Hey, did you guys know that today is very special? Because a certain Mooney girl was born twenty-some years ago, forever bringing her special brand of magic into the world. So on the count of three, please shout it with me. 1... 2... 3...


To celebrate, I thought I would gather up some cool fictional characters for a cool fictional surprise party. Here's who I invited:

Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)Sturmhond
from SIEGE AND STORM by Leigh Bardugo

This pirate captain -- sorry, he prefers privateer -- does tend to steal every scene he's in, but I'm pretty sure he wouldn't steal the party from the birthday girl. Instead, I expect that he would bring her the awesome-est gift ever. Some strange new invention of his own making. And after he unveiled it, he would charm the whole crowd, telling jokes and dancing.

from FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell

Sure, she isn't your typical party girl, but Cath knows how to have a good time. At least her own kind of "good time," which is one of the kinds that Stephanie likes too. They could sit on a sofa where the music isn't as loud, sipping fruity drinks and chatting about their favorite fandoms. Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Simon Snow. Maybe they'll even collaborate on a story together.

How to LoveShelby and Sawyer
from HOW TO LOVE by Katie Cotugno

Shelby is the kind of friend that everyone needs. She'll always tell you the truth, straight up, no holds barred -- but she also won't hold anything against you. Not even when you're being shitty about it. She's funny and smart and loyal -- and as both a doctor and a long-time waitress, she's probably pretty handy to have around at a party.

(Sawyer's a nice enough guy, now that he's cleaned himself up, but mostly he's here to mix drinks. And to bring adorable little Hannah along, because what party isn't better with cute babies?)

Last but not least, I would invite YOU GUYS! Because you all seem like loads of fun. And book people are our people. :)

Since we operate on a "the more, the merrier" policy here at We Heart YA, you're all allowed to bring guests, too. I think Sturmhond would bring Alina, Cath can barely stand to be separated from Levi, and Shelby would want to come alone so she could check out all the single ladies. Who would you bring to Steph's party?

Magnus Bane
from The Mortal Instrument Series

He's one dude who knows how to throw a party. If he's not serving up magical concoctions, he's making pastries and beverages appear out of thin air. Plus, he sparkles!!

Happy Birthday, Stephanie!

I would bring Zuzana from A Daughter of Smoke and Bone- something tells me she'd be really fun at a party! (And if she brings Mik there will be musical entertainment!)

Sara at The Page Sage

Ashley @ Book Labyrinth said...

Happy Birthday!!

I'll invite Adam from If I Stay/Where She Went to be the musical entertainment, and heck, Mia will probably join in.

Happy belated birthday, Stephanie! I love all the guests, and I would add Anna and Etienne, who would make for excellent conversation, and also Lola and Cricket, who would look fab and bring something stylish and cool as a gift.
