How It Went Down - Kekla Magoon, Cherise Boothe, Myra Lucretia Taylor, Brian Hutchinson, Shari Peele, Kevin R. Free, Patricia R. Floyd, Avery Glymph, Korey Jackson, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Peter Jay Fernandez, Ezra Knight
How It Went Down is not a book I would typically ever read, and I certainly would have never picked it up in audio format if I hadn't been gifted it through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers. While I enjoyed reading the story of the search for T's murder, it definitely wasn't something I would seek out again. For one, it just wasn't my type of book. I'm not a big fan of the gang shooting themed books - no idea why, they just don't appeal to me. Perhaps because I haven't had much experience with them. Second, there were so many POV's is had my head reeling! Ya'll know I can barely follow three points of view, not four or five! Regardless of my like-but-not-love of this book, How It Went Down was a turning point in my love of reading. I didn't realize I that I could love I listening to audiobooks. I thought since my memory was so spazzy, I wouldn't be able to follow along, but that was so not my experience - It was actually the writing I couldn't follow. In fact, I've found a way to enjoy doing my pesky chores. Instead of leaving them to the last-minute, I now spend my time finding excuses to do my chores so I can get more audiobook reading in!

So while I wasn't completely sold on How It Went Down, I'm excited to see where my audiobook journey takes me!
