Here we are again with a short list of fictional podcasts that are perfect for audiobook lovers. These are podcasts that tell a fictional story, most often in a serialized format. Everything I recommend is something I’ve listened to either to completion or am fully caught up with newly released episodes.
Last year I participated in the O.W.L.s Readathon, a readathon based on the O.W.L. exams all 5th year Hogwarts students take in the Harry Potter series. It’s almost time for the 2019 O.W.L. Readathon, and I’m here today with a little information about the readathon for anyone who wants to participate along with my TBR.
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.

Ruin’s Wake by Patrick Edwards
Synopsis via Goodreads: A moving and powerful science fiction novel with themes of love, revenge, and identity. A story about humanity, and the universal search to find salvation in the face of insurmountable odds.
An old soldier in exile embarks on a desperate journey to find his dying son. A young woman trapped in an abusive marriage with a government official finds hope in an illicit love. A female scientist uncovers a mysterious technology that reveals that her world is more fragile than she believed.
Unification imagines a world ruled by a totalitarian government, where history has been erased and individual identity is replaced by the machinations of the state. As the characters try to save what they hold most dear – in one case a dying son, in the other secret love – their fates converge to a shared destiny.
Happy Friday, everyone! And Happy March 1st! Spring is almost here, although it is currently snowing. I just want warm weather to get here so the draft in my kitchen won’t kill my poor basil plant completely.
What a month. I didn’t get as much reading done as I’d hoped. But with an every growing TBR and dozens of absolutely amazing books being published every month I always feel like I’m not getting enough reading done. This month I got some absolutely wonderful books from publishers, friends, and purchases that I want to tell about.
