Book Summary from Amazon:
Emily Henry’s stunning debut novel is Friday Night Lights meets The Time Traveler’s Wife, and perfectly captures those bittersweet months after high school, when we dream not only of the future, but of all the roads and paths we’ve left untaken.
Natalie’s last summer in her small Kentucky hometown is off to a magical start…until she starts seeing the “wrong things.” They’re just momentary glimpses at first—her front door is red instead of its usual green, there’s a pre-school where the garden store should be. But then her whole town disappears for hours, fading away into rolling hills and grazing buffalo, and Nat knows something isn’t right.
That’s when she gets a visit from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls “Grandmother,” who tells her: “You have three months to save him.” The next night, under the stadium lights of the high school football field, she meets a beautiful boy named Beau, and it’s as if time just stops and nothing exists. Nothing, except Natalie and Beau.
How to get me excited about anything: describe it as “Friday Night Lights meets…” This book sounds good to me!
And this book also comes with a signed book plate sticker and a letter from the author!
The Lunar Chronicles Inspired Tote – Value $8?
This is an exclusive for Owl Crate subscribers and I love it – I’m a big fan of the books! (Although, I have to admit I haven’t read Winter yet. I bought it the day it came out, but when I started reading it I realized I didn’t remember everything from the previous books as well as I thought I did, so I have a re-read situation!) If you haven’t read the books yet, I recommend reading Cinder asap to get started!
Vector Engraving Tardis Brooch – Value $12?
I’m a little confused on this item. In OwlCrate’s February spoiler post they mentioned the brand included would be Juniper and Ivy, but this is a different brand. Same looking items, and same location though, so I’m guessing just two different brands under the same company?
Here is the brooch in my hand to give a better sense of scale:
The Time Machine by H.G. Wells – Value $5.50?
This is a new edition of the book from Rock Paper Books. (Originally published in 1895!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $37 (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. I think they did a great job with the theme this month, and even though I’m not a big sci-fi reader, I’m excited to try The Love That Split the World.
What do you think of the February OwlCrate box?
