I’ve never attempted to get into the Robert Jordan Wheel of Time series which although looking interesting seems like a huge time investment. I feel like I’ll be reading them a whole year or something. Actually, one of the first books by Sanderson that got me hooked were the ones from the Mistborn Trilogy (I’ll take a trilogy any time – much more easy to tackle).

The story and the way it was written was very engaging. The Way of Kings audiobook costs two credits on Audible which was the reason I didn’t get it right away but I finally bit the bullet. I’ve been craving something as captivating as Mistborn was and when I hit the Play button immediately knew I shouldn’t have waited. The Way of Kings is worth the price even if you’re not an Audible subscriber and looks like it’s going to be another excellent series from Sanderson.

Do You Think Self-Help Audiobooks Are Useful?

I haven’t been very active with writing reviews lately, mainly because of my summer laziness, consisting of traveling, going to the beach a lot and other fun offline activities. But all good things come to an end as they say and so does the warm and fun summer season. It’s already fall around here and my regular blogging schedule of two posts per week will be returning soon, starting off with a couple of audiobook reviews I’m working on.

In the mean time, I got this idea while casually browsing Audible’s catalog. What about self-help audiobooks? Are they actually any good or just the same regurgitated new-age nonsense? I selected a few that seemed interesting and have listed them bellow, but the more important part is if you guys have read/listened to any of these and just your general recommendations on which ones I should grab first. 🙂
