Book Box Review: Fairy Loot November

I finally got my first Fairy Loot box! And I am very late posting this. This was one of the first book boxes I ever found, way back before I stumbled down the bookstagram hole. 😛 I fell in love the first time I saw their page. Every box I looked at had so many amazing items and an awesome looking YA fantasy book, and I just could not get over it!

So I got a 3 month subscription. Sadly, I think that’s going to be it. This box is from the UK, so shipping is so much more expensive than I thought it would be. I had decided to make this one of my (too many) Christmas presents to self, but I don’t think it’ll be affordable in the long run. 😦

On a happier note, here’s what was inside!

In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be darkness—and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood and moonlight. The destroyer. The death-bringer.
These are the legends that Asha, daughter of the king of Firgaard, has grown up learning in hushed whispers, drawn to the forbidden figures of the past. But it isn’t until she becomes the fiercest, most feared dragon slayer in the land that she takes on the role of the next Iskari—a lonely destiny that leaves her feeling more like a weapon than a girl.
Asha conquers each dragon and brings its head to the king, but no kill can free her from the shackles that await at home: her betrothal to the cruel commandant, a man who holds the truth about her nature in his palm. When she’s offered the chance to gain her freedom in exchange for the life of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard, she finds that there may be more truth to the ancient stories than she ever could have expected. With the help of a secret friend—a slave boy from her betrothed’s household—Asha must shed the layers of her Iskari bondage and open her heart to love, light, and a truth that has been kept from her.

I’d been seeing The Last Namsara on bookstagram for a while and I was planning on picking it up someday anyway, so I’m super happy it was included in this box! And I love the silver on this alternative cover!

I had been seeing Furyborn every time I got on NetGalley, and of course I had wished for it, but I never thought I’d get the ARC. Then it was included in this box and aslkjdf;! I’m actually more excited to read this than the Last Namsara. 😛

I’ve never actually used one of these before. Or really ever considered getting one. I mean, my books usually stay at my house. They’re safe. But I just flew to Texas (and am currently on the way home), and I decided to bring my Kindle instead of a book. I don’t get a carry-on for this return flight and I’m not paying for a checked bag. So I’ll be stuffing everything into my personal item backpack, and stuffing that under a seat. Hopefully it’ll keep my Kindle nice and safe.

Um, edible glitter?! I am 100% in! So I say, but I haven’t actually tried this yet. I will have to very soon! It smells to good to neglect much longer, and I just got a Manatea so I have no excuse.

I mean, I’ll love just about anything Hermione based, but omgosh, this smells so good! Am I the only one who doesn’t want to burn their bookish candles because they want them to last forever?

Well. I guess we can’t all be winners. What do people even use patches for anymore? I don’t have anything I’d put this on.

Very cute. I do really like stickers. But I think I like them too much. I never want to stick them on anything. So now I have a box of unused stickers, and this is going right on top. 😐


Did you receive Fairy Loot’s November box? What did you think? What was your favorite goodie?
