Hello readers! Hope you’re having a fantastic Tuesday and ready for another TTT. It’s a really interesting post today because I’ve been tempted to pay for audible for months now but I just don’t have a lot of time to listen. Now that I run a hell of a lot more I think it could be a good idea.
On another note if you think about listening the 1Q84 by Murakami it would take you 47 hours. #WHAAAAA. Enjoy the top ten audio books I want to listen to.
This Boy: a Memoir of a Childhood written and read by Alan Johnson
I started reading this book over a year ago and I just lost some steam reading it and gave up. It’s a beautiful memoir about growing up in the 50’s and the difficulties of living beneath the poverty line. I really want to finish this.
AMY SCHUMER HAS BEEN ALL OVER THE PLACE RECENTLY and I’ve kind of stayed away but I think it’s time to read a little more from Amy Shumer and report back to lovely humans.
When a young boy discovers the body of a woman beneath a thick sheet of ice in a South London park, Detective Erika Foster is called in to lead the murder investigation.
^ I love Thrillers and this one does not look like it would disappoint. The cover really, really drew my eye so I thought why the hell no.
It’s the snake in her brain that has told her ever since she was a teenager that her world is about to come crashing down: that her family might die if she doesn’t repeat a phrase five times, or that she might have murdered someone and forgotten about it. It’s caused alopecia, bulimia, and drug dependency. And Bryony is sick of it.
Keeping silent about her illness has given it a cachet it simply does not deserve, so here she shares her story with trademark wit and dazzling honesty.
^ I’m reaaaaaly into memoir’s at the moment and I think this one could be quite an inspiring one? I’ll report back.
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
I suggested this to Mumma B and she still hasn’t read it! Due to not wanting to buy another in the same form and I want her to read it I’ll just get it on audio book and then maybe we could finally discuss a book together.
The Danish Girl by David Ebershoff
I really wanted to see this when it came out but I really wanted to read the book first but I have so many other books to reaaaad so maybe I’ll just listen – when I can’t get up in the morning #YAWWWWWWN
One Hundred Days of Happiness by Fausto Brizzi
What would you do if you knew you only had 100 days left to live? For Lucio Battistini, it’s a chance to spend the rest of his life the way he always should have—by making every moment count.
^ This a book for when I want to cry whilst I’m out running because this seem uber sad but utterly beautiful – PROBABLY.
So there you go, ten books I would like. Also T if you’re there maybe you could just buy me an audible subscriptions forever? Thank you.

A great list, Lizzie – although if you’re planning on running while listening to The Martian, be prepared to suddenly find yourself laughing aloud. The book is way funnier and sharper than the film. Enjoy these:)
Great list -lots of interesting books there! I’m really not into audiobooks though, they just aren’t for me. 😦
So I went with a bit of a different topic for this week’s TTT. If you want to check it out, here’s the link:
The Year of Living Danishly sounds like fun! My TTT
Great choices here! I really want to get The Martian, so I might have to make it my next audible download. I hadn’t thought about getting it as an audiobook!
Don’t you find certain narrators voices get on your nerves?
