The January 2016 Owlcrate included:

Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley (hardcover)

This month's novel looks really interesting!

Retail Value:  $17.95  Amazon Price:  $12.06

Goodreads Rating:  3.71 stars

Goodreads Synopsis:

Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne. The Brontë siblings have always been close. After all, nothing can unite four siblings quite like life in an isolated parsonage on the moors. Their vivid imaginations lend them escape from their strict, spartan upbringing, actually transporting them into their created worlds: the glittering Verdopolis and the romantic and melancholy Gondal. But at what price? As Branwell begins to slip into madness and the sisters feel their real lives slipping away, they must weigh the cost of their powerful imaginations, even as their characters—the brooding Rogue and dashing Duke of Zamorna—refuse to let them go.

This richly conceived, haunting fantasy draws on the early writings of this most famous literary family to explore the deathless bonds between sisters and brothers, between writers and their creations.

Owlcrate also included a letter from the author!

There was also a paper doll kit included with the book.

The Raven Cycle Series Bookmark and Patronus Lip Balm

The bookmark is by Evie Bookish and the lip balm is from Geek Fire Labs.

Lip Balm Retail Value:  $4.00

Harry Potter POP Figure from Funko

Every box received one of five Harry Potter POP figures.  I received Hermione!

She's so cute!

Retail Value:  $10.99

Throne of Glass Inspired Art Print

This is another item from Evie Bookish.  I love this art print.

Retail Value:  $12.79

A Knot in the Grain by Robin Mckinley e-book (discounted)

This was an extra item included in this month's box.  The e-book is discounted at $3.99 for Owlcrate subscribers.  I like that they included an e-book code in this box but I wish it was for a free e-book.

My Thoughts:  I really love my Owlcrate subscription.  I love that the book is always a recent release and I think the extra items included in the box are awesome.  My favorite item this month was the Hermione POP figure.  So adorable!
