Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Marlene of Reading Reality. Itโ€™s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in a physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, books for review from authors, Netgalley, Edelweiss or publishers, as well as gifts or books you won. If you click on the covers, it will take you to Goodreads, if it is on there.ย

Saturday Morning for Kids: Maya Angelou, Dwayne Johnson, Terry Fox, Hedy Lamar, & Freddie Mercury #BookReview #NonFiction #Children @FLCBooks

This meme was started by Rae Longest at Powerful Women Readers. As I am a grandmother, who loves to read to her grandchildren, a mother who loved to read to and with her children, and a retired teacher librarian, this meme really attracted me.

First Line Friday: January 20, 2022

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Reading Is My SuperPower.

What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but donโ€™t give anything else about the book away just yet โ€“ you need to hook the reader first
  • Finallyโ€ฆ reveal the book!

Cozy Mystery Mini Reviews: Vinyl Resting Place, Muddled Through & Peanut Butter Panic #BookReview #Audiobook

The first couple of weeks of January found me reading and listening some fun cozy mysteries. I enjoy a good cozy and two of these are from series that are favourites of mine. Vinyl Resting Place is the first in a new cozy mystery series and I enjoyed all three of them. Once again I had both an ebook and audiobook, so I was able to listen while exercising in the pool and read while laying out in the sun. A win/win for sure.
