It’s that time of the month again! For this lovely November, Owlcrate has gone with an adventurous theme of Myths & Legends!
Here is what was in this box:
After grabbing the box from the snowy tundra (YAY SNOW!), I grabbed a glimpse of the signature Owlcrate card featuring descriptions of this month’s bookish items.
Under the fluff, the first thing that I saw was this fun tin container featuring a Little Red Riding Hood theme. What was inside was very yummy smelling tea bags from Adaglo Teas! Full of cinnamon and apples, this will be the perfect addition to a snow day full of reading!
The next item that I see is a small bag with creative “The Geeky Cauldron” logo printed on it. Packaged inside was a fun castle necklace to accent the mythical theme for the box. This cute necklace also features a small locket that you could hide tiny notes in it if you wished.
Next to the castle was a circular metal piece that has scales on it. After tuning it over, I realized that this was a handy mirror that could fit in any tote bag or purse! This item is from My Clockwork Castle.
For fans of the bestselling mythical Percy Jackson series, this next bookish item is for you: a Camp Half Blood rubber bracelet from The Colorful Geek!
Now for the book of the month!
Soundless by Richelle Mead is a young adult fantasy standalone with a Chinese folklore twist.
“For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.
When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.
But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.
Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever…”
Along with the book came two exclusive items: a temporary tattoo set and a bookmark!
This is another great Owlcrate box! I definitely recommend this subscription box to anyone who loves young adult books and bookish things! Until next time…
