Remember when I said this was coming? Probably not, since it was so long ago, but it’s here now!
The theme for this month’s FairyLoot was tricksters, and I think my heart skipped a beat when I heard that. Also, I had absolutely no idea what the book was this month, and no clue what would be inside at all.
The first item I saw when I opened was the Sherlock themed enamel tin mug from Fictiontea Designs. It’s white, rimmed with black, with an outlines black design on the front thats says ‘I need to go to my mind palace’. The perfect thing for any thirsty Sherlock fan.
Next came this amazing smelling body lotion from Geeky Clean, inspired by everyone’s favourite trickster God. Exclusive to FairyLoot this Loki Lotion is in the scent Dragon’s Blood, and smells like cinnamon. What’s not to like?
Third, I pulled out a Harry Potter square tin, and already I know I love it. When I opened the Hogwarts created tin I saw a set of Hogwarts playing cards, with the four houses as the four suits. Considering how much official Harry Potter march is usually, this was clearly a bargain.
The Fortune Telling Kitchen Glove was a lot of fun. and not something that I already have, so it makes a nice addition to my kitchen. It’s actually comfortable to wear, and isn’t too big on my hand, so I have been using it instead of a tea towel.
Even though i don’t really have the room to display prints anywhere at the moment, Miss Phi’s Exclusive Harley Quinn Print is really pretty. Its definitely channeling the Suicide Squad Harley with the pink and blue, and has the quote “It doesn’t matter who broke you down what matters is who made you smile again”. I think even if you’re not a huge Harley fan, you can identify with this quote, and I manages to slot in in at the bottom of my mirror. Great motivation when I’m doing my make up!
You’d have thought that as a reader I would have enough bookmarks, and don’t need anymore, but you’d be wrong. The Terrible Truths Watercolour Bookmark by Lexy Olivia is absolutely gorgeous, and I adore it! In fact it pushed me into a re-read of the Six of Crows duology (like I needed convincing) since the quote is (obviously) from this series. The bookmark had a slight sheen to it, meaning that its more durable than you might think, and it great.
And finally, the book for this month was… Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody. Yeah, I hadn’t heard of it either. But, it’s a YA Fantasy novel (of course) set in a
famed carnival. Our protagonist is an illusionist, going so far as to create a whole family of illusions that you can see, touch, smell, who work with her at a freak show, in a travelling carnival city. All is fine… until one of these illusions is murdered, but how can you murder something that isn’t “real”. I’ve already read this and gave it 🌟🌟🌟🌟, but for more you’ll see it in my September Wrap-Up, and in the Full review that’s coming soon.
There was also the usual goodies, the signed bookplate, authors letter, fairy scoop and a bonus discount coupon for Behind the Pages.
My favuote item was either the bookmark or the Harley Quinn print, or maybe the mug…. As usually FairyLootwas full of treats and I look forward to next month.
Did you get July’s FairyLoot, and if so what was your favourite item? If not which item would you most like to own.
Thanks for reading!
