I’ve listened to a handful of audiobooks over the last few months, and I thought I’d do a roundup of little reviews! Most of these have already been mentioned in my monthly wrap-ups, BUT today I’ll be including an addition to the review: comments on the audiobook recording itself. Sometimes you never know if you should read a book or if listening to the audiobook would be a better experience. I’ll give you all you need to know for 5 audiobooks I’ve listened to in the mini reviews below.
You know, when I first started brainstorming for this post, I was having a hard time. Eventually I realized why: when I’m reading, I don’t tend to get too scared. Even if I’m totally loving a book and super engaged in it, some small part of my brain always knows that I’m safe at home, cuddled up in bed (usually), with no danger in sight. So, when characters get into creepy situations, I never get all that scared.
But, once I started thinking about it, I realized I’ve read TONS of books with settings that are creepy, scary, and all-over totally unpleasant. NOT places I’d ever willingly go. So in the end, this list wasn’t terribly difficult.
This past weekend, I went to my first ever real life bookish event!
It ended up being a bit of a fail. But it was also really really great.
So I went to see Leigh Bardugo at her “Midnight Tales” Tour in my city. My city! Cool authors never come here to homey ol’ Michigan. I was excited, and I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t go. So I did go–alone, mind you. I don’t have really any bookish friends in Real Life, and I also don’t mind going to things alone.
However, since this was my first bookish event, I didn’t quite know what I was getting myself into. Hence…the eventual fails.
September just flew by! I’ve been keeping busy with my multitude of personal projects–they seem to be getting out of hand lately! Writing, crochet, blogging, keeping up with my TPT store, reading, working out…it’s been A Lot.
But it’s been a good month, and I finally feel truly ready for fall. (If only it’d stop being so abnormally hot around here…) I’ve been productive and busy and overall pretty positive about life. Which is great!
This post is basically just what the title says: 10 books that are coming out in these remaining few months of 2017 that I’m SUPER pumped about! I know people tend to do these types of posts quarterly…or perhaps just twice a year…but I’m going to be original and cut the year into thirds. Yes, I know I’m weird awesome.
ANYWAY, here we go, 10 upcoming releases and why I’m excited about them!
