FairyLoot Unboxing August 2018 | Mutinous Pirates
July’s FairyLoot box had items inspired by Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo, Pirates of the Caribbean and Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. And as always, art for the box by Taratjah was gorgeous! I picked up a couple of items from my holiday to Mallorca for these photos, since I knew what the book would be 😉
You might remember that I read These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch as part of the blog tour, and I loved it! So I was super excited to get this copy. It has green sprayed edges, is signed by Sara, and FairyLoot had this art print by Taratjah included of Vex and Lu along with some botanical information papers and a scrub soap by Geeky Clean (inspired by sweet peat from the book).
Hanging Wall Flag
First item was a hanging wall flag by Reverie and Ink… now FairyLoot actually emailed about this and we should be getting replacements soon. I’ll hold my hands up, I didn’t spot that this quote from Shadow and Bone had an additional ‘S’ somewhere… not for several unboxings that I watched. But I’m happy it will be fixed having had it pointed out!
One of my favourite items was this candle by Nerd Poured Candles, inspired by Prince Elian from To Kill a Kingdom. If you didn’t already know – I adore TKAK. I recommend it as often as I can and so I just love this. Plus there’s glitter in!
At one point FairyLoot posted a poll on Facebook asking how people remember this quote, and I kind of assumed we’d be getting a water bottle with it on! I was a huge fan of Pirates of the Caribbean as a kid (and still am, really) so this water bottle by KDP Letters is a winner with me! (I’ve used it everyday in work since too and it’s really helping to encourage me to drink water, which is a massive plus!)
Wax Seal Kit
Specially designed by the FairyLoot team, I actually really love this item! It’s perfect for bookstagram photos, although I’ve yet to break it in as I don’t want to use that gorgeous gold glitter unless I have another. (But you can bet I will be using it at some point.)
This magnet was designed by Miss Phi and features a quote from Daughter of the Pirate King. Although I don’t have anything to properly put it on, I can’t deny it’s gorgeous and still looks great leaned up on my bookcase!
Finally, the promotional item was an exclusive sampler with a chapter sampler and exclusive poster for King of Scars. Further reason why I desperately need to read Six of Crows.
I love pirates in general, so this was my favourite FairyLoot box so far for definite! There isn’t a single item I disliked and it’s made me pretty excited for September’s box.
Little disclaimer, a couple of my items actually arrived faulty. But just 5 days after I contacted FairyLoot they had sent replacements for them, so I definitely have to vouch for their awesome customer service for that!
Next Month – Starcrossed Swoons 🌙
From FairyLoot themselves:
‘Do you love your books with starcrossed lovers? Characters that make you swoon? Rich tales and lush descriptions? Then this box is perfect for you!
This box features items inspired by Twilight, Strange The Dreamer, A Court of Thorns and Roses, Shadowhunters, Shadow and Bone and The Star-Touched Queen. There are some really amazing items in here that we have NEVER included in previous boxes! All we’re saying is: prepare to swoon and fangirl/boy.
Our book pick is from a fantastic debut author and the story follows a girl whose survival depends on being the perfect body double to a cruel princess – expect allure, danger, disguises and swoon-worthy romance. It’s got everything! We are so thrilled to reveal that our edition will have an EXCLUSIVE COVER, SPRAYED PAGES and will actually be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. How awesome is that?’
Okay. I know what the book is again. And I can’t wait to see the exclusive cover and sprayed pages! Also very excited for the ACOTAR item of course and… also kind of the Twilight item. I was a huge fan when I was like 14, and I guess I just can’t help it!
