So, by now everyone has received and cooed over their April Illumicrate boxes – I cannot see how you couldn’t when this box was AWESOME! Every single item in this box was perfect and Descendant of the Crane, the book fo the month, was one of the best reads of this year.
But let me show you some pictures, so you can see that for yourselves….
Now let me talk a little bit about Descendant of the Crane by Joan He because I am so full of feelings after finishing this gorgeous book. Needless to say, this was a 5 stars read for me, but what surprised me with this novel is the beauty of the writing, the unexpected twists and turns that kept on coming and the characters that feel alive in their goals and motivation against the backdrop of political instability. Hesina rises to the throne as queen and requests an investigation under her father’s murder, but things are never as they seem and this book is a journey of finding and losing oneself. The mystery, intrigue and magic blends beautifully under the penmanship of Joan He. This book was perfect for our Illumicrate Readalong on goodreads.
We need more of this world, we need more of Joan’s writing because I am a human addicted on her words.
What did you guys think of this box? Have you read Descendant of the Crane? Thoughts?

I recently discovered Fairyloot and I have received my first box in August. The August theme was Otherworlds and I am really impressed with the efforts that they’ve put into creating this box. If you are following me on Instagram (here), then you’ve already seen my unboxing video and photos, but if you haven’t click here!
Now you might wonder what Fairyloot is and why I am raving so much about it. Baiscally, Fairyloot is an London based subscription box service (ships international) created by Anissa and her partner, Michael. Each month there is a new theme. Now you see why I’m loving this so much?
I am going to say again: I love @Fairyloot! 😍
💞The first item that I saw when I opened it was an Exclusive Witchsoul Candle from @bookandnookshop; I received Witchsoul Anais and it smells delicious!
💞A Fictional Worlds sleeping mask was also included and that’s amazing because I can’t sleep if there’s any light in my room, so I’m very pleased with this.
💞The most exciting item for me was the handmade Velaris pendant from @OhPandaEyes featuring a quote from A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas.😍 I’ve not read the book yet, however the necklace is positively gorgeous!
💞I love drinking tea, so the Westeros tea strainer was an amazing add-on! Totally in love with it and I can’t wait to use it. 🍵
💞 An exclusive Neverland notebook hand painted by @TJLubrano was also included.
💞Magnetic bookmarks – amazing! Lord of the Rings magnetic bookmarks by @PaperlyandCo. – OMG I’M IN HEAVEN!
💞This box also included a beautiful artwork by Melissa Nettleship featuring Northern Lights!
💞And last, but certainly not least: Wicked like Fire by Lana Popovic @lanalyte with a signed bookplate and letter from the author. 😍 I’ve heard a lot about this book so I am really excited to pick it up! The box also contains a few bonus items: Godsgrave sampler, Blackwing Sampler, and a mini backdrop discount coupon.
The Fairyloot September theme is All that Sass and I am so looking forward to receiving it! Unfortunately all the boxes for the month of September have sold out, so I feel pretty lucky to have had time to snatch one up as I got it as single purchase, rather than subscribing (yet!). The October theme is Villanous!
