Fairy Loot Unboxing December 2016

I was extremely pleased with November's Fairy Loot box, which was also my first box from them, so I was very excited for this month's to arrive. I was actually away whilst it arrived so I had to wait a few days to open it. The theme this month was Sci-Fi Adventure. Typically I prefer Sci-Fi films to books as I find it so hard to wrap my head around without the visuals but I have been getting more into Sci-Fi this year so was interested to give this box a try.

 What was in the Box?
  • Flashfall by Jenny Moyer: This is a book I have been thinking about getting ever since it was released so I am glad to finally own it! It looks so interesting and exciting so I will definitely be reading this very soon! This also came with a signed bookplate, letter from the author and a bookmark which is always a nice touch!
  • Star Wars Funko! Pop: Definitely my favourite item in this box. They sent out Yoda, Stormtroopers, Princess Leia, C-3PO and Rey. I got Rey and I was very happy with that! I already have a Princess Leia so Rey or C-3PO were my preferences. Rey is currently living on my DVD shelf!
  • Kryptonite Bath Powder: This was created exclusively for the box by Geeky Clean. This smells so, so delicious. It smells like cupcakes (because naturally Superman's weakness would be a crystal that smells like cupcakes?) and I am so excited to use this.
  • Galaxy Socks: These were created by Fairy Loot for this box, I really like them. I am not sure what material they are but they seem warm which is good for winter!
  • Watercolour Bookmark: The quote on this is from the Starbound Trilogy which is one of my favourites and it says "We Are and Will Always Be What We Choose". I am currently using this bookmark and it is so beautiful. This was created by Lexy Olivia
  • Art Print and Buttons: Designed for this box by Taratjah. The art print is of the Lunar Chronicles guys and the buttons are of Darrow and Sevro from Red Rising which I haven't actually read yet but really want to!
  • Bonus Items: Way Down Dark sampler (we actually got sent this book from the publisher so I passed the sampler on to my brother), Red Rising Art Print and The Long Way to A Small, Angry Planet art print both of which make me want to read their books a lot.
Overall I really liked everything I got in this box. I think I did love November's box a bit more but that was partly because there was a tote bag and a mug and both of those are my weaknesses! Next month's theme is Mystery and Mischief and you can check it out here if you'd like more information! I have an inkling of what next month's book will be and it makes me very excited plus the description mentions the circus which is my favourite thing in the world!  

You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading.


  1. Nice stuff. I love those Star Wars Funko's...

    1. Same! I really want to collect a lot of the Star Wars Funkos! But I love that I got the one I most wanted!

  2. Very cool! One of these days I want to try a subscription box. :)

    1. I've been looking out for one for a long time and this was the first (book releated) one I tried - I am loving it so far and definitely recommend it! :)
