Hey bees! I was wondering if anyone can give me some good audiobook recommendations. I work data entry in a mail order pharmacy and we’re allowed to wear headphones to listen to music/radio/etc. I tend to get sick of music after a while and am looking for some new books to listen to.
Ive already listened to the Fifty Shades series, Odd Thomas series, Ellen Degeneres’ book (I forget what it’s called at the moment lol), and I just finished the Hunger Games series.
Any input is appreciated. I tend to enjoy anything, although my favorite would have to be drama. Thanks in advance! 🙂

Commenting to follow. I sit in 3 hours of traffic everyday so I’m always looking for something other than the radio. I am loving some podcasts right now. Have you listened to any like Serial?

Oulanders is great. The sookie stackhouse serious is great. I love the girl with all the gifts. the expanse. World War Z, with it never ended and enders game and enders shadow are great. I am a sysfi girl but if you like the hunger games these all are compairable.

Bird Box is great on audio! It’s kinda of a suspense…I really liked it, a bit creepy though. Somewhat graphic.

no I haven’t but now that you mention it, I do remember a friend mentioned that to me a while ago. Thanks for the reminder! I’ll definitely have to listen!
Darling Husband is big into scifi and he’s rubbed off on me a bit lol. I do remember him mentioning World War Z and Enders Game. I’ll have to keep all those in mind!
I love suspense! It would definitely help my work days get a little more exciting 🙂
Thanks for the suggestions! You’re the second one to mention the outlander series, I’ll check it out!

If you watched the Mindy Project and liked it, then all of Mindy Kaling’s books. She narriates the books herself so you really get her attitude that she’s trying to convey and the comedic appeal.

Where do you get your Audio Books? I finalyl caved and subscribed to Audible with NO regrets. It’s so easy and the choice selection is amaxing.
Currently listening to the 5th wave. It’s got a monotone somewhat depressing vibe to it which I like when I need to zone out but still function good story too even though the movie got bad reviews

I am an audiobook addict and I third the outlander series! The woman who reads it does a wonderful job. I have never listened to a better audiobook. It has replaced harry potter as my favorite series and its one of those books that you read and it leaves a giant hole in you because you know you wont read anything that compares. Im debating starting the series over.
A few others I have enjoyed are Me before You by Jojo Moyes and the Lake House by Kate Morton.

omg all the light we cannot see is also a great book! I read it and the last 50 pages I had to put the book down evey 5 minutes, stop crying, and then tried to get through another few pages.
