May Subscription Box: OwlCrate

In May, I did receive two book subscription boxes. I got my box from OwlCrate, as always, because they are the best! I also got a box from Once Upon a Bookclub! Since I haven’t read the entire book yet, and you have to open the gifts in that particular box on specified pages of the book, I am going to be posting a separate blog on it. It will probably go up sometime next month.

So, today will be dedicated solely to the May OwlCrate box! Let’s get to the unboxing!!

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert ~ 355 pages ~ published 1/30/18 by Flatiron Books


Goodreads Summary:

Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels.

April Subscription Boxes: OwlCrate and LitJoy Crate

Each month, I love to receive book subscription boxes! It is such a great way to discover new books, as well as get great bookish items to fill your home with. I am always up for a precious, adorable, perfect little bookish item 😉

This month, I decided to do OwlCrate (which I do every month, because it is awesome!!), and LitJoy Crate! I absolutely loved the LitJoy crate from last month (check out last month’s unboxing post here), so I bit the bullet and got LitJoy Crate again for the month of April. Let’s get to the unboxings!!

March Subscription Boxes: OwlCrate and LitJoy Crate

Over the past year or so, I have discovered the absolute joy that is book subscription boxes. I have been an avid OwlCrate fan for a while now, and I decided to try out a lot of different book subscription services this year, and to review each of them. You can check out my post on last month’s OwlCrate here. During the month of March, I decided to add the LitJoy Crate, in addition to my usual OwlCrate. I loved them both, and figured that I would do one giant unboxing post for them both!

Owl Crate Unboxing: February 2018 – Hidden Worlds

IMG_1190I discovered the magical world of book subscription boxes last year, and I have not looked back! This is such an amazing way to discover new books, as well as receive some really great bookish swag!

I have decided that I am going to start trying out a different book box every month or so in order to find which one is my favorite! There are so many of them out there! OwlCrate has been my longest running book box subscription, so it seemed fitting to post my first ‘unboxing’ with their February box!
