I love subscription boxes. There is nothing better than looking forward to a package of goodies every month to perk you up. Being a book nerd I had to check out a book subscription box, so I decided to give FairyLoot a try. Their ‘Oh So Regal’ theme sounded quite interesting and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
(If you don’t want to be spoiled to the contents of the box if you haven’t gotten yours yet, then you might not want to read this post until later.)
What is FairyLoot?:
For those of you who don’t know, FairyLoot is a monthly subscription box for book nerds and lovers of YA Fantasy. Every month they send out boxes curated around a specific theme with a hardcover newly released book and 5-6 bookish goodies.
(Please note these are rough conversions and do not include shipping.)
One Box Purchase: £26 ($34.77)
3-Month Subscription (Billed on the first day of every 3rd month): £78 ($104.31)
6-Month Subscription (Billed on the first day of every 6th month): £156 ($208.62)
What’s Inside the December box:
(Now keep in mind the contents of the boxes do vary month to month, but you do always get a hardcover book.)

Everless by Sara Holland with signed bookplate and letter from the author
Is the box worth it?:
I have to say FairyLoot left a good first impression on me. Everything is packaged professionally and opening the box is like opening a Christmas gift early. I loved sifting through the purple packing paper to find all the goodies inside, something new falling out each time I searched. It was exciting. Opening up the bag that holds the book and seeing the author letter and signed bookplate was pretty awesome and Everless certainly sounds like an interesting story to dive into. The fact that FairyLoot supports so many new and returning authors is amazing, spreading love and magic through the book community.
For the experience, I’d definitely say it’s worth it.
FairyLoot is expensive, however, if you’re outside of the UK. I only bought one box and it was about 54 dollars by the time shipping to the US and taxes were calculated into it. If you follow them on Twitter and Instagram and make sure to jump on a box that you’d really like, then the price makes up for itself in goodies. I can be a bit of a picky reader, so if there are themes where I know the book wouldn’t be my cup of tea, then I couldn’t see paying for a 3-6 month subscription. If you’ll read any and everything, then I definitely say go for it. A subscription plan would be great for a bookish holiday gift or birthday present for the book lover in your life.
FairyLoot is awesome and they do awesome work, so I highly recommend checking them out!!
