Audio Book Challenge Mid-Year Check-In


Hot Listens and Caffeinated Reviewer are hosting the 8th annual Audiobook Challenge for 2020 and I'm posting my Mid-Year Check-in.

I pledged the 100 Club Audio Elite, and I guess I'm a little behind since I'm only at 39 books right now.  Must step up my game!

Click here for a link to my 2020 Challenge on Goodreads.

Here are some of my favorites of the year so far:



I'm including all the Mercy Thompson books, but Moon Called is the first one. I'm currently working my way through the series for the 3rd time and I've just finished book nine. Alone in the Wild is one that I both read traditionally and then listened to the audio. The audio was fantastic with Therese Plummer narrating. Loving the Ellery Hathaway series! All the Best Lies was so good! The Lady Darby series is one I've blown through by audio. Heather Wilds' performance is wonderful! 

What about you? Did you join the challenge this year? Let me know how you're doing!

  1. Sounds like it's time to crank up those audio listens. :) Hope you have some great reads *and* manage to catch up on the challenge.

  2. That's a lot of audiobooks. I think I listen to 3 or so a week, so, hmmm, maybe I would make it to elite status. Well, good luck! I think you can knock out 60 in 6 months.

    1. Thanks! Wow, 60 sounds like a lot. I guess we'll see.

  3. I've definitely listened to less audiobooks this year. Losing my daily commute for a couple months really put a damper on my momentum there. On the other hand, I've read far more physical books than I normally would, so things are balanced out at least.

    1. I've still been commuting, but because traffic has been so light my travel time has decreased making it less time I'm listening. Also, I sprained my ankle about 8 weeks ago and I listen while hiking/running and I haven't been doing. Just recently started up again.
