Missoula is a heavy subject so I started The Goblet of Fire to listen to when I needed breaks.

Today was the day of DNFs. I gave 3 audiobooks a try and they were all on my TBR for a long while. I’m not sure if it was the narrator or the subject matter. I’m not entirely sure if I’ll really give any of them a try again, unfortunately.

Seven Women and the Secret of Their Greatness by Eric Metaxas – 45 minutes
Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein – 38 minutes
The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepore – 21 minutes

Challenge – Mix ‘n Match : go here for the instructions

I did a Harry Potter theme and one my husband did because he wanted to play. All the books were pulled from our bookshelves.

Harry Potter:

Sorcerer’s Stone : whispering
Chamber of Secrets : Fred
Prisoner of Azkaban : tea
Goblet of Fire : eleven
Order of the Phoenix : gloomy
Half-Blood Prince : dustbin
Deathly Hallows : midnight
Cursed Child : want
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them : pearly
Quidditch Through the Ages : supporters
The Tales of Beedle the Bard : descendant

The gloomy dustbin wanted to have midnight tea with the pearly supporters whispering about the eleven descendants of Fred.

My Husband’s List:

Moby Dick :  supernatural
Blood Meridian : feast
A People’s History of the United States : workers
Slaughterhouse-Five : lifting
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close : weekends
The Great Gatsby : search
The Rules of Attraction : tripping
Old Man & the Sea : cut
Dune : evidence
Invisible Monsters : three
Animal Farm : Napoleon

The supernatural feast of cut workers finds evidence of Napoleon tripping.
