Full box spoilers after the jump.

Ceramic Mug by Cara Kozik
Inspired by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Double-sided woodmark by In The Reads
Inspired by Star Wars

Sour Cherry Scones tea by Riddle’s Tea Shoppe
Inspired by Carry On

Arrow shaped paperclip set by @paperbackbones
Inspired by The Hunger Games

Apron by @paperbackbones
Inspired by the Raven Cycle

Two errors on the apron: misspelling of prediction & Henrietta is in Virginia not West Virginia

Book of the Month: Goddess in the Machine by Lora Beth Johnson

Owlcrate’s exclusive edition includes:

  • uniquely colored cover
  • surprise foil design on the naked hardback
  • gold foil gilded pages

Jubly Umph is the pin designer (not pictured).

The mug is obviously the best part of this box. I’ll use the woodmark & tea even though I’m not a fan of the fandoms.

I’m severly underwhelmed with the items paperbackbones collaborates on. So far they’ve been pretty lame: bamboo moon phase banner, habit tracker, paperclip set? Seriously? A nice bookstagram feed doesn’t equate to a designer.

Not to mention, TWO errors in one piece? Big money is spent on these items. Why aren’t multiple people spellchecking? I’ll be interested to see if Owlcrate will set this right.

August’s theme is Written in the Stars. You can see my prediction for August’s book boxes here.
