Hello fellow bookworms! I hope you’re all having a great day. A few days ago I realized that by now I’ve read my fair share of audiobooks so I thought it would be fun to share my favorites with you all today, in no certain order.
Amanda Noble, #zoolife by Lesa Boutin
I listened to this audiobook when I was just getting into them but it’s easily one of my faves. The story will make you wish you lived in a zoo so if you’re an animal lover (who isn’t?) you’ll adore this book just as I did.
The Pawnee Indians: Proud Yet Peaceful People of the Stars by in60Learning
I always enjoy books by in60Learning. You can read them in less than an hour and they’re always super fascinating. It was the same with this audiobook and I definitely hope to listen to more in the future. This one is especially great if you want to learn more about Native American history + the narrator was a really good one.
Humanism: The Untold Tale by Chirag Patel & Rishabh Prasad
Another nonfiction audiobooks. I don’t think anyone will be surprised by this. If you’re like me and only know the basic things about humanism I think you will enjoy learning more about it. I certainly did. It’s a really interesting topic and the authors taught me a lot. It’s a short audiobook so that’s pretty nice as well.
Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa
This was probably the most surprising audiobook I’ve ever read. I hadn’t read a book by Julie Kagawa since the Iron Fey says and I never finished that series so I was pretty sure I wouldn’t like this book so much. But oh was I wrong! I ended up really enjoying it. It was funny, action-packed and made my heart hurt. Also, I’m currently listening to the sequel which I am enjoying just as much.
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
Of course Artemis Fowl has to be on this list. I’ve listened to the audiobook a few times already and it’s definitely one of the best audiobooks out there. Mayeb I’m biased since this book is my number one favorite of all time but I really do think it’s highly entertaining and I love the accent of the narrator. So fun!
A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer
Now this one requires a little backstory. When I read the first book of this series, A Curse So Dark and Lonely, I didn’t like it at all. I’m not gonna go into the reasons why but I just wasn’t impressed by it. So when the sequel was released last month I decided to give it a try on audiobook instead of buying a physical copy and I fucking loved it. So you see you should never give up on a series after one book you didn’t like. It’s my favorite book of the year so far.
So what are your favorite audiobooks?
Love these recs, I'm trying to start incorporating audio into my routine and I need ideas?
I really need to start on Brigid Kemmerer's series! Over the last year or so I've really been getting into audiobooks. I liked The Golden Compass because it had a full cast recording.
I'll have to remember that. I love full cast recordings! 😀
I have more recs but these are my top favorites!
I love a great audiobook and you are reminding me that there are quite a few that I need to start reading soon! #zoolife has been on my TBR since you last posted about it. 😉
I am so happy that the audiobook for a Heart so fierce and broken worked out so well. I mostly read epic or high fantasy on audiobook but I did read 2 nonfiction audiobooks and really enjoyed reading nonfiction like that, so I should do that more.
