Hour 12 challenge: For audiobooks I‘ve recently started using, and loving, Scribd. But I have also gotten audiobooks from my library and off of Hoopla before. The last audiobook I read was Again, But Better. #24in48 @24in48

Getting ready for #24in48. I think I‘m starting with the tagged book, but I honestly have no plan from there on out. 😂 Reading with @CoveredInRust and we are both prepared with snacks and a huge TBR pile each. @24in48

I‘ve been wanting to try and read some Jane Austen, but have no idea which book I should start with. Any recommendations?

Librarybelle My favorite is Pride and Prejudice, which is probably her most well known. Persuasion is my next favorite, and it‘s way different from her other books - more somber, more reflective, and in some ways more mature. 8mo
JackOBotts I love Pride & Prejudice. If you‘re a fan of the movie Clueless, I‘d recommend Emma (in which the movie is based). I reread Emma recently and found myself picturing the Clueless cast, which was helpful. 🤣 8mo
Naj Either Emma or Pride and Prejudice. 8mo

Kenziejo @Librarybelle @JackOBotts @Naj Thanks for the recommendations guys! It looks like I‘ll start with Pride and Prejudice then. ☺️ 8mo
Naj @Kenziejo Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! 8mo
JackOBotts Enjoy! It‘s a truth universally acknowledged that you cant go wrong with Jane Austen. (See what I did there, @Naj & @Librarybelle 😉🤓) 8mo
Librarybelle @JackOBotts 😂 So good! 8mo

Has anyone been using #Scribd? I just started a free trial of it, and I‘m using it to listen to Sadie on audiobook. Really excited for this one, I‘ve heard a lot of good things.

BeaG I use Overdrive and Hoopla. 9mo
Kenziejo @BeaG I‘ve used Hoopla for a while and loved it, but can‘t always find the titles I want. I haven‘t tried Overdrive yet. Is it similar to Hoopla? 9mo
BeaG @Kenziejo Yes, they are similar. I agree, they don't have some titles that I look for, but sometimes Overdrive has it. If neither has ot I usually buy it. I am going to look into Scribd. 9mo

The Year We Fell Down | Sarina Bowen

I bought a kindle, and it was one of the best decisions I‘ve ever made. So much better than reading on my phone. 😍

Also, I got this book for free on Amazon a while back (Thanks to someone on Litsy #blameitonlitsy) and I‘m so happy I did. I generally do not enjoy new adult books. However, I couldn‘t pass up this hockey player romance, and I finally found a new adult book that I loved. #success

I really enjoyed the journey this book took me on. Personally, I don‘t think anyone in here (other than the niece, Sammy) was a likable character and, oddly enough, that was something I liked about it. However, I LOVE this cover. #CoverLove #BoughtItForTheCover

I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

The best medicine for being stuck at home sick is a good book and a fuzzy blanket. And I‘m really enjoying this book so far.

Sunshine Mackenzie is a culinary star living her best life with millions of fans until a hacker reveals all her secrets. 😮 Who did it? Can Mackenzie recover? Does she even want to? 😬

Has anyone read this before? Or another Laura Dave? I think I‘ll be checking out Eight Hundred Grapes next.

Scrolling back through my Litsy posts and noticed I Hate Fairyland Vol 3 was my first read of 2018. 2019s first read was volume 4. That‘s amazing and totally on accident. 😂 Think I should read volume 5 first in 2020? Lol

ju.ca.no Funny coincidence😂 unfortnately number four is the last one though😉 9mo

I didn't love this book. The idea was interesting but the characters were all really underdeveloped and so many aspects of the story didn't make sense. I was constantly waiting for the twist to the story and it never came. Everything was just lackluster.

RaimeyGallant Sounds like a letdown. 1y

Kenziejo @Bostonmomx2 It's the Litsy Markup Postal Book Club. In groups of 4, we each choose a book, read it and write in comments, then send it to the next person in our group. Each month we trade those 4 books until everyone has read it and written comments. At the end we get our books back with everyone's notes. @suvata started it up. It's been fun. 2y

This is a YA X-Men/Hunger Games (ish) story. The villain managed to actually make me uncomfortable at times, which is something that most YA bad guys can't pull off.

I struggled with some of the metaphors used (and there is A LOT of them), because they truly made no sense. The story was fun though. I have had this book on my shelf since 2011 and I finally get to move it over to the read bookcase! 💪🏼

I'm liking this book. Honestly, I am. It's just SO SLOW. Did anyone else feel like this book just went on and on?
