Album Unboxing #4: "7For7" by GOT7 (Biggest Unboxing YET!)

Hello, eveyone! Today I'm super excited to be bringing you all this album unboxing that I've been DYING to post but life happens and well, time doesn't like being my friend so yeah.

ANYHOO, since there's kind of a lot to show you guys I'll get right into the unboxing. If you're interested, keep reading to see all that this album contains and if you choose to do so, please check out my previous album unboxings if you would like to as well.


Okay, so, confession time. The reason why this unboxing is going to be kind of long, or at least longer than my previous ones, is simply because I bought both versions of the same album.


I honestly couldn't decide which version I wanted more, plus I wanted both versions so there. This happened. I REGRET NOTHING. Let's get into the unboxing instead of focusing on my lack of self-control.

So first, let's go over the different versions. The first one is the MAGIC HOUR and the second is the GOLDEN HOUR. I can't decide which one I like more since they both have slightly different themes and aesthetics.

They both came with a good amount of things and you know how much I love things like OMG GIMMEE.
Let's start with this version, the GOLDEN HOUR I'm assuming since it's . . . well, golden looking. I will say that right off the bat I loved the theme of this one more than the other just because who doesn't love a sunset or dusk? It's so relaxing and refreshing.

This version of the album came with these three photocards, one of which being the shape of a triangle. I'm guessing if you're able to collect all seven triangle shaped cards, they're meant to be connected since on the back, it has writing on it. There's also a faint printing of what looks to be part of the GOT7 emblem which is pretty darn cool.

Not sure if I'll ever be able to collect all seven triangle photocards but hey, it's still fun to know there's a reason to try. Anyhoo, this the end of the unboxing for the GOLDEN HOUR so let's go ahead and move onto the unboxing of the next version. If you're still reading this, THANK YOU I LOVE YOU LET'S BE BESTIES. Okay, moving on.

And here we have the MAGIC HOUR. This album's aesthetic is seriously EVERYTHING OMG. It's so pretty and calming and it makes me happy. I forgot to mention that both albums came with these cool little postcard booklets which is really satisfying to look through.

The photography for both are so pretty and magical in a sense. 

Not that I'll be sending these to anybody, I don't think I could ever bring myself to part with any of them because, you know, I'm just a TINY bit of a HUGE fan of GOT7. Just a little one, not much. Obviously.

I freaking love the theme of this version of the album. I definitely love the photography of this album more than the other even though I love both. The photography for this one is a little more contemporary with a -in-the-moment vibe to it. Sorry, I'm an art student, I notice these things and describe them with strange words. 

BUT YOU GET WHAT I MEAN, RIGHT? Yes? Okay, thank you.

This album came with these three photocards, including the triangle shaped one. I plan on using the triangle ones as bookmarks since they're just too cool looking. Hopefully, I don't end up losing them or damaging them because then I would cry. Like a lot. More than I did while reading "Allegiant" and "The Fault In Our Stars."

And now for the photocard packs! I seriously love opening these little packets, it's just so satisfying.

As always, these were double sided and I got one with both albums. Now that I have all these photo cards, I seriously need to figure out a way to use them instead of letting my stack of photocards continue to grow. And grow. And grow. 

Excuse me while I cry in shame.

Okay I'm good, let's actually see these photocards instead of making you read more of my babble that no one has time for.


     Okay, no words needed. 

And last but certainly not least, the posters as the finale. I will say that it always makes me laugh a little at how huge these posters are. I've only ever received one actual small poster . . . and it's not even a poster, more like a flyer meant to be placed in the album booklet.

One of these days I should do a haul of all of my posters, it's almost as big as my book collection, I swear.

I think this one is my favorite of the two since it's just so pleasing to look at . . . for a number of reasons and not just because of the actual scenery in the background.

I would love to hang this one on my wall should I ever get over my weirdness about posters. Cross your fingers because my posters are so sad in their little box. 

So that is it for this album unboxing! I'm sorry if this post was whoa long and if you took the time to read it all, I applaud you. I've been horrible, positively HORRIBLE at keeping up with writing posts, reading my favorite blogs and commenting on their posts so hopefully, I can get back to being active in that way. It will take some time but I'm confident I can eventually get into some sort of groove with it all. Anyhoo, thank y'all so much for reading if you did, and please leave me a comment on what your current favorite song is, whether it be a new release or a throwback track. 

Read on, bookworms! See you in the next chapter!

September Book Haul and Wrap-Up!

Happy October, everyone! I've been having a good month so far and I hope all of yours have been super great! I'm actually just a tiny bit annoyed at the time that I'm writing this since I spent an HOUR typing everything up and adding in all the pictures and links . . . and it all got deleted.

Sometimes the refresh button TRULY hates me.

Anyhoo, I managed to type everything out again and it was actually quicker this time around? No idea how that happened but I'm glad and rolling with it. I had a pretty good month of book-buying, however, because of all the adulting I've been doing (SOMEONE SEND HELP) I've barely had time to read much of anything like blogs or comments, let alone books.

I'm going to try my very hardest to manage my time wisely and set aside that time for some relaxing with reading. I hope to post at least one post every week whether it be bookish or not so be sure to stay tuned if you're interested in seeing what I have planned for my next few posts. Now, without further ado, here's my book haul and wrap-up!

Album Unboxing #3: "Love Yourself 承 'Her'" - BTS

Welp, I failed as a blogger.

HELLO, EVERYBODY! Yes, I've only posted TWICE this month and neither of them have been book reviews. YES, I am still alive but struggling to feel human. YES, I have failed you all *cries in dark hole*.

I do really mean it when I say I'm going to be more active on my blog and continue trying my hardest to post more often, however, this month has been exhausting, to say the least, so please be patient with me! It seriously means the world.

Now that my apologies are out of the way, let's focus on the actual point of this post: THE ALBUM. You have no idea how excited I am for this post, like seriously, I'm legit dying.


Okay, so, I'm DEAD excited for this album OMG. You've got no IDEA. I've been waiting for this album for about a month since I pre-ordered it before there was even a cover art. I was basically sold a promise and I was like "TAKE ALL MY MONEY!!".

Anyhoo, the album finally came (!!!!!!!) and I'm so excited to unbox it for you guys! Even though I've already opened up everything and already know what it came with and, well, it's all opened by this point because there are pictures of everything . . . you get the point.

Let's move on.

So first up, can we just talk about the cover? LIKE SO MUCH PRETTY. I love me some simple covers for albums and books, it's just very satisfying and I find it so pretty in all its simplicity. Anyhoo, the little letters and the flower is engraved with holographic amazingness and it makes me so happy. I love holographic anything so there's that.

It's also on the CD itself and it looks so pretty, I'M DYING.

The album also came with a little sheet of stickers which I plan on making into a phone case and by the time this post is being written, I'll have already made the phone case and I'll probably be taking a picture of it and posting it to my Instagram so follow me there if you're curious as to how it turned out.

It also came with that little book thing that I have no idea what it is since I don't know the language, BUT I'm sure it's interesting.

It also came with a poster so I'll be showing that later in this post so stay tuned and keep reading.

The album also came with photo cards, as always, and like always, they're currently sitting on my shelf with the rest of the thousand photocards I've gotten from other albums because I have NO IDEA what to do with them. Yay.

These are also double sided . . . like YES, THANK YOU.

This album also came with a "free gift" which I assumed was another photocard, which it was, so yay me for being psychic. I love getting little free gifts even if I know what they're going to be.

I probably shouldn't hope for extra photo cards since my collection is too big already and just wasting away in a dark little corner, but you know, whatevs.

And finally, the big finale, THE POSTER. Just like the photo cards, I have too many posters already but they're all safely kept in a box on my bookshelf. I'm so weird with posters, luckily one of my best friends related to me and I no longer felt alone in the world.

Anyhoo, I still love having posters of my favorite groups and bands even if I don't actually hang them up on my wall. Maybe one day I'll get over my weirdness . . . but let's be real, that's never gonna happen. MOVING ON.

So that's pretty much it for this album unboxing! I'm pretty much obsessed with every single song on this album, it's a little bit concerning. Like seriously, the first track gives me LIFE.

And, apparently, there are two bonus tracks to the album that are only on the physical album so that made me feel a little special when I found that out. Like, yay me, value the little things.

No idea at all when the next album unboxing will be, probably either at the end of the month or even in November, but we'll see. There are plenty of albums I plan on ordering so I guess stay tuned?

Previous Unboxings:

Alright y'all, so that's it! I really hope you all enjoyed this post and please stay tuned for my future posts, the next one will be my wrap-up and haul for the month of September and hopefully, a few reviews will roll out as the month goes on. Read on, bookworms! See you in the next chapter!
