But first….



The 2018 Highlights on the blog!

Fridays on Lovely Audiobooks

Every Friday, when I post that week’s new releases, I include a summary of my new posts as well. But since this is a Best Of 2018, I should also list a few highlights of my first 1/2 year with my little book blog.

6 months of Lovely Audiobook

This blog went online in July, so this is kind of my halfsy blogiversary. At first I had no clue what I was doing. But over time I figured out that what I really want to talk about. That is, firstly, how amazing audiobooks are in general, and secondly, how you can listen to more great audiobooks for less money.

So I wrote about why audiobooks matter and which subscription deals you can sign up to, so you can binge listen. I also made my case why we shouldn’t be embarrassed about listening to romance audiobooks and why I personally love audiobooks so much.

And now it’s time….

The Best Free Romance Audiobooks of 2018 - these are the most popular audiobooks released this year. All of them are either in the Audible Romance Package or Kindle Unlimited Listen for Free. So you can listen to all of these audiobooks in your free test month! Click to see the audio book list and save the pin for later :-) #booklist #bestof2018 #romance

  1. I have not been able to get into audiobooks yet. I am one of those that needs to be looking at the book while I am reading it or my mind wanders, but I am interested in listening to them. I have been thinking about getting amazon unlimited so maybe i’ll Give. One of the free ones on there another go. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the great post.

  2. I’m a sucker for romance books πŸ™‚ I have to say some audio book readers are just plain awkard when I listen to romances. There are some I absolutely love, but there is a good chunk that is a total miss for me! Great list – I’ll have to check some of these out!!!

    1. It’s a bummer when a book you really want to listen to is narrated by someone you don’t enjoy listening to. I had that happen with one of my absolute favorite romances. But I think the awkward feeling can get better after a while. Dual narration took some getting used to for me πŸ™‚

  3. Wow! These do look like they would all do the romance novel thing quite nicely. The cover is half of what makes or breaks my interest in reading the book. Thanks for sharing.
