Audiobook Week 2013: Mid-Week Meme


Welcome to day three of Audio Book Week, hosted by Jen at Devourer of Books! Today is the mid-week meme. 

Current/most recent audiobook:
I'm currently listening to 2 audio books:
  * in the car: Fly Away by Kristin Hannah, read by Susan Ericksen
  * on the iPod: Come Home by Lisa Scottoline, read by Maggie-Meg Reed

Impressions:
Fly Away: I loved Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah and this is the sequel to that and it's really good!
 
Come Home: This is the first Lisa Scottoline book I've read/listened to and I am really enjoying it - there's just the right amount of suspense to keep you hooked and Maggie-Meg Reed is really able to nail all the different voices.

Current/most recent favorite audiobook:
Looking over the audiobooks I've listened to this past year, I'd have to say Kristin Hannah's Winter Garden is my favorite...Susan Ericksen did a phenomenal job narrating that story, especially when the Russian accent is called for - this is why you should listen to this book!!!

 
 
 
 
 
Favorite narrator you’ve discovered recently:
Stina Nielsen - she was part of the cast that narrated Alison Weir's Innocent Traitor - she was Lady Jane Grey. I enjoyed listening to her and would love to see what else she's narrated.

 
 
 
 
 
One title from your TBL (to be listened) stack, or your audio wishlist:
And Then I Found You by Patti Callahan, read by Shannon McManus

    1. Innocent Traitor was really good - it's with a whole cast of narrators, which is a nice change from the single narrator that I usually end up with.

  8. I had Winter Garden in my hands as a library loan but I had to return it before I had a chance to listen to it. I hate when that happens!

  9. I stumbled across your blog today and was so excited. This seems like the perfect spot to find great summer reading books. As a literature teacher I am constantly looking for new books for both myself and my high school students.
    Please check out the blog that I recently started: measuredmylifeincoffeespoons.wordpress.com

  11. Stina Nielsen narrates a series that my husband and I like by Laurraine Snelling. She really is quite good.

  12. Susan Erickson for me is Eve and Roark (In Death series), not sure if I could "hear" her as anyone else. Willing to give it a try.

    1. I think that is what will happen with Lorelei King - she's now Stephanie Plum from the Janet Evanovich series!
