OwlCrate Unboxing

OwlCrate Unboxing – August 2017

Hi everyone!

I just got this month’s OwlCrate box in the mail and oh my gosh, I’m in love! This was easily one of the best boxes we’ve gotten yet! If you want your own OwlCrate box, you can subscribe by clicking here. Single boxes and past boxes also available on the website (more details at the bottom of the post!).

If you’d rather watch the unboxing, you can check out my YouTube video here:


This is definitely one of my favorite themes for this year. Without further ado, let’s get into it.

The contents of this month’s box were:


2017-08-25-14-50-27.png🦉Edgar Allen Poe Poe-ka Dot socks from Out of Print. I love this brand so much! I get my sister Out of Print socks every year for Christmas and am thrilled to have a pair of my own.


2017-08-25-14-50-12.png🦇 Dark Arts coffee by @happenstancecoffee. The death before decaf note made me laugh so hard. This was our Harry Potter item for this month.


2017-08-25-14-48-41.png💀 A fountain pen from @weareooly and oh my gosh I completely freaked out when we got this (shameless plug, you can watch my full unboxing on to see that reaction). I love fountain pens, I love purple, and I can’t wait to see how it writes!


🦇A gorgeous sticker designed by @eviebookish inspired by VE Schwab’s Monster of Verity duology.

2017-08-25 15.06.23🦉We also got a STUNNING bookmark by @treehouseofbooks inspired by Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.


2017-08-25-14-52-07.png🦇 OwlCrate also revealed that we were getting a second book from @rockpaperbooks. The book is a gorgeous edition of Sleepy Hallow and Other Short Stories by Washing Irving. Sleepy Hallow is one of my favorites and I’m so thrilled I have this lovely book!


2017-08-25-14-52-36.png2017-08-25-14-54-03.png💀The last items in the box were related to this month’s book: The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jones. I know nothing about this book, by the synopsis sounds super interesting. I hope this one is good! We also got a letter from the author, a signed bookplate, and a lapel pin.

🐲Book Prediction!🐲

One thing I love to do is to try to guess the book for the following month.

September’s theme is Mythical Creatures!

Like the past few months, I have no clue what the book is going to be. Maybe Odd & True by Cat Winters (although there doesn’t seem to be a dragon in this one like OwlCrate hinted). Yeah, I don’t know.

What do you think the book is going to be? Let me know in the comments!
