Summer Reading List

And by reading list, I mean audiobooks, because when does a new mom find time to read a physical book. I'll try to break these down into categories as best I can!

I found out about the Libby app about 4 years ago, and it has been a lifesaver on road trips, travel, listening when the baby is sleeping, or when I just want something on in the background. 

How it works: Go to your local library, apply for a library card, download the Libby app and create an account, follow the prompts to add your library card, and rent E-books and audiobooks for free! Your rental lasts about 14 days, you really cannot beat it. 

I will also link them to Amazon if libraries just aren't your thing. No judgement. I got my card during Covid in Charleston so I never had to step foot inside.  

By genre, these are the books I have rented/listened to since April!
