This month’s OwlCrate was their first contemporary-inspired box since December, and it included items inspired by Since You’ve Been Gone and Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. I’m not that big on contemporary unless they have a geeky side to them but OwlCrate get their books so right usually I couldn’t say no to this box. The majority of items can be enjoyed regardless of whether you know the books too, which is always a plus!
This month’s book was a contemporary – From Twinkle with Love by Sandhya Menon. It was signed (again – starting to think every book might be from OwlCrate now which is awesome) and came with a cute little popcorn keyring too!
This OwlCrate exclusive mug, designed by Michelle Gray and OwlCrate, is perfect for Summer! ‘Book worm and proud’ – yep, perfect.
Designed by Stella Bookish Art, I really wish I had a holiday booked where I could take this too! It’s so cute though. And totally true as well…
This bookmark is double-sided and inspired by both Renée Adhieh’s books — The Wrath and the Dawn and Flame in the Mist. It’s an exclusive by Indigo Eleven.
What’s better than a bookmark? A woodmark! I absolutely love Ink & Wonder, so this Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe inspired wooden bookmark is a great addition.
Inspired by Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson, created by Riddle’s Tea Shoppe, I love fruit-flavoured tea so I’m excited to try this apple and peach flavour! (And in my new mug, of course).
Okay so this is just a little thing but I think it’s adorable! The pen writes so well. But maybe avoid taking it into work if you’re a 24 year old… or just take it and accept you’re a kid at heart.
This was such a cute box, I love how they’ve included items which are just for book-lovers in general and I’m excited to try out another contemporary too!
Next Month – Strange and Unusual 🔮
From OwlCrate themselves:
‘There’s something slightly spooky coming to your mailbox next month! Our July box is inspired by the whimsical, the bizarre and the peculiar!
Our book pick is a re-imagining of a beloved classic novel, mixed with the supernatural fun of Ghostbusters! We absolutely adored its Victorian Gothic setting, lovable characters, and glimpse into the world of the occult.
The book will be an exclusive edition with a special cover, and yes it will be SIGNED as well!
You can expect this box to be filled with quirky goodies inspired by Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, The Raven Boys, Harry Potter, Stranger Things and more! Many of the items are things we’ve never included before.‘
Okay okay so I’m 100% excited for this box, I love Stranger Things and I’m especially excited to see what’s included for it. Now… I just have to wait. I can do that, right?
