AUDIO BOOKS


If you spend a lot of time in your car like I do, then you probably have different ways to past the time.  One of my favorites is to listen to audio books.  Here are a few that I loved:

YOU ARE A BADASS

By Jenn Sincero

This is an empowering self-help book about improving your life and reaching goals.  Listening to this book on audio will make you feel like Jenn Sincero is your own personal life coach.  This book gave me the courage to sign up for improv classes.  I honestly can't tell you how motivational it is to listen to 30 minutes of this book in the morning before work.  By the time I got to my desk I would feel like - hell yeah!  I'm going to crush this day!   


AS YOU WISH: INCONCEIVABLE TALES FROM THE MAKING OF THE PRINCESS BRIDE

By Cary Elwes & Joe Layden  

If you're a fan of The Princess Bride or just enjoy behind the scenes stories of films then this is a great book for you!  It feels like a reunion with old friends who are reminiscing about fun times.  What's great about this book on audio is that it is read by Cary Elwes (who played Westley) and there are a lot of guest speakers including many of the actors and film makers from the movie.  This audio book is as delightful as the movie.    

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S

By Truman Capote

Like many people, I LOVE Breakfast at Tiffany's.  If you haven't read the book, then I suggest actually reading it because Truman Capote's writing is fantastic.  But I also really enjoyed listening to this book on audio because the story has a good pace and the descriptions and dialog are very visual.  Bonus for any BAT and Dexter crossover fans - the audio is narrated by Michael C. Hall!

THE ART OF HAPPINESS

By Howard C. Cutler & Dalai Lama XIV

The Art of Happiness is my meditation book.  I have listened to this book a few times over, because I will listen to about 10 minutes per day to help start my day off on the right foot.  It puts me in a good mood, and it puts life into perspective. 

 GIRL ONLINE SERIES

By Zoe Sugg

This book series turned into my newest guilty pleasure.  I got really into Penny and her love life and her friends.  Hannah Tinton narrates all three books, and she does a great job of bringing the characters to life.  The second book, Girl Online On Tour, was my favorite, because I thought the drama was really good.  I definitely caught myself yelling at my stereo a few times.  If you're a fan of YA books then I recommend checking this one out!

YEAR OF YES

By Shonda Rhimes

This book in one word - badassery.  Shonda Rhimes spent one whole year saying yes to anything she would normally say no to, and it makes for one empowering and inspiring book.  You don't have to be a fan of her TV shows to enjoy it either.  Like You are a Badass, this is another book that will make you excited to take on the day and kick some butt!


What audio books are your favorites?  I'd love some recommendations!
