The words "fight like a girl" mean a lot to me, so the second that I saw OwlCrate post their theme for the month of May, I purchased the box before they were sold out. I was not disappointed with any of the amazing products included in this month's box, as they all correlated with the theme perfectly. Many of the fierce feminine characters from some of my favorite books, such as Six of Crows, were included in this box. Below, I walk you through each item featured in OwlCrate's month of May box.
The first thing that caught my eye when opening this box was the design that was featured on the placard, booklet, and pin. This character embodies both the fierce and feminine theme of the box, and fits closely in line with the book included in the box, one based on Vikings. I loved how fluid each design was, and how the pin is taken straight from the design, instead of the usual pin that differs.
Whether you have read A Court of Thorns and Roses or not, this hanging wall poster speaks to all, and it definitely looks great with whatever color palette your room is because of the minimalist colors and light wood. Both the design and font work perfectly together to create a fluid design that looks stunning on any wall. It is also a very inspirational quote to read every day.
This stunning bath bomb is based off of the character Zélie from Children of Blood and Bone smells indescribable, but amazing. When placed in a bath, it turns it a vivid red color that leaves your skin smooth and soft. As someone who loves a good bath bomb, I can say that I will definitely be looking into more of whipped up wonderful's products, because I have never seen a bath bomb with so much intensity (I thought it was going to dye my skin!) that left my skin feeling soft.
A book I have recently read, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, features one of the fiercest female characters I have seen in a fantasy novel, known as Inej. This art print encaptures her in all her fighting glory, and it is great to hang on a wall, put in a picture frame, or place on a bookshelf, as a reminder of one of the many awesome female characters that show up in the books we read.
This box was the first ever to feature two books in it! Catching Stars is an indie novel about a powerful witch and a recent escapee from prison who must forge an uneasy alliance in order to survive. It definitely sounds action packed and I am excited to read it! It is the first in a soon to be series.
The OwlCrate book of the month was Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young. As always, OwlCrate now always has the book itself signed by the author, and the cover is exclusive to OwlCrate. In this cover, the lettering and axe are both silver instead of gold. The book also came with a letter from the author and a pin relating to the book. Sky in the Deep follows a young warrior named Eelyn who fights with her Viking clan. Her life is crossed with her enemy brother's (who she thought was dead) in a battle, and is forced to trust his friend in order to unite the two fighting clans.
That concludes the month of May 2018 OwlCrate box. It was a jam packed box with many items that I am excited to use, and I cannot wait to read both of the books. What was your favorite part about this month's box? Let me know in the comments below! Have a fantastic week
