Due to having received the same books in FairyLoot and OwlCrate, I was considering cancelling my account with one of them. However, reading both little hints about the books they were planning for March, I felt confident enough that it wasn’t going to be the same book this time around. The theme for the March OwlCrate was Across the Galaxy and it promised items from Guardians of the Galaxy, Red Rising and many more. Their shipping was super quick again and once I had received my dispatch email, I received the crate the next day.
Again, spoiler warning for all the items in the box!
I felt like there were a lot of lovely items in this months book box. Subscribers received a Pint-Sized Hero from Funko, based on the Guardians of the Galaxy. I got Nebula and even if it wouldn’t have been my first choice, I am kind of happy with it. It looks well made like anything that Funko creates.
As always there was a lovely scented candle. This one was based on The Illuminae Files from Wick & Fable. There were two different ones and I received Hannah Donnelly.
There was a pin badge and a book mark. It’s a hand-painted watercolour bookmark with a Star Wars Quote on it. I have started to collect bookmarks now, so I’m always happy to receive one.
One of the bigger items this time was a beautiful, galaxy print infinity scarf and an exclusive Lunar Chronicles inspired ceramic mug designed by artist Sasha Natasha.
Now for the book, I had a suspicion as to what it was and I was right when I opened the crate:
Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston and it is accompanied by a letter from the writer and an exclusive character poster.
I have been looking forward to reading this book after Nora wrote a review about it. You can read her Heart of Iron review here.
A very decent book box this month and I am just very happy that the March themes between FairyLoot and OwlCrate are different.
OwlCrate really does deliver high quality products and I love their speedy delivery service. However, getting different book boxes is quite pricey and I will have to start cutting back. The only reason why I’m not subbing to OwlCrate is the fact that they are USA based and I will have to pay more for shipping. I’m sticking with FairyLoot for now, but will be trying out Illumicrate for a quarter and see what they have to offer.
If you are tempted to try out OwlCrate, then I highly recommend it, but it is probably best to choose between either OwlCrate or FairyLoot not to risk getting the same book twice.
