Summer Lovin’ \\ June Owlcrate Unboxing

My unboxing is finally up on time!

That’s the first time in, like, four months. Let’s hope it stays this way.

Anyway, the June Owlcrate box was themed around summer! And, as everyone in the book community knows, summer = contemporary books. So naturally a lot of the items were themed around the fav contemporaries from the community!

Let’s unbox:

Fight Like a Girl \\ May Owlcrate Unboxing

This post is up a bit late. That’s an understatement…soz

But better late than never! Plus I figured at this point everyone who is subscribed got their boxes so I don’t have to worry too much about spoilers or anything.

The May box is themed around Vikings and strong women, which I’m obviously here for! Well, I’m more 50\50 on the Vikings – you all know how I feel about Norse mythology and all. Anyway – let’s open the box!

Owlcrate Unboxing \\ Hidden Worlds

February Theme: Hidden Worlds

The February box was all about magical – and sometimes dangerous – worlds. It’s a good box for those who like stories like Alice in Wonderland and Coraline. I loved the January box, but I didn’t know what to expect from this one?

I just kind of forgot about it until it showed up in the mail. And it 100% exceeded ANY expectations I had.

Items and book included:

January Theme: Fearsome Fairy Tales

The January box is themed around Grimms fairy tales and dark faeries!

I was so excited for this box! I had guessed the book beforehand, and it was one that I had been anticipating for months! Plus, as you probably already know, I love Grimms fairy tales, and just fairy tales\old stories in general. So naturally I couldn’t wait for my box to get here!

So let’s open it! I’m so excited I feel the need to use more exclamation marks than grammatically necessary!!

Fairyloot Unboxing | July ’17

DSCN5868

July Theme: Tricksters

This box is themed around all things evil and mischievous!

For those of you who don’t know, Fairyloot is a YA subscription box themed entirely around fantasy! It ships from the UK, which ends up being expensive for those of us in the US (…which is why this is my first Fairyloot box).

Spoilers!


DSCN5812

This is the card with spoilers (which I save until last), and the matching bookmark.

I love this artwork! Fairyloot always has really cool art. I want to say this is Inej, but it might just be some random person.

The first thing out of this box was my favorite! This is a Sherlock-themed mug!

It says “I have to go to my Mind Palace”

Made by Fictiontea Designs


Fairyloot.Loki.jpg

This is body lotion themed after Loki (vegan and, ironically, cruelty free).

I don’t think I’ve ever gotten body lotion in a book box before – it was a pleasantly weird surprise!

Made by Geeky Clean


DSCN5778

This is the coolest thing ever – it’s Hogwarts playing cards! This is an officially licensed item, which means it’s not fan-made.

I’m a Gryffindor, personally.


DSCN5831

Again, I don’t think I’ve ever gotten an oven mit in a book box.

It’s themed around the book of the month (which I’ll get to).


DSCN5821

This is probably my favorite art print I’ve ever gotten – It’s a quote from Harley Quinn.

It says “It doesn’t matter who broke you down. What matters is who made you smile again.”

This is amazing – it’s a Six of Crows bookmark! I love the feather on the back!

Goodreads Page

Sixteen-year-old Sorina has spent most of her life within the borders of the Gomorrah Festival. Yet even among the many unusual members of the traveling circus-city, Sorina stands apart as the only illusion-worker born in hundreds of years. This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all their own. Her creations are her family, and together they make up the cast of the Festival’s Freak Show.

But no matter how lifelike they may seem, her illusions are still just that—illusions. Or so she always believed…until one of them is murdered.

Sorina must track down the culprit and determine how they killed a person who doesn’t actually exist. Her search for answers leads her to the self-proclaimed gossip-worker Luca, and their investigation sends them through a haze of political turmoil and forbidden romance. But as the killer continues murdering Sorina’s illusions one by one, she must unravel the horrifying truth.

I saw this book awhile ago, and I was really intrigued by it! I’m excited to start it and see what I think!
