Pride & Prejudice
by Rosamund Pike
Rosamund played Jane in the on screen adaptation and also took P&P to a new level with her narration. I had not had the pleasure to hear it read before–so this was a treat. For someone that doesn’t have the patience to read P&P I highly recommend.
K. C. Sheridan
On a lighter romance scale, Roomies by the powerhouse team Christina Lauren was entertaining and fun, with the Irish lilt of Sheridan a pleasant surprise. It was sexy, but sentimental…great listen.
Getting dark with Nora Roberts wasn’t a statement I ever thought I would say…but this was the last audiobook I listened to and was hooked. My favorite narrator is by far Whelan – and Roberts channelling King’s The Stand with her latest release was a surprise…
Narrated by: Fiona Hardingham
Hardingham made this book for me, it wasn’t the best book out there, but Hardingham’s rich tones and nuanced narration made this one of my favorites, I had to restart this one three times…but kept going back because I knew it was worth it. I think if there was another narrator I wouldn’t have gone back.
A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN
Narrated by: Amanda Leigh Cobb
ACOWR is going to make all the lists because by far it’s THE BEST EVER. I switched to audiobook after reading the other books in the series – and I did wish I would have read it instead of listened to it first, but it was a competent narration. I’m thinking about restarting her TOG series in audiobook because I can’t get anough of MAAS.
Grafton’s voice perfectly accentuated the character of Bianca Piper in DUFF. It was a good book, and a great listen. If you are looking for a lighter YA this is my pick for you.
narrated by a full cast production
Interesting concept and with the full cast production this was almost like listening to a movie.
The Dead Zone
Narrated by: James Franco
I’m usually not all excited about celeb narrations but Franco took this book to the next level. I didn’t even recognize he was reading it after the first chapter. Again it brought new life to an old favorite.
