Reading progress update: I've listened 47 out of 1718 minutes.
A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous 14th Century - Barbara W. Tuchman,Nadia May

I'm not sure how much of this I'll actually absorb via audiobook, but so far I'm really enjoying Nadia May's narration. Perhaps I'd get the same feel off of the page, but it's nice to have a history book narrated in something other than a monotone.

 

Plus the comment for the casual reader to just think of the various currencies as "pieces of money" and not to worry about the details was amusing. As was the introduction to the calendar (varied usages and not always consistent). And the problem of conflating different people into one.

 

I'm not going to be able to spell anything though. I guess that just goes with the mediaeval theme...

THE IMMORTALISTS by CHLOE BENJAMIN
The Immortalists - Chloe Benjamin

Audiobook

I kept putting off requesting this book because I stopped reading family sagas in the early 1980s. But I kept reading the blurb over and over and finally thought why not. This book was so good! It's about 4 brothers and sisters and their life from an encounter with a psychic until their death. I liked that it didn't jump around between them but had four parts for each person. The family itself was so sad. All of the stuff they did or should have done, I just wanted to grab the fictional person by the shoulders and tell them that they matter. I loved the ending. I would definitely recommend this book.

Maggie Hoffman did a great job with the narration - both the men and women, young and old.

Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell (audiobook)
Nineteen Eighty-Four - Simon Prebble,George Orwell

I've been meaning to reread this for a while and I'm glad I finally got around to it.

 

A lot has been said about this book, but I guess for me it represents an interesting way to look at human psychology and the nature of truth and doublethink (the cognitive dissonance is awesome). Really the only thing that is holding me back from giving it five stars is just how silly the whole romance with Julia is. Because the level of insta-love is extremely high. Oh well.

 

Simon Prebble's narration is really good, too.

Thirty Day Boyfriend

by Whitney G.

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

 

 

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks | Audible | iTunes

 

I should've never agreed to this arrangement...

 

Thirty days ago, my boss--Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn't refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a "very generous" severance package. The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I've secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met. I definitely didn't need to think twice about this. I signed my name and started counting down the seconds to when I would never have to deal with his special brand of ass-holery again.

 

I only made it to one minute...

 

We argued the entire four-hour flight to his hometown, failed to make a convincing impression with the welcoming press, and right when I was about to knock that arrogant look off his face in real life? He purposely dropped his bath towel in front of me, distracting me with his nine-inch cock to "show me who the bigger person was" in our relationship. Then he gave me his trademark smirk once again and asked if I wanted to consummate our marriage. Tragically, this is only day one. We still have 29 more days to go...

 

 

 

 

Thirty Day BoyfriendThirty Day Boyfriend by Whitney G.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Emily has had all she take of her job and her boss. Then he proposed a whole new deal. With all that is at stake, can she really last thirty days?

Nicholas fights his attraction to his assistant every day. Following her second anniversary with his company, he asks Emily to do him a favor. If they can get along for one month, maybe that will be all it takes.

The voices provided by Erin Mallon & Zachary Webber were just really good to listen to. I think it was a great combination, and the inflections and tones added to the story. I really hope I get to hear them in another book. This story with these voices was just magic.

This was such a fun and sexy story. There was heat, terrific banter, and a trope that any serious romance reader can get behind. I laughed and enjoyed listening to this book right to the end.
