Owlcrate Unboxing: July “Make it Out Alive” 

I got some fantastic book mail today! My July @owlcrate arrived and I can’t wait to share it with you. I realized I hadn’t shared my June Owlcrate and thought this is the perfect time. Last month’s theme was Make it Out Alive! Such a fantastic box!.

I’m so excited for last month’s book The Sandcastle Empire. It’s a YA dystopia story about survival in a world taken over by a revolutionary group. We were lucky to also get a second book from @oftomes New World Rising. I’ve had my eye on this book for a while and was thrilled to receive it in last month’s Owlcrate.


And the goodies? I love the gorgeous double sided ACOWAR bookmark by Hey Atlas Creative @treehouseofbooks. The zombie sleep mask cracks me up! And The Giver patch nearly had me crying because I used to read The Giver with my students which I really enjoyed doing. Of course, being trash for Sabaa Tahir, my favorite item was the Ember in the Ashes inspired magnet “Fear is your enemy only if you allow it to be” designed by @littleinklingdesigns! I love Megan’s handlettered bookmarks and was happy to have this! Make sure to scroll down to see close-ups of the goodies!


The July theme was Wanderlust and friends, I don’t know how Korinna does it, but every month she always gives me something I’m hoping for and sometimes things I didn’t know until I got it in an Owlcrate! This month one of my most anticipating releases was included and I nearly died when I saw it. I can’t wait to share it with you!


Happy Friday! I hope your week was good and that you have fun plans for the weekend! Today is our wedding anniversary (16 years). We’re going to have date night Saturday to see Spider-Man and afterward (hopefully) try some ice-cream tacos!


What’s your most anticipated read this year? What are your plans for the weekend?
