Adult Coloring Book: Stress Relieving Patterns 
+ Coloring Pencils

Retail Value:  $10.99

I love coloring books!  I get stressed out a lot and coloring does seem to help.

Eleanor and Park Necklace

This necklace is an Owlcrate original.  I own the book Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell but I haven't read it yet.  I did enjoy her other book, Fangirl.  This is a cute necklace!

Decomposition Notebook

I could always use a small notebook like this one to carry around in my purse in case I need to jot things down (like reminders for appointments or song lyrics).  

Harry Potter Art Print by Susanne Draws

I love Harry Potter and this is an awesome art print of Harry, Hermione, and Ron.

'Hogwarts is my Home' Button by Taryn Draws

Another cute Harry Potter item!

Owlcrate also included a preview card of what was to come in the September box!

My Thoughts:  I love Owlcrate.  They always include an interesting book and awesome bookish goodies.  I have never been disappointed with an Owlcrate and I definitely recommend this subscription box to lovers of young adult books.  I can't wait to read the novel from Kasie West and wear that really cute Eleanor and Park necklace.  I loved this month's box!
