My birthday was on June 1st and I received so many lovely, and thoughtful gifts! I wanted to share with you all the books and bookish things I was given!
- The Hufflepuff 20th edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone– Ahhh it looks so amazing in person! I think the Hufflepuff edition looks that best and that makes me proud! **I have since unhauled this book and will no longer speak about Harry Potter on this blog**
- Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel (Themis Files #2)– I just finished and reviewed the first book, Sleeping Giants, and absolutely loved it!
- The Girls by Emma Cline– I have been wanting to read this for a while now! There was a time when everyone was talking about it and I want to know what the hype is all about!
- Mansfield Park by Jane Austen (Word Cloud Classics Edition)– I do not own and have never read Mansfield Park- which is crazy because I love Jane Austen! Such a gorgeous edition!
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee– This is one of my favourite books and my parents bought me an absolutely gorgeous edition!
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (Vintage Classics Edition)– This is another one of my favourites, and shamefully the only edition I had was the movie-tie in cover! This one is gorgeous, especially in person!
My parents gave me the most amazing piece of art. This is a painting of Marilyn Monroe that is done on pages from books published in the early 1900s. Is there a more thoughtful gift than that? They know me so well! The artist is Neil Turner and here is a link to his website! ***There are some nsfw paintings but I love a lot of his stuff and it is pretty affordable!*** I love having original artwork.
I had such a wonderful birthday and I am so grateful to all of you who reached out to wish me a happy birthday! I have only been blogging for a week but I already feel like I am part of the community and that is amazing! Thank you everyone!

Happy Belated Birthday!🎉🎈🎁🎂 That’s quite the haul! I just ordered my Ravenclaw edition.😊
Fantastic haul! I still need to pick up Waking Gods. The first book was so good!!!
Reading right now! Just started but I think it’s going to be just as good!

Happy belated birthday!! *throws confetti*
You received so many gorgeous editions! I especially love The Great Gatsby one <3
Thank you so much! It is stunning! I have it displayed proudly on the shelves!
Wow. What a great haul! And happy belated birthday! ❤
Thank you so much! 😊
Wait. Hufflepuff Edition? Are there editions for ALL the houses?
Glad you had a great birthday!
Yes there are! And there are paperback and hardback editions. They are amazing!
I did! Thank you 😊
Can’t believe I didn’t know about this. Such a great idea. So many people I could buy these for. Maybe no one will find out until Christmas…
They would make great Christmas gifts 😋
Happy belated birthday!! I have that edition of To Kill a Mockingbird as well; it’s beautiful! I hope you enjoy all your books!!
Thank you! 😊 It really is a pretty edition!
Another birthday book haul! Yay, happy belated birthday Kristin! (It’s fun to read book haul posts, and I can’t really explain why. Erm okay I sound a little weird. Honestly probably because when I get books in the mail or stop by the bookstore my day is OFFICIALLY made. 😂) Also, that art is amazing!! Normal teenagers on their birthday: “A giftcard for Brandy or Abercrombie & Fitch please?!!” Me: *praying my parents bought me books.* What?! I’m running dangerously low on Barnes and Noble gift cards right now okay?!
Thanks Sarah! I love hauls too. Around Christmas I love watching videos and readings posts about what everyone got. Just so fun!
Happy Belated Birthday! 😄💜🎉😄💜🎉

Hi. Thanks for your post. I really love Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and i recommend everyone read it. I’ve just finished reading http://www.goreadabook.org/book/1037193578/harry-potter-and-the-sorcerers-stone-enhanced-edition and i’m in love with this book genre. However i love all book generes. Doesn’t matter if it’s romance or novelties. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is a great book. Definitely one of my favorites. Thanks
I am so excited to read the Harry Potter illustrated editions! I do not know why I haven’t yet!
