We are participating in the Best Audiobooks of 2014 Blog Hop, hosted by Hot Listens, Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog, and The Book Nympho.
Here are our Top 5 Audiobooks of 2014, in no particular order.
Kinda Like Brothers is our favorite middle grade audiobook of 2014. We loved Coe Booth’s authentic characters and found her story real and relevant. John Clarence Stewart’s narration was perfect and we can’t wait to hear more from him.
Call Me Grim was our favorite young adult audiobook of 2014. Libbi was likable and reasonable, and she won our hearts with her quick wit. Kelly Collins Lintz narrated Elizabeth Holloway’s novel and was just the right voice for this story. We are looking forward to the sequel, out in the fall.
Funny Story: the Incomplete Works of Topher Payne is a ListenUp Original and was intended only for audio. Each story in this collection was made to be heard and it shows. The stories range from laugh-out-loud funny to heartbreaking and each narrator captures the essence of his or her story beautifully.
Pickett’s Charge is one of those incredible Southern novels that stays with you long after you’ve finished it. Charles McNair’s main character, 114-year-old Threadgill Pickett breaks out of an Alabama old folk’s home on a quest and we loved listening to his adventure. Jeremy Arthur’s narration is flawless.
We’re not sure exactly how to categorize Nine Kinds of Naked, but trust us, it’s a good one. Tony Vigorito explores chaos theory and the butterfly effect through interconnected stories spread over the centuries. It’s an absurd masterpiece and Kristin Kalbli excels at bringing the stories to life.
