My Bookish Life 3. My First Owlcrate


I've been following Owlcrate since before they sent their first batch of crates on March of the last year. I always wanted to order one, but unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity until now. I'm so happy I finally did it!

The Owlcrate of February 2016 was all about Sci-Fi Love. It included:
  • The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry along with a signed bookplate and a very sweet message from the author;
  • An edition of The Time Machine by H.G. Wells from Rock Paper Books;
  • A The Lunar Chronicles tote bag made by the Owlcrate team;
  • A wooden Tardis brooch handmade by Vector Engraving.
I already owned a ebook copy of The Love that Split the World, but the physical edition is gorgeous. Have you seen how beautiful the cover is? *.* Also, as I live in Portugal, the chance of signed books is under zero, so receiving a signed bookplate from Emily Henry was a lovely surprise. And yes, this time Owlcrate had not one, but two books! How much more exciting could it be? I loved this edition of The Time Machine.  

The tote bag is super cute. I really have to read The Lunar Chronicles now (re-read Cinder, because I read it a few years ago). I loved everything, but I wish it didn't have anything Doctor Who related. I know, everyone loves it, but I don't. The Tardis brooch is pretty and very well-done, but I wish the brooch had been about another sci-fi show or film. 

I'll keep my Owlcrate subscription for now (the shipping is expensive, so I'm not sure for how long I'll keep it). And if you are reading this, I recommend you to get one Owlcrate. Even if it's only one time experience, it will be an awesome experience!
