This is such a useful item! I rarely use cash when I’m out and about. Its compact and fits in my coat pocket – so no need for a bag on those days I’d like to leave with minimum effort. I love purple, so this goes with a few of my outfits too.
Six Crimson Cranes Inspired Socks
These are super cute pastel colour socks. I don’t have the book unfortunately, but these match the cover aesthetic. Always handy to have plenty of socks.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone Inspired Tapestry
Again, unfortunately I haven’t read the book. It has been on my TBR for a while though. I do love purple, so I can make this work in my reading room. I’ll probably hang it so that it falls along the back of my reading chair or down the side of my bookshelves. I love this artist and glad I finally have something created by them!
An Ember in the Ashes Inspired Enamel Pin
Hmm. This is another book that has been on my TBR (it is never ending). I’m a collector of book pins and this pin will have a place amongst my collection!
Beasts of Prey by Ayana Gray
Wow. This cover is stunning. The original cover is lovely too from what I’ve seen online, but this cover really pops. I can’t wait to read it! It’s out in February 2022!
Magic doesn’t exist in the broken city of Lkossa anymore, especially for girls like sixteen-year-old Koffi. Indentured to the notorious Night Zoo, she cares for its fearsome mythical creatures to pay off her family’s debts. But when they are threatened by the Zoo’s cruel master, Koffi unleashes a power she doesn’t fully understand.
As the son of a decorated hero, Ekon destined to become an elite warrior. Until a fire at the Night Zoo upends his future and, on the brink of his final rite of passage, Ekon is cast out – his reputation left in tatters.
For Koffi and Ekon, the outlook is bleak – unless they can capture the Shetani, the vicious monster that plagues their city. As Koffi and Ekon enter the Greater Jungle, a world steeped in wild magic and danger, the tentative alliance between them is tested to the extreme.
The hunt begins – but are they the hunters or the hunted?

Remember when I said I loved purple? This book is a dream! Look at the sprayed edges!

Overall this was a lovely box – especially for purple loving lil ol’ me. Each item can be used and the books are ridiculously stunning and I can’t wait to add them to my shelves! Are you subscribed to any book boxes? Which one is your favourite?
I have been on the waitlist for Fairloot for a while now and I actually managed to purchase this box from a private seller on Facebook for retail. I have also recently come off the wait list for Illumicrate, so future boxes will be Illumicrate until I move up the Fairyloot wait list! Both boxes are about to start an Adult Book only option in the new year and I’m so excited for that!
