A list of the best Audiobooks for women

I’m publishing this post today to share my favorite audiobooks with you. I mentioned last week that I have transformed my commute by listening to audiobooks during my long drive times.

These are the audiobooks I consider to be the best audiobooks for women and parents as I read (listen) them over the next few weeks/months. I have found audiobooks to be a great way to “read” the books I’ve had on my night stand, Kindle or on my list for a long time. I also find that I’m learning, developing and growing by listening to audiobooks on my long commute each day. For this, I’m very thankful.

I will update this post frequently so feel free to check back for more recommendations. I will also link over here from my Coffee Date series. If you don’t already have Audible to listen to audiobooks, consider a free trial. You can try Audible and get two free audiobooks.

Audiobooks I love for women (most of them are completely appropriate for men as well)

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. See yesterday’s post for details on this.

Better than Before: Mastering the Habits of our Everyday Lives by Gretchen Rubin. This one really helped me get in the habit of running again and a few other positive habits. I shared more about this one here.

Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin. Another great option with a focus on making small changes that make everyday life at home simply better.

The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You by Jessica N. Turner. I just started this one, but so far I really like it. I’ll remove it if I change my mind but as of now this one is a winner.

Why Not Me by Mindy Kaling. Just hilarious.

Audiobooks I love for parents

No Bad Kids, Toddler Discipline Without Shame by Janet Lansbury. This is a great book if you want to take a new approach to discipline. I’ve found it to be incredibly helpful with Bodhi and the approach is starting to come into play with Ezra as well.

Hands Free Mama: A Guide to Putting Down the Phone, Burning the To-Do List, and Letting Go of Perfection to Grasp What Really Matters! by Rachel Macy Stafford.  This is another one I just started but it gets rave reviews and I like it so far.

I’ve listened to a few others, but they weren’t worthy of a recommendation. This list will be frequently updated and shared. Let me know if you have favorites I should consider.
