I've become a HUGE fan of audio books in 2012 and thought why not challenge some of my other blogger/reader friends to find the joy in listening to audios. They are great for those times you want to read but can't for some reason like driving to and from work, doing house chores, working out in the gym, etc.
I know some of you are thinking, audio books? Pass. I thought that once too. But when you find a great narrator they can make the story even better. There are some series I will only listen to because I love the narration so much.
Favorite series on audio:
Downside Ghosts by Staica Kane, narrated by Bahni Turpin
Dreg City by Kelly Meding, narrated by Xe Sands
Elemental Assassin by Jennifer Estep, narrated by Lauren Fortgang
Jane Jameson by Molly Harper, narrated by Amanda Ronconi
Charley Davidson by Darynda Jones, narrated by Lorelei King
Kate Daniels by Ilonda Andrews, narrated by Renee Raudman
And what better co-host to have for an audio book challenge than Lupe from Hot Listens. She's the queen of audio books.
Reading Challenge Details:
- Runs January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013. You can join at anytime.
