Carla Loves To Read

Author

carhicks

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 comment.

Children’s Books, Mini-Reviews

Another group of reviews on a group of children’s books I read. I only read a couple with my grandchildren, so most are just my thoughts. All of these books were received from the publishers upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
