AudioFile Picks: Audiobook Reviews 12/15/17

It's no secret that we at RT love reading romance! And if you happen to see us with headphones on, but no book in hand, it's likely that we're listening to an audiobook. But audiobooks depend on more than just the plot, it takes an excellent narrator to bring the story to life. This is where AudioFile comes in, a print-and-digital magazine that reviews audiobooks so you know which stories are worth listening to. We've partnered with AudioFile to bring you a selection of romantic audiobook reviews every week!
