#JIAM – Sophia’s Audio Top Ten Wishlist #LoveAudiobooks

Posted by on Jun 7, 2017 in Miscellaneous, News | 32 comments

Well here it is- my Santa list as an audiobook listener. These are items I do not need, but oh my yes I do wants to have them (yes you heard a bit of Golum’s ‘my precioussss’ in that).

Bluetooth Headset1. Wireless earbuds
As I’ve nearly hung myself a few times with my current earbuds, I think this would be a good move as soon as I can. And because I listen while doing chores or out on walks, I’ve fixated on the SENSO Bluetooth Headphones

2. Sports Armband for Phone

I haven’t settled on a specific one. I have an older LG and not an iPhone so I must get the fit right on this. As aforementioned, I listen to books while active so the armband would be a great accessory, I think.

3. The remainder of Diana Gabaldon’s books I do not already have

First, its Davina Porter and Jeff Woodman, favorite narrators we have here, but second, the Outlander world of stories are re-reads and relistens.

4. The remainder of Ilona Andrew‘s books I do not already have.

My reasoning is much the same as above, but insert Renee Raudman as the narrator.

5. The remainder of Patricia Brigg‘s books I do not already have.

Ditto with Lorelei King’s work here.

Undead and Taxes by Drew Hayes6. Drew Hayes’s Fred the Vampire Accountant series

I got book one with audio and Kirby Heybornes’ narration. It was fantastic and I just can’t imagine not having Heybourne narrating Fred’s adventures.

7. My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland

I have not started this series, but I’ve listened to samples. I think this is another series I would love all the more in audio.

8. Audible credits

Let’s not be greedy, say… a credit a month? But, if you can’t swing that, Santa, a Tantor gifting would not go amiss, either.

9. More audio selections through my library Overdrive program offerings.

They do not get a full series for whatever reason or pick them up in order. I’ve put in requests and they’ve been good at filling them, but I found the practice odd that there can be a book four, but no book one. So yes, better offerings. And an Overdrive type library program for the internationals who do not have such a wonderful opportunity.

10. More books and narrators for my wish list.

An odd addition perhaps, but not really for me. I don’t typically find my favorites on my own so reading a blog review, a newsletter listing, or getting a recommendation really are gifts to me. Keep ’em coming, guys.

 

So there you have it, my wish list. What are some items that would make your list?

  1. Can’t argue with your list! Hubby got me a set of wireless headphones two Christmases ago and I covet them! Hope you get those earbuds.

    I collected the Outlander series on audio and will never let them go.

    Here’s wishing you well for the rest of your list!

  2. So many goodies. I need some wireless earbuds as well. I listen constantly while active. Sophia, have you checked your local library for audiobooks? I am always checking out audiobooks online through the Overdrive App. You don’t even have to go to the library and they have a terrific selection. Totally saves money.

  3. The Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega Series by Patricia Briggs are amazing! If you haven’t yet experienced the magic of both entire series, I highly recommend them!
    And I live on my wireless earbuds. Though I must admit I haven’t found a pair that lasts longer than 3-4 months yet (they all seem to start working or syncing well after about that long given my heavy use of them).

    • I’ve listened to the first three books in the Mercy Thompson series, but yes, I want all the rest and her Alpha & Omega series, BJ. πŸ™‚

      Oh, wow, good to know that the earbuds might not hold up. I’ll have to pay attention to see if some are more long-lasting than others.

  4. Great Santa list Sophia Rose, I would LOVE to listen to Diana Gabaldon’s books but don’t you need like a month for each one LOL
    Drew Hayes series HAS to be experienced on audible no doubt but it’s available on hoopla to borrow through my library. Worth a Try

    • Haha! Yeah, I took three months to listen to Dragonfly in Amber and it will probably take that for Drums of Autumn which is the one I’m on right now.

      Oh, Hoopla. I’ll have to check that out. I’ve got the Overdrive app and have used it, but not tried Hoopla. Thanks, Debbie!

  5. That is a great list!!! πŸ™‚ I would love a great set of wireless epuds and a wrist holder for my phone! πŸ™‚

  6. I would gladly take more audible credits. I have a huge wish list! And yes to all Ilona Andrews/Renee Raudman books. I think I have most (Edge, Kate, Innkeeper, and Hidden Legacy, which I’m listening to now).

    • It’s fun to dream. I look at my audio wish list and know that even Audible credits won’t keep up, but then neither can I so that’s okay. LOL

      I’ve got three Edge and all the Hidden Legacies left to get so plenty to keep me occupied. πŸ™‚ Good luck with your Santa list, too, Jen!

  7. Wireless is the way to go!! White Trash Zombie is an audio only series for me. You’re in for a treat. I still need to finish listening to Andrew’s Edge series.

    • I am more than convinced, Jennifer. πŸ™‚

      Yep, I’ve resisted print copies of that series after seeing the glowing reviews and listening to the samples. Some it doesn’t matter, but other series, audio-only. πŸ™‚

  8. Well that’s a great list! I have cheap wireless earbuds and I use them sometimes. I certainly agree on the Ilona Andrews and Patricia Briggs. I also have yet to read Diana Rowland but I got the first one in print at RT. I am for everything being at the library. I have expanded it by forcing my brother to get a library card in the big city where he lives which has been awesome. I mean he’s paid taxes there 30 years and there’s no reason he shouldn’t have a card (for me) especially since I only access digital which doesn’t cause any wear and tear. He’s such a good brother – he went and got it on his lunch hour the day I asked since they had something I wanted. Anyway, I wish you get all your wishes to come true! Anne

    • Thanks, Anne!

      I figured go big since its a ‘Wish’ List. My library has the next Ilona Andrews for listening so I’ll go that route, but if I get the chance to own without breaking the budget….I’m there. So cool about your wonderful brother going done on his break and getting the card for you. πŸ™‚

  9. I’ve almost strangled myself with my earbuds as well! Ditto on the Outlander series on audio! Almost done listening to Fiery Cross, I always, always have one of the books going on my devices.

    • LOL! I just wonder how many of us are that one twist of the wire away from danger when it comes to our earbuds, Nise’.

      I’m on The Fiery Cross chapter two. I’m hoping to have it finished by this fall. Haha, they are so long, but I do love them. I listen slower because I squeeze review listens in between. I can stretch out the series love longer that way. πŸ™‚

  10. I’m always in need of more codes so I can’t fault you on that. And I too want wireless headphones. Like you said, otherwise you tend to get chocked. As far as the Outlander series goes I have all of those so that’s not something I’d put on my list. As far as White Trash Zombie goes I’m not sure if I’d want that. Even though I’ve heard good things about it I’m still hesitant.

  11. Not sure why this came up as anonymous. Let’s try this again…

  12. This is a great list! I had the same audiobooks on my wish list and just added Drew Haye’s books. I hadn’t heard of that before and it sounds really good. I agree about Overdrive. It is frustrating when they don’t offer all the books in a series.

    • Oh neat, Kathy! Hope you end up liking his books. Melanie just reviewed the starting book in another new series he wrote that sounds great, too.

      I try to be grateful with Overdrive b/c it really is a nice thing, but yes, LOL, I could use getting a series in order. Haha.
