Listening Library [1]


You’ve all heard my recent obsession with my Libby app — the app that has saved my Goodreads reading goals for the last couple of years. Not only does it enable me to read books I wouldn’t otherwise seek out, but it also saves me a few bucks by reading/listening to books before I choose to buy them. Granted, my library only stocks a few of the recent releases, but I still feel giddy when I see an audiobook I want to listen to.

Today, I thought I’d share with you some of the books I’ve downloaded recently. Let me know if you’ve read any of these.

Eloquent Rage by Brittney Cooper | The World As It Is by Ben Rhodes | The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe by Ally Condie | My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh

Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower by Brittney Cooper explores why “angry black women” should remain angry.

The World As It Is: Inside the Obama White House by Ben Rhodes is an account of Ben Rhodes’ role in the Obama administration as his writer.

The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe by Ally Condie is a story of an avenging heroine on the quest for gold and well, revenge.

My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh tells the story of a young woman in the new millennium currently suffering from an emotional and mental malady of sorts. With the company of a psychiatrist, she goes into hibernation mode in an effort to cure herself.

Red, White, & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston | The Night Diary by Veera Hiranandani | The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston needs no further introduction. I’ve read this at least 3 times already but I wanted to see what the audio is like so I borrowed it.

The Night Diary by Veera Hirannandani is a story about a 12-year old refugee and her family escaping the escalating violence in Pakistan brought on by India’s separation from Britain.

The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary. Tells the story about roommates who share the same flat on schedule, and who don’t cross paths but somehow are destined to be together. Curiouser and curiouser.

I’m not gonna lie, they all sound good. I wouldn’t be surprised if you find a physical copy or two of these on one of my Hoarders posts in the future.
