Love these ladies!
I just recently discovered this original and love 💕 the discussion and input! Of course, it added to my wishlist big time! Lol I actually was considering stopping audible but now that they have stepped up their game with all the originals with the “podcast” type listening on the subject of books and all the full cast books - audible simply cant be beat! So worth it. :)

Quick Listen on a Variety of Different Genres
I enjoyed listening to the various suggestions in genres I don't tend to listen to. There were definitely some suggestions that I'm adding to my own lists of TBLT!

A Return to the Norm
The new year provides the hosts with an opportunity to clean the slate somewhat. The majority of the titles covered are completely new, which I appreciated, as a number of prior episodes had repeat (and re-repeat) coverage of the same audiobooks. Including the resolutions of other editors was a nice addition. Though there are four people in the booth, there are times when I can't help but feel that the show suffers from a lack of perspectives. Acting as proxies for the rest of the editorial staff is an efficient way to fill the gap.
Additionally, the length of the show has been trimmed back to a more manageable listen. Thank you for that!
These are not professional voice actors (though one of them probably could be), so it is not likely that I will ever rate the performance much higher than this. That being said, there is clear evidence that the hosts and producers continue to push themselves to improve. Along the way, there has been opening music, closing music, and (often funny) intro vignettes added to the show. In this episode, there appears to be a concerted effort to introduce effective segues between host segments. Thank you for continuing to work to add polish to the production.

There are a couple books that I'm excited to listen to a couple books on this list. I like they they have a 2019 listening resolution episode.

3 Women cackling around a microphone
It mas as annoying as fingernails on a chalkboard. I'm actually surprised Audible would release something this poor.
