Literary Heroines – My Dream Crate

Last week I was contacted by Loot Crate after they read my review on Poldark.  It’s always nice to hear that someone read AND liked one of your posts.  After seeing me gush over Poldark – and viewing my blog – they probably guessed I am a nerd and bookish!  They asked me if I would want to create my own Dream Crate and share it with my readers.  The most important part of the appeal…after sharing all the dream crates on their social media they will pick one to be an actual Crate in the future.  Someone could be getting the crate I created!  Of course I am in for the challenge.  I had a week to think about what I would put in this crate – 100% my choice on products from anywhere.  So as I looked to see what subscription boxes looked like and what I would want I came up with my theme.

LITERARY HEROINES

One thing I would NEED in my Dream Crate – and the one small luxury I allow myself – is Pop! Funkos.  My three favourite bookish heroines are Belle (Beauty and the Beast), Willow (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Hermione (Harry Potter).  Finding any one these gals in the crate would be awesome.  They may be the only ones who read more than me…but you can find us all in a library of some sort!

The next must-have items are of course books, and what are two books that encompass literary heroines but, Anne of Green Gables (Lucy Maud Montgomery) and Little Women (Louisa May Alcott).  Either book would be welcomed into my library:

When I am deep in my reading mode I usually have a cup of tea beside me.  I cannot just have an ordinary mug, of course, but a Jane Austen’s heroines mugs:

As I am sipping my tea and enjoying the warmth, it would be lovely to have one of these, Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte), Anne of Green Gables or Little Women scarf (Storiats):

When my tea finishes, and I need to put the kettle on, I need a bookmark to keep my place:

A nice journal to keep all my thoughts on my reading and books:

Lastly, one must have a tote to keep your books, journal, and scarf with you (Out of Print):

I have not used Loot Crate, and to be honest until I was approached I had not heard of them.  As I perused on their site, it has some great boxes and subscriptions! It is also great for gifts – have a geek/nerd in your life bit have no clue where to start let Loot Crate figure it out, lol.

Any questions about Loot Crate please visit them on their Help page! Any questions on the product above, please email me and I will let you know where to contact them.

Happy Reading!
