I love listening to audio books! It makes your drive to school, commute to work, or time exercising go so much faster (and it makes it easier to juggle multiple books at a time, since it makes it harder to mix them up when one is print and one is audio).
Never tried an audio book? Here are some of my personal favorites from the YA section:
The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling, read by Jim Dale – My all-time favorite audio books. Jim Dale has a way of really bringing all the characters to life.
The His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman, read by a full cast – Yes that’s right, a full cast of people doing different voices, like a radio play. It took some getting used to but it was definitely cool to listen to and very well done.
Fire by Kristin Cashore – This is an AWESOME fantasy series. I read the first and third books but listened to the second one, and the reader did a great job of capturing the story and setting the right tone.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins – Most of the time for audio books I like something light and fun, since often I listen to them in my car. So this love story was the perfect choice!
