10 Audiobook Recommendations

Hi and welcome to the reading world!

Lately, audiobooks have been one of my critical ways of being able to still dive into the world of reading while being busier than usual. They are an incredible resource for many readers! If you’re considering getting into audiobooks, I wanted to share 10 recommendations for audiobooks I recently enjoyed!

If you’re looking for platforms for audiobook listening, the two I personally use are Libro.fm and Libby. Libro.fm uses part of the purchase to support an independent bookstore of your choice, and Libby is a free borrowing service based on your library card!

Without further ado, here are my recommendations!

33381433. sy475
We are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby
Adult Non-Fiction, Standalone

This is a standalone memoir in the format of comedic essays. It had me laughing at turns, and also after finishing it wanted to reread again. I also love the this book is narrated by the author, and picking up her other essay collections.

Anxious People by Fredrik Backman
Adult Contemporary/Literary Fiction, Standalone

I’ve read another book by Fredrik Backman before, but I was having trouble getting into Anxious People when I first started it. So when I picked it up again later on audiobook, I was surprised to find myself quickly drawn into the story and really found the book becoming a read I loved after the audiobook was so engaging.

Patsy by Nicole Dennis-Benn
Adult Contemporary/Literary Fiction, Standalone

Patsy is already a contender for my favorite read of the year, and the audiobook was incredible. The narrator was excellent, and getting drawn into the story this way also left me so excited to know what happened next.

The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
Adult Historical Fiction, Standalone

This was actually one of the first audiobooks I ever listened to a sample of, and I knew I wanted to read the entire story in this format afterwards. I love the narration of this one, and also the story itself came together with different perspectives and timelines in such an interesting way.

With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo
Young Adult Contemporary Fiction, Standalone

Elizabeth Acevedo narrates this herself, and it is going to be very difficult for me to find a YA novel I love more this year.

55361205. sy475
A Promised Land by Barack Obama
Adult Non-Fiction, #1 in The Presidential Memoirs series

A current read, it is so interesting to hear about a former President’s memoirs through his own narration.

Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson
Young Adult Historical Fiction

The narrators for this book were all excellent, and the story was one I went into not knowing almost anything about and I was amazed. Definitely an emotional and impactful read.

9969571. sy475
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Adult Sci-Fi, #1 in the Ready Player One series

Another current read (I tend to have 5 books I’m reading at once lol), this audiobook is narrated by Wil Wheaton and it’s exciting to finally read a modern sci-fi I’ve heard so much about!

The Prophets by Robert Jones, Jr.
Adult Historical Fiction, Standalone

This story has incredible writing and hearing it as an audiobook was such an interesting way to experience the writing style and story.

50196744. sx318 sy475
Know My Name by Chanel Miller
Non-Fiction, Standalone

My last current audiobook read, Know My Name is a tough one to get through. Chanel Miller is sharing her story as the narrator, and it is difficult to hear about all she went through, but something I am finding incredibly important.

So, there are my 10 recent reads audiobook recommendations! I should probably find a way to shorten the title. If you enjoyed this, let me know in the comments and I’ll be happy to share more in the future!

Thanks for stopping by!
