Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Audiobooks You Should Listen To
Top Ten Tuesday / September 20, 2016

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish.This feature gives a weekly Top Ten list. We all love lists, right? This week’s theme is Top Ten Audiobooks You Should Listen To I was very hesitant to try audiobooks in the beginning, but figured it was worth a shot. Turns out I love them and they have quickly become a staple for my reading habits.
