Hey guys! It’s time for another Owlcrate unboxing!!
July’s box theme is Strange & Unusual and it’s better than I expected!
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’ve been loving every single box, and I loved the theme of this one but it was even better than I expected! It’s so well themed and balanced!
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!
Strange & Unusual – July 2018
So this is all the box included! Now for each item…
This month’s book is My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. The cover that came is an exclusive Owlcrate edition that you can see better in the photo below and the one on the left is the original one.
Here’s the synopsis:
You may think you know the story. After a miserable childhood, penniless orphan Jane Eyre embarks on a new life as a governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she meets one dark, brooding Mr. Rochester. Despite their significant age gap (!) and his uneven temper (!!), they fall in love—and, Reader, she marries him. (!!!)
Or does she?
Prepare for an adventure of Gothic proportions, in which all is not as it seems, a certain gentleman is hiding more than skeletons in his closets, and one orphan Jane Eyre, aspiring author Charlotte Brontë, and supernatural investigator Alexander Blackwood are about to be drawn together on the most epic ghost hunt this side of Wuthering Heights.
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!
Here are the three signatures from the authors! I couldn’t feel any happier to see them! We also got an awesome and super unique paper craft inspired by Mr. Rochecter’s eerie home! It’s seriously so cute! I absolutely loved it and already put it on my bookshelf. You can check out how it turned out in the next photo!
This is how the inside looks like, isn’t it gorgeous?! It really transports me to Jane Eyre! It’s so detailed and such a unique idea!
Next, we got some super cool Ouija mints from Boston America Corp! I absolutely love how detailed these are. The tin is gorgeous and the mints are the tiny ouija planchettes! It’s so unique!
We also got the most amazing art print ever, designed by Aun-Juli Riddle! I always love her art and this one is just one more that I love… She is so freaking talented, I mean, just look at that!!
Also, we got a super cute pennant flag inspired by Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and designed by Risa Rodil. It’s super pretty, and for sure it’s the first time I got one of these!
You can see this month’s button in the photo too! Isn’t it spooky?!
We got a freaking amazingly adorable vinyl sticker inspired by Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter and it’s SO SO PRETTY!! I love the colors and how detailed and cute it looks, also the texture is super smooth! It’s just perfect and it was designed b TJ Lubrano.
Also, we got some really cute and Tetris-like push pins that are tiny skulls. They are super cute and handy and were created by Team Owlcrate!
It also included a Stranger Things keychain from Funko, which is my first ever! You could get either Eleven or Dustin, and I have both as normal Funko Pops, but as a keychain, I did prefer Eleven, so I’m super happy I got it!
But one of the most amazing things and one I was excited about because I love The Raven Boys, was the wallet inspired by that series designed by Reverie and Ink! It’s super useful and pretty and it says “The head is too wise. The Heart is all fire.” You can see how it is inside in the photo below!
This is all we got in July’s box and I also have to say that I’m a huge fan of this month’s spoiler card’s art! It’s spooky-ly awesome, right?!
Another overview of everything included in this box:
This box was awesome, but my fav items have to be the art print, it’s just so freaking beautiful! I love the colors and how weird and peculiar it looks! I also loved the Luna Lovegood sticker, which is the cutest thing ever, and the most surprising item had to be the wallet! It’s just so useful, and I can’t wait to use it!
The next month’s theme will be…
The card theme with a sneak peek for the next month is gorgeous and the theme is…
👑 Would you survive if you were thrust into a devious royal court? Our August box is all about royals who rule and win; no matter the cost.
👑 Our book pick is an intense story about two sisters who are thrown into a world of court politics, brutal competition and fierce rulers. When they are separated from one another, each girl must figure out unique ways to survive. We will be including an incredible exclusive edition of the book (very different from the original), which is signed by the author!
👑 There will also be beautiful items inspired by The Belles, Throne of Glass, Disney and more! There is also a special item inspired by The Cruel Prince that we know you guys are going to freak out over! It’s gorgeous, and something we’ve never included before.
👑 If you love intriguing fantasy stories set in dark palaces, this is the box for you! It will be available around July 22nd (or sooner if we sell out of July boxes early). Stay tuned for our announcement when it’s officially for sale!
👑 It’s been over two years since we did a box themed around royalty and we are so excited about it. We hope you are too!
