Audiobook Recommendations

Audiobooks have become a big part of my life.  I can’t remember a day in the past year where I haven’t gone into my audible app and listened to something.

califoreigners audiobook recommendationsWhether I’m commuting to work, mowing my lawn, or flying through the air, audiobooks have turned the most annoying parts of a day into my favorites.  On more than one occasion I’ve sat in my car after a commute just to keep listening to a fantastic book

As of February 2020, I’ve grown my audible library to 217 titles.  If I’ve learned anything over the past few years, it’s that not all audiobooks are created equal.  A great book can easily be ruined by a bad narrator.  Now that I have the Califoreigners blog I wanted to carve out a place on the blog where I could share my audiobook library and give suggestions about what I liked and disliked.

My Preferred Genres

I know everyone has their preferences when it comes to a book, so please take my recommendations with a grain of salt.  I’m a fan of longer audiobooks and tend to lean towards Sci-fi, Fantasy, Thriller, and Survival fiction.  Though, I have found quite a few great books on Audible’s Daily Deals and Sales.  I try to not get anything under 10 hours in length unless it is highly recommended by a friend.

January 2018 Audiobook Reviews
Audiobook Reviews January 2018

2017 taught me that I didn’t have the time to review all the audiobooks I’ve completed individually.  So for 2018, I’m going to create a monthly post with a collection of short audiobook reviews and ratings.

The Martian Audiobook
The Martian Audiobook Review

Even though the book has been out for years and the movie has been seen by millions, I still highly recommend the book. Like all movie adaptations, The Martian movie wasn’t as good as the book.
