This week is Audiobook Week from June 17 to 21, hosted by Devourer of Books. Today's discussion is based on the following topics:
Current/most recent audiobook:
The Husband List by Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly, narrated by Lorelei King
I have just listened to one hour thus far but I am thoroughly enjoying it. It has all the elements I enjoy: historical fiction set in late 1800s New York, an intelligent heroine and witty repartee. I have heard of narrator Lorelei King, but this is the first time I listen to her work. She has impressed me so far!
Current/most recent favorite audiobook:
My favorite recent audiobook is The Fever Tree by Jennifer McVeigh, narrated by Jayne Paterson. This book transported me to colonial Africa in the late 1800s with lush descriptions. The narrator did a great job. As I listened I quickly realized that my favorite narrators are those with British accents. I love how they can do the different variations of the English language from upper class to Irish and Cockney.
Favorite narrator you’ve discovered recently:
Brandon Espinoza who narrated the male characters in The 5th Wave. I loved his voice! He captured all the nuances of a teenager, was able to do the hard sergeant's voice, and that of a little boy too. I can still hear his voice in my head. I would definitely be influenced to listen to an audiobook he narrates.
One title from your TBL (to be listened) stack, or your audio wishlist:
I recently got a copy of Looking for Me by Beth Hoffman, narrated by Jenna Lamia. I've heard so many good things about the print book and the audio that I know I'm in for a treat!
