When we were asked to review this book, we freaked out! Honestly, I have never seen the girls so excited to receive a book in the mail before! They were dancing around the house as if they’d eaten a dozen cupcakes each! We are huge PEANUT BUTTER AND CUPCAKE fans! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CUPCAKE! was another hit! These books are MUST HAVES for anyone with children!

What’s a cupcake to do when she needs to plan her birthday party? In this hilarious, kid-friendly homage to food and birthdays, Cupcake runs through tons of ideas while her best friend, Blueberry Muffin, finds reasons why they won’t work: Soup gets seasick; Donut melts in the sun; someome might get squashed during musical chairs; and Cupcake is not very good at limbo (her icing might get sliced off!). Just as Cupcake is ready to crumble, Blueberry Muffin has one last idea that just might save the day.
With laugh-out-loud visual gags (like a band made up of beans–the musical fruit, of course), this book is sure to put a birthday smile on any kid’s face (and on adult faces as well).
According to the Baby Bettys upon finishing the book:
“I hope my party will be as cool as Cupcake’s!”
“But the food in our kitchen doesn’t talk!”
Do you know what today is??

I am obsessed with this series and was honestly heartbroken when it came to an end with The Queen of Zombie Hearts. I mean, seriously…. no more Cole Holland?? NO. MORE. COLE. HOLLAND????

SYNOPSIS: (According to my husband, who has NOT read the book — see how well he listens to my bookish ramblings)
This girl dresses like a weirdo all the time. Like really weird. I’m talking crazy wigs, big shoes, the works. There is also a kid named Cricket. Who names their kid after a bug? Anyway, he lives next door to her. He is geek chic. They have a fallout so she dates a hot band dude instead. But as the saying goes… If you love someone set them free, yada yada yada. I’m sure you’ll love it!
I have read so many amazing books this year, which made it hard to choose my favorites! But, as we all know… lots of books are great, but only some books are the best of the best! Each of the books on this list are incredibly special for many different reasons. I couldn’t knock it down to 10, so went with 12. I hope you’ll read them! No.. YOU HAVE TO READ THEM. No, no. OWN THEM. YOU NEED TO OWN THESE!
In no particular order…
