GIVEAWAY: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

54 comments:
Thanks to the lovely creators of OwlCrate, you kindly sent me one of the March boxes to unhaul and review! This month's theme was FANTASY, and the included book was none other than V.E. Schwab's A Darker Shade of Magic. I happened to already own a copy of this book, as it is the readalong pick for my book club (Little Book Club), so I decided to share the excitement of not only this fantastical book, but of OwlCrate's initial success! This month was their first ever and it seems to have done extremely well, with next month's box selling out in less than 24 hours!

I'm sure you are most excited about the giveaway details, so here goes! If you would like to see what else was included in the March OwlCrate box, check out my unboxing video located below the giveaway form.
