Audiobook Monday | June.12.2017

Monday is the day I get my life together … cleaning the house, grocery shopping, you know … all the boring adulting type things. So needless to say … I don’t get a lot of reading time in. Luckily I have a bit of an obsession with audiobooks which happen to be the perfect way to read and adult at the same time! So I have decided to start posting about my audio-reads on Mondays when I can.

So, what am I listening to this Monday?


Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

everything everything by nicola yoonNarrated by: Bahni Turpin, Robbie Daymond

Release Date: September 9, 2015

Duration: 06:44:00

(Goodreads Synopsis):

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.  


Thoughts

I started this book around the early part of this past week. So far it has been a decent read. I feel like I know where this is going but I am interested to find out. I don’t think this is going to be a 5 star read for me because I don’t feel super connected, but the narration is really well done. The main problem I have with this as an audiobook is that apparently this book has several graphics of notebook entries and such which does not translate into audio well. I actually find these breaks in the audio to be distracting and fragmenting to the story. I might pick up the physical book at some point to see the illustrations as they were intended.

I am very interested to see how this book translates into the new movie though. Anyone see it yet? Thoughts?


What are you reading today? I would love to hear your thoughts. Comment below!

      lol yeah it’s fairly short. Typically I find my AB to be around the 11+ hr mark.

      The Wheel of Time audio is fantastic though isn’t it?! I am only on book 2 of the series … so I have a bit of a ways to go 😛

        Agreed! It is fantastic. And this final book is a long time coming for me. Read the first book almost 20 years ago. It’s bittersweet.

        On one hand, I’m looking forward to being able to close that chapter (HA! See what I did there?) At the same time I’m a little sad to be coming to “the end”, even if there aren’t beginnings and endings in the wheel of time 😉

    I also experienced Everything Everything as an audiobook. I thought the narrator did a great job. I was lucky that I had a physical ARC though, because there are a few graphics and some formatting that helped make things a little clearer. I have not seen the film, but I hope to someday.
