I’ve been scheduling posts in the past week as I’m writing this on last two days of August, I really missed blogging like this. I was busy in the past two months working on a project at my work place and because of that I didn’t have time to focus on my blog as before so my posting times were a bit inconsistent, I’m planning to get right back to a posting schedule and hopefully commit to it. Anyway to the main point of this post, OwlCrate my favorite subscription box. This month the theme was quite interesting and I was hoping it would be as good as Darkness box.
Dark Arts Roast by Happenstance Coffee
I think this is the first time OwlCrate sends coffee in their boxes and let me just take my time to admire the packaging. I’m a Harry Potter fan so this definitely excited me, it’s a medium blend roast of orange, almond and dark chocolate. I posted on my Snapchat about it and a friend almost begged me for it so I gave it to him.
Ooly Fountain Pen
My handwriting is bad and according to my mother “Like a chicken passing on a paper” because it’s too tiny, well as long as I can understand my own handwriting I should be fine, right ? Anyway I can’t wait to start writing with this and hopefully don’t stain my hands with ink since I’m quite a clumsy person.
Edgar Allen Poe Socks by Out of Print
Let me just say that I love Edgar Allen Poe because my first reading experience was his story The Tell-Tale Heart when I was in the third grade. These socks are hilariously creepy in my opinion and I love them.
Six of Crows inspired bookmark from Treehouse of Books
I love getting those bookmarks specially ones that include a quote from a great book, this bookmark is double sided and I really loved how detailed the feathers are.
This Savage Song inspired sticker from Evie Bookish
I really enjoyed This Savage Song, it’s one of my favorite books in fact so I was so happy seeing this sticker. It’s so pretty and I still don’t know where to put it, I was thinking somewhere at my office or my laptop. Also anything from Evie Bookish is amazing, period.
Sleepy Hollow and other short stories by Washington Irving
My eyes lit up when I saw this book, I love Sleepy Hollow. I’ve watched the movie and I was planning to start watching the series that recently ended, so this made me so happy to see this book in the box and I absolutely love the cover.
As usual the book came with a signed bookplate which looks really cute, also a handwritten letter from the author.
Now finally book of the month …
The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jone
When Dee Moreno makes a deal with a devil–her heart in exchange for an escape from a disastrous home life–she finds her trade may be more than she bargained for. And becoming “heartless” is only the beginning. What lies ahead is a nightmare far bigger, far more monstrous than anything she ever could have imagined.
With reality turned on its head, Dee has only a group of other deal-making teens to keep her grounded, including the charming but secretive James Lancer. And as something like love grows between them amidst an otherworldly ordeal, Dee begins to wonder: can she give James her heart when it’s no longer hers to give?
The Hearts We Sold is a Faustian tale for the modern age that will steal your heart and break it, and leave you begging for more.
This is a very interesting summary and somehow reminded me of Kingdom Hearts for some reason, probably from the Hearts mention. It sounds very interesting and I can’t wait to start reading it.
Overall, I loved this box. Everything in it fits perfectly with the theme and I love every item, obviously Sleepy Hollow book mostly. Hope you enjoyed this post and have a great day.
