2013 YA Audiobook challenge-Sign Up
Did you know that about a quarter of the books I "read" during the year are audiobooks? I always have an audiobook on the go. I find that they make certain mundane tasks, such as cleaning, and exercising much more pleasant. But I have never reviewed any of the audiobooks I have listened to. Which is to bad, because I have heard some great ones, experienced some fantastic narrators. Therefore I am going to participate in the 2013 Young Adult Audiobook challenge hosted by Jen at A Book and A Latte. You can find out more about the challenge and how to signup here.
From the challenge page:
For this challenge I am going to take it easy and go with the ``Easy Listening Listen`category. I am sure I will listen to more then twelve audiobooks but, will I review more? We'll see.
For your listening pleasure, below are a few of my favourite narrators:
- Khristine Hvam: Daughter of Smoke and Bone- She did a fantastic job with Smoke and Bone and I really would love to see how she does with Days of Blood and Starlight
-Dan Bittner: Linger and Shiver- Love his voice. He narrated Cole in The Wolves of Mercy Falls series. It was brilliant. He also narrated Gayle Forman's Where She Went.
-MacLeod Andrews: Will Grayson, Will Grayson- One of the best audiobooks I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. The two narrators were fantastic and I am eager to see what other YA novels I can dig into that they've narrated.
-Nick Podehl: Will Grayson, Will Grayson- The other half of the Will Grayson duo. I know Nick has narrated The Chaos Walking trilogy and I have been wanting to read that novel for a while, so maybe I'll listen to it instead.
-Laura Flanagan: Identical & Crank- Laura narrates the majority of Ellen Hopkins' novels and she does a great job. She does uncaring, twisted teenager brilliantly. She also narrates The Running Dream which is what I would like to listen to this year.
So there you have it. My challenge sign up.
~Happy Reading Everyone!
