January’s OwlCrate theme is Magical Artifacts. OwlCrate always has the best info card prints. One side is a print representing the theme and the other side is the information for the box contents.

The information card tells a little bit about all the items in this month’s box along with little comments on why they were selected or other fun tidbits. The theme follows through even with the info. It is always decorated to go along with that month.

Everything in my January OwlCrate box.

Every month the book comes in a plastic sleeve to protect it in travel. There is a sticker on the outside of the back letting us know that it is exclusive. I peel this sticker off and place it on the inner sleeve of the jacket.

The booklet includes a comparison of the OwlCrate cover to the Regular cover!

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi ($12.91) – A mystery! I love a good period mystery and then add in a mix of characters and it sounds like a story not to miss.

No one believes in them. But soon no one will forget them.

It’s 1889. The city is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. Here, no one keeps tabs on dark truths better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. When the elite, ever-powerful Order of Babel coerces him to help them on a mission, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.

To hunt down the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin calls upon a band of unlikely experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian banished from his home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in arms if not blood.

Together, they will join Séverin as he explores the dark, glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the course of history–but only if they can stay alive.

The book also came with a note from the author and the book is signed by the author!

To go along with our story this month we also got an exclusive Luggage Tag!

Team OwlCrate included this exclusive antler bracelet inspired by Shadow and Bones. I’ve really been into jewelry lately and this will be going into my stash. I’m a gold girl and this is pretty awesome and while delicate looking it is sturdy and well made.

Juniper & Ivy Designs made this exclusive wooden letter holder just for the box. Funny but I don’t own a letter opener and just the other day was saying I need to get one. I was having issues getting a letter open and ended up with scissors.  This will be so much better and is just stinkin’ cute.

We are all huge Harry Potter fans in my house and these inspired socks are phenomenal. With them we have everything we need with the resurrection stone, elder wand and cloak of invisibility.

How gorgeous is this zipper pouch inspired by A Darker Shade of Magic. Stella Bookish Art designed this stunner and I can’t wait to fill it up. I’m a bit of a pouch-aholic and I can never get too many of them.

The zipper pouch is two sided with the artwork going the whole way around. The colors are really inspiring and will be fantastic in my to go bag.

Holly Dunn Designs illustrated this eye catching wall tapestry. We’ve just redone our playroom and with some newly available wall space this tapestry inspired by The Golden Compass will fit perfect above a chair for reading. The quote is so perfect for a book box and not one that I knew but it is quickly becoming a favorite.

OwlCrate has started a monthly enamel pin collection! Each pin is going to be represented of that month’s theme and will come from all different artists. This month was inspired by our monthly book and designed by Alchemy and Ink.  In addition to books I’m also a NC State Wolfpack fan so anything with wolves is a YES in my book. This pin is so detailed and a heavy weight. I can’t wait to see what other pins they include in the boxes.

Owl Crate sent another great box this month. I always love the direction they go based on the theme and how all the items relate back to the book. I’m really excited for the new monthly pins and how they can be even more inspired.  This month the bracelet and the zipper pouch are the jump out items to me. The whole look of both of them is so me and I can’t wait to use them a lot.
