Audiobooks I've Listened to in the Past 4 Months 🎧🎧
It's been too long since I've made an audiobook list!
- •In the Heart of the Sea - Nathaniel PhilbrickFascinating and speedy. Was delectable to learn about Nantucket whaling in the 1800s. The true story on which Moby Dick was based.
- •Slouching Towards Bethlehem - Joan DidionThe first few stories were great, and then Diane Keaton got lazy and shat all over the sentences. This was my first Didion, and I'm trying not to judge her based on Keaton's poor performance.
- •Come As You Are - Emily NagoskiI've already listed about this book but I think it's one of the most important books for women out there. Charming and positive and informative.
- •Something Wicked This Way Comes - Ray BradburyCould honestly not get through it, which shocked me. It's eerie, and visual, and there are some stunning sentences, yet somehow it was a slog and I quit halfway through.
- •The Cuckoo's Calling - Robert GalbraithAlready listed about this one, too. The first of a crime series written by JK Rowling. Very good and delivers on the premise.
- •Smarter Faster Better - Charles DuhiggI LOVED his previous book, The Power of Habit, but this felt lazy.
- •Ready Player One - Ernest ClineSuper delightful. Not deep, but fun af and moves like the wind.
- •Quiet - Susan CainReally enlightening. Loved it almost as much as Come As You Are. So important and affirming.
- •Walden - Henry ThoreauNope. Quit after two hours. This was torture. AND I LIVE IN THE WOODS.
- •Persuasion - Jane AustenI have loved this book for years, and my adoration was only enhanced by Juliet Stevenson's delivery. She's a phenomenal performer. Download anything she does. I just got her version of Middlemarch!
