Top 10 Tuesday — Outstanding Audiobooks

26 Mar

I listen to audiobooks while I walk in the mornings. I find it helps engage my mind while I automatically traverse the very familiar roads in my neighborhood. Because I pack my reading schedule with review books, I rarely read a book just because. Audiobooks help fulfill that need. My list today, Outstanding Audiobooks, consists of the most recent books I have listened to and loved. A variety of genres are represented, so there should be something on the list for just about everyone. They were excellent choices, both for content and the reader’s excellent portrayal of the characters. I don’t hesitate to recommend them to other audiobook fans.

    I started listening to audiobooks when our move to a new state necessitated a longer commute time. I just hated sitting in the car for so long, and audiobooks made the drive go much faster. Now I also listen to them while dressing, fixing my hair, dusting – and when exercising, though I’ve fallen off the wagon there and need to get back. 🙂 I listen to a lot of classics that way – I find I don’t mind some of the more descriptive and meandering writing as much while I am doing something with my hands, and the accents add a lot to the experience. I loved The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society via audiobook. I *loved* Jan Kaon’s Mitford series narrated by John McDonough. Some of the other non-classic books I’ve enjoyed as audiobooks were Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand, City of Tranquil Light by Bo Caldwell, The Silver Suitcase by Terrie Todd, and several by Melanie Dickerson.

      I need to move some classics to my audio library. A great way to “read” those books I have missed.

    How easy was it for you to come up with your list this week? How often do you listen to audiobooks in general?

      Pretty easy. I listen to audiobooks 3-4 times a week. More often if I exercise everyday.

    Colour me intrigued! I’m definitely on the lookout for good audiobooks to try and get me into them, so this weeks topic is one I’m keen on seeing what others share. Great picks! Naturally, I wrote down a couple of them for future reference.

    Oooo, great list!! I am an avid audiobook listener and almost enjoy listening to audiobooks more than reading books.

    Here’s a link to my TTT post:

    So delighted to see A Refuge Assured on your list! And I agree about The Guernsey book–that is probably my favorite audiobook of all time (so far) because of all the differrent narrators. I’ve read several of your other picks, but there a few I could still listen to. Thanks!

      You are welcome! Guernsey was truly unique. I wondered how the audiobook would be with the format and the many voices. They did an excellent job. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. 🙂

    I have not listened to any of these, but read a couple. I have gotten hooked on audiobooks in the last year, so will check some of these ones out.

      I’ve gotten my husband hooked on audiobooks too. It is a great stress reliever for him. He can get moving and enjoy a book.
