Make Your Holiday Travels Fly By with These Audiobooks

by | December 21

I’m sure you are stuffing sweaters in a suitcase right now, or sending your last few emails, as I am, in the hopes of rushing out the door and running straight into the holidays. But before you leave, if you’re traveling or just looking for something to listen to while you wrap presents, I urge you to check out an audiobook. They are hands-free, perfect background noise for any holiday activities or travel, and some are even better to listen to than they are to read! I’ve got a few of these cued up to listen to while I’m wrapping presents (my most dreaded and last-minute holiday task). Hopefully, these audiobooks will add a little something extra to your holiday fun!

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (Audio)

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (Audio)

by Jenny Han

The first I recommend is the fantastic romantic YA story To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. This is such a sweet and fun story, a perfect treat to reward yourself as you fill up on holiday good tidings, or to make your holiday travels a little less stressful and a bit more fun.

The Last Black Unicorn (Audio)

by Tiffany Haddish

The next is The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish, if you want to laugh yourself to stitches while stirring some mulled wine on the stove. Haddish’s memoir/collection of essays reads like a stand-up special, especially because she reads it herself, and the stories are so dang funny.

You (Audio)

You (Audio)

by Caroline Kepnes

The last I have to recommend is for those of you who don’t suspend their thriller obsession just because there’s snow on the ground. If you want to be creeped out this holiday season, I would definitely add You by Caroline Kepnes to your download list. It’s a chilling story about a guy so obsessed with a girl he meets that he begins to stalk her. Told from his perspective, this is definitely a great “listen.” The story is also told to “you,” the object of his attention, so it’s even more unsettling to have Joe whispering into your ear.

Happy holidays everyone!
