January 2018 FairyLoot Unboxing

Before I get into unboxing this January 2018’s FairyLoot box, let me begin with a bit of a delayed unboxing post, because with all the craziness in December, I totally forgot to officially unbox the December “Oh So Regal” FairyLoot Box! So, here’s a quick unboxing photo, because (as always) this box was fabulous! It included a Disney Prince inspired candle (create by A Court of Candles), a Full-Sized Disney Royalty Funko Pop, Book of the Month Everless by Sara Holland, and lots of other bookish goodies, including a key chain, pencil case, and notebook!

 

I would also like to note that this month’s unboxing (which I am so excited for because I adore this box) will be my last FairyLoot unboxing for at least a few months. Even though these boxes are often the highlight of my month, I’ve decided to suspend my subscription for financial reasons – but I can’t wait until I’m able to become a subscriber again!

So what is FairyLoot?

FairyLoot is a monthly book subscription box that specializes in Young Adult Fantasy books, based out of London, England. Recent themes include Villainous (October 2017)All That Sass (September 2017), and Otherworlds (August 2017). Every month they have a different theme and select an exciting newly released fantasy novel, in addition to 4-6 hand selected goodies – like book inspired teas, candles, bookmarks, tote bags, and more!

So, how can you get a FairyLoot box of your own (because once you see the awesome books and all the awesome loot in them, I know you’ll want one too)? For more information, check out FairyLoot’s website!

So now, on to the exciting part – the unboxing! The theme for January 2018’s FairyLoot box was “Talk Faerie to Me”, and it was perfect for fans of faeries and Sarah J Maas! So if you love a good fantasy read featuring all things fae, then you are going to love this box – and even if you don’t, there’s no doubt in my mind you would love it anyways! There’s a TON of fantastic items, including a very highly anticipated new release that is getting fantastic reviews – and of course its filled with faeries!

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

In Margaret Rogerson’s debut novel, An Enchantment of Ravens, a skilled human painter must stand up to the ancient power of the faerie courts—even as she falls in love with a faerie prince. Filled to the brim with folklore and beautiful prose, An Enchantment of Ravens is a must read for fans of the genre – and especially those who love all things faeries!

Isobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel’s paintings are highly prized. But when she receives her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes—a weakness that could cost him his life. Furious and devastated, Rook spirits her away to the autumnlands to stand trial for her crime. Waylaid by the Wild Hunt’s ghostly hounds, the tainted influence of the Alder King, and hideous monsters risen from barrow mounds, Isobel and Rook depend on one another for survival. Their alliance blossoms into trust, then love—and that love violates the fair folks’ ruthless laws. Now both of their lives are forfeit, unless Isobel can use her skill as an artist to fight the fairy courts. Because secretly, her Craft represents a threat the fair folk have never faced in all the millennia of their unchanging lives: for the first time, her portraits have the power to make them feel.
