Book Summary from Amazon:
Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne. The Brontë siblings find escape from their constrained lives via their rich imaginations. The glittering world of Verdopolis and the romantic and melancholy world of Gondal literally come to life under their pens, offering the sort of romance and intrigue missing from their isolated parsonage home. But at what price? As Branwell begins to slip into madness and the sisters feel their real lives slipping away, they must weigh the cost of their powerful imaginations, even as the characters they have created—the brooding Rogue and dashing Duke of Zamorna—refuse to let them go.
This is an interesting premise! It gets mixed reviews on Amazon and GoodReads, so I’m not sure if it will be for me, but I’ll give it a try!
This set also came with a paper doll kit:
And an exclusive letter for Owl Crate subscribers from Lena:
Ron Weasley Funko POP Vinyl Figure – Value $9.50
This is the first box from Owl Crate that included a POP! Subscribers will get one of five Harry Potter characters! I was secretly hoping for Snape, but we will be buying the whole collection anyway now that we have one so that’s OK! Here is a closer look at Ron:
Evie Bookish Print Inspired by Throne of Glass – Value $8?
This measures 5.5 X 8.5 inches, and is from one of my favorite YA books of all time! I highly recommend the Throne of Glass series if you haven’t read it yet1
Evie Bookish The Trees Speak Latin Bookmark – Value $2?
An item from another YA series I enjoyed! Did the Raven King book release date get pushed back? I feel like I preordered it so long ago…
Geek Fire Labs Patronus Lip Balm – Value $4
A Harry Potter inspired lip balm that tastes like mint and white chocolate!? Love it!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $35.50 (using the Amazon sale prices). I think that’s a good value for a book box, especially with the curation and bonus book extras that OwlCrate includes each month. Every OwlCrate box feels so special – you can really tell that a lot of thought goes into the box each month! (And of course, I love the Harry Potter items this month!)
