This month’s theme is “Fierce Fems”!  I always love a great female power box.

BookLoot arrives in a simple navy blue box with the logo sticker on top!

Upon opening the box, you can see how many goodies are packed inside!  I love how the artwork on the item list is the first thing that the subscriber sees.

 

Here is a closeup of the gorgeous artwork on the insert card!  The artwork is by Athena Warner.

I love how the item list describes each item in depth.  This helps the subscriber connect to the owners of the box – Sara and Eugene – as well as the theme!

The first item, my favorite item, is this tote by Paperly & Co.!  The tote says “be the heroine of your own story”, and I love that message!  BookLoot has worked with Paperly & Co. before, and I just love their items!  This is a great small business for bookish items.

 

The next item is a Celaena Sardothien Bath Bomb from Nerdie Nifties!  This bath bomb is based on the character from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, and I love the scent!  Bookish related bath products are definitely my thing.  Thank you, BookLoot!

Here is a closeup of the bath bomb!  The light blue color is just gorgeous, and it goes well with Celaena’s character.

The next item is a bookmark of Clary Fray from the book series The Mortal Instruments!  Clary is one of my favorite female characters of all time, so I adore this item!

This bookmark was made exclusively for BookLoot by Book Buddies Bookmarks!  I adore how many exclusive items BookLoot comes with.  This makes the box one of a kind!

The next item is this Katniss Everdeen bracelet by The Cherry Sue Boutique!  Katniss is a wonderful fierce fem, so I was happy to see her included.

The bracelet also came with a coupon for The Cherry Sue Boutique!

The next item is a short story called M.I.A. by A.D. Taylor!  BookLoot is unique because they publish a new short story each month from submissions that they receive.  I love the artwork that goes with this short story!  I always like trying new authors.

And now for the main attraction: the book!  I love how the book comes wrapped with swag so that it is protected.

This month’s book choice is The Traitor’s Kiss by Erin Beaty!  The book also came with a letter from the author, a signed bookplate, and bonus swag.  I always love receiving bonus goodies with the books.  It makes receiving the book more special!

Here is a synopsis of the book:

“An obstinate girl who will not be married.
A soldier desperate to prove himself.
A kingdom on the brink of war.

With a sharp tongue and an unruly temper, Sage Fowler is not what they’d call a proper lady―which is perfectly fine with her. Deemed unfit for a suitable marriage, Sage is apprenticed to a matchmaker and tasked with wrangling other young ladies to be married off for political alliances. She spies on the girls―and on the soldiers escorting them.

As the girls’ military escort senses a political uprising, Sage is recruited by a handsome soldier to infiltrate the enemy ranks. The more she discovers as a spy, the less certain she becomes about whom to trust―and Sage becomes caught in a dangerous balancing act that will determine the fate of her kingdom.

With secret identities and a tempestuous romance, Erin Beaty’s The Traitor’s Kiss is full of intrigue, espionage, and lies.”

Final Thought: This BookLoot box was great!  I adored the “Fierce Fems” theme and the items connected to characters I love.   I can always tell that BookLoot makes sure that their boxes are carefully packed and curated, and I appreciate that effort.  I also love how they support aspiring writers through their short story program.  If you are looking for a great young adult fiction box that sets itself apart from the others, then be sure and check out BookLoot!
