I‘m a sucker for any book synopsis that mentions twins, so I couldn‘t pass this one up (plus the twins in question even have blue-green eyes! A shout out to #SweetValleyHigh perhaps?!). This domestic mystery isn‘t exactly unpredictable and the characters are not very easy to connect with, but it‘s a fast-paced listen. I‘m not sure if I will read more from this #NewToYouAuthor #AuldLangReads #AudioColoring

This book certainly garnered a lot of hype! But the main character‘s book obsession and love of true crime podcasts drew me in- and I could hardly tear myself away from listening! The performance is great, too-the accents are wonderful & the fast pace & twisting plot make this a fun read! This completes January‘s #ReadWithMrBook challenge- #OneWordTitle! Glad I revisited this author since I didn‘t care for her #debut! #AuldLangReads #AudioColoring

ljuliel Sounds interesting. Gonna have to look this up. 1w
TorieStorieS @ljuliel I loved the audio! I think I have your email - I will try to send it your way! Let me know if it works!! ❤️ 1w
ljuliel I changed my email a couple months back. I apparently got a virus or somehow got put on a mailing list for NEKKID PEOPLE stuff. Yuk. I appreciate the offer, but if it‘s the Audible onebook thing, I‘ve already gotten one a long time ago, so wouldn‘t be allowed a second. I really do appreciate the thought, though. 💕 1w
TorieStorieS @ljuliel Oh my!!! 😳 I can see why you changed it!! Well I do recommend the audio of this one- the accents are all great!! 1w
ljuliel I‘ll definitely look it up on audio. It sounds terrific. 😊 1w
TorieStorieS @ljuliel I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!! 🤞🤞🤞 1w

I couldn‘t stop listening to this #KindleUnlimited #TrueCrime read! Horrifyingly fascinating, this tells the story of what went on behind the closed doors (and secluded yard) of a Washington home. It‘s dark, and definitely nauseating at times with how sadistic this woman, Shelly, really is... plus I think this is the first audiobook that I have listened to where someone had my name!! #AudioColoring

This is my first #ReadAroundTheWorldChallenge book of 2020! The country for this month is #Taiwan and I chose this noir-inspired mystery to listen to! It certainly has a lot of details on life in Taiwan and Taipei specifically! There are a lot of cultural points made clear and while I can see some being frustrated at the way this slows the pacing, I actually enjoyed these sections. It made for a great fit for the challenge! #AudioColoring

On my TBR for a while, I chose it as one of the options for my book club to kick off 2020-our voting resulted in the first ever 3-way tie, so I want to make sure that I have read all 3 books before our next meeting- though this one isn‘t the one that ultimately won. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this WWII novel set in 1940 London. The characters come to life & I found myself listening at every opportunity-not just while #AudioColoring!

Was #audiocoloring, then got distracted by @MidnightBookGirl‘s post about Neil Gaiman‘s “Nicolas Was,” so I had to go read it. You‘re right, that was so creepy! I had to read it a couple of times. Definitely makes an impact. I think I loved it.

“Ho. Ho. Ho.”

Also, I‘m logging one more hour for #24b42020.

Well I guess I expected something a little more Christmas-y from this Christmas classic! This was an Audible freebie from 2013 that I only just listened to, so while I appreciate lightening my digital TBR, I guess I had higher hopes for this novella. The story is sweet enough and well-performed and it‘s my #PublicDomain for #Booked2019! #WinterGames #ReadNosedReindeer 26pts #AudioColoring

Cinfhen Wow!!! You‘ve been an Audible listener a long time 🤗I just really got into audiobooks this year but they are quickly becoming my favorite medium. Do u have any recommendations??? 3w
TorieStorieS @Cinfhen I joined in 2012, but got more invested the following year! I have a few super favorite performers- Caroline Lee is a great Australian performer, Kirby Heyborne is terrific- Macleod Andrews is also great!! You‘ve inspired me to make some best of the decade/year posts so more to come! 3w
StayCurious Excellent! +21 for holiday read! 3w

BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m amazed at how many audiobooks I have that are OLD. My mom and I were early adopters of audio books. Back when we joined Audible we had to download files and burn them to CDs! Today‘s methods are a gazillion times easier! I also rented audiobooks on cassette from a little neighborhood shop back in the early 1990s. 🤪@Cinfhen 3w
TorieStorieS @BarbaraTheBibliophage Wow!! I didn‘t know that was how Audible started! I do have a few audiobooks on CD- but the format really is at its best today, I think! I appreciate being able to easily go back 15 seconds and the way your place is impeccably saved!! 😃 3w
Cinfhen That‘s crazzzzy @BarbaraTheBibliophage you REALLY ARE an #OG 😘😘 3w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @TorieStorieS For sure, the technology has improved a ton! 3w

This is the equivalent of mashing together the story of the three wise men and the birth of Jesus and an action movie. It certainly is action packed and pretty fun! I guess I was hoping for something a little more Christmas-y! Still, it‘s pretty fun- and always good to cross another one of the monthly TBR! #WinterGames #ReadNosedReindeer #AudioColoring
