This is my #BOTM choice. I read the first couple of chapters and a synopsis, it sounds really great. What did you guys choose?
Also, my Litsy buddy @BookwormAHN told me about the new BFF program that's now live at BOTM and you should check it out....lots of goodies 🥰

Billy Jensen's audio book is fucking brilliant! The story, his voice and his writing skills make this a hit🤙

🐝 Shades of blue...all
🐝 Mystery/Thriller
🐝 Wow, tough one. I'd say crochet/knitting, bird watching and painting/making birdhouses.
🐝 Chocolate!
🐝 Game of Thrones and there is no way I can pick one favorite movie...haha. So I'll say The Hangover, A Star is Born and most of the Harry Potter Series.
🐝 I'll have to get back to you...sorry. 😬

I listened to this book going into work, then on my way home. Loved the narrator, Matthew Blaney. Listening to his beautiful Irish accent was the best ending to my days at work!
If you listen to one true, nonfiction audio book this year, please make sure it's this one 🤓
You will not be disappointed. The trouble in Ireland must never be forgotten and Patrick Keefe's writing is outstanding!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I am home sick with strep throat....again. That makes twice in 6 months....argh!
So what's the best way to spend a rainy, sick day? Reading of course! This book is just so great. The scope of Adam Higginbotham's research, many years of dedication to get the true story correct and his amazing writing skills make this book a number one hit! The story (and surrounding story) needed to be told.
Thank you again @StellarDoc 🤓😘🥰
