It's Thursday again!
This week we are talking about audiobooks! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this topic. You can share your favorites or you can just share your thoughts in general. As always, anything goes!
I've only listened to three books on audiobook, so I'll give you my review on those three.
1. Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan
As for the novel itself, I would say it's geared towards readers ages 10-16, but even I enjoyed it immensely. It is such a beautiful story and it gave me a new perspective on a very controversial issue. I highly recommend it.
4 out of 5 stars
2. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
As for Along for the Ride as a novel, I thought it was good, not great, but good. I think it's probably just not my style. The story was nice and there was a good amount of depth to it considering how I expected it to be on the shallow side. I know there are many Dessen fans out there, and as far as contemporary teen lit goes, I can see why she's so popular.
3 out of 5 stars
3. Fire by Kristin Cashore
As for the novel itself, I cannot rave enough about Kristin Cashore. She is quickly becoming one of my favorite YA writers. The world she has created in Graceling, Fire and Bitterblue is so enthralling and consuming, I never want to leave. On top of that, her female characters are some of the best in her genre.
5 out of 5 stars
Well there are my reviews. All in all, I would say that the reader makes all of the difference when it comes to audiobooks. I love getting audiobooks from the library and putting them on my iPod. It's just too easy. Unfortunately, I can't listen to them all the time because the boys are adamant on not letting me enjoy them. This is all I hear from the backseat: "What happened?" "Who did that?" "Why is she crying, Mom?" So I just turn on Kids Place Live instead.
