My Audiobooks | March and April 2023

It’s time for another haul—these are my ACL picks from March and April 2023. I don’t have too much to say here, but I’ll have a post talking about some of these and my past picks next month, so watch. out for that if you’re interested. But for now, let’s get into it.

How To Think Like A Woman by Regan Penaluna

This was the only one I ended up grabbing in March—there was one other I was interested in, but I was having trouble with the website and just gave up in the end. But anyway, that’s irrelevant. I honestly only really picked up this one because it mentioned Mary Wollstonecraft, who I find fascinating, and I’m always interested to read more about her. I think this could be an interesting way of looking at her and her works, and I might end up being interested in the other women mentioned too. I figured it was worth a shot.

This House Is Not A Home by Katłįà

Onto April now. This one is set in far north Canada when a family return home to find themselves suddenly homeless and forced to live in the settler-colonial mining town. It also mentions that the teenage son of this family has just returned home from a residential school where he has been for a number of years and there’s some tension that. The blurb says it’s heartbreaking and based on true events, so I think it’ll be one I need to get the tissues out for. I saw this was also the author’s third book and her previous two sound fantastic as well, so hopefully, if I enjoy this one, I’ll have the chance to pick something else up.

Hula by Jasmin Iolani Hakes

This one is also a generational family story, though set in Hilo, Hawai’i. This follows three generations of women from the one family and mentions it talks about legacy, tradition, culture and history. It sounds like it might also be quite emotional, especially as it’s about the relationship between mothers and daughters (those always pluck at my heartstrings) but it also sounds like it’ll be a beautiful read. Neither of these two are usually the sort of thing I’d read, but they sound absolutely fantastic, and I couldn’t turn them down.

Have you read any of these? Are any of them on your list?
