Hey there folks! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Just wanted to share a few audio books I've listened to lately.
A few months ago I listened to The Good Girl by Mary Kubica. It was read by Johnny Heller who I am sooo in love with! So I couldn't wait to pick up Kubica's new one Don't You Cry on audio. Unfortunately this one was read by Kirby Heyborne. I didn't like his voice, but the story was really good.
A lady named Esther disappears one weekend leaving her roommate Quinn to investigate her disappearance. This suspense thriller kept me driving around and running errands forever trying to help Quinn solve the mystery! My favorite part was how it ended. I won't say it had a happy or sad ending, but the story ended well...which is a hard thing to come by these days.
Over the holidays I borrowed a few books from one of my relatives. She ended up sending me home with all three books in the Divergent series. That was also right around the time that I took up crochet. So I gave the books back to her and picked up the audio books at the library. It is so relaxing to listen to the disk on my computer and work on my crochet.
Compared to the Hunger Games series, this one is basically an end of the world dystopian society broken up into five factions and takes place in Chicago. The main character is Beatrice (God bless the author for coming up with a good name). She has to try to survive living in her new faction and being away from her family. The book is read by Emma Galvin and I just adore her voice. Good thing because I have two more books to listen to...Insurgent and Allegiant.
This last one....oh my goodness y'all have to get this one! I heard about it on another blog and I'm so glad I checked it out. I had to wait on hold for it at the library for about a month and it was worth the wait. I listened to this one all weekend!
In The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware, Lo Blacklock is invited to go on the maiden voyage of The Aurora. As they venture out into the North Sea, Lo thinks that she sees someone get thrown overboard. Yes, she had been drinking that night. Why won't anyone believe her?
With a nod to Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes, Ware has created a modern day suspense thriller that will leave you gasping for air!
