Right now I’m packing for my weekend trip to Virginia, (packing, tumblr, who can tell the difference, really…) but I wanted to post a quick #fridayreads. I’m not sure if this is a blog thing, but a lot of the Youtubers I watch do #fridayreads where they quickly mention the books they’re going to be winding down the week with.

Because when you like reading enough to blog about it, chances are you’re not doing anything else with your friday.

I’ll be driving the six hours to Virginia by myself, so audiobooks it is! Kindle Unlimited has kindly provided me (well, and everyone else with an Amazon account and a debit card) with Whispersync’d books to listen to on the road, and I have an Audible account that I haven’t decided whether or not to cancel…
The drive to Virginia is all winding roads and empty highways and lots and lots cannibal-worthy hiding places. (You can’t be too careful around people who live that far away from society, ok. I’ve seen Deliverance. I know what’s up.)

Inspired by the creepy scenery and creeping darkness, I’m listening to Dracula, voiced by Tim Curry and Alan Cumming, and Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach. I’ve started Spook, and it isn’t in the least bit scary yet, but I have high hopes.


I’m also listening to:

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I was under the uneducated impression that this book was a teen horror, but having listened to about 30% of it I have learned that is a teen romance, with very little suspense and oodles of mixed metaphors. Lovely. I’m still determined to finish it so I can review it, but I don’t expect it to be pleasant.

I’ve also downloaded like 8 other Whispersync’d Kindle Unlimited books… so if I get bored it’s my own fault.

Off to actually pack, perhaps will see you on Sunday?



p.s. Hopefully I’ll have some time for a blog redesign (or… just ‘design’ I guess) this weekend. I wanted to get into the swing of blogging, even though I haven’t had much time to commit to the whole branding experience that is modern blogging. IT’S CALLED ‘TAKING INITIATIVE’ NOT ‘BEING UNPREPARED’ OK?

    ‘Spook’ wasn’t my favorite Mary Roach book (‘Stiff’ wins that title), but it’s still a good choice for creepy roads!
