Listen Up! YA Audiobooks you need to Listen!

Posted 5 June, 2014 by Danny in Blog, Danny, I'm Obsessed With..., Meme / 28 Comments

Audiobooks are not for everyone, but I just love them! They let me add in extra reading time when I usually would not be able to read. Like in the car, doing laundry or when I’m relaxing in the bath (gosh that I love the most!). So here are a few of my recent audiobooks which were so super awesome that I urge you to check them out!

Those are all YA Contemporaries (apart from Rebel Bell which has a paranormal twisty)

*since I was so excited about these books I couldn’t wait to meet Barry Lyga at BEA and he promised the last one will be super duper shocking! Well, bring it on! 

Love Audiobooks? What are you recent favourites? Any recommendations for me?

  1. Audiobooks are the only reason I ever clean! I really love anything Katherine Kellgren narrates and I would also recommend Moira Quick as a narrator, I believe she does Gail Carriger’s books on audio. 🙂

    • The Darynda Jones Audiobooks are phenomenal!!!! Truly, I listened to the whole Charley Davidson series on audio and will always do so because it’s just amazing!

      Also, we talked about Bloodlines right? I also love these on audio!

      Or, super funny – did you ever read the YA series from Sherrylin Kennyon – Chronicles of Nick? Fantastic series and fantastic audiobooks!

    • Thank you thank you thank you for this post (and comment)!
      I listened to two books and didn’t like the narrators, and I’m pretty sure it impacted my thoughts on the books themselves. I hope to have a better experience next time. I have two audible credits so I want to use them wisely — thanks for the recommendations!

  2. You know I’m not much of an audiobook girl – too impatient given how long they are, but I can’t wait to read Rebel Belle! I adored My Life Next Door and can’t wait to read Huntley’s next one. I think I Hunt Killers might traumatize me though. Serial killers? *curls into fetal ball*

    I really loved the audio version of These Broken Stars. The characters were both great but the interviews at the beginning of each chapter had sound effects and an older guy doing the interrogator part. It was a great one for listening on audio book!!

    I love the Jasper Dent series (I Hunt Killers and Game). Charlie Thurston does an awesome job with the narration. The Unknown Assassin (Boy Nobody/I Am the Weapon) series by Allen Zadoff is a great choice if you can’t wait for the third audiobook to come out.

  5. The audiobook is in production for my first book and I’m so excited! Every time I listen to her submissions to approve I squeal a little. A good audiobook can go so far!!

    When mine is done I’ll send you a free one and you can let me know what you think!

    I’m not into audiobooks but I’ve read the books by Lyga and Fitzpatrick and Rebel Belle is in my TBR pile.

    You said the last I Hunt Killers book, that means it’s only a trilogy? I didn’t know that and am so upset! The story and MC are so unique (love, love, LOVE Jasper!) that I was hoping we’d get a few more books from the author!

  7. Ooh! I listened to the audiobook of My Life Next Door earlier this year and loved it. Even though I prefer to read print books/ebooks because it’s faster, I did like how the audiobook slowed down the pace for My Life Next Door, which meant more time with the Garretts! 😀
