Review of Hold Your Breath | Shelf Byte
Caffeine by Michael Pollan ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 Stars Read 1️⃣8️⃣ of 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣0️⃣ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Review: I got this book for free from Audible Originals. I wasn’t too interested I. This book but it was enough motivation for me to attempt to stop drinking coffee. So far I haven’t had any coffee for the last 2 weeks. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Description: Michael Pollan, known for his best-selling nonfiction audio, including The Omnivores Dilemma and How to Change Your Mind, conceived and wrote Caffeine: How Caffeine Created the Modern World as an Audible Original. In this controversial and exciting listen, Pollan explores caffeine’s power as the most-used drug in the world—and the only one we give to children (in soda pop) as a treat. Pollan takes us on a journey through the history of the drug, which was first discovered in a small part of East Africa and within a century became an addiction affecting most of the human species. Caffeine, it turns out, has changed the course of human history—won and lost wars, changed politics, dominated economies. What’s more, the author shows that the Industrial Revolution would have been impossible without it. The science of how the drug has evolved to addict us is no less fascinating. And caffeine has done all these things while hiding in plain sight! Percolated with Michael Pollan’s unique ability to entertain, inform, and perform, Caffeine is essential listening in a world where an estimated two billion cups of coffee are consumed every day. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #caffeine #caffeineaddict #coffee #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #book #audiobook #audiobooks #audible #audibleoriginal #michaelpollan #starbucks #starbuckscoffee #dunkindonuts #📚 @audible (at New York, New York) https://www.instagram.com/p/CBdAVh5gFaR/?igshid=lrtquyy0fm9r
A Certain Hunger by Chelsea G. Summers ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 2.5/5 Stars Read 1️⃣7️⃣ of 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣0️⃣ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Review: The best way I could describe this book as Psycho with a mundane sophisticated cannibalistic edge. This is a very character driven novel and you really shouldn’t expect their to be a huge plot or narrative. My problem with the novel is that it makes cannibalism and murder seem mundane and boring, I guess that makes it more eerie because the main character treats it as so normal. But I didn’t really enjoy this book and I thought about DNFing it multiple times. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Description: ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #acertainhunger #audible #audibleoriginal #audibleoriginals #audiobook #audiobooks #audible #cannibalism #cannibal #psycho #books #book #bookstagram #bookstagrammer (at Brooklyn, New York) https://www.instagram.com/p/CBc84F1gwKV/?igshid=y3nm9b6i9rei
The Getaway by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Read 1️⃣1️⃣ of 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣0️⃣ Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 Stars ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Review: Got this for free from Audible Originals. I really enjoyed this book, it’s really short but I love the reveal, the suspense, and how nuts the bad guy is. I really enjoyed this book and I’m impressed at how short but full of a story it is. I will definitely check out more books from these authors. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Description: In this short thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling authors Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, a young woman’s dream getaway becomes her worst nightmare. Prepare yourself for a transformative experience. Sometimes, life’s setbacks contain hidden gifts. Here at Lakewood, you’ll find the space to unwrap them. A weekend at the Lakewood Retreat is exactly what Chloe Powell needs. Freshly unemployed after her boss loses a reelection campaign, the former press secretary desperately wants a break from the bustle of Washington, DC. A flier posted at her yoga studio leads her to the getaway, which looks amazing: organic meals, celebrity testimonials, and a serene private property within driving distance of the city. It’s so perfect, in fact, that Chloe’s barely bothered by the intensely personal questions she’s asked in her application, or the unnerving social experiments her enigmatic host, Sebastian, imposes on her once she arrives at his remote cabin. But when a mysterious new guest shows up, Chloe can no longer suppress her rising panic: This place is not at all what it seems. A pulse-pounding story from the first minute to the last, The Getaway explores the weight of the small choices we make every day, and their staggering, unintended consequences. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #thegetaway #audibleoriginals #audible @audible #greerhendricksandsarahpekkanen #greerhendricks #sarahpekkanen #shortstory #shortstories #audiobooks #audiobook #books #book #📚 #mysterybooks #thrillerbooks #suspensebooks #audibleoriginal (at New York, New York) https://www.instagram.com/p/CAhmbYeAf-e/?igshid=1v94a8pmhm6j4

Interview With The Robot by Lee Bacon ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Read 3️⃣ of 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣0️⃣ Rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Review: I picked this book up for free from #audibleoriginal and really didn’t know what to expect since it was in the kids section. But let me tell you, this book gave me a new appreciation and outlook towards books aimed at a younger audience. I also really enjoyed the voice acting and the sound effects. I think this would be a great Netflix movie. (Spoiler) Learning David’s backstory is so sad and really visual, it makes him such a great villain because you can see and sorta understand why he blames himself and why he puts his entire life toward recreating his family. The shocking reveal that Emory was actual a robot the whole time and that he also died in the car accident really blew my mind and had no idea that was coming. I really also loved Eve learning how to be human and also embracing her robot side. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Description: A sci-fi adventure for young listeners, Interview with the Robot introduces a unique heroine who seeks the truth about herself. Eve looks like an ordinary 12-year-old girl, but there’s nothing ordinary about her. She has no last name. No parents or guardian. She’s on the run from a dangerous and secretive organization that will stop at nothing to track her down. And most astonishing of all: she’s a robot, a product of Eden Laboratories. When Eve discovers the truth, she realizes everything she thought she knew about herself is a lie. Eve manages to escape, fleeing the lab, the only home she’s ever known. After being arrested for shoplifting, Eve is interviewed by Petra Amis from Child Welfare Services. Her incredible story unfolds during the interrogation, with flashbacks to her life inside Eden Laboratories, which has a dark secret. Listeners follow Eve from her first moment of consciousness to her evolution as a nearly-human companion to Emory, the son of the founder of Eden Laboratories.
