The past few years on my former blog, Bookworm Brandee, I enjoyed doing a “look back at the year” so I asked Lexxie if we could continue the tradition here and to join me in listing favorites. We hope you enjoy reading about some of our favorites and we’d be happy to hear about any of yours!
This post is all about narrators! Honestly, I’m pretty picky when it comes to narrators. Here are my favorites for this year:
- Neva Navarre ~ A new-to-me narrator, she narrated Over Duet by JA DeRouen and did a fantastic job of embodying the characters and conveying all the emotions!
- Kirsten Potter ~ KPotter is a favorite of all-time narrator for me and I listened to her narrate from a new-to-me series this year…Darkness Dawns, book #1 in the Immortal Guardians by Dianne Duvall. KPotter ROCKS everything when it comes to narration!
- Nicole Poole ~ Another of my favorite narrators, NPoole impressed once again as she took me back to the world of the Mageri in The Gift by Dannika Dark.
- Robert Petkoff ~Yet another of my favorite narrators, RPetkoff sets the bar HIGH with his narration of Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series, which I continued this year with Dark Desires After Dusk.
- Andi Arndt ~ Again, I’m listing another of my favorite of all-time narrators. Honestly, if I see Andi Arndt’s name, I grab it because I know it’s going to be worth the listen!
- Zachary Webber ~ I believe ZWebber was new-to-me this year but he absolutely captivated me in Show Me the Way by AL Jackson.
- Gary Furlong ~ Another new-to-me narrator, GFurlong made a fan of me with his narration of The Lawrence Browne Affair by Cat Sebastian.
Here are Lexxie’s favorite narrators for 2018:
- I absolutely loved Luke Daniels narration for the whole Iron Druid series. He has a great way of changing both his voice and his accent, and he made me live the adventures alongside the characters! I’m going to do an audible search for him and possibly find new authors that way 🙂
- Renée Raudman narrated Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews, and I really enjoyed her. She was a new discovery for me in 2018.
- Johnathan McClain and all the other narrators for The Illuminae Files – it felt like I was at the movies, that’s how vivid the narration made this whole series for me.
- Nicole Poole who narrates the Crossbreed series by Dannika Dark also works very well in my opinion. She is good with both male and female voices, plus she as a good array of accents at her disposal.
Do you have a favorite narrator? Have you ever bought a book because you knew the narrator but not the author?
