Hello, my darling readers!
I am currently catching up with all the gorgeous books I received via subscription boxes. If I remember correctly, Birthday came in the Illumicrate June box. Let’s see what it is about, shall we?
The Plot (as found on Goodreads):
Meet Eric and Morgan.
Born on the same day, at the same time, in the same place. They’ve always shared this one day together, but as they grow up they begin to grow apart.
Everyone expects Eric to get a football scholarship, but no one knows he’s having second thoughts.
Former quarterback Morgan feels utterly alone, as she wrestles with the difficult choice to live as her true self.
Both of them are struggling to be the person they know they are. Who better to help than your best friend?
Told on one day every year, over six years, this is a story about how change pulls people apart… and how love brings them back together.
I finished this book within two days. Although you get an inkling of where this is going pretty quickly, you can’t put it down until you know whether your suspicions are correct.
Birthday is the kind of book that makes you feel all the feels. It’s funny at times, heartbreaking at others.
This is the second part of the “Me from A to Z” series! You can check out part 1 right here.
I hope you enjoy it and I’d love for some of my fellow bloggers to pick up the idea 😉

I – Inside Jokes: I’m pretty sure whoever has to listen to me and my friends must think that we are all nuts. Sometimes our conversations exist almost exclusively of inside jokes. As ridiculous as it is, I love it. The jokes may be totally stupid, but never fail to make me smile.
J – June: I couldn’t think of anything cool or interesting for the letter J, so I chose June, the month I was born in. I always liked it, almost summer but not yet too hot. During university my excitement over June has been ebbing. It’s when all the exams for the summer semester take place meaning that it’s nothing but stress and I hardly ever get to leave the house. Plus it usually means that I can’t spend my birthday at home nor celebrate it at all. With an exam coming up the next day you’re not in the mood for a party.
K – Kitchen: My favourite room! I love to cook and to bake so the kitchen is the place to be for me. Whenever I’m at a home center I glance longingly at all those amazing kitchens with all the appliances a cook could ever dream of. Continue reading
