The Whisper Man

by Alex North
Narrated by Christopher Eccleston
Our parents taught us that if we don't have anything nice to say.....leave a review. So that's what we are doing today for the AUDIOBOOK version of The Whisper Man by Alex North. A drab narration, an okay story, and just bleh characterizations makes this our least favorite audiobook of 2020. But you know we have more to say than that! Be sure to tune in to find out what else goes down in today's review! -This is the audio from our latest BookTube. If you want to see us in action SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube!

Will we EVER read these books?!

Our Forever TBR
We've been building our Forever TBR list since we were in elementary school. Books we've seen in movies, books our favorite teachers recommended, books Brad never got to read because he went to Catholic school until 8th grade. Our list has been STACKED for a long time. So long, in fact, we are doubtful we'll ever read any of this list because these non-read novels have become such a staple in our lives! What's on YOUR Forever TBR? Do you think you'll ever get around to them? -- This is the audio of our latest BookTube. If you want to see us in action SUBSCRIBE to our Youtube!

Never Have I Ever

by Joshilyn Jackson
Narrated by Joshilyn Jackson
Never have I ever....enjoyed listening to someone scuba dive in a book - Britney. Never have I ever....wanted a book to get it over with already! - Brad. WE DON'T AGREE ON A BOOK! This is a rare occurrence in the universe that happens, maybe, only twice a year. Britney really enjoyed listening to the self narrated novel, Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson, she found it to be informative, thrilling, and a great little jaunt through an effed up neighborhood. Brad, on the other hand, could have done without the drawn out reading that made the audiobook almost 13 hours long. See what else we have to say about this suspenseful little diddy about Roux and Amy, and how in a tiny neighborhood...everyone's hiding something. -This is the audio from our latest BookTube.

So we've noticed something that is really interesting about most books in the thriller genre: they revolve around women. Either the woman is overcoming a tribulation, the story is based around a woman, or the woman is being stalked by some shadowy figure getting ready for MURRRRRRDERRRRR. We know it's not all thrillers, and we also LOVE when thrillers do this, but we are also curious about where the genre is going and if we'll see more men becoming the apple of gaslighting eyes in the future. --This is the audio from our latest BookTube.

We are feeling REAAAAALLLLL job envy today! Every now and then there comes a time when the main character (or minor character, lbr) in a book has a job that just makes you go "YES! THAT'S THE JOB I WANT!". 9 times out of 10 those jobs pay like garbage and wouldn't actually bring you any real joy, but HEY! It's fun to dream! --This is the audio from our latest BookTube.
