OwlCrate December 2017 Review: Seize The Day

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a Merry Christmas (if you celebrate). It’s that time again! Time for another OwlCrate review. This month’s theme is Seize The Day, and the box is filled with all sorts of cool merchandise and goodies from Harry Potter, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Everything Everything, The Serpent King, Percy Jackson and more!

OwlCrate is a monthly subscription of books. Each OwlCrate contains one new Young Adult novel, as well as 3 to 5 other bookish items that all match with the monthly theme. My daughter loves reading and getting the cute items that go with her books each month. This really helps her discover new authors and find others books to read.

OwlCrate always provides information cards. The information cards tell a little about all the items that are in that month’s box along with little comments on why they were selected. It is always decorated to go along with that month theme. My daughter doesn’t read it right away she likes to be surprised with what is in the box.

The book of the month uses a gorgeous and vivid cover exclusive to Owlcrate. In this case, Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills. Here is a quick summary of the book I found on Amazon.

“When Claudia accidentally eavesdrops on the epic breakup of Paige and Iris, the it-couple at her school, she finds herself in hot water with prickly, difficult Iris. Thrown together against their will in the class production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, along with the goofiest, cutest boy Claudia has ever known, Iris and Claudia are in for an eye-opening senior year.
Smart, funny, and thoroughly, wonderfully flawed, Claudia navigates a world of intense friendships and tentative romance in this book about expanding your horizons, allowing yourself to be vulnerable, and accepting―and loving―people for who they really are.”

Being a Owlcrate exclusive cover there’s always something different than the original cover. The difference is the original book has the circle by the title in blue. The Owlcrate book has it in green. Its looks really cool.

This book also comes with a letter from the author and a signed sticker bookplate.

My daughter received this Harry Potter inspired “Don’t Let the Muggles Get You Down” tote bag by Bookworm Boutique.

Next, is a cute Novelly Yours “The Dreaming Tree” candle inspired by The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord.

Owlcrate included this exclusive wooden ornament by Juniper and Ivy Designs to brighten up your tree. This ornament is inspired by Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon.

She received this adorable Planner and Reading Journal created by OwlCrate and Blue Star Press. My daughter already has plans to use this to keep her organized in 2018!

She also received a magnet inspired by the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. The magnet was designed by Ink & Wonder Design. The perfect quote for this months theme.

She also received an excerpt of ‘Lucky In Love’. There’s also an interview with Kasie West on the back.

This double-sided bookmark features a quote from ‘The Serpent King’ and ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’. It is made by Little Inklings Design. My daughter never uses these as a bookmark. She places them on a corkboard in her room that has a collection of bookmarks, stickers, etc.

This month they included an adorable “foolish hearts” embroidered patch. It’s so cute!

Here’s the copy of the OwlCrate newsletter with interviews and other cool stuff.

 Each Month OwlCrate sends a pin to go along with the theme of the month. This is the Seize the Day pin.

Next month, January ’s theme is “Fearsome Fairy Tales” and has items inspired by Sleeping Beauty, Hansel & Gretel, Rapunzel and Red Riding Hood.


Thank you for the wonderful inspiring year and see you again in 2018.
