Are you an incurable bookworm? Do you live in Pakistan? Do you like surprises? Well look no further! Pakistan’s very first (bookish) subscription box is here!
I discovered Owl Post on Instagram. And as soon as I read the word book in the description, I knew this was something I was getting no matter how broke I was! I pre-registered myself for their very first subscription box and eagerly waited. And soon enough, a package of happiness arrived on my doorstep!
TA DAA! Isn’t it beautiful? I was absolutely giddy with joy as I carefully attempted to un-box everything.
An old school seal? 10 points to Gryffindor!!
I instantly knew that I was not going to be disappointed!!! SO MANY goodies!!
Based on the theme of Mystery, the first goodie was this gorgeous Sherlock notebook! 100 points to Gryffindor!!
Just when I thought a Sherlock notebook was good, I spotted this Sherlock cookie!! Om nom nom! 500 points to Gryffindor!!
A photo frame, an extremely cool bookmark, a other small trinkets followed. And then….
The big reveal!!! The BOOK chosen by Owl Post for their March box is He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker.
I was a little disappointed to receive a pirated copy. But in light of the cost of the subscription box, I guess it made sense.
This adorable message awaited me at the bottom of the box.
Am I subscribing to the next box by Owl Post? Well, not only have I already subscribed for the April box, I’ve also turned on the auto renewal option and branded myself as a loyal customer! I love books. Truly, deeply and madly. For me, anything remotely related to books is worth spending money on. Was this subscription box worth it’s cost? It was worth much more!! I also loved the fact that each goodie was provided by a different company, which helped bring out many talented people into the eye of the public.
The only issue I had was the overpowering smell of the box, which I’m guessing was caused by the printing ink on the box. Other than that, the cookie was a little stale and it crumbled all over the other goodies. So I wouldn’t recommend an edible goodie in the next subscription box!
Other than that, absolute perfection! I’ve already advertised about their service to everyone I know. So if you too are a bookworm, go subscribe NOW! You shall not be disappointed!
