Fairyloot March Unboxing

Fairyloot’s March box, Break the Curse, arrived a couple of days ago for Rachael. We wanted to share pictures of the book as well as all of the goodies that she received. If you are interested in starting a subscription with Fairyloot, you can click here to visit their website. As I live in the US, I linked their US website, but you can easily switch to their UK site. They are currently sold out of May’s boxes, so if you decide to start a subscription, you’ll be starting with their June box. The June theme is A Different Kind of Magic.

In the box, you usually receive a series of items related to that particular month’s theme and the monthly book pick, which can either be a fantasy, science fiction, or contemporary YA novel. Fairyloot tends to stick to the fantasy and science fiction genres though.

The Items:

This month, the box was packed full! We received:
1. A Curse So Dark and Lonely inspired book sleeve designed by @eviebookish
2. Aladdin inspired notepad (based on the Genie) designed by @catarinabookdesigns
3. A Heartless inspired passport cover designed by @noverantale
4. Throne of Glass Tarot Cards (Seven of Cups and Eight of Cups) designed by @gabriella.bujdoso
5. A Raven Boys inspired headband (includes character art of Chainsaw) designed by @taratjah
6. A Folk of the Air inspired tumbler (includes a quote from Queen of Nothing) designed by @noverantale
7. A Caraval inspired lanyard designed by @catarinabookdesigns
8. A sweet postcard from Velaris, telling us how sorry Fairyloot is that the box was late

The Book:

This month’s book was Bone Crier’s Moon by Kathryn Purdie. Fairyloot decided to have the edges sprayed with a glittery, light green color. The picture doesn’t convey how beautiful the sprayed edges actually are in person. If you haven’t heard of the book, we have included the synopsis from Goodreads for your convenience:

Bone ​Criers have a sacred duty. They alone can keep the dead from preying on the living. But their power to ferry the spirits of the dead into goddess Elara’s Night Heavens or Tyrus’s Underworld comes from sacrifice. The gods demand a promise of dedication. And that promise comes at the cost of the Bone Criers’ one true love.
Ailesse has been prepared since birth to become the matriarch of the Bone Criers, a mysterious famille of women who use strengths drawn from animal bones to ferry dead souls. But first she must complete her rite of passage and kill the boy she’s also destined to love.
Bastien’s father was slain by a Bone Crier and he’s been seeking revenge ever since. Yet when he finally captures one, his vengeance will have to wait. Ailesse’s ritual has begun and now their fates are entwined—in life and in death.
Sabine has never had the stomach for the Bone Criers’ work. But when her best friend Ailesse is taken captive, Sabine will do whatever it takes to save her, even if it means defying their traditions—and their matriarch—to break the bond between Ailesse and Bastien. Before they all die.

Did you receive this box? If so, let us know what you thought of it. Rachael really liked a majority of the items, especially the book sleeve, tumbler, and book. There were a few items that she’ll sell, but overall, she felt that the box was worth the wait. If you’d like to check out any of the artists, their Instagrams are linked by the item that they designed.

Always,
Bookish Lovers
