Early this year, I listened to and loved Britt-Marie was Here. I then added all of Fredrik Backman’s audiobooks to my wishlist. Thanks to an Audible fairy, I was gifted a copy of A Man Called Ove. The ratings do not lie, once again I was transported as Backman made me fall in love with a grumpy old man named Ove and the folks in his community.
I read The Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole the first book in the Immortals After Dark series in the anthology Blood Red Kiss and knew two things. First I needed more of this paranormal world, and second, it HAD to be on audio. Robert Petkoff narrates and is a personal favorite. Heat, snark, stubbornness and a whole lot of heart had me listening to A Hunger Like No Other into the wee hours.
Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet is the second novel in the Kingmaker Chronicles series and was one of my most anticipated audios for 2017. Once again I was swept up in this world with its mythology, kick-ass heroine, and motley crew. While I devoured the audio, it was not without flaws and disappointments.
In today’s edition of Nonna’s Corner I am sharing Echo Echo by Marilyn Singer. Echo Echo a collection of reverso poems and greek myths. Beautifully illustrated by Josee Masse it shares some of our favorite stories from of Medusa to Pegasus. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
Today I am delighted to share the second book that came in the box of children’s books from Penguin. Hoot and Peep by Lita Judge is an adorable story about siblings who are different. Sophia and I loved the colorful illustrations and sweet story. Enjoy one of the cookies we baked and grab a cup of joe.
Thanks to a fellow blogger I received a box of children’s books from Penguin and will be sharing them with you this summer. When the box arrived Sophia’s eyes lit up. She loves opening packages and squealed when she saw what was inside. In the box where three books, and today we are sharing Raybot by Adam F. Watkins. This was the book Sophia demanded to read first. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy! You will want to pick up Raybot for the little ones in your life 🙂
What the Heart Remembers by Bette Lee Crosby is the third book in her Memory House Collections. In the last book, we meet Max Martinelli, a young woman who is also touched with the ability to feel/sense the past in objects. Haunted by the memory of an unfinished romance, she journeys back to Paris looking for answers and instead finds something unexpected.
It’s time again for Nonna’s Corner and today I am sharing Llama Llama time to share by Anna Dewdney. Grab a cup of coffee and check out this story about sharing for your little ones…
