Audiobooks :D

I always thought that audiobooks weren't for me because, well, I thought that it'd be like how I listen to music when I'm multitasking, which ends up becoming background noise while I do everything else. Since the only time I would be able to listen to audiobooks is when I'm multitasking, I didn't think that I would be able to pay attention to the story. 

I was wrong.

I went on Audible the other day (when I was supposed to be working on an essay... >__>) to hear samples of audiobooks of books that I had already read just to hear how the narrators would sound, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I was still paying attention to the narrator even though I was reading and looking at other things online at the same time. :D

Soooo, I'm going to give audiobooks a try! I've already downloaded some, and I still have an audiobook that I won a while ago. I just need to stop procrastinating so that I can have some time to listen to them. :)

But you should definitely try out the audiobook of Where She Went by Gayle Forman. The narrator's voice is definitely close to what I imagined Adam to sound like! Actually, I think they used his voice in the book trailer, too... 

And, you should listen to the audiobook of Getting the Girl by Marcus Zusack. The narrator has an Austrailian accent! You know how much I love listening to accents! XD

If you want an Australian girl as a narrator, I suggest you listen to Tomorrow, When the War Began by John Marsden. Not only does she have an awesome accent, but the book's friggin amazing

I can't think of any YA books that would be British... :(

Anyway, I have to go. I need to go to the mall and find a nice blouse for my scholarship interview tomorrow. D: On the bright side, I might be getting an awesome pair of headphones from FYE since they're having a sale on them right now. :D

  1. I can't think of a British YA audibook right now BUT the Skulduggery Pleasant audiobooks are narrated by a guy with an Irish accent! And he does tween girl voices pretty decently, too. :D

    Good luck with your interview! And I hope you enjoy your audiobooks.
