I recently listened to two short audiobooks, and don’t have enough to say about them to make a whole review about them. So I thought I would combine the two 🙂
They have nothing to with each other besides the fact that they are both really short 🙂

I picked this up randomly since I needed a short audiobook that was released more than 10 hours ago. Came across this one, and here we are! This was such a weird book, but what do we expect from a Neil Gaiman book. It was weird, but I enjoyed it so much, mainly because I just had no idea about what to expect most of the time. GoodReads genre names this ‘horror’, I wouldn’t say it is horror, but it is definitely getting on the edge of being scary at times. Also one of the best things about this audiobook is that Neil Gaiman narrates it himself, he just has a perfect reading voice! It is also one of the reasons why I feel in love with his Norse Mythology! Definitely recommend if you want something quick and random!
Time for audiobook number 2.

I mean how could I not have picked up a book with this title? This was also a bit of a weird book, but in a positive way! It is so different from most of the books I read. It shows a perspective on sister love, that I would not consider real. She cares for her sister so much, that she cleans up her murders for her! I loved the way the story was told, how we are recapping previous events, but are also reading about the current events. It was really interesting to see the main characters dilemma when her sister started dating the boy she loves. The reason I took a star is because I think the writing could have been better!
