Owlcrate Unboxing – May 2020

Hooray! My Owlcrate arrived way earlier than expected this month. What a wonderful surprise! The box may be a little battered but it’s what is inside that counts!

Owlcrate is a monthly subscription service for fans of Young Adult novels. Each box is guaranteed to contain 3-5 carefully curated items which are all chosen to match a specific theme. In addition to this, the box also contains a brand new novel, which is usually autographed and with an exclusive cover. Each box costs about £38 to ship to the United Kingdom and, so far, they have proven to be great value for money.

Owlcrate guarantees that you will receive each box so long as your subscription remains active, and I would strongly recommend thinking very carefully before you cancel. As the crates sell out very quickly, it can be hard to get back on the list once you come off it!

Anyhow, the theme this month is “Rebels with a Cause”. Be warned – spoilers and photos of each item lie beyond this point…

Owlcrate Unboxing – April 2020

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all doing okay in isolation at the moment. Apologies that this unboxing is so late this month. Due to the current situation, Owlcrate has understandably had some delays in sending out their boxes. Yet, my April crate has finally arrived, which is the main thing!

For those of you who haven’t read any of my previous unboxings, here is what you need to know. Owlcrate is a monthly subscription service for fans of Young Adult novels. Each box costs around £38 to ship to the United Kingdom and is guaranteed to contain one newly released book, usually signed by the author and with an exclusive cover. In addition to this, the boxes contain 3-5 other items that are carefully curated to follow the monthly theme. This month, the theme was “Full Moon Magic”.

Oh, and a final word of warning. As Owlcrate is a subscription service, it guarantees you each box as long as your subscription remains active. While you can cancel at any time, you should bear in mind that the boxes often sell out very quickly and so it can be difficult to get back onto the mailing list once you come off (I made this mistake myself last September…).

Anyhow, I think that covers everything. Let’s take a look at what was inside the April crate. Please bear in mind that this post does contain pictures and massive spoilers for those of you who are still waiting for your crate to arrive…

Owlcrate Unboxing – March 2020

Hello everyone! I hope that you are all keeping well. It’s been a pretty crazy month but it’s time for another Owlcrate unboxing!

In case this is the first of my unboxings that you have had the pleasure of reading, let’s talk a little about what they are for. Owlcrate is a monthly mystery box for fans of Young Adult novels. Each box costs around £38 to ship the the United Kingdom and is guaranteed to contain 3-5 collectables, all selected around a different monthly theme. On top of this, the box is contains a newly released hardback, usually signed and with an exclusive cover.

Owlcrates tend to sell out incredibly quickly, though you are guaranteed to receive each box as long as you have an active subscription. This subscription can be cancelled at any time, though I would recommend only doing so if you are sure. I made the mistake of cancelling last year and it took me a couple of months to get it back again!

As you might be able to tell from the striking blue box, this month’s box was a bit of a special one as it’s Owlcrate’s 5th Anniversary! The theme this time around was ‘Music of the Night’ and scroll on to see what exciting things were contained with in.

Be warned – massive spoilers lie below for anyone who has not yet received their crate…

Hi everyone! It’s time for another look at Owlcrate! As I mentioned in last month’s unboxing, Owlcrate is a monthly subscription service for fans of Young Adult books.

Owlcrates sell out incredibly quickly, though they do have a waiting list and they guarantee that you will receive each box so long as your subscription remains active.

The February theme was ‘A Power Within’. Please read on to find out what I thought of this one, but do be warned that this post does contain photos and lots of spoilers if you are still waiting for your box to arrive…

Owlcrate Unboxing – January 2020

Hi Everyone! You might have noticed that I’ve gotten a bit hooked on Owlcrate over the last few months and so I thought that I would start to share my unboxings with you.

In case you haven’t see the adverts for this online, Owlcrate is a monthly subscription box for fans of Young Adult books. These boxes aren’t the cheapest to buy in the UK (with postage, it costs about $50.00 / £38.00), but I have been absolutely blown away by the quality of the collectables that they contain. Each box is guaranteed to include at least one new release, which is always a hard-backed book and is usually signed by the author and with an exclusive cover. It also contains 3-5 other items, all tied to a monthly theme.

Owlcrates tend to sell out very quickly, thought if you continue paying your monthly subscription they do guarantee that you will receive each box. The January theme was ‘Vengeance Will Be Mine’. Please read on to find out what I thought about the items that it contained, though be warned that this post does contain pictures and lots of spoilers if you’re still waiting for your box to arrive…
