Bookish Subscription Box: Fairy Loot “Retelling” Box



Hey guys! Today I picked up packages in the post office and guess what finally arrived?! MY FAIRY LOOT BOX!

Fairy Loot is a UK based monthly YA subscription box! The box contains one hardcover YA book along with 3 to 4 bookish goodies. Their main focus is fantasy (thus the name) but they will also consider other genres like contemporaries, dystopian or historical fiction from time to time.

The theme for March box is “Retelling” which I love, so I am very excited! Okay, I know I have you waited long enough for the unboxing, so without further adieu, here’s Fairy Loot’s March box:

First of all here’s the box:

Their logo is really pretty! This is giving me a lot of Tinkerbell vibe. I’m giving the guy at the post office my most intimidating side eye because my box looks a little battered. Good thing everything inside is perfect!

So here’s what you see when you first open the box:

The book was The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury! It comes with a Signed bookplate and a bookmark! Awesome! This book is a retelling of the classic tale of Aladdin. This was reviewed and praised by the queen herself, Sarah J. Maas and the truly talented author of the Lunar Chronicles (which is also a retelling of classic fairytales), Marissa Meyer. I am so excited to get to this! Squeezing it to my TBR!!

This is a really cool idea!

Checked this one just a couple of minutes ago! So the purpose of this little card is BUDDY READING! Which is super nice! They will give you and another box owner a unique hashtag that only you and other person has so you can buddy read the book! Cool right! Genius, Fairy Loot! 🙂

So my hashtag is #FairyLootAphrodite whoever my buddy reader is, please stand up! XD

  1. This is all so lovely! I hesitated about getting the box myself because it’s shipped all the way from the UK to the US but I might just have to consider getting it. I’ve subscribed to OwlCrate a few months and have enjoyed them. 🙂
