2018 Listening Book Club Recap By Genre

2018 was the year I discovered audio books. Discovering audio books has been a game changer for me. I wasn’t a avid reader but now I can’t get enough. With OverDriveLibbyByOverdrive and Audible I have heard 95 books this year. I have a long commute to work so adding audio books to my music and Podcast routine worked out great. Not only are the audio books entertaining but I have learned so much from the memoirs and self-help books I have heard. Check out the list below it is separated by genres. 

Inthethickofitblog.com rating legend:

5-stars Loved, loved, loved it, unique topic/story and dynamic narration

4-stars Liked it and it had good narrator(s)

3-stars Average topic/story and it had good narrator(s)

I won’t have any lower ratings, when I sense a book is not for me I give up on it, life is to short to grunt your way through a book that isn’t for you. ;)
