Audiobooks for Long Car Rides

As I’ve mentioned, my new job requires me to be on the road a few times a month. Rather than listen to hours of music or talk radio I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks! I listen to them much faster than I read books, so, once again, I grouped four together.

BR: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is a powerful and moving novel about police brutality and systematic racism. It was on my 2019 book list and I had requested the hardcover and audiobook knowing that it would be a long waitlist. I started listening to the audiobook and I got through about 75% of…

4 Recommended Audiobooks

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.
