Hello one, hello all. Today I bring you a very exciting post – an unboxing! And not just any old unboxing but an unboxing of November’s Fairyloot box focused on the theme ‘Ladies That Slay’. Awesome, right?
For those who don’t know, Fairyloot is a UK-based subscription box with a monthly theme which the products of center around. Boxes contain a new YA fantasy release and 4-6 bookish goodies and each box is so beautifully packed you won’t want to ruin the prettiness by unwrapping it! Boxes frequently feature signed bookplate and a letter from the author, as well the beautifully designed Fairyscoop newsletter – even the packing list containing details of all the products is carefully designed and curated. I’ve received 3 boxes so far, and have purchased another 1, and I’m constantly amazed by the care and passion which seems to go into every item in every box. Everything is so carefully selected that it feels like every single small item that is included is there for a reason and there are so much many products and editions exclusive to Fairyloot that it has very quickly became one of my favourite bookish things.
After an extremely successful October box centred around Villains (check out my unboxing here), when I saw that the November theme was ‘Ladies That Slay’ I was like ‘take my money now!’. Fairyloot’s release blog said it best: “Do you like leading ladies that kick butt? Ladies who fight for what they believe in and inspire you? The November ‘Ladies That Slay’ box celebrates our favourite leading ladies in YA! You’ll find items themed on Hermione Granger, Katniss Everdeen, Blue Sargent and more.” They had me at “Hermione” to be honest! But the box also promised two books – the usual newly-released YA fantasy hardback centred around the theme and an ARC of an exciting high fantasy debut scheduled to publish May 2018. I couldn’t say no to that prospect so, of course, I snapped up a box as soon as I could… and then it was just a test of my patience until it arrived!
Here’s a little peek at all the bookish goodness I found inside:
