The most recent theme for Fairy Loot was: Dragons – and if you’ve been on my blog for any time you will probably notice that I’m obsessed with dragons (and wyverns and the like). You can check out my most recent unboxing post for October’s box: Beautiful Deceptions. So I thought I would give you a little sneak peak of my upcoming unboxing post for December’s Fairy Loot as I wholeheartedly recommend them as my favourite monthly subscription box.
I have not subscribed to them on a monthly basis before, but I purchased the Kingdom of Ash Special Edition Box and was incredibly overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of the items in the box. Honestly, it was so worth the money and I will definitely be purchasing any future special edition boxes that are for book series that I love.
I did purchase a monthly box for December, just to see but it won’t arrive until Christmas Eve – so I cannot speak to the quality quite yet, but keep an eye out for an unboxing post!
I purchased a hangover crate (Queen of Air and Darkness) from Fae Crate and thought it was fantastic. I have also purchased the Bloodwitch one, which they actually worked with the author, Susan Dennard, on and I’m so excited. I just wanted to give you guys a little preview of why this box was so amazing (oh how I wish I had purchased the Kingdom of Ash box) before I posted my official unboxing post.
I have not tried their monthly boxes. The shipping cost is $9 and that just seems so pricey, so $43 for one month of a subscription box (that’s not Fairy Loot, which I know will never disappoint me) is hard to convince myself to try… but at some point, I’m sure I will.
Owlcrate is fun, and they’ve just started doing boxes themed to one book/series – which is awesome! You can check out my Ruthless Royals unboxing post. (Lost in the Bookstore coming soon!)
I wasn’t super impressed with the one month that I subscribed – but the thing I love about Litjoy Crate is that you can order a book only subscription, so if the book is a special edition you can still get it without getting the whole box. Plus, they have started to make trading cards, so they’re a fun thing to collect and you still get them even if you purchase the book only option.
Are there any YA book subscription boxes that you swear by? Ones I definitely need to check out? Let me know in the comments below!
