OwlCrate, June 2017

OwlCrate is a monthy subscription box where you get sent a new YA book and all sorts of cool merch and goodies, all pertaining to a certain theme.

This month's theme was MAKE IT OUT ALIVE! Here's all the stuff I got in my box this month. If you want to sign up for OwlCrate, their website is here.

This month's box included...

  • The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson. Eden is a girl living in a post-revolution world, where things are now controlled by The Wolfpack. The Wolfpack is responsible for the deaths of all of Eden's loved ones, and resources are running out. Luckily, Eden has reached one of the few safe places left. But before she can get too comfortable, one of her new friends goes missing, and Eden realizes that the so-called "safe place" isn't safe after all. This isn't normally the sort of thing I'd reach for -- I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with YA dystopian. But I'm looking forward to giving this one a go! There is also a letter from the author included.
  • New World Rising by Jennifer Wilson. That's right, this box has not one, but two books this month! This is the first in a new series, which focuses on a girl named Phoenix who lives in a city run by the Tribes. The Tribes' motto is simple -- join or die. Phoenix, however, doesn't intend to do either. I'm a little apprehensive towards this one -- frankly, it seems kind of tropey, and not in a good way. But I'm definitely going to give it a shot.
  • A sticker sheet based off of The Sandcastle Empire. (Whether or not I use the stickers will depend, I suppose, on how I like the book.)
  • A patch inspired by the classic YA dystopia, The Giver. I love The Giver, but I'm not too hot on clothing patches. Ah, well -- someone will want it.
  • A bath bomb inspired by the Divergent series. I never read Divergent -- I know the premise, it just doesn't sound like my thing. However, I've always wanted to try a bath bomb. Unfortunately, I don't have a bath -- I have a shower. I'll have to use this the next time I visit my dad.
  • A sleep mask with a zombie face on it. Who doesn't love zombies? I'm on board.
  • A bookmark inspired by the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. I could always use another bookmark.
There's also a card with a preview for next month's theme -- WANDERLUST. Can't wait!
