AudioFile Magazine’s Best of Romance 2017

cover-2017-best-500x382

 

Every year, AudioFile Magazine reviews countless romance audiobooks and distills them into a “Best of the Year” list. The result rivals any binge-able Netflix queue. 2017 is no different. It offers a selection of stories that transport listeners hearts and minds back in time, through thrilling adventures, contemporary and paranormal worlds, and more. I’m excited to dive into Carolyn Brown’s The Strawberry Hearts Diner and Jane of Austin by Hillary Manton Lodge, big city and small town present-day tales set in Texas. You’ll find plenty of warm, sweetness and sexy chills to suit your tastes, too. For your browsing pleasure, I’ve organized the books by sub-genre. Check out other category lists on the AudioFile eZine!

On Omnivore Bibliosaur I write about queer works, however I also contribute audiobook reviews to AudioFile Magazine. Since June, I have listened to a wide range of fiction and nonfiction books for teens and adults, such as Cosmos by Carl Sagan and Freak Show by James St. James. I did not, however, review any of the “Best of Romance” titles listed below. If you have any favorites that did not make this list, I would love to hear about them in the comment section below! I’m also interested in what you think should appear on a 2017 “best of queer romance” featuring female protagonists. Happy listening!
