With so many amazing audiobook releases this year, it can be tough to choose what to listen to next. Luckily, Audible has done the work for you with their 2018 Best Audiobooks of the Year roundup.

How are they defining "the best"? Here's what the staff at Audible had to say: "The best tells a story that educates, entertains, and enlightens listeners, or expresses the zeitgeist—often all of the above." It's also pretty telling that many of the titles on their list are winners and nominees in the 10th Annual Goodreads Choice Awards.

Which of these top audiobooks catch your eye? Don't forget to add your favorites to your Want to Read Shelf!

Niki Calypso by David Sedaris should be on this list. His narration of his own books is superb, and Calypso is his best book yet!

Jessica A Newfoundlander in Canada


message 10: by AlliaAmethyst (new)

AlliaAmethyst Nevermore’s amazing! The world that Jessica Townsend created in the world of Nevermore is whimsical but still delves into real world issues faced by us.


message 11: by Annette (new)

Annette Six of crows


message 12: by Bonnie (new)

Bonnie Kalter "The Tatooist of Auschwitz" read by Richard Armitage. He captured the essence of the story and successfully navigated the different characters which made them live.


Dr. Denise Giblin Becoming needs to be included.


message 14: by V (new)

V "CAKE" all 4 books by J. Bengtsson
"The Perfect Mother" by Aimee Molloy


message 15: by Michael (new)

Michael The Fix by Ryan Burr.
Narrator, Alex Perlman nails this story of a college student athlete getting caught up in gambling, then having to do whatever it takes to free himself of his addiction, before he flushes his potential career down the toilet.
Whether you love sports or hate them, give this audiobook a try. You'll be surprised.
