I love reading. Though sometimes I don’t have time to read books. That is why I love audiobooks. I can listen to them while I am working or cooking dinner. I have a list for you: 5 audiobooks to listen to this week.
Since we moved last year, our library does not have a great selection of audiobooks so I joined Audible Plus because I can listen to all the audiobooks I want each month. But you can get these even if you don’t have the membership. Or sign up for the free trial then cancel.
Audiobooks to listen to this week
I’ve selected a variety of books because we all have different tases. There are thousands of books included in Audible Plus catalog so start with a few good ones for your free trial.
Given Away: Korean Adoptees Tell Their Stories
By: Glenn Morey, Julie Morey
Narrated by: Jeena Yi, Allison Hiroto, James Chen, Cindy Kay, Glenn Morey
Length: 2 hrs and 23 mins
Release Date: 11-5-20
I find international adoption to be interesting because of we’re just now hearing the point of view of the adoptees. Korean adoptee Glenn Morey and his wife, Julie Morey, interviewed 100 Korean adoptees from around the world. This a fascinating look into the lives of these inter-country adoptees and their experiences of abandonment, relinquishment, orphanages, triumph and resilience. This is an audiobook that all people will find interesting.

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars
Corrie Ten Boom and her family were leaders in the Dutch underground during the Nazi invasion of Holland. The family hid Jewish people and all but Corrie died in concentration camps. This gripping biography is one of the courage of a quiet Christian.

I love this whole Winston Brothers series by Penny Reid and, luckily, all the books are included in the Audible Plus plan so you can listen to as many as you want with your membership. This is a spinoff of her Knitting in the City series.

This American classic is a book everyone should read at least once. I first read it in middle school and didn’t fully understand it so I’m glad I listened to it again.

Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars
North and South is one of my all time favorite BBC miniseries. I finally listened to the book a couple years ago and it did not disappoint! If you love historical fiction you’ll enjoy this! I think it’s time for me to listen to it again because I have to watch the movie or read the book every year now.
