Carla Loves To Read

Author

Carla

I am a retired teacher/librarian. I love to read, especially to my grandchildren. I read most genres, but lately have gravitated to cozy mysteries, romance (not erotic) and Christian Fiction. I do enjoy a good thriller every now and then, as well as some fantasy and the odd sci-fi. I have ventured into Blog tours, but I do not do well reading under pressure. I travel to Florida for 2 to 3 months in the winter (Canadian Snowbirder) but otherwise live in Windsor, Ontario Canada. Feel free to follow and comment on my blog. I try to respond to all comments.

Stacking the Shelves (June 13, 2021) 📚📚

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga Reviews and  Marlene of Reading Reality. It’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 physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, books for review from authors, Netgalley, Edelweiss or publishers,  gifts or books you won. If you click on the covers, it will take you to Goodreads (I hope). Once again, I added more books to my TBR than I had planned. I have absolutely no willpower, especially when it comes to books and reading. Continue reading “Stacking the Shelves (June 13, 2021) 📚📚”

Saturday Morning for Kids: Books about Feelings and Emotions

Each of these books deals in some way with feelings and emotions. I read them over the last week with my granddaughter. Some she got the message right away, others not so much, but she did enjoy them all. Each of these books was an ebook provided by the publisher. The rating and the opinions shared are our own.

Two Gripping Thrillers by Angela Marsons: Dead Souls, Broken Bones #AudiobookReview

I have been working my way through Angela Marson’s, D.I. Kim Stone series. I recently started purchasing the audiobooks through Audible using my credits. I really enjoy the narration by Jan Cramer. Well, I have read or listened to the first 7, so halfway there. I also have the prequel, which I will listen to next. My goal is to catch up by the end of the year, but we shall see how that goes.
