JIAM post: Best Audiobooks


Today I thought I would talk about the best audiobooks I have listened too. To be fair, there are not that many and like 90% have been in the last year ;) But then it has been one good year!


If I were to recommend a book I would go with an entire series. I freaking LOVE Heartstrikers by Rachel Aaron. They just got better and better and better and BETTER! You HAVE to listen to them. Trust me I could do this in all caps all day long....ALL DAY LONG! THis series wins best audio, best series, best everything for eternity.


These two are contemporary romance. I loved Runaway Groom by Lauren Layne because it was so funny! I like a book that makes me snort.
Irresistible you by Kate Meader was hot and it made me realise how much more I like certain books in audio.


Asking for it by Louise O'Neill is one difficult book to listen to. It pulls at your heart, at your sanity. It makes you want to rage against the world. To cry and to feel. It is one of those you have to listen to even though it is really hard.


It seems I have a tendency to fall really hard for YA when it comes to audio. How come? I have no idea. They are just funny, cute and a joy to listen too. Maybe the lightness is the answer and when it comes to reading I do not always feel that.

Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett cos that is how a YA contemporary should be like!
Summers at Castle Auburn by Sharon Shinn because even though not a lot happens I just loved the easy light vibe.
The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich cos it sent shivers down my spine.
A corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty cos it was cute.
Enchanted by Alethea Konthis is one that I listened to before I even fell in love with audio so it must have been good ;)


At this precise moment I have not finished When Dimple met Rishi by Sandhya Menon, but it is so funny! It has to be on this list.

Wow, ok that was a lot of YA. What can I say, YA works when it comes to audio. They screamed talk about us when I wrote this post

    1. Hmmm, which one would you hate the least....I dare not recommend Heartstrikers cos I love them!
      But maybe you could do The Dead house

  5. Vikas Adam did a great job with Heartstrikers. I find that a good narrator is what makes an audiobook memorable :)

  6. I'll have to give the Rachel Aaron series a try. I also loved When Dimple Met Rishi on audio! I read Starry Eyes, but I bet the audio was really good! :)

  9. Ha, I think you've got me convinced on your dragon series, there. I've been following yours and someone else's reviews on those and have them on the list.

    That's funny about YA. I think the genre I love better on audio is sci-fi for some reason.

  10. I'm not listening to many audios these days. While I was working, I listened in the car. Now that I'm home, I'm reading a ton of ebooks.

  13. I love your choices. Enchanted is the first audio I listened to that started my audio journey. I read Kate's book but bet it rocked on audio!

      Oh it was SO good on audio

  14. Wow... I haven't listened to ANY of those! Or even heard of many. What is wrong with me? I can't even remember my own name after I wake up in the morning.
