October 2017 FairyLoot Unboxing

FairyLoot is a monthly book subscription box that specializes in Young Adult Fantasy books, based out of London, England. Recent themes include All That Sass (September 2017)Otherworlds (August 2017), and Tricksters (July 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!

And, if you decide to subscribe? Check out my FairyLoot Page for current discount codes for 3 and 6 month subscriptions!

So now, on to the exciting part – the unboxing! The theme for October 2017’s FairyLoot box was “Villainous”, and it was inspired by everyone’s favourite fictional villains, including villains from The Young Elites, Harry Potter, Sherlock and more! So if you love a good villain, then you are going to love this box – and even if you’re not, there’s no doubt in my mind you would love it anyways! There’s a TON of fantastic items, including TWO hardcover books – one which is an Evil Queen retelling, and the other being a FairyLoot Exclusive Edition of The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo – how cool is that? Some of these items have never been included in a FairyLoot box before, so I was super excited to unbox this month’s box!

November 2017 TBR

Hey Bookworms! For those of you who have been following my reading journey on my Bookstagram or Twitter, you’ll know that I have had a pretty successful reading month in October – I managed to read about half of my October TBR list (plus a couple books that weren’t initially on it), and with everything going on, I am pretty proud of that! My stack of To Be Read Books is slowly (but surely) shrinking, and as I head into the next few months, I will be limiting myself when it comes to purchasing new books, so hopefully I will be able to complete my current TBR stack for the first time in months!

So, what will I be reading this month?

I am going to try and be realistic with myself this month – with my educational journey as a Teacher Candidate now well underway, I now know my time to read will be limited, so I am under no illusions of believing I will actually be able to finish every book on the below list – once again, even half would be an accomplishment!

  1. The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo (September 26, 2017)
  2. The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli (October 3, 2017)
  3. Shadowblack by Sebastien de Castell (October 5, 2017)
  4. Into the Bright Unknown by Rae Carson (October 10, 2017)
  5. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C Dao (October 10, 2017)
  6. Runebinder by Alex R Kahler (November 14, 2017)
  7. The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty (November 14, 2017)
  8. Siege of Shadows by Sarah Raughley (November 21, 2017)
