Friends and Fangirls, YA is the best thing in the planet. Young adult books are truly a miracle, especially when they are a part of subscription boxes. I both bought and received Elizabeth Frankenstein from a subscription box, gave away one copy, and fell in love with the other.
Alright, I know I was so late reviewing last month’s box that this one feels like it came immediately afterwards, but I’m trying to be more on top of things! I’m really excited about this box, as Things are Not What They Seem is an incredible theme! I am really excited about the contents, so let’s get right into it.
To start, this month’s box had some lovely paper goods, including a bookmark, a smoothie recipe, a playlist, gratitude journal, and an Edgar Allen Poe poem.
This was my final Owl Crate, and it was a doozy! This incredible box was filled to the brim with beautiful items! While I’m sad to say goodbye, I’m glad I went out on a high note. Lets get into what was inside the box!
I preordered this box in August, when they announced this new box. The idea behind it is to give readers things to do off of their phone; make reading more of an experience. I really love this idea, and was therefore incredibly excited about a box with items to help me relax while I read. So, let’s jump right in!
Oh my goodness. I ordered this what feels like ages ago, and have been super excited about it! I got it last week while at work, and I struggled to wait until I got home, but I’m glad I did, because I was so blown away by the contents. Before we get into it, lets get some background; Magic & Mayhem is a one time order from Illumicrate. Illumicrate is a subscription box company based out of the UK. Magic & Mayhem was said to be focused on Victoria Schwab’s works. It also coincided with the release of Vengeful, the sequel to her book Vicious. I literally started Vicious the day I received my box, but I was hopeful that there would also be some Darker Shades of Magic themed items in there as well. Spoiler alert: there were.

Friends, we’re back! I had the incredible pleasure of unboxing another OwlCrate this month. I didn’t know as many of the references as I had last month, but I’m still excited about the box. Please be warned, there is nothing but spoilers ahead. If you haven’t received your box yet, don’t hit that read more tab!
