It is time for the Best of 2013 Audiobook Blog Hop where we highlight our favorite 3 audiobooks from 2013. This hop is hosted by The Book Nympho, Hot Listens, and Geeky Bloggers Book Blog.
It runs from Jan 1 2014 to Jan 15 2014.
I only listened to 23 audio books in 2013 (not too bad I think but not a lot reading the other participants blogs.)
I have already started the challenge for 2014 - let's see if I can beat my total!
My top 3 for the year starts with an oldie but a goodie . . .
Killing Floor (Jack Reacher #1) by Lee Child
Narrator: Dick Hill
Length: 14 hrs and 47 mins
I love Dick Hill - he was awesome as Jack Reacher! I would recommend him highly.
The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoron Strike #1)
by Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling)
Narrator: Robert Glenister
Length: 15 hrs and 53 min
This one was a surprise but I loved it - am keeping an eye out for the sequel.
Kinsey Millhone ABC series by Sue Grafton
Narrator: Mary Pfeiffer
Length: Usually around 8 hours
I am making my way through this series and I find that Mary Pfeiffer has a soothing, comforting narration style.
There are two giveaways today (yay!).
The first is my personal giveaway.
I met JJ DiBenedetto in one of my Goodreads bookclubs. James has written the Young Adult/New Adult Paranormal Dreams series. I have started the second audiobook in the series - watch out for my review coming in 2014. Will Sara's dreams of becoming a doctor be shattered?
James has been so generous to offer the audiobook of the first in the series, Dream Student to one lucky winner. Just watch this video, I know you will be hooked.
Here is what the Goodreads blurb says: What would you do if you could see other people’s dreams? If you could watch their hidden fantasies and uncover their deepest, darkest secrets…without them ever knowing?
Sara Barnes is about to find out. She thought that all she had to worry about was final exams, Christmas shopping and deciding whether she likes the cute freshman in the next dorm who’s got a crush on her.
But when she starts seeing dreams that aren’t hers, she learns more than she ever wanted to know about her friends, her classmates…and a strange, terrifying man whose dreams could get Sara killed.
“Dream Student” is the thrilling first installment of the Dreams series.
