FLoot Keep.jpg

August 2018

Theme: Mutinous Pirates

Avast ye bookworms!

I was so excited about this box! I had a guess at the book and I was right! Have been dying to read this!



‘Why is the rum gone’ water bottle by KDP Letters. Possibly my favourite swag item in the box!! And it came with a cloth holder so I can carry it around!

Prince Elian Candle by Nerd Poured Candles. I loved To Kill a Kingdom and this just smells delish!

A Pirate Wax Seal….I’m not really sure what I’ll do with this but I’m going to grab the instructions and have a play around!

Sweat Peat Sugar Scrub Soap by Geeky Clean……can’t have a dirty pirate!!!

‘Impossible’ hanging flag by Reverie and Ink. I love the idea of this but it has a spelling error but Fairyloot are going to replace it!

A Pirate Magnet by Miss Phi. This has a quote from Daughter of the Pirate King (loved that book) and now has pride of place on my fridge!

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo sampler/poster. I’m in 2 minds about reading this. I hate reading bits of books when I know I haven’t got the rest to read!!!!!


Book of the Month


These Rebel Waves by Sarah Raasch

I so wanted this book and it has sprayed pages and is signed by the author. I LOVE it!

I could not have been more happy with this box. I was so happy when I opened it!

June’s theme is REBELS IN BALLGOWNS!


  • An exclusive ‘Corvere’ candle by Geeky Clean inspired by Nevernight in honour of the Great Tide Gala. Strawberry and pepper scented, which I thought was odd but actually is rather lovely!
  • Cushion cover by Miss Phi featuring a quote from Legendary. My bed is going to be full of cushions soon and I couldn’t be happier!

  • A completely fabulous Masquerade Mask Necklace which I am going to wear on nights out.
  • Iron on patch by Ink and Wonder that I’m going to iron on to one of my book sleeves.
  • And the creme de la creme……an exclusive READING JOURNAL designed by Fictiontea Designs and Stella’s Bookish Art. Guys, this is just the best ever. I need something like this in my life and believe I actually screamed when I saw it! In fact I may do a future post on how I get on with it!
  • The book of the month is Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart and it’s an exclusive hardcover! Apparently it’s a feminist fantasy that has fierce sisters, rebellion and yes, a ball!

March Fairyloot Unboxing *spoilers ahead!*

Love getting my Fairyloot box, its their 2 year anniversary box this month and it’s purple!!! (You know I’m making a book shelf with that!)

Unboxing: JK Rowling’s Wizarding World (my 1st box)…..

I thought I would try Lootcrate as they had a Harry Potter box (JK Rowlings Wizarding World) and I had a money off coupon!


Theme = The Ties That Bind

Hogwarts house tie

I got Gryffindor and I gave this to my son who loves it!

Rowena Ravenclaws Diadem pin

I love the idea of owning a Horcrux!!! I wanted to pin this to my book sleeve but alas I cannot get the back of the pin off to remove from the cardboard!

Wand book

‘Explore the famous wands of the Wizarding World and the wizards they chose.’

I’m just not sure about this. I mean I’ll have a flick through but it’s not something that really interests me although the finish is excellent.

Black Family Tree Tapestry Scarf

Now this, I love. I’m yet to peruse the actual names on the scarf but I am fascinated with anything Sirius so I really thought this was great.


I ordered this box on 27 December 2017. It actually arrived on 28 February 2018. I did have an email saying it would be late due to a supplier delay but I thought this was a bit excessive.

They also send me an email everyday about their hundreds of other boxes and I’m starting to feel like I’m being spammed (have now unsubscribed!)

Do you get any Lootcrate boxes?

Tell me what you think.

CJR The Brit: Fairyloot Unboxing *contains spoilers*

I did a huge scream when I opened this box.

Every month I am so excited to open Fairyloot when it arrives but this month has beat them all!! I coveted every.single.item in here!

The book was The Cruel Prince by Holly Black and I was so happy! I read an arc of this in December so to have it in hardcover made my month!

Following on from The Cruel Prince theme there is a Prince Cardan candle made by Meraki Candles and apparently how Holly Black imagines him to smell!
