Reading is one of THE best ways to improve your fluency level in a language. So whether you are wanting to improve your own Spanish skills, or those of your kids, you’ll definitely want to check out all the Spanish audio books Audible has to offer. Each time I found another Spanish audio book that was available I did a little happy dance. I was freaking out how many are available. I hope you enjoy this list!
Most of the Spanish audio books listed here you can click through and listen to a sample of the Audible version in Spanish to make sure you like the voice of the narrator. I know that for some people, the narrator can make or break the ease of listening. Each sample I listened to had great narrators in my opinion though!

De cómo Tía Lola vino
de visita a quedarse por Julia Álvarez (How Tía Lola Came to Visit Stay by Julia Alvarez)
I love the Tía Lola books!! Not all of them are available on Audible, so be sure to check out the paperback versions of the other stories in the series.
De cómo Tía Lola aprendió a enseñar por Julia Álvarez
El principito por Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Wonder: La lección de August por R.J. Palacio
I am in love with this story. In our family it has helped so much to exemplify the importance of kindness, self love, and familial closeness. And it happens to be at the perfect reading level for me in Spanish. Ha!

La ciudad de las bestias por Isabel Allende
El reino del dragón de oro (Libro 2 de la trilogía La ciudad de las bestias) por Isabel Allende
El bosque de los pigmeos (Libro 3 de la trilogía La ciudad de las bestias) por Isabel Allende
Yo no soy tu perfecta hija mexicana por Erika L. Sánchez
La casa en Mango Street por Sandra Cisneros
I read this book in college. Such a GOOD read, especially if you live in the United States. Cisneros gives a wonderful voice to the Chicano experience.
Don Quijote de la Mancha por Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
My first-ever Audible purchase!! There are no words for this book. It’s written in old-time Spanish – even an advanced listen for native Spanish speakers. If you’ve never read it and English is your first language . . . be prepared to look up lots of words. It might even help to have a hard copy for jotting down notes or following along. But it’s SO worth it!!
Mi historia por Michelle Obabma (Becoming by Michelle Obama)
Who has read this one?! I’ve been wanting to, so I was very excited to see it’s available in Spanish!!
Cien años de soledad por Gabriel García Márquez
Another must-read. This list is full of them. Ha! If you haven’t had the experience of reading a magical realism story – this one is a good place to start!!!
El amor en los tiempos del cólera por Gabriel García Márquez
Or this one!
La casa de los espíritus por Isabel Allende
Isabel Allende is another magical realism author. This book is one of her most well-known. I’ve read her collection of short stories in English, The Stories of Eva Luna, but I’ve yet to read any of her novels.
Have you read any of her works? I’m curious to know your favorites.
Paula por Isabel Allende
Como agua para chocolate por Laura Esquivel
Another classic of magical realism. We watched the Spanish movie adaptation of this novel in one of my Spanish classes in college. Raise your hand if you love to read books that have been turned into films? (Me! Me!)
Man! What an amazing list of books. There are soooo many more available, so be sure to head over to Audible and look around!! And let me know which book you choose to listen to first!!
¡Feliz Spanish audiobooking! xo, Kali
