The 30 Best Audible Escape Books

Here are the 30 best Audible Escape books that you can binge-listen to with this fantastic unlimited audiobook subscription!

Edit Sept. 16: Unfortunately, Audible has released a statement yesterday that Audible Escape will be discontinued. If you have an active subscription, you won’t be billed anymore from now on and you can still listen to Audible Escape books for free until November 1st. Some of the audiobooks will move into Audible Plus instead. Read more about Audible Plus! And please sign up for my newsletter so I can keep you posted about Audible Plus developments and Audible Escape alternatives!

Is Audible Escape being discontinued?

Yes. Unfortunately, it’s true. You can’t sign up to Audible Escape anymore. If you have an active subscription, you won’t be billed anymore in October and you can still listen to Audible Escape books in your library until November 1st. Then all things Audible Escape will be gone πŸ™

Will the Audible Escape audiobooks still exist?

Yes, absolutely! Some will move into Audible Plus – Audible’s new unlimited audiobook subscription. And the rest will be available for purchase with Audible credits or through Whispersync deals (what’s that?).

Is Audible Plus the new name for Audible Escape?

No. They’re two very different subscriptions – at least behind the scenes. It’s most likely that Audible Plus will only ever include Audible’s own content, not audiobooks from other publishers. Authors and other audiobook publishers could have their audiobooks included in Audible Escape and be paid for every listened minute (similar to how Kindle Unlimited works). Audible Plus doesn’t let authors enroll their own books.

Why was Audible Escape discontinued?

We don’t know for sure. One theory is that Audible couldn’t manage to create a fair payment structure for audiobook publishers. And instead of putting more work into solving this and possibly increasing the price of Escape, they discontinued the program and implemented Audible Plus which only includes audiobooks they hold the rights for (so they don’t have the hassle of needing a fair, sustainable payment system for authors and narrators).

How will I be able to afford my audiobooks now?

That’s a fair question! Audible Escape was one of a kind for Romance audiobook fans. But you have other options for unlimited audiobook services that you should try out to see which one fits you best: Read more…

How does Audible Escape work?

Similarly to a Kindle Unlimited subscription, you can borrow 10 audiobooks at a time. There is no limit on how many books you can download throughout the month.

The audiobooks aren’t yours to keep. You can only listen to them while you have an active subscription. Just borrow them and download them in your Audible app as usual. You can listen to as many Audible Escape books or to the same book as often as you want!

How to return Audible Escape books

If you want to return an audiobook you simply choose “Remove from library” in the app or exchange them when you want to download a new book. If you already have 10, you’ll be prompted to choose one to return before you can download the new title.

  1. Great article, thanks for the recommendations! Just wanted to comment that you can search by romance trope (quite specifically, actually) if you go on the Audible website instead of the app!

  2. Joanne Tailele

    I am not a romance reader, but I love women’s fiction. I hope someday Audible Escape opens up to more genres. It does not sound like it has enough for me right now.

    1. Thank you for leaving a comment πŸ™‚
      I understand that it doesn’t seem worth it to you right now. Audible currently shows 39 audiobooks for the category Chick Lit in Audible Escape. I would like it best if they grew other genres as well, Fiction, Fantasy, Thriller… Definitely more cozies! As long as they don’t take away what they currently have in place for Romance readers. Since those are some fun and handy features, and there’s so ridiculous much choice.

    1. Most of the time, I don’t have an Audible membership. Between Kindle Unlimited, Audible Escape, and Amazon’s audio upgrades, I can get most of the audiobooks I want cheaper than with a credit. Lindzee Armstrong also has two audiobooks in Audible Escape and she has an amazing narrator πŸ™‚
