AudioFile Magazine’s Best of Fiction 2017

cover-2017-best-500x382
Every year, AudioFile Magazine reviews countless audiobooks and distills them into a “Best Fiction of 2017” list. Does it seem like a Sisyphean task, especially when every week more books are released? Maybe. Yet, here they are with a “stocking” full of audio treats that you can listen to and share with family, friends, co-workers, the barista at your favorite coffee shop… You can read reviews of this year’s best fiction by clicking on the book titles below. 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. I did not, however, review any of the “Best of Fiction” 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 fiction” featuring female protagonists. Happy listening!
