i was lucky enough to be able to snag the last, first-ever Wonder Girl Box and i’m so happy i did so! this monthly book box company is brand new and run the lovely girls, Karlynn (@wondergirlreads) and Alley (@alleyparton) from (@wondergirlbox) who by the way, were so extremely nice and caring when it came to customer support! the ABSOLUTELY amazing thing about this box is that each box gives back. Wonder Girl Box works with incredible organizations that helps empower girls through education and become leaders of change!
the theme of the February box was ‘I Love Me’ and it was centered around self acceptance and loving & caring for yourself. they also partnered with CAMFED this month, an organization which supports woman AND girls in less fortunate areas of sub-Saharan Africa to give the means to become leaders of change in and out of their communities.
this first-ever Wonder Girl Box had a list of goodies plus a young adult book including:
- a ‘Don’t Forget to Love Yourself’ print which i love and it is going up on my wall immediately so i can remind myself this everyday!
- a lollipop with a cute message, mine said you are amazing and made me smile.
- a pair of classic lit ‘Thou Art the Bomb’ from Blue Q oh my do i love these! they’re super cute, soft and i can’t wait to use them for #socksunday
- a ‘Self Care Index’ from Free Period Press which is a pocket guide for keeping track of all your favorites! a great pick me up to look at if your ever just not feeling it.
- 6 handmade soy blend wax melts from Pearl Rose Candle Co. and it is hands down my absolute FAVORITE goodie in this box they’re so beautiful and they smell sooo good! the scent is called ‘Love Dust’ and contains raw honey, cocoa butter and chocolate. i CANNOT wait to put these in my wax warmer and just be engulfed in this wonderful scent!
- last but, not least is… the book! this months book was ‘A Tragic Kind of Wonderful’ by Eric Lindstrom. i hadn’t heard of this book before but once i read the synopsis (continue below for book info) i got really keen to read it! it sounds like such a wonderful (pun indeed intended) book with topics not often explored in YA books.

For sixteen-year -old Mel Hannigan, bipolar disorder makes life unpredictable. Her latest struggle is balancing her growing feelings in a new relationship with her instinct to keep everyone at arm’s length. And when a former friend confronts Mel with the truth about the way their relationship ended, deeply buried secrets threaten to come out and upend her shaky equilibrium.
As the walls of Mel’s compartmentalized world crumble, she fears the worst—that her friends will abandon her if they learn the truth about what she’s hiding. Can Mel bring herself to risk everything to find out? (source)
