Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.
This week’s TTT is: All About Audio freebie — aka top ten audiobooks you should listen to, 10 books I want to listen to on audio, 10 bands you should check out, 10 podcasts you should be listening to, 10 of my all time favorite albums, 10 songs I love, really whatever you can come up with.
I’m definitely an avid audiobook listener but I don’t think I listen as much as other people! I always have one going for the most part, unless I need a break. I usually have a pretty good idea what’s on deck for me to listen to immediately when I finish another one, but sometimes I’m scratching my head about what to get next. I primarily use audiobooks if I whispersync from Amazon, the old audiobooks on my Audible account I bought before cancelling, and – most importantly – Hoopla from the library. They have a fantastic selection for YA books and lots of popular adult ones too. When Scribd switched to non-unlimited, I put that account on pause. Regardless, here are ten audiobooks on my radar that I plan on listening to sometime very soon!
On Hoopla through the Library
Forever, Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid • This is the last TJR book I need to read. No pressure or anything considering how much I LOVED every one of her other books. I know this is basically everyone’s least favorite but still everyone gave it 4 stars or higher. I love her audiobook narrators so I plan on checking this one out.
Reunion by Hannah Pittard • I was so excited about this book before I saw the reviews come in. It doesn’t have a very high rating, but maybe it’ll be a good audiobook to get distracted by. I absolutely love Julia Whelan as a narrator (she does the TJR books!) so I think that will totally make this book even better.
Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian • I definitely forgot that this book was on Hoopla. I said recently that I wanted to read this series by the end of the year, so this is a great way to do it! I’m actually really excited now. I love Jenny Han and this is her last book (series) I need to read!
One Paris Summer by Denise Grover Swank • I have an eARC of this one but haven’t pulled it up yet. Maybe if I listen to the audiobook sometime this year it’ll motivate me to write the review and cross it off my ARC pile? I’ve never listened to the narrator before so we’ll see.
Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman • I’ve had these on my TBR for so long and have recently wanted to get into historical fiction. I think these will be a great place to start, since I find that period of history fascinating.
The Heir and The Crown by Kiera Cass • So clearly this series is not my favorite, which is why I’ve waited so long to read the companions and finish it off. I do plan on listening to these sometime just to call it a day, but I’m not in a huge rush. Hopefully they’ll stay on Hoopla so I don’t have to spend money…
On my Audible Account
Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando • I’ve had this one on my account forever and was dying to read it when it first came out. I saw some mixed reviews but recently noticed a lot of my bloggy friends loved it. I’m excited to finally listen to this one! It’ll be good to do this month once I finish the ToG binge.
Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen • All of my friends seem to love this series but I haven’t taken the plunge. There are lots of intriguing elements but none that are exactly up my alley. It’s historical fiction and a Robin Hood retelling. I also have been trying to get a series and read it one after the other, so we’ll see.
I Was Here by Gayle Forman • The reviews were pretty mixed on this so it’s been sitting there waiting. I don’t remember why I used an Audible credit on this book, but it was probably wasted lol. I haven’t heard any reviews on the audio yet so we’ll see! It’s the only Gayle Forman book I still need to read I think.
