Front Page Murder | Joyce St. Anthony

Mehso-so

A fun set of characters set during WW2, this cozy mystery is a fun read. However, while I didn‘t guess all the details of the twists, I did guess most of the twists and was two steps ahead of Irene the whole way. The ending left a few things hanging and seemed a bit rushed, but overall it was a fun story and I liked the characters. #dreamscapemedia #alc #librofm

katy4peas The narration also could have used a bit more editing as I could hear page turning and button clicking which bugs me. 🤷‍♀️ 2mo

I Must Betray You | Ruta Sepetys
post image
Pickpick

Ruta Sepetys has become one of my favorite current authors of #YA #HistoricalFiction for the way she writes realistic characters in moments of history that aren‘t already well represented in fiction. This is a story of life in communist Romania and the revolution of 1989 from the perspective of 17 year old Cristian.

Audio duration: 7 hours 9 minutes

* I received this #audiobook through the Libro.fm #ALC program for educators. #Librofm

Daisey This one is definitely more YA than MG, but I‘m still adding it to my #MiddleGradeMarchThroughTime historical fiction timeline. 2mo

Starting my #pop22 #SocialHorror book. It sounds interesting. 👍🏻 it was helpful that the blurb outright said social horror! 😂

I have three reviews to write. Hopefully they‘ll come later today. I‘m going through one of those times where life just catches up with you. 🤷🏻‍♀️ hopefully things will improve soon! 😁

BarbaraBB How do you find these books?! Fascinating 😀 3mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen @AmyG @squirrelbrain about 20% in and still deciding how I feel. The book starts in the middle of the story, so I‘m still gaining traction. 3mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB lol! I browse audiobooks the way people browse in a bookstore. 😂😂 work with what I got! 3mo
Suet624 I think I might be @BarbaraBB ‘s shadow - I was wondering the same thing. You find and read so many books I‘ve never heard of. 3mo
Megabooks @Suet624 thanks! Yeah, I just like browsing on the internet because we have no bookstore in my town. Plus audiobooks don‘t take up space! 😂 3mo
BarbaraBB @Suet624 My shadow? You‘re mostly my influencer 😀😘 3mo

Libro.fm is hosting an audiobook listening challenge! https://blog.libro.fm/2022-listening-challenge/

If you‘ve been looking for a provider besides Audible, this is a great choice! Libro.fm sells books DRM-free and also splits their proceeds with whatever independent bookstore you choose! I‘m currently supporting Under the Umbrella in Salt Lake City! #librofm

You can use my referral link here 💙: https://libro.fm/referral?rf_code=lfm113294

IMASLOWREADER ohhhh whats this??? i looooove this 4mo
GirlNamedJesse Also, if you‘re a librarian, teacher, bookseller, media/reviewer, or influencer you can get free advanced listening copies every month! 😍 I have so many audiobooks from them thanks to that! https://libro.fm/alcprogram 4mo
ozma.of.oz @GirlNamedJesse Really? That‘s so cool! Did you have to do or write anything to get accepted or did you just give them your Litsy handle? 4mo
GirlNamedJesse @ozma.of.oz I joined from the librarian angle, and just had to provide them with my library name and (possibly) work email (it‘s been a while since I signed up!). I‘m not sure about the specifics for any of the other occupations that may access them, but the info is all on their site and it never hurts to try. 🙂 4mo

Great road trip listen! I‘ve always liked Colin Jost on SNL — even when most people panned him. I loved getting a glimpse into what led him to where he is today as well as some interesting SNL BTS tidbits. I laughed out loud a lot, but the chapter about his mom made me cry. Can‘t wait to see the pictures in the physical book when I get home.

This is packed full of information and includes numerous short personal anecdotes. It also includes a balance of details from different perspectives including students, family, and staff. However, it is written in a very straightforward report style and does not elaborate on any of the personal stories.

Audio duration: 8 hours 14 minutes

If you‘re looking for dirty laundry, lies, and little secrets, find another book to read. If you could use a well-told story of a loving family, hard work and perseverance, and a genuine appreciation for all that has been given and earned, look no further. To me, it is refreshing to have tales of healthy professional and personal relationships! I‘m so glad that I chose it as my new release from Libro.fm. I loved it from beginning to end! #librofm

Megabooks I just put this on hold at the library. 7mo
Suet624 I had no idea Ron Howard wrote a book! 5mo

This is another Educator #ALC choice from Libro.fm that I think might be better in print because of the illustrations. However, even without those, it is a wonderful collection of short biographies of influential and interesting Africans. I recognized some of the names but learned something new about all of the people described.

#Audiobook duration: 3 hours 39 minutes

Daisey Since I have a three day weekend, I figured I might as well keep track of time for #20in4 this weekend as well. Along with my earlier reading and listening today, finishing this brought me to just over 5 hours for today. 7mo

Although as an adult, a few minor details didn‘t quite work for me, this is a great #MiddleGrade story that addresses the Holocaust, the KKK, family history, social media influences, middle school choices, and second chances. Gordon Korman makes all of it work in an interesting and mostly realistic way.

Daisey Also second book completed for #Deweys24HourReadathon while enjoying an afternoon #audiowalk! (edited) 7mo
megnews Sounds good! 7mo
Daisey @megnews It was! Gordan Korman is pretty much an auto buy author for my class library, so I was happy to have the opportunity to listen to this one before adding it to my shelves. 7mo
