True Colors Series: The White City (1) and The Blue Cloak (5) #BookReview #Audiobook #BeatTheBacklist #2022AudiobookChallenge @TantorAudio

The True Colors series is a great Christian Historical Fiction Series. The stories are based on actual historical events, but with a fictionalized story. The thing I enjoy is many of the events are not well known, so I end up heading out and doing a bit of research on my own each time. The other interesting thing is that each of the books is written by a different author, but they are all well written and follow the same theme. Although there are 12 books in the series, they can be read in any order, as they are all separate stories about different events. I am working my way through this series for my Finish a Series Challenge as well as Beat the Backlist.

Reading my Zodiac: The Ten Thousand Doors of January #BookReview #Audiobook

45421716. sx318

Last month, I wrote a post Books to Read Based on my Zodiac Sign: Saggitarius (November 22 – December 22). I planned on picking one of the books to read before December 22nd and based on reviews I read, I selected The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow and chose to listen to the audiobook as it was available at my library. I really enjoyed it and am glad that is the one I selected. Scroll down for my thoughts.

Two Women’s Fiction/Romance #BookReviews: The Family Journal, Heard it in a Love Song #Audiobook

Both The Family Journal and Heard it in a Love Song were a combination of Women’s Fiction and Romance. They had women making decisions about their lives as well as deciding what they wanted out of that life. Yes, there is romance and love involved, but that is not all there is in these stories. I did read/listens with both of them and enjoyed both formats.

Some Cozy Mysteries to check out: Read or Alive, Deadly Vows, Deadly Ride #BookReview #Audiobook #CozyMystery

August was cozy mystery here at Carla Loves to Read and I spent some time catching up on some series that I had fallen behind on. I will say that although I enjoyed these books, they were not as exciting as I had hoped. They had good mysteries, but I missed the quirkiness I normally enjoy in a cozy mystery. I listened to all of these books using Hoopla through my local library.

Throwback Thursday (August 5, 2021)

Throwback Thursday meme was originally hosted by Renee@It’s Book Talk, but it seems that Renee is no longer active in the blogging community. It is a way to share some of your old favorites as well as sharing books that you’re FINALLY getting around to reading that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on your TBR list while you continue to pile more titles on top of them! These older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board.
