felt like a kid on Christmas morning when I was opening it. Haha.
Anyway, that’s all for now. I hope that this post was helpful, especially if you’re considering trying Owlcrate out.
Does anyone subscribe to Owlcrate? What other subscription boxes do you guys like?
I’ll end the post with one more photo of the bracelet, because I think it was my favourite item in the box. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by,
