Book-A-Roons

Macaron . . .  just one “o”, but for the purpose of being bookish, it just sounds more fun with two!


Lord of the Roons 

Technically, since macaron is spelled with one “o” and not “oo”, it should read Lord of the Rons . . . but that’s just weird. Either way, wouldn’t these be lovely for Hobbits needing a second breakfast? I’m such a Lord of the Rings fan!

Umblemished-Roons

Recently, I had the privilege of hosting author Sara Ella while she was in Nashville for the Christy Awards. Since I had recently finished the first novel in her YA series, Unblemished . . . I had to make her some book-a-roons! And since her character loves peanut-butter M&M’s, I thought it appropriate to make . . .
