9 Do you #loveaudiobooks? Check out my recommendations and enter to win a few of your own.


Holiday travel season is about to begin, so weather you're flying, driving, or taking the train, it's a great season for audiobooks A good audiobook speaks volumes. and if you need some help picking some out this holiday season, I have a few suggestions.


I know I recommend this series often, but it's just so awesome that it fits in practically every list I make. If you're traveling with kiddos, this audiobook would be perfect. Jim Dale narrates the entire series. He does an amazing job!




If you think the movie is great, you should read the book! Agatha Christie is the Queen of Mystery and it's no secret why. The girl knows how to write! There are many recordings of this book available, but the two narrators I would recommend are Dan Stevens (from Downton Abbey) and Kenneth Branagh. They both do an excellent job.





I've read Jane Eyre about ten times in my life, but I had never listened to it in audiobook format before. So this year, I decided to re-read Jane Eyre as an audibook. It's narrated by actress Thandie Newton, and she's brilliant! Listening to an audiobook of books that you've read before gives you a new experience, almost as if you're reading the book for the first time.



Lincoln in the Bardo, winner of the Man Booker Prize, is a pretty fantastic book. It has "166-person full cast features award-winning actors and musicians, as well as a number of Saunders' family, friends, and members of his publishing team." Don't quote me on this, but I think it has the largest cast ever for an audiobook. It's well worth a listen!


Perhaps you're looking for something with a little more romance and humor in it? Then may I direct you to practically anything by author Julia Quinn. She writes the best books! And she has the best narrators too! How to Marry a Marquis is narrated by Rosalyn Landor. She brings Quinn's characters to life. This is a highly enjoyable series. Though not really safe for kids. You better wear earbuds with this one.



The Gentleman was one of my favorite audiobooks that I listen to this year. I even gave it to my husband to listen to even though this is not his usual kind of book. He LOVED it! It's hilarious! It's narrated by Samuel Roukin and John Keating, who seem to embody the characters perfectly! This book is always high on my recommendation list.
