Listened to this today and LOVED it - awesomely feminist and gave me fresh food for thought. Jess Zimmerman tackles some hard topics regarding women and women‘s rights within the framework of mythology and monsters.

Shadows in Time: A Novel | Julie McElwain

Pickpick

And the last of the Kendra Donovan series by Julie McElwain - Powered through this entire 5 book series very quickly, loved the characters, their relationship development, the mysteries, and the understated romance. This is a character driven series and each instalment has a strong plot. Loved them all ❤️

I powered through this audiobook! Pure escapist fun! Love the main character, Kendra Donovan. Perfect for fans of Diana Gabaldon and Deanna Raybourn.

I finished this one while #audiopuzzling. Set in 1909 Barcelona, it is as a diverting and interesting espionage sort of mystery. Very enjoyable.

It‘s been a hectic month so I‘m going to catch up on posting my audiobook listens. This was a decent listen with some great points for writers. I feel like I would have enjoyed it more if I had read more of Vonnegut‘s work.

Loved this book! Compulsively listenable. A portal horror with an awesome quirky main character, inventive settings for the real world and the world beyond the portal, and vivid emotional storytelling. Highly recommended

The Queen's Gambit | Walter Tevis

Pickpick

Since TV gives me headaches, I decided to listen to the audiobook instead of watch the Netflix show. So glad I did because this was really good! Excellent story, believable and vibrant characters, made me wish I was better at playing chess but I am a terrible strategist. Highly recommended.

Cortg The show follows the book really well so you‘re not missing much other than the shows costumes which were fantastic. 11mo

Clown in a Cornfield | Adam Cesare

This one was entertaining enough but is basically a YA slasher story. I was hoping for paranormal evil clowns but they weren‘t. Plot heavy and fast paced. Wished for more character development as there could have been a deeper emotional core, but still a decent listen.

This audiobook was more than an audiobook - it was a full on theatrical production. A weird story but I really enjoyed it especially how the author ended up weaving the storylines of the various characters all together. Definitely worth a listen.

Fractured Tide | Leslie Lutz

I fell behind sharing my recent audiobook listend so there will a flurry after this one. I wasn‘t sure what to expect from this one as I‘ve not read this author before, but I loved it! It‘s like a b-movie monster flick fused with a stranded on a desert isle survival story with a time warp twist. Compelling characters and fabulous world building. Highly recommended.

I found this entertaining. Didn‘t rock my world but I was interested to see how it would all turn out. Solid character building, some good tension. TW: bullying scenes that got under my skin.
Stellar narration by the spectacular Bahni Turpin 💕#YAbooks #audiobooks #thriller

I‘ve had this audiobook sitting in my Kobo app for a while and finally decided to give it a go. I started listening on the first and just finished. The writing is lush, the story is good, and I enjoyed the characters. I found myself getting a bit impatient with some of the bad choices, but overall really enjoyable and I will likely give the sequel, Everlasting Rose, a listen

LibrarianRyan I agree with you. I still haven't read Everlasting Rose but that is more because I have a not reading sequels in a timely manner problem. 13mo

Finished reading Dark Archives and it was an excellent fusion of books, history, and science. While the book is about anthropodermic bibliopegy, it does not glamourize or fetishize books bound in human skin. The author takes a close look at how these books came to be, what we can learn from them, and the ethics involved with objects made out of humans. It was highly readable and I highly recommend it. #goodbooks #reading #lovebooksaboutbooks
