Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where book bloggers are invited to share their top ten lists centered on a certain theme.
This week I wanted to talk about one of my favorite things: audiobooks! I love listening to audiobooks and discovering new favorite narrators. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite audiobooks that I’ve listened to over the last few months!
- Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo, read by Emily Woo Zeller: I loved this historical YA about a queer Chinese-American teen, and Emily Woo Zeller is one of my favorite narrators!
2. The Awakening of Malcolm X by Ilyasah Shabazz & Tiffany D. Jackson, read by Landon Woodson: This was such a compelling story of Malcolm X’s time in prison, and Landon Woodson really brought the story to life.
3. The Long Ride by Marina Budhos, read by N’Jameh Camara: My coworker recommended this middle grade novel to me, and I’m so glad I picked up the audio! I really liked N’Jameh’s reading and have already listened to another book read by her.
4. Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert, read by Ione Butler: This might be my favorite of the Brown Sisters trilogy! Ione really brought the characters to life and I couldn’t stop listening.
6. Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova, read by Almarie Guerra: I listened to this one last year and I loved it so much that I ended up listening to the entire trilogy within 10 days. I’ve since listened to a bunch of audiobooks by Almarie Guerra!
7. Elatsoe by Darcie Little Badger, read by Kinsale Hueston: I’d heard incredible things about this audiobook, and it totally lived up! Kinsale Hueston’s narration really made the story come to life.
8. When No One is Watching by Alyssa Cole, read by Susan Dalian & Jay Aaseng: I don’t read a lot of adult thrillers, but I’m so glad I picked this one up! The story is so eerie, and the narrators did such a great job capturing the atmospheric elements of the book.
9. My Heart Underwater by Laurel Flores Fantauzzo, read by Amielynn Abellera: This YA contemporary about a queer Filipino-American teen was such a beautiful, emotional story, and Amielynn Abellera really portrayed that. I’m hoping to listen to more books read by her soon!
10. Every Body Looking by Candice Iloh, read by the author: I love audiobooks narrated by the author! This YA novel in verse about identity, sexuality, and self was so moving, and hearing it in the author’s own voice made it even better.
