Happy Diwali.

And for those who celebrate GUY FAWKES NIGHT:-
Stay safe and remember to follow the FIREWORK CODE.

Thanks to several blogger buddies, I thought this looked such fun and decided to give it a go using some of the books I have on my tbr mountain.. The idea being you look at up to 10 books on your shelf/tbr pile/wish list and arrange them in such a way as to tell a story.

(I) The Apprentice (Tess Gerritson)

(in) THE Lollipop Shoes (Joanne Harris)

(came because) An Unholy Alliance (Susanna Gregory)

(broke out at the) Turning Angel (Greg Iles)

(during) Night Song Of The Last Tram (Robert Douglas)

(which is always attended by) The White Woman On The Green Bicycle (Monique Roffey)

(and) Holly (Albert French)

(wearing) Shiny Pennies & Grubby Pinafores (Winnifred Foley)

(and eating) Bitter Chocolate (Lesley Lokko)

(all) For The Love Of A Sister (Meg Hutchinson)

Happy Diwali to you too. Your wishes mean the most...:))))

Just going by your picture, it does not seem like you are a Hindu or person of Indian origin. Still you made the point to wish Diwali to all your readers. Thanks :))))

Happy Diwali to you too!! What a great photo :) Can I borrow that to wish folks on my blog?(It is okay to say no..)

Alison said...

Happy Diwali to people too.
What do people do on Guy Fawkes night?

Kelly said...

This is clever! Considering I have plenty of titles to choose from in my TBR stack, I need to do one of these entries, too. Thanks for the idea!

I like the "shiny pennies and grubby pinafores eating bitter chocolate" image.

Dizzy C said...

Clever idea with book titles :)

Happy Diwali to those who celebrate it!

Looks like a very wet Guy Fawkes night here in the UK.
We are having fireworks, bonfire and baked potatoes tomorrow night.

Enjoy ur weekend!

To all of you asking about Guy Fawkes I've now included a link to an 'official' explanation or to see the Petty Witter version click on Post Extra above which will take you to last years post.

Deepali - Of course you can share it.

I'm always a little bummed when I lose followers but make every effort to
turn every lost follower into a learning experience so I can improve my

On the flip side, I only stop following people when they give me a reason to
such as being totally off message or being too controversial in an negative,
over-the-top way.

Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!

What a fun post...though not surprising they usually are. ^_^ Love the story your TBR told...I wonder what mine would say... *ponders* Have a great weekend!

Alyce said...

Thanks for the explanation! I had now idea that was what it was about, but it sounds like fun.

Suko said...

They certainly do tell a story. What fun! I don't think I could "organize" my own TBR books as expertly.

Happy Diwali to you and everyone else. May this festival of lights dissolve all the darkness from your lives. Take care
