August “Fast Times at YA High” OwlCrate Unboxing!


It’s weird, because this was one of the earliest OwlCrate boxes I have received so far, but also the one I was least excited about. That should in no way mean that it was a bad box, just not AS amazing as I have perceived the previous ones. But first things first, In case you don’t know what that means, OwlCrate is a monthly book subscription box. There is a different theme for each month, but you neither know which book you are going to get, nor which 3-4 awesome goodies it will include. You can find out more details by clicking here.

The Book

To my utter shame I have to admit that I have never read a Kasie West book before, but P.S. I Like You seems so cute and is simply beautiful without it’s dust jacket on. From what I hear, people have sometimes finished it in one sitting, because it’s a fast and fun read. I already scheduled it as one of my reads for my September TBR and can’t wait to dive into something light and fluffy!


The Goodies

So, here’s what was featured in the August box in addition to the book:

  • A custom-designed Eleanor & Park necklace – which is just adorable! I already wore it and it has the perfect length!
  • A Harry Potter print by Susanne Draws – I like to look at the prints OwlCrate includes, but I honestly don’t really know what to do with them. Still, it’s really cute and apparently exclusive to the box.
  • A Hogwarts button by Taryn Draws – OwlCrate is spoiling me with Harry Potter gifts and I feel more and more guilty for never having read the books.
  • A decomposition notebook – one can NEVER have enough notebooks, that’s a fact! And I like dinosaurs and the colour green, so I really cannot complain about this at all.
  • Adult colouring book by Blue Star Coloring – I’ve seen those colouring books everywhere these days, heck we are even selling them at the shop I work at. However, I don’t know how I feel about them and I am terribly scared to ruin them by actually colouring them … so I am not sure they do relieve stress for me. But I will try!

Next month’s theme is already buzzing around the internet, being “Darkness” it seems to intrigue as all. There are a couple contenders for the book, but my guess is on Three Dark Crowns. We will see if I was right once again! September I will get an OwlCrate box AND a Fairyloot one, so double the unboxing by this time next month – yay!

    • I know the boxes are mad expensive! In the end it turned out that Fairyloot was even more expensive, even though they are technically in Europe and OwlCrate sends from the States. Soooo … there aren’t really any cheap version available yet.
      (On a side note: I am currently thinking about starting my own sub box for the German speaking area … my mum started the idea and now it won’t leave me. Shipping would definitely be cheaper then).

      • It’s pretty difficult to set up. There is so much research to do for the whole legal/tax-stuff, so it might take some time, but that idea hasn’t left me in ages. I only have to think about how I can sell that idea to publishers, especially since I believe it would sell better with the books in English and not German.


      • Yeah, absolutely. The major issue can be the language… I do think there’s a huge community of English readers but all the publishing branches will manage the German editions, and therefore will be providing the books in German.. Uhm. It sounds like a challenge, Kat. That’s for sure! If it ever takes off, count me in as a loyal costumer (if I’m still living in these lands) and of course, if you need anyone close by 🙂 – for like anything.


      • Thanks so much, I really appreciate it! I am still in my research phase, but I definitely think there’s a market for it. Maybe even something Europe-wide if the shipping costs can somehow be reduced. We will see! Little steps will get me there somehow. I will definitely keep you updated 😉
