So I finally caved and subscribed to Owl Crate last month when I found out that there September theme was Darkness, and there would be a Throne of Glass inspired item inside! I was so excited when it showed up on my doorstep today, and wanted to share what I found inside! (be warned, don’t continue if you don’t want spoilers for this months box)
This lovely picturesque letter summarizes what was in the box, but if you don’t feel like reading that fine print continue on for my picture-by-picture dissection.
Let’s start off with the pick for this month’s book, Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake! I am super excited for this book, which doesn’t come out for another four days (September 20). I actually had to cancel my Amazon pre-order because it came in this lovely box! With this book came super cool swag: a signed paper form Kendare Blake, a copy of a handwritten letter from the author with a map on the other side (I love me some maps), and a foldable fortune teller featuring themes from the book! And can we all just appreciate how beautiful this book is naked?
There were also two little samplers included: one with an excerpt from P.C. Cast’s new novel Moon Chosen, and one with the first chapter from an upcoming serial Remade writteb by a ton of cool authors.
Now onto the cool merch items! My personal favorite was the Celaena’s Cake candle from Melting Library! I absolutely love cake candles, and anything Throne of Glass, so the mixture was a wonderful surprise. There was also a beautiful bookmark with a Six of Crows quote on it, which will never leave my copy of the book so it doesn’t get ruined. I can’t wait to use the fizzy fortune teller bath bomb, which dissolves to give you a yes or no answer when you drop it in the tub (reminds me and the box curators of the Raven Cycle). And last but not least, the awesome Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children pouch (book not included).
I adored this month’s box, and I hope that I can scrape enough money together for next month’s. The theme for October is Once Upon a Time! If you like what you see here, you can click this link and sign up today: OwlCrate
