2015 Audiobook Challenge Third Update




It is time for that third check-in of the year. I hope everyone is having a great time with this challenge. I know that I am. The number of audiobooks I listen to grows every year. I’m glad to hear about more and more of my book friends learning to love the joy of audiobooks as well. I love hearing that I’ve converted someone else into becoming a audio junkie. Hehehe.

I’m doing great so far this year. I’m at a total of 68 in all. I’ve listened to some shorter books with one at less than 2 and a half hours long. I’ve also picked up a few longer ones at 19 plus hours long. I’ve picked up a new author based on the narrator that I loved.

I’m finding myself listening more and more as I have less and less time to read. I love that some indie authors are starting to get audiobooks. Audible is really stepping up how many they are making as well. I remember when only NYT Bestsellers had audiobooks, so I love how much this segment continues to grow.

I can’t wait to see how everyone else is doing on their challenges and see if I missed any reviews that were posted this quarter. Maybe I’ll find some new books to add to my ever growing audio TBR list. Keep listening.

I had only one relisten this quarter, The Martian. I’m so excited to see this movie when it comes out.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


    • I’m not normally a person who gets excited for books that I’ve read to be made into movies. I’m usually so disappointed. From the trailers that I’ve seen, it looks like it will be really good. I think Matt Damon will be a great Mark Watney.

  2. Yes i am really looking forward to the movie The Martian – hope it at the very least is as good as the audio – it has a lot to live up to!

  3. Looking good, Melanie. Not quite in your range, but I have advanced two levels. I have 16 audios YTD. I was going to include a link to my GR audio challenge shelf, but Word Press is being cranky. Oh well!

  4. I just got into audiobooks this spring so I didn’t have the opportunity to sign up for this challenge! I really want to for 2016 though because I would love to get even deeper into audio listens 🙂 Congrats on listening to so many awesome looking books!

    • I know how that goes. I almost forgot to do mine. How bad would that have been? 🙁 I’m glad you’re doing well this year. I can’t wait to see how you like The Martian. I’ve been pushing everyone I can to read it. I just love it so much.

  5. Wow you read a lot of audiobooks so far! That’s great you managed to read so many audiobooks. I still haven’t given them a try and think I prefer ebooks and physical books for now, although I do plan to give one a try eventually. Audiobooks do seem to get more popular lately, I hear more and more authors who do audiobooks and I also see mroe bloggers who review audiobooks.

  6. Wow! That’s a great number of books you listened to! And…hehehehe! I was wondering on the title you listened to, Bunny and the Bear. I was expecting either a cute contemporary story or a children’s book, so it took me by surprise to see that it was a steamy romance! I am tempted to try it out. 🙂

    • Huh…my computer just downloaded the covers of all the books you listened to. Before, I only saw the titles so I didn’t know the genres of the books. 😀
