March OwlCrate Review

Hello, all!

The theme for March was "Let's Rewrite History", so let's get right into it.

First up was the next enamel pin in the Treasured Tomes collection. This one is based off Once Upon a Broken Heart series, and I'm in love with the design.

Then we had my favorite item: library card socks! I'm a sucker for a cute pair of socks, and I love anything having to do with the library (obviously), so these were perfect.

I love the look and aesthetic of these glass tumblers, but I wish this one was for a fandom I liked. It's inspired by The Infernal Devices, which is a series I've never read and don't really have a desire to, so I'm hoping OwlCrate will do more of these in the future for other series.

This box was full of useful items, and we love to see it! I have a few other book sleeves and I'm always down to add one more to the collection. This is double-sided and features quotes from Kingdom of the Wicked and Deathless.

The last item was this eternal pencil inspired by Babel. I'm so intrigued by this one. I've never heard of an eternal pencil before, but it apparently never needs to be sharpened and doesn't run out, so I can't wait to try it.

March's book was Midnight Strikes by Zeba Shahnaz. This follows seventeen-year-old Anaïs, a provincial girl, who must work with a roguish prince to stop an attack on the royal family and escape a nightmarish curse that forces them to relive the same night again and again.

Admittedly, I don't love time-loop stories, but I do love this edition. I love a naked hardcover, and the gilded edges and foiled end pages are so pretty. What do you think of this box? Lemme know!
