I have an Audible account, and I have credits that desperately need spending.

I honestly like most genres. I, at 26, JUST read (listened to) Harry Potter, and that has to be one of the best things I've ever listened to. I loved the Hunger Games growing up. I have read, and have the audio version of, The Martian. I've loved mystery books, I love non-fiction, I love a good sappy Nicholas Sparks book,  and honestly I'm not super picky.  I just want something that is not only a good book, but is good to listen to. If you've only read it and not listened to it, tell me about it anyways. I may give it a shot!

I'd love if you could give me a touch of detail about the book, but if not I may look it up. I like to read normal books, but I also live my life on the road, and travel a ton and spend loads of time in a vehicle. Audio books make these trips better, and allow me to experience books while I do other things, which I honestly really like. If you have listened to it, I really appreciate that feedback because not all books end up with good readers xD

I am open to everything and anything. Give me scary, sappy, sad, funny, classic or totally real and educational (yet fun). I just can't figure out what I want to get, and figured I may as well ask other people for advice c:

I don't listen to audio books, so I can't be certain, but there's a good chance it's on Audible since it's a classic. There's also a good chance you've already read it in school in the past since apparently a lot of people had to read it in middle school, I think? But I didn't, so I decided a few weeks ago to finally read it, and it's the only book that's ever made me full-out cry. The book I am referring to is The Outsiders. Again, I feel like everyone in the world had already read it before I did lol, but if you haven't I highly suggest you read/listen to it. The movie is supposedly good also but I haven't got around to watching it yet since I don't have the attention span to sit down and watch movies much.

I did read that back in middle school or so, but recall it being a really good book. I’ll definitely add it to my list of ideas! Thanks c:

If you're into Westerns, look up Louis L'Amour, he's an awesome writer! I haven't listened to any on audio, just read them, but he should have some on there. Some of my personal favourites of his are:

The Cherokee Trail: It's about a young woman raised in a comfortable lifestyle who must take her daughter to find a living in the west after her home is burned in the civil war and her husband killed. It's a really interesting, exciting plotline, and the main character is the definition of a strong lady really.

Flint: After finding out he's got cancer, and an unsuccessful attempted murder on him by his wife and her father, a very successful, rich business man disappears into the West to spend his last months in a hideout his late mentor told him of, and finds himself in the middle of a range war. This one's got a really big plot twist thrown in, and is very interesting.

The Lonesome Gods: This is hard to explain, its like a mystery, ghost, adventure, and western all in one, but it's interesting and makes you think things over a lot as your reading it.

The Sackett Brand: The Sackett's are a family mini-series Louis writes about, this one is one of my favourites of the series. After his wife is murdered, and all evidence burned, Tell Sackett finds himself in deep water when the actual murderer convinces his cowhands Tell is the one who tried to kill him. Tell is up against close to 100 hundred men who want him dead, but the hunters soon become the hunted, cause if you step on one Sackett's toes, they all come running.

The Haunted Mesa: This one is really different from Louis usual work, and also really hard to describe, but its a mystery, haunting/ghost, and adventure story in one, i dunno, it's hard to explain, and some don't like it much, but I found it quite intreguing.

Louis has a lot more books then this, these are just some of my favourites, he's also got a bunch of short stories as well if you like those. Dunno if any of these are really your style, but some might be!
