Hi and welcome to another FairyLoot unboxing! Like I told you earlier this month when I unboxed the May box, I could not resist ordering the June box and I’m happy to report that I am once again very pleased with the goodies I’ve unearthed, have a look:
My favourite item is the woodmark, as I positively ADORE bookmarks and one can never have enough of them, even though half my reading is done electronically these days. Since I’m gradually adding to my bookmark collection, I’ve decided to use “The Secret Book of Banter” a.k.a. the box that’s like a hollow book (which is totally fab as well) to keep my bookmarks in, because now they’re all over the place and I can never find the one I want when I want it (first world problems, check).
I love the socks, what with the cat and the little cat feet they’re purrrrfect! I haven’t worn them yet, I don’t know what kind of weather you’re having, but it’s definitely not been sock-weather here, too hot to wear even these wee ankle ones!
I’m very pleased with the tea too, strawberry and kiwi, yum! The package says it can be used for cold brews too, which I’m planning to do very soon.
The Bloodwitch enamel pin is beautiful and I will put it on the pin ribbon I have in my book nook, which is probably also where I’ll keep the enamel paperclips (my fave is the Mad but Fab one) since I don’t have an immediate purpose for these giant clips.
I’ve never kept a reading journal before, and I’m looking forward to trying it out. No idea if I’ll keep it up, but right now I’m really excited about it.
I love the patch, it’s gorgeous but I can’t really think of a place to put it. If you have any ideas, do let me know! In the meantime I might use it as a bookmark.
As always, the book is accompanied by a letter from its author. And this letter really resonated with me, as it’s dedicated to everyone who has found a home in books, and haven’t we all? You probably wouldn’t be here if you didn’t feel at least a part of your heart belongs between the pages of a novel. The artwork overleaf is stunning too. However, it’s nowhere near as stunning as the book itself. These pictures don’t do it justice AT ALL, those shimmering edges are to die for and this is easily the most drop dead gorgeous FairyLoot book I have received to date. I just want to put it on a shelf and stare at it all day long! It’s also signed, which is a fab little bonus too. Click the slideshow to view!
I have been able to resist ordering the July box, the book summary didn’t really speak to me, but we’ll see what August brings. Tell me, what did you think of this month’s loot? Is Sorcery of Thrones on your TBR? Whatever you’re reading (and also if you’re not reading anything at the mo), have a great time!
