Hello, my lovelies. Today, I’m sharing a quick update for the 2021 Audiobook Challenge. Did I stay on track to reach my goal? Do I have any favourite listens from the year?

I entered this audiobook challenge hosted by Kimberly @caffeinatedreviewer in 2020 and surprised myself by listening to 39 audiobooks. Therefore, I decided to up the ante in 2021 and aim for…

Marathoner (look Ma no hands) = 50+ audiobooks

From 1st January to 30th June, I’d listened to 28 audiobooks. Taking me to Binge Listener (Why read when someone can do it for you) level. 😉 I was happily on track to make it to 50+ audiobooks by the end of the year.

I must admit that my love for the audio format grew rapidly these past couple of years. Fuelled by my doctor’s recommendation that I cut back the number of hours I was looking at a screen in a bid to reduce the number of ocular migraines I suffer from. I’m happy to report that ocular migraines are now happening less frequently. The upside is that by the end of the year I had listened to 75 audiobooks!

Over-Achiever (Power Listener) = 75+ audiobooks

That’s not to say that EVERY audiobook I listen to is a ranging success, but I’m getting to know some of the narrators and have found some favourites. Did you read my 6 of the Best post about my favourite narrators?

What’s really fantastic is that I’ve found some fabulous new favourites – I LOVED Daemon Grudge by Stacey Brutger. Audiobooks helped me finish the Iron Druid Chronicles – what a great series! Plus, my list of great PWF titles is growing and you know how much I love the paranormal women’s fiction genre. 😉

I’m aiming to achieve the same listening goal again this year – Over-Achiever. I could probably listen to more but I’d never find the time to write all the extra reviews. 😘

Thanks for popping by and reading this quick half-year update for the 2021 Audiobook Challenge. Are you taking part in this year’s challenge? I’d love to chat, so drop me a comment below.

About Me

I'm in my late forties, my interests are varied but since menopause hit a few years ago, I find myself becoming a "grumpy old woman" all too frequently - where has my infinite patience gone!?! Lol!
I bought a Kindle in the summer of 2013 and haven't stopped reading since. If you want to know more about me, check out my blog -
