Book Summary from Amazon:
Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.
Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.
There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker, Reid. He’s a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.
This book also came with a signed bookplate sticker and a letter from the author:
And a decal sticker:
I really enjoyed Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, so I was pumped to see Owl Crate featuring Becky Albertalli’s latest book! This book is cute, funny, and a quick read – I’m sure I’ll be finished with it in another day!
Bookish goodies time!
Storiarts Pride and Prejudice Headband – Value $14
This is officially my favorite headband ever! It’s made with a 100% cotton stretch knit, and it fits my head comfortably! (If you have a big head like I do, you know how difficult it is to find a good headband!)
And it stays in place so well, too! The text design with a passage from Pride & Prejudice is lovely, too.
And Storiarts included a coupon for 10% off anything in their shop, too!
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda Bookworm Boutique Keychain – Value $8?
(This keychain is an exclusive design for OwlCrate subscribers, so I’m guessing on the value.)
I like the OREO detail on the flip side! (And I had no idea they are making this book into a movie!)
This is a black tea with chocolate and cherry flavoring. It definitely has a dessert tea vibe!
Subscribers will receive one of three candles inspired by couples from Rainbow Rowell’s books! This is the one Rainbow Rowell book I still need to read – I think it is a sign!
(And the candle is a yummy vanilla cupcake!)
Evie Bookish A Court of Thorns and Roses Print – Value $5?
Sarah J Maas is one of my all-time favorite YA authors, so of course, I love this print, too. (And this is a good reminder that A Court of Wings and Ruin comes out on May 2nd!
Umberland by Wendy Spinale Preview
The first book in this series, Everland, was included in the May 2016 Owl Crate, so I appreciate the follow up with a preview of the next book!
And each OwlCrate box now comes with an exclusive pin to match the theme!
And a hint for the upcoming box:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $45 (using the Amazon sale prices and my estimates of some of these exclusive items). I think that’s a good value for a book box, especially with the curation, exclusive items, and bonus book extras that OwlCrate includes each month.
I think OwlCrate does SUCH a wonderful job at putting together a box. It is always such a treat to open! I’m already excited for the May box!
What do you think of the April OwlCrate box? Did you like the book?
