IT’S MY BIRTHDAY: Birthday Book Tag

It’s my birthday.

I hit 26 this year.

I feel less like a baby, which is nice.

I also have PLANS WITH FRIENDS. 2019 is looking up.


Count your birth date along your bookshelf. Then subtract your birth month and go back the same number of books.

I have two different bookshelves on opposite sides of the room, so I’ll do this for each shelf.

Fluff bookshelf: Time and Again by Jack Finney

I bought this for $2 at the college bookstore years ago.

Supposedly, this runaway bestseller demanded multiple reprints.

How did I miss that it was illustrated? I have to read this sometime this year.


Serious bookshelf: Renegades by Marissa Meyer

I STILL haven’t started this series…and I call myself a Marissa Meyer fan!

Book 3 comes out soon! WHAT AM I DOING?


If you could spend your birthday with any fictional character, who would it be and why?

Currently googling “best dogs in literature.”

I really miss my dog.

I’d like to share my birthday with a furry bud.

I just had two BRILLIANT ideas: call up Pinkerton the Great Dane or invite Winn-Dixie.

Or maybe Mudge? I love big dogs.

This is tough.

I want ALL the dogs at my party!


Find a book that takes place in the season you were born in.

Winter triggers Shiver’s main conflict: Sam and his pack involuntarily turn into wolves when temperatures drop.

My high school best friend loved this book.

She sat rereading the last page over and over during AP Statistics, murmuring, “Just one more time…”

I don’t care for this book, but I liked the cover and I miss her.


If you could have a cake inspired by a book, which book would it be?

Did I like Bittersweet? Not really.

Do I love the cover art? Of COURSE.

Cupcake Royale puts out wintry blue cupcakes with snowflake sprinkles that I look forward to every January.

Receiving an entire cake in the style of Bittersweet would thrill me to no end.


Name a well-loved book you either read on your birthday or received for your birthday.

I received Jesus Feminist and Jane Unlimited for my 24th and 25th birthdays respectively.

While it’s too soon to call these “well-loved,” LOOK WHAT I GOT FOR MY BIRTHDAY THIS YEAR:

Happy birthday to me!

For once, I’m in a good mood!

I feel HOPEFUL even!

Here’s to guzzling coffee and eating cake!

    1. Thank you! I had a lovely day (with donuts!) SERIOUSLY, I can’t believe I keep forgetting about “Renegades.” Marissa Meyer will have finished the series by the time I get to it.
