Starling House!!! I am so excited to see Starling House from Owlcrate. It's one of the few upcoming releases that I've actually been really looking forward to, but I've held off from pre-ordering in the hope that Owlcrate would come through for me. I know some people are upset that it's a duplicate with another box, but the truth of the matter is these boxes are all competing with each other, and anticipated releases are always going to be more likely to be duplicated. I can see how that would be frustrating for those with more than one subscription, but luckily Owlcrate has unlimited skips. Since Owlcrate is my only subscription box, I'm very happy they are doing an edition…

I’m glad it’s helpful! Some books I don’t really sweat as duplicates because they’re put out by different publishers in the UK and US (like Divine Rivals), but this one is Tor worldwide, so it’s a proper duplicate. 😕
