First look and I couldn’t really see much of what was in the box but it was really heavy which I’ve come to expect from these book type boxes.

The Love that Split the World by Emily Henry ($10.58) – This is the debut novel by Emily Henry that marries the big romance and nostalgia of Friday Night Lights with the time-bending mystery of the Time Traveler’s Wife. I was a fan of both the show and the book so I can’t wait to read this one.

Natalie’s last summer in her small Kentucky hometown is off to a magical start…until she starts seeing the “wrong things.” They’re just momentary glimpses at first—her front door is red instead of its usual green, there’s a pre-school where the garden store should be. But then her whole town disappears for hours, fading away into rolling hills and grazing buffalo, and Nat knows something isn’t right.

That’s when she gets a visit from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls “Grandmother,” who tells her: “You have three months to save him.” The next night, under the stadium lights of the high school football field, she meets a beautiful boy named Beau, and it’s as if time just stops and nothing exists. Nothing, except Natalie and Beau.

It also came with a signed bookplate and a note from the author.  I didn’t take a picture but all of these were sealed in a bag inside the box which kept them protected and safe from all the squiggles in the box which are now all over my desk.

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells ($10.99) – A classic book and one I know I read years ago. This is the book that has influenced so many other books and movies.  Normally OwlCrate only includes one book but I like that they sent another one this month. I am a bit over the target age range for this book so I have read this however there are many people especially the true YA audience that probably has not and introducing them to some of the classic books is always a plus.

It also came with a coordinating bookmark.

Lunar Chronicles Tote Bag – I’m loving this bag that was designed by the OwlCrate team just for this box to celebrate love and the end of the Lunar Chronicles books. The bag is fairly large while not being too heavy. It would be great to carry a book and our a journal around with you.

Tardis Brooch from Vector Engraving – Oh my I love this.  I’m not huge into Dr Who but I have watched before and I think the Tardis is a true sci-fi symbol that most people understand. I do however love their etsy store and I NEED some of the Earrings. They have Star Wars, Serenity, Disney and so many more. Make sure to check them out for all your geeky nerdy items.

I liked this box even though I haven’t gotten all into some of the  items they are really nice and I do understand them. I’ve heard great things on the Lunar Chronicles and I keep looking at them so I really need to give them a try.  The new book in this box looks really good and pulls from other things I already like so I can’t wait to dig in and give it a read.
