August 2016 Owlcrate Unboxing

Ok, so I think I’ve waited long enough to post my Owlcrate unboxing. This may be one of the few I conduct. I am not subscribed to Owlcrate, I just got the August 2016 box as a birthday present.

1. Owlcrate Box

Ok, but even the box is cute. Look at the little footprints!

2. Spoiler Alert

This card explains most of what’s in the box, hence the “spoiler alert.”

6. Decomposition Book

The version of the decomposition book that I received was red. The inside front and back cover contained creative and various illustrations. This book is great for writing down my notes and thoughts.

9. Coloring Book and Color Pencils

This coloring book is so soothing and cathartic. I usually use my own color pencils since the ones provided are small and limiting in color. However, they are really nice.

10. Letter from the Author

Kasie West wrote a sweet letter to her readers. She talks about the importance and connection of personal letters. She also shares a story that influenced her book, P.S. I Like You. It is even smudged and words are crossed out, making it look very authentic.

11. P.S. I Like You

This book was on my radar for a while. I was so glad to receive it. I can’t wait to read it.

12. Signed Bookplate

Kasie West took the time to sign a bunch of bookplates. I am thankful for her time and effort, and feel bad for her most likely sore wrist.

I loved this Owlcrate! And not only because it was my first and maybe my last. I had been looking at buying and reading P.S. I Like You. I was glad that I hadn’t already bought it. I still haven’t read this book because my TBR is soooo long. However, I had been looking at reading a Kasie West novel. Here is my authors of summer reading list, featuring Kasie West and 7 other great authors like her.

I had actually guessed that P.S. I Like You would be the featured book:

Thank you Owlcrate for your August 2016 box. I am thankful for all of the thought and effort that you put into the making of each month’s package.
