Who’s ready for the most EPIC Owlcrate box of the year?!
For December, the Owlcrate theme is EPIC which includes bookish goodies from Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and The Chronicles of Narnia.
If you’re new to my blog to the lovely Owlcrate boxes, this growing company supplies one of my absolute favorite YA monthly book subscription boxes featuring a themed book and 3-5 bookish goodies.
You can click here to jump on over to their official website and learn more about their subscription services and pricing.
So here’s my December 2016 EPIC unboxing!
Just like with every month, this info card should NOT be flipped over until the end of the unboxing in order to get the most surprises out of it!
Eeek! If you need to know ANYTHING about me, it is that I am one of Harry Potter’s BIGGEST wizarding fans!
And with my obsession of FunkoPops, I flipped when I saw this box inside. If you don’t know what a Mystery Mini is, it is like the name says, a mystery! Inside is a black plastic bag that hides a surprise Funko character inside. This box has 16 possible characters that are found in the Wizarding World.
Which one do you think I got??
Inside my box was….
AHH! Dobby is now a Free Elf!
The next item is for those who are Hobbit Fans.
This is a Lord of the Rings enamel pin designed from Jane Mount over at Ideal Bookshelf. I love these types of pins. They will be perfect to pin on my favorite totebag!
Underneath that is another one of my favorite books, Game of Thrones. This small box holds four bookish designed coasters featuring the different emblems of their world. These were created by Dark Horse Comics. I love adding bookish coasters to my bookshelves for decoration.
Owlcrate has been adding these cute buttons into their boxes over the last few months that feature a part of their info card design. Bonus!
Now we all remember that part in the Narnia where the girl steps into the closet, right? Well if not, here is a visual reminder of that scene which is depicted in this blank notecard designed from Susanne Draws. Do you remember now??
One item that I did not realize was at the bottom of the box until AFTER I took all of these photos was a circle sticker made by Miss Phi featuring A Darker Shade of Magic. I will be uploading a picture of this sticker to my Instagram feed soon!
And finally, for the book of the month!
Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst
“Betrothed since childhood to the prince of Mynaria, Princess Dennaleia has always known what her future holds. Her marriage will seal the alliance between Mynaria and her homeland, protecting her people from other hostile lands. But Denna has a secret. She possesses an Affinity for fire—a dangerous gift for the future queen of a kingdom where magic is forbidden.
Now, Denna must learn the ways of her new home while trying to hide her growing magic. To make matters worse, she must learn to ride Mynaria’s formidable warhorses—and her teacher is the person who intimidates her most, the prickly and unconventional Princess Amaranthine—called Mare—the sister of her betrothed.
When a shocking assassination leaves the kingdom reeling, Mare and Denna reluctantly join forces to search for the culprit. As the two become closer, Mare is surprised by Denna’s intelligence and bravery, while Denna is drawn to Mare’s independent streak. And soon their friendship is threatening to blossom into something more.
But with dangerous conflict brewing that makes the alliance more important than ever, acting on their feelings could be deadly. Forced to choose between their duty and their hearts, Mare and Denna must find a way to save their kingdoms—and each other.“
