AudioShelf A Podcast for AudioBookWorms


Books, reality tv, and friendship. They all sound like three very different things, right? Welp... this week we are smashing them all together for our first Friendship Challenge! Today we are putting our friendship to the test by GUESSING which reality tv program is the other's favorite AND THEN finding a book based on whichever program we thought of. The only clues we have for the other's potential favorite reality tv show comes from years of gif sharing, random discussions, and Facebook posts about weekly ratings. We have no idea what the person is going to guess, and we definitely do not know what book we'll choose for one another. Tune in to find out if your favorite reality show is mentioned and if maybe a book should be added to your TBR. This is the audio from our latest BookTube episode!

Evidence of the Affair

by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Narrated by Julia Whelan, George Newbern, James Daniels, Dara Rosenberg
We love a good audiobook that is short, sweet, and HIGHLY intriguing. In this week's review, we are taking a look at Evidence of the Affair by Taylor Jenkins Reid. She has a way with her writing where EVERYTHING is interesting no matter if it's a rock band from the 60s or letter writing between two victims of adulterers. The narrators in this audiobook make it feel like a mini movie right in your ears! It's only an hour and 19 minutes, trust us, you have that kind of time to listen and LOVE IT!

Yup, all reasons the books discussed in this video are on our list of Popular Book Series We Stopped Reading. Book 1 // :40 Book 2 // 2:33 Book 3 // 4:40 Book 4 // 6:04 (we go on for a bit about this one XD)
