Posted by on Jun 30, 2017 in Miscellaneous, News | 22 comments

This has been a really fun month. I’ve really enjoyed sharing all of the audiobook posts with everyone. I’ve been busy this month and I haven’t made it to nearly enough other blogs, but I’ve enjoyed the JIAM posts that I have seen and I will be making the rounds as soon as it slows down for me.

Just in case you missed any of my previous posts.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. I enjoyed all your posts celebrating audio book month
    thanks for the many chances to win great prizes but most of all thanks for the interesting tidbits I learned from the interviews and of course my aching audio trb pile thanks to your fantastic reviews πŸ™‚

    • Thanks. I really enjoying reading all the responses that the narrators (and the authors that Sophia interviewed) had. I’m hoping that next year I will be more on the ball and could get even more interviews done.

  2. I didn’t get to as many as I wanted to either, Melanie, but I got to a few. πŸ™‚ You did fantastic pulling this event together and doing all the great formatting.

    • Thanks. This is the first one I’ve really participated in. I enjoyed it, but it was a lot.

  3. June has been a fantastic month for audiobooks. You ladies did a great job putting together some wonderful posts. I have added several audiobooks to my library wish list. Thanks for the great month of audiobooks.

    • Thanks so much Heidi. It was a lot of work, but I had so much fun. I hope that I can do more next year. I just need to start prepping sooner.

  4. Great month of post ladies! I was wanting to do something but my travels got in the way. Oh well, there is next year and I do a month of giving thanks in Nov. where I thank lots of authors and narrators. πŸ™‚

    • I should’ve started prepping sooner than I did. I might do a single giving thanks post. Or maybe one a week. I have a hard time with more than 4 posts per week (including Rabid Reads).

  5. You gals did a great job with the posts, thank you!

    • Thanks so much Livia. It was a lot of fun. I have even more posts that I could’ve done. I want to do more interviews too.

    • Thanks so much Jonetta. I had a good time. This was my first year really doing anything for audiobook month.

  6. Great interviews this month! Hopefully a lot of people have found some new listens!

  7. It was such a fun month and I enjoyed all that you offered πŸ™‚
