Where Are You Reading? Challenge: April Update

Where are You Reading? Challenge
Hosted by Sheila at her blog, Book Journey

FL: Nature Girl (by Carl Hiassen; narrated by Lee Adams)
This title had been in my TBL-Q (To Be Listened to Queue) for a few years and I was eager to have an excuse to move it to the top of the list, listen to it and, clear it from the decks! I've listened to a couple of other titles written by Carl Hiaasen - Hoot (narrated by Chad Lowe) and Flush (narrated by Michael Welch) - which were both Young Adult titles of mediocre caliber. I thought Hiaasen's adult fare would be better; but apparently, I have a knack for picking Carl's less-than-best efforts :-/

GA: A Quiet Belief in Angels (by R.J. Ellory; narrated by Mark Bramhall)
I haven't written the review for this one yet. I'm still mentally processing it. I loved it. I hated it. I'm just not sure what it is I want to say about it; but I will definitely have something up by the end of the week and, I'll include it in next month's wrap-up.

It looks like I'm a bit behind on this challenge. I have several books lined up this month, even knowing that there's no physically possible way I'm going to be able to tackle all of them... but I do have a round trip cross country flight and train trip at the end of the month, so hopefully I'll be able to catch up a little bit:

ID: All Over Creation (by Ruth Ozeki; narrated by Anna Fields)
IN: Raintree County (by Ross Lockridge; narrated by Lloyd James) (tentative)
IA: Shoeless Joe (by W.P. Kinsella; narrated by Grover Gardner)
KS: The Scent of Rain and Lightning (by NancyPickard; narrated by Tavia Gilbert) (tentative)
KY: Coal Miner's Daughter (by Loretta Lynn and Goege Vecsay; narrated by Sissy Spacek)
LA: Black Cherry Blues (by James Lee Burke; narrated by Mark Hammer)
ME: IT (by Stephen King; narrated by Steven Weber)
MD: Patient Zero (by Jonathan Maberry; narrated by Ray Porter)

Plus, I need to get a start on a Minnesota State Audiobook listening challenge - four mystery/thriller titles by the end of June. I have the titles lined up for this one as well:

Immoral (by Brian Freeman; narrated by Joe Barrett)
Stripped (by Brian Freeman; narrated by Joe Barrett)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder (by Joanne Fluke; narrated by Suzanne Toren)
Strawberry Shortcake Murder (by Joanne Fluke; narrated by Suzanne Toren)

I'm currently listening to The Last Striptease (by Michael Wiley; narrated by Johnny Heller) which is set in Chicago, IL.
