In true me fashion I started a Scribd free trail last month and forgot to cancel it. So, I’ve ended up paying for another months subscription and I plan on using it to its fullest extent before cancelling. I plan on doing this by listening to 5 audiobooks in a very short amount of time! I wanted to share them with you. Here are the 5 audiobooks I want to read soon.
Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey
Georgette Castle’s family runs the best home renovation business in town, but she picked balloons instead of blueprints and they haven’t taken her seriously since. Frankly, she’s over it. Georgie loves planning children’s birthday parties and making people laugh, just not at her own expense. She’s determined to fix herself up into a Woman of the World… whatever that means.
Phase one: new framework for her business (a website from this decade, perhaps?)
Phase two: a gut-reno on her wardrobe (fyi, leggings are pants.)
Phase three: updates to her exterior (do people still wax?)
Phase four: put herself on the market (and stop crushing on Travis Ford!)
I’ve had this book recommended to me a few times now and when I saw it on Scridb, I had to add it to my list. I’m not sure what to expect from this book other than the typical romance but I am looking forward to seeing what I think. I’ve heard good things about the author too so I’m looking forward to seeing if I like her writing.
Better Than the Movies by Lynn Painter
Liz Buxbaum has always known that Wes Bennett was not boyfriend material. You would think that her next-door neighbor would be a prince candidate for her romantic comedy fantasies, but Wes has only proven himself to be a pain in the butt, ever since they were little. Wes was the kid who put a frog in her Barbie Dreamhouse, the monster who hid a lawn gnome’s severed head in her little homemade neighborhood book exchange.
Flash forward ten years from the Great Gnome Decapitation. It’s Liz’s senior year, a time meant to be rife with milestones perfect for any big screen, and she needs Wes’s help. See, Liz’s forever crush, Michael, has just moved back to town, and—horribly, annoyingly—he’s hitting it off with Wes. Meaning that if Liz wants Michael to finally notice her, and hopefully be her prom date, she needs Wes. He’s her in.
I’ve seen this book on so many recommendations list, so the minute that I saw it on Scribd I saved it! I’m looking forward to reading this one soon because it seems like it is right up my street. I love a rom-com myself so the idea that this book is going to incorporate a lot of them sounds like a lot of fun to me!
Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson
Monday Charles is missing, and only Claudia seems to notice. Claudia and Monday have always been inseparable—more sisters than friends. So when Monday doesn’t turn up for the first day of school, Claudia’s worried. When she doesn’t show for the second day, or second week, Claudia knows that something is wrong. Monday wouldn’t just leave her to endure tests and bullies alone. Not after last year’s rumors and not with her grades on the line. Now Claudia needs her best—and only—friend more than ever. But Monday’s mother refuses to give Claudia a straight answer, and Monday’s sister April is even less help.
This book has been on my TBR for such a long time but I have never owned a copy. So, when I saw that it was available on Scribd I saved it to my account. I’ve heard nothing but incredible reviews about this book and having read some of Tiffany D. Jackson’s other books I want to give this one a read. I’ll definitely be prioritising this one.
We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This by Rachel Lynn Solomon
Quinn Berkowitz and Tarek Mansour’s families have been in business together for years: Quinn’s parents are wedding planners, and Tarek’s own a catering company. At the end of last summer, Quinn confessed her crush on him in the form of a rambling email—and then he left for college without a response.
Quinn has been dreading seeing him again almost as much as she dreads another summer playing the harp for her parents’ weddings. When he shows up at the first wedding of the summer, looking cuter than ever after a year apart, they clash immediately. Tarek’s always loved the grand gestures in weddings—the flashier, the better—while Quinn can’t see them as anything but fake. Even as they can’t seem to have one civil conversation, Quinn’s thrown together with Tarek wedding after wedding, from performing a daring cake rescue to filling in for a missing bridesmaid and groomsman.
Quinn can’t deny her feelings for him are still there, especially after she learns the truth about his silence, opens up about her own fears, and begins learning the art of harp-making from an enigmatic teacher.
I read a book by Rachel Lynn Solomon at the beginning for the year and absolutely loved it. So, when I saw this one on Scribd of course I had to save it. This one sounds like a whole lot of fun and has a gorgeous cover too. I’m looking froward to reading this one and sharing my thoughts soon!
Horrid by Katrina Leno
Following her father’s death, Jane North-Robinson and her mom move from sunny California to the dreary, dilapidated old house in Maine where her mother grew up. All they want is a fresh start, but behind North Manor’s doors lurks a history that leaves them feeling more alone…and more tormented.
As the cold New England autumn arrives, and Jane settles in to her new home, she finds solace in old books and memories of her dad. She steadily begins making new friends, but also faces bullying from the resident “bad seed,” struggling to tamp down her own worst nature in response. Jane’s mom also seems to be spiraling with the return of her childhood home, but she won’t reveal why. Then Jane discovers that the “storage room” her mom has kept locked isn’t for storage at all — it’s a little girl’s bedroom, left untouched for years and not quite as empty of inhabitants as it appears….
I cannot lie to you and say the cover did not draw me in because look at it, it is gorgeous. I love a contemporary horror now and then and what better time to read one that over Halloween. I would love to read this one very soon and then share my thoughts with you!
