June OwlCrate Review

Hello, all!

The theme for this month was "Of Romance and Rivalry." Let's get into it!

First up, we had this Dark Rise inspired magnet. I've never read that book, but I like the design of this.

Then we had this wooden comb inspired by These Violent Delights. I do like the look of this, but I think the comb is a little too big for the pouch because it's hard to get it in/out, so that's a tad annoying.

I know I've mentioned before how cute I find their Literary Luggage pins, but this one inspired by Serpent & Dove has tiny baked goods in the windows and it's adorable. I mean, tiny loaves of bread? Tiny pretzels? I love it.

My  favorite item in the box was this Crescent City inspired tote bag. I do find their tote bags to be too long (literally this one hangs around my mid-thigh), but I love the design and have actually already put this to use when I just went into NYC.

You all know how much I love the Kingdom of the Wicked series, so this wooden print is *chefs kiss*.

They included the next installment of their Classics Collection, and I'm in love with this Pride & Prejudice edition. This is one of my favorite classics, and I think this edition is so pretty. It's quite busy, but I like it. It also has one of my favorite quotes on the back. The best part? It's super floppy and I love a floppy paperback.

The main book for the month was Together We Burn by Isabel Ibañez. Eighteen-year-old Zarela Zalvidar is a talented flamenco dancer and daughter of the most famous Dragonador in Hispalia. People come from all over to watch her father fight in their famous arena. But disaster strikes during their five hundredth anniversary show, and Zarela’s father is horribly injured. To keep her family's arena safe from greedy hands, she must take her father’s place as the next Dragonador. When the infuriatingly handsome dragon hunter, Arturo Díaz de Montserrat, withholds his help, she refuses to take no for an answer. But with someone out there set on destroying the Zalvidar family, Zarela will have to do whatever it takes in order to prevent the Dragon Guild from taking away her birthright.

I haven't heard of this before, but I love stories with dragons, so I'm interested to see how it'll play out. Let me know what you thought of this months box!
