How I got it:
I bought it on Bookoutlet

The day before yesterday 😀
Why I want to read it:
A Wrinkle in Time is the book that made me a reader, and I just recently realized it was a series! So I definitely want to read them! I will also be using A Wrinkle in Time for the 2016 Popsugar challenge as a book I haven’t read since highschool (even though I was actually in the third or fourth grade when I read it)
