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.
I decided to try out PageHabit for one month because I had a decent discount code. This is what I received.
The theme for August’s OwlCrate is Something Wicked This Way Comes. My box arrived today and I love everything in it.
Each month there is a card with the theme on one side and a list of everything included on the other.
These Edgar Allan Poe socks are from Out of Print.
This fountain pen is from Ody and the sticker is a This Savage Song sticker designed by Evie Bookish.
This Six of Crows bookmark was designed by Treehouse of Books and the box came with two pins this month.
The Dark Arts inspired coffee was made exclusively by Happenstance Coffee.
There was also an extra book in this month’s box. Sleepy Hollow & Other Stories published by Rock Paper Books.
This months’ book selection is The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jones. The cover is an OwlCrate exclusive.
The book came with a letter from the author and a signed bookplate.
The last item in the box is a card with next month’s theme.
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.
Exclusive Sherlock Enamel Tin Mug designed by Fictiontea Designs.
Exclusive Loki Lotion by Geeky Clean.
Hogwarts Playing Cards (love these)
Exclusive FairyLoot Fortune Telling Kitchen Glove
Exclusive Harley Quinn Print by Miss Phi
Terrible Truths Watercolour Bookmark by Lexy Olivia
July’s book is Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody.
It also came with a signed bookplate, author letter, and a little info page.
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.
The theme for July’s OwlCrate box is Wanderlust. I received my box today and wanted to share it with you.
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.)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
