Owlcrate Box: June 2017

This month’s theme was “Make it Out Alive” and the box is packed with survival-themed goodies (and very green). Since dystopian societies are my favorite thing to read, I’m in love with pretty much everything.

and, TWO new books (usually it’s only one):

  1. World New Rising by Jennifer Wilson

Goodreads Summary: Since witnessing her parents’ murders at the age of eleven, Phoenix’s only purpose in life has been to uphold her mother’s dying words- to be strong and survive. But surviving outside of The Walls- outside of The Sanctuary- is more like a drawn-out death sentence. A cruel and ruthless city, Tartarus is run by the Tribes whose motto is simple, “Join or die.” Refusing to join and determined to live, Phoenix fights to survive in this savage world. But who can she trust, when no one can be trusted? Not even herself. 

  1. The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson

Goodreads summary: When all hope is gone, how do you survive? Before the war, Eden’s life was easy- air conditioning, ice cream, long days at the beach. Then the revolution happened, and everything changed. Now a powerful group called the Wolfpack controls the earth and its resources. Eden has lost everything to them. They killed her family and her friends, destroyed her home, and imprisoned her. But Eden refuses to die by their hands. She knows the coordinates to the only neutral ground left in the world, a place called Sanctuary Island, and she is desperate ti escape to its shores. Eden finally reaches the island and meets others resistant to the Wolves- but the solace is short-lived when one of Eden’s new friends goes missing. Braving the jungle in search of their lost ally, they quickly discover Sanctuary Island is filled with lethal traps and an enemy they never expected. The island might be deadlier than the world Eden left behind, but surviving it is the only thing that stands between her and freedom.
