a month of faves

#AMonthofFaves: Picking Favorites #2

Another two-fer today. First, authors I will be checking out more work from that I read for the first time this year:

  • Aimee Bender (The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake)

  • K.L. Going (Pieces of Why)

Since I got back into audiobooks this year after a year-long hiatus, I'm also super excited about these two narrators I discovered this year:

  • Bahni Turpin (Smek for President!, Till You Hear from Me)

  • Bronson PInchot (The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom)

They are both fantastic. In fact, I may even seek out more books that Pinchot has narrated whether I know the author's work or not. He is that good.

Finally, some cool stuff from reading everyone else's posts this week:

  • I learned about The Republic of Tea Peppermint Bark tea from Tara @ Running ’n’ Reading. My daughter loves peppermint bark AND tea, so I will probably get her this for Christmas next year.

  • I'm probably going to read The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck by Sarah Knight based on Andi’s recommendation

  • Katie in MA’s description of how she and her family celebrate Advent and Christmas made me jealous and now I want to play.

Grades go in Monday, so I'm hoping to participate in and read even more posts this week. Happy end of the semester to me!
