Hey guys! It’s time to unbox February’s Owlcrate! The theme of the month is Whimsical Beasts!
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…
If you want to 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!
Whimsical Beasts – February 2019
So this is all the box included! Now for each item…
This month’s book is Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto. 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:
I had a sister, once…
In a world ruled by fierce warrior queens, a grand empire was built upon the backs of Phoenix Riders—legendary heroes who soared through the sky on wings of fire—until a war between two sisters ripped it all apart.
I promised her the throne would not come between us.
Sixteen years later, Veronyka is a war orphan who dreams of becoming a Phoenix Rider from the stories of old. After a shocking betrayal from her controlling sister, Veronyka strikes out alone to find the Riders—even if that means disguising herself as a boy to join their ranks.
But it is a fact of life that one must kill or be killed. Rule or be ruled.
Just as Veronyka finally feels like she belongs, her sister turns up and reveals a tangled web of lies between them that will change everything. And meanwhile, the new empire has learned of the Riders’ return and intends to destroy them once and for all.
Sometimes the title of queen is given. Sometimes it must be taken.
This is the book’s beautiful cover! It’s the same design but it’s overall darker and more purply than the original. You can also see a postcard format of the map in this book and a mini feather bookmark!
Also, the book came signed, which is always a plus! And here’s also the exclusive letter from the author (in the back of the map)!
And here is a close up of this month’s enamel pin. They are based on the book of the month and this was designed by Ink and Wonder Designs. It’s so beautiful! Also, check out the sprayed edges!! They are purple and it looks amazing!
As for the other items…
We got this AMAZING graphic novel edition of The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neill! And this edition was done by Oni Press!
Plus we got a super cute keychain of Haky from Spirited Away that was designed by Four Seasons Fox (which is the cutest store ever!)! I love this and I just hope Owlcrate puts more Studio Ghibli in their boxes!! >.< PLEASE!!!!
Here’s a bit of a close up on Haku and the inside of the graphic novel! I just love this so much!! And look how gorgeous that art is!!!
Next we got this beautiful and exclusive beanie designed by Team Owlcrate and Michelle Gray! It’s of course inspired by Harry Potter and it looks stunning! I love purple and this feels and looks amazing!
We also got a super cute and unique gem soap by Leeloo Soaps. It’s called Pixie Dust and it has all kinds of good ingredients in it! It has a lot of oils like coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, soybean oil, … Plus, the glitter that is actually eco-glitter! It sounds amazing right?
But it also looks stunning as a decor so I’m not sure what to do… I guess I will keep it a bit as a decor and than use it… Look at that GEM! Love the glitter…
And the most amazing and unexpected item… A freaking travel umbrella! This was illustrated by Anne Lambelet and holy crap, it’s gorgeous!!! It’s inspired by non other than Harry Potter and all the amazing creatures in it! I can’t stop staring at it… Such a unique item!
Another overview of everything included in this box:
What did you think of this box? This was by far one of my favorite ever! I absolutely loved everything in it, but I think my favorite just has to be the umbrella… It’s just PERFECT!
