My Audible Summer Listening List

I’ve always been drawn to books. I like things that make me smarter. I like being exposed to new ideas. I like thinking. I like the quasi-meditative state my brain enters when I’m reading. I like the way I feel refreshed after finishing a book.

When I was younger I read all the time. Then I went to college and I didn’t have much free time anymore. I was busy taking as many credits I could squeeze into a semester, working, and having a social life. Things didn’t change once I graduated either. I got a job, went back to school at night, studied for various certifications. I lost the time I once used to read. I always told myself I’d get back into reading one day, but I always make myself so busy that I rarely have time to sit down and read a book.

Then I discovered Audible. Audible allows me to get through all the books I want to read – except I don’t need to actually read them. So I can live my busy life and still get my healthy dose of books. Listening while driving. Listening while hiking. Listening while running. Listening while on the metro on the way to work. Listening on the plane. Listening while my eyes are closed. I LOVE Audible and I’m so happy I’m able to go through books like I used to.

  • Born a Crime was beautiful. It’s one book I’m never lending out. I have wanted to read Call Me By Your Name for such a long time and never quite got my hands on it. So much so, a movie got made. HAHA!

    • Call Me By Your Name was the first audiobook I listened to this summer and it was really good! It’s not my usual style at all but I really enjoyed listening to it. I’m listening Born a Crime next!

    • I’m excited to listen to that one. And it is! I really enjoy the flexibility to multitask 🙂

  • What a great list! Some of these have been on my own list for a while (Born a Crime, Sapiens), but I’ll have to bump them up now. I’ve also been debating Audible for a while. I’m glad to hear you’re in the “pro” camp!

    • I keep hearing about those two! They are definitely going to be the next ones I listen to. It took me awhile to try Audible, but I’m so glad I did!

  • On the Road is on my list to read but gosh I never have the time. It’s so hard to take the time to sit still and enjoy a good book! Maybe it’s a time management book I need to be reading! lol

  • I have a few of these on my to read list! Like Turtles All the Way Down and Into the Wild. I’ll be looking into the rest 😊. Thank you for the suggestions! There’s nothing better than a good book ♡

  • I JUST discovered the joy and ease of audiobooks! What took me so long? I’m one happy camper now that I’m being read to while walking or doing chores!

  • And my ‘to read’ list gets ever longer haha.I’m really interested in Into the Wild and Turtles All the Way Down. But you’ve added a ton more to consider! Have you read (or listened to) Six of Crows? It’s marvelous ^^

    • Mine is always getting longer too 😂 I have not, but I think I’ll add it to the list 😁 Thank you for the recommendation!
