2018 Audiobook Challenge Wrap-Up

I actually met my goal for the 2018 Audiobook Challenge. My goal was 30+. Last year I listened to 26. One of the goals of the challenge is to “outdo yourself by listening to more audios in 2018 than you did in 2017,” which I definitely accomplished.

Thanks again to our hosts, Hot Listens and Caffeinated Reviewer.

A couple I knew I would love: Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie, Lethal White by Robert Galbraith.

A few others I really enjoyed: I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara, Artemis by Andy Weir, Lock In by John Scalzi.

There aren’t any on the list that I hated, but a couple were disappointing: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith. They both probably would have been better in print.
