Audiobook Discussions: Your Best Listening Experience

IMG_20161207_184007_065000 (1)

I have been doing a lot of audiobook listening lately and I attended a recent blogger webinar about audiobook reviewing which got me thinking more and more about audiobooks.  So I wanted to know more of what you think about them!  From there, Audiobook Discussions has been born!

I want to hear about your best audiobook listening experience!

This one is a little difficult for me because I have had a few really good listening experiences lately, but very few have had a combination of 5 stars for both the book and the narration.  I am going to have to select The Secret Life of Anna Blanc by Jennifer Kincheloe.  The narrator was able to carry off the style of the writing/way the main character thought which made me feel like I WAS that heroine.  The production in terms of pacing, background sound etc, was spot on and I was thrilled with the narrator.  My full review can be found here

Please share with me your favorite listening experience because I would LOVE to pick up a new book, regardless of the genre!

  1. I have such a hard time listening to audiobooks.

    1. I'm hit and miss, it can really depend. If I'm actively doing something else like cleaning or some paperwork I'm good with them, but if I get distracted and start browsing the web or whatnot I will lose the thread entirely.

  2. Behold the Dreamers
    A Novel
    by Imbolo Mbue
    Prentice Onayem

    This was a great audio, very entertaining and thought-provoking, fantastic narration. Two weeks after finishing this I'm still thinking about it!

    1. Thanks for the recommendation - never heard of this one. That's how you know it is a good read, when it sticks with you long after.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
