Sea, mermaids and whichever marine creature, who’s not drawn at least a bit to them? I was so excited at the ‘Under the sea’ theme reveal.
And l I was pleasantly surprised to find a book on my Hot off the press September. But I will dive into it in a bit! As usual, Fairyloot didn’t let me down and has some precious sea-themed gadgets for this month.
For who doesn’t know yet, Fairlyloot is a monthly book box subscription. Born in 2016 from the idea of the two bookworms founders, Anissa and Michael. The box contains a recently released (or due to be released) Young Adult/Fantasy book and five to six bookish goodies, all following a theme for the month.
First and foremost a lovely MUG with the characters from “To kill a kingdom” by Alexandra Christo designed by @gabriellaragusi! My love for mugs since I was young always got me in trouble with my dad. He always said and still does, that I won a mug too many! I haven’t read this book yet, but I will absolutely have to because of the fantastic art on it!
The second item that I totally loved was the pair of Ombre Metal Straws in the box. I absolutely love that the team adds some re-usable items too. How can you not love the colour and the beachy quotes on them?
Then there’s a colourful Pencil Case designed by Ink and Wonder. It features a quote from “Sea Witch” by Sarah Henning. Perfect to treasure your shells when on a beach walk.
The next item was an Unfortunate Soul Keychain inspired by the one and only Ursula! Designed by @loveyoumorestudio. I love the quote on it and the colours, so it’s a good add on to my keys!
Next, there was a Hair De- Tangling Brush illustrated by @taratjah . This will always come in handy to have in a bag and take around or ready for you after a long day at sea.
Last but not least, was a Postcard from Atlantis, the lost city, designed by @taratjah.

Drum roll please!
The featured book this month was “Fable” by Adrienne Young. I was very excited to get this in the box as I had to on my list. In addition that special edition with sprayed edges and cover is amazing! Can’t wait to get into it! Also, the additional art behind the reader’s letter was designed by @nir4z.
Welcome to a world made dangerous by the sea and by those who wish to profit from it. Where a young girl must find her place and her family while trying to survive in a world built for men.
For seventeen-year-old Fable, the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home she has ever known. It’s been four years since the night she watched her mother drown during an unforgiving storm. The next day her father abandoned her on a legendary island filled with thieves and little food. To survive she must keep to herself, learn to trust no one, and rely on the unique skills her mother taught her. The only thing that keeps her going is the goal of getting off the island, finding her father, and demanding her rightful place beside him and his crew. To do so Fable enlists the help of a young trader named West to get her off the island and across the Narrows to her father.
But her father’s rivalries and the dangers of his trading enterprise have only multiplied since she last saw him, and Fable soon finds that West isn’t who he seems. Together, they will have to survive more than the treacherous storms that haunt the Narrows if they’re going to stay alive.
