About the meme:
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, but is now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl! The read more about this meme, look at this page!
This week’s meme is audiobook freebie, which I’m really happy about! I absolutely love audiobooks, and always have one on the go! I think by now you’ve notice that I consume quite a lot of books each months, and this is partly because of audiobooks. I listen to 5-8 audiobooks each month, depending on the length of these books of course. I literary listen all the time, when I travel to and from school, during groceries, in the gym, while cooking etc. So I’m taking this opportunity to talk about my favourite audiobooks!:
- Sadie – Courtney Summers. I think this audiobook will be on many peoples list. But it is just so well done! This book contains podcasts, and because you’re listening to it, it makes it feel way more real!
- The dark artifices – Cassandra Clare. I recently finished this series on audio, and it was amazing! The narrator (especially of the last two) fitted the story so well and I just could not put them down!
- The thousandth floor – Katherine McGee. I don’t think I would have loved this story so much if I didn’t listen to it! It almost felt like watching a TV series (like gossip girl).
- Wayward children – Seanan McGuire. The first three books I read both physical and listened to, and I’m not sure which one I prefer. Both are really good. But for the books where they go to these worlds, I definitely really liked the audio, it made it easier to imagine the world!
- The last magician – Lisa Maxwell. If you didn’t know yet this is one of my new favourite books! I loved the audiobook so much, it was so easy to imagine the world, and the voice fitted so well!
- Nyxia – Scott Reintgen. I don’t even know why, but I just really liked listening to this. I read the first couple of pages, switched to the audiobook, wanted to switch back to physically reading, but decided not to since I really liked listening to it!
- Talon – Julie Kagawa. This is a full cast audiobook, which is great. This book is told from 4 (?) different perspectives, and because the voices are quite different they are really easy to distinguish. Also these books are amazing!
- The name of the wind – Patrick Rothfuss. This book is written as if it is being told, so listening to it is like having your grandfather telling a story (I imagine, I don’t remember my grandfather telling me stories..). Again the voice fits the story so well!
- Escaping from Houdini – Kerri Maniscalco. I only recommend this one, since I didn’t listen to the first to, but I can imagine them being just as great! I read book one on my ereader, book two on my laptop, and definitely preferred how I read book 3! It just made the world come to life way more then the first two! (Maybe an unpopular opinion, but I think this might be my favourite in the series..!)
- Two can keep a secret – Karen McManus. I listened to this book in one sitting! It was so addicting, I think I should listen to more ‘mysteries’ on audio, it is a really interesting way to consume this story! Again the narrator fitted so well!
- Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo – Taylor Jenkins Reid. Had to include this one, even though it’s number eleven. This is not the type of book I normally read, and I’m not even sure if I would have finished, if not for the audio! This book is again written as if it’s being told, so it really feels like you’re sitting down and someone is telling you this story. And it was so good!
Come talk to me!
Do you listen to audiobooks? Which one is your favourite?

I might have to read Talon on audio! I’ve read the first three books but want to reread them all before getting to the final two books and I love audio with full casts!
Yess you should, I listened the first four directly after each other because I couldn’t stop! (Unfortunately has to wait for the fifth book..)
I’ve been wanting to reread but haven’t been able to get into them whenever I pick them up, so maybe audio wil help$
I hope they will 🙂
I’ve never heard of Sadie, but you’re right, I’m seeing it on a lot of lists today. No idea that it contained podcasts, that is so neat!
Haha it released last year and got a lot of attention for a little while:)
I usually listen to audiobooks when I’m traveling alone – makes the time go by faster and decreases my road rage, lol. I’ve only listened to a few, but even with those, I discovered the narrator can make or break the book for me.
Hahah I can see that haha! I always listen in the gym, also helps!
Yes narrators voice is really important!
