Top Ten Tuesday #48: Top Ten Audiobooks & Their Narrators

Happy Tuesday, and happy Top Ten Tuesday day, everyone! This week’s theme is a freebie! While I normally think of ideas while completing other TTT prompts, I had a really hard time coming up with a prompt that really inspired me this week. In the end, I decided to make a list of my Top 10 Audiobooks and their narrators! I’ve had a number of people approach me because they want to start listening to audiobooks, but don’t know which book or books to begin with. So, I am hoping that this list will be helpful to those wanting to start listening, and also for those who already listen to audiobooks but are looking for a new one to listen to. Continue reading if you want to see which ten books I selected this week!

For those of you who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is all about, here is a quote
from The Artsy Reader Girl, the host of this weekly meme!

I assign each Tuesday a topic and then post my top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.

You’ll find the schedule of upcoming TTT topics below so you can plan ahead. I’ll post a Linky here on the blog each week so you can link up your post (if you want). If you don’t have a blog, post your picks in the comment section below! Have tons of fun talking books and getting to know your fellow bloggers!

… and now that all of the necessary stuff is out of the way …

  1. Great topic! Narrators are frequently overlooked. I listened to I Let You Go by Nicola Barber and she did a spectacular job with that one.

    1. Thank you! And I agree. Narrators really need some recognition too (especially the talented ones, hehe). And oh thank you! I’ll have to check that one out 🙂

    1. I do hope that it’ll be helpful to you if you do decide to get into audiobooks in the future! Thanks so much for reading, and Happy Tuesday to you as well 😀

  2. This is an awesome topic! I honestly have tried with audiobooks and have never really found one that has grabbed my attention! I’m really curious about Stalking Jack the Ripper though .. I really want to read that one, maybe trying out this audiobook will be good?

    1. It’s actually quite common! I for one HATED audiobooks until early last year haha. I was doing some work that was super repetitive, and my brain needed something else to work on…so I started putting on audiobooks…and now here I am 😛

  3. I agree about October Daye’s audiobooks, they’re great! I also like Renee Raudman’s narration of Kate Daniels, Davina Porter’s reading of The Mists of Avalon, and David Tennant did a terrific job with How to Train Your Dragon. Oh!!! and Stephen Briggs with Good Omens, that one’s a jewel.

  4. Yes!!

    I am one of thoses people who haven’t tried audiobooks yet.. So thank you for thoses recs, i’ll keep it in my bookmarks and I will start from there

  5. After my audiobook discussion I feel like I need to hunt down everyone’s favorite audiobook and give it a go! I saw in you Astonishing Color of After review how highly you thought the audiobook was… I think that may be a go for me!! ❤️

    1. Thank you! And thanks for reading 🙂 I’m trying to get more into podcasts but have been failing so far. I guess I just feel that I could be spending that time listening to an audiobook instead? Hahaha
