Without the faintest idea how to run a hotel (she can barely run her own life), Lottie must impress the picky hotel reviewer and his dysfunctional family who are coming to stay over Christmas. Without the rating only he can bestow, Aunt Kate will lose her livelihood.

2014 Audiobook Challenge Wrap Up

Last year I listened to 46 audiobooks. This year I barely hit 30.

I don't know what happened with my reading in general this year, I hit a slump and never really got out of it completely.
Audiobooks shouldn't have an excuse since, as I've mentioned before, I listen to them while working in class but in sometimes I just was not in the mood to sit and listen.
Or I couldn't get in to the story.
I have a lot of unfinished books this year.
