New to Audio? What Should You Start With?

/ posted in: Reading

I love audiobooks. I listen to them whenever I’m driving or working out or just going for a walk.

Lots of people think that they won’t be able to follow audiobooks. Give these ones a try if you are an audiobook beginner.

Ready Player OneReady Player One by Ernest Cline

This book is always on the Best Audiobook Ever lists. Wil Wheaton narrates and is perfect.

 

 


In a Sunburned CountryIn a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson

You won’t go wrong with any Bill Bryson travel book that he narrates himself but this is my all time favorite. Follow Bill around Australia where everything is designed to kill you.

 

 


If at Birth You Don't Succeed: My Adventures with Disaster and DestinyIf at Birth You Don’t Succeed: My Adventures with Disaster and Destiny by Zach Anner

I dare you to get bored listening to this hysterical account of life with cerebral palsy. Follow Zach into reality TV and to working for Oprah and then getting fired by Oprah.

 

 


Working for Bigfoot (The Dresden Files, #15.5)Working for Bigfoot by Jim Butcher

I love all the Dresden Files audiobooks that are narrated by James Marsters. This is three short stories in that universe that you don’t necessary have to know the rest of the series to enjoy. Fall in love with Dresden and his world and then go back and start the series.

 

 


Written in Red (The Others, #1)Written in Red by Anne Bishop

My love fantasy on audio. This series is so well done and the narration is wonderful for the characters.

 

 

 


Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega, #1)Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

More werewolves. I’m not sure why they go together with audio in my mind.
