A surprise hidden in every book...

Hey - have you found the "easter eggs" in these books? If you haven't, you might want to revisit them. So...what exactly are you looking for?

In case you don't know it already, an "easter egg" is a nod to a favorite influencer on a work of art. In my case, the work of art is fiction.

How do you go about finding an easter egg? In this series, you're looking for two things: an object in a chapter image, and a quote in the text.

First, find an object in a chapter image that you recognize from one of my three favorite series, either Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, or Harry Potter. It might be obvious or it might be more subtle. True fans of these older series will recognize it right away. The rest of you may have to work for it.


This object points you to the favorite series that the quote part of the easter egg is from, and tells you it's in that chapter. So when you spot the object, look for a familiar quote from the series it goes with as you read the chapter. Again, true fans of these older series will recognize them right away. The rest of you...well, you know...


You may find only one image-quote easter egg duo in a book, or you may find more. The fun is in the hunt. Happy easter egg hunting!
