Stacey sent us her favorite audiobooks, and she’s obviously an AVID fan of books in this format. In fact, I think I’d go so far as to say she’s our “resident” audiobook “reader”. She sent me a whole spread sheet with her ratings and mini-notes letting us know what each one is “about”.
THESE are the ones that are her absolute favorite of the bunch, and going through her notes was quite fun!!!
I have been a MBB voyeur dating back to the “what to read after Twilight” days (thank you for Sookie and BDB!) Just thought I’d offer some input from my self-proclaimed-area-of-expertise: Audiobooks. I have listened to over 500 books, many based on recommendations from your website. The following titles were SO FREAKING GOOD as audiobooks – worth listening to even if you’ve already read the Kindle/book edition!I am attaching some details – which may be helpful. I have both read and listened to the majority of them (many are offered at a reduced price if you own the Kindle version). The titles on my recommended lists are enhanced with narration, and SO worth listening to – even if you’ve already read the book!Hope my notes are useful…
- You /Hidden Bodies (Kepnes, Caroline) <— 5, OMG (AMAZ Narr!) (♥Narr=S.Fontan) Sociopath/serial killer/NewYorker/finds true love (and she personally told me:
“Even though you’ve already read it old-school, Hidden Bodies is an Audible MUST LISTEN!! Narrator, Santino Fontana, nails Joe-the-sociopath, giving him depth and humor as he moves to LA in search of true love and some honesty. Seriously, give it a listen – you will not be sorry!!”
