(Audiobook) The Pact by Jodi Picoult

86 This is probably my 2nd favorite Picoult. It’s well written and gripping. I read the book a while back, but grabbed the audio when I saw it on sale. The audio is fabulous, the narration is perfectly executed. My previous thoughts from early last year:How well do you know your child? How many parents […]

(Audiobook) Teacher Man by Frank McCourt

70 Well, I have now read his 3 memoirs and listened to them. I’m a little sad. I might have to read or listen to one again 😉 I absolutely adore Frank’s work. His stories, his voice, his self-depreciating humor. He is the master of the memoir, in my opinion. The best. Read all 3. […]

(Audiobook) Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman

I guess I should start out by saying that I don’t offend easily. I curse, I make lewd jokes, I’m pretty loose with stuff. I bought this audiobook because I had heard it was pretty good. I heard wrong. I’m sorry, but after 15 minutes of having the authors rant about fat cows, call the […]

(Audiobook) Kabul Beauty School by Deborah Rodriguez

62 This may be more the narrator than the text, but I found parts of this to be haughty and “better than you” – if that makes any sense? HOWEVER — this story is amazing. I knew much of this, but I also learned some new things. Some that have, once again, changed my thoughts […]

(Audio) The Girl Who Stopped Swimming by Joshilyn Jaskson

57 I’ve read and listened to all 3 of Ms. Jackson’s book. Reading wise, this one came in third. But comes in second on audio for me. I really wish they would get the person that read the first one to read her books. I realize she probably likes doing it herself, the author, but […]

Perfect Match [Audio] by Jodi Picoult

36 I originally read this back November 2006. The audio book was on sale so I figured why not… it was well done. The narrator’s voice can be a little grating sometimes, but it did bring the characters to life very well. AND I finally learned how to pronounce the author’s last name properly 🙂 […]

The Deception of the Emerald Ring [Audio] by Lauren Willig

35 This was least favorite of the 3… until the end-ish. I like the modern banter more than the historical parts of this one. The history was “more of the same” for me. I hope the next one spends some more time telling us what’s up in “today’s time” instead of so much time with […]

No Country for Old Men [Audio] by Cormac McCarthy

34 I hadn’t read this one yet, so I grabbed it on audio and I gotta say it was really good! It was something I didn’t think I’d like – set in Texas, kind of manly-written (if that makes sense). I want to read the book now before I see the movie. I loved the […]

(Audio) A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore

16 My book club is reading this book next month. I read it last year, so I decided to get the audio version and listen this time. I almost didn’t make it through the first 15 minutes. The “mood music” and the narrator were a little irritating. But I find that’s true with any new […]

Comfort Me With Apples by Ruth Reichl

14 I really gotta stop listening to this lady. I think this was the last one (right? She put out 3?) cuz she makes me HUNGRY. This was really really good… heartbreaking in places (I was sitting here choking back tears during the part about Mexico – no spoiler there!).. She is such a great […]
