5 Favorite Audiobooks I’m Telling My Friends About!

Sharing is caring!

Choosing my 5 favorite audiobooks wasn’t easy! But listening to them is an easy way for me to find more reading time. There are so many books I want to read it’s hard to get to them all!

I know it feels like Summer is almost over, but it’s not! We still have plenty of time to enjoy the warm weather. Here on the Jersey Shore, we call September our local summer! It’s when all the tourists go home, and we have the beaches and restaurants to ourselves.

I do love the energy that the summer season brings, and of course, many of our small businesses depend on it, but there is something sweet about the quietness the cooler weather brings. Everyone slows down and prepares for the Fall.

Any time, but especially during the local summer, I love to head down to the beachfront with a good audiobook and walk the boardwalk. I try to do it every day as part of my routine. I read an article a long time ago that everyone should take an hour a day to get some exercise. It has stuck with me and relives the guilt I sometimes feel about taking time for myself.

It’s so important to practice self-care because of the emotional and physical health benefits it offers. Here’s an article you may find interesting on the topic because we all want to be successful, whatever that may be. As an avid reader, I use audiobooks as a way to help me achieve my goal of exercising and reading every day.

“It’s about getting in shape, inside and out, to tackle the most important challenges. It’s about creating patterns in your life that bring about the best you possible.”

I have a monthly subscription to Audible and love it. It’s easy to use, and they have great customer service. However, there are other apps, such as Google Play Books and Scribd, but I haven’t tried either. Also, most libraries have a wonderful selection of audiobooks.

5 Favorite Audiobooks I Can’t Stop Listening To!

This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger

Why I like it: The narration was excellent and added much to the story. The author was inspired by Huck Finn, which is apparent as this story takes place on the Mississippi River. It’s a fantastic coming-of-age story.

Summer of ’69 by Elin Hilderbrand

Why I like it: This book is a combination of historical fiction, family drama, and a beach read. It’s a nice light read but has enough substance to keep you interested. I did feel like I was transported to Nantucket.

The Invisible Life Of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

Why I like it: This book is original and fresh and the narration is superb! I’m not usually a fan of time travel or romance, but this book really surprised me. The story was intricately woven together and the characters came to life. It’s one of my favorite books.

A Woman Is No Man by Etaf Rum

Why I like it: This book offers you a glimpse into the Arab/American woman and her struggle to assimilate to American life. Women’s issues are at the forefront of today’s news and this story shines a light on several of them. Also, If you enjoy learning about different cultures you’ll find this an interesting read.

The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave

Why I like it: This book is a quick read great for a vacation or sitting on a beach. However, it is a mystery filled with family drama, love, and relationships, so it will keep you guessing.
