Audiobook Reviews (3)

In which I share my opinion of audio-books I've listened to.

Tell Me a SecretTell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala (Narrated by Jenna Lamia)
This was one of the most talked about books of last year. It's quite original and deals with a somewhat unexplored issue in YA Lit. A very enjoyable realistic story that will keep you engrossed by the wonderful narrator. Also, these new audiobooks now come with amazing music! I actually listened to this as a free podcast I downloaded and listened to on my phone, so since it's a series you hear "music by symbion project" before every chapter. If you've never listened to an audiobook, I strongly suggest you download this one for free and try. Download here!

Book:  ★★★★
Narrator:  ★★★★★
Recommended audio? Yes.

Fly on the Wall: How One Girl Saw EverythingFly on the Wall by E. Lockhart (Narrated by Caitlin Greer)
I really, really enjoyed this book SO much. And I really think it was mostly because the audiobook was great. Like, addicting kind of great. I could barely stop listening, and although the story actually is great, it's not as gripping as the audiobook is. The narrator has a fresh and clean and very enjoyable voice making Lockhart's wonderful writing even more real. I really recommend this one.

Book:  ★★★★
Narrator:  ★★★★★
Recommended audio? YES!

Where She WentWhere She Went by Gayle Forman (Narrated by Dan Bittner)
I might be biased in this one because I am completely in love with Adam. Where She Went surpassed way above and beyond my love for If I Stay. I normally either read OR listen to a book. But every once in a while a gorgeous book comes along that makes me want to re-re-re-re read as many times as possible. I read this one early this year and was awestruck with its absolute perfection. So when I saw the audiobook available I squealed! I wanted to hear Adam. My Adam. Unfortunately, that obnoxious voice was NOT my Adam. He sounded old and bored and just not sexy or Adam-like. I couldn't take it anymore after disc one. I was afraid it would ruin the book for me. So I wont actually comment on the narrator because I was too focused on how much he, sadly, didn't sound like Adam.

Book:  ★★★★
Narrator:  -
Recommended audio? Nope.

  1. I love audio books and have gotten to the point where I hate driving if I do not have one to listen to. I just finished Magnolia League and The Gathering and enjoyed both immensely. I will have to try all three of these, but I think I will start with A Fly on the Wall though sounds like it will be my next one. Thanks for the recommendations.

  2. These all sound like awesome audio books - I'm liking the inclusion of some music!

  3. I guess I should read Where She Went and not listen to it. And reread it again and again! :P
