Day 3 What have you read and loved because of a fellow blogger?
Book blogger buzz makes me add so many books to my virtual TBR pile that I decided to post about a few favorite audiobooks today, to make it a more manageable-sized list.
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray, narrated by Libba Bray
Oops, I thought Care from Care’s Books and Pie recommended this hilarious audiobook to me, but it turns out I recommended it to her! I don’t remember a particular blogger’s recommendation, but I used to get a lot of audio recommendations through the weekly Sound Bytes link-up (which, sadly, is no more) at Devourer of Books, so I may have caught the buzz about Beauty Queens there.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, narrated by Wil Wheaton
I definitely listened to this story of a do-or-die gamer quest because of book blogger buzz during Audiobook Week. (I think there may be a Wil Wheaton fan club subset out there.) but again, I’m not sure if it was anyone in particular. I loved it so much I never wrote up my review, but it made my list of Better on Audio.
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin, narrated by Scott Brick
I thought this book about a grouchy bookseller would be too cutesy, but book blogger buzz convinced me to try The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry (even to buy my own copy because I couldn’t get it from the library!) although, again, I can’t pinpoint a particular review. Read my review, please, and then beg, borrow, or
steal buy the audiobook!
If one of these avid audiobook listeners recommends an audiobook, I usually listen! (I hope I’m not forgetting anybody!)
I need to start making notes and keeping better records of who recommended what for the next BBAW!
And now that Andi, Heather, and the gang have brought back BBAW, who else wants to bring back Audiobook Week this June?
