Owlcrate January 2017 Spoilers

Owlcrate January 2017 SPOILERS!

This month Owlcrate sent great goodies inspired by popular and loved classic books. 

Keep reading if you want to see all the “Classic Remix” contents!

1The book selection was Roseblood by A. G. Howard. I’ve wanted to read her books for ages and I definitely will do it soon! This novel is a YA retelling of The Phantom of the Opera, but with a modern day spin. Value: $11.86

A delicious tea blend from First Edition Tea Co. This exclusive fragrance was inspired by The Little Prince and it has a mint and herbal flavor. (I love mint tea!) Value: $2.50

3A second delicious item! Or at least it smells wonderful, though I don’t know about its flavor. This exclusive soap from TeaSoapBooks was inspired by The Secret Garden and smells like white tea and berries! The scent reminds me of blueberry pancakes. Value: Around $5 (since this is a smaller version of this similar product)

A Phantom of the Opera magnet designed by Sweet Sequels. It has a really cute and exclusive design, it might be the start of my bookish magnet collection. Value: Around $5

A watercolor bookmark designed by Lexy Olivia with a quote from Slaughterhouse Five. (The back says “and nothing hurt”).  Value: $8

Finally, a 2017 calendar by Obvious State featuring monthly illustrations inspired by children’s books. Value: Around $7 (based on a similar item)

I always love getting warm drinks and scented items, especially if they are inspired by my favorite books. I think the tea was a nice touch for these cold months! I also really appreciate the 2017 calendar because I forgot to buy one. The box did feel like a “classic remix”!

Overall, I liked all the items. I also think that I’ll soon have one bookmark for every book I own!

An Owlcrate box is $29.99 + shipping. You can use my discount code PRETTY10 to get 10% off your first box 🙂

According to my calculations, the value of the December box was around $39.36 (it might vary since this month I had to guess some prices)

I received this box from Owlcrate in exchange for an unboxing. All opinions are my own!

Next month’s theme is:

Run Away with the Circus“. The next Owlcrate box will be inspired by the circus and will include a mystery bookish candle!


What did you think about this box? Which one was your favorite item? Mine was the soap, haha. I can’t wait to smell like tea and berries.

    I didn’t get the January box this time, but it looks lovely! I’ve seen the novel around for sometime but I’ve never really checked it out (probably should, haha!). I really like the bookmark – Lexy’s bookmark designs are always so wonderful and pretty! I feel like I don’t say this enough so here: I LOVE the photos you take! So colourful and bubbly and it gives me all the happy feel good vibes, haha!
