So, after loving Strange the Dreamer, I had to get the LitJoyCrate Dreams & Nightmares special edition box!
It’s my first time getting a LitJoyCrate box and I have to say, the theme couldn’t have been more perfect!
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!
Dreams & Nightmares
So this is all the box included! Now for each item…
This is the cover of Muse of Nightmares we got. It’s just a normal US cover, and it’s actually really pretty.
Here’s the synopsis:
In the wake of tragedy, neither Lazlo nor Sarai are who they were before. One a god, the other a ghost, they struggle to grasp the new boundaries of their selves as dark-minded Minya holds them hostage, intent on vengeance against Weep.
Lazlo faces an unthinkable choice—save the woman he loves, or everyone else?—while Sarai feels more helpless than ever. But is she? Sometimes, only the direst need can teach us our own depths, and Sarai, the muse of nightmares, has not yet discovered what she’s capable of.
As humans and godspawn reel in the aftermath of the citadel’s near fall, a new foe shatters their fragile hopes, and the mysteries of the Mesarthim are resurrected: Where did the gods come from, and why? What was done with thousands of children born in the citadel nursery? And most important of all, as forgotten doors are opened and new worlds revealed: Must heroes always slay monsters, or is it possible to save them instead?
Love and hate, revenge and redemption, destruction and salvation all clash in this gorgeous sequel to the New York Timesbestseller, Strange the Dreamer.
As for each item…
So, here’s the book and the back of the author’s letter as a beautiful illustration of Minya!
Also, the book came signed and here is the author’s signature! I AM SO HAPPY!! Also, that’s the exclusive letter from the author.
We got an amazing book sleeve featuring a quote from the series and it looks so beautiful! It’s the biggest I’ve seen and it’s SO soft! This was designed by BabyMyBook.
We got this amazing Lull Tea done by Adagio Tea. It smells so freaking good! The flavor is herbal vanilla honeybush, chamomile, and cornflowers.
Also, we got this enamel moth pin designed by LitJoy which is beautiful and super detailed!
Next, we got this adorable Lazlo & Sarai Notebook! It’s gorgeous and so magical! This was designed by Sandra Winther.
We got this beautiful Muse of Nightmares Charm Bracelet designed by LitJoy. It’s so cute and light to wear! I love that it’s purple and that it has not only a big charm but also those tiny ones!
Then a freaking Mugging Cake Mix! This one made me laugh. It’s just so perfect for the theme! It’s done by Shirley J and I can’t wait to try it out!
We also got a Citadel Candle that is freaking PERFECT! It smells so so so AMAZING. And the package is gorgeous! This was designed by Whiskey Diamond Candle. It smells of plum, berries, apple, pineapple, jasmine, exotic fruits, and leafy greens – and oh god, it’s the best thing I’ve ever smelled!
This is how the candle looks inside. It’s so magical that it looks like a tiny potion.
And last but not least, we got this beautiful LitJoy Collectors Trading Cards – the first row has characters we know well from the last book – Minya, Lazlo and Sarai. The down row has first Kora and then Nova. They are beautiful and were designed by Gabriella Bujdoso.
And here’s how the back looks like! Gorgeous, right?!
Another overview of everything included in this box:
What do you think of this box? My fav item has to be… the candle, because I really do love the smell of it, but the art is beautiful too and that book sleeve is just perfect! It’s a beautiful box and I’m so happy to have this book signed!
Overall this was an amazing box! Although I did wish we’d got some wearable item, like a scarf or gloves or something.
I hope you guys enjoyed this unboxing! They are always super fun to make!
