Since this is the start of Audiobook Week I’m just going to highlight the audiobooks I received this week. Look for lots of audiobook chatter, reviews and recs throughout the week!

Audiobooks for Review:

From Simon & Schuster Audio:

Being Me by Lisa Renee Jones read by Grace Grant -  The sequel to If I Were You.

This Girl by Colleen Hoover read by Kirby Heyborne -  Slammed from Will’s POV.

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay read by Candace Thaxton and  Kirby Heyborne – I’ve read the book but am enjoying revisiting it through audio.

From Penguin Audio:

The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls by Anton DiSclafani read by Adina Verson - I’ve been hearing a lot about this book so I’m excited to listen to it. It’s about a girl sent to an equestrienne boarding school due to her involvement in a family scandal.

The Submissive by Tara Sue Me read by Angelica Lee – This is another erotic fanfic a la FSoG about the relationship between a wealthy CEO and a librarian.

Loyalty by Ingrid Thoft read by Rebecca Soler – I like Soler as a narrator and that got me interested in this book. It’s about a female PI investigating a body found in Boston Harbor.

Until Fountain Bridge by Samantha Young read by Ruth Hopkins -  This is a novella from the On Dublin Street series about Ellie and Adam. I’ve already listened to it and it’s very cute – review to come.

The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen read by Allie Gallerani – Love reading/listening to Sarah Dessen’s books in the summer.

Tarnish by Katherine Longshore read by Leslie Bellair – I liked the audiobook of Gilt, so I’m looking forward to reading Longshore’s next book about Anne Boleyn.

Proxy by Alex London read by Andrew Sweeney – This dystopian book sounds so cool- it’s about a rich patron named Knox and his proxy, the orphan Syd. Whenever Knox messes up, Syd is punished.

The Wells Bequest by Polly Shulman read by Johnny Heller – The companion book to The Grimm Legacy. I didn’t even know there was another book in the works! Fun MG series.

A lot of these narrators are new-to-me so I’m excited to discover some new favorites.

Let me know what you’re reading or listening to in the comments. Have a good week!

    I keep seeing The Sea of Tranquility on blogs, and the more I see it the more interested I am in it. I haven’t picked it up yet, but imagine that it won’t be that far away.
