    • Well you might try one; they are excellent for reading while doing other things. It allows me to fit in at least another book every week. Do you have libraries there? I get many things this way. Although, I am also a huge Audible purchaser. And I get many great books for review on audio.

    • Some of these I only want audio because the narrator is so critical to my connection. Or because I love the narrator like Steve West, Kevin Free, Kathleen Gati, Therese Plummer, really they all did a great job. I can’t imagine Harry Dresden without James Marsters. I own all of Harry Dresden on audio.

      I read the Kiss Quotient so that one I can’t say. I’m sure I would have loved it on audio also.

    Although I’ve read several of those, the only one I listened to was Brief Cases – which I loved. My best audiobook of 2018 was Magic Triumphs.

    • I also listened to Magic Triumphs but I read it too, so it ended up on Best Books. Iron & Magic here because STEVE WEST!! Some of the other series are ones I have only done audio because of amazing narrators. It’s so hard to choose. I’m up to 275 books and over 100 audiobooks this year so harder than ever.

  2. I’ve heard so many good things about The Wolves of Winter. Glad you enjoyed it. I’ve been hoping to read the Shusterman series.

    • I only saw it because it was an audible daily deal. I went right out to the library and I LOVE it. I can’t say enough good things about it. I also discovered Neal Shusterman by getting Scythe through an audible daily deal. It’s been a great recommendation source for me. Some I buy but if I can get it at my library I often get it there.

    • Well a little bit we were trying to not overlap. But any which did you could post on Hot Listens, of course. Or we could do a joint review. I particularly recommend The Wolves of Winter as it is just one so far. I really liked it. But they are all top 10!

  3. Spike narrating Jim Dresden… ooo! I MUST get organised and sort out my Audible account – there are far too many lovely audiobooks out there to enjoy. Thank you for sharing.
