Starting off the morning right. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ“–β˜•οΈ
Okay, this Illuminae/themed candle that I got in my March OwlCrate box is ACTUALLY THE COOLEST. Look at it...look at it! It's like a little galaxy in a candle. I'm so mesmerized at how the glitter and colors swirl together as if it were really made up of stars and nebula.

Thank you SO much to both @owlcrate and @wickandfable for this breathtaking candle and for providing a bit of atmosphere lighting while I read Obsidio. πŸ’«πŸŒ‘

GUYS. I BOUGHT THE COOLEST THING TODAY. I saw this while out shopping and absolutely fell in love. I knew I couldn't walk out of the store without it. I've now found a new way to store my Harry Potter books and I could not be happier with my new trunk. I feel like I should be heading off for another year at Hogwarts! Either that or helping Newt Scamander stay out of trouble...
This month's March OwlCrate box came with so many goodies...including a book with purple pages! πŸ’œ Here are some of my other favorite items that came in this month's "Across the Galaxy" box.
It's occurred to me that I haven't yet shared photos of my incredible March OwlCrate box!

The theme for March was Across the Galaxy. πŸ’«πŸŒ— As someone who loves adventures through space, I was SO excited to receive this box! There were items inspired by two of my favorite sci-fi series, The Illuminae Files and The Lunar Chronicles, which was such a special treat for me. And the book pick for this month DEFINITELY seems like something I'm going to enjoy...plus it has purple pages! *squeal!* πŸ’œ

I got my hair cut today and not to brag but I look like Tina Goldstein, which is all I want in life. So enjoy this mini cosplay, featuring this charming and fun screenplay! πŸ’› I watched the movie recently and now you could say I'm a bit obsessed with Fantastic Beasts. I love all of the characters so much, and reading this screenplay is making me fall in love with the story all over again.
Okay, can we just talk about the ace color vibes of this book for a sec? πŸ’œ
I'M SO EXCITED THAT I FINALLY GET TO PARTICIPATE IN ONE OF THESE. πŸ’•

Through the month of February, my library is doing Blind Date With a Book, and today I finally perused the books and picked one out myself! I wanted to pick something totally different from what I've been reading and that, judging by the blurb, seemed like it would be lot of fun. I absolutely love the idea behind Blind Date with a Book. It's a great way to discover new books that you might not otherwise have picked up and is such a fun surprise once you find out what book you've picked. β€’

It's Valentines Day this week, so what better time to read this adorable collection of "how they met" stories, the first time couples meet before they fall in love.

It's funny, I'm not always super into romances, and I've always been one to say that romance shouldn't dictate how happy you are or how worthwhile your life is. But I really like the idea about this anthology, of giving us a glimpse only into the first moments when two people meet, before the relationship begins. Because sometimes it's those first impressions of each other that are the most worthwhile. β€’

(Also sorry in advanced that I have not updated on here in SO long. My mental health has nottttt been the best lately. But I hope this bright and cheerful post makes up for some of that. ❀️)

I think it goes without saying: Whatever your plans or relationship status, I hope everyone has a wonderful week, and just know that you are AWESOME. πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’›

One of my reading goals for 2018 is to read more middle grade novels, and I thought these two books were a very good place to start. I'm honestly SO, so excited to read both of these very soon. The stories seem so fun and whimsical...plus, you can't deny that these covers are GORGEOUS. I can't stop looking at them...
