[Tag] The Audiobook Tag

Time for another Tag Thursday! I came across this fun one from Kristin Kraves Books and since I love to listen to audiobooks, it only made sense for me to jump on this one!

HAVE YOU ALWAYS LISTENED TO AUDIOBOOKS OR WHEN DID YOU BEGIN?

I think I started listening to audiobooks sometime in 2013 or so. I don’t really remember, but I know it had to do with Audible and then finding out that the libraries had Hoopla and Libby (which used to be Overdrive) and all that.


WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE AUDIOBOOK?

Oh wow that’s a hard one. I would say Illuminae or Broken Things. For me it also really depends on who the narrator is. For me, that can make or break an audiobook for me.


WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT AUDIOBOOKS?

When the narrator isn’t engaging or just puts me to sleep. If I can’t understand them even if I’m listening at a normal speed.


WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE DIFFERENCE IN EXPERIENCE BETWEEN PHYSICALLY READING A BOOK AND LISTENING TO IT?

It’s really just how engaged you are. Both ways are great ways to process a book, and I feel like listening to a book that is a genre that you don’t really like to read normally can help you expand your genre tastes.


HOW AND WHEN DO YOU LISTEN?

I use either Hoopla, Libby, Scribd, or Audible, and I listen to it both commuting to and from work, or sometimes at work when I need to concentrate or want to be antisocial.


WHAT STYLE/GENRE DO YOU PREFER?

Young Adult novels are my favorite, but sometimes I’ll listen to historical fiction and full cast novels that are fun to engage in.


WHAT ARE SOME AUDIOBOOK/NARRATOR RECOMMENDATIONS?

Jennifer Ikeda, Kami Garcia, Erin Spencer, Sarah Drew, Kathleen Gati, Illuminae, Broken Things, The Bear and the Nightingale.

  1. I definitely enjoy reading audiobooks, but it depends greatly on the reader. If I don’t like their voice, I usually don’t continue listening.

    Great post!

    1. Thanks so much Sara! Yes, that’s how I feel so much! I feel like if I can’t listen to their voice, or I feel like the voice doesn’t match the character very well, then I can’t listen to it. That’s happened to me a couple of times and I ended up either reading the physical book or skipping it completely.
