My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler

I’m definitely hit or miss when it comes to audiobooks. I went into this book having never heard of Chelsea Handler before, I was intrigued by the title of the book.

It was hilarious!!! She was blunt, honest, and didn’t hold back. I love that she is not ashamed of her past and embraces it wholeheartedly. I definitely want to learn more about her now.

It’s still looked down upon for a woman to enjoy men, whereas it is celebrated for men to enjoy women. The fact that Chelsea shared her experiences, is a breath of fresh air. She has nothing to be ashamed of and she empowers others to not be ashamed of who they are, and to not feel embarrassed if they don’t live to “society’s expectations”

I could listen to her stories all day long.

Side note: how cute is this gargoyle from SofiasClayCorner?! Her name is Ginny 🙂

You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day

If you have the choice to either read this book or to listen to the audiobook….listen to the audiobook! Narrated by Felicia Day, I couldn’t stop laughing during the vast majority of the book.

I first discovered Felicia Day with her role in Eureka and thought she was incredible and hilarious. When I saw her audiobook on Audible, I knew I had to give it a try. When I saw that it was read by her as well, the decision was simple.

Prior to listening to this audiobook, I did not know anything about Felicia Day (sorry, Felicia!) beyond her role on Eureka (awesome TV show!). Now, I absolutely love her.

One of my favorite things about this book was that she presented her opinions and experiences without being derogatory or offensive in anything that she said. She did not get political, she did not bash anyone, she simply told her story and did it in a hilarious and relatable way. As someone who experiences anxiety and panic attacks, Felicia made me feel normal and not alone. If someone as powerful and experienced as her still experiences insecurities, why should I feel less for feeling the same way? Felicia inspires hope and determination in those that need it.

Felicia did not have anything handed to her, she has worked hard for all of her success. She has overcome adversity (both internal and external) to be successful in her passions.

I hope Felicia writes more books. Even if they aren’t memoirs, I would be very interested in reading any kind of work that she creates. Even though I am not a gamer, I will be checking out The Guild simply because I enjoy Felicia and I am intrigued to see how she input her own personality into the show.

Without a doubt, this is an audiobook that is well worth the listen! You won’t want to pause it and you will try to listen to it in one sitting. Thankfully, my normal commute is 45-60 minutes and this audiobook kept me entertained for every moment.

Felicia, can I please meet you and be your friend?!

Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye

You know the saying “don’t judge a book by its’ cover”? Well, I definitely do. For better or worse, if a cover catches my eye, I want to give it a try.

I was browsing Audible one day when this cover caught my eye along with the title: Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye. Now, lately I’ve been in a biography/memoir mood for my  audiobooks. Especially when they are read by the author. I’ve tried different fiction works but they simply haven’t been keeping my attention lately. Until now.

Elizabeth Michaels did a great job at making Victoria Laurie’s first installment of the Psychic Eye Mystery series come alive. She kept my attention throughout the entire book and kept me so entertained that I didn’t even switch to Pandora radio during my commute. Not an easy feat lately to be honest.

This book took a new look on psychics/intuitives. I loved the way Abby stayed true to herself and I found her and Dutch to be incredibly amusing. Probably not the way their relationship was intended to come across, but I was amused all the same.

I am definitely interested to see more of the sisterly dynamic between Abby and Kat as well as to see the relationship between Abby and Dutch develop. I’m sure Abby’s next adventures will be just as captivating as this one. And I will definitely be continuing this in audiobooks.
