My Audiobook Year and the Return of the Audiobook Flowchart

My audiobook flowchart was such a big hit last year, that I’ve decided to bring it back. Follow this chart (click on the image to enlarge it), answer the questions, and find your next audiobook. Links to the reviews for each are below. Let me know what book you get in the comments.

Since last June, I’ve listened to 31 audiobooks. This chart includes some of my favorites from the past year (but not necessarily published within the last year).

    Love the flowchart! I think the only audiobook I’ve listened to which is on it is “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me”, which I’m listening to now and loving.

      Have you read Bossypants? If you like the Mindy Kaling book, you’ll probably like that one.

    I adore your flowchart! I listened to and loved THE END OF THE AFFAIR (narrated by Michael Kitchen), THE KING’S SPEECH, and THE INVISIBLE ONES. I’ve got to listen to READY PLAYER ONE! What am I waiting for?

    I was wondering how I missed your review of THE SELECTION, because it sounds interesting, but turns out you haven’t reviewed it yet =)

      There is also a new version narrated by Colin Firth. I kind of want to try it.

    Flow chart is uber creative and I adore it. I’m a newbie to audio books so I’m always looking for suggestions. New to this blog but I’ll be reading up for sure.

    This flowchart is AWESOME! I read THE SELECTION in print. I despised the book, but I think I should have listened to it on audio, since I’m a big fan of Amy Rubinate.

    Aren’t you clever! I’m thinking I missed this last year because I was overseas during this week. And of course this year I’m completely in the weeds with my kids and my family and didn’t do a single audio thing (except one audio review). Boo me.

    Oh, I love flowcharts. So tempted to flip a coin and follow it to my next listen.

    There are a few books here that I’ve really wanted to listen to but haven’t yet, including The Art of Fielding and The Invisible Ones.

      Both are very good choices. But neither have zombies.

    Ha!! Flowchart is awesome! I’ve never mapped out my listening before but it would be interesting. I’ve found that my listening tastes are somewhat different than my reading tastes.

      Mine vary from print to audio as well. I rarely read any nonfiction in print.

    First time through, I got Ready Player One or Feed, both of which I loved, although I did read Feed in print. Second time through, I got The Selection, so I’ll have to see if my library has that one. Cool idea!

      I saved it! No idea why it went to spam. Hope you enjoy The Selection if you end up listening – my review will be up later this week.
