If we were having cake.

Today is my 27th birthday and in honor of my birthday, I thought that I would do a twist on the meme “if we were having coffee,” and change it to “if we were having cake.” I saw one of my book blog friends do this a little while ago and absolutely loved the idea. To keep it with the bookish theme, check out the amazing bookish cakes/cupcakes I found online. Who wouldn’t wanna nom on those bad boys?

I would bring you to one of my favorite local bakery/coffee shops There are a couple of ones where I live that make deliciously glorious baked goods (especially cupcakes and cakes). We would choose something that looked absolutely scrumptious, order a cup of coffee or tea and sit there for hours. I would probably pick up one of Oswego Tea Company’s tempting looking black forest cake cupcakes. We could catch up and or get to know one another a little better. I would ask you about yourself and what you are interested in, your passions, and new things that you are thinking of exploring this coming summer

I would probably chit chat with you about books. Ones you love and ones that you just couldn’t force yourself to finish. Ones that you think I need to move to the top of my TBR list and ones that I just can’t get enough of. We would talk about how I am hard-core fangirling over The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer and Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, and how I am really struggling to finish We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler. I would probably ask you what I should do about not finishing this book that came so highly recommended to me, which I like, but that really isn’t my cup of tea.

I would tell you how absolutely crazy life is right now. Between trying to finish another draft of my novel, trying to get back into blogging after a rather off month, working on crochet projects for an upcoming craft show getting ready for my boyfriend’s college graduation party, and other summer celebrations I don’t know if I have much time to breathe. But I will also tell you that I am super excited for all of these things and that I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I would tell you all about how I planned on finishing my second draft of my novel last month in Camp NaNoWriMo, but that didn’t even come close to happening. Sometimes life gets in the way and sometimes writer’s block sucks. However, I did write about 12k words all in new chapters and scenes. I would also let you know that I plan on giving Camp NaNoWriMo another shot again in July and this time, working on a story that has been kicking around in my brain for years now. Confessions of an Ice Cream girl promises to be a funny contemporary novel (hopefully). Summer is the perfect time for me to write one of those 🙂

    Your Harry Potter cakes make me smile. If we were having cake, I’d talk to you about books and how I’d love to read ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone.’ We’d talk about how hard it is to find time to write when you want to read with every spare minute you have and how having a story inside you is killer sometimes. Also, I think it would have to be carrot cake, because that’s my favorite.

        I take a weekend trip to Syracuse every summer for a family reunion, but other than that I don’t get out East much unfortunately. Do you ever make it to the Midwest? haha
        Now I really want cake. Yes, carrot cake. In my head, we’re having that cake and books date in about thirty minutes (because that’s how long my stomach can hold out). Get ready for a sugar rush and a literary explosion.
