Hi Y’all! It is November and I am bringing back #30DaysOfThanks for Year 4 aka #30DaysOfThanks2015. I had so much fun doing this last 3 years that I thought I would recycle the program again this year. Switching it up this year with 3 posts a day–1 author, 1 narrator, and 1 blogger that really touched me this year. I didn’t have room to thank everyone because really my life overfloweth with awesome bloggers, books, and listening enjoyment. I tried to fit in some new people who have come into my life/reading enjoyment the last year while still shouting out my tribe of many years. I am so glad that I didn’t have room because it means my life ROCKS!
Anne has been part of my listening enjoyment for a while now. However this year I listened to her narrate Why Lords Lose Their Hearts by Manda Collins and remembered exactly why she was one of my go-to narrators. This book really showcased many of her talents (pacing, character connection, performance). She really has a knack for bringing characters alive!
