Being a visual person, it’s hard not to be drawn towards incredible book cover design. I’m really enjoying the current trend towards using hand illustrated elements on book covers.

    FairyLoot Subscription box – January Unboxing

    Okay, so we all know by now I fricking love a subscription box,  I honestly can’t get enough of them. Over the years I’ve tried a lot: art & craft boxes; kawaii boxes and the like. The first box I receive have usually been okay, but nothing amazing or special. Generally I end up cancelling them soon after because the price point never seems great for the contents. This month I decided to test out a Book subscription box. As you can probably guess from my previous posts, I love love love a good fantasy book, especially YA fantasy. So the natural choice for my next subscription box was the…
