Unboxing – Anderwereld Mystery Box

It has almost been a year since I last did an unboxing post on here. One could give a multiple of reasons as to why but it all boils down to me not liking most of the themes and not having been interested in the potential books in them. This has slightly changed at the moment.

When I saw an unboxing on Ogma of a mystery box from Anderwereld I could not resist glancing at the site and before I knew it I had ordered one of them.


Anderwereld is a Dutch second-hand web shop that sells mostly fantasy and sci-fi. They also have stands at various fantasy festivals around the Netherlands. The one thing that drew me to order from them and to try out their mystery box was the variety. In the Dutch section they have two different children month boxes and one normal month box. This is with a new book.

But next to that they also offer mystery boxes with second-hand books with different total prices. I opted to choose for the English Fantasy second-hand mystery box for 15 Euro, the lowest amount for a box. After ordering they send me an email to ask me my taste in boosk so they could find the right books to put in the box. Everything about that made me happy.

So here we go.


The Box.


Watch Out! Fun Mail.


A message thanking me for the order.


Second glance into the box.


So before getting to the books I pulled out these little extras. Some flyers, tea, chocolate eggs and two packages that I unwrapped below.


Oh my gosh I am in love with this keychain. *.* I let out a little squeal when I saw it.


And this was in the other small package. I think it is a book mark? In any case it is very pretty and fits well on my bookshelves with some other wings. ๐Ÿ™‚


Here are two packaged books I pulled out. Exciting!


First up is Open Sesame from Tom Holt. I’ve heard of Tom Hold before from my friend who als recommended Terry Pratchett to me so I was quite pleased to see his name.
Out of Time by John Marsden is a tiny, thin little sci-fi book from what I can tell. It seems like a great inbetween book.


But wait, there are two more!


Shadowfall by James Clemens seems rather interesting. It is the eyes on the cover I tell you! And lastly is The Diamond Throne by David Eddings which I think is the one I am most excited about. Especially after seeing on a quick glance on Goodreads that some of my friends there have liked this one a lot.


An overview of everything.


So this was quite the box! I did not expect there to be four books in there or two pretty goodies like that as well. So yes this box was well worth my money! To all of the Dutch people I would highly recommend giving Anderwereld a look. Next to these mystery boxes they of course sell second-hand books alone as well.

    1. Right? They also offer a month box with a new book but I was more drawn to this variant and they ask you questions to see what would fit with you which just is a lot of fun. ๐Ÿ˜€


  1. That Open Sesame cover… ๐Ÿ˜

    It is a book mark! I have one kind of like it. You can hang a charm from the little hole. Mine had an ink bottle charm, but it fell off. I know I still have it, somewhere, ha ha. I should hang another charm from it until I find it. ๐Ÿ˜ That keychain is adorable. ๐Ÿ’œ

    It was a good value. Your photos are wonderful, too. ๐Ÿ’Ÿ
