In 2013, I celebrated Holy Week with An Easter Egg Hunt. Here, I referenced Wikipedia’s definition of an Easter Egg – a hidden message in a work which refers to something else. This can be an inside joke or a friend’s name. Also in 2013, Candice of warmcuppatea posted twice on this topic – Literary Easter Eggs – Stephen King Edition and Literary LOST Easter Eggs – Part II. By the way, when I Googled “Literary Easter Eggs,” her Stephen King Edition post came up on the first page of results. Props to you, Candice! 😉
This Easter, I’m sharing some books that have Easter Eggs. These might be references to other works or might have namesake characters. As was true with the books I shared on Valentine’s Day,  you can click on the covers, visit Jorie’s Store on Amazon, and shop for some great reading. Making purchases at Jorie’s Store funds future giveaways! 🙂
