Fairyloot Unboxing – December Dragons Box

Hey booknerds! I’ve got an unboxing for you today! This is the December fairyloot box and it was dragon themed! When I heard the theme I just had to buy it! I absolutely love dragons so I seriously needed this box and it did not disappoint. I really loved what was included.

This month they included a pin flag which I loved because I hoard enamel pins and I needed a flag to put them on.

They included a mother of dragons magnetic bookmark set too. Unfortunately mine was missing but they did email everyone and say that they would be sending it out separately if it was missing.

They also included a reading journal which is all dragon themed! I loved using the previous one they included so I love that they included another one. It was designed by FictionTea Designs and the artwork was by Blanca Montiel.

There was also a Harry Potter inspired book sleeve designed by Sweet Sequels and inspired by the scene where the trio escape Gringotts on a dragon. The artwork on the sleeve is stunning!

They included a double sided art print. The artwork of Toothless on one side and Abraxos on the other. My two favourite dragons! I squealed when I saw the print! The beautiful artwork is by Diana Worak.

They also included a glow in the dark dragon necklace! I love it so much! I especially love that it glows in the dark.

This month they also included an ARC. They included an advance copy of the Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson. It sounds really good and I’m looking forward to reading it.

This months book is Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst which is a standalone fantasy story. This edition is also signed by the author and includes an author letter and character artwork by Taratjah. I’m really looking forward to reading the book!

So that’s everything included in the box and they also included the first of the tarot cards. This month was Cassian and Amren.

I really loved this box and everything that was included and I’m really looking forward to getting the January Unbreakable Bonds box.

Percy Jackson Nerdy Post Box Unboxing

Hey booknerds! So this is another Nerdy Post box unboxing! This was a special one off box based on Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series. As soon as I heard them announce the box I knew I had to buy it! I adore this series and I can never find much merch for it.

I absolutely love this box and I am so glad I was able to buy it. Me and my sisters all bought a box and the nerdy post team were kind enough to combine the boxes so that I wouldn’t have to pay multiple shipping.

So lets get to the unboxing!

So the first item in the box was a beautiful art print with the quote: If my life is going to mean anything, I have to live it myself.

The next item was an iron on patch which says Camp-Half Blood!

A mini print inspired by Grover Underwood with the quote: Remake the wild a little at a time. I love it so much especially as Grover is so underrated.

A second mini print inspired by Annabeth Chase and one of my favourite characters! The quote says: Even strength must bow to wisdom sometimes. This is also one of my favourite quotes!

They also included an enamel pin of Blackjack which says Hey boss. Blackjack is Percy’s Pegasus and I love it!

There was a double sided bookmark which I love getting in these boxes! One side says: Look I didn’t want to be a half blood. And the other side says: Seaweed Brain. I love this nickname that Annabeth gives Percy.

There was also a beautiful booksleeve which shows the hippocampi or as Tyson calls them, Fish Ponies!

There was a sticker which says: I can do this, probably. I relate to this quote so much!

As this was the ultimate they also included a candle which is called Ol’ Barnacle Beard which was made by My Wick of Tea. It smells amazing!

IMG_0229

The last item was a badge. In my photo you can see all 3 variations as I ordered 4 boxes (for my sisters) They tell you who your godly parent and which cabin you belong in. You could have gotten: Poseidon, Athena or Hades. I still haven’t decided which I want to keep and which to let my sisters fight it out over!

So that’s everything included in the box! I loved this box so much! I adore the Percy Jackson series and I am so happy to finally have amazing merch for these books!

There was also a t-shirt which had a Nico Di Angelo quote and I wish I could have gotten that too.
