Birthday books!!

Hello everybody!!

Happy Friday!!

And happy birthday to me!!


This naturally segues (for me anyway!) into a discussion of book character birthdays. What birthdays do you remember-what were particularly memorable ones?

I remember Ramona's. And a birthday where a kid got a pony. (as a horse mad young girl I was in love with this book, heh). But why are all others escaping me?

When I was a kid, it seemed like I could begin again on my birthday. With my new cool (insert present here) I would save the world.

Have all those books gone? Is there a particular character's birthday that you remember?


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEN!! Why didn't you tell?? I gave you a Harry Potter birthday cake! ;)

    Hope you have a great birthday! :)

  2. Happy Birthday. I'm reading You Wish by Mandy Hubbard. It is a book about a girl who makes a wish for her birthday wishes to come true on her sixteenth birthday. It is pretty funny when her childhood birthday wishes start coming true.

  3. Have an auspiciously happy birthday! I'm completely blanking out on book birthdays right now, maybe because they're overrated, but I'll always remember Harry Potter's just because of Trelawney:
    "I think I'm right in saying your birthday is in the middle of winter?"
    "No, actually, the end of June."

    :D :D :D

  4. Happy birthday, Jen!!

    I want that Harry Potter cake :)

  5. This is probably not the sort of book you are thinking about, but I love HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BAD KITTY. Actually, I love all the BAD KITTY books. There are a bunch of American Girl books about the different historical characters' birthdays. I liked reading these to my daughter so she could hopefully see exactly how fortunate she is living now instead of back when kids were thrilled to get a pair of shoes for their birthday.

  6. Happy Belated Birthday! I hope it was wonderful.


Thanks for adding to the mayhem!
