Book Review: True Loaf by L. Austen Johnson

*I was sent an arc of True Loaf in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to L. Austen Johnson*

Synopsis: 

When a strange man puts in a strange request at the bakery where she works, Riley must go on a mini-adventure to find one unusual ingredient. Along the way, she realizes that things are not always what they seem and that fae might just be real.

Review: 

This was the perfect audiobook for me. I find I lose focus very quickly with audiobooks and as this was just 15 minutes long I was able to concentrate fully on it the whole time. This short stand-alone story was whimsical and a great representation of Balkan folklore. 

The cover is what 100% drew me in. I love the art style and I think it is a perfect representation of what the story is about and the type of story it is. The characters look very much like ones you would find in a ‘fairytale’ setting and I like that even though you do not know them for very long you are able to visualise them fully. 

There isn’t really a lot I can say about the plot without giving away the entire story so I will just say that it was fun, interesting and one that I would actually have liked to see in a longer format. I love folklore and fairytales so this was right up my street. 

If you are looking to get into audiobooks then this is definitely a great place to start. With its short length, you are able to get a good idea of where you stand with audiobooks. I’m personally not the biggest fan of audiobooks, however, I really enjoyed this one.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
