Hey party people!😂🎉

Guess what?! Nah, you don’t have to guess- it’s right in the title. It’s my second blogiversary! It seems like just yesterday when I posted my first blogiversary Q & A post and made my blog. Anyway, I’m not going to ramble, but just know that I am extremely thankful for all of you who have contributed to my amazing blogging experience! I am hoping that this blog will take me even farther in the years to come❤️❤️

In light of my blogiversary, today I will be sharing the Epic Birthday Blog Tag (even though my actual birthday isn’t until June 29th)! Thank you to the lovely Sam @ River-Moose-Reads for tagging me, and be sure to check out her wonderful blog!❤️

So let’s get the party started, shall we? *cues music*

  2. Post this on your birthday (or blogiversary like I’m doing)!!! Or not, y’know, you do you. 😄
  3. Answer the questions! (You might have to do some digging, hope that’s not a problem.)
  4. Tag as many bloggers as you can! (At least 1+ so the tag won’t die!)

Les Questions:

WHEN’S YOUR BIRTHDAY (MONTH + DAY)?

Mine is June 29th, and my blog’s is April 10th.🎉


WHAT’S YOUR ZODIAC SIGN?

I’m a Cancer– and no one can convince me otherwise!🦀♋️

My blog is an Aries!♈️ Meaning, it’s intelligent (sure), sarcastic (haha, no), romantic (well, it talks about a lot of romance books?), and rebellious (oh boy).


WHAT’S YOUR BIRTHSTONE?

Here are mine:

Here is my blog’s:


DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH THE SAME BIRTHDAY?

Yep, I have met a few people sharing the same birthday as me! It’s so awesome to meet my birthday twins, especially if they were born during the same year as me.

For my blog, I feel like I have met people with April 10th birthdays as well, but I can’t recall who right now.🙈

WHAT DO YOU USUALLY DO TO CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY?

It differs from year to year, but I usually have a party of some sort with my friends and go out for dinner with my family.


WERE YOU BORN IN THE MORNING, AFTERNOON, OR THE NIGHT?

Both my blog and I are afternoon babies.☀️


IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY PRESENT IN THE WORLD, WHAT PRESENT WOULD IT BE?

I have too many ambitious present ideas in mind (such as a massive swimming pool in my smallish backyard- too extra?), so I’ll just list a few books:

  • Save the Date by Morgan Matson (I need that yesterday😩)
  • A Thousand Perfect Notes by the legendary Cait @ Paper Fury (WHYYY is it only being published in the UK and Australia?!!😭)
  • Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett
  • Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli

Or better than any books (sorry😕), maybe a trip all around the world? Maybe I’m pushing it a little?


WHAT’S YOUR EARLIEST BIRTHDAY MEMORY?

One of my earliest birthday memories (my 3rd birthday, I think) is having a party at a farm and I was the only one who didn’t want to ride a horse. Ahh, I was a strange child.😂😂


HOW DID YOU GET YOUR NAME?

I think I remember my mom telling me once that part of why she named me Kayla was because when she was pregnant with me, whenever I kicked her stomach (which was apparently not very often), she would say ‘okay’- a story among those lines. My parents also really liked the name and didn’t know anyone growing up with it, and I was also named after my late grandfather who died a few days after I was born.


HAVE YOU EVER FORGOTTEN YOUR BIRTHDAY?

Nope! I’m always in the mood for it when it rolls around.🙂🎉


BOOK FLASH: 5 BOOKS YOU’D WANT TO BE GIVEN ON YOUR SPECIAL DAY!

Let me redirect you to the question of what presents I would want! Anyway, I guess one extra book I’d want would be Someday by David Levithan!


LASTLY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLOGIVERSARY! TREAT YOURSELF TO A GIF!


Once again, thank you all so much for supporting me and my blog over these past two years! I am so excited for the future that is in store for this blog! I love you all so much!!❤️❤️

Au revoir!💜

Love, Kayla💘
