Hello all! In case you don’t know, OwlCrate is a monthly bookish subscription box featuring a ya fantasy/fantasy adjacent book and items around a theme. I have been receiving these monthly boxes for nearly three years now and I love them!
When I received my May box I expected it to be good but I think it could just my favorite bookish box I’ve ever had the pleasure of opening. Want to see what got me excited? Check out my unboxing video!
Every month I get excited when I see my OwlCrate box waiting for me in the mailbox. Sometimes I know what the book will be, sometimes I don’t, but I’m always anxious to open it and see what is waiting for me inside. So far in 2021 we have received a stunning copy of Lore by Alexandra Bracken and The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna as well as some fun and useful bookish themed items. When my March box arrived, I dove right in.
Here we are, once again, at the end of a month in 2020 where you don’t know where the time went or how you got here. Hi, how are you? Are you doing alright? Are we all in a cycle of existential dread or is it just me? Sigh. Either way, I actually read books in November. Hooray! After spending a large chunk of the year in a reading slump I am surprised now when I actually manage to get some reading done.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. You don’t have to do all ten. Instead you can do three, five, fifteen, whatever you want. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.
