So you won’t believe what crazy thing happened yesterday! I finished a book! I finished an audiobook that was less than 3 hours long in two weeks! *blows on fingertips*
- Binti by Nnedi Okorafor – This turned out to be a fantastic listen! It’s a relatively short book but it’s written beautifully and the world building is rich and handled with such care that it’s actually impressive that the book is as quick as it is. We definitely need more writers like Okorafor!
- Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle Earth by J.R.R Tolkien – We are finishing this one up today! I don’t think we are continuing forward with any other Tolkien book after this, at least for some time. I think we all need a break after 9 straight books.
- The Color Purple by Alice Walker – I started this one a whim while at work yesterday since I needed something that wasn’t sci-fi or fantasy…and I don’t have a ton of those. I tried to read this a year ago but just wasn’t in the right mood for a hard-hitting novel.
