Since fully diving into bookstagram, I have recently subscribed to a few book subscription boxes. I had tried other types of subscription boxes in the past (mostly for makeup and hair products) but, I usually found that out of the items included, I only ended up using 1 maybe 2 out of 5-7. I wanted to see if that would be true of bookish boxes.
This was my first OwlCrate box. Right off the bat, I love that there are no perishable goods in here. Nothing that will expire or go bad, nothing that can’t be kept out or has a specific temperature setting.
I also really liked the ratio of collectible to practical items.
- Six of Crows socks
- Pop socket
- Darkling inspired scarf
- Pin holder
- Finale excerpt
- Wicked Saints cloth map
- Wicked Saints pin
- Special cover signed edition of Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
It’s about 50/50 which is perfect. I have received other boxes with a much higher ratio of “practical” items but they are items I wouldn’t use. I can see myself using all of the practical items in this box.
Shoutout to the lefties reading this post: the notebook has a top spiral. I love that. Anyone can use it. As a fellow leftie, I’m especially pleased with this notebook.
Overall, I loved this box. I thought it was the best one I’ve received yet.
