Because I #LoveAudiobooks, I’ll be celebrating “June is Audiobook Month” pretty much all month long on my blog, starting with today’s post. For today, I’m featuring some favorite recent listens, what I’m reading now, and a few of the titles on my to-be-read list. I’ll also refer you on to more “June is Audiobook Month” themed festivities you may want to check out elsewhere on the web.
With a 45 minute commute each way to and from work, and with plenty of other opportunities for listening (while doing laundry or dishes, while working out, etc.) when traditional reading just isn’t practical, I find I tend to read more audiobooks than print books lately. And I love every minute of it.
A few of my favorite recent listens include:
- The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers
- If I Live by Terri Blackstock (the conclusion to the If I Run series)
I’m currently enjoying:
- The Heart Between Us by Lindsay Harrel
And eagerly anticipating (on my to be read list):
- Where Hope Begins by Catherine West
- Send Down the Rain by Charles Martin
- Catching the Wind by Melanie Dobson (Audie Award winner in Inspirational Fiction)
I’m always on the lookout for more great reads to add to my to-be-read list, so please share in the comments if you’ve been listening to any great books lately!
To keep the Audiobook Month festivities going, check out the following sites:
- The Audio Publishers Association blog tour will be featuring audiobook themed posts and giveaways all month long.
- There will also be free weekly giveaways at Audiobook.com throughout the month of June, including Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Hauck (June 8th… It’s one of my favorite audiobooks).
- The Sync summer audiobook program offers free weekly audiobook downloads aimed at teens 13+ all summer long. I’m especially intrigued to see that The Curse of Crow Hollow by Billy Coffey has a giveaway scheduled for June 28 – July 4. (Check out this review by one of my favorite bloggers, to see why I’m excited to read it.)
Thanks so much for stopping by to celebrate audiobook month with me! I hope to see you again next week for more audiobook themed fun.
