  1. Laurel-Rain Snow

    I loved The Wife Between Us…and can’t wait to read Karen White’s newest book. Enjoy your week…and thanks for hosting.

  2. JJ @ This Dark Material

    Congrats on staying ahead of your Goodreads goal! I can never read a book for the first time via audiobook—the details just don’t stick with me the way traditional reading does. I do have a few favorites that I’ll listen to on occasion because I like the narrator so much…and I don’t have to worry about missing out on something important!

      When I first began listening I would need to sit perfectly still and listen with earbuds to stay focused. Now I can do almost anything and listen.

  3. Greg

    Happy audiobook month! I should take the oppo to try audio again. 🙂 And yay for 16 books- that’s pretty awesome. Curious what you’ll think of Scalzi’s book- I read my first book of his alst year and liked it.

    Have a super week Kimba!

  4. Michelle Gilmore

    Happy audiobook month! I think most of my books are audios these days, which is such a shift from a couple of years ago when I could barely focus on them.

  5. Literary Feline

    Yay for being ahead in reading goals! I need to pick out my next audiobook. I actually listened to one last month, Albeit it was a short one. At least three of the books on your list to review this coming week are either on my TBR or wish list. I look forward to reading your thoughts on them. I hope you have a great week, Kim! Thanks for hosting.

  6. Wattle

    I hope you enjoy your audiobook month 🙂 I still have sooo many on my…digital shelves…that I have to listen to. Too many books (and lack of being able to concentrate, heh). Have a wonderful week ahead!

    LifeL1k3 was a huge hit for me, as was the Wife Between Us. So I am looking forward to your thoughts! Excited to learn about your new audio book review program! I signed up and cannot wait to learn more 🙂

    • Kimberly

      Fantastic. I will be sending out an email in the next month with a couple audio offers for review.

  8. Jenea’s Book Obsession

    I have such a hard time with audiobooks, but I did make it through one just recently. I looked like a crazy woman when I laughing at the characters. Lol… Enjoy your Sunday.!!

    • Kimberly

      Hehe. You get better as you listen. In the beginning, I used earbuds and sat while listening (to concentrate) Now I cook, clean, walk, garden and more while listening, You basically re-train your brain.

  9. Melliane

    that’s a nuce idea for the autdiobook service, if only it wasn’t complicated for me…

  10. Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books

    Enjoy your audiobooks and good luck with your challenges!
    I can’t do audiobooks. Everything about them annoys me. However, the little dude and the professor love them. Each to their own, eh?!

    Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books recently posted: Weekly Update #14
    • Kimberly

      Yes. I will be honest in the beginning I had trouble, but a great story and narrator hooked me. Glad the dude and professor enjoy them.

  11. Jolene Wilson

    I have been listening to the Harry Potter books on audio book. I will have to start the third one this month in honor of Audiobook month! Enjoy all your books and have a great week.

    • Kimberly

      I really enjoyed it as well Yvonne. I got a copy of The Wife Between Us and plan to read soon.

  12. hillary

    I am sooooo excited that this year I can participate in JIAM! I never in a million years would have thought I would be able to but these implants are AMAZING!

  13. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    No new reads?! Wow!! Go you!! Lol! It’s always a nice break when that happens, though a part of me is still sad on the no newness to add to my shelves. Not that I have room for them anymore! Lol! Hope you enjoy the break to your TBR pile!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  14. Lola

    Sounds like May was a good reading month for you and yay for staying ahead of your Goodreads challenge. I hope you’ll have fun with the audiobook month!

  15. Chrissy

    Way to go on your Goodreads challenge!!! I’m behind, but I’m sure I’ll get caught up or ahead this summer. I need to try audiobooks again. Usually I zone out while I’m listening.

    Have a great week!

  16. Vi @Inkvotary

    I envy you. 16 books holy moly! I am still reading a book I started about a week ago and feel terrible -looking at my growing tbr pile *sigh* Ah well, we can´t read every week or month with the same energy or be as fast paced as always …

    Have a great new week.
    Best wishes
    Vi

    • Kimberly

      Exactly and the older I get the faster they seem to go. Remember as a kid when summer stretched forever?

  17. Sophia Rose

    Yay for all the JIAM fun posts. Look forward to all those audio review books I see in your list for next week. I have Dream of Falling that I’ll be getting to soon. I want to get Lif3Lik3 after reading his Illuminae Files.

    Have a great week, Kimberly!

      Right. Goodreads should praise you and say, Oh my look how many lovelies you have read this year. hehe.

  18. Northwoman

    I wanted to do more for JIAM but I’m happy to be doing something. I am excited to participate in a few things and do a few giveaways. Jennifer (TheBookNympho) was the one setting up everything and I just did my reviews and wrote some other posts when asked. Now I have to plan and organize so I’m just starting on this. She gave me a huge love for audiobooks, she and Jonetta, so I’m in a good place with them. You’ve got some great things coming up. I look forward to reading your reviews Anne – Books of My Heart

      There are so many fun activities for JIAM. Yes, Jen and others began my addiction and nurtured it.

  19. Melissa (My World...in words and pages)

    I need to save your current photo for the meme. My old one went funny. And I have to find my photo for my blog too, it went a little goofy. *sigh* Hope you have a great week and month with audiobooks. 🙂

  20. Angela

    WOW no new books added to your book haul… That’s amazing!!! I always seem to pick up one free book. Thank you for sharing my post on June is Audio Month + Giveaway! ^_^
    Have a great week and Happy Listening!!!

    • Kimberly

      Oh, I don’t add those mostly because I don’t remember. If I review them, then I add those.

  21. vvb

    Happy Audiobook month! Great to see your new service up and running. Happy listening.

  22. bookworm

    Happy June. Wow! 16 books and 09 books ahead, you are doing great: 🙂 I haven’t listened to audiobooks in too long, I need to start up again. Enjoy your week!

    • Kimberly

      I go on vacation for two weeks at the end of the month and will fall behind. I do almost every year 🙂

  23. Lily

    Happy June! I want to listen to LIFEL1K3 By Jay Kristoff on Audio as well, it looks like one that would work very well

  24. Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

    Happy Audiobook Month! I go through cycles; sometimes I’m plowing through one audiobook after another, and then I go through long periods when I don’t listen (or switch to podcasts and/or lecture courses, like the ones from The Great Courses.) But I do enjoy them!

    Have a great week and a great month, and happy listening!

    P.S. Your Privacy Policy page is terrific. I still need to do mine.

    • Kimberly

      I think we all do that. Thanks, I think I’ve finally got everything covered by the policy. Feel free to grab bits and modify. Quite a few bloggy friends did. LOL

  25. Kristin (Book Sniffers Anonymous)

    Wow. It sounds like you got a lot of audiobooks in last month. It takes me about a month to listen to a book because I only listen to them when I’m doing something like knitting or driving a long distance. Otherwise, I get distracted easily and find myself tuning out the book. I love that this month is audiobook month though. I will try to push myself to listen to more books this month.

    • Kimberly

      In the beginning, I sat with earbuds and listened, once I retrained my brain I got up and did things. Now I can wash dishes, garden, and more while listening

  26. Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library

    16 books is great! I’m a bit behind on my Goodreads challenge but I’m catching up! I don’t listen to many audio books in June because school is out so I don’t have as much time to concentrate on a book but I do try and get a little time every day. I signed up for the audiobook services newsletter. Sounds exciting! Have a great week!

  27. Mandy

    Things are flying by I can’t believe it’s already June. I’m listening to my first audiobook and might be a little hooked. 16 is a great goal for the month. I hope you hit your goal. Have a great week.

  28. Sophie

    Good luck on your audio book month! And I loved your review of The Kiss Quotient!

  29. Tressa @ Wishful Endings

    Sounds like you’re doing well! Jay Kristoff’s newest is on my tbr, so I’m curious what you thought and will have to come back and check out your review. Have a fabulous week!

  30. Kristin @ AddictedtoHEA

    *waves hi* What a fantastic service you’re starting!! Way to diversify, now with all that time on your hands freed up from dealing with the spam on the blog. YAY!!!!

  31. Joanne

    Caffeinated, Re audio book month, my children’s picture book Lost! A Caribbean Sea Adventure is available as an audio book. Do you have information I could pass on to my publisher re your audio book services linking books and reviewers and audience?

    Joanne recently posted: Fireworks
    • Kimberly

      Not at this time Joanne, I am building up my Audio Blogger list and working with current clients. I will be opening up a service for Audio Reviews where you provide the digital audio copy and I provide bloggers and reviewers to review them. I will make a global announcement when I do. I recommend following me on Twitter @CaffeinatedPR

      What is age level? I might be able to do a review on Nonna’s Corner.

      • Joanne

        Thanks for the response, Kimberly.

        The recommended age for Lost! A Caribbean Sea Adventure is 5-8.

        • Kimberly

          If you are able to provide a digital copy of the audiobook I will review it here for you in late July. Just email me. (email icon in sidebar)

  32. Melanie Simmons

    I love Audiobook Month. It is always a hard month for me. I want to do so much for it, but I also go on vacation at the end of the month, so it is hard for me take care of everything. I’m lucky that Loupe still helps out. I’ve got some great posts coming up for audiobook month with some giveaways.

    I love audio all year long too. Hope you enjoy participating in the #JIAM events.
    Happy Reading/Listening!

  34. Kathy @ My Nook, Books & More

    I love audiobooks and I will try to participate in the macaudiogram. I am awful at the daily instagram challenges but I see some topics I can participate in. You had a great month for May and I hope June is filled with great books. Have a great week Kim!

      This is my first time trying one of these daily posts, and to be honest I leave on vacation June 18th and probably won’t do it daily then, but it is fun.

  35. Lorna

    I have love and Other Words on audio from the publisher and I can’t get to it. I even wrote them and they just sent back the original directions. So I won’t be listening. Hope you have a good week!

    • Kimberly

      From Simon & Schuster? I can walk you through it. I can Facebook message you tonight and we can go through the steps. The first time is always the hardest. Let me know.

      • Lorna

        That would be great! Not sure what time is good for you but I will message you soon Thanks!

  36. Tanya @ Rantings of a Reading Addict

    I’m dropping behind in my GR challenge. Was up to 5 books ahead, now down to 2. I’ve been slowing down. I got mad at the last book I read and haven’t been able to really get into anything else since. I hate cliffhangers.

  37. Daniela Ark

    yay! Then June is my month because all I have time to do right now is audiobooks 🙂 16 books in a month is awesome! 9 books ahead with your GR challenge is even awesomer! WTG Kim!

  38. ali

    Looking forward to Audiobook Month and seeing what books are popular on peoples blogs 🙂

    • Kimberly

      Agreed, plus Twitter and Facebook are all aflutter with goodness. Check #JIAM and #loveaudiobooks

  39. Tizzy

    I just signed up for the free trial of Audible a few days ago, because I thought I could fit more reading in that way while travelling or getting ready in the morning and so on. I didn’t realise it’s audiobook month, perfect timing! Well done on finishing so many books. I wish I could get through them that fast.
