I got this Wednesday night, but decided to post today because I really didn’t want to post later. It also took me a day, with trying to pass my NEWTS, to take photos. The following is my reaction to getting it, immediately after I got it:
It is here! Oh my gosh it is here! When I picked it up it rattled and I didn’t know what that meant. I was really afraid something broke, but nope! We are all good! This box is also amazing. August has been a great month for book boxes. This time we get two photos because so many of these things are changeable or reversible.
August 2019 Fairyloot Box: Things Are Not What They Seem
What the Box contains:
- The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen, signed and with exclusive art on the inside cover.
- The Merciful Crow Pencil Case/ Tote
- One Ring to Rule Them All Pocket Mirror by Fairy Loot
- Lunar Cutler Set by Fairy Loot with design on box by @taratjah.

- Cresswell Candle based on Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco by @flickthewick and art by @taratjah
- Two more Tarot Cards with art by @loweana.art: The Star and The Hanged Man
Things I’ll use: First off, I want to say that while I can’t use everything I loved everything in this box. So lets go and save my favorite items for last. Lets talk Tarot cards: Hermione and Harry. They were super easy to spot. I’m 4 away from a complete set, which is cool. The pencil case is going to go with my other totes. It’s exciting. The Graceling hair scrunchies. When I saw them I almost died. I love the Graceling series so much and the hair scrunchies are good ones. I’m so afraid of ruining them I might not use them at all, but I really should.
Inscriptions on Pillowcase: You will burn for you are an ember in the ashes.
Inscription on bag: One way or another, we always feed the crows.
Top Three: The One Ring Mirror, I saw this and started laughing uncontrollably. When I see the spoiler information for the boxes, I avoid it, so I had no idea it would be in there. First off, I love pocket mirrors. Second off its Tolkien and it’s inscribed. How can you not love that?
The Mistborn metal bookmark. Now I have not read Brandon Sanderson yet, I know criminal, but I have heard good things about his writing. What gets me is not only the color of this bookmark (I love it), but the fact that it is metal. It is def going to become one of my most used book marks in the future. It says: Let them see my weakness and let them see me overcome it.
My favorite Item: The cutlery set. This is what I heard rattling and it is just so beautiful.
Look at it.
The inscription on the fork says: Even in the future the story begins with once upon a time.
The inscription on the spoon says: Mirrors have an uncanny way of telling the truth.
I have never had a cutlery set before and iI didn’t think I needed this one, but I do. I did need this one, it is so gorgeous. I love it so much.
Things I probably won’t use: The candle and the pillowcase. I will save the pillowcase for something else like a reading room one day, but for now I won’t use it. The candle I can’t use because of the whole scent issue.
Book: This book already sounds exciting, but as I have said, it won’t be read until October. Next month is all about the series rereads, and completing other series. I am super pumped for this book, so I hope that ever. I think this was on my list of books to read, but who knows I have so many books on my list of books to read. It probably is.
This box was amazing. I am super pleased. Moving into September I only have my Fairy Loot box coming in, so that will only be one box. I’ll figure out how to supplement the content. In general, I think that I will be getting out a lot more book reviews thanks to all the ones I’ve had stacked up from this month.
Until Next Time,
