March 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.

“Do you smellllllll what the Rock is cookin’?” Two Books about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson #BookReview

My husband and I were huge wrestling fans. We used to go over to Detroit to Joe Louis Arena for live wrestling events. We were more of the Hulk Hogan, Macho Man, and Rick Flair generation, but we did watch The Rock on Monday Night Raw and Friday Night Main Event. When these two books were offered on Edelweiss, I wanted to check them out. Of course he is know just as much for his acting career as he is for wrestling and these books showcase both of those.

Cozy Mystery Reviews: Murder at the Taffy Shop, Peach Clobbered, Ripe for Vengeance, Nothing Bundt Trouble #AudiobookReviews

Over the last week, I have listened to several cozy mystery books while outside working in my yard. At one time or another I received each of these books from the publisher via Netgalley or Edelweiss, but I listened to each of them using Hoopla, Scribd or one from the publisher. I enjoyed them all and with the exception of one narrator, I would not hesitate to listen to them again. The ratings and opinions shared are my own.

Stacking the Shelves (April 10, 2021) 📚📚

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga Reviews and  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 (I hope).

Saturday Morning For Kids #BookReviews

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.

This week I am reviewing a few books that I read to one or all of my grandchildren over the last few weeks. I have added their comments or reactions where possible. All of these books were provided through Netgalley upon request. The ratings and opinions shared are our own.
