Welcome back to ANOTHER Fairy Loot unboxing! If you don’t already know, I now also have a YouTube channel where I have also filmed an unboxing as well as writing this blog post. So, for this month, the theme was ‘All That Sass’ and when the theme was announced last month, I genuinely had no clue what the book was going to be, so I was super excited to see what it was and what amazing goodies I would receive in this months box!
Let’s get on with the unboxing…
Another Fairy Loot box means another month of gorgeous artwork! The artwork for this month is absolutely amazing and sums up the book and theme perfectly. On the back of this card is all of the information about each item, but I never look at this as it contains spoilers as to what is in the box, and I WANT TO BE SURPRISED!
The first thing that I saw in the box was this beautiful candle from In the Wick of Time. Even though the candle itself is plain white, the smell is amazing. It has this clean smell that reminds me of when you’ve just washed your clothes. I can’t wait to use it! This High Warlock candle was inspired by Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.
The second thing that I saw in the box was this Vegan Hot Chocolate which was brought to us by Brontie & Co. which is a vegan chocolate company. This hot chocolate was inspired by Percy Jackson from the eponymous series by Rick Riordan. I don’t really like the taste of vegan food that much, but fingers crossed that this hot chocolate will taste nice, but I’m excited to drink it
A BEANIE! This is the first time that Fairy Loot has included a beanie in their boxes and let me tell you, I AM IN LOVE! When I was filming my Fairy Loot unboxing for my YouTube channel, I saw this beanie and just put it straight on and then wore it for the rest of the video. The material is gorgeous, and it has a pom pom on the top! Sewn onto the front it ‘Rattle the Stars’ which inspired by Celaena Sardothien from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas.
One can never have enough notepads! I’ve lost count of how many that I have, but I don’t even care. I love them too much. This gorgeous notebook was designed by Alexis Lampley who is the creator of the NerdyPost book subscription box. I’ve never actually had the box before, but it looks absolutely amazing!! This notebook was inspired by Nikolai Lantsov from the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
I have recently turned one of my bedroom walls into an ‘artwork’ wall, where I stick all of the artwork that I receive from Fairy Loot boxes. Admittedly, when I saw these two artworks, I had no idea who they were. With a quick reference to the spoiler card, I learnt that they were the artwork of Carswell Thorne (left) who is from the Luna Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, and then Delilah Bard (right) who is from the Shades of Magic trilogy by V.E Schwab. Once I read both of the books that these characters are from, they can be stuck on my wall with the rest of the artwork!
Even though I’ve already read and reviewed The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee, I was so happy to receive a chapter sampler of it in the Fairy Loot box. I just love this book so much, so anything to do with it makes me extremely happy. Fairy Loot included the chapter sampler due to the main character of the novel – Monty – to be an extremely sassy person!
I’m yet to read any of the Throne of Glass books by Sarah J. Maas, but I still brought Tower of Dawn when it was released because well… Why not? Fairy Loot included a promotional bookmark of Tower of Dawn in this months box.
Ink and Wonder are frequently featured in Fairy Loots boxes because of their amazing wooden, watercolour bookmarks. However, this month, Ink and Wonder designed a GORGEOUS magnet that says “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good”, and of course, this is inspired by Fred and George Weasley from the Harry Potter series.
As soon as I saw this tote bag in the Fairy Loot box, I knew straight away that it was designed by Miss Phi. Her designs are – like Ink and Wonder – featured often in Fairy Loots boxes, and everything that she designs is just pure magic and amazing. This gorgeous tote bag is inspired by Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare.
AND THE BOOK OF THE MONTH IS: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett, the first book in a series. The second book has already got a title, and it’s called All the Wandering Light. To be completely honest, I have never heard of this book before, but after reading the blurb, it actually sounds really interesting. Apparently, this cover is supposed to be an exclusive cover design to the Fairy Loot box (I think it’s supposed to have exclusive foiling?), but when I looked on Google Images, the ‘normal’ book also has the exact same cover? So I don’t really know what’s going on with that. If anyone could clear this up for me, I would be extremely grateful.
Kamzin has always dreamed of becoming one of the Emperor’s royal explorers, the elite climbers tasked with mapping the wintry, mountainous Empire and spying on its enemies. She knows she could be the best in the world, if only someone would give her a chance.
But everything changes when the mysterious and eccentric River Shara, the greatest explorer ever known, arrives in her village and demands to hire Kamzin—not her older sister Lusha, as everyone had expected—for his next expedition. This is Kamzin’s chance to prove herself—even though River’s mission to retrieve a rare talisman for the emperor means climbing Raksha, the tallest and deadliest mountain in the Aryas. Then Lusha sets off on her own mission to Raksha with a rival explorer who is determined to best River, and Kamzin must decide what’s most important to her: protecting her sister from the countless perils of the climb or beating her to the summit.
The challenges of climbing Raksha are unlike anything Kamzin expected—or prepared for—with avalanches, ice chasms, ghosts, and even worse at every turn. And as dark secrets are revealed, Kamzin must unravel the truth of their mission and of her companions—while surviving the deadliest climb she has ever faced.
As always, Fairy Loot included the Fairyscoop newsletter which includes an interview with the author of Even the Darkest Stars and also the information for next months box (which sounds A-MAZ-ING!), and then they also include a bookmark that has the artwork of the month printed on the front and then ‘Fairy Loot / September 2017 / All That Sass’ printed on the back!
Thank you to Fairy Loot for another month of bookish goodness. I can’t wait for next months box which is themed Villainous and the November box theme has already been announced and it’s Ladies That Slay! The next two boxes are just going to be AWESOME! I know what the book is going to be for next month and I also have a very good feeling about what the November book is!
