This was a freebie that I picked up from Audible. I knew it was a romance, so I knew how it was going to end. The story was interesting, and I was enjoying it a lot, until the very descriptive sex scene happened. This is only an audiobook, so I would expect the writer, publisher, editor, etc., would realize that many people are listening in their cars. I do not need an explicit sex scene on my commute.
The rest of the story was great, though. If you’re listening other than in your car, sure, go for it. Otherwise, I would suggest you think twice.
The above article tells about Audible Originals. These audiobooks are only available through Audible, with a subscription. I have several of them, but haven’t read them yet. I always only get about halfway through Pride and Prejudice. Maybe this one might be the one that I actually get through? Below is the list from the article.
I picked this up as a palate cleanser between bookclub books. It was included with my Audible subscription, and it was short. It was the perfect time to read it.
This was a light epistolary book about a couple going through a divorce during Covid times. It addresses many of the difficulties with life in during this time, along with general difficulties of time management.
I think that it was well written and hit many points that I hadn’t thought of. Plus it kept my interest for the whole story.
Lately, my insomnia has been awful. I will sleep for a couple of hours and then I’ll be awake for a couple of hours, wide awake. I have been referring to these nights as history of math nights. After I get fed up with being awake, I’ll turn the audiobook on and I’ll generally be asleep within 15 minutes.
I have to give kudos to whoever thought of recording this. It works wonders when I need it. There’s another one that works for me, too, The Perfect Swing. It just doesn’t have the same ring to it as history of math night.
I found this gem as a freebie on Audible. It was part of the set to help you relax and sleep. It certainly helped me sleep. I lasted maybe 5 minutes. I was out cold. It worked for its intended purpose. I could tell by the title that it would be a snoozer.
I feel strange giving this 5 stars when it was boring and sleep worthy. It was worth listening to for sleep purposes, which is how it is marketed on Audible. It worked great!
This is supposed to be for meditation and relaxation, but it doesn’t work that way. There’s a man’s voice that is very jarring, not relaxing at all, that suddenly interrupts the relaxing sounds of the crystal bowls. He throws out instructions to breathe with the high bowl and the low bowl sounds. The pitch that’s chosen for the high and low bowl sounds is almost like an alarm clock. I dozed a bit while listening, but every time the high bowl sound came on, it woke me. Every time the man spoke, it woke me. This definitely isn’t the relaxation recording for me.
This was another freebie I got in the effort to find mediation and relaxation books. I was a little nervous about the possibility that the water sounds might activate my bladder, but they didn’t. It did make me sleep, though.
I spent a little time wondering why I didn’t hear any seagulls. I will need to look up if deals are only on the west coast or why there weren’t any during the recording. Something to do later, I guess
