April Wrap Up & Haul

Another late wrap up and haul post!  But still, I will not be stopped in putting up some pretty pictures of books I read and acquired in the month of April, so let’s get to it!

Wrap Up

I was a reading machine in April!  I really discovered how much I enjoy taking baths, and have since discovered that by reading in the tub, I can knock out an extra three books a month. Plus, I was speed reading ACOTAR and ACOMAF in preparation for A Court of Wings and Ruin (thank god I did that), so that padded my April list as well.

Caraval – Hype Buster or No?

img_9623I am totally that person who reads a super hyped book and then rates it 2 stars.  It happened with A Court of Thorns and Roses (bleh), it happened with Empress of A Thousand Skies (don’t even get me started), and The Grisha Trilogy (didn’t even finish that).  So, I was 100% prepared to not like Caraval after all the hype surrounding the book basically built it up to be the best thing since sliced bread.

And, I am happy to report that it passed my hype test!

*Cue confetti and rave horns*

February FairyLoot Unboxing!

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!

January FairyLoot Unboxing!

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 fairy-loot-selfiewouldn’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!
