Owlcrate Fear The Night Unboxing

Owlcrate Fear The Night Unboxing

It’s almost Halloween, so it is to expected that multiple bookish boxes would do a Halloween edition. Owlcrate is one of them. I have a subscription on Owlcrate, since I’m in desperate need of their Queen Of Nothing box and this was the only way to get it. That did mean I would also get this box. I didn’t really mind, since I kinda like Halloween materials, so let’s go!


The first thing was a little box with a trinket dish in it. I already had one from a former Fairyloot box and I don’t use that one, so I sadly don’t have a lot of use for this trinket dish. But the design is absolutely gorgeous. It’s made by Stella Bookish Art, a designer with a style I adore. I also really like the used quote, but if I’m really gonna use it, I wonder…

The second item were the fingerless gloves. I immediately got a flashback to my good old emo period where these kind of items were a fashion statement. I have a pretty cold room, so I might use them when I’m working in my home!

The third item, that you could also see in the last picture is the coffee. Even though the taste sounds absolutely delicious (you can wake me up for everything involving caramel), I don’t have a coffee machine in my home. Yes, I know you don’t exactly need one, so I’m thinking about using it without the machine, since I’m really curious to find out how it tastes. The coffee is from Bones Coffee Company.

The next item, which is probably my favorite, is the Glow In The Dark skull pin by Lapels and Spells. Owlcrate always has an enamel pin in their boxes and It’s always one of my favorite items in boxes. I love the amount of details enamel pin artist can get in such a small surface. And the glow in the dark part is such a fun extra!

There was also an art print in this box. I always love to see artists making gorgeous fan art, but I didn’t think this one was that special. Not because of the art style, which is pretty, but because it’s based on a quote from Ray Bradbury’s ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes, but it’s not something that really interests me. The artprint is made by Anne Lambelet Illustration.

In this box there wasn’t one, but two books! Next to the official book, there was also a Penguin Horror Classic in it. I was kinda hoping for Dracula or Frankenstein, but it was The Haunting of Hill House. I gotta be honest, I haven’t read this book yet, so it’s kinda a good thing that this one was the chosen book! And also, it’s curated by the amazing Guillermo del Toro, so it’s definitely going to be amazing!

The featured book in this box is The Bone Houses. This book is about Aderyn, who is a gravedigger and goes through a tough time since both her parents died. When Ellis, a map maker, comes in town, the awakened dead, also known as Bone Houses, get a new ferocity. Together they have to travel to find a solution to both their problems. This book isn’t one I would have bought for myself, but I am pretty interested in the story. I kinda like getting books in different genres, to find out if my tastes have changed overtime. So I can’t wait to start this book!

I was pretty suprised about how much I liked this box! I loved almost all items, even though some of the items I’m probably not gonna use (in the near future). My favorite item was defintely the enamel pin. It’s such a beauty. I kinda hoped that this box would have a candle, since that’s something I think would have been a befitting item. Maybe next time. I will also get Owlcrate’s next box, Dawn Of A New World, so I can’t wait to find out what’s going to be in that box!
