Sunday Snapshot: All the Books

Well, it’s that time of the year again. Everyone’s coming out with their “Best _____ Books of 2015″ and I spend most of the time saying to myself, “I want to read ALL THE BOOKS”, and then I look at all my TBR titles and try not to get too depressed that it’s not that likely to happen. Not that likely to happen? More like an impossibility.

Especially not when I’m madly adding even more titles to my various lists.

On the other hand, it’s fun. Not only that, it’s free fun. Free fun is always a great thing, if you ask me. I can pleasurably while away a couple of hours here and there browsing Best Of … lists, with my library‘s website open in a separate tab. Not that I put everything I find on hold, because we all know what happens when you go down that road:

They all come in at once. It never fails. You don’t hear from the library for ages, and then suddenly one day you get umpteen emails. Your holds have come in! Argh!

So what I do is send the books I want to read but not frantically so to a special Trello list I’ve got set up. There’s a handy little bookmarklet that lets me quickly add the link to the book on my library’s site to my list—so easy!

And now, here’s today’s Snapshot:

Feeling: Well rested – because I slept in today! For the first time in quite a while. My body is feeling very thankful. I definitely needed those extra hours.

Reading: Yesterday Dylan and I started reading Illuminae, by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I’d come across a blog post somewhere where the blogger had said it was a fabulous book to read with your kids—and she is so right! But it’s also a fabulous book to read on your own, and the only thing that’s stopped me from plowing ahead with it on my own (without Dylan knowing, of course) is my workload. If you love novels that are made up of memos, texts, messages, interviews etc., and you like science fiction, this is definitely a novel you should check out.

So much fun!

Illuminae

Listening: November was really busy for me work-wise, and December has shaped up to be the same, so I’ve been doing re-listens to help wind down in the evenings. I finished a re-listen of Reginald Hill’s The Price of Butcher’s Meat, one of my absolute favourite audiobooks. My copy is called A Cure for All Diseases, which is what the book was released as in Canada and the UK (and it makes more sense to me than The Price of Butcher’s Meat—one day I’ll have to look into why the publisher felt it needed a different title in the States).

I am now doing a re-listen of Relic, the first Agent Pendergast book by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child and my favourite of all the Pendergast books.

Writing: Nothing. {insert big sigh here} I’m hoping things will change in January. But I’m just so busy with work right now.

Working: November to January are traditionally the busiest indexing months of the year for me, and this year has proven to be no different. So yes, I am STILL NOT FULLY UNPACKED. I would take a picture of all the boxes I have left but it’s too depressing to even think about.

To add insult to injury, I somehow agreed to work on two chemistry textbooks this month. One is bad enough, but two?! I don’t know how it happened. (Well, okay, actually, I do—I hate to turn down work. It’s been my downfall many a time.)

I had, however, turned down a third chemistry book a few months ago, which would probably have been due this month as well. Thank goodness. The reason I turned that one down is because I actually remembered working on it about three years ago. I might have blogged about it: it was the project that gave me hives. I literally broke out in hives all over my lower jaw!

Creating: {Insert another big sigh here.} I’m hoping I’ll do better in the new year.

So that’s my snapshot for today. How have you all been doing? Do you have any “Best of 2015″ book lists you’d recommend?

Sunday Snapshot: All Moved In (Almost)

It’s been a truly hectic week, but I’m happy to say, I’m almost all moved into the new place! We officially moved on Wednesday, but ran out of elevator time (this is something that can happen when you move from or to a condo). So it’s been a mad dash to get everything out of the old place by today; we’re able to keep using the locker at the old place for a little while longer, thank goodness, and basically all that’s left to be moved is in that locker.

I am nowhere near unpacked, but I LOVE my new room; it feels good to have “my space” like this, and even though we’ve already had an argument, I think there’s a good chance that this new post-separation arrangement will work out. Dylan loves the new place, too, which is nice—he’s definitely all settled in, even though most of his toys are still in boxes. Kids today don’t need too much—a power bar to plug in their laptop and their iPad and they’re quite content.

It’s been hard even thinking about blog posts lately, so I thought I’d start doing more Snapshot posts, but on various days, not just Tuesdays. So here goes!

Time: 1:24 pm (and I was extremely grateful for that extra half hour today; yesterday was a gruelling day)

Feeling: Tired but good

Eating: A ham sub on flat bread. The low-carb diet worked really well for me and I’m at my ideal weight now, so I’m slowly adding more carbs back into my diet.

Drinking: A decaf latte from Second Cup.

Reading:

blackhouse

I haven’t read anything at all this past week, other than browsing Facebook links during the brief snatches of downtime I took. But before that, I did finish up the first two books in Peter May’s Lewis Trilogy series; these are mysteries set in the Isle of Lewis, in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides. I enjoyed both of them, although I did like the first one, The Blackhouse more than the second one, The Lewis Man. Unfortunately, my library still doesn’t have a copy of the final book in the trilogy, The Chessman.

Listening: I did manage to get some listening time in last week, finishing up two of Robert Parker’s Spenser books written by Ace Atkins, Kickback and Cheap Shot. It’s tough to step into the shoes of a grand master like Parker, but I think Atkins does a fairly good job, and it’s great to be able to keep getting my Spencer fix.

Writing: It’s November 1 today—and I don’t know if I’ll be able to do Nanowrimo! It’s been so busy I haven’t even had time to think about my writing, and the next two weeks are so busy, filled with both work deadlines and, of course, unpacking. If I do participate, I will keep working on Sweetness & Dank, so that will make me a Nanowrimo Rebel, since I won’t be starting a new story. I’ll keep you all updated.

Working: Too much. It’s my busy season, and I have so many deadlines coming up. And a surprising number of rush indexes. So November will be all about juggling everything. I’m so thankful for my coworking space, because when I go there to work, I have this laser focus and I’m incredibly productive.

Creating: Nothing! And I don’t foresee doing any arty things anytime this month. But I’ve been looking at recipes, though, and collecting simple ones that I can make easily. So maybe I’ll be able to write a Weekend Cooking post soon.

Looking forward to: Finally getting all unpacked, whenever that may be.

Snapshot: July 16, 2015

Time: 9:25 pm

Feeling: A little sad, because tomorrow’s the last day of my Dark Fantasy writing class. And tired, because for some reason I was wired last night and had trouble falling asleep. Before I started feeling tired, I was actually feeling motivated, so I’m hoping if I get a good night’s sleep tonight I’ll go back to being motivated again!

Reading: I haven’t had much time to read this week. I did read a few pages of Meg Cabot’s Royal Wedding, since I need to post a review at the end of the month for the book’s blog tour, but what with being tired it was hard to get into it.

Listening: 

Armada

My Armada audiobook preorder came in earlier this week! I haven’t had a chance to transfer it over to my iPod, and I’m not going to do it tonight because I’m just way too tired to listen to it without falling asleep. So it will have to wait until the weekend.

Writing: Nothing, but hey, I’ve been in writing classes all this week! But I’ve started daydreaming scenes, which is good. I’m hoping to start a new writing schedule (that I’ll stick to) this weekend. Taking this writing class makes me feel I will finally start finishing my novels, so I want to tap into this motivation for as long as it lasts (hopefully it will last and last and never go away …).

Working: I’ve got one big index and one small index due next week, so in addition to starting a new writing schedule this weekend, I’ll also be working. Sigh.

Looking forward to: My last day of class tomorrow!

Snapshot: July 8, 2015

Feeling: Really really nervous and stressed about next week’s writing class/workshop with Kelley Armstrong. I didn’t realize just how nervous until the university sent me a link to register with the student portal so I can access the class materials—which, I think, consists of all the students’ writing submissions. Including mine. And I realized, OMG, I’m going to get critiqued. By a bunch of people. None of whom I know. Including Kelley Armstrong.

Gulp.

I’m not very good with this stress thing …

Eating: Guess what? I’m back to low-carb! I know I got that brain fog the last time, but it appears I had misread my research and the brain can indeed use ketones as fuel, rather than glucose. So I’m giving low-carb another try. It helps that Ward, the former book-reading demon, has stayed low-carb during my own low-carb ups and downs.

This time around, I’ve been  looking for some good recipes. And I found some! On the weekend, Ward made me these low-carb cream cheese pancakes. So, okay, my food photography isn’t going to stun anyone, but trust me, they tasted much better than they look in the photo. (I have NO clue why the picture looks so blue!) You can click on the link above to see a much much better picture of the pancakes.

These pancakes had a nice sorta pancakey texture and taste. Next time, I’ll leave the cinnamon out (or rather, get Ward to leave it out), as I normally eat pancakes with butter rather than syrup so I prefer just the pancake-like taste. Can you believe it, though? These have NO flour in them!

creamcheesepancakes.jpg

Drinking: I haven’t been drinking this, but Ward has. He bought a package of Counting Sheep Coffee a while back and was really wowed by it. He’s been driving all over the place looking for a store that carries it, but has turned up empty-handed. So he emailed the company, and it sounds like they’ve been having trouble getting their product placed in the big stores.

countingsheep.png

Right now their site shows only the decaf pods with valerian, but he’d bought a package of their ground decaf and he swore by it. He could have his coffee at night (he says it was a nice and strong decaf) and then fall right asleep.

Reading: So I mentioned in my last post that I’ve finally broken out of my reading slump. It only takes that one book (in my case, Brandon Sanderson’s Elantris) and BOOM! you’re back to reading. At least, I am.

When I finished Elantris I went on to Kelley Armstrong’s Visions. I’d read the first book in the Cainsville series, Omens, and thought I should probably get to Visions. Especially since I’m in her Dark Fantasy class next week. She’ll be doing a reading near the end of the week, and I’m hoping it will be from Deceptions, the third book in the series, which won’t be released until mid-August.

visions_.jpg

I also decided to start Brandon Sanderson’s The Way of Kings. It’s over 1,000 pages long, so it means this month I’ll be reading two 1,000+ page books, since I’ll also be starting Atlas Shrugged for #AtlasRAL. Atlas Shrugged weighs in at 1,200 pages. Luckily I’m reading both of these in ebook format; my wrists are thanking me already!

Listening: I just started John Scalzi’s Redshirts, partly because I want to start reading Scalzi (I have several of his books on hold right now at the library) and partly because it’s narrated by Wil Wheaton and I figured this might be a good listen while I’m waiting for my pre-ordered audio of Ernest Cline’s Armada, which should be arriving soon. Just not soon enough.

Writing: Nothing. I’ve been too nervous and stressed, thinking about next week’s class.

Working: I finished up that big index I talked about last week. I have three small ones for the end of this week, but they’re fun ones so I’m not too worried about them. I had four articles due this week, and got three of them off my desk yesterday, so that leaves just one more. I need to clear the decks so I can attend next week’s class without worrying too much about work, although I do have another large index coming in over the next few days.

Photo of the week:

catgrass.jpg

I’m rather proud of this. It’s grass, in case you were wondering.

One of my cats, Hobbes, has been having trouble with hairballs. He’s Siamese, so the hairballs aren’t originating with him. But our other cat, Creeper, is a Snowshoe (the same breed as Grumpy Cat), so he’s on the fluffy side, and Hobbes is the one who’s always cleaning him. Hence the hairballs.

And the strange thing about Hobbes getting hairballs: he can’t be like a normal cat and just hock up the darn thing and be done with it. No, not Hobbes. Instead, he has to spend a few days throwing up and THEN he has to develop an allergic reaction which means he starts scratching his ears and then if I don’t stop him (which is nearly impossible despite anti-histamines and the liberal use of hydrogen peroxide) he develops an infection and has to go on antibiotics.

So I decided to grow some grass for him. Isn’t it just splendid? He’s already been grazing on it.

So that’s been my week! What has yours been like?

Snapshot: June 30, 2015

Time: Hah! I’m being a really really good blogger and writing this at 11:11 pm the night before.

Feeling: Well, I’ve had a glass of wine, so I’m feeling good. Does that count?

Eating: A blade steak, to go with my wine. I think in the US it’s called a flatiron steak?

Drinking: Wine (a Malbec) *cough*

Reading:

bishops wife

I wish! I’m still in a reading slump. But I did dive a little into The Bishop’s Wife and it’s quite intriguing. I’m not very familiar with the Mormon religion, and this promises to be both a good read and a good way to learn more about the Mormon religion.

Listening: I’ve been working and listening to the last few chapters of The Strain. Liking my reread (relisten?) so much, I downloaded the next two books in the trilogy from the library.

Writing: Can I just say, I’m REALLY REALLY NERVOUS about the Dark Fantasy writing class I’ll be attending mid-July, the one that’s taught by Kelley Armstrong? First, there’s the “I already know this” knowledge that I’m probably going to be the oldest person attending the class *sigh*. Second, there’s the fact that it’s a workshop and I’m going to be getting a critique of the first 20+ pages of my dark fantasy WIP Sweetness and Dank (and that’s a working title, in case you were thinking That’s a pretty strange title).

Working: I’m working on indexing a huge (massive!) criminal law text book. Think roughly 1400 pages and you’ll be almost right.

Photo of the week:

Hobbes has been under the weather this week (hairballs from grooming Creeper, I think) but Creeper’s been taking care of him. :)

Snapshot: June 2, 2015

Time: 3:19 pm

Feeling: A little disappointed. I worked late last night, which meant I was late getting to bed, which means I woke up later than I have been recently … which means I didn’t have my morning walk.

The plan is to go for a walk when Dylan’s at his dance class. Only problem is, I’ll be carrying my handbag so I don’t know how pleasurable it will be walking and lugging that thing around with me at the same time …

Eating: Ward recently made this Thai Celery Salad with Peanuts, and when I tasted it, I said, “We absolutely have to add cooked shrimp to this!” (Notice the we? *cough*) So he made it again, only this time he added a bag of cooked shrimp, which he chopped into half-inch pieces.

And I was right. It IS delicious! A perfect summer salad. So if you do want to give the recipe a try, I’d suggest you add shrimp for an entreé-ready dish.

Thai Celery and Shrimp Salad

Drinking: I really could use another coffee. Might make another decaf.

Reading:

misery

Why, Misery, of course, for Care’s #miseryRAL readalong this month! Anyone else joining in on the readalong fun?

Listening:

thefold

This would be a classic example for an article entitled “Why Newsletter Marketing Works”. (Or maybe it’s just an example of how much of a consumer pushover I am …). I just received an email from Audible telling me that Peter Clines’s new book, The Fold, is now available in audio. I didn’t even realize he had a new book out! So of course I had to scoot over and spend last month’s credit on it, because I’d enjoyed his previous book, 14, so much.

Working: I’m a little afraid if I type out everything I’m working on, I’ll immediately crash into overwhelm. On the bright side, aside from three legal articles I need to get done for Thursday, much of what I’m doing has to do with the book marketing for Booktrope and it’s very, very enjoyable. It’s just that there’s SO MUCH TO DO. Argh.

Writing: And then it dawned on me last night, my writing workshop course with Kelley Armstrong starts mid-July which is only six weeks away. I hadn’t realized it was coming up so fast. I need to have the first 20 pages of my dark fantasy ready for workshopping by the end of this month!

Procrastinating: So of course, with all the work I have to do, I spent a pleasurable two hours organizing my Goodreads shelves. It kind of makes me feel productive. Sort of.

The rest of today: I have nearly two more hours to get stuff done, and then it’s off to hip hop class with Dylan. During which I may, or may not, take my walk. I should, because my Instagram is missing its #dailywalk photo. Or so I think.

Snapshot: May 21, 2015

The Victoria Day long weekend really threw me off—I normally write my Snapshot posts on Tuesdays, but when Tuesday came around I thought it was Monday, and on Wednesday I wanted to write about something else so I’m doing my Snapshot post today. Whew. That was a long, and probably unnecessary explanation!

Time: 2:09 pm

Feeling: I wish I could say refreshed, because I’ve been feeling quite refreshed the past few days, but wouldn’t you just know it, since I’m writing a Snapshot post of course today I’m feeling tired.

Eating: I’m about to make my anything-goes veggie soup. So delicious, and with heaps of veggies in it. And parmesan cheese.

Drinking: Water. Lots and lots of water. It’s my latest thing, drinking water, and I’m really liking how it makes me feel. Plus I’m starting to recognize again when I’m thirsty (which is fairly often).

Reading: Still working my way through Good Omens; it’s been mostly in my bag, so I’m not getting through it as fast as I would if it was an “at home” read. It’s good and funny and just a great read for when I’m out and about.

I also started A Game of ThronesI just couldn’t resist the temptation. But I only read the first couple of pages, because I’m just not ready yet to be caught up in a whirl of down-the-rabbit-hole book addiction the series promises to be. I’m witnessing that firsthand anyway: my older son is still working through the series; he started book 4 yesterday.

Listening: I’m almost finished Ready Player One and am wondering WHY it took me so long to get to this book. It’s so good, and Wil Wheaton is perfect narrating as Wade Watts.

ready player one

And some slightly related fun: Dylan downloaded the Akinator app on the weekend, and yesterday we had a such a fun time with it. Akinator is a genie who’s able to guess the character you’re thinking of, simply by asking you a bunch of questions. I was slightly awed by how he managed to guess Wade Watts. I did manage to stump him several times, though, with characters from and authors of some of my favourite, but older, reads. If you want to give it a whirl, here’s the web version. Warning, though: it can be slightly addictive!

Writing: Yes, I’ve been writing! Yay! So okay, it’s only been a few paragraphs to start off a couple of short stories, but I also pulled out my half-completed manuscript for the dark fantasy I’ll be workshopping this summer in Kelley Armstrong’s writing class. I have the next scene in mind, and in the meantime I’m rereading it to get reacquainted with all my characters. It’s progress!

Working: The indexing load has been nice and even, which helps a lot when it comes to my stress levels. I just finished an indexing deadline, and have another one next week, plus an article. In other news, I’ve signed on as the marketing manager for my first author at Booktrope, and it’s been such fun working with her.

Creating: Nothing yet. *sob* So much for being creative every day, right?

Exercising: I’ve been trying my best to keep moving throughout my day, and I’ve also been using my standing desk, too. Tomorrow is my first walking date with my friend; we’re meeting at 8:00 a.m., a time at which I’m usually still sleeping, so wish me luck!

So that’s the Snapshot of this past week. All my focusing on stress reduction seems to be working so far – yay! How has your week been?

Snapshot: May 12, 2015

Time: 10:42 p.m.

Feeling: Tired. And you know, it occurs to me I’ve been saying this in every one of my Snapshot posts lately. Really need to do something about that!

Eating: I’ve decided that this month of small healthy changes should include eating more veggies. Starting today. For lunch I had zucchini and mushroom soup and for dinner I had celery, green pepper and mushrooms (with a chicken burger, no bun). So I think I can say I did pretty well today.

Drinking: A glass of malbec.

Reading: I finished The Fifth Gospel and now Ward is reading it (I’m no longer calling him the book-reading demon because after that first month of being a super reader, he’s not been anywhere near as diligent and in fact can be found most nights watching something on his laptop rather than curled up with a good book. Ah well, it was good while it lasted).

The Fifth Gospel was really good, so now I’m looking for a good novel to follow in its footsteps.

And I am woefully behind on each of the three readalongs I was doing. So far behind, my reading of each of the books has been virtually non-existent.

Listening: I just finished listening to Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography, which was a very fun audiobook. As with most celebrity memoirs in audio where the celebrity is also the narrator, I’m very glad I did this one in audio format.

And today I started listening to this:

jurassic park

A couple of months ago I was looking around for an audio version of Jurassic Park, both on my library’s digital reads site and also at Audible. And it turned out it wasn’t available as an audiobook (other than as a CD set). Then I noticed Audible had a pre-order notice on it—and today I received an email saying it was now available. Of course I just had to get it, since it’s been on my mind for a few months now.

I’m not too thrilled with the narrator, who reads in a manner that’s a little too dramatic for my taste. But the story itself is pulling me in; it’s been a long time since I read this book, so I’m really looking forward to this reread.

Writing: Need I say it? Nothing. But I’m hoping my new mechanical keyboard will make a difference over the coming days.

Working: I’ve got an index due tomorrow, and I’ve finally stepped fully into my new book marketing position—I’ll post more about it later this week. So right now I’m knee deep in developing marketing and social media plans, and it’s so much fun coming up with ideas.

Creating: Nothing, but I’m hoping that will change. When I get a bit more time.

And about that zombie apocalypse: So on our way home from his hip hop classes, I had the following conversation with Dylan:

Dylan: I’ve been learning how to eat slowly.

Me: Oh, that’s good. Why?

Dylan: In case there might potentially be a zombie apocalypse.

Me: Why would you need to eat slowly if there’s a zombie apocalypse?

Dylan: Because there won’t be any stores or anything. So if you get an apple or something, you can’t eat it all at once. You have to make it last.

Me: Ah. I see.

So that’s been my day/week. How has yours been?

Monthly Wrap-up: April 2015 Reads

I hadn’t thought April was a good reading month for me. My mom broke her hip in the middle of the month and I’ve been running around pretty tired ever since. And when I’m tired, I tend to read less. I certainly didn’t think I spent much time reading—not even for the Readathon, where I managed to read only about 200 pages and didn’t finish a single book.

But when I took at look at my reading spreadsheet I was surprised: I read 13 books in April! It turns out audiobooks were what saved me. I’ve been way too tired to feel like reading much in print, but I listened to a lot of audiobooks, especially the first week after my mom’s accident. She was in a hospital out in the suburbs during that week, which meant an hour and fifteen minute commute there and back for me, and I visited her daily, so that added up to a lot of additional listening time.

Here are the books I read in April (not in chronologically-read order):

April reads 1

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie (audiobook) (reread)

Cat Among the Pigeons by Agatha Christie (audiobook) (reread)

Black Coffee by Agatha Christie (audiobook)

Behind the Curtain by Peter Abrahams (paperback)

 April reads 2

Leader of the Pack by David Rosenfelt (audiobook)

One Dog Night by David Rosenfelt (audiobook)

Dog Tags by David Rosenfelt (audiobook)

Unleashed by David Rosenfelt (audiobook)

April reads 3

Pet Sematary by Stephen King (paperback)

Strong Female Protagonist by Brennan Lee Mulligan and Molly Ostertag (trade paperback) (my review here)

Working Stiff by Judy Melinek and T.J. Mitchell (audiobook)

Motive by Jonathan Kellerman (audiobook)

April reads 4

Lumberjanes, issues 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9, by Noelle Stevenson (counting these as one book)

So altogether, eight audiobooks this month! I’m actually finishing up another audiobook right now, but I’ll probably listen to less audiobooks in May.

How did your reading go in April?

Reading Journal: Audiobooks

This has been such a hectic and tiring week, and the only reading I’ve been doing is with audiobooks. I find I turn to stories in audio when I’m feeling tired—not tired enough to sleep, but too tired to focus on a print book or ebook. Mind you, since I often decide to lie in bed when I do this, I sometimes (okay, often) fall asleep while listening. Which leads to a lot of rewinding back to the point in the story that I actually remember.

motive

Ever since about book 15 (Motive is book 30), I’ve always chosen to listen to Jonathan Kellerman’s Alex Delaware series. This series is like a comfort listen for me, and I’m always happy when a new Alex Delaware mystery is released.

Unfortunately, Motive doesn’t make it anywhere near my list of top Kellerman reads (most of those would be books from earlier in the series). And I found one thing about the book particularly disappointing. If you haven’t read the series before, Alex Delaware is a child psychologist who consults on murders with his buddy, homicide detective Milo Sturgis. Part of the reason I’ve enjoyed this series so much is because of Milo. A gruff bear of a man, he’s a gay cop whose fortunes within the LA police department have been like a roller coaster ride.

For some reason, in Motive Alex has suddenly become the expert detective of the duo. There are way too many scenes where it’s Alex who suggests to Milo how to proceed with a particular lead or talk to a recalcitrant witness. It all makes Milo seem like a rather dim-witted cop, which he most certainly isn’t. It’s not like Alex’s suggestions are brilliant insights fueled by his expertise in psychology. They’re suggestions I’d have expected Milo to make. And to make matters worse, all Milo does is nod his head and then implement Alex’s suggestions.

So yes, I wasn’t too impressed with this one.

 rosenfelt

I’m also listening to two Andy Carpenter mysteries. This series by David Rosenfelt are fun reads, often with some nice twists at the end.

This will give you an idea how tired I’ve been—I was in the middle of Leader of the Pack when I got sidetracked by Motive, but when I finished Motive, I forgot I was still in the middle of Leader of the Pack and started on Unleashed instead.

And the really funny thing is, I’d been wondering why I couldn’t remember how things ended for Joey Desimone, the guy Andy Carpenter was trying to get out of jail in Leader of the Pack. Turns out, I couldn’t remember it because I hadn’t finished it!

Have you listened to any good audiobooks lately? I’m always looking for audiobook recommendations!
