Who’s feeling royal?
The June 2016 Owlcrate has finally arrived (via Owl Post of course 🙂 ).
If you haven’t caught on quite yet, this month’s theme is ROYALTY! And since I love books surrounding kingdoms, I am very excited to see what’s inside!
If you have no clue what an Owlcrate box is, don’t fret!
This is a monthly subscription box featuring a recently released young adult novel. But what makes this one so awesome is that it surrounds a unique theme for each month with 3-5 bookish goodies to that connect to that particular theme.
I really love Owlcrate! They haven’t disappointed me yet, and I’ve only had 1 book out of over a dozen boxes that I’ve purchased. (Disclaimer– I do purchase the box with my own money, so just like all of my posts, I wasn’t asked or paid to say any of these things. My opinion only 🙂 )
So without further delay, let the unboxing begin!
Of course, after carefully clawing the box open, you come across the info card that contains all the concealed secrets of your new treasures. Here’s some advice..
DON’T FLIP THIS CARD OVER unless you’re OK with spoiling yourself, and not allowing the wonderful people at Owlcrate to epically surprise you. But either way you choose, get ready..
After I set that aside, the first item was one that I was ECSATIC to hear would be included in this month’s box.. a Mystery Mini from the amazing Funko company. Every box contained a different Disney character for the royal theme. I didn’t even finish unboxing the rest before I annihilated the plastic wrapping and opened the box.
And I was not disappointed 🙂
I received the Gus from Cinderella. If you don’t recognize him, he’s the cute, chubby mouse that is later transformed into one of the white horses for the ball. SO CUTE! 🙂
The next item is in this cute, lil’ satchel.
Inside is a handmade cuff from the Rich Love Shoppe. If you love The Lunar Chronicles (Marissa Meyer) as much as I do, you’ll love this bracelet. This is probably my favorite pieces of jewelry from these boxes. I’ll definitely be wearing this for date night!
One of the bestselling books within the last year is featured in this artwork designed by Evie Bookish. You can’t think about queens without thinking of the Red Queen (Victoria Aveyard). “Words can lie. See beyond them.”
If you venture through the world of Bookstagram, you may have come across this small shop. My Bookmark is allowing an exclusive discount for Owlcrate subscribers. I’ve been wanting one of her bookmarks, so I’ll be visiting there soon!
This is another small company that you may have seen on Bookstagram: Craftedvan. These magnetic bookmarks are perfect to hold your place while you have to oversee your duties of the kingdom!
And finally, for the book of the month…
My Lady Jane by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, and Jodi Meadows!
” The comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey. In My Lady Jane, coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history—because sometimes history needs a little help.
At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren’t for Jane to worry about. Jane gets to be Queen of England.”
I’ve seen this float around the book community since it’s debut, and I’ve been dying to read it.
Along with the book comes a few exclusive author content: a paper crown and a personalized letter to us readers.
