2014 Audiobook Challenge - FINAL UPDATE

It's hard to believe that 2014 is almost over, which means it's almost time to say adios to the 2014 Audiobook Challenge, hosted by The Book Nympho and Hot Listens. I'm afraid I'm going to fall just short of my goal. But, it's totally not my fault! My work situation changed a few months ago, and I no longer have an hour to spend in the car every day. So, I've been stealing moments with my iPod when I can, here and there. It's not as often as before, but it's something.

So, where do I stand?

It seems that I've been on a romance kick lately, both contemporary and paranormal. I've listened to a lot that I've liked. I've read a lot of first books in various series. I actually do plan to continue those series. I'm looking forward to it, really.

And, because I've been dabbling in different series, I've experienced a few different narrators too, which has been a lot of fun. Of the most recent batch of books I've listened to, my favorite was Robert Petkoff, narrator of Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series. The accents that man can do... He's good.

So, there you have it. I may knock out one more book before the end of the year, which will leave me at one shy of my goal. Still - it's more audiobooks than I listened to last year, so that's something, right? I'll definitely be participating in the 2015 Audiobook Challenge. Will you?

Great job. I love the Downside Ghost series. I need to get catch up on the Jane Jameson.

I'll have to checkout some of the audiobooks you listened to this year!

Congrats on reaching the 'My Precious' level this year!! I made the 'My Precious' level too in the 2014 Audiobook Challenge. I never thought I'd reach it, but was amazed to reach 48 listens for the year.
