It‘s unusual to read a historical fiction set in ancient Mesopotamia, and I appreciated experiencing that culture. Jomar & Zefa are a brother & sister sent to the city of Ur to find a new life when their family is facing starvation on their farm. Jomar is apprenticed to a goldsmith, and Zefa tries to find her way as a musician.

*I received this #MiddleGrade #audiobook through the #Librofm Educator #ALC program.
Audio duration: 3 hours 34 minutes

I had no idea what this book was about when I picked it up, but somehow got it into my head that it was a memoir. Listening to the #audiobook I quickly became confused because I thought it was a memoir written by a man and read by him. Then it was a female narrator who started talking about going to an all girls school and I was like, "WTF?" ? ⤵️

monkeygirlsmama ⤴️At this point I realized I was a complete dolt, and decided to settle in for whatever ride I was already started on. And... I loved it! If you're looking for a quick read that's crazy and will still make you smile, check out NOTHING TO SEE HERE! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 2d

For those of you, who've been waiting for over a decade for this: it's worth the wait.

Story picks up shortly after where Shades of Grey ended. I don't want to accidentally spoil anything. So 🤐

Jasper Fforde reads the information preceding each chapter. #audiobook

Deblovestoread Listening to it now 😁 3d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag I‘m hanging out for the third Nursery Crimes book… Glad to see he‘s back to publishing more frequently - it gives me hope! 2d

thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Booksblanketsandahotbeverage, I saw him on his Early Riser book tour and he did promise that it was coming! He‘s just very strict with himself and commits fully to one writing project at a time - so if that derails (he had writers block with Early Riser) then everything gets pushed back. 2d
julesG @thegirlwiththelibrarybag that's a good strategy, concentrating on one project at a time. Wish I could do that. 😁 2d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @julesG, one writing project at a time - I suspect he may have gotten a little distracted by photography and other endeavours. 2d
julesG @thegirlwiththelibrarybag It's all part of the creative process. 😉 2d
Booksblanketsandahotbeverage @thegirlwiththelibrarybag thanks! That makes sense and I admire his dedication. 2d

Esther is distressed and I am keeping my eye on her tonight. She is aging fast- she‘ll be 14 in July. Listening to the audiobook tagged for book club. Not my favorite narration so far. #dogsoflistsy #audiobook

Velvetfur Aaww poor Esther 🩷 I'm sure she'll be less distressed with her Mum looking after her 🩷 4d
Darklunarose Poor ester. I hope she will be ok. 3d

dabbe @BkClubCare 🤩🐾🤩 3d
Darklunarose @BkClubCare sometimes that is what we must keep tight hold of. And our pets are fur babies. They mean so much to us. 3d

Theo nods as he reaches down to help me—her—to her feet. “And if we don‘t get them to work for our cause?”
She laughs. “Then it‘s time for this dimension to die.”

Gravitated to the colorful cover. Stuck around for the good mystery and cleverly disguised twists.

Paul says, “Will you give me a chance, Marguerite?”
I feel the smile spreading over my face, lighting me up inside. “Yeah,” I whisper as I take his hand. “Oh, yeah.”

There are books that translate well to #audiobook formatting, and then there are books that translate PHENOMENALLY to audiobook formatting. This one falls solidly into the latter category! In fact, I'd wager that in this instance the audiobook is even better than the print copy. The narration and sound editing are fire and make it seem like you're really listening to a podcast. Amazing audio concept for this remarkably entertaining story! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Sace Looks like I‘m about to burn an audible credit. 😆 5d
monkeygirlsmama @Sace Do it! Do it! 😂 5d
