My goal last year my goal was 40 so I upped my goal just a little bit this year because I know I‘m going to be a tad bit busy going into my last semester of grad school, hopefully moving, getting a new job, etc. Excited to see what this year is made of!

Finals are over and I finally have gotten the chance to start my August #BOTM. I‘m really enjoying the writing so far and love how weird of a character Grace is. I am excited to read more but sadly have to go to sleep

I got a chance to finish this book while working on some reports yesterday. It was a recommendation from my roommate who is a huge bachelorette/bachelor fan. It was a great listen just waiting for the sequel to get off the holds list

In my final year of my masters program and I can‘t wait until the only books on my TBR don‘t include textbooks or articles for a class. As a result I have been hitting audiobooks pretty hard lately. Heading to Austin this weekend for a little break from school and hope to hit a bookstore!

I really enjoyed learning more about Queen Elizabeth the second. She is inspiring and has led such an interesting life. I was inspired and truly fascinated about certain details of her life

I originally chose this because for the Read Harder challenge but it was significantly better then I could have hoped for. I was rooting for Nina the entire way and just wanted her to live even though the title already tells you otherwise. This was a slight mistake to listen to at work because I had to stop every so often to stop from bursting into tears but it was just so heartfelt. #readharderchallenge

So this book!!!!! How frickin amazing!! I have been having a really tough time since moving. Adding this to starting classes up again and starting a new job that I don‘t really know if I like it results in me being lucky to complete my homework. I got the chance to listen to this while I was mostly at work but yeah it‘s been rough. This book was truly amazing and it made my life a tad better.

TheBookKeepers That‘s a lot of transitions at one time! Hang in there dear! 💝 10mo

So I have been in a serious rut and have been super homesick. I have been down south for a little over a year now for school and I am seriously missing everything to do with Ohio. This includes my best friend and I watching hockey and just loving the ice. This book was super cute and kind of helped me both with my reading rut and missing home. Also, can‘t wait for hockey season and this puppy is super cute.

This book was wonderful! Annie Spence is the librarian I have always wanted to meet and talk with. She writes to books like they are your friend, ex, crazy cousin, etc. It added some books on my list while also giving me a laugh. I would highly recommend it especially on audio!

I just finished this book for my book club at work and wow. Randy Pausch was an incredible man, he had an outlook on life that is inspiring and gives me hope that no matter the stage in life things will be okay and that it is important to always ask for dreams are possible.

WhatThePuck Or Outlander. 😊 12mo
EadieB @sb3626 Check out Hoopla they have some good audios. 12mo
TheBookKeepers Fantastic historical fiction! Good narrators! 12mo
sb3626 @EadieB thank you, I have been meaning to check that out!! 12mo
sb3626 @TheBookKeepers was this good on Audio? I loved Beartown and have heard wonderful things about A Man Called Ove! 12mo
sb3626 @WhatThePuck oooo outlander would be really interesting on audio! I read the first but I need to get the second! 12mo
WhatThePuck @sb3626 I love the series, but I spend so.much.time. reading them. I decided to try audiobooks and the 4th book was my 1st audiobook. I love the different accents and learning exactly how Gaelic should sound. 🤣 Plus I fly thru them when I listen to them! 12mo
TheBookKeepers @sb3626 Yes I listen to A Man Called Ove on audio and loved it! I thought the narrator did a wonderful job bringing Ove‘s character to life! It was my first Fredrik Backman book and love his writing! I can give more audio recs too if you need more! I try to listen to 1/month! 12mo
sb3626 @TheBookKeepers yeah! I will always appreciate more recommendations. I am in the process of moving and long drives ahead of me so it‘s been nice listening to more audiobooks. 12mo
TheBookKeepers This one has a full cast of narrators and I found it very interesting! Fiction but tells the stories of different peoples lives that live in Alaska 12mo
TheBookKeepers If your into poetry, LOVED this one. But subject matter is pretty intense, so little warning there. Beautiful stuff and read by the author which I like :) 12mo
TheBookKeepers One of the few nonfiction books that I‘ve read and adored! It‘s one of my favorite books! Also read by the author ❤️ 12mo
TheBookKeepers A funny light read, and if u enjoy Anna Kendrick you will like this! She does the narration as well! 12mo
TheBookKeepers Set in WWII bounces between the story of a blind French girl living in Paris and a young boy who joins Hitlers army (edited) 12mo
TheBookKeepers Also set in WWII, if you haven‘t read this yet it‘s a must for everyone in my opinion! Told from deaths perspective and simply beautiful! 12mo
TheBookKeepers This was recommended to me as an audio instead of print bc the narrators were so good! And I agree! 12mo
TheBookKeepers Ok last one (sorry for blowing up ur feed lol!!). These are all my favorite audios! This one was an exciting tale and I loved the narrator as much as the story! 12mo

I‘m not going to lie, I just now noticed the lobster on the cover. It was only after I finished it. This was a cute, kind of weird book about a girl named Ruth and her growing up with a weird family life. Having been raised by the woman next door and a father who would never really talk with her. I‘m still unsure what I think of this book

Sometimes it‘s nice to have a cutesy read. I have been getting things set up to start packing my apartment this past week and I haven‘t had much time to read. This was a great and easy read about a girl named Addison who tries her best to be the perfect child that her parents expect her to be. Insert Bryce and you have a fun experience her freshman year of college.

Okay if you don‘t know who Retta is than you have not watched one of my favorite shows of all time, “Parks and Recreation” where she killed it every episode as Donna. This memoir was all that I could have hoped for, it was incredibly hilarious and just honest. Definitely a great read!

So I gave this book 100 pages before one scene made me mad enough to through it to the other side of the couch and call it quits. It‘s gonna remain as far away from me as possible until it gets returned.

This was a two sitting book for me and it probably would have only been one except I was reading it with my friend. I have so much emotions that have come as a result of this book. All I know is that it is one of my all time favorite books. Kristin Hannah is such a wonderful writer that she could write about how paint dries and I would read it.

Finally got the chance to finish this. Between being so busy and just never truly finding anything to draw me in I was not completely impressed with it. Don‘t get me wrong Anna is amazing and it was interesting to learn about her but overall just not my cup of tea. I am a tad late in finishing my #BOTMbinge
