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.”
3. Fast Times at YA High Postcard
This card had a cute little intro cartoon and “Fast Times at YA High” title.
4. Drawstring Pouch + Necklace
The blue drawstring pouch was holding an adorable Eleanor & Park necklace with a cover picture and cassette tape.
There were two buttons: Chapter Raptor and Hogwarts is my Home. I absolutely love the Hogwarts one!
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.
7. Golden Trio by Susanne Draws
Here we see our favorite three people in the world of Harry Potter. This cute drawing of Harry, Ron, and Hermione was done by Susanne Draws.
8. Rainbow Rowell Card
This Rainbow Rowell card included an avid readers addiction, as well as Rainbow Rowell’s books: Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, Carry On.
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.
