August OwlCrate Subscription Box- YA Realistic/Contemporary Fiction
I am a little behind on reviewing this August OwlCrate Box, but I still wanted to share the awesomeness it. I am a huge Realistic/Contemporary fiction fan so I have thoroughly enjoyed the book P.S. I Like You by Kasie West that came in this month's box.
In this month's box came this fantastic Eleanor and Park necklace; for a Young Adult (YA) literature fan like myself it's perfect. I actually love the length and look of this necklace, and I have worn it at least once a week (which for my non-jewelry wearing self this is a big deal).
This necklace is an OwlCrate original made by them just for this box; you can't get it anywhere else. How fun and cool is that? This is one reason I really enjoy OwlCrate (besides the fact that they also love Harry Potter). They often put something in their box made by them, or someone else, that is unique and one of a kind.
I also love this small composition book. it's adorable, fun, and useful.
I do think this awesome HP pin, by Taryn Draws, and this very cool print by Susanne Draws was a great touch for this YA High (aka books with a school emphasis) box. I personally love any reason to throw in something with the Harry Potter connection, and I think they are both so cute and well done.
I teach a parent education class, and in a class last week one of the mom's mentioned how she likes to color when the kids and life make her a little stressed. Stress doesn't do anyone good. We aren't as good of parents when we stress, and we aren't as creative, happy, or efficient. After hearing her stress relieving advice I found it fitting that this adult coloring book I got in my OwlCrate is designed to be Stress Relieving. It's a great book with really great patterns. I have sometimes found adult coloring book patterns to be annoying or obnoxious patterns. However, this one by Blue Star is actually really impressive, and I've enjoyed my relaxation time.
The reason I pay for this subscription box is for the books. I have always been happy with the book selections, and this months book has been just as enjoyable. P.S. I Like You by Kasie West is a fun realistic/contemporary fiction set in an Arizona high school. There is obviously, a touch of romance in this character driven story.
It's a fun read, and I will give you a full review of it in my next blog post.
If you are thinking of treating yourself to a subscription box, or if you are thinking a teenager of yours might enjoy one, I highly suggest OwlCrate. If you decide and use my link, I'll be grateful. If I somehow get 3 friends to join then I may get a month's crate for free. Then I can think to maybe get that children's lit box I've been eyeing for my kids.
Happy Subscription Box fun! I really do enjoy mail day when my OwlCrate comes.
