What I'm reading 2016: vol. 2 {audioblog experiment!}

what i'm reading 2016 The year is half over, which is to say, it's a fun time to take stock and see how much I've been reading. It's been a good year of reading for me although I haven't been sharing my books here very frequently. I last updated this blog with what I've been reading in March, at which point I had read fourteen books. Now that three more months have zoomed by, I figured it was about time to share again.

This time, however, I'm doing something a little different, just for fun. I'm listing the books I've read in the last few months, and then I'm recording a fun little audioblog for you to listen to where I give some little blurbs about what I thought of these books.

(long live beach reading!)

Of note: I hated one (perhaps surprisingly?) and quit it at 51%, which, while I support quitting books that don't resonate, it's not something I do often. Listen below to find out which one it was.

Here are the books; scroll down for the audio!

Click below to listen to me share all about these books! You should be able to listen right in your browser. (And don't mind the timer going off about halfway through, I was baking bread while recording. Also, sorry if I get a little repetitive at times. Must find synonym for cute.) ;)
