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 (January 23, 2022) 📚💖

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by 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.

Two Crime Thrillers: The Sorority Murder, Twenty Years Later #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge @HarperAudio @HarlequinBooks @KensingtonBooks @recordedbooks

Two cold case crimes, two crime thrillers. One book uses a podcast to gather new information and witnesses, the other is an investigative journalist trying to solve a 20 year old crime for her television show. Both use retired law enforcement to help, but they are very different, yet both enjoyable and entertaining.

Spell the Month in Books – January 2022

Reviews From the Stacks

Spell the Month in Books was originally created by Jana @ Reviews from the Stacks. Last year, I tried to read the books I used to spell the month, but that was quite difficult. I am not doing that this year, but just highlighting books that are either on my TBR or ones that I read and enjoyed.

I am going to try and use a theme each month. For January, I am going to try and use books set during the winter. If I have read the book, a link to my review will be posted as well. Clicking on the cover will take you to Goodreads.
