Audiobook Week Meme

Devourer of Books is hosting Audiobook Week! And for Hump Day, there's a nice, easy meme

Audiobook are you currently reading/you read most recently: Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris
Impressions?: I'm in the middle of the Sookie series and am thoroughly addicted.
How long you’ve been listening to audiobooks: Years, although much more frequently the last 2 years.
First audiobook you ever listened to: I can't remember! Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was an early one.
Favorite audiobook title: I don't have a single favorite, but the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters and narrated by Barbara Rosenblat is definitely my fav. series
Favorite narrator: Barbara Rosenblat--no question. She is amazing with accents. I like Lorelei King who voices the Stephanie Plum series as well.
How do you choose what to listen to versus read? I do both. I will listen to books I've already read, because they give you an entirely different experience. Or I will give a new author a try if the book is read by a favorite narrator.


  1. I really need to check out Barbara Rosenblat, so many people are crazy for her and I'm not sure I've listened to anything she has narrated.

  2. Jen, she's fabulous! You should listen to an excerpt on audible (She does most of Elizabeth Peters's books).

  3. I just started the Sookie series on audio! I've heard great things about Lorelei King. I just may have to listen to book 16 instead of reading it.

  4. You mention two series that I keep hearing about - Sookie and Stephanie Plum but haven't tried yet! Here's my meme.

  5. @Nise'

    Isn't the Sookie series great? Love the narrator.

    @Just Mom

    You should definitely try Janet Evanovich. It's technically mystery, but more like a character based caper. First one is One for the Money which, unfortunately, Lorelei King does not narrate :(
