#FridayReads – A Library Book Filled Weekend

Happy Friday, everyone! Another weekend is here. It’s cold. There’s snow. And its perfect for bundling up with some great books!

There’s going to be less cracking a book open for the first time this weekend and more finishing the half-dozen books I’ve started over the last week. A number of them are almost done, and I can’t wait to get to the end! So without further ado, here’s what’s on my reading agenda this weekend.

4 (More!) Podcasts for Audiobook Lovers

Here’s the thing with fictionalized podcasts. They can be hard to find. For example, I use Google Play to listen to most of my favorite podcasts, but the platform doesn’t have any sort genre listing for fictional stories. This makes it difficult to find fictional stories at large, let alone stories in a specific genre.

Once again, I’m here with podcasts that tell fictional stories that are perfect for audiobook lovers. Everything I’ve recommended below is something I’ve listened to completion or am fully caught up with all released episodes. If you’re interested in more recommendations you can visit the first and second posts in this series!

4 Fictional Podcasts for Audiobook Lovers

I discovered podcasts before audiobooks. I know that might sound funny to some people, but it’s true. Everyone around me is off listening to the audiobook version of the latest hot new book release, and I’m standing in my kitchen ignoring my burning dinner staring at my Google Home as I listen to a fictionalized podcast.

May Day Patterns: Writing The Arrival of Missives by Aliya Whiteley

By Aliya Whiteley

 

I can remember, when I was young, being taught a simple dance. All of my schoolmates were taught it too. We stood in a circle, each raising one arm in the air, then skipped around each other in a pattern: in and out, round and round. It made no sense to me until May Day came around and we were marched out of class to a Maypole that had been erected in the playground. Each given a colourful ribbon to hold in those outstretched hands, we did our dance as directed, and found we had woven a pattern that spread out from the pole until there was no space left to dance.
