The theme for August’s FairyLoot box was Otherworlds.  If you haven’t checked them out yet, FairyLoot  is awesome.   I was only going to buy two months to try, but I think I’ve purchased four months already.  They just all sound so good.

July FairyLoot unboxing and other fun things that came in the mail today.

Back from my weekend away and found some exciting things in my mail today!

I received my first ever FairyLoot box.  The theme for July was Tricksters.  I figured out the book awhile back and was really looking forward to receiving it.

The second package I received today was from author K.C. Tansley. I will have to take another picture later because I missed the handwritten notes, bookmarks, and stickers that were inside the books.  I received two books.  The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts and an ARC of The Girl Who Saved Ghosts.  I can’t wait to read them both and get my reviews up here (hopefully with the next couple weeks). She sent a nice thank you card, bracelet, pen, and lighted keychain. This is definitely one of the best packages I’ve received and I can’t thank her enough.

My last package today was an order from Books of Wonder in New York.  I ordered two signed books from them and was waiting on the pre-ordered book to release and get signed.  I didn’t realize it would be personalized, so I need to remember for future purchases to add a note with the name I go by vs my full name.  But I’m super excited to have both of these books.  Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh and Little Monsters by Kara Thomas.

What a great welcome home!  I’m working on my Make Me Read It bookathon right now.  I should finish Geekerella today.  I’ll also be continuing with my ARC August reads and will have some updates soon.  

July 2017 OwlCrate Box

The theme for July’s OwlCrate box is Wanderlust.  I received my box today and wanted to share it with you.

DSC_0012

There is always a card inside that has the theme with picture on one side and a list of everything in the box on the other side.  I didn’t take an individual picture of that.  The box also comes with a card that gives a sneak peek of next month’s box. 

The first thing in the box was an Owlcrate exclusive backpack inspired by The Lord of the Rings.

The next item is an owl luggage tag created by Mudpuppy.  (This is also in the Owlcrate Jr box this month.)

DSC_0018

This month had an adorable Newt Scamander keychain by Funko.  This was especially cool for me since I recently found out that I’m a Hufflepuff. 

DSC_0020

I was really excited to find out that there was something inspired by A Darker Shade of Magic.  This is a pocket mirror designed by Miss Phi.

DSC_0013

One of my favorite items in this box is this gorgeous art print designed by Shailey Ann Designs.  It’s inspired by Looking For Alaska.

Another cute item included in this box is this pocket journal from Ooly.  There were 8 different styles sent out.  Which one did you get?  Comment below.

As always, there is a pin that comes in each box.

Finally there is the book.  This month’s selection is The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice And Virtue by Mackenzi Lee.  The cover is an Owlcrate exclusive.  The book came with a letter from the author, a signed book plate, and a beautiful map.

DSC_0023

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is about a young lord, his best friend, and sister. They go on a road trip through 18th century Europe.  Everything I’ve heard about this book so far has been really positive.  The most common comment I’ve read is that it’s laugh out loud funny.  I’m really looking forward to reading it.  I put off purchasing it since I was pretty sure it was this month’s book choice. 

DSC_0024

This was my second month for my OwlCrate subscription and I can’t say enough good things about them.  The book choices have been good, they send a ton of great bookish items, and the box arrives quickly.

Next month’s theme is Something Wicked This Way Comes.  If you’d like to subscribe, please click on my referral link here.  https://owlcrate.com/refer/Krist-KDSWOMHL
