October 2016 OwlCrate Review

Posted December 16, 2016 by Lizzy in Reviews / 1 Comment


I am soooo late with this post, but better late than never, yes? That’s what I’m going to keep telling myself, anyway. 😛 OwlCrate is my favorite of the book boxes I’ve tried and I can’t just NOT review a month. So here is my October 2016 OwlCrate review, and if you love this box but didn’t get one, there are a few up for grabs in the OwlCrate shop right now! Also if you decide to subscribe be sure to use this link, it will give me partial credits and fun stuff like that. 😉


October Book: Vassa in the Night. I have to admit I was rather surprised by the book this month. While I definitely see how it fits the theme, I had only heard it mentioned a couple of times in the book blogger circles. It doesn’t seem to have been all that popular, but OwlCrate consistently picks winners so I’m planning to make time to read it soon! This is one of the few books I’ve received from them that wasn’t already on my TBR list. I loved the bookplate that came with it.

October Goodies: The big thing in this box was the beanie from Whosits & Whatsits, which I understand a lot of people were SUPER excited about. It’s for sale now for $22 so it really was a great deal in the box. I, however, really don’t wear beanies and I’m not the biggest Disney fan sooooo…yeah, not my favorite item, but it was still cute!


There is a beautiful and very sturdy bookmark from My Heart My Tribe. I’d never heard of the designer but I’m in love with the little bookmark. Also a cute little spinning wheel button to go with the Sleeping Beauty spinning wheel charm bracelet from The Geeky Cauldron. I have a mild obsession with these type of adjustable bangle bracelets so I was thrilled to see this one!


Last but not least, an adorable little Oz notebook from The Unemployed Philosopher’s Guild.  I hadn’t ever heard of them either but OMG THEIR STUFF IS AMAZING. Go check it out. Seriously. There’s also the bookmark for the New World series and you can see the bookplate better here.

Couldn't resist one more picture from the Unemployed Philosophers....great stocking stuffer idea!

That’s it for the October box! I’ll be back soon with a review of the November box. Thanks for reading!!
