It’s that time again for another unboxing! The theme for September month was Mythical Creatures. At first I thought about skipping it but then a sneak peek of an item (more on that in a bit) made me order this one and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. I love that owlcrate always provides things that are for everyday use, it’s one of the things I love about this subscription (one of the negatives- ( I can’t get a subscription without a book).
So obviously the above picture (which might be my best unboxing photo ever) really shows off everything that we got this month — including a book sleeve which I’ve heard so many good things about and it’s why I didn’t skip this subscription! Overall I was really pleased with this box, the items were really thought out and I can’t wait to start using them.
Other than the book sleeve WHICH HAS MERMAIDS on it from Book Beau, owlcrate themselves made this adorable dragon coin purse seen to your left. When I opened it I was so ecstatic, it’s going to be perfect for when I’m traveling and is just another thing from these boxes that I can take with me anywhere.
Ink and Wonder Designs made this Game of Thrones themed bookmark. What’s great about this is that it’s made out of sustainable wood AND it’s small. Most of the bookmarks that comes in boxes are larger, so for small books they don’t work. This one is going to be perfect for books like that.
Some Percy Jackson themed bath salts are up next (lower right hand corner). Honestly, I’ve never read Percy Jackson, am I missing out? These came from The Soap Librarian.
Last up (other than the usual pin) was the die-cut sticker from Susanne Draws that features Hagrid and Buckbeak! I am so tempted to stick this little guy on my computer :).
The book this month is Before She Ignites and owlcrate subscribers received an exclusive cover (gold compared to silver). Besides for the book, we got the customary signed bookplate and letter from the writer Jodie Meadows. Below is the goodreads description of the book.
Mira Minkoba is the Hopebearer. Since the day she was born, she’s been told she’s special. Important. Perfect. She’s known across the Fallen Isles not just for her beauty, but for the Mira Treaty named after her, a peace agreement which united the seven islands against their enemies on the mainland. Mira discovers an explosive secret that challenges everything she and the Treaty stand for. Betrayed by the very people she spent her life serving, Mira is sentenced to the Pit–the deadliest prison in the Fallen Isles. There, a cruel guard would do anything to discover the secret she would die to protect.
I’ll admit, this sounds pretty good and it’s a trilogy — I love reading series instead of a standalone so this help but lately I haven’t really loved the books owlcrate has provided, I’m hoping this one turns out better than some I’ve gotten in the past.
Anyway, overall this box was fantastic. I’m back in Chicago as we speak with my book sleeve and coin purse, ready to take on the city!
