Review: July 2016 OwlCrate


I’m never sure when to post these, as I hate being spoiler-ific, but at the same time…it needs to be put up in time for people to decide if they want to sign up for the next box! In my opinion, anyway. Whenever I’m looking at subscription boxes I want to see the month prior. Anywho – here we go!

July’s OwlCrate theme was Good vs. Evil, and they sent out two versions of the box! Same book, different goodies. I received the Evil box!

Opening it up…

This month’s book was This Savage Song, by Victoria Schwab. I’m excited because I have wanted to read something by her ever since The Near Witch came out but sadly have never gotten around to it! Now I have no excuse, because her latest is in my hot little hands. It’s getting rave reviews, too. Really need to bump it closer to the top of my TBR list.

Also included were the amazing little coloring book there on the right, full of black and whites of a mix of popular and up-and-coming YA title covers. Awesome idea. Loved it.

Then there was a TOTALLY AMAZING bookmark fromΒ Jane’s Tiny ThingsΒ (I have a magnetic bookmark obsession right now and might have already ordered more from her shop…).

Next there was an awesome wooden necklace from Vector Engraving – mine was the Death Star, but the Good box had a Millennium Falcon. πŸ˜€ Hehe. Also, a FULL SIZE Harry Potter FUNKO POP!! I love Funkos. I would like to collect them but don’t have a really good place for them right now and am not a huge fan of them on my bookshelves, despite the adorable setups of them that I see on OTHER people’s book shelves. So I have refrained…mostly. I think I have 5 now. And of course since this is my 2nd Harry Potter Funko I reeeeeeally need the others in that lineup. Sigh. There’s also a “Am I Not Merciful” sticker that I think references Iluminae, but since I haven’t read it the significance is somewhat lost on me. *embarrassed face*

August’s theme is Fast Times at YA High! “This box will contain a hilarious love story, as well as items inspired by our favorite high school sweethearts, and our favorite school of all time…HOGWARTS!” As of right now there are still spots available. For various reasons I’ve elected to skip this box, but I’m eagerly waiting to see what September’s theme will be and will be back then with a review. πŸ™‚

I review this box based on my own paying subscription.

  1. So cute πŸ™‚ I love the good Vs. Evil versions. I think it’s even cooler that you got the evil one lol. Schwab is definitely amazing. I’ve read A darker shade of magic and I’m now reading A gathering of shadows. You will not be disappointed with her writing!

    • Isn’t it cute? The company also makes earrings, mostly of fandom stuff but there is a pair of absolutely freaking adorable hedgehogs that I think must come live with me. I love coloring books too…I just never seem to find time to color them! Haha. If only we didn’t need sleep…

      • Haha I know. I have about five barely-started adult coloring books. I always want to buy more even though I never have time. And hedgehog earrings do sound adorable. I hope you get a pair of them. πŸ™‚
