Hey guys! Here’s the unboxing for Owlcrate September’s box! Hope you enjoy! The theme of the month is Haunted Hearts!
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!
Haunted Hearts – September 2021
So this is all the box included! Now for each item…
This month’s book is Lakesedge by Lyndall Clipstone. 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:
A lush gothic fantasy about monsters and magic, set on the banks of a cursed lake. Perfect for fans of Naomi Novik and Brigid Kemmerer.
There are monsters in the world.
When Violeta Graceling arrives at haunted Lakesedge estate, she expects to find a monster. She knows the terrifying rumors about Rowan Sylvanan, who drowned his entire family when he was a boy. But neither the estate nor the monster are what they seem.
There are monsters in the woods.
As Leta falls for Rowan, she discovers he is bound to the Lord Under, the sinister death god lurking in the black waters of the lake. A creature to whom Leta is inexplicably drawn…
There’s a monster in the shadows, and now it knows my name.
Now, to save Rowan—and herself—Leta must confront the darkness in her past, including unraveling the mystery of her connection to the Lord Under.
This is the book’s beautiful cover! It’s completely re-done and has no dust jacket!
The book came signed, and here’s the author’s note!
As for the other items…
Next we got a super different item – magnetic picture frames! They were designed by Riddle & Ravens and inspired by The Beautiful and Shadows Between Us!
Here’s some beautiful coasters designed by Lichen and Limestone! In order, they were inspired by Pablo Neruda, Jane Austen, Crimson Peak and The Vampire Diaries.
Here’s another view at the kit in the little stand included! Looks awesome!
Lastly we got a ceramic travel mug with a quote from Emily Brontë and designed by Macarena Chomik.
Here’s another view. And you can see the protection (since we don’t want to burn ourselves) on the side too… just needs to be slipped on.
The October theme is…
