Thanks for hosting! To date, I have listened to a total of 16 audiobooks. Not the best streak but working on it! Makes me Socially Awkward and holds much truth for me. Hope you are having a wonderful summer!
16 is outstanding Mary. Keep up the listening!

This is such a fun challenge because I love reading with my ears! One of my standouts this year has been In Order to Live by Yeonmi Park. What an inspiring story!
Me too!! I will check out your recommendation.
I have so far listened to 42 audiobooks. I have reached what I was striving for. Time to shoot for another one lol I’ll try for the 100 club. I really enjoyed 2 books and I’m not sure if it was just because of them doing a cast reading but I would totally recommend people listen to the audiobook. World War Z by Max Brooks and Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce
I loved Workd War Z too. Congrats!!
I’m at 36 audiobooks. The best one so far is Darling Girl by Liz Michalski.
I will check it out. Congrats on the first half of the challenge!!
Rachel @Waves of Fiction
Oh, you’re doing good! You’ll definitely make it. I’m behind at 43 books so far. I’ll have to listen to a few novellas I think. Thanks again for hosting!
You’ve got this Rachel!
I listened to twenty-three audio books so far. My favourites are A Taste of Her Own Medicine by Tasha L Harrison and Suddenly Psychic by Elizabeth Hunter.
Love Hunter. Great job Nadene!
I’ve listened to 35 audiobooks so far this year. 🙂 I think I’ll still be able to reach my Over-Achiever (Power Listener) 75+ goal.
You’ve got this Lily!!
I’m doing well so far on my challenge, just about the mid-point for my goal (60 books). Usually summer is a slow down, so we’ll see how I do in the end!
Good luck Jen!!
Goal: Marathoner (Look Ma No Hands) 50+
I am currently at 46 audiobooks so far this year.
Wahoo!! That is awesome Amanda
My goal was 100+ this year. I have suddenly become a person who listens to audiobooks as her primary source of “reading” and have already listened to 149 audiobooks this year out of 369 total books read.
Look at you!! Once the Royals are all in school I hope to reach those levels again.
Melissa The Reading Nerd
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch is an oldie but goodie for me
My Goal is the Overachiever and I’m at 56 books so I’m thinking I will actually hit the 100 club. I haven’t been tracking how many audios I read per year so I wasn’t sure where to set my goal, but looks like I could have gone higher! Thanks for hosting!
That is awesome Berls!!
I have listened to 23 audiobooks so far this year. Three of them have been five star. They were The Island by Adrian McKinty; Mirrorland by Carole Johnson; and The Keeper of Stories by Sally Page
Nice Sandra. I will look those up.
58 is really good.
I read really fast so I just read print books. Audiobooks are hard for me to concentrate on and listen to.
Have you tried adjusting the audio speed. I cannot listen unless I speed it slightly
I listened and reviewed so far one audiobook. Currently I am reading my second one.
You can do it!
I’m at only 10 out of 30, but I’ve listened to a few more that I just need to write review. I like this check in because now I know I have to listen to more audiobooks for the rest of the year!
Agreed, it helps. You do not have to write reviews to count them. Just need to show listened.
My favorite listen so far….so many, however the standout is The Mixtape by Brittainy Cherry narrated Jordan Cobb and James Shippy. My goal is to achieve The 100 Club (Audiobook Addict)!! Thanks for hosting Kim…its so much fun to escape!!
Agreed Susan. Keep listening ❤️
I messed up on the raffle copter I entered the wrong info for the first one where you put your initial sign up number
No worries Jan. I got you.
Thanks as always for hosting. I am on track for my goal – 57 of 100.
My favorites (4.5 to 5.0) are listed in my post. My only 5.0 so far is The Black Wolves of Boston, Book 1, by Wen Spencer. I wish there were more in the series but not so far.
I will look that one up. Great job so far Martha!
Looks like you’re right on track, Kimberly.
I’m working on 100+ Club and have a nice lead into the second half of the year. My favorites are the Sebastian St. Cyr series read by Davina Porter. Cherry Jones who does the Little House series and Carrington MacDuffie who did The Cherokee trail are new favorite narrators for me.
Yay. Keep up the good work Sophia
Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews
I signed up for the newbie level and have listened to 4 books so far. Just one more left to go. Hopefully next year I can try the next level.
That is awesome Yvonne!
Lover of Romance
I have been doing a good job with this challenge for the year, and discovered some great audiobooks. Probably There With You by Samantha Young has been my favorite audio.
I like Young. Happy listening
The Haunting Of Brynn Wilder by Wendy Webb is so far my favorite. I really enjoyed it. I’m currently listening to For The Throne by Hannah F. Whitten and that might just become the new favorite.
Interesting, I will look it up.
My favorite audiobooks this year would be between The Other Bennet Sister by Janice Hadlow (the events of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and beyond from the viewpoint of Mary, the quiet, bookish middle sister) and Once Upon a Wardrobe by Patti Callahan (novel about a college girl asking C. S. Lewis about Narnia for her dying younger brother). I’m aiming for Binge Listener and am at 12 books, so right on track.
Wahoo!! Keep up the listening Barbara
Lucy @ Bookworm Blogger
I’m currently sitting at 50 and hope to make the 75 before the end of the year. I have loved so many audiobooks it’s really hard to choose a favourite.
That is fantastic Lucy!!
Tonnie - The Book Junkie Reads . . .
I’m club 100 all day long. My true goal would be to reach 100 in a month. I am still reaching for that goal. I’d like to say that I have done well thus far.
Absolute favorite thus far : Men of Whiskey Row Boxed Set, Books 1-6 by D. A. Young Narrators Morae Brehon & Sean Crisden – Contemporary Series Multicultural
With Dark Planet Warriors: Books 1-4 by Anna Carven Narrators Jillian Macie & Todd McLaren – Science Fiction from Tantor Audio a close runner-up.
But The Mixtape by Brittainy Cherry Narrators Jordan Cobb & James Shippy – Contemporary made me stop and think of how life for everyone differs from just bit to a gorge.
Awesome Tonnie! You mentioned a few on my wishlist.
Thanks! Will add the link to my post today!
