Help Me Pick My Next Audiobook From Audible!

Last Christmas, I received a one year Audible membership from my husband as a gift. This means I am able to download one audiobook for free each month with my year long Audible membership. 

I have so many books that I would love to listen to that it is often difficult to narrow down which one I want to download each month and listen to.

So, I decided to make a post of my five top audiobook titles for the month of June. I'm hoping that you, my blog readers, will help me select which book to listen to next month.

1. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

I have yet to read or listen to a book written by Rainbow Rowell! I've had Fangirl on my reading wishlist for the past year and a half. Is this the novel I should listen to next month?

2. Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

I've heard wonderful thinks about this novel. So, it has once again been sitting in my ever growing reading wishlist for a long time.

3. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

I've never read anything by Shirley Jackson before. The Haunting of Hill House is a classic horror novel that sounds like a good read.

4. Leaving Time by Jody Picoult

I read the novella, Larger Than Life by Jody Picoult, which is the prequel to Leaving Time... I really enjoyed reading Larger Than Life and look forward to the continuation of the story in Leaving Time.

5. The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen

This novel won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. The story/plot sounds like a good one. I've never read anything written by Viet Thanh Nguyen, so look forward to discovering a new to me author.

Leave me a comment below, letting me know which of the above five audiobooks I should download and listen to next month.

Until my next post, happy reading!

UPDATE June 9, 2016: I completely went rogue and selected a completely different book from my reading wishlist this month. For some reason none of the above audiobooks sounded good to me this month... So, I went ahead and chose Nikolai (Her Russian Protector, Book 4) by Roxie Rivera. I've been reading this series and decided to go with the next book in the series.


  1. I confess, I've only read Fangirl out of all of these but I took a look at the others and I think Out of the Easy and Leaving Time would both be really good audio books! I hope you enjoy whichever one you decide on!

    1. Thanks for leaving me a comment, Happy reading to you!!

  2. AAAAHHH! How do I pick?! Fangirl, no...Picoult's book...no.. Ah!
    Okay, okay...I pick Shirley Jackson because spooky books have been calling out to me lately.

    1. Btw, that's awesome that your husband got you a year's subscription to Audible!

    2. Funny, I've been leaning more towards Shirley Jackson's novel too!! I'll be making my selection on Thursday or Friday.

      Yes, thank goodness my hubby knows I love reading and listening to audiobooks. :-)
