Blogtober Day Eighteen: Audiobook Edition

fullsizeoutput_209d

Hi, lovelies! Let’s talk about audiobooks. I know not everyone listens to them, but I thought Spooktober would be the perfect time to talk about some really well-done audiobooks that would be perfect for this time of year. I’ve listened to a fair share of them in the past year, some good, some bad, but today I’ll talk about the best of them.

Sadie by Courtney Summers
If you haven’t heard about this book, specifically the audiobook, you must live in a closet. This full-cast audiobook follows two storylines and I just could not stop listening. The story is just brought to life in this format.

Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
I loved this book, no matter the format. The story was fascinating and full of mystery and adventure. The audiobook really brought the characters out.

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
Kate Rudd is an incredible narrator. I loved this book physically, but even more so on audio. This is a must-read for the fall season.

Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus
With multiple narrators, this was another one that I just didn’t want to stop listening to until I got to the end. One of Us is Lying was also good on audio, but this one was better.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Though the narrator took a bit of getting used to, I really enjoyed the audiobooks for this one. It’s such an atmospheric story, and audio really enhanced that.

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
A throwback for some YA paranormal, the audiobook was fun and slightly cheesy, there were sound effects and songs and I just had fun with it.

Shelter in Place by Nora Roberts
This mystery was a wild one. I cried in the first chapter and was trapped on the edge of my seat for the rest.

Let me your audiobook recommendations in the comments! I’m always looking for the next one to listen to. Have you read any of these?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

  1. I’m not big into audio books but I have more respect for them after listening to a panel with audio book narrator Dion Graham at the Southern Festival of Books. I think it’s cool how narrators try to harness the author when narrating.
    Nice post!

  2. OMG I loved how the audiobook of Beautiful Creatures had the song in it. I don’t know how I would have imagined it in my head if I didn’t listen to the audiobook but I loved it there.

    Sadie was also one of my favorite audiobooks too! I haven’t listened to the rest but I definitely bet those are worth the listen one of these days.

  3. I listened to most of these on audio as well, they are so good!
    One of my faves are The last magician and Crown of feathers!
