The Hunger of Crows: A Novel | Richard Chiappone
post image
Mehso-so

Set primarily against the natural beauty of Alaska, this thriller involves a waitress with a bad habit that lands her- and those around her- in big trouble over a stolen photograph. Entertaining- though not always plausible- this is an entertaining listen that is well-performed. Chiappone‘s male characters are more convincing than his female characters & I really think the story deserved an epilogue to tie up some dangling threads! #AudioColoring

Though I didn‘t knock out all my 2021 reading challenges, @Charityann posted the #FairyTaleReading challenge and I couldn‘t resist! This first book in the #DisneyVillainsSeries tells #SnowWhite from the Wicked Queen‘s perspective. She gets some background- as does the Magic Mirror- but not a name! I enjoyed the audio performance & it‘s a quick listen but not as meaty of a retelling as I prefer! Still it‘s fun & I‘ll check out more! #AudioColoring

Charityann Love the coloring page!😊 2w
TorieStorieS @Charityann Thank you!! I‘ve used it before but I couldn‘t resist re-using it for this! Thanks for organizing such a fun challenge! 2w

Love After Love: A Novel | Ingrid Persaud

Thanks to much deserved Litsy-love (thanks for the rave reviews, @AnneCecilie & @Cinfhen ), I decided to dive into this #audiobook for #TrinidadAndTobago- the first country to kick off the #ReadAroundTheWorld challenge! Performed by the author (with no wonder she included a section of an American complimenting the beauty of the Trini accent!), this is a story of the family we make, the love we take (& give) & the secrets we keep. #AudioColoring

Cinfhen Yay!!! Great review and beautiful drawing ❤️ 2w
BookwormM OMG I am still waiting for my book to arrive at library 🤣🤣 2w
TorieStorieS @Cinfhen Thank you!! And thanks for the recommendation- I had a few options for this one but your review made it obvious which one I should read! 🥰 2w
TorieStorieS @BookwormM At least it‘s still early days of the month- I listened to this in two days, so I would say it moves fast once you get started! I hope you like it! 2w

I love Chamberlain! Her latest is impossible to stop listening to! Told in dual timelines, with 2 narrators, the bulk of the book is set in Round Hill, NC. In 2010, Kayla & her daughter move to their new home after a tragedy- only to be inundated with warnings & creepy happenings stem from the past. Ellie narrates the 1965 portion as a Civil Rights volunteer where she loses her innocence to see the truth of her community. Riveting! #AudioColoring

Oh I enjoyed this quick listen comprised of essays of more than 20 years in this Winnipeg veterinarian‘s career. There are sections with the expected dogs, cats & other small animals- but also some more exotic encounters, as the title suggests. There‘s also practical advice (wash your hands, always be kind to the front desk at your vet‘s office) & throughout the love of animals is quite clear! It made my eyes fill, but also giggle! #AudioColoring

The Starless Crown | James Rollins

I‘ve been a fan of Rollins‘ writing for a long time and this action-packed re-entry to epic fantasy makes for a truly wonderful #audiobook experience! The characters all come to life and the magical creatures and twisting plot is breathlessly exciting! I loved Nyx - and all of her adopted brothers! I cried- there are some brutal surprises- but I also can‘t wait for the next installment! A great start to a new series! #AudioColoring

Rather than #AudioColoring, I did #AudioDecorating while listening to this Rumpelstiltskin re-telling! While I have many titles by Meyer in my TBR, this is my actual first experience with her writing-& I absolutely loved it!! Serilda‘s storytelling combined with her golden flecked eyes have always made trouble for her- but her life spins in an entirely new direction when on the Winter Solstice she encounters the Erlking & dares to lie! Loved it!!

Bookzombie All your ornaments are lovely, but I really love the Chip one! 1mo
TorieStorieS @Bookzombie Thank you!! Every year, I treat myself to a new ornament or two from the Disney store! So we have a lot of them on our tree! 1mo

All the Right Mistakes | Laura Jamison

Focused on a group of friends entering their forties & celebrating twenty years of friendship, most have ended up in Wisconsin, but Heather leads a glamorous Silicon Valley life. Now distanced from the group, she ends up blowing up their lives in an unexpected manner. It tests their friendships & brings about changes in their own personal & professional lives. Realistic, but a heavy emphasis on dialogue makes it hard to connect. #AudioColoring

Wow- I really couldn‘t stop listening to this rather crazy story! Set in a small Vermont town, the bulk of the book comes from Wayland Maynard‘s perspective. When he was eight, his father shot himself- but now, as a teenager, Wayland starts to doubt his own memories about the day. Uncovering the note his father left only leads to more secrets coming to light. I gasped out loud with a few of the plot‘s genuinely unexpected turns! #AudioColoring

Texreader That‘s gorgeous! Nice audiocoloring!! I love doing that! 4mo
TorieStorieS @Texreader Thank you so much!! With this one I was also audiocleaning, driving and walking more- any reason to listen! 🤣 4mo
