April 2021 Owlcrate Ruthless Rivals box

This month’s box was my first Owlcrate and I really like it! I had a strong feeling which book is going to be in this box, and I really wanted it! So the book is Witches Steeped in Gold by Ciannon Smart, and in this Jamaican-inspired fantasy debut, two enemy witches have to take down a common enemy, so they enter into a deadly alliance. I love to read about witches these days so I have high hopes for this book! 🙂

The items this month were:

  • Et Cetera Card Game designed by Tes Medovich ( @paperbackbones ) I really love this bookish item and it’s really good quality, matt laminated cards in a sturdy silver foiled box
  • Cinnamon Hazelnut Coffee Blend crafted by Fable Grounds Coffee, inspired by the book Where Dreams Descend (it’s on my TBR)
  • Hamilton Phone Wallet designed by Lady Chubb Letters
  • Jay Kristoff’s Nevernight inspired Throw Pillow Case, designed by KDP Letters (I have yet to read this book!)
  • Chopstick set designed by @paperbackbones and inspired by These Violent Delights (did not read this either. So many books i have to read! :D)
  • This month enamel pin is of the Witches Steeped in Gold book, designed by Icey Designs it’s really big and beautiful pin!

Witches Steeped in Gold by Ciannon Smart. This is a signed special edition, it comes with an exclusive cover, foil stamp underneath the dust jacket, and reversible dust jacket with an artwork by Tiara L’Hommedieu ( @bloodydamnit ). It’s really gorgeous!

The original book cover is very similar, the difference is that the background leaves are dark green, on this one is black and gold.
Sneak Peak: the May box theme is Expect the Unexpected, and every box will include an officially licensed Leigh Bardugo item from Out of Print!
