Subscription Box #Review: July 2018 #OwlCrate!

I love surprises and subscription boxes so I decided to buy a few different ones and then review them for you guys because why not! So you will get to see a few different subscription box reviews!

Just so everyone knows, I live in Canada, so the prices and such that I am going to talk about are in Canadian Dollars and shipping times are Canadian since they ship it out of Vancouver, British Columbia.

The OwlCrate website!

Every month. They also offer an OwlCrate Jr. box for MG and younger books if you don't get enough with the regular OwlCrate box.

Monthly: $29.99 USD
Every Three Months: $86.98 USD
Every Six Months: $167.94 USD

Plus shipping, which for me, cost $10.59 USD

I just looked at my bank statement and it cost me $53.54 Canadian. Which is a BIT expensive for me but I am making money now so it's all good.

I got the email notification on a Monday and I got the box on a Thursday. Very quick turnaround time. I was very impressed.

The ordering process is simple. Choose your box, put in your shipping address, and boom! Plus you can pay with PayPal which makes it super convenient and easy.

The book of this month was ... MY PLAIN JANE by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton.

In the July #OwlCrate box was a copy of MY PLAIN JANE by the #ladyjanies! It is a retelling of Jane Eyre so I am super excited to get to it! I love the exclusive cover too - purple is my favourite colour! Is this on your TBR? Did you read MY LADY JANE? Tell me below! // You may think you know the story. After a miserable childhood, penniless orphan Jane Eyre embarks on a new life as a governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she meets one dark, brooding Mr. Rochester. Despite their significant age gap (!) and his uneven temper (!!), they fall in love—and, Reader, she marries him. (!!!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Or does she? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Prepare for an adventure of Gothic proportions, in which all is not as it seems, a certain gentleman is hiding more than skeletons in his closets, and one orphan Jane Eyre, aspiring author Charlotte Brontë, and supernatural investigator Alexander Blackwood are about to be drawn together on the most epic ghost hunt this side of Wuthering Heights. // #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookworm #bibliophile #stacks #bookstacks #pink #tulips #flowers #blogger #bookblogger #floral #shelfie #bestofbookstagram #bookstagramfeatures #mybookstagramfeatures #bookishfeatures #nature #bookishcanadians

Also included in the box was:
  • An exclusive pennant flag inspired by MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN by Ransom Riggs
  • A Stranger Things @originalfunko keychain - I got Eleven but Dustin was also a possibility
  • Spooky and yet mystifyingly minty fresh Ouija board mints from #BostonAmericaCorp
  • Skull push pins created by #TeamOwlCrate
  • An amazing wallet designed by @reverieandink complete with a quote from The Raven Cycle series
  • A vinyl sticker designed by @tjlubrano featuring Luna Lovegood
  • A super cute art print by @aunjuliart

I feel like this one wasn't really worth it for me. To be fair, I thought about skipping it because the theme "Strange and Unusual" didn't really appeal to me because those aren't typically the books I read. But I saw a Raven Cycle themed item was in here so I tried it, but I was a little disappointed. I did let my subscription renew for the "Ruthless Royals" box so hopefully I am satisfied with that. If not, I may stop subscribing to OwlCrate.

Do you purchase subscription boxes? Are you going to check this one out?
