Ok, so I wouldn't call myself an audiobook connoisseur, but over the last year or so I have really gotten into listening to audiobooks. Some have been really good, and some not so much. So I decided to share some of my favourites with you all :)
The Princess Diaries (Take Two) by Meg Cabot. I read the first book, and it was a mission and a half to be honest. So for the second I decided to listen to it on audible and thank god for that. It was way more enjoyable, although mostly because Anne Hathaway read the story which made it really cool. Honestly, the narrator either makes or breaks an audiobook, and Anne Hathaway did a really good job. I'm planning on listening to the 3rd one eventually, but after that I am pretty sure someone else narrates them.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Anne Brashares. I am pretty sure this was my first proper audiobook! I listened to it on my way to my prac last year and I really enjoyed it. The story was decent, but I think Angela Goethals, the narrator, did an amazing job of bringing the story to life. She would very barely change her voice, but you were easily able to distinguish between the four characters. Her expression was also great, I feel like I wouldn't have found it as amusing if I had of read the story myself. I tried listening tot he second book though and it was a different narrator which I really didn't like, so I haven't continued it. Maybe one day.
Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven was an AMAZING audiobook. First of all, the book is hilarious so I was constantly laughing while I was listening to it. The book is also SO addicting. So if you start listening, make sure you have a good 11 hours to spare. I loved this book so much, and Andi Arndt was a great narrator. She had really great expression and the tone and pitch of her voice were pleasing to the ears haha!
These next two I am putting together as they are in the same series and read by the same narrators. Burying Water and Becoming Rain by K. A. Tucker, have to be my all time favourite audio books. Not only are the books fantastic, but the two narrators Elizabeth Louise and Josh Goodman were fantastic. Not going to lie, when I first started listening, I didn't like Elizabeth's voice very much, but that quickly changed. Honestly, I don't even know how to describe it. I thought it might just be because of that particular book however, after listening to Becoming Rain as well I realised the narrators were just awesome! And damn, Josh Goodman has a NICE voice! How is that even possible?! But dayum.
If you have any suggestions of audiobooks I should read, please let me know!
Oh, I just realised I lied. The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants was not my first audiobook! Landline by Rainbow Rowell was! Landline is one of my favourites however, I only listened to half of it on audio because it wasn't fast enough for my liking!
Honestly, Audible is such an amazing app. I highly recommend it for those of you who haven't tried it yet. you pay i think $14/month and you get one credit for an audiobook (it rolls over if you don't use the credit in that month so don't even worry). I just really like it for books that I'm not sure if I want to read, or for books that I don't own and really want to read. I highly recommend trying any of the books mentioned above :)
