As always, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this month’s FairyLoot box. My grandparents have even gotten in on the excitement now, as each time it gets delivered to their house and I go around to pick it up they say “oh I know you love this one, I wanted to leave it as a surprise that it had arrived”. Bless them.
FairyLoot is a “fantasy focused monthly subscription box containing a Young Adult book and some hand selected bookish goodies” as described on their website. You can commit to six or twelve month subscriptions or if you’re fast enough, you can get your hands on their single purchase boxes! The July theme was “Tricksters”.
This month FairyLoot included some awesome pieces – as usual. The Hogwarts Playing Cards will definitely be both well-used and well-loved (I’m trying to convince myself that leaving them on my Harry Potter bookshelf is not the best place for them). The Fortune Telling Kitchen Glove is another favourite of mine this month. Brought to us exclusively from FairyLoot themselves, this will be a great addition to my kitchen when I finally move out, and until then it will make a super cool decoration for my bedroom!
I only recently read Six of Crows – I know, I’m a terrible person – so I was really happy to find the Terrible Truths Watercolour Bookmark created by Lexy Olivia. It’s lovely and will be in great company in my bookmark mug. The Exclusive Harley Quinn Print by Miss Phi is incredible, and who doesn’t love art prints? GeekyClean also created an exclusive Loki Lotion which is vegan and cruelty free!
I have to say that my absolute favourite item from the July FairyLoot box is this Exclusive Sherlock Tin Mug designed by the talented Fictiontea Designs (who I had the lovely pleasure of meeting last weekend at YALC but I loved this mug before then so I’m totally not biased). It’s really good quality and looks amazing, though again, I may use it for display purposes only because I’d be gutted if I broke it! Also, mentioning YALC whilst discussing this Sherlock mug is very apt, as Benedict Cumberbatch made an appearance at the convention several times over the weekend!
The July book is the hardback edition Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody, which I wasn’t expecting and came as a nice surprise! It sounds super exciting and right up my street, so I can’t wait to read it. “A dark fantasy that is a blend of magic, murder and mayhem” set in a travelling carnival which indulges an array of dreams and desires.. yes please! Just like every month we also received a signed bookplate and letter from Amanda which I always really appreciate. I also got a glimpse of the paperback edition at YALC and it’s equally as beautiful, I totally had to restrain myself from buying that edition too!
There were also a few extra goodies included like a discount code for Behind the Pages whose shop I adore and the spoiler card which features some gorgeous artwork that I stick on my bookcase each month. This is another awesome box from FairyLoot. I’m honestly blown away each and every month by the incredible items included and the hard work that Anissa and Michael put in. If you’re thinking about buying one, go ahead and do it! You won’t regret it – promise.
