I love to read! I remember being in awe at the Scholastic book fair at school, in the library or at Barnes and Noble, and getting my first library card.  All of these give me great memories of books and reading. But, as an adult I don’t have much time to read.  And honestly, when I do have time I end up falling asleep or starting something else instead.  When my sister suggested I listen to audiobooks or podcasts during my commute I started renting books from the library. I drive about an hour or an hour and a half each day which gives me lots of time to cross some books off my list.  It also helps the commute go by faster!

In my life update back in January I shared The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain as one of the things I was loving.  (If you missed my brief review of The Silent Sister read it here.) That book started me on a thriller kick (although not all of the books listed in this post are thrillers).  After reading several more books, I had the idea to share the books I finished and liked with my fellow avid readers in their own post rather than a life update.

Books I’ve recently read/listened too:
