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.

Novellas by 2 Authors I Enjoy, Mother’s Day Mayhem and Criminally Cocoa

These are two novellas in series that I really enjoy by two authors I follow. Both of these are cozy mysteries, whose mystery in these books is not murder. They are short, fun and a great teaser for the series. You can read them as standalone books, but I recommend you check out both of these well written series. I received them both from Netgalley upon my request. The ratings, ideas and opinions shared are my own. Continue reading “Novellas by 2 Authors I Enjoy, Mother’s Day Mayhem and Criminally Cocoa”

Saturday Morning For Kids (May 18, 2019) #11

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. If you love children’s books, or have a favourite from your childhood, join us in introducing them to a new generation of readers. Feel free to use my logo above, but link back to my post as well.
