Although the theme for the December FairyLoot was quite simple – it was a really good box! It arrived a couple of days after Christmas which I’m really glad about… if it had arrived before Christmas, I wouldn’t have had the self control to leave it under the tree and wait to open it haha!
Here’s everything that was in the box!
FairyLoot announced a few months ago that they would start including trading cards in the boxes, and this was the first month that they appeared! These ones are inspired by A Court of Thorns and Roses.
Reading Journal by Fictiontea Designs and Blanca Montiel
I was so happy to see another reading journal because they come in so handy. I love Goodreads a lot, but there’s just something extra special about writing down all the books that you’ve read in a month. Plus there’s pages to write down quotes as well which is very useful because I always forget quotes that I like!
Pin flag by FairyLoot
Pin flags are really popular with bookish subscription boxes recently – I now have 3 haha! All I need now is more pins to add to them…
The Storm Crow ARC by Kalyn Josephson
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.
Book sleeve by Sweet Sequels
This is just so beautiful. And even better, it’s inspired by a scene in Harry Potter!
Glow in the Dark Necklace by FairyLoot
The fact that this necklace glows in the dark is so cool, but it’s not one that I can see myself wearing, unfortunately.
Fire and Heist by Sarah B. Durst
In Sky Hawkins’s family, leading your first heist is a major milestone–even more so than learning to talk, walk, or do long division. It’s a chance to gain power and acceptance within your family, and within society. But stealing your first treasure can be complicated, especially when you’re a wyvern–a human capable of turning into a dragon.
Embarking on a life of crime is never easy, and Sky discovers secrets about her 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 her boyfriend and mother back in the process. But then she uncovers a dark truth about were-dragon society–a truth more valuable and dangerous than gold or jewels could ever be.
