Top Ten Tuesday – Recent Audio Favorites

March 25, 2019 Bonnie Top Ten Tuesday 36 Comments

I haven’t always been a listener of audiobooks, but ever since they became a staple of my daily life, I can’t remember life without them. I mean, I have to listen to something when I’m on a long drive, or doing dishes, or doing some monotonous work task, and sometimes music just doesn’t cut it. I’ve done plenty of “favorite audiobook” posts in the past, so today’s post just serves as an update to the last ten that ended up being really fantastic listens.

    I’m not fully engaged in audiobooks… can’t justify an Audible subscription (not when I own so many unread books) and my library has limited offerings. That said, my favourites have nearly always been books read by the authors themselves (Richard Flannagan reading Narrow Road to the Deep North and Rob Lowe reading his autobiography). I also like audios where accents are done really well – for example The Glorious Heresies.

    Scythe has been on my physical TBR for ages but I don’t know if I’m going to like it or not? I think I might try the audio for it, I’m glad you enjoyed it!
    I recently finished reading To Kill a Kingdom, I really liked it!
    I keep seeing Becoming everywhere, I’m going to cave and get it I think XD
    Happy Reading! <3

    I’ve read To Kill a Kingdom, Scythe and Becoming, but all in physical format. I haven’t really got into audiobooks, I’d like to read more of them though.

    I love the title of Gabriel Union’s book. I can TOTALLY relate lately. I don’t use audiobooks but am enjoying everyone’s posts this week. I went with a musical direction.

    PHEW. So many intriguing picks on here. I’ve read a lot of these already so I feel like they’d definitely be easier for me to get into, than audiobooks that I’m otherwise not familiar with. I’m trying to fix my focus issues re: audiobooks this year. Or at least, improve upon them! Haha. Thank you for sharing.

    I used to hate audiobooks, but now (like you) I can’t remember my life without them. I listen to audiobooks when I’m cleaning, driving, or doing something with my hands (like crocheting or mowing the lawn). They’ve changed my life! They’re the only reason I get to read some days. Three kids are exhausting, haha.

    The Poet X is one of my favorites, and I’m currently listening to One Day in December. You should try Royally Screwed by Emma Chase (the whole series really), The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout, the Age of Legends series by Kelley Armstrong, Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch, and Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley! Those are some of my favorites with amazing narrators. Dane of Thieves and The Female of the Species were great, too. Oh, Autoboyography! The list is long, haha. (Seafire, the Kate Daniels series (although that narrator took some getting used to, now I’m addicted), Circe, They Both Die at the End…) πŸ˜‰
