We've made it to February, y'all! January seriously felt like it was never going to end, but at long last, we've entered the new month. And lucky for us, it's a short but busy one, filled with events like the Super Bowl, the Oscars, and Jack's death on This is Us (more on that in a bit).
So, without further ado, let's get started. Here's a recap of everything that had Bustle's editors talking today, Thursday, Feb. 1:
The Russia Investigation + Updates
According to new reports, there's a new focus in Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's alleged election interference. Mueller will apparently interview Mark Corrallo, a former spokesman for Trump's legal team who resigned due to concerns about possible obstruction of justice last July. Keep an eye on this...
Um, No: Trump said his SOTU speech was the most watched in history. Yeah, not even close.
Kim Kardashian + New Fragrances
After a whole lot of hype on Kim Kardashian's Instagram, Kimoji Heart Fragrances have been released. A few things to know: there are three scents, they're selling out fast, and no, they don't come with that chocolate PR packaging you've seen in photos. Hey, you can't have everything.
Heads Up: Skip the splurge and pick up one of these 27 Valentine's Day gifts under $10 for your loved one.
February + Fiction
Need new reading material? We've got you covered. These are the 15 best fiction books out in February, from acclaimed authors such as Amy Bloom and Jane Harper, as well as newcomers to the scene you're bound to love. The books on the list range in genre and style, so no matter what mood you're in or what type of novel you tend to enjoy, you're bound to find something here to obsess over this month. Happy reading!

This Is Us + Jack's Death
Get ready, everyone — on Sunday night we're all going to learn how Jack Pearson actually died. We already knew that it was gonna be a heartbreaker of an episode, but new details about This is Us' Super Bowl episode make it sound like it's gonna be a serious emotional roller coaster. Tissues will be needed.
OMG: You have to see what Emma Stone looks like with a perm.
Today's WTF Moment: Fear of balloons is a real phobia, and that's not even the weirdest thing you'll learn in that article.
