My favourite audiobooks 🎧📚

September has been an incredibly busy month for me (the busiest month of the year, if we’re being honest) and audiobooks have been my lifeline when I was commuting to and from classes. I know some people are still hesitant on giving audiobooks a chance, so I thought I would make a short list of some of my favourite audiobooks, that will both appeal to beginners as well as seasoned readers. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do if you give them a chance!


Synopsis: A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous break up.
Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the real reason why they split at the absolute height of their popularity…until now.
Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go-Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock and roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.
Another band getting noticed is The Six, led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.
Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.

Why I love it: What is "anotherbookworm" post if I don't mention Daisy Jones and the Six at least once? This book converted me to audiobooks and the cast was so spectacular that it made the book part of my top 3 all-time favourite books. It is is told through articles and interviews so the format couldn't be better for an audiobook, not to mention an all- star cast. If you need an extra push, the book is currently being adapted by Reese Witherspoon's production company with Sam Claflin and Riley Keough in the leading roles!

Black Booktubers

Hello lovelies!

Chances are most of you also enjoy watching videos by Booktubers and with the attention the Black Lives Matter has rightfully received, I realized that I did not follow many Black booktubers and that’s a shame. Through the “Black Booktuber” tag I discovered so many fun, interesting and amazing booktubers.

If you really wish to amplify Black voices, do not only follow them as that seems performative but engage and comment! (If you want of course).

Sincerly Tahiry
