This book definitely leant itself to audiobook format & felt like I was listening to another Bachelorette podcast. (Yes, I consume many of them each week.) I did really enjoy learning the history of dating shows, in general, and how this one came to be. Overall, this was a fun little sneak peek into the Bachelor world, and I may have discovered a new rabbit hole of memoirs to which I‘ll listen.

As a fan of the first couple seasons of the show it was fun to read this soapy book. A basic sort of trashy novel about the lives of the mostly spoiled teens on nyc‘s upper east side. Chuck comes off even creepier in the book if that‘s possible. S tries to return but has a harder time than she thought. Will be B and S reconcile...guess I‘ll have to keep reading. Xoxo. #socialmediafocused #booked2019 #canthelpmyself #guiltypleasure #sobaditsgood

mrp27 This book series was my guilty pleasure a few years ago, loved it! 4mo
Blaire @mrp27 happy to hear you loved it, I was mildly embarrassed to mark it as a pick. 😂🥰😂 4mo

jpellet @4thhouseontheleft Will discussion questions be about the whole book? I haven‘t finished reading yet, so will hold off checking posts so I don‘t accidentally see spoilers if that is the case. Thanks! 5mo
4thhouseontheleft @jpellet I‘m going to try to keep the first few discussion questions based on the first half of the book. 5mo

Amazons Audible Audio Books | Albert N Thomas

Audible is having a nice sale and I‘m looking for some good audio suggestions❣️❣️❣️Perfect timing as #BookFitnessChallenge starts this Friday 🚴‍♀️🧘‍♀️Please share your favorite listens below. Thank You 🙏🏻 😊🎧

Mollyanna I loved the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness on audio. 6mo
Bookwormjillk Ohhhh good to know. 6mo
julesG Harry Potter read by Stephen Fry 6mo
See All 34 Comments
julesG And, my #GuiltyPleasure, sizzling romances by Lauren Blakely. 😁 6mo
Aimeesue The Number One Ladies Détective Agency series, read by Lissette Lecat. Anything read by Stephen Fry or Tim Curry - velvet voices! 6mo
AmyG Insomnia by Stephen King.....brilliantly read by Eli Wallach. 6mo
Bookies Should support indie bookstores. Libro.fm has digital audio that does. 6mo
baes I listen to the Outlander series while I read physical copies of the books. She‘s so good at the different accents and gives each character their own voice. Really brings the books to life. (edited) 6mo
Sharpeipup Anything read by Jim Dale such as 6mo
Susanita I really enjoyed this on audio: 6mo
riversong153 Omg...The Night Circus was excellent on audio! 6mo
Cathythoughts I really like this one on Audible 6mo
youneverarrived Born a Crime, The Choice, Blackout & In Order to Live are all brilliant non-fiction on audio. 6mo
marleed The full cast of Daisy Jones and the Six is the only time I‘ve ever recommended that if someone read the book they also give the audiobook a listen. 6mo
marleed @Sharpeipup I recently listened to the Night Circus read by Jim Dale and had to keep reminding myself I wasn‘t inside a Harry Potter book. I have Jim Dale stereotyped - in a good way! 6mo
Birdsong28 This is really good on audiobook 6mo
Cinfhen Kevin Hart is probably hilarious @Birdsong28 I‘m definitely going to look out for that one ☝🏾 thanks for the suggestion 6mo
Cinfhen I picked up Yes, Please on Hoopla @Susanita and People of the Book is one of my favorite actual books 📖 6mo
Cinfhen I could see Daisy Jones being excellent as an audio choice @marleed 6mo
Birdsong28 @Cinfhen It is such a good book, it's just like listening to him do stand up. I only got it for 99p as it was in Audible's Christmas daily deals one of the best audiobook I have heard. 📚📖 6mo
BarbaraBB I don‘t know if it is available but if so, please get Cassandra at the Wedding. I am soooo sure you‘ll love it (and I can‘t send you my copy as it is part of my NYRB collection) 😃 6mo
Cinfhen You‘re so sweet!! It‘s not available but I‘ll keep my eyes open @BarbaraBB 😘😘 6mo
toofondofbooks Ready Player One narrated by Will Wheaton, The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss, Anything by Neil Gaiman bc he usually does his own narration, The Gentleman Bastard Series, most Stephen King is excellent, anything narrated by Bronson Pinchot, Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Tales, Swan Song by Robert McCammon, Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness 6mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much @toofondofbooks I‘ve been eyeing a few of these books 🤩🤩 6mo
Centique @Bookies not available in my country unfortunately. Many of us on Litsy aren‘t North American. 5mo
LeticiaToraci I usually look for new releases that are cheaper to get for the Audible monthly fee than the current book price and listen the probe. One I liked was a series by Jessica Cluess. 5mo
LeticiaToraci The name of the trilogy was Kingdom on Fire, YA with fantasy and very well written. 5mo
LeticiaToraci Another was a retelling of Frankenstein, The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein. 5mo
Bookies @Centique I bet there‘s a smaller option besides audible though. Hummingbird digital media? Anything? 4mo
Centique @Bookies nope. The biggest of our independent bookstores has a link to Kobo but there‘s a very small selection of audiobooks available. Libby is a good alternative but bookstores don‘t get any benefit of course. 4mo

Remember this book and The Staircase? I knew I had seen a picture many times of Mike and Kathleen dancing. I wonder if his guilty feet have got no rhythm? Is he ever going to dance again? The way he danced with yoooouuuu? 😂😂

I love #carelesswhisper! Strangely enough, I listened to it a lot in college in Durham. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #anglophileapril

emilyhaldi I haven‘t stopped thinking about the Staircase since I watched it!!!!!!!!! 6mo
Cinfhen They looked so happy back then. What a terrible story. 6mo
Megabooks @emilyhaldi I only stopped thinking about it after I both watched The Staircase AND read this book. It brought back the old familiar confusion I had after it happened so I just moved out of my head. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 6mo

Megabooks @Cinfhen it is. I watch My 600 lb Life and the people on it really believe themselves when the say they don‘t eat that much. They erase pizzas and ice cream and focus on the orange they once ate. They forget that they (for real) ate $30 of McDonald‘s at one meal and say they can‘t afford healthy food. My point is that people can make themselves forget things. I wonder if mike pushed back the murder so far he doesn‘t think he actually did it. (edited) 6mo
Megabooks @emilyhaldi @Cinfhen I really can‘t believe I just used My 600 lb Life in an intelligent discussion. #guiltypleasure 🤦🏻‍♀️ 6mo
Cinfhen Ha!!!! And here I was thinking THAT was VERY PROFOUND! 🙌🏻💕😂 6mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I try! Lol 😉😘 6mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I just couldn‘t stop thinking how hard it is to spend $30 at McDonald‘s!! I mean it was 2 double quarter pounder meals, 20 piece nugget, cookies, and a shake! I mean, for f**** sake! I was totally gobsmacked. Then she goes to Dr. Now and says she eats grapes and crackers. As you can tell, I needed to get this out! 6mo
LauraJ @Megabooks I‘m glad you got it out. I‘m very amused by this whole thread. 😸 6mo
Megabooks @LauraJ lol! 😂 I‘m glad. Sometimes I get a little punch-drunk when I‘m up late and finally get the house to myself!! 6mo
Cinfhen Hahaha!!! I might need to watch a few episodes 6mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen It‘s an interesting program. I‘m always rooting for them to lose weight, but sometimes their excuses are just absurd. There was a good one recently where the man lost half his body weight and made peace with his abusive father. Then there‘s this shady therapist that makes me angry because she seems to bring up the worst parts of their lives for ratings. The worst was when Dr. Now verbally berated a mentally unstable woman that made me cry 6mo
Cinfhen Some of those scenarios sound abusive😢I‘m always curious what motivates a person to go on national TV and subject themselves. 6mo
EadieB @Megabooks @Cinfhen Love your discussion about My 600 lb. life! Never saw the show but I‘ll have to check it out! Back to Michael - he definitely is totally in denial about murdering these women. I keep thinking about the control he had over the girls even after he killed their mother! Wicked man! 6mo
Cinfhen He really is a wicked man @EadieB I almost forgot about those poor girls 6mo
Reviewsbylola That brings a whole new level of creepiness to the song. 😆 6mo
Mdargusch Great tie in! 6mo
Megabooks @EadieB @Cinfhen I had temporarily forgotten about Margaret and Martha too! I feel terrible for them!! 😢😢 Cindy - regarding the show, they get a pittance of money, but they do get free medical care as long as they‘re being filmed. (There are follow-up shows where they get loose skin removed.) Many have been turned away from other drs for being too large or have Medicaid that won‘t pay, so they see this as their only option. ☹️ 6mo
Megabooks @Reviewsbylola Right? I always thought this was one of the stranger George Michael songs. 6mo
Megabooks @Mdargusch Thanks! 6mo

32 books for $50? I don‘t have extra money, and I really really don‘t need more books, plus if my parents see the box they‘ll flip. But I‘m so sad and when I get sad I buy books. This is unhealthy and I shouldn‘t do it. Even if they are splendid.......I‘m so torn.

TrishB I do that too! 8mo
