Monday Mayhem – Audiobook binge

I’ve been on an audiobook binge this summer – thank you Central Arkansas Library System and Overdrive.

Margaret’s Summer Reading (Listening) List

1) Britt-Marie Was Here – Another delightful character study by Fredrik Backman. The humor is off-kilter, but the heart is spot-on.

2) The Room on the Rue Amelie – Kristin Harmel’s story of the ordinary people who did extraordinary work in French resistance during WWII.

3) Far From the Tree – Robin Benway wove a wonderful tale of three teenagers with nothing more in common than a mother who gave them for for adoption.

4) Crazy Rich Asians – Kevin Kwan’s over-the-top Southeast Asian soap opera had me riveted. Reminded me of those fabulous Jackie Collins books of the 1980s-90s. I picked this up because I was enthralled by the trailer for the movie coming this August.

5) China Rich Girlfriend – The follow up to Crazy Rich Asians. Listening now and just as enthralled.

I’ve become a big fan of audiobooks. I started out just listening to them in the car. Now, I listen all over the place. I particularly like them for re-reads. I thoroughly enjoyed all of Jim Dale’s narration of the Harry Potter series. Davinia Porter not only rocks all the Outlander books, but she reads Marion Zimmer Bradley’s The Mists of Avalon. I’ve listened to all of Susan Elizabeth’s Phillips backlist as well as Herman Wouk’s timeless Winds of War and War and Remembrance.

How about you? Do you listen to audiobooks? Hear anything good lately? Don’t forget that the entire Love Games series will be available in audiobook. LOVE GAME and PLAY FOR KEEPS are available now, and DOUBLE PLAY will be coming this fall!

  1. I would dearly love to try to read an audiobook, but I fear I wouldn’t be able to focus due to my wandering mind. I’m always in awe of the number of books you read/listen to. This summer, I hope to catch up on the pile of books waiting to be read on my Kindle. Oh, and I should probably write, too…

  2. I’ve never been able to listen to an audiobook. I’ve never tuned in to a podcast, either. If I don’t have something in front of my face to focus on, it all just becomes background noise, I’m afraid. Glad it works for you, though! One of my pals has a long commute and is a dedicated audiobook lover. I’m jealous of how many titles she can consume in a month’s time!
