This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

Purple, Yellow and Green Books

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl

Today is Mardi Gras, and the colours associated with this holiday are purple, yellow, and green. Those three colours also happen to be my three favourites.

Red and White Books to Make You Feel Festive

I’ve been very lucky that the book has been just as good on the inside as the outside was, too. If you want some autumn-hued reading, then I’ve got some great ideas here for you.
