First off, that photo is a cake. Seriously. I'd almost feel guilty eating it. Almost.

My birthday is coming up and my parents are asking for a birthday list. Said list will consist of books. Fragile Eternity is already on there but I'd like some suggestions from all you writers. (Cuz if you're a writer it means you read a lot.)

I like YA as long as it's that generation Y YA that appeals to us 20 year olds. Oh wait, this birthday will make me 30. I don't care, I'm still gonna read YA. Nobody can stop me! :)~

I'm a sucker for a great love story, or books with magical elements, and I always love to fictitiously fall in love with some new hunk. Books that make me cry--whether because of beauty, love, or sadness--are also good.

So any suggestions?


  1. I've stopped over here from The Literary Lab. You have a great site here, and you market your writing and your book well. I'm hooked already! I look forward to learning more about you.

  2. Oh, and that cake is AMAZING! In my book my MC is a cake maker. That's something she would make. :D

  3. Happy Birthday!
    I wish I had some amazing book suggestions for you, but have not read anything new recently. I've been re-reading the Harry Potter series on my Kindle.
    My goal is actually to get to BN this weekend (I've got a nice $25 gift card burning a hole in my pocket). I'll let you know if I find anything good!

  4. Well, I don't know if this is too young or not, but "Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" is a fun read.

  5. Karen,
    Wish you A hVery Happy Birthday. May this coming birthday bring you lots of joys, peace, happiness and everything you dream of.

    For those books I recommended, kindly follow the link below :-

    Hope you find the above list useful.

    Cheers and have a lovely weekend

  6. hi karen. happy bday! 30 is not so bad... it's and end, true, but also a start.

    funny too... pretty much the whole TO gang has birthdays in the spring. guess there is something to astrology. ha.

    i read many magazines - i love the fresh stories. your comments about romance coincide with this month's Walrus (canadian lit mag) - they profile Harlequin - good story - find it on their site.

    keep writing!

  7. Hmm, books I recommend to people all the time: First, "The Hunger Games," by Suzanne Collins. This has become maybe my favorite book ever. Great writing, powerful, and at times, terrifying. Also, "Thirteen Reasons Why," by Jay Asher is a fantastic book. And third, I finally got around to reading "Holes," by Louis Sachar, and if you haven't read that, it's definitely worth the read!
