I was really impressed with this month’s box – that book cover change? – likely my favourite they’ve ever done! So let’s get right into this unboxing:

Nothing is more important during these long, unendingly hot summer days than staying hydrated! All you From Blood and Ash fans will rejoice with this collapsible Blood Forest silicone water bottle, designed by NoOne Designs. When you’re finished your water, simply roll up the bottle and toss in your bag for easy transport. 

I say it every time but I am always so excited to receive anything from Fiction Bath Co – and this sugared orange body spray/room spray smells soooo yummy! (I personally use it as a room spray). Inspired by the excellent stand alone fantasy, Priory of the Orange Tree, I’m so happy to receive an item from this fandom!!

I think the most popular (and fought over!) item in my household from our years as OwlCrate subscribers has to be the bowl cozy from fall 2020. Thankfully this month OwlCrate delivered us another! This double-sided bowl cozy was designed by Love You More Studio and was inspired by The Iron Fey series! 

This Wooden-swivel pocket mirror inscribed with a quote from These Hollow Vows was designed by KDP Letters. While I definitely have no use for yet another pocket mirror – this is my favourite we’ve received. I love the swivel design, which I hope will protect the mirror through the wear-and-tear of travelling at the bottom of my bag. 

Band of Weirdos has created these Throne of Glass goblet charms for your next bookish themed party or book club. I have no use for these as I don’t drink, but hey – I hope all you ToG fans can find some use for them! Maybe hang the charms from a backpack or coin purse? Let me know what ideas you come up with! 

Hey Atlas Creative continues to amaze me with these literary luggage enamel pins and this month’s pin is inspired by my personal favourite fantasy series of all time – City of Brass! I could never have enough fandom merch from this series that sadly doesn’t get enough. Love this pin! 

Okay, let’s gush over this gorgeous monthly book – Violet Made of Thorns by Gina Chen. This exclusive OwlCrate cover was redesigned by After Blossom Art and it is absolutely stunning. Equally stunning are the exclusive foiled endpapers, the reversible dust jacket artwork by Nicole Deal, and hardcover foil designs by Tes Medovich. This month’s book also came signed and with an included author letter from Gina Chen. 

Some boxes are available at www.owlcrate.com, while supplies last!
