***a beautiful cake photo used to be in this post but due to the recent lawsuits for using photos on blogs I took it down.***First off, that photo is a cake. Seriously. I'd almost feel guilty eating it. Almost.
Secondly, my birthday is rapidly approaching and that means it's time to make my birthday list. Said list will consist of novels because really, nothing beats receiving a great book as a gift.
Okay, SOME gifts top a book. Like if you wanted to send me on an all expenses paid vacation (FYI I love cruises) I wouldn't complain. Although for the record, it would be extra thoughtful if you gave me the vacation AND a couple books to read while I'm on the plane, sunbathing, etc.
Anyway, let's have a virtual book birthday party!
*throws confetti and a hundred Happy Birthday balloons appear*
If it's nowhere near your actual birthday, have no fear. You can celebrate a very merry UNbirthday!
Andbutso, if you're attending the virtual birthday bash you must bring a book or two, or three, or four to give as gifts. Something you've read recently that you loved or would recommend, or an upcoming title that you KNOW will be fabulous.
Here are my contributions:
WILL GRAYSON, WILL GRAYSON
by John Green and David Levithan
(cracked me up and I wished I was friends with the characters. Not to mention it's the first time I ever saw "Andbutso" and I thought it was brilliant.)
THE BODY FINDER by Kimberly Derting
(read it in two sittings because it was a bona fide page turner. And of course, the great romantic relationship only added to its greatness.)
Now, I'm bringing these next books to the party but NO FIGHTING. There will be games such as Pin The Tale on the Donkey, and Twister to decide who gets these hot commodities.
THE CLOCKWORK ANGEL by Cassandra Clare
MOCKINGJAY by Suzanne Collins
*throws elbows* I SAID NO FIGHTING!
Okay, your turn! What books are you bringing? And what's your favorite kind of cake and drink so I know what to stock up on?
