OwlCrate: March Writer’s Block Box

Happy One Year Anniversary OwlCrate It is so inspiring to see a small company grow so much in such a short space of time. It’s been one of my favourite subscription boxes to date. It is always jammed packed with wonderful items associated with the theme.

For those who have not heard about OwlCrate it is a monthly book subscription box that sends newly published Young Adult novels and assorted bookish goodies to your door. Each month’s OwlCrate is tailored to a fun theme (past themes include MAGIC, MYTHS & LEGENDS, and DIVERSITY) and will contain one new Young Adult novel, as well as 3-5 other bookish treats to help you get your nerd on.

OwlCrate was created to share the joy of reading with the world. We believe in the importance of literature, and the magic of the written word. Stories help to expand our minds, expose us to new experiences, and show us that we’re not alone. But we also know that reading can often feel like a solitary activity, and we wanted a way to bring book nerds together. By sharing the fun of unboxing your OwlCrates, as well as reading each month’s chosen novel along with other members, we hope you find a safe and happy place among our community.

Our manifesto:
1) No one is too old to read YA.

2) We will not be ashamed of our TBR piles.

3) It’s okay to fall in love with fictional characters.

4) The book is always better than the movie (but the movies are fun too!).

5) Books have the ability to change our world.

If this sounds like something you can relate to, join us today! We promise to only send you the best of the best of Young Adult fiction, and to pleasantly surprise you with bookish goodies every single month.

We can’t wait to get nerdy with you!

Korrina and Robert (creators of OwlCrate, and massive book geeks).

The Fan Empire: February Professor Snape Tribute Box

The Fan Empire’s February Professor Snape (Alan Rickman) box was simply wonderful! It was filled with incredible goodies I will use and didn’t know I needed. Alan Rickman’s recent passing was a blow to our Potter fandom and personally it was incredibly hard for me.  I first fell in love with his acting in Sense and Sensibility and absolutely adored him as Professor Snape.

We are readers, collectors, and fans
We love books! And toys! As fans, we felt the need for a holistic box that would cater to both male and female, young and adult. Thus, The Monthly Prophet Box was born. We aim to deliver toys, exclusive shirts, and quality bookish pieces. This box will focus mostly on fantasy, fairy tales, and science fiction stories that may not be as mainstream as other genres, but therefore highly limited.
We encourage reading and freeing the imagination through a focus on bookish pieces, and hope you enjoy the collections we prepared for you.

Thank you for helping us share the joy of reading!

This is one of the most fun subscription boxes I have ever received! I had been looking for the perfect Christmas + Graduation gift for one of my closet friends and stumbled across this little company on Instagram. I placed a gift order for the Ron Weasley November box and thought I was good to go. Little did I know they were running a contest at the time and I won their October Mystery box!
