A lot has changed since I posted my last book review. It’s suddenly fall here in Cincinnati, NFL season has started, and I’ve completed two of my fall virtual races. And I’ve read a few books and listened to a few audiobooks. It’s a good mix of modern day novels, a thriller, and book written…
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!
I’ve tried to continue swim/bike/run training even though all my races have been cancelled. I also did the Tighter Together challenge, which was awesome! One thing that helps with runs is audiobooks. I recently made it through a few and one actual book.
During February I read four books, well three books and one audiobook. I read my first and definatley not last John Grisham book, a very odd novel that I still don’t quite understand, a gripping story about two neighbors, and the intense sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale.
Instead of writing a post after each book, I thought I’d simply write a shorter recap at the end of each month. My long 2020 list puts me at about ~2 books/month and I’m already behind. Sophie is very disappointed.
Looking at my 2019 book recap, I feel I did a pretty good job getting through my 2019 book list! Between reading books and listening to audiobooks I made through a lot!
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.
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…
I recently finished listening to Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty via audiobook. It’a another book that wasn’t on my 2019 book list, but happened to be available via the library app right before a 6-hour car ride. While I liked the book, it wasn’t my favorite book by Liane Moriarty.
I just finished Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris and couldn’t wait to share! It was so good! I first heard about it on the Young House Love podcast last year, but it didn’t quite make the 2019 book list cut.
