Hi and welcome to the unboxing of the FairyLoot March box! We had to wait for this one, one of the goodies was delayed because of the coronavirus, but this box was definitely worth the wait. The theme is Break the Curse, I loved the sound of that, and the book’s description, so of course I had to order, I’m weak like that 😬
Let’s take a look at the goodies, shall we. There’s a Raven Boys headband, a Wonderland passport cover, a genie notepad, a Caraval lanyard and a Queen of Nothing tumbler cup. Okay, let’s not beat about the bush: I will never ever wear that hairband, I’m just too old and not nearly girly enough, so I’ve given it to my niece who was over the moon with it. I do like the other goodies and I’m sure I’ll find good use for them.
The highlight of this box for me is without a doubt this gorgeous book sleeve inspired by A Curse So Dark and Lonely, which is a Beauty and the Beast retelling that was featured in a FairyLoot box last year. I loved the book and I adore everything about this sleeve, the quote, the drawings, the colours. I’ve been wanting a book sleeve forever, so I’m dead chuffed this was included!
Saving the best for last: an exclusive and signed edition of Bone Crier’s Moon by Kathryn Purdie. It’s dropdead gorgeous with its shimmery pale green sprayed edges, beautiful endpapers and exclusive artwork on the reverse side of the dust jacket (which I failed to capture on camera adequately so you’ll have to take my word for it). For the first time in my FairyLoot history, I read the book right away and I really enjoyed it. Bone magic, great world-building and a magic system based on siren lore, the enemies to lovers trope, quite a lot of action and not too heavy on the romance, exactly how I like my YA fantasy!
And this is the entire March FairyLoot box, which, although not my favourite box ever, was still clearly a win for me:
And that’s a wrap! Thanks for joining me today! Would you be happy with this box, is Bone Crier’s Moon on your TBR? Let me know below!
