    1. Oh no! I really want to start utilizing audiobooks more, maybe I will get the first book on audio so I can listen to it with my husband. I want him to read it, but it would be kind of fun to listen to.

  4. Sideways on a Scooter looks very appealing to me and I always like a memoir set in a warm part of the world (when I'm cold). I look forward to your review.

    1. Yes! It is always a little disorienting to me, but I do enjoy reading about warm places when I am cold.

  10. I'm so glad you liked Daughter of Smoke and Bone! I was surprised how much I liked the sequel once I got into it, because I fear the sophomore slump.

  11. Sideways on a scooter looks good. I'm fascinated by anyuthing to do with India after travelling there when I was 18!

I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
