Grey’s Shelves // An Avalanche of Memoirs – Audiobook TBR 2019

Thriving - Explanation - Grey's Shelves

I really love Audiobooks

I can read while I do things I hate like the dishes, cleaning the house and driving?????

I had an Audible account a few years ago when I was struggling to read and found it really helped me to get back into it for a while.

But then I had to cancel my membership because I couldn’t afford it.

Well, I decided in 2019 that I wanted to get back into it.

I started by trying to listen to fiction books and quickly realised I cannot pay attention to those like I used to.

But I did find that memoirs are great for me to listen to because it’s basically like watching a stand-up comedy show except you can’t see anything.

Which sounds awful??? But is actually really great!

I have branched out into less comedic non-fiction and found that I was still able to concentrate.

I’ve also tentatively dipped my toe back into fiction audiobooks with a book I’ve already read and that was amazing so I’m getting there.

There are so many books I want to read via audio that I thought I should put up a TBR while I’m on a TBR roll.

Mostly it’s to keep me motivated to continue listening to books and to work my way back to being comfortable with fiction via audio but also I thought it would be great for people to see what Audible has to offer and what I like to use it to read!

But I won’t just be listening to all of these on Audible because quite a few of them are available at my library through Overdrive so I highly recommend you check the Overdrive selection for your library first because why use one of your Audible credits when you can read it for free?!

Also, not everyone can afford an Audible account so Overdrive is a great alternative!

But since I first starting writing this post, I’ve also signed up for Scribd because, well the world was ending and why the fuck not right?

I don’t really know how it works? Can you just listen to an unlimited amount???

If you would like to buy any of the following books please consider using my Book Depository Affiliate link!

Basically, the waiting emoji just means I haven’t read the book before it and/or am waiting for all the books in the series to come out/own before I begin the series.

I’ll also be using emojis to indicate which platform you can read these books on. I won’t be including Overdrive though since that depends on your libraries collection.

💚 – Scribd

The plan is to strike out any books I read throughout the year, with the date read next to them in green.

And I’ll be striking out books I’ve DNF’d, with a date in blue.

I started this list while I was on semi-hiatus so there are books I have already read.
