Hey guys! It’s time for another Owlcrate unboxing!! I’m so excited >.<
June’s box theme is Summer Lovin’ and it couldn’t have been more summery!
Owlcrate is an amazing YA bookish subscription box that I would highly recommend getting. Plus, if you live in Europe like me, it still arrives incredibly fast and somehow (for me) it doesn’t get more expensive than any other box coming from Europe – although obviously, it changes from country to country…
I was sure of the book coming in this box and that’s what made me go for it, but I never imagined this box was going to be this cute! It’s so incredibly summery and beautiful! Full of color and useful items!
If you wanna check out what this box included, just keep reading! I will show photos of all the items, information on them and some of my thoughts!
Summer Lovin’ – June 2018
So this is all the box included! Isn’t it gorgeous?! Now for each item…
This month’s book is From Twinkle, with Love by Sandhya Menon. The cover that came is an exclusive Owlcrate edition that you can see in the photo below and the one on the left is the original one. The exclusive has a LOT of changes including the back cover!
Here’s the synopsis:
Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories she wants to tell and universes she wants to explore, if only the world would listen. So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dream come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy—a.k.a. Sahil’s twin brother? Dream come true x 2.
When mystery man “N” begins emailing her, Twinkle is sure it’s Neil, finally ready to begin their happily-ever-after. The only slightly inconvenient problem is that, in the course of movie-making, she’s fallen madly in love with the irresistibly adorkable Sahil.
Twinkle soon realizes that resistance is futile: The romance she’s got is not the one she’s scripted. But will it be enough?
Told through the letters Twinkle writes to her favorite female filmmakers, From Twinkle, with Love navigates big truths about friendship, family, and the unexpected places love can find you.
As for each item…
This is the book’s beautiful cover and with it, we got a letter from the author. Also, the book is signed which you can see in the photo below! We also got an adorable exclusive keychain that says “From Twinkle, with Love” and it’s an incredibly fitting popcorn box!
Here’s the signed page, and look at that beautiful page! Also, the book’s hardcover is yellow as you might have noticed and it’s gorgeous, while the original one is pink.
Also, here’s the back cover, since apparently, the whole book design is different! Cover, back cover, and even book flaps!
Next, we got a beautiful and totally summery exclusive mason jar mug! This was designed by Michelle Gray and Team Owlcrate! It’s perfect for summer drinks, be it juice, tea or iced coffee because you can actually close it! It’s beautiful with a gradient of color from transparent to orange and it says “Book Worm and Proud”! Isn’t it gorgeous?! You can also see it in the next photo, as well as the box that it came in!
The box is extremely cute and it contains a quote from The Summer I Turned Pretty by Janne Han – ” My whole life was measured in summers.” Plus, it says that it’s safe to put the mug both in the dishwasher and the microwave (just don’t forget to take the “bottle” cap! :P).
Also, we got a super cute pen with a freaking cactus!! I ADORE cactuses! Check it out with more detail in the photo below!
This cactus pen is from BC Mini and it’s incredibly adorable! I love the colors and it writes actually really well and fine! Plus it says “Sunny Day”… It couldn’t be more perfect for this box! The cactuses are random, I’ve seen grey, green and blue ones (all with the same phrase), but I’m super happy I got the yellow one, it’s just so bright and fun!
We also got an amazing tea package as we were expecting, from Riddle’s Tea Shoppe! This one is summer apple and peach flavor, which sounds absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to try it out! Owlcrate selected this blend, being inspired by Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson, I haven’t read the book so I don’t really know the connection, but I’m happy with the flavor! Plus look at the gorgeous design!! Also, the tea is vegan-friendly!
In the photo, you can also see an exclusive Wooden Bookmark designed by Ink and Wonder Designs! It features artwork inspired by Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz, and it’s beautiful! I love the summery colors and the overall design, plus the quote is actually really pretty “Summer was a book of hope”.
And also, you can see this month’s button in the photo! I really like the color and idea of it!
And finally, for my favorite item of the lot, we have an incredible and exclusive microfiber towel designed by Stella Bookish Art! I always love her art but this one is incredible! It’s SO summery, colorful and bookish! it’s perfect!! “My Summer is all booked” is the perfect quote for a towel and to be honest, I never thought any bookish box would include one! It’s just so unique and perfect for the theme!
Another overview of everything included in this box:
This box was an ABSOLUTE FAVORITE! I’m super happy I got it and that the book was signed because it’s always difficult for me to get my hands on those! Everything in this box was perfect and so well put together!! But my favorite item has to be the towel… I mean, I never imagined a towel would come, it’s just WOW!
The next month’s theme will be…
The card theme with a sneak peek for the next month is gorgeous and the theme is…
