Mijn favoriete Storytel boeken – Winter ’20

Gepost op 7 februari 2020 door Katja in Boeken / 0 Comments

Sinds afgelopen zomer ben ik fan geworden van Storytel. De app met meer dan 100.000 audioboeken. Mijn favorieten van deze winter? Dat kan je lezen in deze blog.

The Hand on the Wall (#3) – Maureen Johnson
[Flaptekst Truly Devious]
Ellingham Academy is a famous private school in Vermont for the brightest thinkers, inventors, and artists. It was founded by Albert Ellingham, an early twentieth century tycoon, who wanted to make a wonderful place full of riddles, twisting pathways, and gardens. “A place” he said, “where learning is a game.”
Shortly after the school opened, his wife and daughter were kidnapped. The only real clue was a mocking riddle listing methods of murder, signed with the frightening pseudonym, Truly Devious. It became one of the great unsolved crimes of American history.

A Question of Holmes (#4) – Brittany Cavallaro
[Flaptekst A Study in Charlotte]
The last thing Jamie Watson wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited not only Sherlock’s genius but also his volatile temperament. From everything Jamie has heard about Charlotte, it seems safer to admire her from afar.
From the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else. But when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Jamie and Charlotte are being framed for murder, and only Charlotte can clear their names. But danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.

Mysteries zijn nog steeds mijn favorieten als het aankomt op audioboeken. Heerlijk vind ik het om naar te luisteren met een warme choco havermelk terwijl ik aan het tekenen ben. Wanneer het in de avond donker wordt, geeft het ook nog eens extra sfeer!

Loveboat, Taipei (#1) – Abigail Hing Wen
When eighteen-year-old Ever Wong’s parents send her from Ohio to Taiwan to study Mandarin for the summer, she finds herself thrust among the very over-achieving kids her parents have always wanted her to be, including Rick Woo, the Yale-bound prodigy profiled in the Chinese newspapers since they were nine—and her parents’ yardstick for her never-measuring-up life.
Unbeknownst to her parents, however, the program is actually an infamous teen meet-market nicknamed Loveboat, where the kids are more into clubbing than calligraphy and drinking snake-blood sake than touring sacred shrines.
Free for the first time, Ever sets out to break all her parents’ uber-strict rules—but how far can she go before she breaks her own heart?

Eindelijk een comtemporary op de lijst! Haha. Ik vind het super leuk en fijn dat Storytel altijd probeert om nieuwe releases zo snel mogelijk op de app te zetten. Voor de fans van Jenny Han is dit boek absoluut een aanrader.

The Law of Attraction, Plain and Simple: Create the Extraordinary Life That You Deserve – Sonia Ricotti
The Law of Attraction states that we attract into our lives what we project into the universe. Written in concise, plain English and filled with stories, tips, and exercises, this book helps readers shift their thoughts, language, and emotions to emit positive vibrations and attract all they want in life. Using the eleven steps in this book, readers stop projecting negative energy and learn to project positive energy–at all times.

Om eerlijk te zijn wist ik eerst niet wat ik ervan zou vinden om een non-fictie boeke te gaan luisteren. Bovenstaande boek duurt niet meer dan een uur, dus makkelijk om even te proberen. Dit audioboek vind ik zo fijn omdat het je een positief gevoel geeft en ja het luistert inderdaad net zo fijn als een fictie boek.

Lees hier mijn ervaring met Storytel.
