Audiobook Challenge Mid-year Check-in
I have listened to 9 audiobooks this year – which is surprisingly few IMO. I thought I had listened to a lot more than that to be honest. I have enjoyed all the books I’ve listened to, and I really want to listen to many, many more. However, I kind of need to do something else at the same time as I’m listening, or I feel a little too idle.
I mostly listen when I drive to work, and sometimes on the bus or other public transport. Now that summer is here, I won’t really have to go anywhere for the next several weeks, so I need to find myself a new listening routine.
Audiobook Challenge Books listened to:
I really enjoyed this one, it’s hot and funny, and Sarina Bowen always makes me feel something. The narrators are Stephen Dexter and Teddy Hamilton. If you want to read my short review, click on the image.
I love this series so much, Dannika Dark is so good at writing UF, and there’s always something about her protagonists that compel me. Very much. This novel is narrated by Nicole Poole, whom I love as a narrator!
You Had Me at Hola was so much fun to read! In between the set of a new series, and a very nosy family, plus a hero who was more or less done with dating, there was a lot going on, and I was definitely there for it! Narrated by Seraphine Valentine, and she did a great job.
Gray Hair Don’t Care spoke to me on so many levels! Because I’ve let my hair be natural for the past few years, and it definitely isn’t blonde anymore 😉 I enjoyed the characters, the bantering, and the strong female protagonist. The narrator is Romy Nordlinger.
Come As You Are is narrated by Sebastian York and Andi Arnt, and I could listen to the both of them all day long every day… I enjoyed the story as well, thank goodness, but the narrators *sigh* they are so, so good!
Wild Child is a mix of romantic suspense and romcom – and it only partly worked for me. I felt like there was a lot going on, and not all of it had to make it into the story for things to make sense. The narrator for this one is Samantha Summers. Sadly, I wasn’t a fan of the narration, it was choppy, and sometimes rather robotic.
Gaslight is the fourth book in the series, and I had read this one rather than listening to it, so I felt the need to get some Nicole Poole goodness into my car and went back to it after I finished Blackout.
The last audiobook I listened to before the middle of the year was Nevermore, the 6th book in the Crossbreed series – as usual narrated by Nicole Poole. I enjoyed this one a little bit less, as it was more of a filler novel. However, I’m listening to the next one right now, and I’m loving it!
