Books I’ve Read

How do you pick your next audiobook? If you’re a fan of audiobooks like me, this is always a question I struggle with. I would highly recommend listing out all the physical books you’ve read and start sifting through – listening to your favourite ones again adds a new dimension to the stories. This list is a work in progress – but I’ve found it useful in revisiting novels I’ve read or picking up on new works by the same author. The only annoying thing I’ve found so far is there’s a number of my favourites which are not on Audible.

I’m going to struggle to get these down so I might as well add them as I go along. As with the films list I’ve made in bold those I like the best. Those ones I’ve listened to on audiobook only I’ve added an [AB] at the end for those both book and audiobook I’ve included [+AB] – this is to save duplicating the names of the titles.
