Fairyloot Review ~ July 2018 The Power Within

Source: Fairyloot Instagram

I have been obsessed with book subscription boxes for a few months now, and have probably spent close to $500 in the last few months, and I don't even subscribe to it regularly. So far I have only physically received 2 boxes, and one awaiting for shipment in my US postal address, so technically received 3. 

Book subscription boxes are monthly subscription mostly pertaining to a theme, mainly selected around their book of the month, which is included in the box. Along with the book of the month, they pick other books that fit into the theme, and create "inspired by" fandoms from said books. 

Book sub boxes are mostly monthly, but Illumicrate based in the UK are per quarter. However, most, if not all, allow you to make single purchases, so you can choose and pick which boxes you want. There is a catch, you are not told what ANY of the items are, including the book of the month. They do give hints, supplier reveals and the books that the fandoms are based on.

Today I'm reviewing the popular Young Adult book subscription box Fairyloot, based in the UK. Their theme for July was The Power Within.

Veronica Roth Event

Source: Sydney Writer's Festival

I am so excited to talk to you about Veronica Roth's Australia visit! Living in Sydney, we don't get nearly as much Author signings as our fellow US readers, so when someone as HUGE as Veronica Roth comes to town...we get VERY excited! So without further ado, this was Veronica's visit at Seymour Theatre for Sydney Writer's Festival.

While Rafi has been taught to charm, Frey has been taught to kill. Frey only exists to protect her sister. There is no other part of her life. Frey has never been out in the world on her own – until her father sends her in Rafi’s place to act as collateral for a dangerous deal. Everyone thinks she’s her sister – but Col, the son of a rival leader, is starting to get close enough to tell the difference. As the stakes grow higher and higher, Frey must decide whether she can trust him – or anyone in her life.

Elliot is terrified of almost everything.

From the moment he was born, his life has been governed by acute fear. The only thing that keeps his terrors in check are the pills that he takes every day.

She'll only be 10 minutes - but when she doesn't come back, Elliot must face his fears and try to find her. She should only be 400 meters away. It might as well be 400 miles...

Born Scared by Kevin Brooks is a unique story about a day in the life of a teen who is anxious and scared of the world, but when his Mother goes missing in search of his much needed medication, he soon finds himself venturing outside, first time in a long time, to find and maybe save his Mother.
