Follow Friday #32 – Your First (Audio) Book 2018

Friday, January 12, 2018
Launched by Sonja of A Bookshelf Full Of Sunshine, continued by FiktiveWelten with a new logo.

The blog action is for lively communication between bloggers, a good network and should be fun. Duration of the question: Friday to Thursday. Rules. No registration required.

This week the FF wants to know what (audio) book I read first this year or listened to it. Well, to be honest, I am doing both. Or did. I just finished a printed book AND I am listening since many weeks to an audiobook which I will finish soon.

But don´t think the print or the audio would be bad because it took me so long to read it and because I am still listening to the audio.

No, not at all.

It is just that I didn´t have the time to read as much as I usually do. And during December and the first eleven days of 2018, I had tons of other things to do and to deal with; so reading time was very limited. 

The good news is, I just finished One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake before I read the question for todays´ FF and am still listening to Royally Screwed by Emma Chase.

Both books are one hell of a great entertainment, each of them in its own ways and style and I am smiling like crazy while listening to the royal audio. I guess one of my next reviews will be about Kendare Blakes´ three murderous queens …

How is it about you?

Happy reading & listening

Happy reading

I am Vi, avid reader, book blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works. I like many genres, but horror is nothing for me! Have fun.


  1. I've started listening to audiobooks, too, but they take me a long time to get through because I only listen to them in the car, to and from work.

    1. Same here. It takes me an awful lot of time to listen to them *smile* and I can only do that while I am running in the wood or running some errands... Thanks for visiting.

  2. Haven't read (or listened to) those two yet :) I'm currently listening to Black Elk Speaks, a nonfiction book, an actual narration by a Native American at the start of the 20th century. Really interesting.

    1. That sounds very interesting. I need to look for it. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Hm, der Schwarze Thron also ... das Buch, dass mir durch allzu viel Hype und Werbung allenorts verleidet wurde. ;o) Mal sehen, wenn etwas Schnee drüber geflockt ist, teste ich es vielleicht mal aus der Biblio an.

    Liebe Grüße

    1. Ganz ehrlich, normalerweise bin ich auch kein Hype-Leser. Als mir aber Band 1 vom Verlag angeboten wurde, hab ich mir den schicken lassen und war begeistert. Und nach DEM ENDE musste ich einfach den zweiten Teil haben. Den bekam ich dann geschenkt und hab ihn über Neujahr und Jänner genossen. Was für ein Buch!
