Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader. Each week, she posts a topic and you can make a list that fits that topic.

This week is an audio freebie, meaning it can be on any kind of audio. I’ve opted to go with my top audio books. I’ve only been listening to audio books since last spring, and I haven’t listened to a whole lot. These are my favorites of those I have.

This is probably my favorite audio book of all time. Katherine Kellgren is hilarious. Her pacing and intonation are delightful. I listen to books while I drive, and I was cracking up while listening to this book. She did a masterful job.

This was the first book I ever listened to, and it was really good. It has duel narrators for Elle and Darien, and I really liked how it was done.

This was a fun listen. I enjoyed hearing how the author went from being a binge-buyer to a minimalist. It gave me a lot to think about.

This one took me awhile to get into, but once I got used to the narrator, I highly enjoyed the story. I am highly anticipating the next one.

I really liked the narrator, Michael Crouch, on this one. I thought he did a great job.

So, I just have five favorite audio books. The rest have mostly been self-help books, and while I enjoyed listening to them, they weren’t favorites like these. Here are a few books I want to listen to:

I loved the book, and I heard the audio is amazing. I can’t wait to listen to it.

Again, I’ve heard nothing but praise for this full cast audio book.

I’m assuming it’ll be just as fun as Geekerella.

So, that is my top 5 audio books plus three I’m looking forward to listening to! What are some of your favorite audio books?
