My Discovery of Audio Books

Hey Guys! I know it has been awhile since I've been on the blogosphere and that's because I've been so busy with school and family drama. I haven't had much time for pleasure reading which is really upsetting because it's my favorite thing to do. Recently though, I have discovered the beauty of the audio book.

Before making the awesome discovery, I thought of the audio book as a way of "reading" for lazy people and I'd never thought about listening to a book myself. However, now that I'm so dreadfully busy with school, I have to multi-task many things and the audiobook has become my friend.

I use Audible and started using them because they have this thing where you get a 30-day free trial and one free audio book. The book I chose to get was Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo and I'm loving it so far. I'm only a few chapters in, but listening to it makes me feel so much more immersed in the novel and it's a much more efficient way for me to read now.

I just recently bought another audiobook, Dracula, so that I could listen to it while also annotating the actual book for my English class and it makes the homework so much easier and more fun to do. I'm serious guys, you need Audible in your life. Because of this new discovery, I'm going to review the audio books I've purchased and will try to review books that way.

Thanks to all of my lovely followers for staying with me this long.

  1. That's great! I find that there are only certain types of books I can listen to in audio format (HP, Doctor Who, Mortal Instruments, etc.) mostly because of who is reading. I need to like the voice and they can't read it too slow! I'm glad, though, that you were able to find a way to still do what you love with your busy schedule :)
    Happy Listening-to-audio books!
