I’m very sad to write this review because this is my last OwlCrate and it hurts that I had to cancel. I was considering donating some of my books so I could have more room for books on my shelves and then I could probably reactivate my subscription since it’s honestly my favorite subscription box. Anyway let’s get into this post, so October theme was Find Me In The Woods.
Cabeswater Candle from In the Wick of Time
I’ll never say no to candles, I love collecting them for some reason. This candle is inspired by The Raven Cycle and it smells absolutely amazing, I didn’t think moss and mint would smell this good together.
Exclusive Harry Potter Mug from Cara Kozik
This is the first time OwlCrate sends a mug in their boxes and it’s gorgeous. I’m a Harry Potter fan so this made me so happy, the design illustrates the forbidden forest from Hagrid’s cottage with Buckbeak in the pumpkin fields then unicorn and the centaur, finally the Weasley’s flying car and Aragog the Arachnid. I’m in love with this and I instantly took it to my office so I can have my morning coffee with it.
Princess Mononoke Art Print by Audra Auclair
I’m so happy they included a Ghibli related item, this print looks so amazing. I was so impressed by the designs of Audra Auclair, they are so beautiful so please if you have time just check them.
Sherwood Forest Loose Tea from Riddle’s Tea Shop
Robin Hood was one the first anime I watched in Arabic dub, reading the name of this tea made me happy for some reason. I’m not a tea blend fan but Earl Grey would be my favorite tea so I don’t mind trying this blend.
Magnetic Bookmarks From Craftedvan
I love Craftedvan designs, they are always too cute and adorable. These bookmarks are from Where the Wild Things Are and they are so cute.
Coaster Illustrated from Kristin Askland
A Mug, tea and a coaster in one box, thank you OwlCrate. This coaster is so beautiful, it goes well with the new mug and it’s a great addition for my office desk.
As usual the book came with a lovely letter from the author and also a signed bookplate. Also a pack of seeds, it didn’t specify what sort of plants it’ll grow so it’s all a mystery.
and finally book of the month …
For nearly a century, the Nomeolvides women have tended the grounds of La Pradera, the lush estate gardens that enchant guests from around the world. They’ve also hidden a tragic legacy: if they fall in love too deeply, their lovers vanish. But then, after generations of vanishings, a strange boy appears in the gardens.
The boy is a mystery to Estrella, the Nomeolvides girl who finds him, and to her family, but he’s even more a mystery to himself; he knows nothing more about who he is or where he came from than his first name. As Estrella tries to help Fel piece together his unknown past, La Pradera leads them to secrets as dangerous as they are magical in this stunning exploration of love, loss, and family.
I actually love OwlCrate exclusive cover more than the original. The summary sounds so interesting and obviously I’m all about the magic part, I’ve read some reviews of this book to be a slow-burner so we’ll see how it goes when I start reading it.
Overall, this would be my favorite box in 2017 from OwlCrate. Everything in this box is perfect and I love it.
