Fairyloot October 2019 Unboxing

This is my first unboxing post as I finally decided to order a subscription box, having been eyeing them up for ages! There are various book subscription boxes you can get, which usually include a book and a selection of goodies. Plus, it’s a surprise, as you don’t know what the book or items will be.

Fairyloot is a UK-based YA fantasy subscription box. If you subscribe, you get a box a month which includes a hardback book and 5-6 exclusive goodies around a theme. You can subscribe monthly, or there are 3 month and 6 month pre-paid options. The monthly cost is £26. Or you can get a single purchase and just buy a one-off box, which is what I decided to do. It’s pretty expensive to get monthly, so I just decided I would by a box occasionally as a single purchase when a theme catches my eye.

Be warned there will be spoilers for the contents of the October box in this post!

The October theme is ‘Love at First Bite’. I’m sure for a lot of people this must be their dream box, as there are a lot of vampire fans out there. I’m not super into vampires, but I really wanted the book in this box so decided to go for it. I got an eARC of The Beautiful and loved it, so wanted to get my hands on a physical copy and couldn’t resist a signed exclusive copy.

There is also a map of New Orleans and an author letter with a lovely print on the back with artwork by @kat_adara.

Overall I’m really pleased with my first box. Even though the book was the main attraction, I’m super happy with the items too. They are really good quality. One of the things I wanted most was a book sleeve so I’m chuffed to finally have one. Plus it has a quote from Dracula. The beanie is great too; I made use of that for our local fireworks display. I don’t really use candles but this one does smell nice. The coasters will come in handy as I’m always looking for somewhere to put down my mugs.

I’ll definitely be getting a box again, although I won’t be subscribing. I would love to, but it’s a lot of money and I’m supposed to be saving!
