Audiobook Review: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

I have a soft spot for the “grumpy old man” trope, and A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman hits that spot perfectly.  Ove is a curmudgeon with a long list of things he dislikes, a short fuse, and staunch principles. He is the person who patrols and neighborhood and keeps people in line, but hisContinue reading “Audiobook Review: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman”

Audiobook Review: The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close

You ever read a book where you want to be friends with the character for maybe a few hours, then you want to slowly “ghost” yourself out of their lives? Yea, The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close is kind of like that! Beth and Matt Kelly are Washington D.C. transplants. They leave New York when Matt isContinue reading “Audiobook Review: The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close”

Audiobook Review: Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin

I love a good thriller. I can’t remember where I first heard about Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin, but something made me want to get the audiobook version. I started listening and I was amazed. At first glance, it seems like this is a story you’ve read before, but as it continues, you realize thatContinue reading “Audiobook Review: Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin”

Audiobook Review: Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple

If you’ve been reading my posts for a while now, you know that I tend to listen to audiobooks while driving to different places. You may also know that I don’t drive a lot, or very far, so sometimes that means it can take me weeks to finish one audiobook! That is not the caseContinue reading “Audiobook Review: Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple”

Audiobook Review: South on Highland by Liana Maeby

Here’s the thing about all those daily e-book deal emails, every once in a while one comes along that sounds interesting. That was the case when I saw South on Highland by Liana Maeby. I can’t recall what email I saw it in, but I thought: “This sounds like a good listen. Let’s see howContinue reading “Audiobook Review: South on Highland by Liana Maeby”

Audiobook Review: The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty

So imagine that you’ve met the perfect guy. He’s considerate, he’s charming, he has a kid, he’s generally the whole package. There’s just one problem: he has a stalker, but you don’t actually mind that he has a stalker, because it makes your life more interesting. That’s the kind of thinking that frames Liane Moriarty’sContinue reading “Audiobook Review: The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty”

Audiobook Review: Landline by Rainbow Rowell

Everyone fantasizes a little about what they would do if they were given a chance to change history. There are so many discussions in pop culture about time travel and its repercussions, and with all of that to contend with Landline by Rainbow Rowell still presents a really unique perspective on the subject. It’s almost ChristmasContinue reading “Audiobook Review: Landline by Rainbow Rowell”

Audiobook Review: Requiem by Lauren Oliver (Delirium #3)

I got derailed from my original TBR pile this month, but I do not regret it one bit. The last installment of The Delirium Trilogy, Requiem is just as interesting as the previous two volumes. This volume, just like Pandemonium, is written in a different format. Instead of being told only from Lena’s point of viewContinue reading “Audiobook Review: Requiem by Lauren Oliver (Delirium #3)”

Audiobook Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver (Delirium #1)

I am a little, okay a lot, late to the Delirium party. By extension I am also late to the Lauren Oliver party, as well. I checked out a copy of this book from the Sarah Lawrence College library when it was first released, and I thought that I could read for fun and finishContinue reading “Audiobook Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver (Delirium #1)”
