Heyo, long time, no write. Life has been crazy hectic, but I miss sitting down to collect my thoughts in one place. I would do an audiobook mega catch-up, but I’ve read so many by now that it would be an endless post that no one would want to sit through. So, here’s a list with a star rating for each one. Since I’m on staycation right now, I hope to start writing more often, to get back in the habit.
The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson–Weird, but mindless mystery. It was a good escape when you’re just sitting in your car: 3/5 stars
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo–Weird in a crazy way. Sounded like someone out of their mind had written it: 1/5 stars
The Wednesday Group by Sylvia True–Not what I thought it would be. I didn’t actually read the description for this. Audible just recommended it and I bought it based on the cover art: 3/5 stars
Dark Places: A Novel by Gillian Flynn–Why hasn’t she written more?: 4/5 stars
Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office by Lois P. Frankel–Not sure I agree with everything said, but good to know one person’s perspective: 3.5/5 stars
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn–Again, Flynn’s formula is good, she needs to write some more stuff for me to read: 4/5
You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero–Another one with a good perspective, but not sure I 100% agree with everything she says: 3/5 stars
Primates of Park Avenue by Wednesday Martin–A very cool perspective. I was sad to learn the author embellished instead of keeping it strictly factual/observational: 4/5 stars
The Fold by Peter Clines–A good old fashioned sci fi/fantasy. The writing was good, and the audiobook narrator was good too; 4.5/5 stars
The Residence by Kate Andersen Brower–This gives you an inside look into the White House through the staff that has served presidents and their families through the decades: 4/5 stars
Secrets She Left Behind by Diane Chamberlain–This was a recommended book from Audible. Not something I would have picked out, a tad formulaic, but a good escape from real life: 3/5 stars
Faith of My Fathers: A Family Memoir by John McCain, Mark Salter–I wanted to read this after reading Hillary Clinton’s book. No matter his attitude or record, McCain went through a lot as POW: 3/5 stars
