If you had told me a year ago that I would have an active Audible subscription where I listened to at least one audiobook a week I would have said you are crazy. Audiobooks are something I’ve only recently come to enjoy. I wouldn’t say I love them just yet as at the moment I’m mostly listening to Audible originals and I’m yet to find an amazing one, but I like them quite a lot.
I’ve decided again to talk about a few of the Audible originals I have sitting in my library at the moment.
For Love or Music by Julie Lipson
As a huge music lover I just had to download this book. I haven’t read anything by Julie Lipson before but I do have a few of her books in my library.
This is my next audiobook read and I’m excited yet apprehensive about it. I really hope I like it.
Synopsis: They’ll discover the key to love in this scripted multi-cast romance with an immersive soundscape.
Sadie and Max fell in love while training to be classical pianists in music school, and they’ve been chasing their dreams together ever since. Now they’ve gotten engaged and are on the verge of a bright future—until an unexpected twist throws them out of harmony. When they’re both finalists in the prestigious Van Cage piano competition, they go from being each other’s biggest fans to fierce rivals. The winner will be launched into a meteoric career as a concert pianist, but only one can take first place. Now Max and Sadie face the ultimate test. What will come first—love or their dreams?
A Walk in the Park by Rebekah Weatherspoon
You tell me there’s a dog in a book and I will read it. Especially one that seems like it will be an “enemies (dislike) to lovers” style. I don’t know much about A Walk in the Park past the synopsis but it looks really cute.
Synopsis: Andre Monroe is ready to move on from heartbreak, and the first step is bringing home his rescue pup. He’d bonded instantly with the playful Zeus and was already planning their first adventures. But one thing he definitely hadn’t daydreamed about was Zeus accidentally being promised to someone else – or that he might go home empty-handed and brokenhearted all over again.
Janelle Johnson is not giving up her claim to Zeus. He already has a hold on her heart (and his own Instagram handle). After the year she’d had, she needed this dog. But when she sees the disappointment of the big, burly handsome man who’s clearly just as in love with the dog as she is, she proposes a deal to Andre – for one month they’ll co-parent the dog. How hard could it be?
Both of them agree to the unusual arrangement. Sharing a dog with a complete stranger isn’t quite the walk in the (dog) park they imagined, but as they work together to give Zeus a loving future, their four-legged friend might not be the only one who’s found a happily ever after.
The Break Up Artist by Erin Clark and Laura Lovely
Firstly the main character is called Zelda, very cool. Secondly the cover of this intrigued me. I’ll be hinest and say I haven’t read many books with disability represenation so when I saw this I thought I’d give it a go. I can’t promise that the rep will be done well, but that’s something I’ll find out very quickly.
I will definitely post a review so keep an eye out for that.
Synopsis: Zelda Reynolds has a secret identity as “The Break-Up Artist,” the infamous ender of relationships. Don’t want to end your relationship yourself? Just tell Zelda through her website and she’ll get the job done like a pro. Her online business isn’t paying the bills yet, but at least it’s an escape from her real life, where her boss steals her best ideas, her dates are all duds, and her dad just married someone her own age.
When Zelda starts falling for the recipient of one of her snarkiest letters yet—a guy who is challenging her to let go of past hurts and reach for her dreams—will she have the courage to tell him the truth? Or will her undercover identity as the breaker of hearts come back to haunt her?
