I am so excited to finally be writing this post for you guys! Back in March, I read a post on Anette Reads where she unboxed this subcription box called Fairyloot and I fell in love right then and there. By the time I finally got to the site, the April box was sold out, so I put myself on the waiting list for May and here we are!
If you’re not familiar with Fairyloot, it’s a Young Adult subscription box based in London that was created by fellow bookworm and book blogger, Anissa. The boxes deal exclusively with fantasy and each month you receive a newly released YA novel (sometimes signed or with a bookplate), 4-5 bookish items dealing with the theme, and a unique buddy reading hashtag to use as you read the book.
This month’s theme was High Fantasy.
Here’s the beautiful little box in all it’s glory. It’s a tad beaten up from its journey from London, but the box is still intact and protected all of the goodies inside it perfectly.
This is what I saw upon first glance. Again, I was impressed with how nothing moved during transit. Those magical little purple worms held everything in place, haha.
I didn’t read the card right away, because I didn’t want to be spoiled for what was in the box. There were a handful of things nestled in the worms on top of the box (pictured below).
As I continued to dig, I found the book wrapped in purple tissue paper and a couple extra goodies. I love all the little trinkets that were included this month. (Sorry for the blurry picture. I don’t have anything but my phone to use and every. single. picture. was blurry. :P)
Tada! The main star of the show made an appearance! I’m actually really excited about this book after reading the note from the author.
Contents of the Box:
- Dragon Bracelet from My Clockwork Castle
- Game of Thrones Mystery Mini Funko ( I think I got Ned Stark)
- Dragon Age Sticker from SparksCrafts
- Minimalist Legolas Poster from Fairyloot
- Pastel Dragon Pocket Mirror from MelissaNettleship
- A copy of Ruined by Amy Tintera with a signed bookplate, handwritten letter, ruined bookmark, and art card from Amy.
I am super impressed with this box! It’s probably my favorite box that I’ve received since I started checking out book subscription services. The only thing that would make it even better is if it had come with tea, haha. Otherwise, there’s not a thing that I would change (except also maybe the price point, but since I’m ordering it internationally, this is kind of unavoidable). At £26.00 (not including shipping), this box can be a bit expensive once you convert it over to US dollars (it comes out to be about $37.47 before shipping) however I think it’s worth it. The items selected are so unique and fit the the theme flawlessly.
