Hello, hello! I’m back with a new blog post and it is my first ever unboxing post! A few days ago an owl carrying something huge arrived with the mail. I don’t really receive boxed packages, and when I do, it’s usually addressed to my parents from our relatives or something. But this mail was addressed to me and yes, it’s a box, which means I’ve officially received my first ever bookish box, and it is…
I won this box from a giveaway hosted by @babybibliophile on Instagram. I’m so thankful to the author and the publishing company, Stories Untold Press, as well. I remember entering several of D.E. Night’s Croswald giveaways so many months ago and it’s fun to think how lucky I am now!
Now. Back to the box. Well, all I can say about this box is that it’s magical. Literally magical. The contents are so awesome that without further ado, I’ll share them with you!
Wow. This box isn’t like your regular Owlcrate or Fairyloot box. But then again, it’s also not a subscription box. While your average book subscription boxes scream “PRETTY STUFF”, this box screams “MAGIC INSIDE, ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK.” Like seriously guys, the design makes it look like it’s made of wood! So pretty. Wanna know the contents? Well they are…
Crowns of Croswald print
It’s purple AND pretty! It’s a field full of whimsical glowing flowery plants. And the girl, Ivy Lovely, is holding a cage. OMG IS THAT A DOMESTIC DRAGON?!?! I WANT ONE FOR CHRISTMAS!!! And at the back side is a cute little note.
Newspapers have never been more magical. Who would have known that bookish newspapers would make lovely treasures? The news featured were so realistic that it seems like another world exists! A wonderful world, if I might add. The headlines and stories are so creative. Is there any way I could subscribe to the Scriven This newspaper? I don’t want to lose touch with the Croswald world just yet! I wonder what would happen if I swap this special newspaper to my Dad’s local one?
Glanagerie Bottle & Card
First of all, you might wonder what a glanagerie is. Well it look like that sparkly potion thingy in the pictures. And guess what?! It freaking glows! It releases the prettiest bluish light and if you’re in a really dark place, it glows AND sparkles! How cool is that! I read the card and it actually serves a huge role in the book. Do you know how important the glanagerie is in the Croswald world? Well, I’m not gonna tell you, go read the book and find out for yourself!
Fun fact: The glanagerie is my favorite item from this box, aside from the book of course. Now I can do potion photoshoots.
And last but definitely not the least…
The Crowns of Croswald by D.E. Night
Yay! This is a SIGNED COPY with an AUTHOR’S LETTER. Isn’t that awesome?! This book has one of the best covers ever. I cannot wait to read this book, sometime after I’ve partially conquered the Great Wall of TBRs. I say partially because I know I’m never going to be able to defeat it. Unless if I become the reader version of Flash.
Anyway, back to the book. Crowns of Croswald is the new fantasy sensation, and was published in 2017. It’s also D.E. Night’s first book. Here’s the synopsis:
Summary of items
- Crowns of Croswald print

Over all, this was an amazing box! I had so much fun unboxing this and so much excitement waiting for it to arrive. The items inside are unique and never seen before. Well, except for the feeds of past receivers. And possibly Kreacher’s secret stash of pretty unboxing pictures. This is a great first for me. If I could rate this box, I’d give it a full five stars! Bonus points also go to the amazing team behind the Croswald world, the team that makes sure everyone gets a healthy dose of magic.
