Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and 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 theme is:
March 26: Audio Freebie
OK, it’s time for a shameful truth. I’ve only read one audiobook in my life and that was in January 2019.
*waits for sounds of shock to subside* Yes. I know. It’s a pretty poor show. I’m so used to sitting down and reading physical books that I’d never really thought about trying audio until last year. But there was so much hype surrounding a few 2018 audiobooks that I thought I’d try one I got free with my Kindle Unlimited subscription. And I enjoyed it a lot.
So I’m hoping to read more of them this year, and now that I’m learning to drive, I’m going to need them. Audible here I come. And these are 10 I might start with.
These are all modern classics that I’ve been wanting to read for ages but have never picked up. (OK, that’s not quite true of Catch 22; I’ve tried to read it twice and it never stuck.) I think they’d be perfect audiobook choices, because they’re all heavy on the prose and slower-paced.
I’ve heard that all three of these are amazing on audiobook, because they all have multiple narrators. Priory would be a re-read for me, but I’d be more than happy to pick that glorious book up again.
These books are powerful and hard-hitting and I’d like to hear them narrated, as I think it would bring even more potency to each story.
Have you read any of these physical form or on audiobook? Do you have any recommendations for which book I should read as my second (ever) audiobook?
