Audiobooks Up Next on My TBR, Part II | Top Ten Tuesday

Hosted weekly by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy Tuesday!

It's a freebie week for TTT! I'm taking the easy route and sharing a list of audiobooks. I listen to a lot of them (as I mentioned earlier this year), so I'm always ready with an extensive amount of choices. Here are a few of the up-next ones for me:

American Predator by Maureen Callahan

"A gripping tour de force of investigative journalism that takes us deep into the investigation behind one of the most frightening and enigmatic serial killers in modern American history, and into the ranks of a singular American police force: the Alaska PD."

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

"Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver."

The Beast's Garden by Kate Forsyth

"The Beast's Garden is a compelling and beautiful love story, filled with drama and intrigue and heartbreak, taking place between 1938 and 1943, in Berlin, Germany."

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman

"The only child of a single mother, Nina has her life just as she wants it: a job in a bookstore, a kick-butt trivia team, a world-class planner and a cat named Phil. If she sometimes suspects there might be more to life than reading, she just shrugs and picks up a new book."

Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella

"But come Monday morning, Emma’s office is abuzz about the arrival of Jack Harper, the company’s elusive CEO. Suddenly Emma is face-to-face with the stranger from the plane, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her. Things couldn’t possibly get worse. Or could they?"

The Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting

"Lilah isn't sure what hurt worse: the day Ethan left her to focus on his hockey career or the day he came back eight years later. He might think they can pick up just where they left off, but she's no longer that same girl and never wants to be again."

The Hope of Azure Springs by Rachel Fordham

"Seven years ago, orphaned and alone, Em finally arrived at a new home in Iowa after riding the orphan train. But secrets from her past haunt her, and her new life in the Western wilderness is a rough one. When her guardian is shot and killed, Em, now nineteen, finally has the chance to search for her long-lost sister, but she won't be able to do it alone."

Jane, Unlimited by Kristin Cashore

"Jane has lived a mostly ordinary life, raised by her recently deceased aunt Magnolia, whom she counted on to turn life into an adventure. Without Aunt Magnolia, Jane is directionless. Then an old acquaintance, the glamorous and capricious Kiran Thrash, blows back into Jane’s life and invites her to a gala at the Thrashes’ extravagant island mansion called Tu Reviens. Jane remembers her aunt telling her: 'If anyone ever invites you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you’ll go.'"

Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch

"Lina is spending the summer in Tuscany, but she isn’t in the mood for Italy’s famous sunshine and fairy-tale landscape. She’s only there because it was her mother’s dying wish that she get to know her father. But what kind of father isn’t around for sixteen years? All Lina wants to do is get back home."

Maybe This Time by Kasie West

"Weddings. Funerals. Barbecues. New Year's Eve parties. Name the occasion, and Sophie Evans will be there. Well, she has to be there. Sophie works for the local florist, so she can be found at every big event in her small hometown, arranging bouquets and managing family dramas."

The Noble Servant by Melanie Dickerson

"The impossible was happening. She, Magdalen of Mallin, was to marry the Duke of Wolfberg. Magdalen had dreamed about receiving a proposal ever since she met the duke two years ago. Such a marriage was the only way she could save her people from starvation. But why would a handsome, wealthy duke want to marry her, a poor baron’s daughter? It seemed too good to be true."

Only Ever Her by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen

"Annie Taft’s wedding is four days away, and it will be one of the grandest anyone can remember in her small South Carolina town. Preparations are in order. Friends and family are gathering in anticipation. Everything is going according to plan. Except that Annie herself has vanished. Did she have second thoughts?"

Patron Saints of Nothing by Randy Ribay

"Jay Reguero plans to spend the last semester of his senior year playing video games before heading to the University of Michigan in the fall. But when he discovers that his Filipino cousin Jun was murdered as part of President Duterte's war on drugs, and no one in the family wants to talk about what happened, Jay travels to the Philippines to find out the real story."

A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund

"Living in London's poorest slum, Mercy Wilkins harbors little hope for a better life. So when she's offered the opportunity to join a bride ship sailing to British Columbia, she agrees. The journey abroad is her only prospect to escape a bleak future—both for herself and to help her sister, who's suffering in a workhouse."

Take a Chance by Shelley Shepard Gray

"Shelley Shepard Gray's new Bridgeport Social Club series is about men who need a place to call home, a community in need of hope, and a group of women who are special enough to help both things happen. This first installment is genuine and heartfelt. It's filled with hope, warmth, and the belief that love and acceptance can overcome any tough situation."

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

"For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. She's barefoot and wild; unfit for polite society. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark."

Wicked Fox by Kat Cho

"Eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung has a secret--she's a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox who must devour the energy of men in order to survive. Because so few believe in the old tales anymore, and with so many evil men no one will miss, the modern city of Seoul is the perfect place to hide and hunt."

  3. The Bookish Life of Nina Hill is close to the top of my to-read list, it sounds so darn cute! I really want to read Patron Saints of Nothing and Wicked Fox - I heard fantastic things about both of them. Hope you'll love all of these. :) And answering to your question, I don't really listen to audibooks, but I definitely want to try more of them.

  4. Oh gosh, so many of these sound super intriguing. Quite a few are on my TBR as well and I really hope I get to them in the next few months. Side note, the cover for The Bookish Life of Nina Hill gets me every time. It is so freaking cute, I can't explain what exactly makes it so swoon worthy to me but you know!
