Audiobook Week is hosted by Jen at Devourer of Books.
That Summer by Sarah Dessen read by Mia Barron produced by Random House/Listening Library
Sarah Dessen is probably one of my favorite YA realistic fiction authors. She is so good with her characters, and making them seem and feel real. The audiobook production seems well done, though the narrator sounds a little too old to be the main character, but that could also be a result of the mature dialogue too.
Current/most recent favorite audiobook:
My most recent favorite audiobook is The Help. I love the narrators and really loved the story. It would have to be one of my favorite books this year.
Favorite narrator you’ve discovered recently:
Octavia Spencer--I just loved her on The Help audiobook, and was thrilled to see her in the movie. She was the perfect Minnie--intonation and attitude was just perfect!
One title from your TBL (to be listened) stack, or your audio wishlist:
Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman is next on my "to listen" list. It is read by Jenna Lamia who was one of the narrators on The Help and Secret Life of Bees which are two of my all time favorite books. I can't wait to get this one started.
Your audio dream team (what book or author would you LOVE to see paired with a certain narrator, can already exist or not):
Oooh, I don't know. I will admit right here to being a Trekkie, and I do love to hear Patrick Stewart speak--so I think I would really enjoy listening to him read something historical. I have heard him narrate before and really enjoyed it, so I think he would be a good pick.
