Springtime Audiobooks!

Hello Audiophiles! Here in the American South, we are experiencing a full-on pollenagedan, where everyone’s car is covered in a fine layer of yellow dust—it’s even in the Corgis’ floof! So I’ve been spending a bit of time inside hiding from the golden onslaught. 

I finished Vol 5 of He Who Fights with Monsters. After I finished it, I felt INCREDIBLY tempted to restart the whole series! Ugh! And how am I supposed to wait until June for Vol 6? #AudiobookNerdProblems

In the spring, I always get the urge to relisten to my favorite fantasy-related novels. I recently bought the entire Chrestomanci series by Diana Wynne Jones, which is perfect on audiobook. It has that wonderful, fantastical, small-town English vibe. Jones possesses the unique ability to make incredibly complex stories seem very straightforward. But once you scratch the surface, you realize how complicated her stories truly are!

Spring is Dylan’s favorite season!

The Candy House by Jennifer Egan

Visit from the Goon Squad received much acclaim when it came out several years ago. Now Jennifer Egan is back with a companion novel, which you can read on its own or as a follow up to Goon Squad. BUT The Candy House received the royal treatment, audiobook wise, and is narrated by a full cast. Ah! Can’t wait!

Time Is a Mother by Ocean Vuong

I just finished listening to Ocean Vuong narrate his latest poetry collection on audio. Ugh, it’s so incredibly beautiful, and there’s nothing like listening to a poet narrate his work. Time Is a Mother was written after Vuong’s mother passed away, and it’s full of longing for the person he loved most.
