2017 Audiobook Challenge Sign Up


2017 Audiobook Challenge

The Audiobook Challenge is back for 2017!

Join Hot Listens and our new co-host Caffeinated Book Reviewer for the 5th year of great audio books.

Audiobooks are great for those times you want to read but can’t for some reason like driving, doing chores, working out, or if you’re one of the lucky ones like me, listen to them at work.

I hope all those new and old junkies can join us once again for The 2017 Audiobook Challenge.

Listening has never been better!  Thanks to the continued popularity of Audiobooks just about everything is being published on audio…YAY!

We will hold 2 updates with giveaways. First update will be June 30th, 2017 and the final update will be Dec 15, 2017

There has never been a better time for reading with our ears 🙂

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.
