264. Our Top 25 Favorite Audiobooks

Powered by RedCircle

Jesse and I are doing something a little bit different this week and are talking about some of our favorite audiobooks! Summer is a great time for reading, and I especially love audiobooks. Whether you’re looking for a way to pass time while cleaning, cooking, or driving, or you simply want to enjoy more books without sitting down with a physical copy, this episode will hopefully give you lots of recommendations that will enrich your listening library!

I have gotten so many requests for recommendations, so Jesse and I have compiled a list of our favorites. I have managed to narrow my list down to 20 (okay, maybe a few more), while Jesse has some great picks too! By the end of this episode, you’ll have close to 25 must-listen audiobooks, ranging from captivating fiction to eye-opening historical narratives.

While I don’t want to spoil all of the titles here, just to name a few, we mention Lisa Wingate’s Before We Were Yours, The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris, Shelby Van Pelt’s Remarkably Bright Creatures, The President Is Missing and The President’s Daughter (both by James Patterson and Bill Clinton), The Last Bookshop in London by Madeline Martin, and so many more!

If, like me, you love listening to audiobooks, then this episode is definitely for you! Please feel free to reach out! I would love to hear what some of your favorites are!
