Hey everyone! So, Sunday 17th February was my birthday! I’ve reached the grand old age of 23 and had a lovely weekend celebrating (aka I ate A LOT of food!).

As you may or may not know, this year I put myself on a book buying ban with one exception: my birthday. The main focus of today’s blog is a little project I like to call my Charity Birthday Book Haul.
