I listened to a lot of great books this year; it’s difficult to pick my favorites! In 2017, I rated nine audiobooks at 4.5 stars and seven at 5 stars! There were also several 4 stars. My narrator of the year is Renee Raudman, who narrated three of my 5 star books (White Hot, Wildfire, and One Fell Sweep, all by Ilona Andrews).
