Top Ten Tuesday: Top Authors I’ve Only Read One Book From But NEED to Read More

ttt.jpg.jpg
The topic this week was pretty easy for me, which makes me sad because it is all my fault!  There are so many times that I read a book… and the minute I finish I say to myself.. “I NEED ANOTHER BOOK BY THIS AUTHOR NOOOOW!!”  Unfortunately, I don’t always follow through, which is ridiculous because I know I’m missing out on amazing books!  I walked over to my shelves and these are 10 fabulous authors that I have failed!

In no particular order…

Random Rantings: Focal Points For My Book Rockin’ Birthing Experience

I have to give birth this week.  In fact, I could give birth at any moment.

I started making a checklist of all the crap I need in my hospital bag.  I’m supposed to bring focal points.  You know– objects or pictures that will help keep me calm, focused, and ready to kick some ass during labor and delivery!  Thought about it for about thirty seconds and a few specific images popped into my head.  I discussed this with Mr. Betty and he is far from thrilled.  The pictures I’ve chosen will probably mysteriously vanish from my bag on the way to the hospital, but…

These are the book boyfriends that made the cut to enter the delivery room:

ENCORE:

There are many other boys that probably would have made it into my bag if I could find a person that represents them well, BUT… that isn’t always the case.  For example, I’d love to bring some of the McGarry Boys with me.  Noah and Isaiah would definitely be more than welcome to help me birth this baby!  If you had to choose some book boyfriends as focal points, who would you choose?  Include a link to a picture!
