I'm always super excited for the FairyLoot boxes - these boxes are so well put together that each month seems to be the best box ever and honestly, this month is no exception.
The June 'Rebels in Ballgowns' themed box has blown me away, I can't get over how much I love it!
What I think I love most about FairyLoot is how much effort they put into their presentation. The box screams of value and it's brilliant for taking photos. The box is stunning, both inside and out, each exclusive item is well-made, gorgeous and featuring the FairyLoot logo and the book comes in a really handy FairyLoot bag each and every time.
Receiving this box for the past three months has been so much fun and even now, I'm looking forward to the next one!
Here's a quick re-cap of what FairyLoot told us about this box before we dive in:
🎭 We are so excited to reveal that the June theme is ‘Rebels in Ballgowns’! This box is inspired by stories where there are rebels dressed in ballgowns - we love books where the main character is on a secret mission but has to dress up, particularly if it involves a masquerade party!
🎭 The book we are featuring won’t be out until the end of July, so you’ll be getting it a whole month before everyone else! It will also be an exclusive hardcover edition (the standard UK edition is paperback) and it is stunning! It’s an addictive feminist fantasy read with immersive descriptions - we can’t wait for you to read this wonderful book! It will also come with a signed bookplate, letter from the author and other goodies.
🎭 In this box you will find items inspired by Legendary, Shatter Me, The Selection and Nevernight. There is an item in this box that we have never ever included in any of our previous boxes and we are SUPER excited for it! We’ve spent months working on this item and we think you guys are going to love it!
I'm so ridiculously excited to share this box with you, let's open it up!
As always, we're presented with incredible FairyLoot artwork designed by my favourite artist Tara Spruit!
I spy a candle, and something red that looks too big to be a booksleeve...
Let's check out the book of the month!
This month's YA Fantasy novel is Grace & Fury by Tracy Banghart. It promises a feminist story line full of fierce females, rebellion and a ball! The synopsis reminds me a little of The Hunger Games, but for royalty. It sounds good and I can't wait to dig in!
It's a lot shorter than the books from the two previous boxes, which I'm happy about as I might actually get chance to read it before the next FairyChat, unlike last month! 🙈
The cover has gorgeous gold foiling on the front and back, with a gorgeous fiery design. It's also a FairyLoot exclusive as this book cover is only printed in paperback in the UK but FairyLoot subscribers are lucky enough to receive the hardcover! As an added bonus, the book doesn't release until the end of July, making this even more special!
It also features a very special hidden cover on both the front and back of the book! Just check out the pics below, it's stunning!! 😍😍
Isn't it beautiful?!? 😍🤩😍
As always, there's a signed bookplate from the author, along with another gorgeous print that doubles as a lovely letter from the author (with a positive feminist message) and a lovely postcard print!
Oh, and let's not forget the trusty FairyLoot drawstring bag to keep the book safe! I love these bags they're super practical, and pretty too!
I'm done, this box just destroyed me!!
LEGENDARY CUSHION COVER!! 😍😱😍
This exclusive cushion cover designed by the incredibly talented Miss Phi is so beautiful I want to scream. The quote from Legendary by Stephanie Garber, the tarot cards, the roses - it's all amazing! I'm so in love with this that I've already bought a cushion so that I can appreciate it in all it's squishy glory.
As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, I love how much effort goes into the packaging and design of these exclusive items!
First up is a collection of magnetic bookmarks designed again by Tara! Isn't her work beautiful?
I haven't yet read the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi, but it's been on my radar for a while and I now need to buy the books simply to use these gorgeous bookmarks!
I've never had an iron-on patch before, and my first thought upon seeing this exclusive design by Ink and Wonder, was that I really need to buy a denim jacket, just for this patch, so I'll be on the lookout for one the next time I brave going clothes shopping *shudders visibly*.
I've saved the best for last here because I am in LOVE with this exclusive reading journal!! I've never had a reading journal before and it's incredible! I don't even want to write in it because my handwriting sucks and I don't want to tarnish it! The journal was designed exclusively for FairyLoot members by FictionTea Designs and the inside is stunning. The sections are coloured (a little like the Hogwarts houses but with a few extra colours) and it's packed full of gorgeous book quotes by Stella's Bookish Art!
It's absolutely gorgeous, and practical and I'm in love with it! 😍😍😍
Arrgghhh!! This box is AMAZING!!
I'm currently reading (and loving) Nevernight by Jay Kristoff so I am so happy about this exclusive 'Corvere' candle by the wonderful folks at Geeky Clean! It smells wonderful (of strawberries and pepper) and I love the design on the side.
One reason I love this month's theme so much is the 'masquerade' feel (I'm a huge fan of balls (um, of the party variety 😂) i.e Pride and Prejudice, Phantom of the Opera, Legendary and Ash Princess to name but a few) and this exclusive masquerade necklace designed by the FairyLoot team is simply stunning! It's absolutely gorgeous and even better, it's nickel-free! I can't wait to wear this, but first to find a ball I can crash...
Last, but most certainly not least, we have a few bookish extras including the matching 'Rebels in Ballgowns' bookmark, the FairyScoop interview with this months featured author, Tracy Banghart and an expert/poster for Sea Witch by Sarah Henning.
Overall, I can't get over how much I absolutely love the June Fairy Loot Box! It's probably my favourite so far since I received my first box in April this year. I love these boxes so much and can't wait for the Fairy Loot, July, 'Power Within' theme!
