Greetings you all! We didn’t do a Top Ten Tuesday in a couple of weeks. Work work work…. But when my Mommy saw this week’s prompt from Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl she had a brainwave. The prompt for today is Book Titles that are complete sentences.
When my Mommy grew up, Mary Higgins Clark was the ultimate queen of crime and to this day, she will still pick up a MHC novel and enjoy it. My aunt Hannelize, has just about all the Mary Higgins Clark books printed. But have you ever noticed how many of her book titles are complete sentences? You can write a novel only with the book titles! Let me proof it:
It was Christmas Eve and the De Winters family had a fun-filled, dashing through the snow, day. All three De Winters children went to bed early to make sure Santa Claus don’t pass them by. We all know that he sees you when you’re sleeping and won’t leave any presents if you are still awake.
Just before midnight, there was a cry in the night. Mrs. De Winters jumped out of bed and ran to the nursery. It was empty. “Where are the children?“, she screamed in terror. The whole room was in a complete mess with toppled furniture and scattered toys. Mrs. De Winters rushed to the corner where she could she the cradle will fall any second. The cradle was also empty.
Within minutes the house was alight with blue and read police sirens and officers trampling over the clean carpets. Detective Sergeant Banes were barking orders. “You look for those children all around the town“. Banes were questioning Mr. De Winters in the study. “Is there anyone who acted suspicious lately on the street where you live?”
Mrs. De Winters were quietly sitting on the leather couch mumbling, “where are you now?” All of a sudden, she sat up straight and asked Detective Sergeant Banes to repeat his question. “Wait a minute!”, she cried out. “The new guy that moved into the house on the corner. Something is creepy there. The boys kicked their ball into his yard two days ago and he was furious. He screamed and shouted at them and told them “I’ve got my eyes on you“! I’m sure he has something to do with this.”, she exclaimed sobbing.
Banes was already on his feet. “Wheep no more, my Lady. We will find your children soon enough.”
I still need to write the rest, I’m sure I can get more titles to complete the latest best seller.
Do you think I can be the new Mary Higgins Clark? My Mommy is just looking at me with a rather bland expression. I think I did quite well!
Lots of Love,
