2023 Audiobook Challenge

Hey Audiobook Junkies, it’s time to sign up for the 2023 Audiobook Challenge, hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer and That’s What I’m Talking About. Choose your level and get those audiobooks ready. Whether you are an audio virgin or an addict, we’ve got a level for you.

Use hashtag #2023AudiobookChallenge on social media to alert others to your listens and progress!

Current 2022 audio junkies, the last check in will be December 30th and you’ll have 7 days to link up and share your results.

Challenge Details

  • Runs January 1, 2023 – December 31, 2023. You can join at any time.
  • The goal is to find a new love for audios or to outdo yourself by listening to more audios in 2023 than you did in 2022.
  • Books must be in audio format (CD, MP3, etc.)
  • ANY genres count.
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads, Facebook, etc. I recommend creating a shelf on Goodreads titled 2023 Audiobook Challenge. You can keep track and link the shelf.
  • If you’re a blogger grab the button and do a quick post about the challenge to help spread the word. If you’re not a blogger you can help by posting on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube or Tweet about the challenge.
  • Updates plus a giveaway will be posted twice during the year. The first update will be July 2, 2023, and the last update will take place on December 30, 2023. You’ll have one week to link up and share your progress

    i have signed up to this as hoping to read more than 1 audiobook month. I am excited.

  2. Aymee

    I’ve been reading more and more audiobooks the last couple of years. This is the perfect reason to read even more.

  3. Stephane Segura

    This is my first time entering an audiobook challenge. I’m aiming for Binge Listener.

  4. Wendy

    I finally got my stuff together and figured out my goals for 2023. I did 30 audiobooks last year and am upping it to 35 this year. Thanks so much for hosting this wonderful challenge, Kimberly.

  5. Laura

    Just signed up for the 7th year in a row. Can’t wait and can’t believe it’s been that long!

  6. Monica L Murphy

    I love audiobooks and this looks like a great challenge. I am pretty sure I will not have a problem achieving my goal. Good luck everyone! Just as an FYI, I am a bookstagrammer, not a blogger.

    • Kimberly

      We welcome bloggers, readers, booksgrammers, booktokers etc. Anyone can join the challenge. I recommend you create a shelf/tag on Goodreads called 2023 Audiobook Challenge. That way, you can link that bookshelf to the check-in links for the giveaways.

  7. Connie

    My first Audiobook challenge and I’m very excited to participate. I posted the link to my Challenge shelf. Wish me luck. 🤞

    • Kimberly

      Ysy. It’s real easy. We only do 2 check-ins. One at the mid-year point and one of the 30th of December. You just need to link a blog post to it or Goodreads shelf.

  8. Amanda

    This will be my first time doing this and I am excited! Starting with a big goal of either meeting the over-achiever or the 100-club level. I set-up a shelf on my Goodreads and will post links to my reviews on my website there.

  9. Tina H

    RE: your reply to: UGH, I just realized I put the wrong link in for 2022. Can’t see how to update it but here it is in case it can be changed.

  12. Wendy

    I’ll be doing this again, Kimberly. It’s one of my favorite challenges. I’ll get my post ready soon and do the linky

  13. Nina Heckerthorne

    I’m up for this challenge. Audiobooks really help me get so much more reading done each year

  14. Jan farnworth

    I really enjoyed this challenge do you know of a reading tracker that focuses on audiobooks? I want to see my trends and i have a tracker thst has info for audiobooks but it doesn’t create graphs based off the audiobook info beyond the total hours.
