My February 2024 Reads

It’s March 1st and here are my February reads!!  I listened to four audiobooks in February. I’m slowly but surely getting through a physical book. There is nothing wrong with it, in fact I am enjoying it, but life happened! As of working on this post on Monday, I have about 150 pages left of it.  I’ll get it finished soon!

Here is a list of the books in the order I finished them:

The Girl on the News by Elizabeth Carpenter -3.5 stars
by Sarah Ready- 4.5 stars
You’ll Never Know I’m Here
by Kiersten Modglin 3.5 stars
The Teacher
by Freida McFadden5 stars

My favorite read was The Teacher.  It comes with trigger warnings, so take heed, and I did not expect going in that it would end up being my top read and also a 5 star read! Freida McFadden got me with this one! Knowing the ending I really need to listen to it again!

My ‘least favorite’ was The Girl on the News. It just didn’t work for me. I also think this one is one I need to actually read versus listen to.

My December 2023 Reads

Today is December 30th, and it’s almost time to say goodbye to 2023. 

I read /listened to 10 books in December: Eight audiobooks and two physical books. Of those eight audiobooks three were short stories.

The books are listed below in the order I finished them:

The Inmate by Freida McFadden- 4 stars
If You Could See the Sun
by Ann Liang- 4 stars
Skipping Christmas
by John Grisham- 3 stars
by Christina Dalcher- 4 stars
Do Not Open
by Kiersten Modglin- 5 stars
The Gift
by Freida McFadden- 3 stars
Her Silent Bones
by Pamela Fagan Hutchins- 3.5 stars
The Pram
by Joe Hill-3 stars
Ankle Snatcher
by Grady Hendrix- 4 stars
by Sarah Davis- 4 stars

My favorite read was Do Not Open. It’s like Misery but on crack! And with listening to this book, Kiersten Modglin is becoming an author I will most likely read anything she writes now!

My ‘least favorite’ was Skipping Christmas. This was a book club read and the only reason I read it again. I had read it many years ago and was not impressed with it. It also became a movie Christmas with the Kranks that I also did not enjoy.
