How Do I Survive Morning Commute? Podcasts.

strong opinions loosely held, how i built this, podcasts

Sometimes, I wonder how I survived my morning and evening commute all this time because now those moments are reserved for podcast. I can’t stop listening to them!

Not only during commute, I also listen to them in the office while I’m working, in the bath, and sometimes at night. Basically, I play them whenever I have a little time for myself. Podcast is definitely a great way to discover stories, learn, or even just to have some giggle.  It’s undeniably the hottest media at the moment with more and more podcast companies raising money. Long story short; podcast is here to stay.

If you’ve yet to discover the amazing world of podcasts, I hope the shows I’m going to mention in this post can catch your attention and lead you right into the new world. Headphones at the ready, guys!

Taming Chloe Summers – Anna Katmore | BOOK REVIEW

Title: Taming Chloe Summers
Author: Anna Katmore
Release date: June 21st, 2016

Synopsis

CHLOE:

Camp sucks.

I should be on a plane to London, heading into an epic second year of college. Instead, I’m stuck on Frog Pond Mountain, tasked with supervising a horde of pubescent teens, all because I had some minor run-ins with the law.

But I came here with a plan: next weekend, I’m escaping from the boondocks and swindling my way back into civilization.

Unfortunately, my brilliant plan B couldn’t foresee one tiny detail: Justin Andrews, alpha to the wolves and drool-worthy ghost from my past…

JUSTIN:

I can’t believe Chloe Summers is going to be my co-counselor at camp this year. We haven’t talked in years, and we wouldn’t for the rest of our lives if I had anything to do with it.

But I can’t get out of this summer job. Since I’m stuck with her for the next few weeks, I might as well use the time to get back at her for what she did all those years ago. I mean, camp is supposed to be fun, right? And this could be fun indeed.

But what if a harmless game unexpectedly turns into something more serious?

Reading More Than One Book at Once | BOOKISH

What? Why? Who reads more than one book at once? *raises hand*

Admit it, we’ve all been there. The concept of reading more than one book at a time was a very bizarre thing to understand for me. I used to be someone who only reads one book at a time and will not start reading another book until I finish it. Oh, how time has changed.

For the last couple of years, I’ve found myself stop reading certain books and pick another one up along the way, before continuing the previous book. I don’t know what triggered the change, but it works for me. I had the idea to write this post as I found myself doing it even more often; even right now, I’m in between two out of the three books I recently bought.

So… you might be wondering, WHY DO YOU DO THAT?

Synopsis

A nightmare, I’d told Tamlin. I was the nightmare.

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit—and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well. As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords—and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

Book Haul: European History – The Romanovs & The Borgias | BOOKISH

I finally read some non-fiction, European history books

I went to Singapore two weeks ago for a short weekend getaway and came back with three books. I’m pretty sure some of you are probably like Huh? Only three? I know!

I went to visit my favourite bookstore in Singapore and spent hours in there. I did plan to go crazy and buy as many YA/NA books I can get my hands on until I found myself browsing through history sections. Whaaat? I know. Like I mentioned, bookstore visit is one way of finding new reads and releases in the genre I don’t usually read. This time, it’s all about the history of European royals.

HELP! I Can’t Stop Listening to Podcast! | NON-BOOKISH

I haven’t blogged in a month! This is something that I didn’t realise until I looked at my last blog post and saw that it was posted on June 25th. Insane! A short life update: the last one and a half month has been pretty crazy. I was admitted to hospital for two weeks. That was also two weeks of staring at white walls, wondering when I can go home. I also started a new job so I’ve been very focus on that as well. 

Anyway, back to the fun stuff. In the last month I disappeared,  I found another thing to obsessed over: Podcast. In short, podcast is dubbed as on-demand internet radio; it is a series of digital audio files which you can download and listen to. Thank you, Wikipedia. I think it’s pretty obvious that podcast is really popular at the moment. I’ve seen many people online talk about their favourite podcast shows or even starting their own podcast. Hence, why I decided to share my love for podcast on today’s post.
