The first thing I see in this box is the spoiler card. This is probably one of my favourites that OwlCrate was ever came out with. I love how the girl is having tea and reading a book named “Little Witches”. I love the aesthetic of this card. I am not going to be looking at the back of this card because I don’t want to spoil myself. 

The next item I see in this box is a pair of book nerd socks. These socks were designed by Out of Print and Underlined. I love socks especially bookish ones. These are so cute.

Another item in this box is a choco mint truffle flavoured tea from The Tea Spot. I am not a tea drinker, however my best friend is so I will absolutely be gifting this to her.  I love the illustrations on this label. 

IMG_2363

Next is a tea strainer. Team OwlCrate created this silicone heart shaped strainer and Michelle Grey designed it. 

A canvas clutch purse is up next in this box. This was designed and created exclusively from Bookworm Boutique.  It reads on the back “books are a uniquely portable magic”. This pouch is gorgeous.

The final item is this month’s box is the pin that they always have that corresponds with the spoiler card. 

In this month’s box we get the honour of hitting two hardcover exclusive cover signed books. 

The first book is a Pride and Prejudice retelling called Pride by Ibi Zoboi. This is about a girl named Zuri who loves where she is from. However, lately she is feeling the the ramifications of renovating the houses on her neighbourhood. When a wealthy family moves next door, Zuri wants nothing to do with their two sons. Soon after Zuri’s older sister starts falling in love with one of them and initial judgments begin to shift. This is an OwlCrate exclusive cover. On the original cover the Title Pride is in blue. It is also signed, comes with a letter from the author and a bookmark. I love the naked spine and the endpapers. 

The next book is a fantasy novel called Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kawagawa. At the end of the millennium, whoever holds the scroll will be granted one wish from the great Kami Dragon. When a demon destroys a shapeshifter named Yumeko’s home as well has everyone she knows.
