|I am this kid, this kid is me.|
I'm only bringing one physical book with me, and that's Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Otherwise I'm going audio and digital books only, because I am sick of the added weight in my bag and never packing books I end up actually wanting to read. But see, I don't actually have much in the way of audio and digital books, so I need to buy/download a bunch before I get on the plane and start my trip.
So far I've bought (thanks to birthday vouchers and Netgalley)
-Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
-We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
-Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
-Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett
-The Circle by Dave Eggers
-Life in Outer Space by Melissa Keil
-World War Z by Max Brooks
-Bossypants by Tina Fey
I feel like I've probably got an okay selection of digital books and I can easily download some books from my TBR list as I go*. But I would love some help finding decent audiobooks. Tom and I listened to the Harry Potter audiobooks across Japan and it was so great, not only because duh, Harry Potter, but because sometimes reading with your eyes is just too hard when you're on the tail end of a 5 hour train ride. Are there any books you've listened to on audiobook that you recommend? Are there types of books that work better as audiobooks? Should I stick to author narrated books like Bossypants or are there particular narrators to keep an eye out for?
*But any recommendations are much appreciated y'all.
