OwlCrate: May 2016

I’m so excited! In case you can’t tell by now, OwlCrate boxes are amazing and I love getting them in the mail. They’re glorious, and wonderful, and creative, and full of goodies that make your fangirl heart squeal.

In case you don’t know what the glorious OwlCrate is, it’s just like Fandom of the Month only.. better? I don’t know, I love them both. OwlCrate gives you a new release in the Young Adult world and a bunch of bookish stuff centered around a specific theme. It’s a subscription box that is worth every little penny – count on that. (You guys can sign up here)


In case you weren’t paying attention last month, the little preview told us what the theme would be. Anyone remember? Guess what! THIS MONTH’S THEME IS STEAMPUNK!


Look how beautiful it is…


I mean, just look at it! I’m in love, and it’s just the post card. Argh. OwlCrate kills me every time.

First up, we got this amazing set of nail art! I can’t wait to use it. I’m so excited I might die.


After that, I pulled out this awesome little (not really, it’s quite large) broach. It’s amazing, and I mean AH-MAZ-ING! Apparently, there were different accessories given out – so everyone pretty much got something different. I can’t wait to see what the others got.


I can’t wait to wear it. I have no idea where to wear it or what to wear it with, but it shall be done!

I’m going to stick with the keys for a second, LOOK AT THIS NECKLACE! I am in love. Enough said.


It is simply beautiful.

Then we have one of my personal favorites: an Infernal Devices ring! I died a little bit. Yes, my lovely bookish people, that is the clockwork angel. Like I said, I died a little bit.


Additionally, we were given this wonderful Peter Pan art print. I cannot wait to get a frame and hang it on my wall. If you don’t know, Peter Pan and Beauty and the Beast are my ultimate favorite fairy tales. Just sayin’.


On top of all that wonderful stuff, we also get a book – which, as usual, is probably my favorite part of the entire box despite how much I love everything else. This month we were gifted the wondrous Everland by Wendy Spinale. I screamed. DYSTOPIAN PETER PAN!?!?! Hell yes!


Summary from Goodreads:

London has been destroyed in a blitz of bombs and disease. The only ones who have survived are children, among them Gwen Darling and her siblings, Joanna and Mikey. They spend their nights scavenging and their days avoiding the ruthless Marauders — the German army led by Captain Hanz Otto Oswald Kretschmer.

Unsure if the virus has spread past England’s borders but desperate to leave, Captain Hook hunts for a cure, which he thinks can be found in one of the survivors. He and his Marauders stalk the streets snatching children for experimentation. None ever return. Until the day they grab Joanna. As Gwen sets out to save her, she meets a daredevil boy named Pete. Pete offers the assistance of his gang of Lost Boys and the fierce sharpshooter Bella, who have all been living in a city hidden underground. But in a place where help has a steep price and every promise is bound by blood, it will cost Gwen. And are she, Pete, the Lost Boys, and Bella enough to outsmart Captain Hook?

As part of the book package, there were some really cool, shiny looking temporary tattoos. It’s awesome.
