Becoming by Michelle Obama

I loved this so, so much--especially since she narrated the audiobook.

The Reckoning by John Grisham

I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, it was engaging and suspenseful. On the other hand, about a third of the book was an unnecessary digression.

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik

The beginning of this was so engaging, but I was ready for it to be over by the end.

First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by James R. Hansen

Really well done. The additional of archival audio to the audiobook was unique and amazing.

A World Ablaze by Craig Harline

A World Ablaze: The Rise of Martin Luther and the Birth of the Reformation
I really enjoyed this (although the audiobook's narrator was horrible--I could hear his every inhalation).

A Well Behaved Woman by Therese Anne Fowler

Like reading Downton Abbey (which means I guiltily enjoyed it).

Arctic Homestead by Norma Cobb

Interesting stories; ridiculous political commentary.

Mindset by Carol S. Dweck

Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

I think mindset theory is a great idea, but I wish this book had been a little more academic and a little less anecdotal.
