Once again I have been absolutely blown away by the awesomeness that is OwlCrate! The OwlCrate March box theme was “Across the Galaxy” and completely blew me away! Owlcrate is continually creating better and better boxes as the months pass by. This box was perfect for people who fantasy books, and had items inspired by The Illuminae Files, Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Wars and more! As usual the box also included a OwlCrate pin that matched the beautiful art card.
The March box contained:
- A ceramic mug inspired by The Lunar Chronicles (designed by @sasha__natasha)
- a beautiful galaxy print infinity scarf (pattern designed by @themichellegray)
- an Illuminae inspired candle (handmade by @wickandfable)
- a stunning Star Wars inspired water color bookmark (hand painted by @lexyolivia)
- a cute Guardians of the Galaxy pint size hero blind bag from @originalfunko
- a super cool Red Riding inspired art print (designed by @nerdy.post)
The book for this month was Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston, which is an awesome sounding magic realism/fantasy book that is an “incredibly fun tale inspired by the story of Anastasia, but set in space!”
This book sounds crazy good, and just look how pretty the OwlCrate exclusive cover is (The original has silver text instead of gold and it doesn’t have sprayed purple pages).
Seventeen-year-old Ana is a scoundrel by nurture and an outlaw by nature. Found as a child drifting through space with a sentient android called D09, Ana was saved by a fearsome space captain and the grizzled crew she now calls family. But D09—one of the last remaining illegal Metals—has been glitching, and Ana will stop at nothing to find a way to fix him.
Ana’s desperate effort to save D09 leads her on a quest to steal the coordinates to a lost ship that could offer all the answers. But at the last moment, a spoiled Ironblood boy beats Ana to her prize. He has his own reasons for taking the coordinates, and he doesn’t care what he’ll sacrifice to keep them.
When everything goes wrong, she and the Ironblood end up as fugitives on the run. Now their entire kingdom is after them—and the coordinates—and not everyone wants them captured alive.
What they find in a lost corner of the universe will change all their lives—and unearth dangerous secrets. But when a darkness from Ana’s past returns, she must face an impossible choice: does she protect a kingdom that wants her dead or save the Metal boy she loves?
All in all this was a pretty awesome box, which I definitely expect from OwlCrate. Next month, April’s theme is “Shadows and Secrets” and has items inspired by Six of Crows, The Mortal Instruments, Harry Potter, The Young Elites and others (One of the items is a delicious bag of coffee made by @bonescoffeecompany). Seeing as the book in April’s box is described as “a journey through a sinful city full of characters with loose morals, secret identities and sly tricks. The world building is enchanting, with a mysterious plot that will hook you immediately,” I am almost 99% sure that the book is Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody.
