As you lovely readers may have noticed, my husband and I have been on the road quite a bit this summer.
So we have basically become pros at keeping ourselves entertained while driving.
Which actually turns out to be a pretty simple formula for us: audiobooks + discussion breaks = a much shorter drive.
And what have we been listening to, you ask? Well, I would love to tell you (I do have a degree in English Lit, after all.)
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
This is the first in a ten-book cycle, and let me just say I CANNOT WAIT for the next book. Write, Brandon, write!!
The Warlock by Michael Scott
This is book 5 of 6, the last one coming out in 2012. Ahhh! Although this book mostly set up what looks to be a very exciting conclusion, Scott kept it action-packed throughout, as usual.
Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson
Have I mentioned that Brandon Sanderson is my favorite author? This is not my favorite of his books, but it still does the trick for a long road trip.
And selections from my very favorite book ever:
Lirael by Garth Nix
Have I mentioned that Garth Nix is my other favorite author? We actually didn’t finish this one because it hadn’t been long enough since the last time we listened to it (it had been a year), and I hadn’t “forgotten” enough of it yet. When you’ve read/listened to this book as much as I have, it’s hard to forget. I think we’ll give it another year.
If you can’t tell, SunnySeedHusband and I are both very into fantasy (although I would say I am probably greater fantasy nerd of the two of us—he actually reads other genres).
So what do you do to entertain yourself during long car trips? Anyone have any audiobook recommendations?
