Hi dear friends,

I have the BEST FRIENDS!

Want a proof?

First Melanie one of my dearest friends that I made years ago on Goodreads contacted me to ask for a “best audiobooks” post as she wanted some recommendations to listen to on long drives. So basically she gave me the idea for this post!

There was only a slight problem: I never listen to audiobooks!

But I aim to please and wanted to help Melanie.

I did the best thing: reach out to another good friend on Goodreads who is a HUGE FAN of audiobooks: Pam Nelson!

She told me that she had listened to more than 400 audiobooks in 2018, mostly romance and only asked for twenty minutes to get back with her “Top 20 audiobooks listened to in 2018”.

Only twenty minutes after I had all the information for my post!

I told you, the best friends!

So a huge thank you to Pam (you will find her links below if you want to follow this very friendly, sweet and honest woman!) I owe you big time!

  1. Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are my favorite female and male narrators so I can’t wait to pick up Gentleman Nine. I keep looking at Riven on Amazon but haven’t one-clicked it (yet). That cover just does something for me. 🙂

  2. I would let Sebastian York read me his shopping list. I love him! I listen to 2-3 audiobooks a week, mostly romance, and he is a narrator, who stood out for me.

    1. Funny sam but another blogger friend told me he was the best! He is also a mystery as no one knows who is hiding behind the voice LOL

  3. Wow, okay, I really am missing out and need to get into listening to more audio books. Thanks for such a great list to chose from to get me started!

    By the way, have a fun-filled New Year celebration, and all the best for 2019 to you and your family! xx

    1. Alexandra I hope that list will help you find some good ones! I’d say to begin with Kristin Hannah or Sadie maybe?

  4. What a nice list!! I’ve been thinking of reading Bone Music for a while… especially as an audiobook. So good to know it’s a good one! Haven’t been hearing much about it lately!

    1. Well I can’t listen and do something else at the same time. Reading in English is as easy as French (my mother tongue) but listening to audiobooks in English still asks for complete focus. So I just feel silly looking at nothing and just listening. I’d rather read 😉
