This #audiobook is part of the Dr. Silkstone series but includes some historical figures: Franz Joseph Haydn, Dr. John Hunter, Charles Byrne (“the Irish Giant”). It has some gruesome passages about anatomists who would buy corpses from grave robbers for dissection and study in the late 1700‘s. It‘s quite an intro to the medical world in England in that time period. Simon Vance does a great job reading it.

Days by Moonlight | Andre Alexis

Pickpick

Alfred Homer & Professor Bruno on a weeklong bizarre odyssey across an alternate southern Ontario in search of a poet. Readers, this Danté-esque travelogue is all about the philosophical journey, not the destination. Satirical humour addresses love, grief, & social commentary about racism & Canadian identity. I read it in print first, then got even more out of the writing by listening to Alexis read his own #audiobook. #Black #CanadianAuthor

Lindy “Days by Moonlight is not a work of realism. It‘s not a work that uses the imagination to show the real, but one that uses the real to show the imagination.” —Alexis 3h

This #audiobook on #Overdrive is a glimpse into the lives of the super rich about 100 years ago.

The best part about this book is the side characters, who were great. Also, there is decent bisexuality rep in the main character. It is a romance and does include a fake relationship. It was cute, but the naivety of the main character and the shitty choices she made stopped this from being a great book. Read as an #audiobook via #scribd

I finished this #audiobook this morning and quite enjoyed it. Much like The Night Sister I couldn't necessarily guess the ending though I didn't find this as creepy.
Quite enjoyed it, will be looking in to more McMahon.

Been in a bit of a slump with physical reading at the minute hopefully a bit of crochet with an audiobook can get me back into it so I can get back into clash of kings #audiocrochet #crochet #audiobook

rretzler I‘m knitting a hat as I listen to an audiobook currently! 20h
Boooooks @rretzler Oooh that sounds good I‘ve tried knitting before but I‘m rubbish at it 😂 20h
laurenslibrary Cute! 18h
rretzler I‘m the same with crochet! I keep learning and then forgetting. I think it probably depends on what you‘ve learned first. 18h

This weekend is the #24B4Monday #Readathon, and I'm all in! Shooting for the full 24 hours. I'm reading a lot of books at once right now, so I'd like to finish a few I'm reading right now (on the left) and replace the #audiobook I'll finish today with 2 new audiobook starts (on the right). Slaughterhouse-Five will be my official banned book for the theme, but I might read more.

TheReadingMermaid Those all look like awesome reads! And you got this girl! 1d
Clwojick 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 You‘ve got this! 1d
Andrew65 Good luck with getting to the 24 hours, igniting behind you. 😊👍 22h

The main thing that kept me from bailing was telling myself that the unlikely coincidences & illogical behaviour by supposedly deadly teens is because they are being manipulated by Hindu gods. I don‘t know if my theory is correct because this is only the first in a #YA fantasy trilogy. A rich setting & Sneha Mathan‘s excellent #audiobook narration also pulled me through the uneven pacing & the enemies making goo goo eyes at each other.
