I love it when my FairyLoot box arrives – it brings a little bit of unexpected joy to my day. The book in this box was actually one I was looking at buying, so it arrived just in time before I did.
Nine-tailed Fox Mug Rug – this fabric coaster was inspired by the featured book in this month’s box, which I’ll be talking about later on in this post. This will definitely be on display on my bookcase.
Bravado Coin Purse – I haven’t read The Girl At Midnight by Melissa Grey, but it’s been on my TBR list for years. I really like the colours and art on this purse!
Diagon Alley Enamel Necklace – I haven’t actually read the Harry Potter series, but the design of this necklace is nice.
Princess of Disi Candle – I think this could be the nicest smelling bookish candle I own! I want to burn it because it smells so nice, but I also don’t want to use it because then it’ll be gone? It’s a hard life for a bookworm, it really is. This candle was inspired by A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer.
Shadowhunters Ceramic Mug – I say this whenever I’m given the chance, and I’ll say it again: I love Cassie Clare’s Shadowhunter world. The Mortal Instruments is the reason I became a bookworm, and it’s a series that will forever hold a special place in my heart. I didn’t manage to take a great photo of it, but the mug has characters from all three Shadowhunter series!
Pin Banner – this item was inspired by Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series, which is a series I loved so much growing up. It’s the reason why I love Greek mythology so much (if you have any recommendations for books that are based on Greek mythology, please leave them in the comments!).
Tarot Cards – I really like the tarot cards that FairyLoot include in their boxes (and the art on the Luna Lovegood card is so pretty!).
Fortune Cookie – there was also a fortune cookie in this month’s box, but unfortunately it magically disappeared before I had the chance to take photos…okay, I munched it as soon as I saw it. The quote I got for my fortune was from a Sarah J. Maas book:
Names are not important. It’s what lies inside of you that matters.
This month’s featured book was…
I love the cover of this book! I’ve only heard good things about this book so far, so I’m looking forward to starting it soon.
Eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung has a secret–she’s a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox who must devour the energy of men in order to survive. Because so few believe in the old tales anymore, and with so many evil men no one will miss, the modern city of Seoul is the perfect place to hide and hunt.
But after feeding one full moon, Miyoung crosses paths with Jihoon, a human boy, being attacked by a goblin deep in the forest. Against her better judgment, she violates the rules of survival to rescue the boy, losing her fox bead–her gumiho soul–in the process.
Jihoon knows Miyoung is more than just a beautiful girl–he saw her nine tails the night she saved his life. His grandmother used to tell him stories of the gumiho, of their power and the danger they pose to humans. He’s drawn to her anyway.
With murderous forces lurking in the background, Miyoung and Jihoon develop a tenuous friendship that blossoms into something more. But when a young shaman tries to reunite Miyoung with her bead, the consequences are disastrous . . . forcing Miyoung to choose between her immortal life and Jihoon’s.
