OwlCrate From Olympus with Love Unboxed Spoilers January 2021

My excitement for this box was destroyed the day before it was delivered. I was scrolling through #bookstagram, and someone published their unboxing.

The book was the first photo of the slide show. No spoiler warning, nothing, just the book sitting there in my face a day before my box arrived.

Ugh. Lesson learned. Stay off of Instagram before you get your box because people don’t think about others who might not want to see spoilers.

Okay enough of my pity party. *sob*

I’m still happy with everything that came in this one, so let’s get started!

January From Olympus With Love OwlCrate Packaging

Just a standard box this month. Here are a couple photos of the packaging.

What was in the OwlCrate From Olympus with Love box?

First comes all the papers, the spoiler card, a pamphlet with the photo prompts, a letter from the author, and the teaser card for next month’s box.

This box’s color scheme was Halloweenish to me, and I loved every bit of its witchy vibes

Olive Branches Pin Banner

Designed by Michelle Gray, its purpose is to pin all the OwlCreate enamel pins to display them, but if I’m honest, I’m going to hang it on my wall as is.

It’s my favorite color combination of black and gold, so it’ll match my home’s aesthetic perfectly.

Lunar Calendar Tapestry

This Lunar Calendar Tapestry is absolutely stunning and suits my personal at-home aesthetic. I can’t wait to get this on my wall.

The tapestry is designed by Eden Cooke and showcases two of the Olympians, Artemis (the goddess of the moon) and Athena (the goddess of wisdom).

Wooden Bookmark

This double-sided wooden bookmark is designed by In The Reads. It was inspired by Madeline Miller’s two Greek mythology retellings, The Song Of Achilles and Circe.

The quote on the dark side says:

There are rare moments when another soul dips near yours as stars once a year brush the earth such a constellation was he to me.

The lighter side says:

I would know him in death, at the end of the world.

Nectar of the Gods Loose Leaf Tea

This is another tea from Riddle’s Tea Shoppe, and it smells so peachy and delicious.

Ingredients: decaf ceylon tea, roobios tea, natural peach flavor, peach pieces, marigold flowers, apple pieces, natural vanilla flavor, natural caramel flavor, apricots, and marigold flowers.

Letter Board and Pouch

I think this felt letter board is my favorite item in this box aside from the book (but the tapestry and banner are both so beautiful). I was looking at these on Amazon, and they’re up to $40. This came with many letters and emojis, plus a cute little zipper bag to store the letters.

Team OwlCrate created the Hermes Felt Letter Board Kit, and the pouch features the Messenger of the Gods, himself.

From Olympus with Love Enamel Pin

Icey Designs created this month’s Medusa Shield Enamel pin. It’s in honor of Gorgon and the important shield referenced in this month’s book.

It says:

The eyes of the Gods are upon you.

What was the book in OwlCrate’s From Olympus with Love box?

It’s Lore, and I am so excited to read it.

Synopsis

Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals, hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality. Long ago, Lore Perseous fled that brutal world in the wake of her family’s sadistic murder by a rival line, turning her back on the hunt’s promises of eternal glory. For years she’s pushed away any thought of revenge against the man–now a god–responsible for their deaths. Yet as the next hunt dawns over New York City, two participants seek out her help: Castor, a childhood friend of Lore believed long dead, and a gravely wounded Athena, among the last of the original gods. The goddess offers an alliance against their mutual enemy and, at last, a way for Lore to leave the Agon behind forever. But Lore’s decision to bind her fate to Athena’s and rejoin the hunt will come at a deadly cost–and still may not be enough to stop the rise of a new god with the power to bring humanity to its knees.

The cover is beautiful, the end pages are magnificent, the white naked book with gold foiling is so beautiful, and it’s a signed edition. Have I said it’s beautiful? Okay, just look:

Final thoughts on the From Olympus with Love OwlCrate box?

I’m so excited to hang these beautiful black, white, and gold decorations on my walls and use the letter board in my office. Of course, Lore has been on my TBR for a long time, so I’m excited to read it the most!

What’s your favorite item in this box? Have you read Lore?

Best,
