Owlcrate March 2018 Unboxing

This Across the Galaxthemed Owlcrate was absolutel out of this world! (see what I did there! okay awkward jokes over) But seriously this box featured some amazing items, and inspired me to read The Illuminae Files, which I absolutely loved. So before I keep gushing, let’s get down to what was in this box. There is also an unboxing video that you can find down below!

  1. A candle by “Wick and Fable”, there were two different scents sent out, and I received Kady Grant, which has an orange sent to it
  2. Guardians of the Galaxy Funko Pop was sent out and multiple ones were sent of this as well. I received Yondu!
  3. If you don’t have a bookmark by Lexy Olivia you are missing out. You can find her Etsy shop here    This bookmark features the most renowned quote from the Star Wars saga
  4. We also received a gorgeous purple galaxy print infinity scarf that was made by Owlcrate. This has to be one of my favorite items
  5. Finally we received a mug with a quote from the Lunar Chronicles designed by Sasha Natasha

Can we talk about the book for a second?! The book is stained with PURPLE PAGES!! You have no idea how excited I was to see  Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston, with this already amazing cover have stained pages as well. They look absolutely phenomenal.

You can find up close pictures of these items on my Instagram page as well as see them in my unboxing video! I hope you enjoyed this box as much as I did! What was your favorite item, I can’t wait to hear them. Until next time,

Decatur Book Festival 2017!

I know I’m really behind on putting up this post, but better late than never right?! This year I went to the Decatur Book Festival with my mother and with Maddy and I had a fantastic time. There were tons of big authors there including Leigh Bardugo, Jason Reynolds, and Nnedi Okorafur. I’ve lived in Atlanta my whole life and have gone to the Decatur Book festival a few times with my mother when I was younger, but I never really paid attention to the author line up and did not know they got such big and amazing authors to do panels at DBF.  The festival is held every year during Labor Day weekend in downtown Decatur, and there is a lot of food, festivities, and books to keep you entertained the whole weekend.  I managed to vlog the two days I was able to go this year so make sure to check them out!! Down below I also have a video of all of the books I got, and which ones I got signed from the author! Until next time,

The first day my mom and I went to the festival, but they weren’t quite ready yet, so I was just able to have a great afternoon with my mother walking around the beginnings of the festival.

 

On Saturday I woke up early and got down to Decatur to in order to go the different panels and get a tons of books signed. I bought way too many books this weekend!

Finally since my Saturday video was so long I wanted to just have a video where you got to meet my best friend in the entire world, and how we enjoyed the festival together, eating and everything, and buying a lot of books!

In this video you can see all of the great books I got and also got signed. I also got a lot of bookish merch from some great companies you can find online.

The CandleLit Box Unboxing!

I was so excited to receive this box in the mail!! It is a brand new book subscription box that the creator sent to me. Of course I’m going to give you my complete honest opinion.

You can watch my full unboxing video below, but I will give  you some highlights here, and let you know what it is about.

Basically The CandleLit Box is a book subscription box that caters to the whole experience of reading. It is a box that wants you to be comfortable and feel good when reading the book that is included. It also features books by black and brown authors, which is what also makes it amazing because of its commitment to deliver books by diverse authors.  I would definitely check out their website here and reclaim your time!

Until next time,

Movies…the visual’s book

never judge a book by movie

Not only do I love books, but I love movies as well. Especially books that have been turned into movies. I love to see exactly, or almost exactly, what the author had intended for his or her characters. What they looked like, how they move and how they react to different things.

Movies to me are similar to books in that they let you escape to a different place. You know you’re in a movie theater or on your couch, but for those 2 hours you are apart of that movie and what those characters are going through. What I like about books instead is that I can make up what the characters look like, and they affect me differently because it’s how I see the characters. Also I can put down the book when I don’t have time to read it. Unlike a movie I need to make sure that I have enough time to see it all or I get anxious about not seeing the whole thing.
What I always like to do is to attempt to read the book before I see the movie, especially if I was somehow unaware that there is a book. If I’ve read the book then sometimes I try to reread it, but that can be asking a little too much.
If you’ve noticed, if I have read the book and seen the movie I try to do a side by side post about it, so look out for those, and let me know what books I need to read, or what movies I need to see. Netflix and I are good friends!
Most of all though I have seen so many movie and plan on seeing so many more. Like The Hobbit, Life of Pi, and of course James Bond. Now that exams are over I might actually get to do that, and sit in my bed and read some books. Look out for my posts!
