Top 10 Tuesday — Mardi Gras!

16 Feb

I don’t have to tell you that nothing is normal right now! Events are cancelled left and right, including 2021 Mardi Gras! Although Mardi Gras is celebrated across the Gulf Coast, New Orleans is famous for it. I went a few years ago to some family-friendly Mardi Gras events (yes, that’s a thing) and had a great time. New Orleans is one of my favorite places to visit. Despite the dirty streets and less than savory areas, the city is a great gumbo mix of culture, art, food, and fun.

This week’s Top 10 Tuesday is all about books with covers of purple, green, and yellow — the colors of Mardi Gras. Of course I am tweaking the topic yet again, this time with books set in New Orleans. Ranging from colonial times to present day and historical to suspense to women’s fiction, the books capture the New Orleans vibe. There’s even one that has a green/purple/yellow cover 😉 .

    Mardi Gras definitely doesn’t seem very family-friendly, so I’m glad to hear that there are events that are more G-rated 🙂 I’ve been to New Orleans once, but I actually didn’t even get a chance to look around. Another time, hopefully. In the meantime, I’ll have to check out some of the books you’ve suggested here. New Orleans would definitely make a colorful backdrop for a novel!

    Happy TTT!
