    4.25 stars!!! The Birthday List is an emotional, moving, and romantic stand-alone novel. I was drawn in to Poppy's story straight away and I loved it from start to finish! Poppy Maysen has been alive the last five years, but she hasn't been living. Not really. She's still grieving the loss of her husband, Jaime, who died suddenly and tragically five years ago. Things have been hard for her, but she's trying to move forward. Things are starting t...

    *****4.5 STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}My heart had been in pieces since the night Jamie had been killed. It had taken every day of the last five years for the pain in my chest to fade to a dull ache. Still, it was there. And after every one of my interactions with Cole, that ache flared. Because when I was with Cole, I wasn’t remembering Jamie. Cole made me forget the pain.”THE BIRTHDAY LIST” is my first read by the amazing ...

    ★ 4 “minute by minute” stars!!! ★   “I’ll take whatever you’ll give me.” Esse é o primeiro livro que leio da autora e estou encantada pela escrita dela! Eu gostei bastante dessa história, dos personagens, o ritmo e como tudo foi acontecendo no “tempo” certo, sem pressa e sem afobação. “Crying doesn’t make you weak, Poppy. Sometimes, it takes more strength to let go than it does to keep it all inside.” Gostei muito ...

    What a beautiful story! I'm gonna be one of the first ones to say that having a deceased spouse as a major part in a book rarely works for me, however what Devney Perry did here was just beautiful. The way she wrote how Cole helping Poppy on the journey to letting Jamie go was stunning. I've never read a more perfect way to introduce a new love into someone's life who wasn't ready to let go of the last love.Poppy has been mourning Jamie for 5 yea...

    Oh my gawd!!! This book! This absolutely beautiful, heartfelt book! There are really no words to describe how amazing it is or how it made me feel as I moved through the story. I am not a writer but it is at times like this that I wish I had the talent to express how incredible a story is and how it touched my heart and my soul.After the death of her husband, Jamie, Poppy is struggling to find some closure even as she lives with the heavy weight ...

    Moving with the curves…I started this review thinking 4 stars, but getting all these feelings down, it's a bloody 5 all the way.When I was younger, I swore to my hubby that he would be my one and only. For me, at the time, I felt like there was no chance that I could move on if something happened to him. Sorry hubby, but I think I’ve changed my mind. Don’t get me wrong, I would be devastated, my heart would break, and life wouldn’t be wor...

    The Birthday List by Devney Perry was the ULTIMATE love story. I was consumed by it. Entirely invested in this absolutely gorgeous story from beginning to end. It was PERFECTION!!! Beautifully composed, masterfully written, a heartwarming, sweet, and swoony story that is by far the BEST work that the author has written so far!I'm incredibly picky. It's a curse, and unfortunately limits my reading experience to a few amazing books a year, and many...

    “The rest is still unwritten…” OMG… I fell in love with this story and I fell hard. I loved everything about it, from the all-consuming love story, to the heart-wrenching emotions that this story evoked, to the flawless storytelling and the unbelievable characters that brought The Birthday List to life. It doesn’t happen very often when an author and her stories live up to the hype. I had heard amazing things about Devney Perry’s Ja...

    3.5 starsVery touching and poignant love story. I expected to love it more. I still clicked 4 stars, but I wish there were less issues, that bothered me.No time and desire to write a long review. I limit my complains to 2 points:- they dismissed H's ex-gf too fast. They didn't really bash her, but I felt sorry for her. Big fat minus for the hero.- sub-story with h's brother and his ex-wife. Ugh! Poor woman, they put her in bad light, made her a c...

    5 “Minute by Minute” Stars “This man took me breath away” That quote pretty much sums up this book for me. Cole is an amazing character and he now owns a little piece of my heart. I loved every single little thing about Cole and Poppy’s story. Devney Perry has cemented her place as a force to be reckoned with. The Birthday List is thoughtful and thought-provoking. I felt all the feels and experienced the full array of emotions while rea...

    This was a fantastically written story that will stay with me forever. There were so many emotions for me while reading this. There were parts that made me cry and my heart just hurt so much for Poppy but then there were moments when I was laughing so hard (ex. paint fight) that I had to take a little break. I loved the writing, loved the characters, and loved the story. This is a top pick of 2018 for me and a book I look forward to going back an...

    ➳ Rate: +5 / 5 starsI have only read one other book of Devney before this one and it was the first book in the Jamison Valley series. I fell in love with her writing then and I can't wait to get back to that series when I have time. And now having read this book, my love for her words has cemented. I know, already, that she will be one of my favorite author finds of 2018.I love the way she writes. How she makes the plot so interesting; they pul...

    Change someone’s life... Gah! Why again I haven't read any of Devney Perry's works? Shame on me because what I just finished reading, was all sorts of AHMAZING! I seriously can't say enough how I freaking like this book. Start to finish, I was drawn to this emotional, heartbreaking yet heart warming journey I have the pleasure of reading. It might be my first Devney's book, but I assure you, it wont be my last. Her words are like magnet as I wa...

    Poppy Maysen's life changed in an instant and all that she was left with from her loving husband was a birthday list...a sort of bucket list to be completed by certain birthdays. Five years later she is tackling that list herself in his memory. She has survived and is now owner of a kitschy restaurant. She is smart, sweet, and caring. But she is closed off and not over her loss, and the list is one way she hopes to be able to finally move on.Dete...

    “I’ll take whatever you’ll give me.” Nobody gets my heart pumping faster or my soul flying higher quite like Devney Perry’s words. I remember when the news about this upcoming release broke and I had the biggest smile on my face the entire day. I was incredibly intrigued by the storyline, captivated by the book cover, and completely enamored by the author’s name on said cover. I don’t think it’s possible to read a synopsis like an...

    If I had to use one word to describe THE BIRTHDAY LIST by Devney Perry and its meaning to me, it would be serendipity. Serendipity by definition is the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way. The Birthday List is a STUNNING love story that strikes the heart and soul, an emotional journey of strength and second chances that shines with the sweetest SERENDIPITY.I didn’t read but a few pages of this story when ...
