    Hmmm… looking over these lists, I don’t see too many that I also listened to. I’ll be putting together some of my favorite audiobooks as part of my audiobook year-end check-in later this month. It will be interesting to see which rise to the top. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I can tell I’m not listening as much as I used to. I’m only familiar with one book on these lists, Fated Blades by Ilona Andrews. I’ll have to look into all of these books. Glad you all had so many wonderful listens this year. I hope you have as many, if not more, next year.

    • We all go in cycles. In November I had nearly all ebook ARCs which drove me crazy. In January, I have almost all audio ARCs which is sort of better but a balance is the best. There just tend to be certain books or certain narrators I want to read or listen so sometimes I just have the imbalance.

  3. Sounds like you all listened to some great audiobooks. I had some great audio reads this year as well, like SJ Pajonas’ Flyght series which I re-read in audio, as well as Murder at the Taffy Shop and The Fire Prophecy. I didn’t listen to as many audio this year, so picking 10 would be relatively easy.

    I listened to 3 of yours Anne-In Her Tracks, Stolen Hours and Win. I loved them all too. I haven’t listened to any of the others listed. I’ll have to look some of them up.
