Audible's Five-star favorites

One of the cool things audible does each year, is provide a list of the books that received the most 5-star reviews broken down by a number of categories. In addition they provide their "Best of Everything" indicating the books with the highest 5-star ratings regardless of category. I'm pleased to say I've made the "Best of Everything" twice.
  • 2012: Theft of Swords
  • 2013: The Crown Tower
While I didn't have any books hit this year, there are a lot of great ones that did, and I wanted to share them in the hopes of you finding a great new book to try.  Here's the selections for "The Best of Everything"
  •  The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
  • Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King
  • The One by Kiera Cass
  • Yes Please by Amy Poehler
  • Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson
  • Influx by Daniel Suarez
  • Shattered by Kevin Hearne
  • Capital by Thomas Piketty
  • The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness
Seeing as how I write Science Fiction and Fantasy, this list is also one I care a great deal about.  So here are this years top-rated audio books for those genres:

  • The Dragons of Dorcastle by Jack Campbell
