OwlCrate January Review

Hello, all!

The first OwlCrate theme for the year was "Vengeance will be Mine", so let's get right to it.

First up was this little storage pocket mirror designed by OwlCrate based off Nevernight. I always love a pocket mirror, and the fact that this has three little cubbies inside will make it super convenient to take on trips to put medicine in or other small bits.

I'll never pass up a candle! This one is by A Court of Candles and was inspired by Children of Blood and Bone. It says they put different versions in the boxes and I got Lighter, which is very orange-y, but I don't actually mind it too much.

Much like candles, I will never say no to socks. We had gotten a pair of Six of Crows ones in a past box, so I'm pumped to get a pair dedicated to the next book in that duology.

Then we had this pin banner based on The Hobbit designed by In the Reads. I'm actually not a huge fan of The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings, so while I think the design is cool, I'll probably pass this along to someone else.

Finally, my favorite item! This month we got the next Harry Potter mug from Cara Kozik. I absolutely love all the other mugs she's done, and this one based on Order of the Phoenix is no exception! The detail! The artwork! Everything is so amazing.

The book this month was Scavenge the Stars by Tara Sim. This is basically a gender-swapped re-telling of The Count of Monte Cristo. It follows Amaya, who has been held captive on a debtor ship for years, and one day she decides to rescue a stranger from drowning. In return, this stranger offers her a chance to start over, riches beyond her wildest dreams, and the chance to seek revenge on the man who wronged her family and ruined her life. The deeper Amaya dives into this new life, the more complicated her situation becomes. Especially when she meets the son of the man she's plotting to take down.

What do you think of this month's box? Lemme know!
