It's my 20th birthday today. 
I woke up to flowers and a fancy box of chocolate from my parents! 
My 'big' gift was a trip to Ikea earlier this month!

I know I usually do a post about how I feel so old,
or some crazy ramblings and I probably still will this week!
I've been thinking way too much about age this week, 
but the world didn't end when today hit so I'm okay!
Regular posting will resume next week!

I hope you're all having a beautiful weekend! 


  1. Oh shug...20? You're a youngin'. I'm 37 this August.

    Happpy Birthday!!!!!! Flowers and chocolate are a fantastic thing to wake up to.

    Did you do anything special?

    Oh and btw so envious of I'll Follow the Moon.

    1. Aw thanks Juju! <3
      I went to Olive Garden and shopping with my mom!
      It looks so good, I can't wait to read it :)
      Thank you!

  2. Happy Birthday. :D 20 is a weird change in age cause you have the 2 in front of everything now. It was weird for me but now I am used to it (now being 3 years later...)

    I haven't read any of the books but I have The Catastrophic History of You and Me for the longest time and can't wait to read Hysteria, it seems creepy and unique. Enjoy! :)

    My Haul

    1. Aw thank you! Yeah, it really is! :)
      Totally agree, those are two perfect words to describe how Hysteria sounds!
      Thanks! :)

  3. Happy birthday! I hope you enjoy your day and your reads.

  4. Awesome haul, Katie :)

    I don't understand this fear of aging that people have, but maybe its just me. Older for me is a step closer to where I want to be; closer to a family, no more college, a job that I want, the ability to do anything (not that I will do it; just that I can ;)

    Great post!

    1. Thanks Ryan! :)
      I need to try and think of it in that way, I just think of all the things that I *have* to do instead of looking it as an *opportunity* to do new things.

  5. Happy birthday Katie!

    I keep meaning to read The Catastrophic History of You and Me but I never seem to get around to it :/ I've only read one book by Meg Rosoff, and that was How I Live Now. I thought it was... strange, but good. I'm definitely willing to give more of her books a try, so I can't wait to see what you think of There Is No Dog.

    Happy reading :)

    1. Thank you Chloe!
      I haven't read How I Live Now so this will be my first Meg Rosoff book, I definitely am excited! :)
      Thank you!

  6. Happy Birthday!!! YAY for flowers and chocolate. I think that This Journal Belongs to Ratchet looks really cute. Hope you love all you stuff you got this week. Happy Reading!

    1. Thank you Britt! :) Doesn't it?! It's a Middle Grade and it looks adorable! Thanks!

  7. Happy Birthday, Katie!!! 20 years old is young though! Hope you had fun celebrating! Those chocolates look delish.

    And this seems like a GREAT haul! I've heard some pretty amazing things about The Catastrophic History of You and Me so I really hope you end up loving it too!! Have a great week, Katie!

    1. Aw thank you Aylee! I still haven't eaten them, they're just too pretty... I think that'll change soon though lol!

      Thanks Aylee! :)

  8. great books, I'm really looking forward to reading Hysteria.
    Also, Happy Birthday for yesterday! :)

    1. Doesn't it look so good?! Hope you enjoy it!
