Six More Audiobook Recommendations

Last October, I wrote a blog post with six audiobook recommendations. But I listen to a lot of audiobooks, and I have discovered so many new, great audiobooks since I made that post. Thus, I wanted to take some time to circle back around to the topic. If you are new to audiobooks, these are all great books to get you started! (If you’re new to audiobooks, you can also check out my where to listen to audiobooks post to get you started.) On the flip side, if you are a seasoned audiobook lover, I have no doubt that you will also love the ones on this list. Originally this was going to be a list of five books, but I just couldn’t choose so I ended up with six! These are all audiobooks that I listened to and rated either four or five stars, and for which I thought the audiobook experience was really well done.

I haven’t been listening to a lot of YA audiobooks recently, so you will find that these are all adult books. However, I did include a mix of fiction and nonfiction, so hopefully you will be able to find something you are interested in! I also want to note that nearly all of the content warnings are from my memory, they are not necessarily an exhaustive list, but I also couldn’t find a lot of other sources for them.

Luckily for you, I know how you can avoid paying Amazon $15 a month and still listen to great audiobooks.

Six Great Audiobooks for your TBR

I only started listening to audiobooks two years ago. Before that, I always thought I didn’t like them. Not in a they-don’t-count-as-real-reading way but more in a I-don’t-like-when-narrators-voices-don’t-sound-like-I-image-the characters-would kind of way. My first audiobook that I listened to all the way through was Rebel Belles, and since then I have branched out a lot and I have learned to love audiobooks. I listen to them while getting ready, while cooking, while walking, and while falling asleep. They are great whether you want to multitask, or just want to sit down and listen to a great story.

I know that I am always on the hunt for my next audiobook, so today I want to share with you six of my favorite audiobooks, perfect whether you are a seasoned audiobook fan, or first venturing into the foray of audiobooks.
