Hearing no recommendations from my 2018 Book Recap, I put together a short 2019 Book List. Just like last year, I put together this list based on NYT Best Sellers, other website lists (Amazon, GoodReads, etc), leftovers from last year’s list, and recommendations from bloggers I follow.
I listened to Little Princes by Conor Grennan and loved it! Not only is it a touching true story, but it’s read by Conor himself. There are several good audiobook narrators (I loved My Korean Deli). But,. there is just something special about a true story, read by the author. For instance, the story of…
Since I’m in-between marathon training, I’ve been walking Sophie more (see number 15). And for some reason I prefer to listen to books/podcasts when I walk and music when I run. So I’m sharing the podcast I’ve been listening to and a few audiobooks I’ve finished.
I read a ton of books in 2018! Some of them were on my 2018 book list, some of them not. Some great, some good, and some so bad I didn’t finish. I can say that 99% of the books I read were borrowed from the library.
My last book review from my 2018 Book List is Multipliers by Liz Wiseman. It’s a business/leadership book about how some leaders multiply results, while some (often unintentionally) diminish results.
From my Cincinnati book list, Calling Me Home, is a book I requested from the library while I was waiting for others to come in. It is a predictable, but touching story about an unlikely friendship between two women and their journey to Cincinnati.
Everybody Always by Bob Goff wasn’t even on my 2018 book list, but somehow ended up in my library queue. With the country being so divided right now, we can all become “love in a world full of setbacks and difficult people.”
Memento Park by Mark Sarvas is an interesting read with an ending I never saw coming! In essence, it’s about how a man uncovers secrets about his dad after a lost piece of art is discovered. Sophie didn’t find it as interesting as I did. 🙂
With summer over and fall just around the corner, what better time to suggest a pool/beach read? Ha! But seriously, it took me that long to finish this book. Not because it wasn’t good and not because it was difficult, it’s because I’ve been so darn busy!
I’m sharing four recommended audiobooks that I’ve recently listened to and enjoyed. Some are from my 2018 book list, but some are just ones that popped up in my recommended list. All were read listens and would recommend depending on your mood.
