2014 Audiobook Challenge Update - January

I signed up for this challenge after it became clear that not only do I love audios, but I'm obsessed with them. It's hosted by one of my fav bloggers, The Book Nympho. If you want to enter into this challenge you're welcome to do so anytime. Just go here and sign up. Here are the rules (copied from the sign up page):

  • Runs January 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014. You can join at anytime.
  • The goal is to find a new love for audios or to outdo yourself by listening to more audios in 2014 than you did in 2013.
  • 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, Shelfari, Facebook, LibraryThing, etc.
  • 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 or Tweeting about the challenge.
You can choose whatever level you want to reach, and then start reading. I signed up for :

  • My Precious (I had my earbuds surgically implanted) 30+
This month I got off to a great start. I listened to 7 audiobooks. Pretty much all of them were great. I wrote reviews on most of them, but not all. Feel free to click on the links below to check them out:

Heart of Venom by Jennifer Estep (1/2/14-1/3/14)
On the Edge by Ilona Andrews (1/3/14-1/6/14)
Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews (1/9/14-1/13/14)
Fates Edge by Ilona Andrews (1/13/14-1/15/14)
Steels Edge by Ilona Andrews (1/15/14-1/20/14)
The Spider by Jennifer Estep (1/23/14-1/27/14)
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas (1/27/14-1/29/14)

I also started Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas on 1/30/14 but I'm not counting it because I didn't finish it until 2/4/14.

Overall, it's a pretty ridiculous start to the year, and I'm pretty sure I'll meet my goal.

As you can see, I was in a bit of an Ilona Andrews Binge. The narrator is absolutely awesome and narrates all of her books so I love em. The narrators for Jennifer Estep and Sarah J Maas were pretty awesome too. Nothing bad to say about them.

I'm already about 4 books in for February too.....looks like I'm going to make it to my goal. I just love audiobooks so much. They're so fun to read and since I get motion sickness if I read actual books in the car, I get to listen to these in the car, and while I work. It's perfect for me.

Wow! You're so lucky to be able to get reading done while you're at work! I haven't read an audiobook in a very long time. I find it really difficult to concentrate on the narrator while I'm doing other things but I am def going to look into it. Good luck with your challenge though I don't think you need it!
