June’s Owlcrate box is centered around survival! Some classic dystopians will be featured, including Divergent, The Giver, and more!
If this box sounds cool to you, you can still get a box!

As per usual, the first thing out of the box is the card with spoilers (I don’t look at it until after I unbox everything!) and the collectible pin.
This item is an exclusive bath bomb. It’s themed around Divergent: when you use it, a charm will come out and sort you into a faction!
Full disclosure, I haven’t read Divergent yet…and I don’t plan to?

This is a patch that you can iron onto a jean jacket. It’s inspired by The Giver by Lois Lowry. Have any of you read it? I really enjoyed it, personally!

I’m not a huge fan of sleep masks, but my brother is, so I’ll probably end up giving it to him – he loves the zombie designs as well!

I’m going to bet the majority of you know this quote! It’s from ACOWAR by Sarah J. Maas! The quote is: “You do not fear…you do not falter. You do not yield.”

This has to be my favorite item included! This is a giant magnet, with a quote from Sabaa Tahir’s An Ember in the Ashes.
The quote is: “Fear is only your enemy if you allow it to be.”
I have not read the book, but I love that it’s a magnet! Have you read it? If so, what did you think? I would love to know if I should put it on my TBR or not.

This is not the book of the month! I did want to read this one though – it’s a dystopian called New World Rising. It’s published by a newer company, and I believe the third book in this series comes out this year, if it is not out already.

Once again, the book for this month came with an exclusive cover! I believe most of the Owlcrate books now will as well. TBH – just another reason to subscribe!
The book for this month is…
The Sandcastle Empire
When all hope is gone, how do you survive?
Before the war, Eden’s life was easy—air conditioning, ice cream, long days at the beach. Then the revolution happened, and everything changed.
Now a powerful group called the Wolfpack controls the earth and its resources. Eden has lost everything to them. They killed her family and her friends, destroyed her home, and imprisoned her. But Eden refuses to die by their hands. She knows the coordinates to the only neutral ground left in the world, a place called Sanctuary Island, and she is desperate to escape to its shores.
Eden finally reaches the island and meets others resistant to the Wolves—but the solace is short-lived when one of Eden’s new friends goes missing. Braving the jungle in search of their lost ally, they quickly discover Sanctuary is filled with lethal traps and an enemy they never expected.
This island might be deadlier than the world Eden left behind, but surviving it is the only thing that stands between her and freedom.
I haven’t read a dystopian in a while, and I’m actually excited to read this one! It sounds tropey, but it also sounds like it has the potential to be unique. I’m definitely willing to give it a try!
Next month the theme is…
The July box is themed around Wanderlust! If you enjoy travelling, this is your box!
Sneak peak: it will include an (officially licensed) item from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!
That’s it! What item was your favorite?
