Mythical Creatures | Owlcrate Unboxing

When I read that this box is titled, Mythical Creatures, I kind of imagined something along the lines of unicorns. Something sparkly and positive maybe. So, it was a little disappointing when it turned out to be dragons. Not that I hate them, just that I wasn’t expecting them.

Breakdown:

  • Box Theme: Mythical Creatures
  • Box Month: September 2017
  • Category: Young Adult

At long last! I got a book box without any drama! Finally!!

If you don’t remember the dramatical play that I’ve been living so far, please don’t hesitate to enjoy my misery Part A, Part B and Part C.

Well on with the show! I guess.

My Review:

When I read that this box is titled, Mythical Creatures, I kind of imagined something along the lines of unicorns. Something sparkly and positive maybe. So, it was a little disappointing when it turned out to be dragons. Not that I hate them, just that I wasn’t expecting them. Anyway, I realllly love the Book Sleeve! I’ve wanted one for quite some time now, so FINALLY! To be honest, the design wasn’t so great, but it was still perfect for me. My sister is a huge fan of bath salts and Percy Jackson, so ‘Son of Poseidon’ is perfect. Let’s not forget the Mother of Dragons bookmark!! Anything with my Kaleesi on it is brilliant. All in all, not bad.

  1. Ohhhhh this looks awesome! I love that book sleeve and I LOVE THAT HAGRID STICKER!! ❤️ Before She Ignites sounds wonderful, I have it on my tbr list and I’ve been super curious about it. I know what you mean about more unicorns though, I’m totally with you. I love dragons, but am DEFINITELY more team unicorn when it comes to mythical creatures.

    Yesterday I just signed up for the next owlcrate! I heard a rumor that there’s going to be a Raven Cycle related item and that was all I needed to hear. TAKE MY MONEY! 😂

    1. Thank you!! Do you own any book sleeves? This one is my first, although I’m a little bummed when I realized some of my books dont fit in it! Also, do you have a copy of the book, Before she ignites? I’m just about to start reading it now, so I’m excited. And Unicorns right! I was soo disappointed.
      Is this your first time signing up for owlcrate?

      1. No I don’t have any! Although I should really get some. I always shove books in my Mary Poppins purse and then curse myself later when my books come out beat up. Gah! But that’s a bummer it doesn’t fit all your books though!! I don’t have a copy of the book yet, but I really want one. The blurb sounded really good and I’ve heard some good things, so I’m curious to hear what you think! And yes it is my first!! I’ve never gotten an owlcrate before but I keep seeing awesome things about it. Any excuse to get more book stuff!

        1. That is the worst feeling, right! Trusting ur books with ur purse and then getting betrayed! BTW cool Mary Poppins purse! That’s awesome!

          Anyway, it really is annoying when u have something for a certain purpose but then it fails doing its own job, like the book sleeve. It’s like why do I even have you!

          As for Before She Ignites, I just finished reading it and it was a bit disappointing. I won’t ruin what happens for u, but it wasn’t that great. You’re not really missing anything if u don’t read it.

          Congratz on ur first ever owlcrate!!! I hope it turns out to be something amazing for you! ❤
