May Owlcrate Unboxing (Spoilers)

owlcrate book box
Hey guys, yes this unboxing is super late.  I meant to get it up last month but it just didn’t happen but I still wanted to do my regular Owlcrate Unboxing and thoughts.  May’s theme was Epic Adventures.

OC3 (1)

A quick overview of all the items in the box – everything matches pretty nicely, not that I see them all together like this.

We Hunt the Flame Signed Owlcrate Exclusive by Hafsah Faizal – I was very happy that this book was chosen for Owlcrate.  I follow this author on Twitter and she’s so lovely and completely hilarious.  I’ve been really looking forward to this book, can’t wait to dig in.  The exclusive cover was a very subtle change this month – it was the font being changed from silver to gold.  I kind of like how subtle it is.  I can’t make up my mind which one I like better – but they are both lovely.

 

Darker Shade of Magic Pillowcase – Probably my favorite item this month.  I really like that it’s a full pillowcase because those will always get used and this one is gorgeous.  Love anything Schwab related.

A Court of Mist and Fury Eye Mask – Meh, I was kind of hoping for something cool because we actually don’t get that many ACOTAR items from OC.  The eye mask is really nice quality and super soft, like sliky but I’m not sure how much I’ll wear it.  We’ll see.

Neil Gaiman Glass Bottle – So, I guess this is for drinking out of but quite a few people have shown pictures of this breaking from various things.  I think it’s a cute little bottle – I’ll probably use it for decoration – maybe get some decorative sand or something to put in it and stick it on a shelf.

 

We Hunt the Flame Double Sided Print – There aren’t actually two prints – it’s double-sided, but I wanted to show the stunning artwork of both sides.  I haven’t decided which side i’ll display, depends on which character I’m more drawn to I guess.

Howl’s Moving Castle Sticker – Adorable but a little bit of a let down.  It’s like when they announced there would be a Spirited Away item and it ended up being a cute, but small keychain.  I love Studio Ghibli (and the original story), so I would’ve liked a cooler item but still cute.

We Hunt the Flame Enamel Pin – One of the prettiest ones we’ve gotten and what is extra cool about this is the author has her own Etsy shop, so she designed this pin.  Makes is even more special.

The Hobbit Passport Holder – It’s very nice quality and cute, but I don’t really have a need for it.  I passed it on to my dad, who loves it so that worked out well.

Overall thoughts? The items are all high quality and the value is still there but it wasn’t my favorite box.  They usually do a travel/adventures type box every year and it’s usually one of my least favorites – just because of the types of things I use.  I still really like lots of the items though and the book looks incredible.

      1. That made me laugh out loud. My bff has everything neutral. Blacks, grays, and browns. But she has an obsession with buying all kinds of pillow cases. Even the older looking tacky ones. It cracks me up. But I get it. I love changing out my pillow cases, so the book ones are awesome even though they don’t match my colors.

  1. I loved seeing your thoughts on all of the items in this box! And I loved seeing all of the items! I’ve been dying to read We Hunt the Flame very soon and those character prints are sooo gorgeous! And i agree that Hafsah Faizal is a gem on twitter and it’s amazing that she’s also a designer!
