Audible by Amazon

​So recently I’ve set up a monthly subscription to Audible from Amazon. It seems like a good idea; you get a free book- your first month for free, and from there the membership costs £7.99 a month. When you compare the £7.99 a month for the subscription in comparison to price of and audio book (A Court of Mist and Fury is £30.79) it’s a good deal. However if you’re anything like me, and love getting stuck in to a good story then you could listen to a 30 hour audio book in a week. Except you only get only audio book per month from your monthly subscription. In the initial months, you’re limited to the small but steadily growing collection in your library. I’ll never lose my love for a good ol’ book in hand but audible makes life a little less restricted when time is limited for reading.

It isn’t all bad though. It’s great to hear the prenunciation of all of you beloved characters name and nothing is more satisfying than placing a voice to a character. You also get to keep the audio books if you ever cancelled your subscription. Its great to listen on the go, it’s easy to download and listen offline, saving precious mobile data and being free from Wi-Fi restrictions. It’s also great for studying (if you’re a miserable student like myself) as it puts a little bit of excitement into a night of stressful essay writing.
I’ll continue with my subscription, it’s going to take a while to build up a decent audio library. I’m currently listening to A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas and rekindling my love for the plot. And I have the Daughter of Smoke and Bone lined up for when ACOTAR is finished.
Until next time,

Louise

The beginning of the Story

Hi guys, I’m Louise.

I recently started writing blog posts for my friend on her site iamthenatnat.wordpress.com and have been pleased to see that people are actually reading my posts and reviews. I’ve decided that it’s time for me to set up my own book blog. It’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a while but finally I’ve had the kick that I needed to actually set one up. So here it is!
I just wanted to post a little about myself. I’m nineteen and I am currently a student of Geography in my third year of university at Aberdeen University. I’m a trainee manager at in a well known fast food chain and I don’t entirely hate it. I enjoy reading and writing, film and cinema. I particularly enjoy sci-fi and fantasy, young adult and romance novels but I enjoy most fictional reads.
I will post regularly, probably not in any consistent order but it will be often and there will be many blog posts. I’m going to offer views, opinions, and reviews on books. I’d love to hear from you guys, and I’m happy to take recommendations for books that you would like to see reviewed. I’m very excited to start this and I hope others enjoy reading it as much as I will writing.
Until next time!
