Quiet Time Book
I first heard Angie Smith years ago at a Women of Faith conference in Milwaukee, but I have not done one of her bible studies yet. I’m excited to dive into her new study Matchless about the life of Jesus. In eight sessions, Angie shares his mission, message and miracles. I’ll break the book down by reading two lessons each week.
Read Matchless with me!
Wait Time Book
When I’m waiting for my kids to come out of school or practices or I’m waiting for my groceries to be delivered to my car, I read. I always have a book in the car or in my purse so waiting never seems long. My wait time books are usually a book to help me grow in personal or professional development. They are books I can easily put down and pick back up. This month I am reading The Little Book of Stoicism by Jonas Salzgeber.
My dad retired from his law practice a year ago and decided to start a book club with some other gentleman. (My mom didn’t say yes to him joining hers. LOL!) They decided to study Stoicism and it’s been interesting to hear what he’s been learning. I decided it would be good to read up myself on seeking inner calm in a chaotic world.

For the Love of Reading
I was so excited to find a book that had it’s setting in The Northwoods! Jeff Nania writes the Northern Lakes Mystery Series and I’m starting with book one this month! Colorful characters and page turning suspense weave his stories into compelling thrillers you can’t put down! Finding a series to enjoy is one of my favorite things, then I can jump right into the next book.
Read Figure 8 with me!
Chore Time Book
When I am driving or working in the garden I love to listen to an audio book. It makes everything go faster! This month I’m going to listen to If You Ask Me written and read by Betty White.
Listen to or read If You Ask Me with Me!
Here are 15 Favorite Audiobooks I’ve listened to recently.
Historical Fiction, mysteries, memoirs. The audiobooks I’ve listened to lately and enjoyed most had amazing readers, like The Dutch House read by Tom Hanks. I love listening to an audiobook to hear the accents, pronunciations and personalities come to life.
You can find links to all of my past selections here.
Let me know what you are reading. I’d love to have you read along with me!

Kristin, what a great idea to do an audiobook. I subscribe to Audible but I only seem to listen to a book during a long car drive when I am the passenger.
It’s a great way to multi-task and thanks for the extensive list of your favorites. Love charming houses and gardens too!
Thank you so much!
We have similar taste in books. Ive read most of your recommendations! Have a great day.
I’m so glad to hear that! have a great rest of your day!
It would be fun to read Matchless with a group. do you have any organized plan/online group? I imagine with the store opening you are quite busy.

Good list of reads Kristin. I’m always looking for “new to me” suggestions. Thanks!
Thanks for stopping by!
Lilac girls was so good!! There are several on your list I haven’t read yet…thank you for the recommendations! I bet betty white’s is a lot of fun. going on my list!
NO problem! Glad to have you stopping by, can’t wait to hear how you like the rest of the recommendations! Have a great day!
What a great list of audiobooks! I LOVE audiobooks because it is the main way I can get any reading done as a newish mom (my son is 11-months old, so I guess I am not super new, but still! ) I listen while nursing, cleaning, cooking, folding laundry, jogging, driving, etc. I typically only listen to plot-driven novels or memoirs since it would be easy to get distracted if it were slower books that required more thought and note-taking. The Book of lost friends, the giver of stars, the dutch house, educated, were all excellent on audiobook. I listed to lovely war recently on audiobook and it was excellent because it used multiple voice actors!
I will link my recent reads in my name, if interested.

I have been wanting to do the audio book thing for a while but can’t find the time. One day though, I’ll get to and first on my list is probably going to be Betty White! LOL. Thanks for linking up again on Farmhouse Friday. We so appreciate it!
