Hey guys! I have a different kind of post for you today and that is this months Fairyloot unboxing! As soon as I saw the theme and some of the items that they were going to be including, I had to get it! This months box was absolutely amazing and I am so stoked that I got it! I will link up to all of the shops featured, so definitely go and check those out 🙂
NOTE: This is an unboxing post, so there will be spoilers for the items in this months (November) box – Ladies that Slay.
I love the artwork for the spoiler cards that they do each month!
The First item in the box was this exclusive Brightest Witch candle from Flick the Wick. It is based on Hermione from Harry Potter and the scent is Lily, Vanilla, Musk, Raspberry and Citrus. I absolutely LOVE the bright colour of the candle! I’ve always wanted to try out Flick the Wick and I am definitely going to have to look into getting some of their candles!
The next item in the box is an Exclusive Blue’s Brew tea created by Bookish Teas. This tea was inspired by Blue Sargent from the Raven Boys series (which I have yet to read!). This tea is fruit with Blackberries and currents and smells divine. I’m not a huge tea drinker, but I am definitely going to go out and buy a tea strainer so that I can try this tea! It also has edible glitter in it.
The next item (and the one I was most excited about) was an exclusive book sleeve designed by Aunjuli Art. This book comfortably fits a large paperback or small hardback (like this months books!) and has a pattern of Swords and books. The inside lining is also waterproof – which is going to come in useful with the most recent weather! I have always wanted a book sleeve and I am so excited about owning this beautiful sleeve.
The next item is an exclusive Fire is Catching Badge, inspired by Katniss Everdeen, designed by Literary Emporium. I like the fact that this is an easy iron on badge, but I am not entirely sure where to put it yet, because I don’t really own anything that I can put a badge on – it’s definitely beautiful, though!
The next item is an exclusive Fight Darkness sticker, designed by Reverie and Ink, and quotes An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. Again, not entirely sure where I want to put this, but I do have a lot of options.
We also received a couple of swag pins from The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli and This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada – both of which are on my TBR.
The first book included in this months box is an ARC of Furyborn by Claire Legrand. This book was definitely bigger than I first thought it was going to be, but I am extremely excited about getting to this! This is set to release next May and is being released by Sourcebooks Fire.
When assassins ambush her best friend, the crown prince, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing her ability to perform all seven kinds of elemental magic. The only people who should possess this extraordinary power are a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light and salvation and a queen of blood and destruction. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven trials to test her magic. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.
A thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a mere fairy tale to bounty hunter Eliana Ferracora. When the Undying Empire conquered her kingdom, she embraced violence to keep her family alive. Now, she believes herself untouchable–until her mother vanishes without a trace, along with countless other women in their city. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain on a dangerous mission and discovers that the evil at the heart of the empire is more terrible than she ever imagined.
As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world–and of each other.
The other book we got in this months box was The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli. This is an exclusive Fairyloot edition, which has silver foil, rather than the gold of the normal edition. This also came with a letter from the author and a signed book plate. This is the first instalment in a YA Fantasy series and features Dragons – So I am definitely excited about getting this one!
In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be darkness—and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood and moonlight. The destroyer. The death-bringer.
These are the legends that Asha, daughter of the king of Firgaard, has grown up learning in hushed whispers, drawn to the forbidden figures of the past. But it isn’t until she becomes the fiercest, most feared dragon slayer in the land that she takes on the role of the next Iskari—a lonely destiny that leaves her feeling more like a weapon than a girl.
Asha conquers each dragon and brings its head to the king, but no kill can free her from the shackles that await at home: her betrothal to the cruel commandant, a man who holds the truth about her nature in his palm. When she’s offered the chance to gain her freedom in exchange for the life of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard, she finds that there may be more truth to the ancient stories than she ever could have expected. With the help of a secret friend—a slave boy from her betrothed’s household—Asha must shed the layers of her Iskari bondage and open her heart to love, light, and a truth that has been kept from her.
That’s it for this box! I absolutely loved this month’s items and I cannot wait to use some them. Fairyloot have definitely outdone themselves and the packers did a great job of getting all the items in the box!
