My husband and I decided to try out Audible last year and now we’re both hooked. He listens to more than I do, but we do try to listen to at least one book together per month. We mostly listen in the car, but we’ll sometimes listen at home if we’re getting close to the end of a book.
I thought I would share some of the ones we’ve loved. I read most of these books before listening, but it was the first time for him.
We listened to all three books in the Illuminae Files. These are my absolute favorite audiobooks and I recommend them to everyone (though it kind of ruins all other books after). There is a full cast and sound effects.
I believe Warcross was the first one we listened to. I enjoyed the narrator and will probably get Wildcard once it’s out (definitely the physical book).
This is one of my favorite narrators so far. This book was just as good the second time around.
Long Way Down is quick. We were able to listen to the whole book in one trip. This is one of the few that I didn’t read first and that didn’t bother me. It was really good. Jason Reynolds was the narrator, so it was perfect.
We listened to both Stalking Jack The Ripper and Hunting Prince Dracula. I liked the girl who narrated. She did well with the different voices.
We listened to both This Savage Song and Our Dark Duet. I enjoyed revisiting this story with my husband.
A Colony In A Nation was read by Chris Hayes. I love his show/reporting and this was such a great book. I think we listened to this right after finishing The Hate U Give or Long Way Down. It was the perfect book right after those.
I’m not sure why this picture is so small (it’s from goodreads). This is the most recent book we’ve finished. I adore Katy Tur and she reads her story. That just made it even better. She was so good and I loved the book.
Do you listen to audiobooks? What are some of your favorites? We’re listening to Scream All Night right now and I’m loving the narrator already.
