Every month I say: this is my favorite FairyLoot yet! And honestly, the February Emperors & Fugitives box was no exception.
I know this is super late, but since the March box was sold out anyway, I figured I had time to get this posted before anyone was able to purchase the April box! As usual, I will provide the retail price for all of the items that were found in the box. I think this helps for those who are considering grabbing a box, or possibly subscribing, but havent quite committed yet because the cost of international shipping is too much/overwhelming. This will be a quick post since I am sure everyone has already seen the contents of this box around Instagram, but I just wanted to throw in my two cents too!

It is one of the most wonderful times of the month: a bookish subscription unboxing time!
Book Boyfriend Box is a relatively new subscription box, with the February box being only the third they have put together. I am so supremely lucky to be able to rep for this company, they have been nothing short of wonderful, and I love seeing the evolution of their boxes. So, without further ado, February’s Out of this World box!

Every month I seek out unboxing pictures for FairyLoot, even if I have managed to snag a box that month or not. I don’t know why it took me so long to finally commit to a subscription, I was hesitant that there would be a few months in a row that the value wouldn’t be there to justify the international shipping I suppose. However, after seeing 7 months of unboxings, and personally receiving 4 of those boxes, I finally committed to a subscription to FairyLoot!
When I first started unboxing FairyLoot on my blog, I wanted to break down the price of each item in the box, so it would help anyone else who was on the fence about the international shipping into convincing them to subscribe to this book box company, and I have decided to go back to that! It does take a little bit of extra time and research, but I think its worth it to potentially save people some money, or help them commit to finally taking the plunge into FairyLoot!
So without further ado, the January FairyLoot box: Mischief and Magic!

Even though Christmas is right around the corner, when it comes to subscription boxes, I have always had the mentality to “treat yo’ self”. Subscription boxes are so much fun, and even if I personally had no use for some of the items, I could always find a stocking or three to slip some goodies into!
Book Boyfriend Box is a bimonthly subscription box that focuses on all of our bookish boyfriends and loves. This is a brand new book subscription box on the scene, with the December ‘Love Letters’ box being only the second one. As a rep for the company, I have received both boxes and can honestly say this one blew me away with not just the quality of the items, but with the amazing curation as well!

Why is FairyLoot so amazing? How do they do it?!
When the theme for November was announced, on Instagram in early October, I scheduled a reminder in my planner to hop online and purchase one as soon as they became available. “Royals & Rogues”?! “Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas”?! Count me in.
I have gotten a few FairyLoots before and have loved them infinitely, but since they are based in the U.K. and I live in the US, I never wanted to commit to a subscription because DAMN YOU SHIPPING!! The November “Royals & Rogues” box may just change my mind though…

When OwlCrate announced the last month that the November theme was going to be “Wonderland”, I sighed so heavily in disappointment. Seriously, I am surprised my family didn’t hear it from 600 miles away. I have never been a fan of Alice in Wonderland, and a whole box curated around this theme was sure to be a let down to people like myself right?
This month’s box may be one of my favorite OwlCrates to date! Just when I was getting ready to unsubscribe, they lured me back in… Continue reading “November OwlCrate Unboxing!”
Last month, I was asked to be a rep for a brand new subscription box company called The Book Boyfriend Box! You all should know by now how much I adore subscription boxes, so this was such an honor and I am so excited to be working with Bailey and Taylor on this project for the next couple of months!
The Book Boyfriend Box is a bi-monthly subscription box that features items based on some of our favorite book boyfriends! In addition to the items, there will be a newly released YA novel included in the box that goes with the theme (but not necessarily the boyfriend featured).
October’s theme was “To the Stars” and was a wonderfully well curated inaugural box! So, without further rambling, let’s get to the goods!

I love trying out new book subscription boxes. So, when I stumbled upon @booksondragonwings Instagram account a few months ago, I knew I had to give this one a shot.
Books on Dragonwings is a fairly new-ish quarterly subscription box that differs slightly from other book subscriptions in that the book featured is announced and not a surprise. I love this idea; it takes away the anxiety of purchasing multiple book boxes and having either duplicate books sent to you, OR receiving a book you have already bought. In addition, all of the items in the box are curated to fit the book chosen, rather than a general theme. I assume this would make for a fun and presumably more interactive reading experience. (I haven’t actually gotten to read the book yet, so I cannot say for certain this is true) But, I am a huge sucker for all things fantasy and science-fiction (the two genre’s this book box is centered around), plus the logo is just so cute!
The book that was featured in the September Books on Dragonwings box was The Reader, by Traci Chee! The Reader was getting wonderful reviews pre-release, so I was pretty excited to purchase this box. And without further ado: September’s Books on Dragonwings unboxing!

I cannot believe how fast my August OwlCrate got here this month! I got my shipping notification while I was at the gym on a Tuesday night, and then Thursday at lunch I was retrieving it from the apartment rental office… IT WAS LIKE MAGIC GUYS.
And you know what else is like magic? Me posting this unboxing on time! Unlike my serious procrastination on the July Unboxing. (Also, maybe I only received one subscription box this month so there was no reason to delay…..maybe.) August’s theme was “Fast Times at YA High” which I thought was a really cute take and turn on the “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” which good god, a ton of people probably didn’t even catch because we’re old.
When I heard what the theme was, honestly, I wasn’t initially excited. I do love OwlCrate, and the way that they put together their boxes, but romance contemporaries aren’t really my cup of tea. Especially because the older I get, the more I really, really dislike reading about immature teenagers and high school settings. Anyways, enough reminding me how ancient I am, and let’s get to the exciting stuff, the unboxing!

Good Lord, I know, this is incredibly late. I was going to write a paragraph long excuse as to why, but then I decided to just cut straight to the point and say that I am a unique and special snowflake, and didn’t want to post my unboxing when everyone else was. One thing leads to another and two weeks pass and well, here we are.
The theme for the July box was “Good vs. Evil”. This is one of the more ambitious and unique boxes that OwlCrate has put together, and in my personal opinion, it really paid off. There were two separate boxes that were sent out, one themed good, and the other with evil type items. No one knew what box they were receiving, which made the anticipation so much more fun. Even with checking out all of the spoilers on Instagram I still didn’t know exactly WHAT I was going to get, which is always fun and stressful for people with anxiety… like myself.
