Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

I had heard excellent things about a TV adaptation of the book, and decided I should check it out. I really enjoyed the first season, and was reminded the books were good.

When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead

Audiobooks have been our saving grace as we drove 20 minutes to rehearsal four times a week. I was first introduced to this book by The Modern Mrs. Darcy and it caught my eye because A Wrinkle in Time is a major plot point. I’ve heard it made a good read aloud, and was excited to see the audiobook was available from our library.
