Audiobook Week Discussion – What are you listening to?

Audiobook Week hosted by Devourer of Books continues with a mid-week meme to talk about what we’re listening to now and what’s coming up next.

Current/Most Recent Audiobook:

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay, read by Candace Thaxton and Kirby Heyborne

Impressions:

I’ve already read (and loved) the book but wanted to experience it in audio. There is dual narration to go with the his-and-her storytelling. The narrators are doing a fine job and I’m immersed in the story. Since I’ve already read the book I had my own expectation of how the readers should sound, and the narrators don’t exactly line up, but they are helping me to process the story in a new way. I’m about halfway into the book now.

Current/Most Recent Favorite Audiobook:

Looking over this year’s audiobooks, If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch, read by Tai Sammons, stands out as a favorite.

Favorite Narrator You’ve Discovered Recently:

I liked Lauren Fortgang’s narration on Out of The Easy, and I’m thinking of picking up the Shadow and Bone series that she also reads. I also like Madeleine Maby/Grace Grant’s narration in the Romance category.

One title from your TBL (To be Listened) stack, or your audio wish list:

I’m looking forward to listening to Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead read by Emily Shaffer. Mead is one of my favorite authors, and I’m interested in checking out her new series.

    I read The Sea of Tranquility recently and enjoyed it, but I haven’t listening to the audio. I’d be interested to hear the voices for the two main characters.

  2. I have Gameboard of Gods too. I am hoping I have more luck with the audio than I did with the print version.

  3. I love dual narrator productions! Need to investigate The Sea of Tranquility.

    Gameboard of the Gods is on my wishlist too! I haven’t read any Richelle Mead yet but have several of her books on my wishlist.

    I really like Kirby Heyborne. I’m listening to Dear Girls Above Me and he narrates it too.

  7. I’ll have to keep my eye out for narrator Lauren Fortgang.

  8. Sunny says:

    I just finished Mockingjay and now am probably going to start on Raven Boys!

  9. I’ve had Daughter of Shadow and Bone for quite awhile now. I’m hoping to actually get to it soon. Glad I have a good narrator to look forward to.

    I must try an audiobook soon! I feel like I’m missing out…Every time you do a post on audiobooks, it gets me excited to finally take the plunge:)

    i don’t think i know any of these narrators but i definitely want to give them a try. i am currently listening to but stalled on the legend of zelda fitzgerald (i think that’s the title). I really like the narrator but the characters aren’t my favorite so i have turned it off for a little while. it’s been hard for me to get into audiobooks lately. maybe i just need to find the right one.

  12. I’m really interested in what you think about Mead’s new series. It’s getting some rough reviews & a DNF. Love her. Hope I love it.
