Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Currently, I’m in the midst of reading Daisy Jones & The Six on audio. This is easily one of the best audiobooks I’ve ever listened to and it’s blowing me away. Personally, I’ve never been a big audiobook listener but I’m trying to give them a fair chance.
I decided to make this post for two reasons. First, I decided to give Scribd a try again so I don’t want to waste it. The second reason is that I want to hold myself accountable. If I had a list that I can check off, then I know I’ll be more successful. That being said, let’s get into the books I NEED to read on audio.
5. The Princess Diaries
When I was younger, I really loved The Princess Diaries series. However, I haven’t revisited it since then. I do eventually plan on doing a reread but I know I want to listen to the first book on audio. First, it’s not a very long audiobook, not even 7 hours (I think?) and it’s narrated by Anne Hathaway. I know celebrity narrators aren’t everyone’s favorite thing but I think she’d do a fabulous job.
4. Let Me Hear A Rhyme
At first, I was stumped when I was coming up with this list until I remembered that I should check my library. One of the books I most recently put on hold was Let Me Hear A Rhyme by Tiffany D. Jackson. I’ve only read her debut but I really loved it and I know this one focuses on music. My library has so many audiobook options, but this one really caught my eye.
3. Don’t Date Rosa Santos
This is another new release and one that I’m not 100% sold on. Instead of rushing out to buy the books, I’d rather borrow it from the library as an audiobook. Of all the magical realism I’ve read, I’ve liked most of them. I just don’t know if I want to take a chance on this one so I’m going to try this one on audio. It’s only like a 9-hour audiobook too so once again, another short one.
I feel like it’s blasphemy that I haven’t read this book yet. It’s such an iconic book and I think it blazed the trail for the future. I’m pretty sure this book focuses on a girl who is raped and how the trauma of what happened manifests into her life. I’ve never read anything by Laurie Halse Anderson and I’m excited to give her a chance!
The last book is one that might surprise some people. I know that Roald Dahl is a beloved children’s author but his book never interested me when I was younger. Now that I’m older, I want to revisit some of these authors I brushed off. Last year, I listened to The Witches on audio and it was perfect. I knew I had to give another one of his books a try and I couldn’t think of a better one than Matilda.
I’ve never read it before and I think it’s only right to read one of his most beloved. If I remember correctly, this one has a celebrity narrator. If not, oh well. Either way, I’m excited to get to this one.
Those are some of the books I want to read on audio. Do you have any books you’d recommend on audio? I’d love to hear your suggestions!
