I've been saving up some audiobooks to review for Audiobook Week, hosted by one of my favorite bloggers, Jen at Devourer of Books. Check it out and win some prizes if you participate!
First question to start us off:
Are you new to audiobooks in the last year? Have you been listening to them forever but discovered something new this year? Favorite titles? New times/places to listen? This is your chance to introduce yourself and your general listening experience.
I've loved audiobooks since my sophomore year in college, when I would drive an hour + each way to classes each day. I started with The Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson, but I quickly grew out of those.
Now, I always have an audiobook going and though I don't spend nearly as much time in the car as I did up until my son was born, I still get through them fairly quickly. I still listen while I drive, as well as while I walk with the baby, and while I clean.
In my long list of listens, I did get the chance to end up with a few favorites in the past 12 months including:
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor read by Khristine Hvam
The Help by Katherine Stockett read by Jenna Lamia, Bahni Turpin, and Octavia Spencer
The Penderwicks at Point Mouette by Jeanne Birdsall read by Susan Denaker
I'm in the middle of A Discovery of Witches right now and very much enjoying that one too!
