Spring + Summer Audiobook TBR

Saturday, April 28, 2018
I've been loving using the BookBeat audiobook subscription service for the past year and I cannot wait to continue listening to some amazing audiobooks! Audiobooks are a great way to boost the number of books I read, they help me reach my reading goals and the format means that I can listen to audiobooks when I can't read a physical book. 

As with physical books, I love to create TBR lists to keep track of the books and audiobooks I'm planning on reading/listening to. Keeping track is important to me as I need to be organised and I am lucky enough to be sent a fair amount of books by publishers so I need to know when I have to read them by. 
Usually I create monthly TBR lists but today I'm sharing the audiobooks I'm going to be listening to over the spring and summer months - some of which I've already listened to as I couldn't wait. As with my reading taste, I also have a very varied audiobook list with classics, fantasy, childrens, YA, crime and non-fiction books. 

The audiobooks I've already listened to include Inferior by Angela Saini which I cannot recommend enough especially as it concerns a very important topic - womens rights, equality and persecution of women. I'd recommend it to everyone, especially men! You will be able to read my full April reading wrap-up tomorrow

The second I've already listen to is Carnivore by Jonathan Lyon which is one of the most unique, disturbing and controversial books I've ever read/listened to. I would recommend it but it makes for very uncomfortable, graphic listening at times (well most of the time). It does concern potentially triggering topics of drug use, abuse, rape, crime and mental illness/chronic illness. 
Some of the other audiobooks I'm looking forward to listening to over the next few months include a few classics such as Notes From The Underground by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Rebecca by Daphne de Maurier, Love and Friendship by Jane Austen and a couple of childrens classics including the adorable Paddington by Michael Bond. 

The majority of the audiobooks on my latest TBR include fantasy and YA fantasy, my favourite genres! I'm currently listening to the fantasy book, The Count Of Broken Knives which is a little confusing so far but I'm looking forward to listening to it again.

If you wanted to subscribe to BookBeat then it's £14.90 per month and there isn't a limit on how many audiobooks you can listen to but you can get a ONE MONTH free trial using this link (it's not an affiliate link) rather than the normal two week free trial.

Do you listen to audiobooks? Have you read any of these books? 


  1. I like a physical book too much to enjoy audio books. I like the feel of the pages and the smell lol

  2. I love a physical book, however an audiobook might be the new way to go if I'm on the move!

  3. Although I'm not into audiobooks, I really want to read Carnivore.


  4. Carnivore sounds like an interesting read. It might be a little too intense for my liking but I'd like to give it a go.

  5. I need to start listening to audio books! I bet they'd be so relaxing whilst I'm working x

  6. I haven't read any of these, but I've heard good things about an ember in the ashes. I love listening to audiobooks that I borrow from my library:)

  7. I've not heard of Book Beat before! Will have a look into it. I've never listened to an audiobook but they definitely seem like a good way to get through the commute.
