Unboxing | OwlCrate | November Box 2019

Another OwlCrate box but this time it is their monthly subscription box. Today I’m unboxing the November box.

Such a beautiful wood…bookmark or ornament? Well it’s an ornament now because my daughter added to our tree! 😂 I love the details on it.

Okay THIS is definitely a bookmark, a metal one with all this beautiful purple and black design. So pretty!

Another gorgeous collector’s pin. Lovely!

Super cute stickers I was going to use in the reading planner…but my daughter only took a few of them haha. I love the color palette!

My first reading planner and it’s so pretty! I love how you can start with any month and it has a section on the weekly pages where you can note down how many pages your read that day…but I never keep track of that. But cool if you do! I love the Book Reviews pages where you can write mini-reviews, that could definitely help me keep track of books I need to review. It also has a section for Favorite Quotes! Yay, I want to start collecting quotes but I get lazy about it. So hopefully this will help me. There is a Book Wishlist page and a Monthly TBR as well. I’m so excited to try this out!

They fit this blanket into that small box!! Like…what? I am so impressed with whoever packs their boxes. I need to take lessons. But the colors and design on this is gorgeous, and it’s only of my favorite fandoms so I am in love with it. My kids love it too because it’s soft and they kept rolling on top of it haha.

And the book!!! It’s gorgeous but I think I like the original black cover I’ve seen. This one is pretty too but I love a black background for anything thing with moons and stars. This edition is signed and I look forward to finally reading this book!

I love this box just for the book, blanket and reading planner alone. I don’t have another OwlCrate box coming after this because I went overboard on boxes for November. I am still waiting on The Bookish Box crate and Shelflove Crate. I hope we get some exciting book choices for 2020 because I have to say OwlCrate is hands down my favorite book crate subscription. They are good with communicating on their instagram account about box updates and reveals. Their boxes ship on time and gets to me quick! I love everything so far about their company.

I hope you enjoy these unboxing and stay tuned for more to come!


Unboxing | Owl Crate | The Queen of Nothing | Faerie Dwelling Box

Yes I am obsessed with The Folk of Air series by Holly Black, so in addition to buying the boxed set on Barnes & Noble, I ordered this custom box on OwlCrate. I can’t believe how much this little box packs in! Let’s see what was inside:

All of this was in this small box! Isn’t that awesome?

This OwlCrate version has this white cover, but naked, it’s a black book. The B&N version I have is a black cover, but naked, it’s a white book. I do think the original white cover being sold everywhere else is the prettiest cover because you can see the snake detail and crown. This one is okay but this is a signed copy which is awesome!

I love all the quotes that are printed on the items in the box. This is a little jewelry dish, perfect for rings or earrings.

And I love these coasters! I love the fonts, color and design – really beautiful.

Here’s a cute little mug and three decorative spoons! If I had a proper bookcase these would be featured on it but really, I have no space on my small bookshelf. Still, really cute items.

Here is a tray with another quote and beautiful design. I’d use THIS as my coaster or at least it’s big enough to hold a cup and maybe some snacks while I sit at my desk and type up my blog posts.

Decorative pins with lovely detail – what do you do with pins? I have a collection of them now from all these box crates but I don’t use them for anything. But they are super cute!

Aw, and star lights which I can use in my daughter’s room or since it’s Christmas time I can use it somewhere.

We have two print cards here and as you can see of the photo on the right, when you tilt the card a certain way it has this design where the print sparkles with color. So beautiful!

I’m listening to this right now and I’m totally feeling it! It’s a playlist for Jude & Cardan! 😍

I am so in love with this quote. Love love love this and I don’t know where to hang it up yet…I wish I had my own library at home that I could decorate at will haha, but alas I do not.

And that’s what was in my Faerie Dwelling Box by OwlCrate. I love it and I do have to say one of my favorite subscription boxes so far is OwlCrate – they are super organized and so far their boxes haven’t disappointed. I have another box coming tomorrow, their November box and I can’t wait to open it up!

Unboxing | OwlCrate | September 2019 Box

I received by second OwlCrate box and I love it! The theme for September is called Fear the Night which is perfect since Halloween is around the corner. So let’s look at what I got!

So many goodies!

An excerpt of The Beautiful and this card with beautiful artwork.

Coffee in the flavor of Scare-Amel Corn from Bones Coffee! It smells so good, but I may be gifting this to some coffee lovers I know. I love coffee too – but usually the icy blended kine. 😂

Fingerless gloves, SO freaking cute! A jewelry dish that says “Beware for I am Fearless & Therefore Powerful” – Mary Shelley. And a pin!

A close up of the pin and it’s amazing details. Beautiful!

I had two books in the box, yes TWO! This is a paperback of The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson and it already looks scary. I mean, look at that cover…👀

And last but not least, this GORGEOUS signed copy of The Bone Houses, with a note from the author and this bookmark! This white cover is lovely but I kind of want a black copy to compare haha. I love the design of that skull so much. I can’t wait to read this book.

I think this was a pretty good box and I can gift a few things away, which is always convenient – I already have some of my Xmas shopping done because of these boxes haha. I am skipping next month’s OwlCrate because I’m not a big sci-fi fan, but I will be trying a new box hopefully.

Unboxing | Owl Crate | August 2019 Box

I’ve been dying to try Owl Crate for months now but I was waiting for a featured book I wanted to own and when I saw that the book for August was House of Salt and Sorrows, I bought it. I got the box last weekend and I was not disappointed!

This is what was in the box:

Just the theme alone I’m so in love with! I am an island girl and love all things ocean and the octopus? Love those tentacled creatures! The pin, bath salts, tea, wooden book mark and pencil case are so lovely! And that lantern? 😍 I’ll be using it as a prop for my bookstagram photos. I’m going to gift a few things but I’m definitely keeping the lantern and book. Isn’t it beautiful? This was a great box, glad I got it!

Now I’m looking forward to the September box and all the Halloween themed items coming! Love this box and I will definitely keep this subscription for now. Stay tuned for the next unboxing! 😘

Have you read the book House of Salt and Sorrow? What did you think? I’ll post my review once I get to reading it!
