As of November, I hadn’t purchased another Fairyloot book box since my Whimsical Journeys one for my birthday in April, but when I saw that they were releasing a special science fiction themed one for sci-fi month I knew I needed to grab a box as sci-fi is my favourite genre! The theme for November was ‘Battles and Galaxies’, promising a box of 7 sci-fi goodies inspired by Illuminae, Red Rising and the Lunar Chronicles alongside a fantastic new YA sci-fi book. Let me tell you – it definitely did not disappoint!
Although I haven’t purchased anymore of the Fairyloot box boxes since my first one in April, which I received as a birthday gift from my partner, I keep a frequent eye on their social media to see what each monthly theme is. For the past few months, I haven’t seen any that interested me but last week they announced their November box on Instagram – Battles and Galaxies. I was really, really over the moon because I feel that Fairyloot, and other book boxes, tend to focus on fantasy and I have been eagerly waiting for a science fiction themed book box!
I didn’t have a book tag planned for today but after seeing this one on Norrie and Kristin‘s blogs, I really wanted to do it. Sometimes book tags can end up feeling all the same but I liked that these questions were a bit different – so here are my answers!
After doing lots of research for my ‘Are Book Crates Worth It?‘ I decided to give Fairyloot a try for my birthday! It’s really nice to have a UK company so I can give the expensive US shipping attached to other popular book boxes a miss and I loved the look of all of Fairyloot’s previous boxes. This is the first book box I’ve ever received and it was a nice birthday surprise from my partner ❤ Slightly annoyingly, the box ended up shipping about 2 weeks late due to one of the items being sent significantly late so it wasn’t the best start but I was super excited when my box finally arrived!
Two pieces of awesome news all wrapped up into one little parcel for you all today!
For those of you who didn’t know, Sunday April 15th was my 26th birthday and I got some really lovely presents including lots of books which I obviously have to share with you all. But first, something even more exciting – announcing the winner of my signed copy of THUG!
