OwlCrate’s May box had a fantastic assortment of items inspired by The Illuminae Files, Rule of Wolves, Scythe, The Fifth Season, and The Gilded Wolves.
Whereas the previous month’s box wasn’t quite one for me, this was 100% a box I could love!
Check out all the items below.
The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He was May’s book… I actually put a review up for this earlier in the month so you can read that here.
This copy has an exclusive cover (colour change) and exclusive foil on the hardcover too. It’s also signed and comes with an author letter.
The exclusive pin was designed by Icey Designs, featuring the words ‘logic ends where love begins’, it’s a super-cute pin tbh and I really like it!
Two sisters. An unputdownable story.
Cee woke up on the shores of an abandoned island three years ago with no idea how she got there. Now eighteen, she lives in a shack with an ageing android, and a single memory: she has a sister, and she has to escape to find her.
From the safety of the eco-city floating above Earth, now decimated by natural disasters, sixteen-year-old Kasey mourns Cee whom she’s sure is dead. She too wants to escape: the eco-city is meant to be a sanctuary for people who want to save the planet, but its inhabitants are willing to do anything for refuge, even lie. Is Kasey ready to use technology to help Earth, even though it failed her sister?
Cee and Kasey think that what they know about each other and their world is true. Both are wrong. If you loved We Were Liars or Black Mirror, you’ll love The Ones We’re Meant to Find, a clever, inspirational scifi thriller with a dash of Studio Ghibli.
I know this says it’s a scarf but… I have no idea how I’d wear it as one. It’s from Out of Print and an officially licensed Rule of Wolves item, but I think it’ll end up on a wall instead because it’s so beautiful!
‘May we meet again on distant shores’… this bag has already become my everyday bag and I love it. Although I like when tote bags are included I don’t really like how they never have zips but this one does! It’s inspired by Obsidio and hand-lettered by Studio Kyra Calligraphy.
I still haven’t read The Gilded Wolves, but this sticker from Lion in the Trees is super cool! I love wolves so yep, winner. Gorgeous design!
Metal Tassel Bookmark
Inspired by Scythe and The Fifth Season and designed by Pixel & Ink Creative, unfortunately my metal bookmark arrived a little worse for wear – the coloured foil should have stayed on. The team at OwlCrate is awesome though and are sending me a replacement! So, the actual designs are pretty cool. I’m a mega fan of metalmarks due to how they look tbh so pretty happy one was included!
Collectible Book Tin
I love this collectible series! I haven’t read ADSOM yet (I have the last two books on the way to me this month though!) but it’s one I’m super excited for as I’m pretty sure I’ll love it.
Well, as mentioned I loved this box! I’m definitely a fan of the collectible tins and *eventually* when I have my own place they’ll look awesome all together on a shelf! The bag is my new everyday bag, so definitely can’t complain at that! I wish the scarf was a little easier to wear but tbh I’m planning on just having it up on a wall because it’s so beautiful.
It’s a shame that the metalmark was damaged but the OwlCrate team is great at sorting out replacements – mine’s already on the way to me! And if I had loved the book then I would adore this edition. I’m obsessed with the cover design but I can’t justify keeping the copy for the cover when I already have too many books as it is…
Still, definitely my kind of box!

Strange the Dreamer, Fable and Throne of Glass items, literally all I needed to be excited for this box!
