Today is my 13th birthday! WOO!
Now that I am 5’9″ it’s hard to believe I was this small once –
The stocking was my baby blanket in the hospital. Now I use it as my Christmas stocking. :)
At 13 years, sadly I am no longer a tween, but am I YA? My birthday party is going on over at Beth Stilborn’s blog. She is asking people to recommend early YA books for me to read now that I am officially not a tween anymore. Click HERE to join the party!
I am excited to read some of the suggestions that are over there already but I think I will always love reading middle grade books… and picture books… and magazine articles… and newspapers… cards at the grocery store… ingredients on cereal boxes… Okay, I’ll pretty much read anything and I find good things in almost everything I read.
I also did an end of year round-up over at Jennifer Alvarez’s blog of some of the books I read this year that really stuck with me. Click HERE to go THERE!
Now that I am 13, I was wondering, should I be This Teen Reviews Books not This Kid Reviews Books? I think I can still be Kid for a while longer (although my parents did reserve http://www.ThisTeenReviewsBooks.com for me). :) What do you think?
The biggest birthday present anyone can give me is more stories, more blog posts, more plot lines, more adventure, more information, MORE TO READ (actually the best present I could get would be an eighth day to the week that is just for reading, but I don’t think that is going to happen). All the writers and bloggers out there who give me the great opportunity to read what you create is the best present of all. I am proud to say I am a reading geek and if YOU keep writing, I will keep reading!
