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.
After zipping through The Woman in the Window audiobook, I started The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh. It got a place on my 2019 book list because it has 3.5 starts on Amazon, 3.52 on goodreads and is longlisted for the 2018 Man Booker Prize. So, once again I went in without reading the description…
I recently zipped through the audiobook The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn. It’s a thrilling novel full of twists and turns! There was just enough intrigue to keep you guessing what was based on paranoia and what was real.
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.
