Top Ten Tuesday - November 22

It is time for Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  Anyone can join and its fun to read what others have to say. This week's Top Ten is:

Ten Authors I'd Love to have at My Thanksgiving Feast

This is a good one..... I wish I had a table big enough for all ten and then some. I really had to think hard to pick ten of my favorite authors. Here is my choice in no particular order. Just ones off the top of my head:

1.  Stephen King - I wouldn't let him carve the turkey though

2.  Kate DiCamillo - she has written two of my favorite children's books, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and The Tale of Despereaux.

3.  Dr. Seuss - he'd just be silly and funny.

4. Aldo Leopold - very wise and speak's from the heart.

5.  J.K. Rowling - I find her inspiring.

6. Rick Riordan - my kids would love to have him and would beg him to tell a fantastical story.

7. Santa Montefiore - her writing makes me want to run away to the countryside and live in a quaint cottage by a little lake somewhere and paint...........

8.  Nicholas Sparks - the only time I read romance novels is by him.

9.  Judy Blume - she captured my heart with her books when I was a kid. I'm glad that I could share her books with my kids too.

10. Paula Deen - does she count as an author? She has a ton of cookbooks and I could use some extra help making a feast for all these people.

Looking forward to reading who others have picked. Have a great week!


  1. Can I come too, please?
    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday post. :)

  2. I picked Paula Deen too. I needed someone to make a dessert that everyone would love.

  3. I had JK Rowling and Dr. Seuss too. I chose Anthony Bourdain in place of Paula Deen, but I'd love to have them both. I think she'd be sassy enough to put Tony in his place. Also how could I forget Stephen King?!

  5. paula deen is an awesome guest. she's fun and knows how to cook!

  6. Haha yes, Dr. Seuss! He would be fun to chat with :)

  7. I wonder if Nicholas Sparks was there if he'd have you crying in your dessert.
