OwlCrate Unboxing!

My first OwlCrate Box! For those of you who do to know, OwlCrate is a monthly bookish subscription box and at the end of each month, a box is delivered with a few goodies inside and a new book. I ordered a six month subscription during OwlCrate's Black Friday sale so expect more in the future. This months theme was Get Inspired!
WARNING: Spoiler Alert as to what is inside this month's box!
The first thing I saw when I opened the box was a candle from Frostbeard! This candle is called Reading at the CafĂ© and it smells of coffee bean and hot chocolate! I am in love! If you follow me on twitter (@leethereader) then you know how much I love candles–especially my Winter Candy Apple candle from Bath and Body Works.
The next thing I saw was a To Do List from BoyGirlParty! AND you can get 10% off on your next purchase if you use the code: OWLCRATE
Next I saw this What I Read book from both Penguin and Chronicle Books. This is the best thing ever! I now have a little mini and physical version of my blog where I can collect all my thoughts on all the books I have read. 
I also see this cute little hand-drawn magnet by Sandra Vargas
And finally we have the book! Da Vinci's Tiger by Laura Malone Elliott. I think this book looks stunning and if I saw it in the book store I would totally pick it up.This is a historical fiction novel that takes place during the Renaissance, and follows our heroine as she discovers a world of artists, philosophers and other creatives. When se meets a young Leonardo da Vinci her life changes forever as she learns about her inner desires and creative voice. Since our protagonist loves poetry, OwlCrate has also included some fun poetry magnets! I love these things. My AP Lang teacher had these and everyday after class I would mess around with them.
I love these OwlCrate boxes and I cannot wait for January's box!

What was your favorite thing from this months's box? Leave a comment below!
Thanks Hons!
