Once again this year I’m going for “My Precious”. I failed in 2015 by 1 book! How sad is that? I am determined to at the very least hit this goal level but strive for a mid-range total of 40. I’m hoping I’ll get it together and start walking again (once it’s not so dark. I’m afraid of the outdoors, alone, in the dark) which means more listening time.
Below are my results of the 2016 Audiobook Challenge. I will list the audiobooks I did finish but have not reviewed. This will update as I get the reviews done. We’ve finished another year, how did you do? Did you meet your goals for 2016?

I think I did a really great job this year. Much better than 2015. I had joined for “My Precious” (30-50) and I made that. My personal goal of 40 didn’t quite get reached. I loved every minute of these audiobooks! Again, when I get to the unlinked book’s review, it will go to the review, so make sure to keep coming back to watch what my thoughts were on those audios.
This is one of my favorite challenges. I hope that you’ll join us in 2017 for The 2017 Audiobook Challenge. The challenge is hosted by Hot Listens and as a new co-host – The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Give your ears the enjoyment of audiobooks in 2017!
