Hey, guys! We’re back from the dead! For now. Until life gets us yet again and drags us away from our blog for the upteenth time.

We’ve come back to tell you guys about this awesome thing known as OwlCrate. If you’re a YA lover like Rachel and I, then this is the perfect thing for you. Each month, a box will be sent out including a brand new YA (hardcover! Be still, our hearts!) release, 3-5 book themed goodies (jewelry, totes, treats, etc.), exclusive items from publishers and authors, and a note telling you about the novel and the items included. The box is $29.99 plus shipping; both Rachel and I ended up paying $36.98 after shipping and we live on opposite sides of the US. The boxes ship out on the 20th of each month with the first box being shipped out on March 20th. Each box also has a theme to it (March’s theme is fantasy!)
Rachel and I both ordered it, and we will be sure to let you guys know what we think of the contents (and we’ll probably make an unboxing post!) If you’re interested, check out their site and sign up!
Another subscription worth mentioning is Colleen Hoover’s brand new service, Bookworm Box. Her service will be sending out 2 signed romance novels each month, but there’s been no mention of additional goodies. There’s no set price yet, although she did mention they’re looking at $29.99 as well. Bonus: all profit will be donated to charity. Good intentions aside, Rachel and I are both on the fence about it and are waiting for the first batch to roll out and be reviewed before we subscribe to the service.
Let us know in the comments below if you’ve signed up for either (or any other!) subscriptions! We can’t wait to get our boxes and let you guys know what we think of it!
