Last month I wrote a wee post about UK based bookish subscription boxes. I mentioned in that post that I’d ordered my first Fairyloot box, the July edition. So I thought today I’d share the contents with you!
First, a little bit of information about Fairyloot. It’s a monthly subscription service that costs £26 / month plus shipping. If you’re in the UK the shipping is £4.30 and they do ship internationally too. You can sign up for just one month or take out a longer subscription, I like how flexible they are.
Each month has a different theme and each box will include a recently published YA box plus some bookish goodies. By signing up to the newsletter you can be notified of the monthly theme and when the box will go on sale.
I was intrigued by the July theme of Pirates and Power, as well as the teaser that there would be TWO books in the box this month. I decided to treat myself and sign up.
I’m going to put the unboxing in a spoiler section below, in case you are yet to receive your box. However, in summary, I bloomin’ loved the July box! I can’t believe how much was included. Honestly, I’m seriously impressed.
Ok on with the unboxing…View Spoiler »
The first thing that struck me was the attention to detail. There’s obviously a lot of thought and love goes into the curation of these boxes.
So let’s look at the Pirate themed goodies first…
Not only did we receive a cute “I Ship It” tote bag designed by Alice in Wonderbookland, but there was also an exclusive Pirate Bounty lip balm from Geeky Clean.
I loved the inclusion of this gold foil adventure notebook from Museums & Galleries.
And the Pirate themed book? A signed AND dedicated copy of Inherited by Freedom Matthews!
I LOVE all of the Pirate themed goodies and I’m really excited to get reading Inherited. So now time for the Power themed goodies…
I received a beautiful ARC copy of Frostblood. There are two editions of this ARC and I received the Fireblood version.
I’ve heard SUCH good things about this new series so I’m very excited to delve in!
To go along with this theme of fire I received an AWESOME Daenerys Targaryen Funko keychain (husband was rather excited with this part too).
The box also contained an exclusive Frostblood & Fireblood bath bomb from Geeky Clean.
BUT WAIT, there’s more!!!!
Accompanying all of these treasures was a cute colouring bookmark from Behind The Pages and some bookish swag.
I’m absolutely delighted with my first ever Fairyloot box. I genuinely cannot believe how many items we received – and fantastic items at that!

I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for future themes that take my fancy. I’d recommend signing up to the Fairyloot newsletter if you are interested in Fairyloot boxes, that way you won’t miss when future boxes are released (they sell out quickly).
I’m a very happy Fairyloot customer!
Have you subscribed to any of the Fairyloot boxes yet?
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
