7 Great Audiobooks for This Long Weekend (Inspired by the Top 100)

Are you going away this long weekend? Time to download some audiobooks.

Audiobook sales are booming as readers everywhere discover that you don’t have to actually read to read … you can also listen. Audiobooks are now a popular way to pass time on the commute to work, either listening in the car or while you’re on public transport. But they’re also great for when you’re on longer trips. This long weekend, lineup some great listening with Bolinda Audio.

Here are a few great tales from the 2021 Better Reading Top 100 that will help pass time while you drive.

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

It sits at #1 on our 2021 Top 100 … You’ve read the book, now listen to it. Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This moving story for both adults and older kids follows Liesel, a girl growing up in Nazi Germany, who steals books and finds comfort in words.

Cloudstreet by Tim Winton

Perfect for a road trip, an Australian classic that takes the listener into the world of two wholly believable working-class families in post-WWII Perth.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

We loved the book and the TV series … now try the audio version. Pirriwee Public is a beautiful little beachside primary school where children are taught that ‘sharing is caring’. So how has the annual School Trivia Night ended in full-blown riot with one dead parent?

Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton

In Trent Dalton’s ABIA award speech, he thanked Stig Wemyss, the voice actor who brilliantly narrates the book. Have a listen to both Dalton’s smash hit, and Wemyss’s captivating audio narration.

The Cake Maker’s Wish by Josephine Moon

Josephine Moon writes delicious women’s fiction, perfect for a road trip. The Cake Maker’s Wish is an uplifting and heart-warming story about the moments that change your life forever, human kindness, and being true to yourself.

Seven Ancient Wonders by Matthew Reilly

My teenage son is dyslexic and loves Matthew Reilly’s audiobooks, and Seven Ancient Wonders is available on Borrowbox. In this, a rare solar event is coming, and the time has come to locate the pieces of an ancient golden capstone.
