ITS MY BLOG BIRTHDAY!
I am so excited, discount I can barely handle it. Today is the second birthday for What A Nerd Girl Says.
I can’t believe that my blog, my baby, is two years old. I have worked so hard on it, and it really means the world to me. What started off as a place for me to defend my love for YA, and just YA in general, and a place for me to just be completely me has become so much more than that.
I’ve created a place where I can go to escape, and to talk about the things that I love completely. I’ve met so many amazing friends, friends that I can’t believe I ever wasn’t friends with. Major shoutout to Sylvia and Cassie, two people who I do so many fangirl things with, I can’t imagine doing them without you. We have SUCH adventures together. But I love ALL the friends I’ve made through this adventure like Mina and Janette and Alex and Stephanie and the rest. You guys ROCK.
I also love that I’ve been able to meet other amazing bloggers. They’ve become super inspirational to me, and helpful and I’ve loved getting to know all the fantastic bloggers out there. And if you’re thinking of blogging, you should do it :) Its fun, and if you’re passionate about it, you’ll love it. There’s a great community of bloggers out there, and I am so appreciative of it.
I am also grateful for the amount of authors and librarians and booksellers that its brought into my life. I’ve literally surrounded myself with people who are as obsessed with words as I am. I love having these people in my life and wrapping myself further into the book world. I feel like I’m constantly getting amazing advice on making my blog better, on becoming an even better author and figuring out what I’m going to do with my life. I think I’ll have the support that I need when its time.
Basically, it comes down to this: I’m such a lucky girl. I’m surrounded by amazing friends, inspiring people and I get to do some of the most amazing things. I’ve met so many authors that I can barely count how many and I have experienced so much. I can’t handle the life that I’ve been able to have because of my blog and what it has brought me. Yay for two years and here’s to many more being the Nerd Girl of What A Nerd Girl Says!

I would like to invite Ash or Puck from the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa!! Thanks for the giveaway!! :)
I would invite Helen from Starcrossed so she could take me flying!
Ooooo that is an extremely hard question! There are just so many!
Maybe Cammie from the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter… Because I bet she would have very interesting conversation.
I would invite Peter Pan because he seems like a lot of fun and my next birthday will be a Never Grow Up party because I’m turning 30 :) :( :/
If I could invite any fictional character to my Birthday it would probably have to be Nico di Angelo. He just seems so lonely and he needs a friend! Also we have that same kind of secluded dark side.
Augustus Waters or Ponyboy <3 perfect person for my birthday.
I’d invite Gandalf. He knows how to make some awesome fireworks:)
Cath…just because I would do anything to meet her and talk to her.
I would invite Hermione Granger or Tris, because they both were really easy for me to relate to and they seem like they will make great company.
Will Herondale because I want to marry him XD :*
I would invite Buffy Summers (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) because that show is my favorite and Buffy always had bad birthdays, so I would like her to have fun.
Id invite Alice Cullen to my birthday because she is so good at planning parties and so much fun. I’d probably get her to help plan/decorate/organise. She could pick me the PERFECT outfit, pick the perfect music and clean up would only take 5 minutes with her super speed. Practical and fun.
I’d invite Four because, hello, he’s Four. And also because he’d have Dauntless cake.
Shoot… Maybe Tessa from The Infernal Devices, to talk books and boys!
This giveaway is sweet!!! I would invite the Doctor (from Doctor who obviously! ;)) because he is the life of the party. Dancing with him would be the BEST! :)
I would invite Lucas Scott from tv show One Tree Hill. His love of books drew me to the show and I would love to chat with him about them.
Damen Auguste, it’s the mystery that draws you in.
Hmm… most probably Nightcrawler of the X-Men world so that he could invite all of his mutant friends and also because then he can teleport me wherever I wish to go!
I would invite Christian Ozera but then again he dislike parties so we would probably leave the party and go to a bookstore.
I would invite Alice Cullen because she is fun and so good at planning parties, id get her to help decorate and she could help find the perfect music and find me the perfect outfit. Plus clean up would be 5 minutes with her super speed, practical and fun.
Peeta! Because he’s hot and and he bakes too!
Well I think I’d invite legolas from LOTR because he’s handsome and lol yeah…..
I would invite Clary from the mortal instruments and train to be a Shadowhunter for the day!
I would love to invite Ethan Waite from Beautiful Creatures because he would be interesting to talk to.
Definitely Celaena Sardothein for the sole reason that she would get super competitive in all the party games :)
I’d invite Magnus!!! Um hello like king of all parties. He knows how to throw a good party ;)
I would totally invite Magnus Bane because he knows how to party!
I would invite Cath from Fangirl because I think we might would get along well. :)
I HIGHLY approve :D
Probably Ron Weasley because he’d be hillarious!
Definitely Will Herondale from Cassandra Clare’s The Infernal Devices series because he would fill up any awkward moments with his fab humor and he is just so fun and light-hearted but also deeply caring. He’d be the life of the party :”D
Will Herondale is ALWAYS a good choice
Tris or Tobias because they would bring dauntless cake
SUCH a good answer
I was going to say Jace Wayland but then we’d be in contest for who is prettiest and well we can’t be having that so hmmmm possibly Four and then I’d ask him to come with me whilst I get a tattoo and hold my hand :)
This legitimately made me laugh out loud
Definitely Will Herondale because he is just so fun and could fill up any awkward moments with his fab humor and although he can be the life of the party, he’s also a really deeply caring person so he’d know when anyone was uncomfortable or bored or anything really! Ahh I would love to be his friend :”D
I’d definitely invite Cath from Fangirl. I honestly think we’d be best friends, and we could just talk about fandoms, fanfiction, and all things related.
Or Jace Herondale, I think that he would keep me laughing with his constant sassy humor and jokes. I absolutely love Jace :)
Both fantastic choices, and two of my absolute favorite characters.
Harry potter <3
I forgot to mention Luna Lovegood. She was my favorite character throughout the series and us Ravenclaw girls have to stick together! I think we’d have quite odd conversations, but we’d keep each other laughing! :)
I would invite Tessa from tid, because she loves to read and Will too, because yeah, he’s a Herondale :) Oh, and Magnus because he’s fabulous. And a few YA heroines :)
Only one? Are you joking? Oh My Gosh. This is hard to choose. I would have to go with Albus Dumbledore. Beyond the fact that I love older people, the amount of wisdom in that conversation would be AMAZING. Plus, he could do some cool magic! Lol
The 11th Doctor/Matt Smith. Because we could talk nerd over tea and cake Anderson could make funny homemade videos and also because once he met me, he’d want to marry me ;) oh and the dancing he does as the Doctor! We’d sure be the Beyonce’s of the dancefloor!
I would bring Magnus because he is the life of the party and I know that everyone will have an awesome time if he were to be there.
I would have to say Jev/Patch from the Hush Hush Saga
Peeta from the Hunger Games because hello he is a baker boy, I would have the best darn birthday cake in the world. Ad nif I had a second choice it would be Jace Wayland from TMI because he is a party animal, nough said.
Definitely Adrian Ivashkov from the Vampire Academy and Bloodline series! He’s just so dreamy and perfect and I want him now!
I HIGHLY approve
I would invite Magnus Bane of course. He knows how to have fun, will bring hot guys with him, and the more glitter the better.
I would have to invite Edward Cullen of course what’s not to love about meeting your best vamp for your birthday… Oh and you can’t forget four you have to be trained dauntless
God, this question is too hard. Any fictional character? I would probably invite Will Herondale. He’s one of my favourite book characters (super hot and super witty :D)
I would invite Briar Rose because her story about she escaped Nazi Germany was so interesting.
I would invite percy jackson because he really brings the party and plus I usually have blue cupcakes so I’m sure he’d like that
I would invite Ginny, Fred and George Weasley as well as Uriah Pedrad, because they are all really entertaining people that I would love to meet in person!
Jace because he’s jace
I would probably invite Peeta because it would be cute dinner, he could probably talk about baking and that would be cool :)
Six from the Lorien Legacies series! Or, ROSE HATHAWAY!!!! I love them both <3
Adding another answer just for fun! :) I would also invite Hazel, Augustus, and Isaac to my birthday party because I’m having my first birthday party this year and it’s going to be at the June 5th advanced screening of TFIOS. :)
I’d invite Tod Hudson from Soul Screamers series. I’d love to pick the mind of this particular reaper. Love him! :D
I would invite Morpheus from Splintered :-)
I’d invite Celaena Sardothien from the Throne of Glass series, because she’s make it 100x better.
HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY! WOOT WOOT!
Oh man…the list could go on forever!
Tod Hudson, Noah Shaw, Etienne St. Clair, Cricket Bell, Perry, Gambit, the Cap, Loki, Iron Man and they can invite whoever they want. :)
Isabelle Lightwood would definitely be invited! She a female character that I really look up to. I love how she’s so badass and tough but there’s so much more to her when you get to know her. I’m not sure if we’d get along, but I would really want someone like her as a friend.
Magnus Bane because it wouldn’t be a party without him. And also because he throws the most amazing parties. :)
Hermione would be my guest!
Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Who doesn’t want to meet them and feel of being part of the Harry’s world for a little bit.
Happy 2nd Birthday!!! Many more and thank you for the giveaway!
Awesome! I would really like to win this!
This one’s difficult :d Maybe Akiva from Daughter of Smoke & Bone, because I wanna see him with my own eyes :D
Oh! I would invite Sturmhond from Siege and Storm! Having a birthday party on his ship would be a dream because FLYING ship haha that’s so cool plus he’s fabulous
This is SUCH a great choice
I would invite Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov and I know i’d be the third wheel but they’re so awesome I wouldn’t mind
I have been dying to read most of these. Hope I win so I can take them off my To be read list faster. :D I would Invite Peeta and Katniss from Hunger Games and omg Tessa Will and James from Infernal Devices. Some Interesting conversations there I am sure.
One ficitonal character? Sheesh. I would have to say Mystique from Marvel’s X-Men. See, there’s logic in my choice though. I’m a Marvel fan, yes … but Mystique can be ANYONE.
So I think I kinda just used my three wishes to wish for more wishes … right?
That is so brilliant. I applaud your cleverness ;)
I’m a complete wallflower. I look utterly stupid and awkward during parties so I’d probbably bring Sam and Patrick from The Perks with me, so they could pull me out of my non-existent social life. haha
I’ll invite the Harry Potter cast (before the epilogue but after Voldy’s defeat). :)
I’d rather have a magical feel of the party ;) BUTTERBEER for everyone! <3
If i could invite one fictional character to my birthday it would be Brian “master” Sinclair because he is so romantic, lead guitarist and composer, he love music as much i do and is a rockstar!
I’d invite Fred and George Weasley, because they’d be amusing and extremely fun people to have at a party
Day from Legend
I would choose the Herondale boys because they’re wonderful and I’m sure they know how to throw a great party (:
I would invite Dresden.. one heck of a Wizard ;)
Ill invite Prince Maxon of the Selection, well bc who else should be in a party? Maxon is the life of the party. Such a charmer, he is :)
I would invite Aaron Warner because he’s WARNER and why wouldn’t you?
I would invite Augustus Waters. :)
Cress in the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Maybe because she have lived her life in a satellite and have never been on a party before. So might as well invite her to the first party she’ll ever have :)
I honestly would choose Peeta and ask him to make dessert for us
I would choose Will Herondale because I would stare at him the whole time! :D
Patch Cipriano :)
Good question! Probably Finnick <3
Forgot to say why! Probably because he’s so charming :)
I would invite Kenji (of the Shatter Me series) because he’s hilarious!! :D
Hazel from the fault in our stars because I love her humor and our personalities match!
Finnick bc we could use some sugar cubes lol
Well I wouldn’t invite Four, as he’d probably only bring me four candles.
And I wouldn’t bring Gred and Forge, although they make good twitter handles
There is another I know who I could not bring, and that’s Jace
As he’s a party pooper at clubs, trying to kill the demon race
So of all the fictional people I met on my beloved book shelf
I think I would choose the firework making, party king Gandalf!
