I had great ambition to read several of these books last month. I only made it through one of these, but did finish four audiobooks!

White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo {Audiobook}

I mentioned White Fragility in my last book review post and I was surprised how quickly it was available on audiobook from the library. I listened to it on one of my long car rides, it was only about 5 hours. It’s not an “easy read”, and possibly even harder to listen to. I was easily distracted by thinking deeper about what she was saying. Then I’d lose my spot in the book. I think the point of this book is to think more critically, so I guess it worked. But, I would suggest the actual book, not the audiobook version.

Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney

Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk is a delightful little story! It could easily be read in a day or two (or a long afternoon at the beach). It tells the tale of a 10-mile adventurous walk that Lillian takes in New York City on New Year’s Eve. Lovely writing, with a good mixture of adventure, sadness, and humor.

The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware {Audiobook}

After listening to The Lying Game by Ruth Ware, I knew what I was getting into when I downloaded The Turn of the Key. I was quickly sucked in by the story (and Scottish accents) and anxious to find out which child died and how.

Nothing to Prove by Jennie Allen {Audiobook}

I’ll liken Nothing to Prove by Jennie Allen to the Christian version of Untamed or Girl, Wash Your Face. All written by strong, motivational women with a confident point of view. By contrast, Nothing to Prove, ties everything back to Jesus though. Best audiobook I’ve listened to for a long time.

The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson {Audiobook}

The Kind Worth Killing got on my book list from a Young House Love Podcast recommendation. It’s a relatively short audiobook, but full of thrilling twists and turns as Ted plots his wife’s murder. I’ve kind of been on a thriller kick lately!
