To access audiobooks, click or tap on the 'Browse' tab, then look for a category called 'Word'

Under the 'Word' category, you'll find a playlist called 'Audiobooks'. This playlist curates a few chapters from various audiobooks, so you can listen and decide if you'd like to finish up the whole audiobook.

From classics to fiction and young adult, here are some of the audiobooks you'll find on Spotify:

1. The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins

All three unabridged audiobooks - The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay - are narrated by Carolyn McCormick, but there is also a special edition of The Hunger Games that is narrated by Tatiana Maslany.

2. The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater

Stiefvater's spellbinding series follows a girl named Blue Sargent whose life is slowly taken over by adventures with four boys from a nearby private school - and one of them is destined to die. The audiobooks are narrated by Will Patton.

The series has four books: 'The Raven Boys'; 'The Dream Thieves'; 'Blue Lily, Lily Blue'; and 'The Raven King'.

3. Love & Misadventure by Lang Leav

The Australia-based poet could be credited for single-handedly igniting the love for modern-day poetry in young readers - and this is the book that kickstarted it.

You can also listen to 'Lullabies' and 'Memories', all of which are narrated by Elizabeth Cottle.

4. Mortal Engines series by Philip Reeve

You've watched the movie, and now you can listen to the entire quartet about a futuristic, steampunk London.

All four books - 'Mortal Engines', 'Predator's Gold', 'Infernal Devices', and 'A Darkling Plain' - are narrated by Barnaby Edwards.

5. Goosebumps series by R.L. Stine

There are 34 Goosebumps books available on Spotify. Go scare yourself silly.

6. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

The classic novel follows the lives of the four March sisters - Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy - as they transition from adolescence to adulthood. Loosely based on Alcott's own life and her three sisters, this version - which also includes the sequel 'Little Men' - is narrated by Susie Berneis.

7. Notes From A Nervous Planet by Matt Haig

The follow-up to Matt Haig's bestselling memoir, 'Reasons To Stay Alive', offers "a broader look at how modern life feeds our anxiety, and how to live a better life". The audiobook is narrated by the author.
