Hey guys! Time for another Owlcrate unboxing!!
September’s box theme is Masters of Disguise and it’s one I couldn’t pass out on buying!
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…
The main reason I got this box has to be because of the Harry Potter mug designed by Cara Kozik! She designed one previously that was amazing but I couldn’t get it, so I needed this one!
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!
Masters of Disguise – September 2018
So this is all the box included! Now for each item…
This month’s book is Mirage by Somaiya Daud. 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.
Here’s the synopsis:
In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation; she dreams of writing poetry like the old-world poems she adores; she dreams of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventure, and travel beyond her isolated moon.
But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped by the regime and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double, someone to appear in public as Maram, ready to die in her place.
As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty—and her time with the princess’ fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection…because one wrong move could lead to her death.
As for each item…
This is the book’s beautiful cover! It’s so mystical and striking! I love it! The original for what I can tell is purple and this one is kind of a deep blue. You can also see the exclusive letter from the author they sent in the photo.
Here is the beautiful designed under the dust jacket! It’s always so nice to take it out and discover something awesome under!
Also, the book came signed and here is the author’s signature!
These are some amazingly exclusive fingerless gloves! It’s inspired by Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and they were created by Team Owlcrate! They are super cozy and pretty with a tiny crow as a detail and the classic Owlcrate logo on the other side. Also, I love that they are super fitted and not itchy!
We also got a mini gold nail polish promoting Grim Lovelies!
Next, we got some foaming bath soaks inspired by The Diabolic. This was created by Leeloo Soaps and it’s purple with thin glitter in it! It’s gorgeous and kind of smells grapefruity.
We also got an exclusive apple peppermint lip balm! It’s inspired by The Kiss of Deception and it was created by GeekFireLabs and Owlcrate. It tastes fantastic!
We got this exclusive art print of Lila Bard from the Shades of Magic trilogy and it was designed by Kirsty Carter. I freaking love her jacket!
Next, we have a FREAKING AMAZING ceramic mug! This one is inspired by Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and it was designed by Cara Kozik. It’s beautiful and super big!
Here’s another view of it! Isn’t it gorgeous?!
Another overview of everything included in this box:
What do you think? My fav item has to be the mug, which is the reason why I got this box in the first place! I also really liked the gloves and the lip balm tho!
The next month’s theme will be…
