I live on audiobooks these days. My commute to work is so long (an hour on a good day) that I don’t know what I would do without an audiobook to listen to on my drive. I usually love the ones with full casts, because they just bring such a dimension to the book that a single narrator cannot always accomplish (although really good narrators can draw you into the stories with their varied voices).
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme that the lovely Bionic Bookworm does. If you are interested in doing any of her topics on your blog she welcomes it! Don’t forget to check out her upcoming topics if you’re interested in participating in future Top 5’s! Be sure to check out her topics here!
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Narrator: Jim Dale
There is no narrator like Jim Dale, he’s just a classic.
The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Hands down my favourite audiobooks, because they have such a brilliant cast, sound effects, and everything put together just draws you right into the story.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
Narrator: Fiona Hardingham
I love Fiona Hardingham as a narrator (she also performs Furyborn and Kingsbane, My Plain Jane, Sherwood, and about 200 others but I haven’t personally listened to them).
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Other than the fact that each narrator pronounced Jurda differently and that was distracting, I love that this audiobook has a full cast.
Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
Narrator: Emily Ellet
She has such a nice voice for this book and the characters, the only thing I will say is that she speaks really slowly so I had to increase the speed a little to enjoy it.
