If you’re anything like us, you’ve always got a long reading list full to the brim of brilliant books to get your teeth into. It's a wonder we found time to do anything else. If you love getting stuck into a juicy novel or insightful autobiography but struggle to find the time for reading, you're likely already familiar with audiobooks.

Not only do they allow you to multitask while still taking in the glorious words, but they're also often read by the actual author (oh hey Louis Theroux), or by the biggest names in Hollywood (we’re looking at you Nicole Kidman), or you can get festive with a seasonal classic from a equally classic voice (shout out to Hugh Grant reading us A Christmas Carol).

We’ve put together an extensive list of the best audiobooks going to give you inspiration for your next listen - or bragging points if you've already caught up.
