Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is absolutely purrrrrfect! “10 Books that make me smile”. It hasn’t been the easiest time for smiles around the world lately. My mommy loves singing the following song to me:
“Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky you’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear maybe ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile- what’s the use of crying
You’ll find that…”
Even if you have to wear your mask THE.WHOLE.DAY. Remember to smile behind it. And if you need something to smile about, here’s my Mommy’s 10 favorite books to bring a smile behind your mask:
Good Omens by Terry Prachett and Neil Gaiman Why? Aziraphale (angel with some bad) and Crowley (demon with some good)
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery Why? Anne with an ‘e’ (you just smiled, didn’t you?)
Right ho, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse Why? Right ho, Jeeves! Yes, Sir.
Me before you by Jojo Moyes Why? Louisa Clark. Bumble-bee tights.
Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes Why? That’s hard to explain. But you will smile.
If tomorrow comes by Sidney Sheldon Why? If you have to be a thief. Be like Tracy. Or Jeff.
Recipes for love and murder by Sally Andrew Why? Tannie Maria and her agony-aunt column.
The 100 year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared by Jonas Jonason Why? Those slippers tread many miles.
Yes Please by Amy Poehler Why? The robots will kill us all.
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion Why? I’ve never seen my daddy enjoy a book more.
I hope that some of these brought a smile to your face. Please share your smiles with us as well! And don’t forget to link up with Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl to share your TTT with the whole world.
Lots of love,
