Hi, everyone! I’m here with my January “Talk Faerie To Me” FairyLoot unboxing and I hope you enjoy it!
The most unique item this month has to be the pillow case that was designed by an old favourite, Evie Bookish. The quote on the front it from ACOWAR one of my favourite books of 2017 (unsurprisingly) and says “Only you can decide what breaks you”. It’s a really nice material, and I adore having it on my bed.
To match the ACOWAR theme we also got two cute magnetic bookmarks from Dreamy and Co. As you can see there’s a little Rhys and Feyre, both in their Illyrian fighting leathers and ready to slay!
A couple of boxes ago, way back when in the July Tricketer’s box, we got a body lotion from Geeky Clean which I am still obsessed with so I was very excited to see another item from them. In this box we got a lip balm, I got the unseelie one, which had a lovely honey scent, and is completely vegan!
Then we also recieved a very intricate Faerieland colouring book from Michael O’Mara. I love that it has a picture of the creatures opposite a short description of what they are, tough I will admit that I don’t tend to use colouring books very often.
There were quite a few pieces of art included in the box this month, with two double sided prints. One one side we got portraits of Aelin and Rowan, from the Thorne of Glass series, and designed by Diana Worak. Then if you turn these prints over you got some lovely typography art from Stella’sBookish Art. The quotes featured are “We all tell the truth as we see it, do we not?” from (I think) The Dark Artfices by Cassie Clare, and “Do not lose your heart to a faery prince, it never ends well” from The Iron King by Julie Kagawa.
I often say that my favourite item to receive are the candles, and guess what… I love the candle that was in the box. It was created by Meraki Candles, who have done other candles for FairyLoot in the past. ‘Prince Cardan’ is exclusive and themes to the book that was featured in this months book. The scent is very clean, and masculine, combining scents of clove oak-wood, moss, leather, black pepper and pine, and I can imagine Cardan smelling of anything else.
The book that we got this month was not a surprise, considering how hyped it has been recently. Even I was hyped to get my hands on it, and I have never even read any Holly Black before. The Cruel Prince is a “reverse changeling” story, where we follow Jude, a human girl, who is taken to live in Faerie after a Fae murders her parents. I did read this pretty much straight away, and ended up finishing it in two days, and I have a full spoiler free review that you can check out if you want to know more about the book.
There was also the usual suspects: a signed bookplate and letter from Holly Black, Fabruary’s FairyScoop, FairyLoot bookmark and an exclusive Prince Cardan artwork.
Even though the artwork was supposed to be a bonus item, probably because I enjoyed the book so much, I loved this little portrait of Cardan, and stuck it into the back of my book.
Did you get this FairyLoot and what did you think? If not, what item would you most like to receive? Have you read The Cruel Prince, or is it on your TBR?
Thanks for reading!
