Hey guys! Here’s the unboxing for Owlcrate October’s box! Hope you enjoy! The theme of the month is Wield Your Blade!
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!
Wield Your Blade – October 2021
So this is all the box included! Now for each item…
This month’s book is Jade Fire Gold by June C.L. Tan. 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 an empire on the brink of war…
Ahn is no one, with no past and no family.
Altan is a lost heir, his future stolen away as a child.
When they meet, Altan sees in Ahn a path to reclaiming the throne. Ahn sees a way to finally unlock her past and understand her arcane magical abilities.
But they may have to pay a far deadlier price than either could have imagined.
Ferocious action, shadowy intrigue, and a captivating romance collide in June CL Tan’s debut, a stunning homage to the Xianxia novel with a tender, beating heart, perfect for fans of The Bone Witch and We Hunt the Flame.
This is the book’s beautiful cover! It’s a similar design but in a different color.
The book came signed, which is always a plus!
The art in the reverse of the dust jacket is amazing and was designed by Kim Ekdahl.
This is the new enamel pin based on the book and created by Icey Designs! I love every pin they include in the boxes!!
As for the other items…
We got an acrylic display designed by Sakura Inked and inspired by Lord of the Rings! *the display is inverted in this photo, sorry! But you can read it in the next one!
Here is the full text! Looks really cool, right?
Here’s the amazing sewing kit we got! Designed by Stella Bookish Art and inspired by Spin the Dawn!
Next we got a 300pc jigsaw puzzle! This was based on The Raven Cycle & Call Down the Hawk featuring Hennessy and Ronan! Designed by Dri Gomez!
And lastly we got a print of Rey and Kylo Ren from Star Wars designed by Jemlin.
The November theme is…
Dreaming in the Dark
🖤 Our September book is an atmospheric gothic fantasy about a girl forced to live at a haunted estate. She’s heard many stories
🌙 Our November book is a highly anticipated fantasy release about dueling magicians, ancient magical curses, and nightmares that come to life every new moon. We were absolutely enchanted with this story from beginning to end!
🌙 We will be including a beautiful exclusive edition of the book which will feature a completely re-designed exclusive cover, a reversible dust jacket, and an exclusive foil design on the hardcover case! Every book will also be signed and come with a letter from the author!
🌙 We’ll be revealing the amazing artists we worked with for both the front and back of the jacket very soon!
🌙 Items included will be inspired by Strange the Dreamer, A Court of Thorns and Roses, The Bone Season, as well as a much beloved annual item that isn’t inspired by a fandom…any guesses? We’ll be sharing more info soon!
🌙 This box will also contain the fourth and final A Darker Shade of Magic inspired book tin in our collection with @forensicsandflowers!
🌙 We are so excited for this box! It’s so aesthetic and filled with beautiful and useful items. And the design of our November book is to die for! This is definitely not a box you want to miss.
