Books Fairy Loot Unboxings

September Fairyloot

October 8, 2018

I'll admit it, I adore romance. Whether its in films, real life or when its done well, in books. I'm a hopeless romantic and always will be. There's something so pure about it, so sweet. Star-Crossed Swoons couldn't be more perfect for me! Over a year later I'm still amazed at the quality of the items and how much thought goes into each and every box. Now even the books are physically signed, usually have exclusive covers and sometimes have sprayed edges. SPRAYED EDGES. God knows what the boxes will look like this time next year!

The curse of the bookseller/blogger strikes again. I already had a copy of Mirage sent to me and was super excited to read it. Don't get me wrong, I'm still thrilled and can't wait to sink my teeth into it. All I can remember is that it's Moroccan...I think. But the Fairyloot cover is stunning. AND PURPLE SPRAYED EDGES.

**Taken from the book**

The Crown of Dihya had been stripped from me, my face changed, my body broken.

But I was not a slave and I was not a spare. I was my mother's daughter, and I would survive and endure. I would find my way back home.

In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, sixteen-yea`r-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation, and of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day she, too, will have adventures and travel beyond her isolated moon.

But when adventure comes, it's not what she expects. She is kidnapped and taken in secret to the royal palace. There, she discovers she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double to appear in public, ready to die in her place.

As Amani is forced into her new role, she can't help but enjoy the palace's beauty - and her time with the princess' fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear, and she soon realises that one wrong move could lead to her death...

I love Geeky Clean/Nerd Poured Candles their products are always so amazing. The Edward and Bella candle is no different. Talk about a throwback! I remember reading these books so many times when I was younger. I was obsessed with the films and to this day I remain a loyal Team Jacob member....hehe. This candle smells of Crisp Apple and Pine, and is just beautiful. It reminds me of a frosty autumn morning.

 

ACOTAR SHOE LACES. Omg yes. I adore these. They are going straight onto my Vans. These awesome shoelaces were designed by Fiction Tea designs and feature insignias of each court of Pyrthian. I'd love this print on a scarf.

Yes more notebooks I won't write in because I'm scared of ruining them with my doctor like handwriting. Based on Roshani Chokshi's The Star-Touched Queen and designed by Read at Midnight.

The most gorgeous apron ever, inspired by Laini Taylor's Strange the Dreamer and designed by Literary Life co. I don't cook, I bake but not often. If anyone could use this it'd probably be Sam. Who is, by the way, the most incredible cook. Reason 123 why I am very lucky with him. The first time he cooked at mine he covered himself in sauce...It was impressive. He'd been in the house less than five minutes. Admittedly, I've had my fair share of food and culinary disasters...

Bookish pins make me so happy. I still haven't read the any of the shadow hunter books. I will do I promise. This pin was designed by Fiction Tea.

These matches are brilliant. I've been fighting forever trying to light some of he candles that have burnt far down and contorting my hand into the jar to try and light them. Long matches? Genius. And the packaging is adorable and once again deigned by Fiction Tea.

Taratjah strikes again with the beautiful artwork. This set of postcards is stunning and already up on my wall. It features Julian and Emma from the Dark Artifices series, Rhysand and Feyre from ACOTAR, Cassian and Nesta also from ACOTAR, Amar and Maya from The Star Touched Queen and finally Lazlo and Sarai from Strange the Dreamer.

Bizarrely this wasn't on the spoiler card but this is a sold moisturiser created by Little Heart Gifts based on Mal and Alina from the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo.

More beautiful art on the spoiler card and bookmark from Taratjah. Then the letter from Somaiya features art of the two main characters Amani and Idris by Gabriella Bujdoso.

As for publisher swag we received a sampler of Cassie Clare's Queen of Air and Darkness, a bookmark of Tempest and Slaughter by Tamora Pierce and a Muse of Nightmares postcard also by Laini Taylor.

If you can recall there was an issue with the July Box in which a tea towel had been printed in a way that meant we needed a mirror to read it. They sent out the replacements this month. Featuring a quote from And I Darken by Kiersten White but I can't seem to find anywhere the creator. Regardless, it's lovely.

So that was my September 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,

Katie x
