“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 reading. It’s a magnificent journey of love and loss that I’ll remember for years to come.

What I absolutely loved. The characters. Not only the main characters, but the secondary characters are all so well developed. I feel as though I got to know them. I was interested and invested in their stories.

Cole and Poppy are stunning!

He’s pure male perfection and she’s one of the strongest female leads I’ve read. Both are very well written and fleshed out. They’re love story jumps off the page and completely consumed me. While I loved them both and Poppy certainly appealed to my emotions due to her loss, but Cole stole the show. He’s swoony PERFECTION!

The storyline, plot, and execution couldn’t have been more beautifully rendered. The pace is spot on. The emotional triggers well placed. But most of all the writing is fantastic.

You’ll hear no critique from me. I loved it! From the beautiful cover and story, to that amazing ending, it’s sheer perfection! If you love heart-wrenching love stories with feeling, you have to one-click The Birthday List. It’s UNPUTDOWNABLE!

Highly recommended.



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 more DNFs each month. Devney Perry has been someone I admired from the very first time I heard of her. Luckily I realized from the very beginning that she had talent, I just had to wait for the right book to wow me and knock me off my feet.

And The Birthday List was exactly that book. It spoke to me in its entirety. There was nothing in this book that I didn’t love.

From the premise of the story to the events that brought Poppy and Cole together – this book had it all. The plot was beautifully executed, from heartwarming dialogues to a cast that made me smile and chuckle. Poppy and Cole’s love simmered and grew with each chapter. They were a couple that worked in every sense of the word. iThey worked together to fulfill Jamie’s birthday list. They also worked on each other, by giving space and being patient, as well as letting go and moving forward when the time was right. iI fell in love with the characters because they took their time. I fell in love with the author because of the way she handled this sensitive time in Poppy’s life. lI fell in love with a book that made me happy instead of breaking me.

I fell in love with The Birthday List!!!!

The author did a marvelous job in bringing two people together that were just right for each other. It’s hard for me not to gush all day long about a story that touched me in a way that only a few manage to do. This comes from the bottom of my heart when I say, that this book was a LOVE STORY that should be on everyones reading list. I adored it.
