My Audiobook Year: Audiobook Week 2013

audiobookweekbutton zpsdb6e126c picture

This week is Audiobook Week from June 17 to 21, hosted by Devourer of Books. Today's discussion is based on these questions:

Are you new to audiobooks in the last year? Have you been listening to them forever but discovered something new this year? Favorite titles? New times/places to listen? This is your chance to introduce yourself and your general listening experience.

I have been listening to and reviewing audiobooks for exactly one year. I started last year after reading the discussion topics on Book Journey and Devourer of Books during audiobook week. While I will always love reading print books, I am also reading more ebooks and listening to more audiobooks.

I average one audiobook a month, I think that will increase since lately I discovered I enjoy listening not only during my commute to work but also while housecleaning, cooking, and doing laundry. It makes doing these perfunctory tasks much more enjoyable.

I have been impressed with the quality of the narrators of the audiobooks I've listened to. Their voices can really transport me to the world in the book and help me visualize the characters well. Once you start listening to some good audiobooks, you'll get hooked! That's what happened to me. Here are some of my favorites in the past year:

 Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale 
Narrated by Chelsea Mixon and Cast

 The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott
Narrated by Susan Duerden

Ashes of Twilight by Kassy Tayler
Narrated by Nicola Barber

Hold on to Your Kids by Godon Neufeld and Gabor Maté
Narrated by Daniel Maté

All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin 
Narrated by Ilyana Kadushin

I will be posting my review of audiobook The Fever Tree by Jennifer McVeigh later today and also Torn From Troy: Odyssey of a Slave (Book 1) by Patrick Bowman on Thursday.
