Since I spend so much time on public transit, I’ve been listening to a ton of audiobooks whenever I’m traveling. I never really thought I would be much of an audiobook person since I like the act of actually reading so much but I actually love the theatrical aspect of having a book performed and the readers are usually really talented. I check many of them out at the library but I also love using Audible since purchasing audiobooks without the subscription can be pretty pricey. A subscription makes a great easy Christmas present too!
Here are 3 books I finished in the past few weeks:
Robert Galbraith is JK Rowling’s pseudonym she uses to write the Cormoran Strike detective novel series. I got hooked with the first one last year and then read (listened) to the next two back to back. The performer for the audiobook is excellent too which makes it really easy to get sucked into the mystery the each book centers around. Read more about it here.
Bill Bryson’s quintessential novel Notes from a Small Island was published over 30 years ago and The Road to Little Dribbling serves as the follow up. Bryson moved from the United States to Britain in his twenties and has lived in the UK ever since. As with his first novel, The Road to Little Dribbling tells of his travels around the island in his unique, often humorous, and always observant manner. I got a lot of great travel ideas from the book as well as laughed aloud pretty much every other page! Read more about it here.
This was another audiobook I listened to a few weeks ago and it had me hooked from the beginning. It’s a true thriller about a journalist on board a luxury cruise press trip that kept me guessing until the very end! It’s definitely a “beach read” type of book that’s perfect for vacation. Read more about it here.
