I’ve been subscribed to FairyLoot since last September (thanks to my lovely sister!), and every month the box brings a little bit of joy to my day when it arrives. This month’s box is the first one I’ve had since I’ve come back from my blogging break, so I thought I’d do an unboxing post!
*If you have yet to receive your FairyLoot box this month and don’t want any spoilers, stop reading this post now!*
This month’s theme was…
This month’s FairyLoot is all about friendship. I was super excited for this box, and I’m happy to say it didn’t disappoint!
Here were the items in the box:
Fellowship Friendship Woodmark – this woodmark was created by Ink and Wonder, and was inspired by The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. I’m a fan of Tolkien’s world, and I love that the material used for this was ethically sourced!
Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate – I love salted caramel hot chocolate so much, so this is definitely one of my favourite items I’ve received from FairyLoot! It’s made by The Tea Leaf Co and is suitable for vegans, and the characters on the tin are from The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson. I haven’t read this series, and haven’t actually heard too much about it either. If you’ve read it, what did you think?
Lip Balm – created by Book and Nook, this lip balm was inspired by characters from Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. This is another item in this box based on a series that I haven’t read yet, but I read Antigoddess by Blake a few years back and loved it. I think this is a series I’ll have to check out soon!
Will & Jem Candle – I love the Shadowhunter novels by Cassandra Clare, so when I saw this candle was in this month’s box, I was so happy! It’s inspired by characters from The Infernal Devices, and was created by Geeky Clean.
FairyLoot Tarot Cards – FairyLoot have started including tarot cards in their boxes, and the first set they’ve created is inspired by Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns & Roses! The two characters featured on the cards this month were Feyre and Azriel, and the artwork is so good!
Raven Crew Cushion Cover – this cushion cover features a quote and characters from The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, and was designed by Monolimeart and KDP Letters. The art on both sides of the cover is so pretty! I’ve only read the first book in this series but I want to get around to the other novels soon.
The book of the month was…
Though I love a good, heart-warming contemporary, fantasy is my favourite genre and probably always will be. I love books that take me to another world, and whilst I probably wouldn’t have gone out and bought this book at the moment, I’m looking forward to reading it and seeing where the story takes me!
Sora can move as silently as a ghost and hurl throwing stars with lethal accuracy. Her gemina, Daemon, can win any physical fight blindfolded and with an arm tied behind his back. They are apprentice warriors of the Society of Taigas—marked by the gods to be trained in magic and the fighting arts to protect the kingdom of Kichona.
As their graduation approaches, Sora and Daemon look forward to proving themselves worthy of belonging to the elite group—but in a kingdom free of violence since the Blood Rift Rebellion many years ago, it’s been difficult to make their mark. So when Sora and Daemon encounter a strange camp of mysterious soldiers while on a standard scouting mission, they decide the only thing to do to help their kingdom is to infiltrate the group.Taking this risk will change Sora’s life forever—and lead her on a mission of deception that may fool everyone she’s ever loved.
This art print is inspired by the two main characters from Circle of Shadows, and was illustrated by @sallteas!
Overall, I really liked the items in this month’s box! I think book subscription boxes are such a wonderful idea – not just because of the wonderful merchandise included, but also because the books I’ve received so far are either ones I haven’t come across prior to the box arriving, or wouldn’t have thought I’d enjoy, and it gives me a chance to reach a broader selection of novels than I normally would.
Next month’s theme is…
