I've been reading, well, listening, to a lot of audiobooks while painting recently and have really, really enjoyed some I want to share. So, if you like "sci-fi/fantasy" like I do put these on your list:
Shades of Gray by Jasper Fforde -A good one for artists as it's all about color. There are good reviews on Goodreads. I'm going to start his Thursday Next series soon. He writes somewhat akin to Terry Pratchett if your familiar with Terry's work with that same sort of funny quirkiness.
The Scorpion Rules and its follow up The Swan Riders by Erin Bow. I enjoyed these books so much I read them twice in a row.
100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith. This one blindsided me and had me laughing and crying at the same time. I also read his Grasshopper Jungle which was weirdly different but enjoyable.
White Cat by Holly Black from her Curse Workers series. I want to see this series turned into a television show! What fun that would be! I suggest listening to the audiobooks as they are read by Jesse Eisenberg and he just makes the characters come alive!
Ok. Back to painting and listening! Cheers!
