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.

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Book Covers that make you Hungry

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This weeks top ten was things you love to eat while reading. I seldom eat while reading because I do not want to get food on books or muck up my kindle. Because of that, I saw this adaptation on some other blogs and thought it was right up my alley. Reading a lot of cozy mysteries, food is a huge theme, so here goes. Clicking on the cover will take you to Goodreads. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Book Covers that make you Hungry”
