Small Great Things Jodi Picoult really REALLY enjoyed and I struggle with audiobooks at times.
Audra McDonald was amazing!
Lincoln in the Bardo

I gave up on the audio, but I had the feeling I would have undersood it better if I was reading it.
A Gentleman in Moscow
Im reading that right now!
Loved this book!
Red Rising series
I’ve heard Born a Crime is great! And I loved The Help on audio.
It was so great to hear Trevor Noah read his story. He is fabulous with all the different African dialects.
@Susan I wish I had known that when I read the book. I liked the book-I really did-but those in my book club who listened to it were so much more passionate about their love for his story.

This was a very nice surprise for me, loved it!
What Happened by Hillary Clinton.
Just got this from Audible.
The Girl Who Drank the Moon
A Little Life
IT. I don’t like SK and didn’t find IT remotely scary but IT was excellent on audio! If only for the “coming of age” aspect alone IT was great!
Not My Father’s Son, Alan Cumming’s memoir and Anansi Boys
I liked Anansi boys so I’ll make a note of the other one, thanks
They are very different books, but if you are familiar with and like Alan Cumming, his story is very interesting.
i read Alan Cumming’s memoir – it was good!
Loved Anansi Boys!
The game of thrones series by a long shot and I’ve listened to over a hundred
Loved this, so well narrated.
Lincoln in the Bardo. The cast was over 100 people, and Nick Offerman and David Sedaris are the main two voices. I feel like the book was written for audio. Brilliant.
I’d second that pick!
Ah – this is on my book club’s list next year. I’ll be sure to listen. I LOVE David Sedaris.
Harry Potter and the ….well, all of them really!
A view from the cheap seats
The Help, The Hobbit, A Dirty Job, Outlander series, The Book Thief… ?
The good daughter
I know it so stupid but i’d love reading the most i mean actual reading even though its on Kindle or Ibooks it so much more.
I agree. But for people with sight impairment, audible books are a Godsend!
Now i understood ? thats a much hell idea they are able to read you a book, i guess you’re a better listener
I like to listen when I am driving or out walking, but I always have the actual book as well and read when I am not listening! Lets me get through books faster and try and make a dent in the TBR stack!

It. The Shining. Chasing the Devil. Different Seasons. When the game was ours. Deviant.
I’ve listened to lot of books this year, but the most impressive has been Roxane Gay’s Hunger – the memoir of my body. She reads it herself, a must-listen for everyone, stuggling with their bodies or not.
