2020 Audiobook Challenge

Hello fellow bookworms. Welcome to my Audiobook Challenge 2020 page!

Back in the summer of 2018, I signed up for an Audible UK subscription, consequently the number of stories that I’ve listened to has increased year on year.

It wasn’t love at first sight (or sound? 🤷‍♀️ ) but over the last couple of years I’ve found my groove and now automatically reach for my buds and open the Audible app first before my Kindle app!!

A couple of months ago, I decided to take advantage of my new found enjoyment and therefore, signed up for my first ever audiobook challenge. 🥳 WooHoo! 🥳

The lovely Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer co-hosts this annual Audiobook Challenge with Loupe @ Hot Listens and this page will track my progress towards my goal.

Achievement Levels

  • Newbie (I’ll give it a try) 1-5
  • Weekend Warrior (I’m getting the hang of this) 5-10
  • Stenographer (can listen while multitasking) 10-15
  • Socially Awkward (don’t talk to me) 15-20
  • Binge Listener (why read when someone can do it for you) 20-30
  • My Precious (I had my earbuds surgically implanted) 30+

If you’re taking part in this challenge, I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

Finally, I’m linking my reviews for the audiobooks that I listen to as part of this challenge as they’re published here on my blog. Click on the book title to read it and you’ll be whisked away to a new tab. 😉

  1. Great job on this challenge! I didn’t sign up for it this year, but I did it last year and got really hooked on reading audiobooks. I used to dislike them and now I absolutely love them. 🙂

    1. It’s amazing how our opinions can change, right? Lol! I’m getting hooked on audios now too.

  2. Congrats on doing so well in the challenge!

      Thanks. I’ve been bitten by the audio bug and I’m really getting into listening instead of reading a story.

  3. You’re doing great in this challenge! These audiobooks all sound interesting!

    1. Flora says:

      Thanks. I’m definitely evolving into a bigger audio fan this year.

  4. That is an amazing amount of books for just the first half of the year! I hope you get to your goal by the end of the year ♡

      Thanks Mikky, I’ve surprised myself!! Lol! I’ve been suffering with ocular migraines this year, so listening to a story rather than reading it has helped my eyes.

  5. Sophia Rose says:

    You’re doing great. I love the PNR/UF books you have been listening to.

    1. Flora says:
