May’s OwlCrate Box: Comic Explosion

I ordered my second OwlCrate recently because the theme, Comic Explosion, was just my sort of thing. OwlCrate is a YA subscription service based in America and it’s the shipping costs of $20 that makes it a box that I pick and choose when to get it. I have to say I was very surprised at how quickly it arrived on my doorstep. Especially as I received an email at lunchtime today saying it was on its way and I could track it, I click on the tracking number and see it had arrived at 11am! Turns out the email might have been a bit delayed and my box was actually posted last Monday – still, it was an excellent surprise to come home to.

My first OwlCrate Box

My OwlCrate box arrived earlier this week and I can’t wait to show you what was inside. This was the first time I’d subscribed to Owl Crate, while I have tried other subscription boxes I hadn’t really thought about OwlCrate since it is a US based one so presumed it’d cost more in shipping and take a long time to get to me in the UK. I was both right and wrong. Shipping cost $20 which is roughly £15 which is a bit much for me to pay on top of the cost of the actual box, or at least it’s a bit much to spend every month. But I was really surprised by how quick it got to me – it shipped on the 15th and arrived just four days later!

Each month there is a theme and this month’s theme was Good vs Evil and to be honest, that’s pretty much why I decided to give OwlCrate a go this month. I love a villain and this month everyone would receive the same book but you’d either receive Good themed goodies or Evil themed ones. By pure chance my box was an Evil themed one which made me really happy. (more…)
