Books Fairy Loot Unboxings

January Fairyloot

February 4, 2019

2019 is off to a flying start for me with new goals, a load of reading already done, a lovely little holiday and of course the first Fairyloot of the year. If this box is setting the tone for the year I can't explain how excited I am for the next 11 months of boxes...and the new special edition boxes they've recently announced. The first being themed after Finale, the third book to Caraval. January's box, however, is themed after Unbreakable Bonds.

The curse of the bookseller/blogger strikes again, I'd already ended up with an advanced copy of Circle of Shadows before the box arrived. But I'm super happy to have a finished copy, especially when it's this pretty. Once again we get a signed book with sprayed edges. Clearly, this one had been on my radar with me already having a copy but I can't fully describe what it's about... so here's the synopsis.

**Taken from the book**

Sora can move as silently as a ghost and hurl throwing stars with lethal accuracy. Her gemina, Daemon, can win any physical fight blindfolded and with an arm tied behind his back. They are apprentice warriors of the Society of Taigas—marked by the gods to be trained in magic and the fighting arts to protect the kingdom of Kichona.

As their graduation approaches, Sora and Daemon look forward to proving themselves worthy of belonging to the elite group—but in a kingdom free of violence since the Blood Rift Rebellion many years ago, it’s been difficult to make their mark. So when Sora and Daemon encounter a strange camp of mysterious soldiers while on a standard scouting mission, they decide the only thing to do to help their kingdom is to infiltrate the group. Taking this risk will change Sora’s life forever—and lead her on a mission of deception that may fool everyone she’s ever loved.

Loves, spies, and adventure abound as Sora and Daemon unravel a complex web of magic and secrets that might tear them - and their entire kingdom - apart.

I think pillows are the way to my heart. It fills me with so much joy seeing bookish pillows coating my sofa. Especially. when they're as pretty as this one. This pillow features art and a quote from Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys. Which I have read! Well...the first book....many years ago. This pillow was designed by KDP Letters and Monolimeart.

Once again we have a candle designed and made by Geeky Clean. It features Will and Jem from the Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. A series I really need to get too. Its notes are Tea and Sweet Sage. A very herbal one.

Another hot chocolate! My cupboards are filled to the brim with teas, coffees and hot chocolates from book boxes. Not that I'm complaining. It's a wonderful dilemma. This one was created by The Tea Leaf Co and is inspired by Lia and Pauline from Mary E Pearson's The Remnant Chronicles.

I say this so much but one day I'm going to treat myself to order from Ink and Wonder and forget about the shipping. Every product of theirs is stunning. The woodmarks do hold a special place in my heart....but I wouldn't mind one of their prints. This woodmark features the quote 'there is some good in this world and its worth fighting for' which is from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.

Sadly Book and Nook no longer do candles....but they've started creating other products! Namely, lip balms, among others. This month we received a lip balm from them in the scent Mint and Violet. It smells divine. It's inspired by Jules and Arsinoe from Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake.

I've already worn this headband to death. It was designed by Fiction Tea and inspired by The Dregs from Leigh Bardugo's Six of Crows.

This months tarot cards are of Feyre and Azriel from Sarah J Maas' A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

As always the month's spoiler card and bookmark were designed by Taratjah. The character art on the author letter was created by Sallteas.

As for publisher swag, we got a Postcard of One and Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Black Coats by Colleen Oakes.

So that was my January Fairyloot Unboxing!

Have you tried any bookish subscription boxes before?

What did you think? And what was your favourite item from this box?

Thank you for reading,
