OwlCrate is a YA book subscription box. Each month they send you a newly released YA book with some bookish goodies.

FYI – this box is usually in waitlist mode, but as of today (10/25 at 5 PM ET), it is currently available. If you sign up for a subscription, your first box will be the November box.

Soundless by Richelle Mead – Retail Value $19.99 (On Amazon for $14.02)

Book summary from Amazon:

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiguo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever….

Adagio Teas Red Riding Hood Tea Tin – Value $10?

(Subscribers will receive one of four different blends). This is a caffeine free tea, and I love that you can see the apple pieces in the tea bags:

It’s a sweet blend without have to add sugar!

The Colorful Geek Percy Jackson Camp Half-Blood Bracelet – Value $5

(For Harry Potter fans – they also make Mischief Managed bracelets!)

My Clockwork Castle Pocket Mirror – Value $3

I think I have pocket mirror overload thanks to Birchbox Limited Edition boxes, so this will be gifted/swapped.

The Geeky Cauldron Castle Locket Necklace – Value $12

Does anyone else think of Disney any time you see a castle that even somewhat resembles the Disney Cinderella Castle? 🙂

Here is the locket opened:

(It has a magnetic closure).

 

Verdict: This box has a value of about $44 (using the Amazon sale price of the book). 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’ve been seeing promotions for Soundless for months now, so I’m excited to finally get a chance to read it. And as always, I think Owl Crate picked some cute and fun items to go with the theme this month!

What do you think of the November OwlCrate box?

OwlCrate is a monthly subscription box for people who love Young Adult literature. Every month they send you a highly anticipated new YA release, as well as 3-5 bookish items (such as fandom jewelry, collectible toys, bookmarks, and more!). Each box will also include exclusive content from authors a... read more.
