I used to see many videos and pictures of different subscription boxes with great longing. I wasn’t obviously gonna order OwlCrate or any other international subscription box because for that, I would have to sell both of my kidneys.
So, when – in February – this notification popped up on my Instagram about this page called “OwlPost”, I was curious. I opened the account and viewed the pictures and there it was written in the captions that it is the first ever book subscription box in Pakistan. And you know what I did? I screamed with excitement because it was truly a dream come true! I visited the website and facebook pages and I waited and waited because the box was going to launch on 1st March 2016. And at the end of February, I got an email from OwlPost to order the box because they were finally launching.
The boxes were shipped on March 15th but I received the box yesterday. I tried to avoid every single picture of the box on Instagram or anywhere else because I didn’t want to be spoiled. So, when I ultimately received my box, I squealed and fangirled… a lot.
March’s theme: Mystery #ConnectTheDots
So, today I’m going to share all of the goodies and the book that I got with you!
1. A Sherlock Holmes Diary.
2. A Wall Hanging Art.
3. A Cookie with Sherlock Holmes silhouette on it.
4. A Porcelain Hanging Legs Bookmark.
5. A Message In A Bottle
6. A Framed Picture
And the book is…
He Will be My Ruin

He Will be My Ruin

Twenty-eight-year-old Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what’s left of her best friend’s belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a bottle of Xanax and a handle of Maker’s Mark, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers secrets in the childhood lock box hidden in Celine’s apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man who Celine herself claimed would be her ruin.
On the hunt for answers that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine’s private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.
I honestly don’t know much about this book but the synopsis sounds really interesting so I’ll read it.
Let’s get to the review part:
Everything that I received was in a good condition except the framed picture whose frames were broken beyond repair and the foot of the hanging bookmark was detached from the legs. But that happened during shipping and the people from OwlPost were kind and settled everything with me. Another thing is that this book is a New Adult book (I searched it up on Goodreads) when the boxes are supposed to have a YA book.
The material was overall good and the packing was really nice and I liked it. The journal/notebook and the message in a bottle are my favourite one. I mean, look at them! They’re so adorable. ❤
Do I recommend it?
The boxes were amazing and I loved every single thing especially the notebook and the message in a bottle. If you’re from Pakistan and a reader then you should definitely check them out and order a box. They sell at a very reasonable price. Sadly, they’re only shipping within Pakistan at the moment. But the shipping in Pakistan is for free!
I’m definitely looking forward to the April box and I’m really excited about it!
