Owlcrate Unboxing: June 2017

Wow, it's been over a year since I've done an Owlcrate unboxing! I've missed getting Owlcrate in my mailbox. When I had the extra funds and found out about all the special items in this box this month, including a SECOND book, I knew I had to subscribe again. I thought I knew what books were going to be coming in the box, but I was dead wrong. That's all part of the fun, though, as it meant I was surprised when I opened the box.

The theme for this month was "Make It Out Alive" and this month there were 5 items and 2 books. I thought this box was pretty good but, honestly, it wasn't my favorite Owlcrate box. I loved most of the items but I feel like some of their past boxes that I missed out on were even better. Now, this doesn't mean I hated the box. I still am super excited about all these items, though. So, without further ado, I present the June 2017 Owlcrate box.

You can see all of the items I'm about to list pictured above:

First we had an exclusively designed Ember in the Ashes inspired magnet from Little Inklings Design.
Second we had a double-sided bookmark inspired by A Court of Wings and Ruin designed by Hey Atlas Creative.
Third we had a Divergent inspired bath bomb by Fizzy Fairy Apothecary.
Fourth we had a zombie sleep mask from Archie McPhee.
Fifth we had a The Giver inspired patch designed by Laserbrain Patch Co.
The bonus book we got this month was New World Rising by Jennifer Wilson, published by Oftomes Publishing. 
And the book for this month was Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson. It came with a signed bookplate, letter, and exclusive sticker sheet. The cover was also an Owlcrate exclusive!

Here are a few close ups of some of the items listed...

The An Ember in the Ashes inspired magnet (I may have squealed when I saw it-fav item right here!)

I thought this was a good box and I enjoyed most of the items in it. The patch, while unique and something that I've never seen in a box before, is not something I see myself using. I didn't really enjoy The Giver when I read it and I don't really have anything I put patches on. If it were for one of my favorite series, I would probably enjoy it more. Still, I think the patch itself is beautiful and a unique idea.

I am super excited for the July box, which I am planning on continuing my subscription for! The theme is Wanderlust and our first sneak peek is that it will feature an officially licensed Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them item! 


Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed!
