Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s prompt is Characters I’d Like to Switch Places With, and I actually switched weeks with Scrill so I could do this prompt because this is one I’m going to love to do!! I’m all about the characters in the books I read so here goes!!
Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller
Audiobook Length: 9 hrs 11 mins
Just listened to this audio book in one sitting this past Sunday!!! It was great! I have a love for anything Tricia Levenseller writes. Her female characters are always so strong and witty and I love the way they can fend for themselves. I was so into this audiobook I couldn’t stop until I’d heard it all!
Sadie by Courtney Summers
Audiobook Length: 7 hrs 57 mins
If you’re looking for a truly unique listening experience, look no further. This is set up as half POV from Sadie and half as a podcast. The podcast part is narrated by a full cast making it seem real. The podcast parts of this book make this a perfect book to be read by audio. I loved how different it was.
LifeL1k3 by Jay Kristoff
Audiobook Length: 12 hrs 27 mins
This one is so action packed and fast paced it blows you away.The chapters are broken up into so many smaller sections its easy to get lost thinking, just one more chapter.
Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young
Audiobook Length: 8 hrs 40 mins
YES so much YES! This audiobook was fantastic. I fell in love with the characters and the world instantly. The only sad part is the fact that its only the one book!! I could be happy with two or three 🙂
Warcross by Marie Lu
Audiobook Length: 11 hrs 46 mins
This was one of my first audiobooks I ever listened to. Its fun getting to sit back and close your eyes and imagine such a colorful gaming world.
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James
Audiobook Length: 7 hrs 38 mins
Told from the POV of one girl, alone, in outerspace. Its hard not to get a little claustrophobic but I found that I really liked not knowing what was happening and finding out as the main character did.
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
Audiobook Length: 9 hrs 26 mins
These books!!!! I’m not normally a fan of historical fiction, but this whole series stole my heart and ran with it. I love the characters, and the dynamics between them all, not to mention the spooky atmosphere, they were perfection!!!
Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
Audiobook Length: 15 hrs 28 mins
One of my favorite books of the year so far. This audiobook was wonderful. The narrator was easy to listen to, and when it ended I kept thinking, there’s no way that was 15 hours, I want more!!!
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
Audiobook Length: 7 hrs 25 mins
Once again, Tricia Levenseller has captured my heart with another one of her fantastic female characters. The narrators voice in this one fits the main character perfectly and I found myself literally LOL’ing at the crazy comments and dialogue. I love these books so much.
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Audiobook Length: 16 hrs 12 mins
This is one of those books that I think might be even better in audiobook than physically reading it. The voice of the narrator is perfect for the lingo of the characters. I felt like more connected with the story because it seemed to be like Darrow was speaking to me straight out of the book. So much better than what I could come up with in my mind.
Do you have any books that just seem better on audio? What are some of your favorites? Do you prefer audiobooks to other forms of reading? I just recently started getting into audiobooks and I love the ability to multitask while reading. It has made some of the more daunting books on my TBR seem not so bad when you can just sit back and listen to them!!! I’d love to know what you think!
So many of these are on my TBR! Can I ask where you get your audiobooks from, or any sites you’d recommend? Very new to the audiobooking game!
I started out just with an Audible subscription where I was paying 14$ a month for one credit per month but I kind of started veering away from there since its on the pricier side and only use audible when I can’t find an audio book I want to read on my library app. I use Libby for my library audio books though and its fantastic! if your library doesn’t support Libby though, overdrive was one I have used before and its through the library as well and works pretty good… I hope that helps!!! I’m still figuring things out myself though so I’m sure there are others out there that might be even better than these!
