Fantastic Audiobooks for You to Read!

There is a bit of a debate amongst readers about whether audiobooks actually count as reading. In my opinion, they absolutely do! You are listening to the book, yes, but you are still receiving and retaining the story or information just as you would with a physical book. I didn’t start getting into audiobooks until a few years ago, and now they comprise a large portion of my reading each year!

If you are new to audiobooks, or are just looking for new ones to listen to, then this list is a good place to start! These are some of my favorite audiobooks that I have ever read:

Yearly Wrap-Up: 2020

I think we can all say that 2020 was a very strange and eventful year, even with us quarantining for a vast majority of it. I started grad school for library science this year, though I actually withdrew from my grad school program a few months later (because it was focusing on school librarianship, and I want to pursue public librarianship).

Mini-Reviews // First Half of August

Old books and coffee cup in front of wooden wall. With copy space

This year I started writing mini-reviews over on my Instagram whenever I finish a book. It has been a really great way of remembering more about my thoughts on a book and why I gave it the star rating I did. So, I thought it would be good practice to corral those mini-reviews into one place twice a month so that all of you can take a peek at what I’ve been reading and see my thoughts on each book.
