This is a rather late unboxing of Fairyloot’s March box, it arrived the afternoon I left for my holiday right at the end of March and I must confess to forgetting about creating this post until my April box turned up this morning! The March box also happened to be Fairyloot’s 3rd anniversary box and as a result we were treated to an extra book! So keep reading and find out what was included!
Favourites – Fairyloot’s March Box
The bookish goodies…
I must confess to slightly rushing to unpack this box knowing that I had to finish packing, jump in the shower and get to the train station relatively quickly! I was certainly impressed with everything though!
- Bookish Scarf from Cara Kozik – I’ve been wearing scarves to work recently although none quite as stunning as this!
- Alice in Wonderland inspired socks from Team Fairyloot – I’m wearing these for the first time today, they’re pretty comfy and a good fit even for my big feet! Hopefully they’ll wash well!
- Bookworm Page Tabs designed by Fairyloot – If you browse through my shelves you’re unlikely to find books filled with post-its pointing out key passages and favourite points but that may change now I have these, they look great!
- Metal Bookmark designed by KDP Letters – This Strange The Dreamer inspired bookmark is gorgeous and my picture really doesn’t do it justice, it’s a stunning design!
- Fairyloot Anniversary Pin – This is a really pretty little pin to celebrate their third birthday, now I need to find somewhere to put it, I’m starting to gain quite a collection of pins!
- Three Prints from Morgana0anagrom – These three prints are inspired by Warcross, The Cruel Prince and An Ember In The Ashes. They are all beautiful but I must confess to having not read any of the books, although I do own The Cruel Prince!
- The Fool and Wheel of Fortune Tarot Cards – These aren’t mentioned on the spoiler card so I’m not sure whose artwork they feature but they are very pretty!
- Viper by Bex Hogan – Viper is the bonus novel in this box! It comes with a Fairyloot exclusive purple cover and is signed by Bex. I also arrived a couple of weeks before it’s official release date!
To Best The Boys by Mary Weber
Every year for the past fifty-four years, the residents of Pinsbury Port receive a mysterious letter inviting all eligible-aged boys to compete for an esteemed scholarship to the all-male Stemwick University. Every year, the poorer residents look to see that their names are on the list. The wealthier look to see how likely their sons are to survive. And Rhen Tellur opens it to see if she can derive which substances the ink and parchment are created from, using her father’s microscope.
In the province of Caldon, where women are trained in wifely duties and men are encouraged into collegiate education, sixteen-year-old Rhen Tellur wants nothing more than to become a scientist. As the poor of her seaside town fall prey to a deadly disease, she and her father work desperately to find a cure. But when her Mum succumbs to it as well? Rhen decides to take the future into her own hands—through the annual all-male scholarship competition.
With her cousin, Seleni, by her side, the girls don disguises and enter Mr. Holm’s labyrinth, to best the boys and claim the scholarship prize. Except not everyone’s ready for a girl who doesn’t know her place. And not everyone survives the maze.
I must confess to this book not even being on my radar when I pulled it from the drawstring bag, but the premise sounds so interesting! It’s got grey sprayed edges and is signed by Mary so I’m keen to give it a go!
This was my second box from Fairyloot and I’m really pleased with it although I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the tarot cards and prints that seem to feature quite heavily! Let me know what you think in the comments!
