Happy Birthday Ryke!, you're probably thinking Ryke isn't really a happy person.  He's always brooding and he gives off that "angry" vibe.

But today is his special day!  In all of the Addicted series books, we have yet to witness the gang celebrate his birthday.  But there are 3 books remaining (*insert very sad, tearful face here*), so perhaps we'll get a chance to see his birthday celebrated.  As adventurous as Ryke is, I was really hoping to have something equally as adventurous for his birthday on this post.  Alas, I couldn't come up with anything, unless I challenge you all to do something you never ever thought you would do in your entire life; such as, skydiving or bungee jumping (for me) *wink wink*

Yeaaaah.  I'm sure my wink is this awkward

However, if you're a member of Krista & Becca's Fizzle Force on Facebook, we do have something fun happening there.  If you're feeling creative, we are challenging you to create a meme in honor of Ryke Meadows.  Of course, we would love to see memes for anything related to the series, but we would prefer that it's related to Ryke (or Daisy, or Raisy) since it's his birthday we're celebrating.

Now, if you're like me and don't really know what memes are, here are a couple of examples created by +Lanie

The lovely +Lanie (a.k.a. Mauve Fairy) from Musings of the Book-a-holic Fairies, Inc. created a video to celebrate Ryke's birthday! 

(You can watch all of +Lanie's magical creations HERE).

In case you didn't notice, she's also the mastermind behind the wonderful edits on this post.  I seriously don't know how she does it all!!

If you haven't stopped by Krista & Becca's blog, be sure to drop by there.  I know they're also celebrating Ryke's birthday today.
