Fairyloot Unboxing -Mutinous Pirates August Box

Hey booknerds! I have an unboxing for you today! This is the August Fairyloot box and the theme was Mutinous Pirates! I was so excited for this box not only because I love the theme but also because they said they were going to include a sampler of King of Scars! It’s safe to say that I absolutely loved it! One of my favourite boxes this year!

So lets get to the unboxing! So here is what was included in this months box:

The first item in this box is the Nikolai quote banner (grisha trilogy). He is one of my favourite characters and I’m so happy to have an item inspired by him! Designed by @Reverieandink

The next item was the To Kill A Kingdom inspired candle. It’s inspired by Prince Elian, it has gold glitter on top and smells amazing! Made by @nerdpouredcandles

Top 5 Wednesdays

Top 5 Wednesday – Redemption Arcs

Hey booknerds! It’s another Top 5 Wednesday post! This is hosted by Sam over on Thoughts on Tomes where you share you top 5 for the chosen topic for that week. You can check out each weeks topic over on Goodreads.

So this weeks topic is redemption arcs. So I’m going to discuss characters that I want redemption arcs for!

There’s always characters who we love but end up going down a dark road and we just want them to come back to the good side and get some sort of redemption so here are some of the characters that I really want to see get some sort of redemption.

1 The Darkling from the Grisha trilogy – I seriously need a redemption arc for him. He was my favourite character in the trilogy and it’s rare for me to love the villain more than the heroes but I absolutely love the darkling!

2 Tamlin from the ACOTAR trilogy – yes, the way he treated Feyre was not okay, at all, but I feel like he doesn’t deserve the hate he gets. I mean I actually want to see more of him in the new books and how his character progresses.

3 Amar from A Place For Us – I read this book recently and it was heartbreaking and I really want to see a Amar come back and make amends because I loved his character so much

4 Luke from the Percy Jackson series – I really want a redemption arc for him! He deserves another chance and I really felt for him by the end of the series

5 Boromir from The Lord of the Rings – he was just trying to impress his crazy dad okay? I feel like if he had been given a second chance he would have been a much better person.

So there you have it! Do you think these characters deserve a redemption arc?

What characters would you like redemption arcs for?
