Stuck on what to get people for the holidays? Audiobooks make a great gift for your loved ones! Don’t forget to add these audiobooks to your cart, and heck, why not get yourself an audiobook too? We won’t tell.
To: The Person Who Brightens Up Your Life
Give: The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher
For 30 years, The Shell Seekers has delighted readers and has made plenty of must-read cozy lists and has been included in countless book clubs. Now, for the first time, it is available as an unabridged audiobook narrated by Captian America’s Hayley Atwell and is perfect for that person who loves warm literary novels. The Shell Seekers is a family saga set during World War II and follows Penelope Keeling’s life, family, scandals, and romantic interests. It’s a great audiobook to listen to while warming up by the fire with a hot cup of cocoa in hand.
To: Your Friend That Has A Christmas Tree Up Before Thanksgiving
Give: Mr. Dickens and His Carol by Samantha Silva
In Mr. Dickens and His Carol, Silva embodies the cheer and whimsy of the holiday
season with her witty take on a beloved classic. With a re-imagined Scrooge and sprinkles of
historical detail throughout, Silva nods to Dickens’ original tale while still making the story her
own. Narrated by Hamilton Star, Euan Morton, this audiobook will get you major bonus
points if your gift recipient is just as obsessed with Hamilton as we are.
To: The Adventurer
Give: Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson
Not only is Oathbringer the most pre-ordered audiobook, but it is listening gold for those who love to delve into intricate storylines. It’s a great audiobook for those who don’t mind the commitment (a little over 55 hours of listening), and are ready to fall in love with Oathbringer’s numerous characters and Sanderson’s world-building. This is the third book in the Stormlight Archive, so you might consider also buying the previous two audiobooks, The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance, if your gift recipient hasn’t listened to them. Call it a bundle of epicness.
To: Someone Who Loves Uplifting Stories (or who needs one)
Give: The Widom of Sundays by Oprah Winfrey
The Wisdom of Sundays is insightful and thought-provoking (it’s from Oprah, after all). Listening to the conversations in the audiobook will give listeners an eye-opening perspective on life and the audiobook is perfect for someone embarking on a spiritual journey.
To: The Thrill Seeker
Give: The Breakdown by B.A. Paris
For your friend who couldn’t put down Gone Girl or Girl on the Train, The Breakdown audiobook is a no-brainer gift. In The Breakdown, Cass hasn’t been the same since the night in the woods when she saw a woman sitting in her car, later to be found dead. Things in Cass’s life have been off and her mental state is constantly being questioned. It’s an enthralling listen that keeps you going until the end, and asks “If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?”
To: Your Friend That Loves Armie Hammer
Give: Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman
Because, Armie Hammer. If you have any doubts, read this.
