Birthday Bash - Storied Conversation


  1. I just finished reading “I’m Your Huckleberry” by Val Kilmer. A couple of weeks ago I saw “Val” on Amazon Prime Video and I was deeply affected by it. It was a stark contrast to see him young and beautiful in the 1980s and 1990s and to see him how he is today after struggling with throat cancer. I have recently dealt with health issues and have more than once thought I didn’t want to continue dealing with this everyday. But then I saw “Val” and I thought, “if Val can keep going, so can I”. So then I read his book and there are weird parts but a lot of sections of the book brought a smile to my face. He is a very creative person.

    Happy Birthday! I’m 45, too.

  2. I hope you are feeling better and have a very Happy Birthday! I haven’t had a whole lot of time to read lately.

  3. One of my favorite books is Kristin Hannah’s Winter Garden. I have read this book a few times and I could read it a few more and I would never tire of it.

  4. Happy Birthday to you have you have a great day. I would suggest the book Unwritten by Alicia J. Novo it is super good.

  5. I would suggest any of Tricia O’Malleys books! I really enjoyed her Wild Irish/The Mystic Cove series. Hope you have a fabulous birthday.

  6. Sometimes the best read can be a reread of your favorite book! That’s what I’d suggest. It’s like a visit with old friends!

  7. New York Times Custom Birthday Book I love giving this as a gift for birthdays with historical event that happened on your big day.

  8. Some good ones I’ve read recently are Where the Crawdads Sing and The Tattooist of Auschwitz. I’m reading The Underground Girls of Kabul right now. Its a good read too.

  9. Happy birthday!
    If you are looking to read something on the light side I would suggest Catherine Coulter FBI books.

  10. It’s definitely not a birthday book but one I just have to recommend because I absolutely loved it. It is HEAVY but sooo good. Being Mortal by Atul Gawande. PS: Happy birthday!!!!!! Oh and less heavy, I’ve reread the Bell Jar like every year since I was in high school, give it a go if you haven’t read it yet!

  11. Great giveaway!! I would suggest reading a touch of darkness by Scarlet St Claire. I really liked reading this book recently.

  12. Kristen Hannah and Jody Picoult are great authors. I heard my aunt say that her favorite book was Lonesome Dove. I had no idea what the book was about but I checked it out from the library. I normally give books 100 pages before I decide to keep reading or not waste my time. Lonesome Dove is around 1000 pages so I decided to give it 200 pages and it is a genre I usually do not care to read but so glad I did. I know you have tons on your plate but if you ever want something different it is a good book.

  13. I would recommend reading A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. It was the first book that I loved and that got me interested in reading. It will give you warm fuzzies.

  14. Hm, maybe a little poetry? I don’t read poetry often but when I do, I feel sentimental and inspired. I Hope This Helps
    by Nakeia Homer is lovely. A country singer, Kelsea Ballerini (love her songs), is coming out with one called Feel Your Way Through but it comes out in November…

  15. I really loved the Enders game series by R.A. Salvatore and I love Stephen King so I would recommend Thinner and Misery.

  16. Hi, many many more happy returns of the day! God bless you!

    My book.recommendation for you is sadhgurus – karma, jay shettys – think like a monk. These both are quintessential for knowing your existence, hope we get more & more wisdom as we grew older.

    P.S: That giveaway money from you, could be greatly useful for me as I’m a student, in remote area and not in an working position.

    Thank you! Have a great day!

  17. Happiest Birthday Ever! (I put in the Rita Reviews newsletter code word instead of the Wickedly Romance newsletter code word. I do have it.) I think you should read “The Things We Keep” by Sally Hepworth, “A Man Called Ove” by Fredrik Backman and “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” also by Fredrick Backman. I jus finished reading them.

  18. Happy Birthday!

    I have always enjoyed Jane Eyre. I like the classics and have tried rereading them at different ages. Try rereading a classic!

  19. Happy Birthday! I just finished reading A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay. It’s the perfect book to get into the mood for the spooky season!

  20. Jaymin Eve has some amazing series, it you don’t mind reverse harem then I suggest reading her curse of the gods….which is hands down the best series I have read of recent. Also, if you want something a bit tamer then I I suggest Huntress by Julie Hall, the main charcter is a stubborn but amazing hero even if she doesn’t know it. Found this book to be a page turner and not like some of the others I read, plus it has book two out so your not waiting in the dark for what happens next.
    I believe all of these suggestions are free on KU!

  21. I don’t have any book recommendtions because it’s been a long time since I’ve had time to sit down and read. But I still wanted to wish you a happy birthday!
