Receiving and opening my FairyLoot box is one of my favourite days each month, and September’s box was no different. 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 September theme was “All That Sass”.
The first item I saw in the box was the Exclusive High Warlock Candle by In The Wick of Time. I’ve loved every candle the company have included in FairyLoot boxes so I was super happy to see another one. Inspired by Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments, the candle has scents of sandalwood, incense and lavender and I can’t wait to burn it.
Ok so the next item just might be possibly be my favourite item that FairyLoot have ever included. When I pulled it out of the box and realised what it was, I audibly gasped and had to run and tell the closest person to me (it was my mum, she didn’t quite share my enthusiasm). It was the amazing Exclusive Rattle the Stars beanie by Reverie and Ink inspired by one of my favourite series by my favourite author: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Roll on colder weather so I can wear my new favourite accessory!
I’m in love with the Solemnly Swear magnet created exclusively by Ink and Wonder Designs, which was inspired by everybody’s favourite red headed twins. You can never have enough tote bags, and I love FairyLoot for providing a constant supply. The Exclusive Nonsense Tote Bag designed by Miss Phi is inspired by Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices. I must confess (that my loneliness… sorry) that I’m yet to read this series, but the bag is beautiful and I’m looking forward to using it.
The next two items are perfect for us bookworms and book bloggers if you ask me. The Exclusive Bad Ideas Notebook by Alexis Lampley was inspired by Nikolai Lantsov from the Grisha trilogy and I’ll definitely be using this for future list making. It’s also very fitting as it has just been announced that Nikolai is now getting his own story which is so exciting! FairyLoot also included Hot Chocolate for Sassy Demi-Gods by Brontie & Co inspired by Percy Jackson. I haven’t read these books but the hot chocolate sure does sound delicious, plus its vegan and dairy free!
The last items before we move onto the book were two stunning pieces of artwork created exclusively by Taratjah of Lila Bard from A Darker Shade of Magic and Carswell Thorne from the Lunar Chronicles. I’m always in awe of Taratjah’s work and these are no different.
Occasionally I’ll have a couple of ideas as to what the book may be, but this time I wasn’t so sure, so I was looking forward to unboxing it. This month’s book was Even The Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett. FairyLoot describe the story as a “page turner filled with adventure, romance and plot twists” so I can’t wait to read it! Included with the book was a signed bookplate and letter from the author as usual, which I always love.
Just like every month, there were a couple of extras thrown in too, such as a chapter sampler of Gentleman’s Gide to Vice and Virtue which I’ve heard amazing things about, and a bookmark from one of my favourite books this year, Tower of Dawn. Every month I’m blown away by the hard work that Anissa and Michael put in to their boxes. If you’re thinking about buying one, go ahead and do it! You won’t regret it – promise.
