My Top 6 Audiobook Recommendations

Audiobooks are my secret reading weapon.

I understand that they’re not for everyone (although, I’m hoping some of the books on here will change that), but they have been so helpful to me over the last few months in getting me to read more. As a reader, consuming a book in the same format over and over can start to feel boring.
