We were in love?!

Narrating a book together
Welp, we took our love of audiobooks to a new level in 2018 when we narrated our FIRST audiobook together! In Left Hanging by Cindy Dorminy we played Darla and Theo. Two hardworking southern individuals that had a one night stand in college that resulted in a bebe that Theo had NO idea about. DRAMAAAAA! But we aren't here to review ourselves, we are here to talk about the process and talk about how the experience influenced our reviews! It's impacted the direction we've taken AudioShelf and also help us realize that we are both HORRIBLE at southern accents :P. --This is the audio from our recent BookTube video.

Reverie

by Ryan La Sala
Happy bookday to Ryan La Sala's debut novel Reverie! Today we are doing a Reader Q&A for this YA fantasy, and a fantasy it is! It's got it all: Dreams, a drag queen, a boy named Kane that reminders Brad of a wrestler. This book is a rollercoaster of emotions and a metaphor for being yourself. It's a huge step for the LGBTQ+ community that EVERYONE could pick up and learn something from. Check out the Q&A to see if Britney has all of her questions answered in order to give this imaginative debut a read! --This is the audio from our BookTube video.

Since Thanksgiving is tomorrow, we thought we'd have a little fun and go through some classic turkey day categories and match them up with books. We have FIVE categories: Home, Friends, Family, Food, and SHOPPING! Do any of your recent reads fit into any of those categories? --This is the audio from our most recent BookTube episode.

Okay, so we are no more good. On Sunday, we got the chance of a lifetime to interview Holly Black at the Christiana Mall Barnes & Noble during her The Queen of Nothing book tour. It was beyond amazing to meet her, experience her huge impact on her fans, and just chat with her about books! If YOU have met Holly on any of her book tour stops, tell us about the experience in the comments! We hope you enjoy our interview and that some of your burning questions were asked & answered! :) SPECIAL THANKS! NONE of this would have been possible without the amazing planning of Kaitlyn at the Christiana Mall Barnes and Noble in Newark Delaware, the incredible staff at B&N, Holly's publicist, Siena, and Holly Black herself! We can't thank everyone enough for making this possible and being SO wonderful. Alright, we're crying, we gotta go!

Imaginary Friend

by Stephen Chbosky
Narrated by Christine Lakin
Well....we don't even know where to begin. Stephen Chbosky's Imaginary Friend is a genre all on it's own. Horrific, confusing, and really, really intriguing. It's an audiobook you can't stop listening to, which is good because it's 24 hours long, so you're gonna be listening for awhile. While we can't say that we would pick up the physical copy, we CAN say that Christine Lakin is a goddess on the mic! 3 things we took away from this book 1. Don't drive at night. 2. Don't follow clouds with faces. 3. Don't listen to grandma because she's been dead for 4 years. Tune in to hear what the heck we are talking about and be sure to pick up a copy of the Imaginary Friend AUDIOBOOK! --This is the audio from our latest BookTube video.
