Hello everyone! I wanted to go back a bit to October, when I received a new Owlcrate! It’s been a long time since I was able to take advantage of my subscription, and I was so happy that I did.
If you’ve never ordered an Owlcrate box, they do a referral program. If you’re interested in checking them out, I would absolutely love if you used my referral link.* Obviously you can still order a box without using a referral code, but it would be a nice thing for me. Please see the end of my post for more details!
October’s theme was Lost in the Bookstore, which, let’s be honest, is PERFECT for me (and any other bookworms out there). And let me tell you, Owlcrate did not disappoint.
Owlcrate includes a monthly pin and print and they are always so beautiful. Lovely Illustration (Jordan Kincaid: website, instagram) created a perfect one that was so whimsical! It reminded me a lot of Harry Potter and The Sword in the Stone.
The special thing about October’s box was that TWO books were included in the box, which I feel doesn’t happen very often. At least that’s what I think! Not only were there two books included, but there were two full length novels included. There was a previous Owlcrate that had two books, but one of them was shorter than the other.
Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa, is the first in a new series. Obviously I love Japan since I lived there for five years, so I was really excited to see this in here! The main character is half human, half yokai––which is something I want to write about too!––so I’m super excited to read her story. It sounds like a great fantasy novel!
The other pick this month was Pride by Ibi Zoboi. This is another book I was looking forward to reading because it’s a Pride and Prejudice retelling. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite Austen, so I’m really looking forward to seeing how Zoboi uses the original source material and creates her own story too.
Both books are Owlcrate exclusive editions! I love that they do this. It makes the book feel even more special. We lucked out that both books were also signed this month! Check out their shop for signed and exclusive editions. Continue reading
