It’s time for another unboxing! This was a box that I had initially skipped while I was off work, but decided last second that I didn’t want to miss out on their edition of the book! Turns out, unskipping was an amazing decision because this box was AWESOME. Aprils theme was Hidden Identities and the book was one of my favourite reads this year: The Prison Healer by Lynette Noni (if you’re interested, you can read my review of TPH here).
The Fairyloot edition really took my breath away! Two sprayed edges and a stenciled edge. Their cover was changedfrom blue to purple, there’s gorgeous artwork by Alice Maria Power, AND stunning foiled embossing on the hardcover by Talia Nobel. Seriously, how gorgeous is this? It shouldn’t surprised me since Fairyloot typically comes out with beautiful exclusive editions, but this one is up next to their edition of Kingdom of the Wicked as one of my favourite special editions!
The items included in this box were also beautiful and useful. The only thing I wasn’t wild about was the tote bag. I love the art, but I get so many tote bags that I have no use for (my go-to tote bag is actually a Fairyloot one from 2019 and it’s pretty much the only one I use). This month’s tote features breathtaking art by Arzzz with Poppy and Hawke from From Blood and Ash.
My photo doesn’t do them justice, but next up is a foiled bookmark set by Talia Nobel featuring artwork inspired by The Poppy War, Blood Heir, and An Ember in the Ashes. April’s tarot cards were illustrated by Salome Totladze and featured Reid and Lou from Serpent & Dove.
An item I’m looking forward to using is the cherry blossom soap made by Little Heart Gifts, inspired by Flame in the Mist. It smells SO nice and I can’t wait to use it!
One of my favourite items to ever get in a book box are these Lord of the Rings-inspired bookends designed by Jennifer Hawkyard. As soon as my new shelf came in, I specifically placed them where I could see them and admire them everyday!
The last item included was a gorgeous City of Brass-inspired enamel pin designed by Icey Designs (aka Hafsah Faizal). I love the colours and the quote and it makes me nostalgic to re-read the Daevabad series soon!
Finally, I wanted to give a shout out to Fairyloot’s amazing support team! My book came damaged (not shown here, but the back of the book has water damage and tears), and they quickly offered to replace it.
