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.

I really loved mindy Kaling’s latest book Why Not Me?

For drama I reccomend:

Tell the Wolves I’m Home, A Man Called Ove, The Glass Castle, 
All the Light We Cannot See, and Life of Pi

I also reccomend getting a goodread.com account

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.

Atalanta:  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.
