Top 10 Audio Books of 2021

Since I only read 25 books published in 2021, I choose to do the books I read in 2021 regardless of when they were published. I also read 3x more audio than print, and while that made the pickings tricky for yesterday because I didn’t have as many to pick from, today it’s hard because I have so many to choose from. That being said, here are my top 10 audio books of 2021 (links are to my reviews):

  1. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab narrated by Julia Whelan (5 stars – and my #1 book of 2021, all formats)
  2. One by One by Ruth Ware narrated by Imogen Church (5 stars)
  3. Faithless in Death by J.D. Robb narrated by Susan Ericksen (5 stars)
  4. Men Love Witches by Danielle Garrett narrated by Amanda Ronconi (5 stars)
  5. The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen by Ada Bright narrated by Cass Grafton and Alison Larkin (5 stars)
  1. The Prince’s Blade by Christopher Mitchell narrated by Shaun Grindell (5 stars – the last of a trilogy that got better with each book!)
  2. Single Dad Seeks Juliet by Max Monroe narrated by Stephanie Rose and Alexander Cendese (5 stars)
  3. Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh narrated by Angela Dawe (5 stars)
  4. Shield of Winter by Nalini Singh narrated by Angela Dawe (5 stars)
  5. Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh narrated by Angela Dawe (5 stars)

So for my audio reads, the bulk of the books are Tantor Audio review reads, along with a couple book club reads and, of course, books from the Psy-Changling readalong we did this year for COYER and hosted by Anne.
