Books Fairy Loot Unboxings

October Fairyloot

November 5, 2018

I think this might be my favourite box to date. I adored everything in this box and honestly I can't quite believe how much was in here! This months theme was Beautiful Deceptions and I'm so happy about it. I had expected Fairyloot to go for a Halloween theme but I'm so glad they didn't. I love Halloween, so much, but having such seasonally themed boxes I feel sometimes limits the use of certain items in them. Oh and once again the book has sprayed edges. SPRAYED EDGES.

I'm so thrilled this was the book for this month. I tried to get hold of a copy but couldn't find one anywhere and even asked around some of my publishing friends. I'm 99% sure I squealed when I saw this. I don't know a great deal about the book but I adored Flame in the Mist and have been on the look out for some more Asian inspired fantasy. AND OH MY GOD THE COVER.

**Taken from the book**

Each year eight beautiful girls are chosen as paper girls to serve the King.

It's the highest honour they could hope for...and the most demeaning.

This year, there's a ninth. And instead of paper, she's made of fire.

Lei is a member of the Paper caste, the lowest and most persecuted class of people in Ikhaha, Ten years aim her mother was snatched by the royal guards, and her fate remains unknown. Now, the guards are back and this time it's Lei they're after - the girl with the golden eyes, whose rumoured beauty has piqued the King's interest.

Over weeks of training in the opulent but oppressive palace, Lei and the other girls learn the skills and charm that befit a King's consort. There, Lei does the unthinkable - she falls in love. Her forbidden romance becomes enmeshed with an explosive plot that threatens her world's entire way of live and Lei, still the wide-eyed country girl at heart, must decide how far she's willing to go for justice and revenge.

I adore this candle. I can't wait for this semester to be over or at least to calm down so I can read Kingdom of Ashes. I'm so so scared of spoilers. This candle is once again by Nerd Poured Candles and is named Aelin Ashryver Galathynius. It smells of Lemon Verbena and Fire and reminds me of mens citrus body wash.

These cards are gorgeous. I don't know if I want to use them of just stick some of them up somewhere. These are themed around Holly Black's the Cruel Prince and features characters on the King, Queen and Jack cards. They were designed in collaboration with both Fiction Tea and Emily Haynes.

These are so cute! I brought them with me on this weekend away. They're incredibly soft and I love the Red Queen (by Victoria Aveyard) crowns on them too. These were designed by Fairyloot themselves!

This keyring is so beautiful! I need to read The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski....if only I had the time. This stunning keyring was created by KDP Letters. I'm going to have to change up whats on my keys now....

This is by far my favourite item in the box. This also came away with me this weekend. Once again this Six of Crows inspired beanie was designed by Fiction Tea. It's super soft and so gorgeous. I'm going to be wearing this all winter.

I'm not a massive fan of flavoured teas. I'm strictly a breakfast tea kinda gal. But I will say this smells incredible, it's a green & mint tea. It's named after this month's book's character and was created by The Tea Leaf Company.

We also received these cute soft touch badges of the different Grisha orders. I'm guessing to promote King of Scars. I'll have to find a place to put all my badges and pins. They're just in a box at the moment.

As for publisher swag we received a book mark for The Poppy War, Sawkill Girls and a post card for Girls of Paper and Fire.

As always the beautiful art on the spoiler card and book mark was created by Taratjah.

I can't, however, seem to find who did the art of the author letter! Hopefully it's somewhere on Fairyloot's Instagram page.

So that was my October 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,
