Another month, another Fairyloot box and in my opinion, this months blew June’s out of the water (literally, because the theme was Pirates & Power!) Fairyloot is a UK-based book subscription box and each month contains a highly anticipated books and amazing bookish goodies. If you want to sign up, go here!
(It goes without saying but this post will contain spoilers so if you are still waiting for your box, we give you our full permission to click off this post.)
Here’s what we received this month:
+ A Pirate Bounty lip balm made by Geeky Clean.
This lip balm will transport you straight to a tropical island. It smells of delicious coconut and is totally clear so it will not add colour to your lips.
+ A colour-in bookmark from Behind the Pages.
If you’re a fan of colouring, you’ll love this bookmark that reads ‘Currently Reading.’ This is the first time these have been released and I’m so happy to have got my own. Neither of us use bookmarks but being able to colour it yourself is really tempting.
+ A bookish tote bag by Alice in Wonderbookland.
The perfect thing to carry your books in. With an illustration of a ship and the tag, ‘I Ship It,’ this fits perfectly with this month’s theme. It’s a cute little size and very minimalist. Will definitely stop me from breaking my backs carrying too many books!
+ Frostblood and Fireblood bath bomb from Geeky Clean.
As soon as I got this, I rushed to run myself a bath. Upon placing it in the water, colours burst everywhere. I felt like Daenerys Targaryen as I stepped in. These are amazing products – they left no stains on either my skin or my bath.
+ A Funko keychain.
Probably one of my favourite things in this box. We received the Daenerys Targaryen version but Jon Snow versions were sent out also seeing as they are the song of ice and fire! Which did you get?
+ An ARC copy of Frostblood by Elly Blake.
This book isn’t going to be released until 2017 but Fairyloot kindly sent out early copies – you will either receive the Fire or Frost cover. We both got Fire which fits us perfectly. We will post a full review of this book when we’ve both finished it.
+ A Treasure Island notebook by Museums & Galleries.
This beautiful gold foil notebook is the perfect notebook that you can fill with your adventures. It’s the perfect size and even looks like the book itself by the cover.
The main book we received this month is a tale of folklore and pirates. It seems like the perfect new fantasy novel and we’re excited to get into it. We also got a personalised letter and postcard from the author and each book is signed and dedicated. Definitely a book we will treasure (no pun intended.)
Next month’s theme is ‘Dark Deeds’ and is perfect for those who love an antihero. Becky has ordered this box so look forward to another unboxing in August.
