Hey guys! Welcome to the first post of the year!!!! Happy 2019 everyone!
But… It’s still time for the last Fairyloot released in 2018!
The December’s theme was Dragons!!! FairyLoot is an amazing YA bookish subscription box that I would highly recommend getting.
If you wanna check out what this box included, just keep reading! I will show photos of the items, information on them and some of my thoughts!
Dragons – December 2018
So this is all the box included. Now for each item…
This month’s book is Fire & Heist by Sarah Beth Durst. Also, this book is signed!
Here’s the synopsis:
Leading your first heist is a major milestone in Sky Hawkin’s family—even more so than learning to talk, walk, or do long division. It’s a chance to gain power and acceptance within society. But stealing your first treasure can be complicated—especially when you’re a wyvern, a human capable of transforming into a dragon.
Embarking on a life of crime is never easy, and Sky’s mission uncovers deep secrets about the mother who recently went missing, the real reason her boyfriend broke up with her, and a valuable jewel that could restore her family’s wealth and rank in their community.
With a handpicked crew by her side, Sky knows she has everything she needs to complete her first heist—and get back the people she loves in the process. But instead, she ends up discovering a dark truth about were-dragon society—a truth that is more valuable and dangerous than gold or jewels could ever be.
With the book, we got a beautiful illustration on the other side of the letter from the author. It’s so absolutely stunning!! I freaking LOVE IT! It was designed by Taratjah and represents Sky, our main character!
Also, there will be happening a readalong for this book on January 7th. The schedule will be posted on their Instagram and Twitter if you want to join!
Also, here is the book signed and the letter from the author!
As for the Other Boook we got:
We also got an ARC edition of The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson. This will only be released in 9th of July 2019.
Here’s the synopsis:
Eragon meets And I Darken in this thrilling new fantasy debut that follows a fallen princess as she ignites a rebellion to bring back the magical elemental crows that were taken from her people.
In the tropical kingdom of Rhodaire, magical, elemental Crows are part of every aspect of life…until the Illucian empire invades, destroying everything.
That terrible night has thrown Princess Anthia into a deep depression. Her sister Caliza is busy running the kingdom after their mother’s death, but all Thia can do is think of all she has lost.
But when Caliza is forced to agree to a marriage between Thia and the crown prince of Illucia, Thia is finally spurred into action. And after stumbling upon a hidden Crow egg in the rubble of a rookery, she and her sister devise a dangerous plan to hatch the egg in secret and get back what was taken from them.
Here’s the beautiful cover of the ARC (Advance Reading Copy) we received. Isn’t it gorgeous?! I believe it’s the first book I own from the author, so I’m quite excited!
As for the other items…
I will start with the new addition to the Fairyloot boxes. They now have exclusive trading cards drawn in a tarot style! These were inspired by A Court of Thorns and Roses and I believe we got Amren and Cassian? They look really good, altough I must say I would have preferred them to be a bit more bright. They don’t look in the photo, but they are quite dark in my opinion, especially Cassian.
Here’s the back part of the cards. I love that they are purple!
Then, we got a Pin Flag done by Fairyloot, where we can put enamel pins, buttons and even iron-on patches. I’ve been puttng it on a banner and it’s getting quite full, so I’m quite happy with this one.
We also got a PERFECT and AMAZING Glow in the Dark Dragon Necklace done also by Fairyloot, and OMG I’m in love with it!!! Look at this:
It’s so detailed and beautiful! Plus, the wings glow in the dark! It’s just AMAZING.
Next, we got a Exclusive Book Sleve designed by Sweet Sequels and inspired by a scene in the Harry Potter series! It’s beautiful and I love the colors in it!
We also got a beautiful and Exclusive Double-sided Print designed by Diana Worak! Here’s Abraxos, which is probably one of my fav Prints ever included!
And here’s the other side, where we have Toothless!
And lastly but not least, we got a Reading Journal! This time, it’s Dragon themed and it’s for the next 6 months. This was designed by Fictiontea Designs and has artwork done by Blanca Montiel (aka Miss Phi).
Here’s some other pages from it:
*Also, in this box, was also included a Mother of Dragons Magnetic Bookmark Set designed by Taratjah. It wasn’t in some of the boxes tho, but it will, according to Fairyloot, be coming soon.*
Here’s another overall view of the items:
This box was pretty awesome. My fav was probably the necklace, the beautiful print of Abraxos and the book sleve… Difficult to say really.
Next month’s theme will be…
We’re so excited to reveal the epic theme for January and it is… UNBREAKABLE BONDS
This month’s theme is all about epic friendships! We love it when books have unbreakable bonds between characters with friendships that you totally root for (and it’s always a bonus when the jokes between them are on point!).
There will be items inspired by The Raven Boys, The Remnant Chronicles, The Lord of the Rings, The Infernal Devices, Three Dark Crowns and Six of Crows. And the best part? NONE of the items in this box are paper items!
For now, we are only going to reveal one item and that is a cushion cover featuring a design by @monolimeart and @kdpletters! This might be one of our favourite cushion covers ever – one side has artwork and the other has a beautiful quote! We cannot wait for you to see it.
The book we are featuring is a fantastic story filled with magic-wielding ninjas, betrayal, epic friendships and more. You’ll fall in love with these characters from page one and won’t want to leave this beautifully written world!
We are so thrilled to announce that the book edition in this box will have SPRAYED EDGES(just wait until you see the colour!) and will actually be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. As usual, the book will also come with a letter from the author and exclusive character art on the reverse.
For more information on that box, you can check it out here. The boxes are now available!
When they are sold out, you can still get some at the beginning of each month tho (normally day 3). If you missed them, don’t worry! Each box is amazing and I’m sure you will be as happy with the next one as you would with this one! Also, make sure you check out their Instagram, they always post there the new themes!
I hope you guys enjoyed this unboxing!
