“I’m no expert, but I remember reading somewhere, every time you retrieve a memory, that act of retrieval, it corrupts the memory a little bit. Maybe changes it a little.” – The Glass Hotel, Emily St. John Mandel

At 20+ hours this audiobook was at times killing me: as in I wanted to know what the heck was going to happen and when I’d look at how much time I had left it never seemed to end! I called my friend who read it and demanded spoilers, because I couldn’t take it anymore to which she lovingly declined. Thank goodness 😉
on a side note: while cooped up at home these next few weeks why not try an audiobook?! They certainly make doing chores more interesting.
When I can’t focus and my reading mojo is suffering: I give audiobooks a whirl! I will admit I never gave audiobooks a second thought until last year, and now have no idea why.
Audiobooks have been great for road trips, while running errands, and they have been my savior when I am forced to do laundry (I hate this chore with a passion). SNR Jr. and I have daily early morning audiobook sessions; her first morning bottle we cuddle in our rocking chair and listen to a chapter of whatever I am listening to at the moment.
If you’ve read my reviews before you will know how I feel about narrators: they can make or break a book! And, if you are needing some recommendations check out my Libro.fm Top Picks Playlist.Happy Listening! XO

This was my first audiobook with Libro.fm and I am super thankful I was able to listen to it as part of their Influencer ALC program (Audiobook Listening Copies). I ate it up and finished in less than 3 days: which is no surprise as Christina Lauren romances are my jam.
This love story reminds me of when I was a tween playing with my Barbie & Ken dolls. After watching General Hospital with my mom (what is Sonny taking to look the same 20 yrs later) I would think up the most outlandish storylines of how Ken had to win over Barbie. Twice in a Blue Moon was reminiscent of those times: a bit over the top like the Pretty Woman love story but you still watch it, love it, and root for them every time.Read More »
