So it wasn't it until i got my new job (which i've been at for a year and a half) that I really got into audiobooks and realized how convenient they are for listening to at work , since everyone at my current job seems to use headphones to listen to what they'd like ... So my answer is at work ... and long car drives.

But I try not to listen to anything super intense that requires much focus.

Speaking of audiobooks. I'm in need of more suggestions Anyone have any suggestions? Some of the ones recently that I've enjoyed include: I want to be where the normal people are (Rachel Bloom), Bossypants (Tina Fey), Yes, Please (Amy Poehler), Just Mercy (Bryan Stevenson), some by Rachel Hollis... just to give you an idea of genre that seems to work for me to listen to at work

See You in The Cosmos by Jack Cheng. The book itself is about a 11 year old boy making a recording to be sent to Mars so the audiobook suits very much some friends also mentioned that Daisy Jones and the Six is more enjoyable in audibook (I haven't listened to it) since the book is in interview format with multiple characters.

Oh, and Karamo's memoir since he's also the narrator.

Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes. I listened to it years ago when I had a killer commute, and still rave about it. She narrates it herself and it's amazing.

I also very much enjoyed The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

so I started a new book. I'm still on the fence about it simply because its written like a 12 year old boy and its good and interesting but has its moments. Anyone have thoughts on The Knife of Letting Go by Patrick Ness? Does it get really really good?

I haven't read it. Somehow I'm not really interested with dystopian fantasy anymore (but the only one I've read was The Hunger Games and it was... nine years ago? ) but some of my mutuals on Twitter enjoyed it.

How's your reading challenge guys? I'm stuck. I've picked Magnus Chase for the >450 pages and The Song of Achilles for >10 years writing but the mood is nowhere to be found

I read the first book in this series, and I enjoyed it. I don't really remember why I didn't read any more of the series, except I think I found the book a little dark for me at the time. I should pick them back up and see how it goes.

I did find the stream of consciousness/ reading of the character's thoughts a little off putting at first, but I think I got used to it eventually.

I like dystopian and such but not always. This one was a little tough to get into.

I haven't looked closely at my challenge for here, but I am on book 47 for the year so that is an accomplishment.

I think that was what made it hard to read for me was the stream of consciousness. I finally finished it but it took forever.

I felt like I wasn't making progress on reading because I've missed several months' "read a book a month" goal but I've read 9 and I think that's more than I read all of last year. So feeling pretty good! also finished two books in the last week

What are you all doing for a book in a format or genre outside your comfort zone?

I feel that everything is both in and out of my comfort zone

okay totally months and months later but yay for reading more than last year.


I'm way ahead on books for the year read, but I'm reading one that I'm in a weird love hate with. Its a good book, but I also am so irritated and I can't tell if its the character or the writing style. but I'm also 58% done and it has been a quick read.
