Finding time to do the things we love isn't always easy, but if one of your 2018 resolutions is to read more books, there is a way to squeeze it into your existing routine: Audiobooks. The list of books available to download is pretty exhaustive—in fact, Audible has over 100,000 in its library, spanning self-help, fiction, and memoirs.

So where to start? Audible has just released its annual Best of Year list, a compilation of the top-rated titles of 2017, as voted by users and in-house editors. Divided into content categories, including true crime, fantasy, and business, it's the perfect way to narrow your search. Still overwhelmed? Start with the overall book of the year, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas or consider the other highly rated books on its list:

1. Business: You Are a Badass at Making Money

2. True Crime: American Kingpin

3. Self Development: Black Privilege

4. Fantasy: The Bear and the Nightingale

5. Fiction: Lincoln in the Bardo
