Wednesday: Mid-week Audiobook Week Meme
This will not be up until the morning of Wednesday, June 27th, but it will be short and fast, so check in and join the fun.
Current/most recent audiobook:
What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty, read by Tamara Lovatt-Smith
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, read by Jennifer Ikeda
Yes, I am listening to two audiobooks.
What Alice Forgot: The story is sort of getting on my nerves, but Lovatt-Smith is pulling me through. She has a lovely voice, even if she doesn’t change it for characters.
A Discovery of Witches: I’m rereading this to get read for Shadow of Night (WHICH CAME IN AUDIO IN THE MAIL YESTERDAY! WOOT! Sorry.) and I actually think I’m enjoying it more than when I read it. I love the way Jennifer Ikeda reads and her characterization.
Current/most recent favorite audiobook:
It’s hard to pick; I’ve loved all the audiobooks I’ve finished this year. My favorite for the year remains Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.
Favorite narrator you’ve discovered recently:
Wil Wheaton! I’ve listened to two books this year that he’s read (Ready Player One and Peter & Max by Bill Willingham) and I just loved his reading.
One title from your TBL (to be listened) stack, or your audio wishlist:
Oh my gosh, there are so many! And Audible has a $5 sale going on! Eek! Okay, first one that comes to mind is The Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon. I’ve been wanting to reread it for forever but the only audio available was abridged. An unabridged version has finally come available. It’s read by a new-to-me reader; David Colacci. I hope it’s good! I LOVED that book.
Your audio dream team (what book or author would you LOVE to see paired with a certain narrator, can already exist or not):
Oh my gosh, I can’t even think. I’ll listen to anything read by Neil Gaiman, Wil Wheaton, Jennifer Ikeda, Nick Podehl, MacLeod Andrews, Angela Dawe, and on and on and on.
