Mid-Week Audiobook Meme

Current/most recent audiobook: Canada by Richard Ford

Impressions: It’s still early. I’m waiting for things to happen. But the narration is good – and familiar since I just read The Art of Fielding.

Current favorite audiobook: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Favorite narrator you’ve discovered recently: Dan Stevens (in The Invisible Ones)

One title from your TBL (to be listened) stack, or your audio wishlist: A Land More Kind than Home by Wiley Cash

Your audio dream team (what book or author would you LOVE to see paired with a certain narrator, can already exist or not): I’m not really sure, so I’m going to suggest one for Jennifer over at The Literate Housewife. Let’s unite the Simons shall we? Simon Vance reading Simon van Booy?


Make sure you check out the other Audiobook Week discussion posts and audiobook reviews over at Devourer of Books.

    I’m not sure Simon Vance reading Simon van Booy should be allowed, that might just give Jennifer a heart attack.

      I think you’re right! She might not make it out of that alive. Too much “Simon” may just be TOO much.

      Hey, I’d like to give it a try anyway. You only live once. Why not go out with a bang? 😉

    (LOL at Jen’s comment!) Have to agree with you on Ready Player One, in fact I think it was your review that pushed me to listen to it. I also adore all of Joshilyn Jackson’s audios as well. I read A Land More Kind Than Home in print, but now I really wish I’d listened. Everyone seems to love it.

    I’m laughing at Jen’s comment, too! Have just added The Invisible Ones to my wish list.

    I have seen Ready Player One on everyone’s blog and so I am adding it to my TBL list. I think it might be my next one.

    What a gift! I can’t believe I didn’t come up with it myself. I guess sometimes you need other people to imagine your nirvana for you. 🙂 Thank you so much!

    Thanks also for being the first of the myriad of Audiobook Week bloggers to push Ready Player One at me. What in the name of God did I wait so long for? Loving it!

    Canada sounds really good, plus I always like Holter Graham.

    I’m pretty sure that a converging of Simons is a sign of the apocalypse,

      Maybe it should be for a zombie book then. Although Simon Van Booy writing a zombie book itself might be a sign of the apocalypse.
