Oh, so I finished some books since the last time I participated in IMWAYR. I haven’t really had time to post (even missing the Top Ten Tuesday I was most excited about–ten random facts about me) because I bought a house on July 1, and my life has been pretty hectic since. So this will cover all the books I’ve finished since June 20. I mean, it’s not that big a deal since I only finished one other book in June anyway.
In the past three weeks, I read:
Okay, so I read this a long, long time ago and always remembered the ending and premise but nothing else about it, so when I saw it at the Friends of the Library sale, I grabbed it to reread.
THIS BOOK IS SO TRAUMATIC.
But it’s good and compelling and THAT ENDING. Man.
This was both exactly what I expected and not at all what I expected, so that was impressive.
Listened to the audio. Narration was excellent & it’s a fast listen. Two thumbs up for that as well.
Well, that was adorable.
Listened to the audiobook, which is ace. The narrator is A++.
(3.5 stars, rounding up for the narration)
Read Harder 2016: Listen to an audiobook that has won an Audie Award
I liked the characters and LOVED the dialogue, but this was slow for me and took me forever to read.
I also listened to part of this on audio & Anika Noni Rose is a stellar narrator. Would listen to more read by her.
Reread 7/14/16: So much good foreshadowing, so much pain. Also, this is the book that got me hooked on the series, so I always love when I get to that moment that makes me remember when/why I fell in love.
I actually listened to an audio production of this produced by Blackstone Audio, but I can’t find it on here. I chose it because I thought it was by Alexandre Dumas of Count of Monte Cristo fame, but no, this is Alexandre Dumas the YOUNGER, apparently. Anyway, very dramatic in the best possible way and so so scandalous.
Read Harder 2016: Read a play.
As of today, I’m reading:
I started listening to The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde while I was cleaning today. Pretty hilarious so far, which is good because that’s what I expected and wanted.
And in other news:
I’m going on vacation this week and, you know, have to actually move out of my current place and into my new place as well as do course prep for the fall, which means any posting I do here (and on Twitter, too, probably) will be sporadic at best–if it happens.
Happy reading and enjoy the rest of your July, everyone!
