Top Ten Tuesday ~ Characters That Deserve Their Own Books

Today's top ten is characters that need their own book. This is an interesting topic. There are always characters in the back ground that are some what mysterious. Here are a few that I feel have a story to tell.

768950 This series focused on Susan Mitchell, but I would love to learn more about what happened to her son Jake after the series was over. I also would like a prequel about her husband Mark and his early days in our reality. And I think Kieran and Nolan deserve their own book as well.

1793400 Aunt Birdie is a charming, loveable character. I would love a prequel focusing on her love story, but I would need to keep the tissues handy.

9523275 Etzel Stifflebeam and Mina Klug need their own story. And it better be a romance. That's all I'm sayin'.

2970548 I loved this book, but I really feel like there was a lot of story left to tell. Elin, Kirsten and Sofia each need their own book.

What characters would you like to see more of? Check out some other top ten lists at The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Tuesday ~ Books to Reread

Today I am linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday. Today's top ten list is books I want to reread. I'm kind of excited about this list, because I have been rereading books lately. I want to be purposeful next year about rereading some old favorites, too. So, here some books I would like to read again.

Sword of Lyric

Threads of Change

Chronicles of Narnia

Lord of the Rings

Jane Eyre


Do you like to Reread books, or are you a one time only reader? I'm usually a one timer, but I find as I get older, I forget a lot of the details. I'm looking forward to refreshing my memory with these.

Book Review ~ Where Treetops Glisten

 I saw this book around on different message board, and I thought it looked really good. It is a collection of three novellas following the Turner siblings as they serve their country and live their lives during WW2.

In White Christmas, Abigail Turner has sworn off love after her boyfriend was killed in Pearl Harbor. Then she meets a man who needs her help to solve a mystery.In I'll Be Home for Christmas, Pete Turner tries to show a young widow that he isn't the bully that she remembers from childhood. The final story, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, takes us to war torn Europe where Merry Turner is trying to forget that the love of her life was a traitor.

Each of the novellas is written by a different author, but they tie together very well. I think I enjoyed I'll Be Home for Christmas the most out of the three. All of the stories deal with themes of loss and redemption. They are the perfect short reads for the Christmas season. I recommend this book for readers of romance and historical fiction.

I received this book for free from Waterbrook Press for the purpose of review.
