Hey guys! Today I’m coming at you with what is sort of like my audiobook tbr but, also like what I’m currently listening to and it’s also like maybe I don’t know what I’m doing and what is this intro at this point??? Anywayyy, AUDIOBOOKS! Enjoy!
WHAT I’M CURRENTLY LISTENING TO
I recently watched Merphy Napier talk about the Divergent trilogy on her channel and I thought her views on the trilogy were really interesting. I’ve linked the video (here) so you can watch it if you haven’t already but, I thought her book talk was really interesting. I’ll be honest, I haven’t even thought about the trilogy since I read the first book back in 2014 but the way Merphy talked about the books and Tris as a character really made me want to go back and finish the trilogy, or at least re-read the first book.
I am currently writing this on June 28th, so I might already be finished the book by the time this goes live but, so far I am part way through chapter ten (roughly 125 pages in) and really enjoying it. I wasn’t sure I would even make it through the first chapter because of the way everyone has been trashing the trilogy over the years, but I think that I might even continue the trilogy once I finish this one.
Actually, while I’m on it, I’d love to know if you guys actually finished the trilogy/ read any of the books or if our community trashing the series turned you off reading the books?
WHAT I PLAN ON PICKING UP SOON
So, after I finish listening to Divergent, if I don’t pick up Insurgent straight away, I will probably be picking up some of these (^). I recently read volume 1 of Wires and Nerve and it really made me want to go back and re-read The Lunar Chronicles so hopefully, I’ll be getting to Scarlet soon (Yo, Rebecca, hit me up if you still want to buddy read!).
Throughout this month I also hope to get to the audiobook for The Final Empire, which you should already know if you read my surprise tbr for the month! I have already listened to this before and I loved it so I can’t wait to re-listen to this one!
And then we have The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, The Rules of Backyard Croquet & Scythe which I’m hoping to get to sometime in the next month or two!
Let me know if you’ve read or listened to any of these and what you thought of them!
