HELP WANTED: Audiobooks

Hello readers! I’m going to be taking a long road trip fairly soon and I get carsick if I try to read in the car (this is something that has caused me much sadness throughout my life). So I’ve decided to give audiobooks a try instead. I can’t remember the last time I listened to a book on tape, so I need YOUR help picking out what audiobook(s) to bring with me.

If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time you can probably tell that I read a lot of YA–mostly romancey or fantasy stuff–but I am open to reading other books. What are some audiobook titles that a first timer like me should pick up? Note: I leave next week so think about titles that won’t have holds at the library.

  1. Some of my favorite audiobooks are the Protector of the Small quartet by Tamora Pierce (I’ve listened to them so many times, it’s not funny). They are narrated by Bernadette Dunn, and I love her narration. I also really enjoy the Fablehaven books by Brandon Mull and narrated by E.B. Stevens. I’m very picky with my audiobooks (which is is weird, so I don’t have too many favorites), but my favorite narrator is Barbara Rosenblat. She narrates these Mrs. Pollifax books by Dorothy Gilman, and I love them. I hope this helps! 😀

  2. I love audiobooks, but I am also very picky about them. Basically with audiobooks the narrator can really ruin the experience for you. I would recommend audible or itunes. Even if you would rather rent than buy you should go on to those sites and listen to the preview so you can see if you like the reader, if you do then head down to your library and rent it.

    I haven’t listened to much in the genres you mentioned but I can say – even if it is a re-read for you- the Harry Potter audiobooks are the best I have ever heard. Jim Dale is hands down the best voice artist ever. I also really enjoyed the narrators for Gillian Flynn’s books if you were interested in reading Gone Girl, Dark Places or Sharp Objects. I prefer listening to thrillers or mysteries personally.

  3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, Stardust by Neil Gaiman, Inkheart by Cornelia Funke, Cruel Beauty by Rosalind Hodge. I’m into audio books lately going to buy myself one more in June =]
