Top Ten Audiobooks I Want to Listen to This Year


Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish


1. SINNER: I recently finished the audiobook versions of SHIVER, LINGER, and FOREVER, so I know that this book is going to be excellent. I started it recently, and am loving it so far (such fantastic narrators).

2. PRINCESS OF THORNS: The story sounds great, and the narrator is supposed to be excellent. I have the kindle version, but I hope I can get my hands on the audio instead.

3. FOUR: I've already heard the first story, and I can't wait to get the other three from the library.

4. VERONICA MARS: MR. KISS AND TELL: A Veronica Mars story narrated by Kristen Bell. YOU CAN'T GO WRONG. The first book on audio was great, so I'm sure this will be wonderful too.

5. THE CONSPIRACY OF US: This story sounds fascinating. Definitely on my wishlist!

6. THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER: I keep hearing how incredible this novel is, and I loved the movie, so I'm hoping to start this one soon.

7. DARK TRIUMPH: I loved the GRAVE MERCY audiobook, so I'm curious to see how the sequel is.

8. MORTAL HEART: Same as above!

9. HOW TO SAVE A LIFE: I started this one a couple days ago, and am liking it so far. I can see why so many readers like this author's work.

10. PERCY JACKSON'S GREEK GODS: Already purchased, just waiting for enough free time to start listening!

  4. I'm addicted to audiobooks!! I've read one of the books on your list above, Dark Triumph, and have the ebook version of Mortal Heart to read as well.

    Recommendations: The Secret Lives of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, The Selkie Spell by by Sophie Moss and if you like nonfiction, then The Soloist by Steve Lopez and The Professor and the Madman by Simon Winchester.

    I'm looking forward to listening to the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain this year and just about anything else that captures my interest.

  5. I love audiobooks! They make things like exercising, driving, and getting ready in the morning so much more enjoyable. I often listen to books I've already read, which makes it easier when I forget to pay attention for a few minutes.

    My favorites are Fire (I LOVE the narrator's accent), Seraphina, The Scorpio Races, Harry Potter (read by Jim Dale, my absolute favorite narrator), The Night Circus (also read by Jim Dale), and the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. The Percy Jackson series is also fun on audio.

      Thanks for letting me know your favorites! I'll add them to my list :)

  12. Excellent, love this post!! I would totally love to listen to all of these this year too - especially the latest Veronica Mars. You definitely CAN'T go wrong there!! Also, I adored The Perks audiobook - it really touched me. As for other audiobook recommendations - anything narrated by Kirby Heyborne. I've listened to his audio of Little Brother and Rotters (both from SYNC) - have you? Rotters might be one of my top fave audios of all time!
