JIAM- Favorite Narrators and Books: Blogger Edition

For the JIAM Event this year, I thought about making a list of my favorite narrators, but had the sinking sensation that doing a Top Five was going to be problematic since I have discovered so many to love over the last year (hey, hsst, I’ve been guest reviewing with Loupe and Melanie for over a year- woohoo) of focusing more on audiobook reviews.
Why torture myself like that when I can hit up a handful of Hot Listens fellow audiobook listeners who who host book review blogs to torture instead. And, I did twist the thumbscrews on them, peeps, because I forced them to name one- and only one- of their favorite narrators and a book or series.

Without further ado, here are the lovely folks who accepted my cruel challenge and sent over a favorite narrator and book series. And, if you’re not already visiting their blogs now and then, drop on by and tell them ‘hey’ when you get a mo’.

Stephanie @Fangs, Wangs and Fairy Dust chose Davina Porter reading the Outlander series

Outlander Audiobook

Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer chose Nicole Poole reading The Crossbreed series by Dannika Dark

Keystone audiobook

Blodeuedd @ Book Girl of Mur-y Castell chose Vikas Adam reading Heartstrikers series by Rachel Aaron

  1. So many great series on this list. Thanks for participating everyone!

  2. *waves from vacation * I had pie for breakfast and I am not ashamed. It was Shoe-fly pie. Noms! The only narrator I have not tried is Adam’s but the rest are in my top ten!

    • I must try Shoe-fly Pie someday. 🙂

      And, I must try Vikas Adams narration and that series, too. 🙂

  3. I just put a few new-to-me narrators on my “to listen” list! I’ll be perusing Audible now as I sit in a local coffee shop in downtown Evergreen.

    • I find that I do the same thing after reading favorites lists. Great idea, Brandee, and great place to hang out. 🙂

  4. Great post Sophia Rose
    I know Mrs. Coffee loves her Danika Dark but I bet the Iron Druid Chronicles was a close second for her I remember her raving about it.

    I really have to give the Outlander series a try in audible but wow, it took me weeks to read it, I may need a month per book on audible LOL

    My wish list is getting long is there anyway to cheat on winning brwahahah 😉

    • I know the feeling. I need at least a six year membership to get through my wish list. Oh, and you are so right about the Outlander series on Audible. You totally get your credit’s worth on that one. I’ve been listening to Drums of Autumn off and on for over a year (54 hours), but I am determined to wrap it up this year. 🙂

        • Yeah, exactly why I’ve been at it since last year. LOL I’ve read the series so this is a re-read and I don’t only listen to this one so I could get through it faster, but just don’t bother.

  5. I have listened to the first 6 books in the Outlander series and think Davina Porter is amazing. I have listend to just the first two books in the Iron Druid series and love Luke Daniels for that series. It would be really hard to pick a favorite!

    • I second that opinion, Carole. I’ve hunted down more work by both those narrators and haven’t been disappointed.

  6. I agree with Kimberly. Nicole Poole is wonderful and my favorite female narrator. Not familiar with all the narrators so I am not dissing them!

    • I got the first of the Magieri in audio so I will definitely be giving her a try in the next little while. 🙂

    • Lorna, you *must* give The Immortals After Dark series a go. You’ll LOVE Robert Petkoff!! 😀

  7. There are so many great things about audiobooks! I have become much more productive since I figured it out.

    • Yes! I love how it allows one to enjoy books even when having to be busy around the house and yard. 🙂

  8. I need to try Immortals After Dark on audiobook. I read the first 5 or 6 I think back many, many years ago. I liked it, but just couldn’t keep up. I’ve heard the narration is fabulous. Thanks!

    • Same here, Jen! I’ve read several of them, but I’m curious to get them on audio now.

    • I didn’t start the IAD series until there were already like 13 out but I started in audio thanks to Carmel (formerly of Rabid Reads 😉 ). She’s the one who convinced me to try Robert Petkoff and he, obviously, is one of my most favorite narrators. 🙂
