From the Depression to the 70s: Mrs. Wiggins & Bones of a Saint, #AudiobookReview

Today, I am reviewing two very different audiobooks. Mrs. Wiggins takes place in the South during the Depression and Bones of a Saint is set in the 70s in small town California. Both audiobooks were very well narrated, although I do believe Bones of a Saint was a mismatch. I received a copy of these audiobooks from the publisher, Recorded Books, through Netgalley. The ratings and opinions shared are my own.

Two Amish Fiction Audiobooks: The Roll of the Drums, Softly Blows the Bugle by Jan Drexler #AudiobookReview

Last year a friend of mine gave me a copy of The Sound of Distant Thunder, the first book in this series. I really enjoyed it and wanted to continue with this series. When the audiobooks of the next two in the series were made available to me, I jumped at the chance to continue with this series and am glad that I did. This series is set in Ohio during and just after the Civil War. Amish people are pacifists and do not believe in war, but when they are conscripted/drafted they have to find a way to reconcile their religion with this legal responsibility. You do not necessarily need to read this series in order, but for complete enjoyment and no spoilers, I do recommend it.

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.

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.
