Today I have another unboxing for you… Yes another one. I love Book Mail.
Today’s is for the March Box for Fairyloot. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Fairyloot they are a bookish monthly subscription based here in the UK. (They do ship worldwide)
I adore Fairyloot every month and it’s a special treat I’ve been getting myself for a fair few months now. This month’s box was one I was particularly looking forward to because it was an anniversary box and the theme was ‘Memorable Moments.’
Today I am coming at you with my first ever Unboxing for the J.K Rowling Wizarding World Crate produced by Loot Crate. I’m sure you all know how much of a crazy Harry Potter fangirl I am, I mean I talk about it ALL the time.
The J.K Rowling’s Wizarding World Box costs £39.00 with shippingincluded so it may seem a little on the pricey side but it only ships every odd month whereas other subscriptions boxes ship every month and cost around the same. I personally like how it’s only a subscription box that ships every odd month rather than every month, it makes me more excited to receive it.
This months theme was ‘Enchanting Essentials.’ There are numerous plans you can pick for this box depending on your size and house because all their boxes come with at least one item of clothing. I, myself chose Gryffindor and the Medium size because I tend to wear the t-shirts to bed.
Gosh it has been 22 days since I last posted or interacted here on my blog… it feels like a lifetime. So where have I been?
Considering I’ve been gone from blogging for just over 3 weeks I figured I needed to do a post to explain my absence. I have posted some things on twitter for those who follow me on their but a lot of you don’t and you deserve an explanation as to why I dropped off the edge of the world for a little while.
Over the past 3 weeks a lot has happened in my life, university has begun to get stressful and many deadlines are looming over me. As you will know I am studying for a Master’s Degree and will be finished in September, so you can imagine the amount of essays looming as well as the Dissertation. So I took a few days to try to get myself organised, but then my nan got ill and rushed into hospital, there was a death close to our family, work commitments, being snowed in and missing uni and having to catch up… I was tearing my hair out. I was and still am so stressed but today I feel motivated to come onto my blog and return. I have missed it so so much.
I miss reading posts, posting and just interacting with everyone.
As I write this I have no ideas of what post to write next because I haven’t read anything for fun in 3 weeks… just articles for university. I am going to brain storm and get my creativity bug back and start reading a book.
I want to take a moment to thank every single person who has reached out to me, DM’d me, tweeted me, commented. Everything.
Over the past three weeks you have helped me so much and whilst I was struggling, it felt so good to know people were rooting for me to come back.
I can’t wait to make a proper comeback. If there is any posts you would like to see the most please comment and let me know. and please accept my apologies for leaving you. I feel so guilty, as if I have abadonded you. I’m sorry for that!
Thank you for your constant support, thank you for your commitment to me.
Today I am coming back at you with a Fairyloot Unboxing. I’ve been buying the Fairyloot Subscription box for over a year now and I want to start sharing the unboxing’s with you because I love it so much. This month’s theme was Twisted Tales.
The February ‘Twisted Tales’ box was described as being perfect for fans of dark fairy-tales and The Grimm fairy-tales. We could expect items themed on Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel and Rapunzel.
Without further ado let’s get to the goodies that were in this months box.
Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday. It feels like forever since i’ve done one of these…I’m nothing but non-consistent I know. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme set up by The Broke and the Bookish, it has now since moved to the site of That Artsy Reader Girl.
This weeks topic is ‘Books I Could Re-read Forever.’
Happy Valentines Day! Considering it’s February 14th I thought I would do a special Valentines post sharing with you my Top Ten OTP [One True Pairings]. Choosing just ten was so hard but I finally managed to dwindle it down. All of these are couples which have stayed with me since reading the series, they are characters I rooted so hard for as I read the books and characters that have not left me since.
In no particular order here are my Top Ten Couples/ OTP…
Please note for some of these I have included fanart; I have tried to include the artists names but sadly could not find them all. Images belong to their artists.
Today I am coming at you with the Goodreads Book Tag. It feels like forever since I’ve done a tag and the wonderful Kat @lifeandotherdisasters tagged me to do this. This is one I have never heard of before so I was so excited to give it a go.
What was the last book you marked as ‘read’?
The last book I marked as read on Goodreads was Follow Me by Sara Shepard. This is book 2 following The Amateurs and it focuses on a group of teens helping to solve murders. Its one I’ve been hooked on and I will have my review up soon.
My Spoiler Free Review of The Amataurs (Book 1) Can Be Found Here.
It’s officially the end of the month which means Wrap Up Time!
I’m not sure how I feel about January being over, the month seemed both to drag and go so fast at times. In terms of how I thought January went, I think the month went great for me. I had some bad moments with my anxiety but overall right now I feel happier.
I’m getting so much better on not pressuring myself in my university work, blogging and reading and I hope it continues.
Today I wanted to do my 2018 Young Adult Releases I’m Excited For. Partially because i’m so excited for these books to be released and partially because I want to make your TBR’S longer!
You need to get these onto your radar!
A bunch of these books are from series I am halfway through and it feels like I have been waiting forever for these next books. Especially War Storm by Victoria Aveyard!
I’ve been thinking lately how I don’t really set New Year’s Resolutions but this year something has been nagging at me to set them for my reading and blogging goals. The end of 2016 and start of 2017 were hard times and 2017 was a year of so many exciting things for me such as graduating from university. I hold a BA in English Literature now. I got accepted onto two masters programme’s and chose to do an MA in English Studies. My blog reached 500 followers, I started receiving Physical Arcs, I got invited to go down to London to an exhibition as part of a blogger/press thing. (I couldn’t go but the opportunity was still amazing)
But the year was also really hard, my anxiety gave me so many hurdles I had to try jump over. My dad, brother and sister all had health scares. We are losing another love one who is fighting a battle with cancer. 2018 will be another hard year but I’m pledging here and now that i’m also going to make sure it’s an amazing one.
So here are my 2018 Reading and Blogging specific goals:
