Audiobooks can be a hit or miss for me. It all depends on the narrator really. Sometimes I think listening to a book can make me like it less which is why I typically don’t listen to books. But the following books were fun to listen to and I think my experience with the story was actually enhanced because of the audiobook.
Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella / Read by Gemma Whelan – I LOVED the narrator of this one. She added so much personality to Audrey. I am not sure if I would have enjoyed this book as much if I’d just read the physical book.
Wildflower by Drew Barrymore / Read by Author – If you plan on reading this then you should definitely give it a listen. I can almost guarantee that reading the physical book will not be as fun as listening to it.
The Amazing Book is Not on Fire by Dan Howell & Phil Lester / Read by Authors – This was such a fun listening experience. I love watching Dan and Phil on Youtube and this book was just as funny and interesting as their channels. I would recommend reading the physical book and listening to it just because there are a lot of pictures and stuff.
These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly / Read by Kim Bubbs – I read the physical book and listened to the audiobook and it was great. I didn’t ever feel annoyed or bored by the narrator and when I listened I fully paid attention to the story which doesn’t always happen when I am listening to a book. My mind tends to wander.
Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah / Read by Author – This was SO GOOD! Trevor Noah is hilarious. I especially loved any story involving his mom. She sounds like an incredible person. I laughed. I cried. I felt inspired. Would highly recommend this one.
It by Stephen King / Read by Steven Weber – I think my experience with this book was definitely enhanced by the narrator. Each character had a distinct voice and I loved being able to hear Ritchie’s voices and Bill’s stutter.
