After having enjoyed the October Owlcrate Box so much, I decided to continue my subscription in November as well.

I couldn’t wait to get it. When I came home and walked through the door and saw it waiting for me, I went totally nuts. Still with my jacket on and not even greeting my husband, I focused on November’s Owlcrate.

So let’s take a look at this cool box.

The theme for November was Myths and Legends. And this is what the inside looked like.

Let’s see what we had in there. And there was quite a lot.

First thing I’ve pulled out, was this Camp Half-Blood bracelet. I haven’t read the books and also can’t really wear that bracelet all that much to work. But it’s a perfect gift for a fan of the franchise.

Next thing I’ve pulled out was this absolutely gorgeous tin. I fell completely in love with it and the scent coming from it was beautiful. Inside was tea. I love tea and drink lots of it everyday. So this totally thrilled me. And let me tell you. That tea is amazing. Adagio Tea is definitely a company I’ll be ordering from.

Then there was this cute little mermaid-style pocket mirror.

You can never have enough jewelry as a woman. That’s what there was this pretty little locket necklace from The Geeky Couldron. I’m looking forward to wearing it.

And last but definitely not least: the book.
This month’s book is “Soundless” by Richelle Mead. It’s a November release, so there wasn’t much danger of getting a book I already had. Together with the book has come an exclusive bookmark and temporary tattoos.

This book is not something I would have picked up without Owlcrate and I would have truly missed out on a wonderful read. I just finished it a couple days ago and am absolutely in awe. Review to follow.

From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore.

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. FeiÔÇÖs home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of FeiÔÇÖs jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever…
