It's that time of month again! I can finally show off my beautiful Owlcrate goodies without spoiling it for other subscribers <3 Without further ado, the Shadows & Secrets box!
I got another sticker to add to the collection on my laptop! Yay! The sticker is based off The Young Elites, which I hadn't yet heard of, but this actually got me pretty interested. The pencil set (sorry about the glare) are Harry-Potter inspired, with the green one stating "Property of the Half-Blood Prince". To the right is a bag of Bones Coffee Company's Deadly Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt. I've only made a single cup of it since I've gotten it, mixed with a bit of milk and vanilla syrup, but it was delicious. Granted, I'm also a sucker for both dark chocolate and chocolate with sea salt! And then there's the true reason I get Owlcrate...
Okay, but I have to admit that this Crooked Kingdom themed pillowcase is pretty cool. I love it, and I'm sure my previously naked pillow agrees with me.
I suppose it's this signed copy of Ace of Shades that's supposed to be the centerpiece of this Owlcrate box. And yet somehow that fancy little pillowcase still snuck into the picture? That sneaky thing...
Okay so, Ace of Shades is another Owlcrate book that I hadn't previously heard of, though I did notice a lot of hype right around when it was released. It does sound quite promising, however, with a fantasy Las Vegas-style setting and a similar character motivation as The Hazel Wood - a girl searching after her mother who's gone missing, sending her to places that she should never be.
It's actually landed a spot on this month's TBR list, although I'll be explaining why here in a few days!
And of course, as I'd avoided mentioning earlier, there's cool swag based off the book. Four Ace of Shades postcards, and one even includes a map! I've yet to figure out if I want to keep them as decoration, or send them out :(
Keep on reading,
It's the first! Which means I can finally show off my Owlcrate goodies without spoiling it for other subscribers!
The theme for March was Across the Galaxy, so I knew I had sci-fi in store. While not my favorite genre, it's pretty up there, and I was excited to see what Owlcrate had chosen.
So unlike February, when I ended up buying a copy of the same book Owlcrate had chosen, I hadn't actually heard of Heart of Iron before opening up my subscription box. However, I usually have my eye on all the upcoming fantasy novels, and not much more, so that doesn't really come as a surprise. To be honest, I much prefer it when the book is a complete surprise.
This is (almost) everything that came in the March Owlcrate! (There was also a cute galaxy scarf, but I forgot to take a picture of it before I gifted it away...) Groot was from a little Guardians of the Galaxy grab bag, and probably the cutest thing I got! Although I might be biased since I think baby Groot is a precious little bean. He's sitting on a candle based off of the Illuminae series - there were two possible variations that came in the box, and I received the one based off the second book. To the left is a cute little coffee mug, based on Cinder, and behind them is a promotion from Nerdy Post, with art from Red Rising on the other side. There was also a Heart of Iron poster with the four main characters on it, and a cute galaxy bookmark with a Star Wars quote on it (which my husband proceeded to immediately steal, especially since he found it appropriate to use while reading the Star Wars novels).
And, like always, the book wasn't just a new copy. The cover is slightly altered (though I believe on this copy, it's just the color of the title) and it's signed!
Super excited about this box! Heart of Iron will probably be a bit low on my TBR list, from a mix of having so much on the list already and being in a very fantasy mood recently! But I can't wait to read it and let you guys know what I think!
Keep on reading,
Thinking about trying Owlcrate out? Check it out! It's definitely worth the cost, and they've been including more in the boxes every month!
Interested in Hearts of Iron? Get it here!
Nerdy Post, which was advertised on my Red Rising print, is also a pretty neat little subscription box. It's focuses more on artwork, as the contents are generally art prints and bookmarks, with a few other optional items. It's not an expensive subscription box, either, with the cheapest at $9.99. If you're interested, message me for a discount code!
