Hey guys! After two weeks with no topics, it’s time for Top 5 Tuesday and this week’s topic is Audiobooks. I used to not like audiobooks because I could never stay focused enough to just listen, but I’ve recently started to listen to a few. I’m very picky about the narrator’s voice(s), so it can be hard sometimes for me to find an audiobook that I will listen to. I have managed to pick five that I enjoyed listening to and I can’t wait to check out everyone else’s picks.
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Shanah @BionicBookWorm. Each week we respond to that week’s topic and link back to her page. Go check out her page to join in!
Daisy Jones and the Six is written kind of like an interview, in my opinion, so when I first started reading the book I wasn’t really getting into it. When I saw that my library had it as an audiobook, I thought I try it again. I really liked listening to it instead of trying to read it. It’s almost like you’re there just sitting in a corner listening to the band talk. There are several narrators in this audiobook because there are many characters, which makes me happy because if it had been read by just one person I may have lost interest. I highly recommend it. (You can read my review here).
My mom is actually the one who wanted to read this one and thought it would be a good idea to listen to it in the car on the way to and from my doctor visit (the hospital I go to is 4 hours away). I really enjoyed listening to Rachel read this memoir/self-help book. She has a voice that’s easy to listen to. Each chapter covers something she’s experienced and the lesson she learned from that experience. I really enjoyed listening to it.
This book is a lot like Girl, Wash Your Face. Each chapter covers something Rachel Hollis has been through and what she learned, only this book is more about not apologizing for things and reaching your goals. Rachel is the narrator of this book as well. Again, I really enjoy listening to her books.
I don’t usually read a lot of poetry, but this book has had a lot of hype and I never checked it out. Honestly, I got the audiobook from the library so I could read it quickly. I’m actually really glad that I got the audiobook because the author is the narrator, and in my opinion, authors are the best narrators because they know how they wanted their book to be read. It was so much more emotional, and therefore a better experience with the author reading it than me just reading it to myself.
Again, another book I wanted to read but wanted to read it fast. I ended up really liking this audiobook. Although the author isn’t the narrator, I really liked this narrator (I wish I could remember who it was). I also really enjoyed the book.
