53 of 192—My Favorite Audiobook Listens in 2023

Share to Your Social Media

These are the books that stood out to me as favorites as I was reviewing the audiobooks I listened to in 2023.

I listened to 192 audiobooks in 2023 which is down slightly from the 250 I listened to in 2022.

While still quite a few, I listened to less as 2023 was much busier with a wedding, multiple large-scale family events, more travel, etc.

Some of the audiobooks I read are short and many were massive 30-60 hour listens! You’ll find a wide variety as you read my monthly lists of audiobooks I listened to. There are romances, murder mysteries, dramas, historical fiction, nonfiction, self-help, religion, and more. 

I do not have them in any kind of order and the series of books that I love are at the bottom of this list.
