Once again, I am back with a super late unboxing of the August OwlCrate. I get so wrapped up in my other posts that I forget to schedule these ones (oops). Anyway, this will actually NOT be my last OwlCrate unboxing, as I decided I wanted to get the September box after seeing the theme reveal. It’s actually been a bit of a struggle, but I’ll get to that at the end. All that said, I was really excited for this box, so let’s get on with what was in the Ruthless Royals box!
I’m back with an unboxing, as promised in my wrap up post! I know I’m a bit late in posting this, but I really liked how my posts were scheduled before I got this and didn’t want to mess with that (sorry not sorry). My previous (and first) unboxing was done all the way back in May, since, as I mentioned in that post, I decided to skip the June box because contemporary typically isn’t my cup of tea. (Please tell that to the 3 contemporaries I read last month.) Still, I know that was the right decision for me, and I’m very happy to have received this box, with the added bonus that I will now be receiving the August box! Here’s what I thought of the July box as a whole!
When I opened up my May OwlCrate and saw this book, I wasn’t really sure what to think. I tend to fall into the unfortunate yet typical pattern of really only reading popular books from big-name publishers. I want to be better about it and support indie publishers, but I also want to be reading all the books I see everyone else talking about. This was the perfect book to convince me to get over my publishing elitism.
A few months back, I decided I wanted to try out a book box. I was a bit skeptical, both because their contents are a little unpredictable (what if you hate the book? what if there’s a lot of merch for a series you haven’t read or don’t like? what if I just don’t like the kind of things included?) and because they’re a bit on the pricey side. Still, I decided I’d give it a go and signed up for a 3-month OwlCrate subscription. I was super excited when my first box came a couple weeks ago. Here’s what was in it and what I thought of it all!
