This post is sponsored by Audible Escape, formerly known as the Audible Romance Package.  The Audible Escape subscription allows you to binge listen to thousands of romance audiobooks. You can borrow up to 10 audiobooks from the subscription at a time, return them whenever you like, then borrow more. If you’re new to Audible Escape, you can try it free for one month. Then, a subscription is $6.95 a month for Audible members and Kindle Unlimited members, and $12.95 per month for non members.  We have a giveaway for a chance to win one of ten 1-year Audible Escape subscriptions in this entry so read on for details!  It’s time for traveling and waiting in line, and noshing and possibly spending time in places or surrounded by folks you’d rather not be with – which is okay if the food is good. I hope the food where you are is excellent. But if it’s not, or if you’re full and couldn’t eat another bite (mmm, pie) we’ve got a collection of audiobooks here that you can binge-listen to, including (of course) some with holiday themes! You can even pretend you’re on a conference call and mutter responses while you listen….

Aarya breaks down all the elements that worked for her inside a book coming out on the 31st (no spoilers!) and narrows her list of 22 books down to 5, all of which explore themes of family and identity. TW/CW – at 27:19 mention of beating up an assaulter and of violence, and at 52:25, there’s a discussion of character with hella-Islamophobia (there’s a spoken warning for this one, so skip 30 seconds or so) I hope you enjoy this reading recap, and that you share with us your favorite books that you read in the past year, too! Right now, for a limited time, you can get 3 months of Audible for just $6.95…
