Hello one, hello all. Today I bring you a somewhat belated but nonetheless exciting post – an unboxing! And not just any old unboxing but an unboxing of February’s Fairyloot box focused on the theme ‘Twisted Tales’.
For those who don’t know, Fairyloot is a UK-based subscription box with a monthly theme which the products of center around. Boxes contain a new YA fantasy release and 4-6 bookish goodies and each box is so beautifully packed you won’t want to ruin the prettiness by unwrapping it! Boxes frequently feature signed bookplate and a letter from the author, as well the beautifully designed Fairyscoop newsletter – even the packing list containing details of all the products is carefully designed and curated.
I’ve received four boxes so far (and have one on the way) and I’m constantly amazed by the care and passion which seems to go into every item in every box. Everything is so carefully selected that it feels like every single small item that is included is there for a reason and there are so many products and editions exclusive to Fairyloot that the box has very quickly became one of my favourite bookish things.
After skipping out on the January ‘Talk Faerie To Me’ box (since I’m not a fan of the whole fae thing and I dislike Sarah J. Maas related items), I eagerly jumped back on the Fairyloot bandwagon once the February theme of ‘Twisted Tales’ was announced. I love a good fairytale, especially if its dark and creepy as originally intended, so I had to have it when I heard this in Fairyloot’s announcement: “Once upon a time… there was a box filled with exclusive items themed around dark fairy tales and an epic and exclusive signed book! To find out how this tale ends you’ll have to wait until February 2018. The February ‘Twisted Tales’ box is perfect for fans of dark fairytales and The Grimm Fairytales! You can expect items themed on Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, and Rapunzel. The book we are featuring is a very highly anticipated new release that has magic, dark fairytales, and mystery. It’s a completely mesmerising read that you are sure to love! What’s more, the edition we will include is an exclusive hardcover edition made just for FairyLoot that you won’t be able to get anywhere else (it’s stunning!) and it will also be signed by the author – that’s right, it’s actually signed!”
Now we know what kind of goodies to expect inside, let’s not waste any more time, let’s take a peek at all the bookish goodness I found inside:
