I'm getting a little quicker at getting these unboxings up! Still not as quick as I'd like but ah well. The boxes are always worth the wait and I say it every time but I think this might be my favourite box to date. Every month these boxes get better and better. This month's Fairyloot theme was Broody Banter. Which is also one of the tropes or features of YA that I enjoy the most. And I've even read some of the books represented in this box. It's a halfway to Christmas miracle.

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

This book has been on my radar for agesss. I have Margaret's first book An Enchantment of Ravens and just haven't yet picked it up though I know I'll love it. I was determined to get my hands on Sorcery of Thorns too and luckily it arrived with Fairyloot this month!

**Taken from the back of the book**

All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery—magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom from their power.

Then an act of sabotage releases the library’s most dangerous grimoire. Elisabeth’s desperate intervention implicates her in the crime, and she is torn from her home to face justice in the capital. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but the world along with them.

As her alliance with Nathaniel grows stronger, Elisabeth starts to question everything she’s been taught—about sorcerers, about the libraries she loves, even about herself. For Elisabeth has a power she has never guessed, and a future she could never have imagined.

As pretty as the reading journals are I never really use them. I am very tempted to get the prints out of this though. They're all so beautiful. The layout of the journal was designed by Fiction Tea Designs and the prints were by @monolimeart. There are so many different characters in here to name them all but a few of my favourites have appeared. Manon from the Throne of Glass series, Holland from A Darker Shade of Magic, and Aeduan from Bloodwitch.

Fairyloot

Oh, I did make such a ridiculous noise when I saw this pin. It's Bloodwitch themed but more specifically Aeduan themed. Yep, one of my favourite author's books now has a pin. This was designed by @ironandinkdesigns. You know this is going straight on my jacket.

More tea! I have a cupboard full of subscription box teas now. I really need to start drinking them.... This one is based on To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo which I read and loved. It's made by @thetealeafco.

Fairyloot

Please don't disown me but I've never watched Avatar the Last Airbender... I really want to and I know I'd love it. This stunning print was created by Taratjah.

Fairyloot

New tarot card characters! These ones feature Albus Dumbledore and Draco Malfoy which were designed by @loweana.art.

Fairyloot

This iron-on patch made me giggle so much, I didn't read it properly at first and my parents pointed it out and I burst out laughing! It was designed by @bookmarkd.tattoos and is themed around Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Cycle. I've read the first book in this series but it was sooo long ago!

Fairyloot

These socks are just so damn comfy and of course super cute. They were designed by Team Fairyloot and are based around the Lux series by Jennifer L Armentrout. I've read some of her books but not this series and I really want to.

Fairyloot

My woodmark collection is decidedly impressive now...this one was designed by @stellabookishart and is stunning. I've never heard of the book this one is based on either. It's based on Fire Falling by Elise Kova, the second book in the Air Awakens series. I know the author but had no idea about the book.

Fairyloot

I can't wait when I have enough room to have a proper library. I'd have hollow book boxes like this one dotted throughout the shelves. On the inside, it's just as beautiful with drawings and quotes of and by different characters. It's awesome. It was designed by @noverantale.

Fairyloot

I love these paper clips, they almost look like enamel pins. They were designed by Taratjah as well and feature characters from some of the most banterific books. Jacks from Caraval, Jace from the Mortal Instruments and Rowan from Throne of Glass.

Fairyloot

Last but by no means least we have the spoiler card and bookmark as usual by Taratjah. The character art on the letter from Margaret was by @arz28. This month we also got a postcard advertising Shadow and Fame by Mindee Arnett. The first book in this series was also a Fairyloot book.

So that was my June Fairyloot Unboxing!

Have you tried any bookish subscription boxes before?
