Armchair Audies 2015
Once again, I like to thank Literate Housewife for holding this fabulous event.
What’s the Armchair Audies?
In her words:
The inspiration for this challenge was the simple volume of categories and audiobooks nominated each year by the APA for the Audie Awards. There are 5 or 6 audiobooks nominated in each of the nearly 30 categories. As audiobook lovers, we’re deeply interested in the awards. As I’ve yet to run into anyone who has listened to much more than a handful of of the nominees. There simply isn’t enough time to listen to each of the nominees to adequately judge and predict each category. In banding together, bloggers can cover much more territory. Thus the Armchair Audies were born and I’m thrilled it’s become an annual event.
How to participate?
They welcome all reviews for any of the finalists. If you reviewed any of the books in the finalists’ list you can participate by linking your review to the event or becoming a judge for any of the categories. You can read all about it HERE on the Armchair Audies official page.
Hot Listens congratulates all the finalists!! This year I’ll help judge and pick a winner for the Romance category.
To be honest, I’m never happy with their choices (as most of the hardcore romance listeners ever are), although this year I’m thrilled to see Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews, narrated by Renee Raudman and Rumor Has It by Jill Shalvis, narrated by Karen White.
I have started to listen to the rest of the finalists now.
If you’d like to judge this category with me, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join me, let’s predict the winner! This should be fun 🙂
