Subscription Box Review: Owlcrate for Readers

I LOVED this box!! September was themed Literary Ladies and Owlcrate did a perfect job putting this box together. A lot of the comments on other videos were that this has been their best box yet and even though this is my first, I am going to have to agree!

September Leading Ladies

Of course there have been a lot of leading ladies throughout the history of literature, but a lot of things included in this box are centered around more recent heroines. I wouldn't have had a problem with either, but I love that I recognized or could place all of the items in the box with the exception of the extra prints.

Dumplin by Julie Murphy | $17.99 (on back) or $10.29 Amazon
Synopsis: Self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson (dubbed “Dumplin’” by her former beauty queen mom) has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body. With her all-American beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked . . . until Will takes a job at Harpy’s, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn’t surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back.

Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does. Along the way, she’ll shock the hell out of Clover City—and maybe herself most of all.

With starry Texas nights, red candy suckers, Dolly Parton songs, and a wildly unforgettable heroine— Dumplin’ is guaranteed to steal your heart.

Divergent Inspired Tote | $20.33 + $4.93 Shipping (store)
