Audible History – What I’ve Listened to.

img_9179I’m not going to lie – this is a pretty spontaneous post, but after two semi-crazy and nearly unbearably hot days at work, I don’t have the brain capacity to write the book review I had intended to be today’s post.

I’ve been using Audible for about two years now, and I think at this point, I’ve listened to more books this year, than physical copies – and I’m not mad about it. I freaking love audiobooks – they allow me to read while I’m busy at work, getting ready, cleaning, etc.. you get the idea. All the things that take time from sitting down with a book, getting comfy with a mug of coffee or tea, and flipping the pages – audiobooks let me read while doing just about anything.

In the two years since I’ve started listening to them, I’ve amassed quite a bit of a library – the majority of them I’ve really loved, though there have been a few that I just couldn’t get into because of the narrator, the story. I find that the person or persons who narrates the story can make or break it for me.

I thought I’d list all the books I’ve listened to – most of these have reviews which I will link.

So here goes nothing. This might be a little more time consuming than I originally thought. Lol

****Some books won’t have reviews attached. I listened to them during a time when I wasn’t actively blogging – but feel free to comment if you want to know my thoughts!

Let’s start with 2016 –

Unfortunately I couldn’t listen to this in full, the narrator put me to sleep. It’s even more unfortunate because it’s James Marsters.

I’m currently in the middle of listening to this one.

Okay, so I didn’t quite realize how many books I’ve actually listened to. The bad thing is, I own most of these books, if not all of them, in physical form as well. Some of the books have reviews coming, so keep an eye out.

But I think that concludes this very impromptu post about what I’ve listened to on Audible. Feel free to leave recommendations for future reads! Do you have a narrator you really like? Do you prefer fantasy over some other genre, or something else? Are there any authors that are automatic buys?
