[March Check-In]

The 2019 Audie Awards was presented on Mar. 4, 2019. The winner for Audiobook of the Year was Children of Blood and Bone, Tomi Adeyemi narrated by Bahni Turpin. I’ve already mentioned plenty of times that I Had an Audiobook Listening Hangover From Children of Blood and Bone because everything from the story to the narration was incredible. The narrator – Bahni Turpin – has become one of my faves to listen to.

Children of Blood and Bone Audiobook

They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.

Now we rise.

Another literary award presented in March was the 2018 National Book Critics Circle Awards presented on Mar. 14, 2019.The Fiction winner was Milkman, Anna Burns, which I’m reading now. But I have to admit that I’m not enjoying this one. In fact, I have to admit though, I rarely enjoy the fiction award winners for the NBCC award.
