Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish. But now lives over at That Artsy Reader Girl and you can check out her post here. It is a weekly bookish question that bloggers answer on their own blogs. Feel free to join in the fun as well.
Today’s post is courtesy of my organised self who existed two months ago. She no longer exists so I was going to skip this week until I discovered it this morning.
1. The Book Thief
Look the narrator had quite a monotonous voice, but the book is incredible and I fell back in love with it and cried a whole lot so I guess that’s a win for audiobooks.
2. Go Set a Watchman
It was narrated by Reese Witherspoon so I survived the American accent (which let’s be honest is how Scout would have sounded). I loved this because it reminded me of how powerful the story really was.
3. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
This book is in my top ten, and as an audio book, I just felt like all of the characters were speaking to me and we became even closer friends.
4. The Tale of Despereaux INSTA PHOTO
I hadn’t read the physical book in years but came across the audiobook at the library so I read it. It was nice to catch up with an old world. I once knew incredibly well.
5. The ABC Murders INSTA PHOTO
Murder mysteries are even more thrilling when there is dramatic music playing in the background.
6. The Adventures of the Christmas Pudding
This was very short (45 minutes from memory) and I had forgotten parts of it, so it was like a brand new mystery.
7. The Hound of the Baskervilles
This was abridged. Please don’t do that to books. I don’t care how long they are. And especially don’t cut out half of Sherlock’s discoveries and leave his deductions intact.
8. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Volume 2 INSTA PHOTO
It was dramatised so I was happy.
9. The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes INSTA PHOTO
Just saying Stephen Fry is the best narrator ever and would love to listen to the entirety of this series if I had the money to buy it all.
10. All the Light We Cannot See INSTA PHOTO
The narrator was not the best (although I could listen to the whole thing) but the book is the best and I enjoyed taking the time to stop and listen.
