This month’s theme is Strange and Unusual. 

IMG_1679

This is the spoiler card for this month. I am in love with the illustration of the card. It is so creepy and I love the black and white aspect of the card. I am not going to show you the other side because it has spoilers on it. 

img_1681.jpg

The first item in this box is a pennant flag. This item was designed by Risa Rodil and was inspired by Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. I think tis is a really fun and creative item and I will absolutely be putting this up on my reading art wall. 

IMG_1682IMG_1683

Another item that I see in this box is a Funko keychain of Eleven. I love keychains. I am so happy to have this to add to my collection. 

IMG_1684

The next item in this box are mints from Boston American Corp. I think this packaging and product is so cute and well thought out. I love how its Ouija board inspired and that the mints are actually in the shape of a Ouija board piece. 

IMG_1693

Push pins are the next item that we have in this box. This is another unique item that I find don’t come in a lot in bookish subscription boxes. I also love that they came in this vile and that there are multiple push pins. 

IMG_1689IMG_1691

Next is this gorgeous wallet designed by Reverie and Ink. This wallet is inspired by the Raven Boys quartet. I love the colours and typography of the front of the wallet. I also love how sturdy it is and you can also make it into a wristlet. 

img_1692.jpg

Then in this box is a gorgeous vinyl sticker created by TJ Lubraqno. This has the lovable Luna Lovegood on it. I love how fun and vibrant this is. 

img_1694.jpg

The final item in this month’s box before the book is this art print designed by Aun-Juli Riddle. I feel like this art print is the definition of strange and unusual and I won’t have it another way. This art print is beautiful. I love the watercolour effect of it. 

IMG_1695IMG_1712img_1696.jpgIMG_1697IMG_1698

This month’s book is MY Plain Jane by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand and Jodi Meadows. This is a retelling of Jane Eyre with ghost hunting in it. This book is also signed by the three authors. Also comes with a letter from the authors and a fun craft of Mr. Rochester’s home. 

img_1699.jpg

As always this box come with a newsletter with interviews with the authors and a shop that they worked with, as well as a sneak peak into next month’s box.

May 2018 OwlCrate Unboxing

Hello lovelies. Today’s blog post is all about this month’s OwlCrate box. Please leave me a comment below letting me know what items are your favourite from this month’s box. Hope you have a great day! 

IMG_1118IMG_1119

First as always is the spoiler card for this month’s box. This month’s theme is fight like a girl. I always love OwlCrate’s spoiler card. The artwork is always beautiful and fits the theme just right. 

img_1120.jpg IMG_1121

After that we are getting a wall hanging designed by Evie Bookish. The quote says “remember that you are a wolf and you cannot be caged”. The quote is from A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I love that the design is so well detailed yet so simplistic. 

IMG_1122 IMG_1124

Then we have a bath bomb from Whipped Up Wonderful. It smells very fruity. It is inspired by Zelie’s magic from Children of Blood and Bone. I will absolutely be using this. 

IMG_1185

Next, we have a enamel pin that says “when in doubt go to the library” in the shape of a book. This pin is inspired by none other then Hermione. It was designed by Out of Print. The quote is a saying that I live by. 

IMG_1127IMG_1126

In this box we also have a bookmark from Indigo Eleven. On one side it says “if I am marching to my death, then I will march to it as a girl without fear.”  Then on the other side it says “you are strong. Fierce. Capable beyond measure.” Both quotes are from the Wrath and the Dawn duology. I love the design of both sides of the bookmarks, the colours and flowers are beautiful and fits the season. 

IMG_1129

Then we get an art print from Melanie Bourgeois. This print is inspired by Inej from Six of Crows. This print is down right gorgeous. I feel like it needs to be framed. 

IMG_1128

In addition to the main book we have this month OwlCrate added another book to this book. This book is called Catching Stars by Cayla Keenan. It follows a powerful witch named Jayin who is trying to survive. Her paths cross with Maddix, a man wrongfully in prison and just escaped. Throughout the story they become the most unlikeliest of allies. This edition is an Owl Crate exclusive from Oftomes Publishing. 

IMG_1133IMG_1134IMG_1135

IMG_1136IMG_1132

The book for this months box is Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young. This follows Eelyn who is a Viking. She ends up face to face with her brother on the battlefield – hr brother she thought died 5 years ago.  She ends up being forced to live among a rival clan, and she discovers life altering secrets. This book is one of my most anticipated books for 2018, I am so excited. This book is also signed. With the book we also get a letter from the author and an exclusive pin. 

IMG_1137

Every month we get a pamphlet all about the behind the scenes of making this month’s box. 

IMG_1138IMG_1139

Next month’s theme is Summer Lovin’ and we will be getting an exclusive item from Riddle’s Tea Shoppe.

3. Pick a Book set in your country

IMG_1067

A book set in my country is The Lonely Hearts Hotel which is set in Canada. 

4. Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to go to. 

IMG_1068

A book that represents a destination I’d love to go to is Heidi by Johanna Spyri. This book is set in Switzerland and I would love to go there. It would be beautiful. 

5. Pick a book that has your favourite colour on it. 

IMG_1069

A book that has my favourite colour on it is How to Love by Katie Cotugno. I love this shade of blue. It is so vibrant. 

6. Which book do you have the fondest memories of? 

IMG_0987

The book that I have the fondest memories of is Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle and Brooke Carlisle. This book is about a father and daughter relationship. I remember being really little and my dad reading this book to me every night before bed. We always use to do the butterfly kisses.

7. Which book did you have the most difficulty reading? 

IMG_1070

The book that I had the most difficulty reading was Night by Elie Wiesel. I had difficulty reading this book because of the content. This book is a memoir about the author living through the Holocaust. This book is haunting, sad and beautiful. It was emotional hard to finish this book. 

8. Which book will give you the most accomplishment when you finish it? 

IMG_1071

The book that will give me the most accomplishment when I finish reading it is the Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. It will give me a sense of accomplishment because the book is massive and I am incredibly intimidated by the size.
