I am extremely excited about both titles this week and I wanted to share this with everyone! If you’re a fan of audiobooks this is an opportunity not to be missed!
Sync will be offering 2 free audiobook downloads (a YA title and a popular classic) each week this Summer for 12 full weeks! Be sure and check these out on a weekly basis because they will be available for download for that week only (but with no expiration date so you can save them for a later date.) You can find the full summer schedule here.
The Mysterious Howling (The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place #1) by Maryrose Wood Narrated by Katherine Kellgren Found running wild in the forest of Ashton Place, the Incorrigibles are no ordinary children: Alexander, age ten or thereabouts, keeps his siblings in line with gentle nips; Cassiopeia, perhaps four or five, has a bark that is (usually) worse than her bite; and Beowulf, age somewhere-in-the-middle, is alarmingly adept at chasing squirrels. Luckily, Miss Penelope Lumley is no ordinary governess. Only fifteen years old and a recent graduate of the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females, Penelope embraces the challenge of her new position. Though she is eager to instruct the children in Latin verbs and the proper use of globes, first she must help them overcome their canine tendencies. But mysteries abound at Ashton Place: Who are these three wild creatures, and how did they come to live in the vast forests of the estate? Why does Old Timothy, the coachman, lurk around every corner? Will Penelope be able to teach the Incorrigibles table manners and socially useful phrases in time for Lady Constance’s holiday ball? And what on earth is a schottische?
by Charlotte Brontë
Narrated by Wanda McCaddon
Immediately recognized as a masterpiece when it was first published in 1847, Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre is an extraordinary coming-of-age story featuring one of the most independent and strong-willed female protagonists in all of literature. Poor and plain, Jane Eyre begins life as a lonely orphan in the household of her hateful aunt. Despite the oppression she endures at home, and the later torture of boarding school, Jane manages to emerge with her spirit and integrity unbroken. She becomes a governess at Thornfield Hall, where she finds herself falling in love with her employer—the dark, impassioned Mr. Rochester. But an explosive secret tears apart their relationship, forcing Jane to face poverty and isolation once again. One of the world’s most beloved novels, Jane Eyre is a startlingly modern blend of passion, romance, mystery, and suspense.
I haven’t read either of these before (yes, even Jane Eyre) so I’ll definitely be downloading these. Are you excited for this weeks titles? Any in the full schedule that you’re especially excited for? Enjoy!
