Audiobook Week Mid-Week Meme

I saw this floating around the blogosphere and decided to pretend to be a real blog and participate. :)


Current/most recent audiobook:

The Highlander's Touch by Karen Marie Moning, narrated by Phil Gigante


As I work my way into this series (Touch is #3 in the Highlander Saga), I agree with the general consensus that they get better. You can really sense KMM developing her voice and confidence as a writer. Phil Gigante is a really great narrator for her books, though his Scottish accent isn't quite perfect and I will forever prefer him as Barrons.

Current/most recent favorite audiobook:

My favorite recent audiobook is Naked in Death by J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) and read by Susan Ericksen.

I also really, really loved Karen Savage's reading of The Scarlet Pimpernel for LibriVox. And it's freely available for the downloading!

Favorite narrator you’ve discovered recently:

I really enjoyed David Stuart's readings of Sea Swept and Rising Tides. Unfortunately it doesn't look like he is a very prolific audiobook narrator. These aren't recent discoveries, but I do love Scott Brick and Edward Hermann as readers.

One title from your TBL (to be listened) stack, or your audio wishlist:

I should be beginning The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson shortly. He's always a hoot.



  1. Bill Bryson is great! A couple years ago I downloaded A Short HIstory of Nearly Everything, but was bummed to discover it was abridged :-( A couple of his other books are on my wish list.

    1. I had that same experience with A Short History. Ended up sending it back to the library and getting the full version - definitely worth reading. I need to check out some more of his books.
