August FairyLoot Unboxing: Things Are Not What They Seem

It’s time for another unboxing! This is the August FairyLoot box and the theme was ‘Things Are Not What They Seem’. There were a lot of different book series mentioned when the theme was revealed, some of which I was so excited about. Here’s everything that was inside.

One Ring to Rule Them All Pocket Mirror by FairyLoot


I own so many pocket mirrors now thanks to bookish subscription boxes. This one is inspired by Lord of the Rings.

Lunar Cutlery Set by FairyLoot and Taratjah


I wasn’t expecting something like this at all but it’s such a brilliant idea. This set comes with a fork, spoon, and chopsticks inside a very cute box. It makes it easier to carry these around in your bag without them getting dirty, and the reusable straws that FairyLoot featured a few months ago fit inside as well.

An Ember in the Ashes Pillowcase by Saintdri and KDP Letters


This is a double sided cushion cover/pillowcase inspired by An Ember in the Ashes. On one side is this beautiful lettering, and on the other is some character art that is equally beautiful.

Mistborn Metal Bookmark by In the Reads


This is my favourite item from the entire box even though I haven’t read the Mistborn series yet. Metal bookmarks are becoming my favourite ones to use at the moment and this one is stunning.

Hair Scrunchies by Taratjah


I’ve been meaning to buy some scrunchies for a while and now I don’t have to! These are inspired by the Graceling series, and on each scrunchie there is a different image.

Tarot Cards by Loweana Art


More stunning tarot cards!

Thomas Cresswell Candle by Flick the Wick


I’d like to think that this is what Thomas Cresswell really smells like because it smells amazing. It’s chocolate and coffee scented and usually I don’t like either of those scents in candles, but somehow they work really well together.

The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen


A future chieftain.

Fie abides by one rule: look after your own. Her Crow caste of undertakers and mercy-killers takes more abuse than coin, but when they’re called to collect royal dead, she’s hoping they’ll find the payout of a lifetime.

A fugitive prince.

When Crown Prince Jasimir turns out to have faked his death, Fie’s ready to cut her losses—and perhaps his throat. But he offers a wager that she can’t refuse: protect him from a ruthless queen, and he’ll protect the Crows when he reigns.

A too-cunning bodyguard.

Hawk warrior Tavin has always put Jas’s life before his, magically assuming the prince’s appearance and shadowing his every step. But what happens when Tavin begins to want something to call his own?



I feel like I say this with every FairyLoot box recently, but the range of items just keeps getting better and better. There’s always a really good variety of items that have either never been featured before, or ones that have great usability. The scrunchies were a great addition for me because I know that I’ll get a lot of use out of them and I haven’t ever recieved them in any book box before. The cutlery set was also incredible and one of my favourites.


The Merciful Crow was one book that I was one book that I was really excited about so it being in the box made me super happy. But this book is also an exclusive edition; it’s signed by the author, has a beautiful engraving on the hardback, and has a map printed on the other side of the dust jacket.


I can’t not give this 5 stars for value for money. I was so happy with everything inside, especially the book!
