toptentuesdayNovember 14: Top Five Books I Want My Niece and Nephews to Read 

1.  The Wonderful Pigs of Jillian Jiggs  Something I remember reading as a kid and even making some of the puppet pigs. It would be something I would love to experience with my young nieces and nephews. Jillian Jigss

2. Something from Nothing  A blanket changes shapes over time, literally making something from the nothing left over from what it used to be. A beautiful story who’s premise resided in my heart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.  Paul Bunyan  Pancakes, a tall man and a big blue ox named Babe. But the take away from this…Pancakes!

5. Trumpet of the Swan I actually had my two nieces read this book. There was a lesson to be learned and it’s not just that a Swan can learn to play the trumpet. They loved it!

March 28: Top Ten Authors I’m Dying To Meet

Life gets in the way and I fall behind, but this topic is so exciting. Granted the only author I would ever want to meet is;

1.  Nora Roberts  I have read nearly everything Nora Roberts, I will continue to read anything Nora Roberts aka J.D. Robb. She is literally the only the author I have a remote interest in meeting. Weird, since I wouldn’t mind meeting a few of my other favorite authors.

The End!

Not your typical Top Ten Tuesdays I know. I first stumbled across one of her books in high school, it was not appropriate but throughout the inappropriateness there was a real story. There was character development, her stories are entrancing.

She writes under the pen name J.D. Robb and her In Death series are amazing, you would think after 25 books it would get boring but no, its 43 books strong! And I’m not even a fan of mysteries, I just love the characters that much!

And on the subject of Nora Roberts aka J.D Robb, have you guys heard of Inn BoonsBoro? It’s an actual Inn in Chesapeake Bay where each room is modeled after famous literary couples. It is my dream destination for every romantic occasion possible.

Check it out, the rooms of the Inn BoonsBoro rooms here

Happy Tuesday!
