Romance to Make Your Heart Happy: Bayou Dreaming, Wildflower Season, Hit Me With Your Best Scot #BookReview #Audiobook #Romance

This week, I read a variety of romance stories. From small town Louisiana policing to those recovering from a devastating storm in North Carolina, then off to Regency London where we meet a rugged and stubborn highlander, I read about three very different couples finding their happily ever after. The last is a bit steamy with some descriptive scenes, but the story was quite enjoyable. All were provided to me at one time by the publisher upon request, but I did read/listens with them all listened to audiobooks from my public library. The ratings and opinions shared are my own.

Saturday Morning for Kids (Part 1), Picture Books with my Granddaughter

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.

This week I am highlighting some books that I read with my granddaughter and some with my youngest grandson. We always enjoy reading and bedtime gives us a chance to read a few books together. I added comments or reactions from her, where they fit. All books were provided by the publisher at one time or another upon request. The rating and opinions shared are ours.

August Wrap Up, Challenge Update

I wanted to have a page where I listed all my 2021 Reading Challenges. I hope this will help me to keep them organized and that I won’t forget any of them. My plan is to update this page at the end of each month with my progress. I will also use the same book for more than one challenge, so it will not be impossible to complete as many of my challenges as possible.

I have not updated every month, but almost. It is now the end of August, so here is my end of summer update. I am quite happy with my progress. As of the end of August, I have completed 7/9 of my challenges. The Spell the Month in Books Challenge is a monthly so is ongoing.
