I hit a wall with audiobooks, not able to concentrate. I needed a very light read and something to just carry me along for the ride, and this did it for me.

I love this series so far, but this (book 6, I think) is my favorite.

“I remember years ago a guy I knew told me that people going to England find exactly what they are looking for. I said I‘d go looking for the England of English literature, and he nodded and said, ‘It‘s there.‘ Maybe it is, and maybe it isn‘t. One thing‘s for sure: it‘s here. The blessed man who sold me all my books died a few months ago... If you happen to pass 84 Charing Cross Rd, kiss it for me? I owe it so much.”

I love books about books, and this one has been my bedtime read. Short essays that just add to my TBR, like I need that, but the rest of you readers understand, I‘m guessing.

Twisty and gripping. I loved the mystery, but TMI in parts and the really tragic event that this story centers on was so painful and horrific and hit a little too close to home. Definitely read up a bit on it before diving in. Pick rating because it certainly kept me listening despite my reservations.

Quintessential Wodehouse. So funny. And Jonathan Cecil is unbeatable as a narrator.

This book made me want to read Scripture all night in a cathedral, memorize all the poetry, and eat all the confectionary delights of a proper English tea.

First time reading this sweet book. ❤️ I really liked the narrator for this specific edition but I was so disappointed in the editing of it. Too many repeated lines that should have been cut in editing.

Americanah | Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Mehso-so

Mixed on this one and I‘m not sure why. Adichie is a talented writer, the narrator was great, and I feel like I learned so much, but there were a few times where I just didn‘t care anymore, especially toward the end.

llawela Agree. Loved it, but maybe needed a heavier handed editor? 3mo
Mixele Yes,it was the same for me. I had a hard time getting through it. Too many tangents. Irl I‘d probably be friends with Ifemelu but in the story I didn‘t really care so much, and just when I did care, some blog post or side story draws my interest away. 2mo

Lysa‘s book Made to Crave was really helpful for me, and I listened to this because I knew she‘d walked a long, hard road the last few years and I wanted to hear her journey through it. As always, this book is saturated in Scripture and is written straight from the heart.

My copy has seen better days! The more I read Dorothy Sayers, the more I love her. These aren‘t your run-of-the-mill mysteries. Gaudy Night gives you so much to think about that a reread would undoubtedly be worthwhile.

Since I am not a quick reader, it feels extra sweet to finish a long classic. Even better the second time around. My poor copy is destined for the trash bin after our #wellreadmom #bookclub meeting because it is in about 10 pieces by this point. ❤️
