Hey everyone! Time for another Owlcrate unboxing! The theme for this month’s box was “Writer’s Block”, and I am so excited about what was inside!
WARNING! SPOILERS FOR THE MARCH 2016 OWLCRATE BOX BEYOND THIS POINT!!!
First off we have the card that lists what’s featured in the box!:
The first book related item I saw when I opened the box were these beautiful buttons from The Book Boutique! I love the quotes and the designs!
Next up was this pair of banned book socks from Out of Print. I absolutely love fun socks, and this design is super cool!
Next we have this adorable quill-shaped pen! I’m definitely getting Harry Potter vibes from this, and if you take the cap off, it actually has a little nip around the tip of the pen!
The next item in the box was this book of writing prompts: “642 Things To Write About”. I’ve flipped through it already, and it has some really cool writing ideas!
Finally, we have the book: “The Serpent King” by Jeff Zenter!
Here’s the plot description from the book jacket!
Dill has had to wrestle with vipers his whole life—at home, as the only son of a Pentecostal minister who urges him to handle poisonous rattlesnakes, and at school, where he faces down bullies who target him for his father’s extreme faith and very public fall from grace.
He and his fellow outcast friends must try to make it through their senior year of high school without letting the small-town culture destroy their creative spirits and sense of self. Graduation will lead to new beginnings for Lydia, whose edgy fashion blog is her ticket out of their rural Tennessee town. And Travis is content where he is thanks to his obsession with an epic book series and the fangirl turning his reality into real-life fantasy.
Their diverging paths could mean the end of their friendship. But not before Dill confronts his dark legacy to attempt to find a way into the light of a future worth living.
The book also came with a letter from the author and a postcard with a quote from the book!
And that’s about it for this month’s Owlcrate unboxing! To close off, here’s the back of the card, along with a photo of the entire box! Thanks for reading!
