14 Best Fantasy Audiobooks to Stream When You Don't Have Time for Summer Reading

For all the dreamers out there, fantasy books, movies, and TV shows are one of the best ways to get outside of your head and be transported to another world. Using your imagination can give you relief from the stresses of everyday life—maybe that's why Game of Thrones is so good—and the best fantasy audiobooks happen to make it that much easier to fall in love with the imaginary sagas and characters. There's just something about listening to the tales of faraway places that lets you take a journey without ever having to step out your front door.

It's worth noting that the vivid details and extensive plot lines often make these books particularly lengthy (and most are part of a series), so listening can be an especially good option for those who aren't the quickest readers. Plus, audiobooks can seriously spice up your commute anywhere or calm you down when you feel like your eyes don't want to process reading one more word for the day. Have we convinced you yet? Download one of the 14 best fantasy audiobooks and see where the story takes you.
