OwlCrate: Dystopian Style

My 1st OwlCrate has arrived! Dropped on my front porch like all good Owl Post should be.

In the OwlCrate:

  • A WICKED decal for those Maze Runner fans created by Shailey Ann Designs
  • Mockingjay bracelet from the Geeky Cauldron
  • 1984 notebook from Manuscript
  • A Katniss minimalist magnet from Half Blood Prints 
  • Shatter Me inspired coaster from Evie Books
  • FLAWED the debut novel from Cecelia Ahern, author of PS I Love You

Who doesn’t love a good dystopian novel!? From George Orwell to Suzanne Collins, dystopian societies have been holding readers interests for a very long time. Obviously I was pumped when I heard April’s OwlCrate was Dystopian themed so I took the dive and subscribed for my first box ever.

I was a little disappointed?

Maybe it’s because two of the items were Hunger Games? I’ve been collecting HG memorabilia for YEARS so I was hoping the box would introduce me to some new favourites. In saying that, the minimalist magnets from Half Blood Prints are amazing and i’ve been wanting some artwork from this store forever! And I still love Hunger Games so the Mockingjay bracelet by Geeky Cauldron (one of my fave stores btw, Fandom of the Month anyone?!) is equally adorable.

AND Evie Books! What can I say? I drool over her Instagram daily. So excited to finally have a piece from her store.

The thing I was most excited about was the book selection. I love being introduced to new books and a debut novel from Cecelia Ahern sounds like absolute perfection. Unfortunately, I think the marketing team could have stepped up their game for the book blurb…Cecelia Ahern did a better job describing her book in the special OwlCrate letter. Regardless, I’m excited to read it! I’ve loved the majority of her adult novels so I can’t wait to see what she brings to a YA Dystopian novel. Should I prepare for tears like usual?

Overall I was happy with my first OwlCrate experience, it just wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be. I am SO SO SO excited for Steampunk next month though. I haven’t really delved into Steampunk in any facet but video games so I can’t wait to see all the new surprises waiting for me in that box!

I’m an OwlCrate addict.

Until next time,
