Well it’s THAT time of the month again… the time when I stumble home from work to find a treat on my doorstep:
OWLCRATE IS HERE!
October’s Theme: Find Me in the Forest
I was pumped for the theme because I love woodsy rustic aesthetics and I had a really good feeling what the book would be (I was right). I was excited to hear that there would be a candle and a mug… so without further ado…
This coaster Kristin Askland coaster is easily my favorite item! I love the art style, foxes are my favorite animal and it’s a nice Thoreau quote.
An In the Wick of Time candle based on The Raven Cycle series… a series I DNFed hardcore. But it smells pretty.
Loose leaf tea from Riddles Tea Shoppe
The much buzzed about Harry Potter mug… I was slightly disappointed in it. It’s not really my taste and I actually prefer the design of the box… oh well, I’ll still use it.
A Princess Mononoke art print by Audra Auclair.
Adorable magnetic bookmark from Craftedvan. I love them.
Finally, THE BOOK! Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore. I knew this would be the book, and I’m so excited!
Here’s the whole thing. It’s a nice box with some really great things in it. I was a little underwhelmed by the mug and candle but I love everything else.
I did skip November’s box because I think I know the book and none of the fandoms mentioned appeal to me.
Started but will probably DNF it:
I’ve given it 75 pages and it’s just doing nothing for me… I’m taking a break from it for now.
I love the cover, I love the premise… I’m giving it a shot. I’m also watching Addams Family Values, so we’ll see how much reading actually gets done tonight.
