Lootcrate is a monthly subsciption box featuring awesome anime/tv/gaming/pop culture merchandise for any fan! The Dream Crate idea is absolutely genius because Lootcrate is giving fans the opportunity to fans to create their own crate with no restrictions and is totally based on what they would like to have in a subscription box. So if you're a fangirl/fanboy or you're involved in a fandom, Dream Crate is definitely for you!
A few days ago i got an email from Lootcrate about creating my own Dream Crate! I was immediately ecstatic about this since i've never ever gotten a subscription box and i've always wanted one! Trying to find and stick to one theme was absolute hell because there were so many things i wanted to do but i settled on YA retellings!
The crates could range from Beauty and The Beast inspired to Mythology retellings! Loads and loads of YA books are based on retellings and mythology so imagine a monthly crate with one myth/fairy tale featuring corresponding books, art, jewelry and maybe a candle? There could be a Beauty and the Beast one with ACOTAR merchandise, Anna Shoemaker's art, and a Cruel beauty book maybe?
I was thinking for days and days about which character i wanted to feature in the box and i settled on Mulan. A few things have inspired this Mulan Crate-firstly the fact that i recently got an ARC of Flame in the Mist -one of the most anticipated YA reads of 2017 by Renée Ahdieh that's inspired by Mulan! After reading that book (You can find my review here) i just remembered how much i LOVED this other series by Sara B Larson which has a lot of Mulan inspired facts though it's not set in China! More details about those books below!
So the Mulan trend in this crate-it's inspired by YA books where the main character has to basically go undercover as a spy/hide as a man and hide her identity.
Books - Defy series by Sara B. Larson and Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh. The books are pretty thin so they can fit in the box lol :P (Click the covers to get redirected to the Goodreads page).
