Obsession
Audio Obsession is a feature where I spread my love for audiobooks around blogosphere. Here you’ll see all things audio related.

Today I bring to your attention 5 audiobooks with great narration that I enjoyed immensely in 2016. I highly recommend all of them. I described them in short twittish format. I also talk about an amazing series, I read last year.

Shattered Glass (Shattered Glass #1) by Dani Alexander

  • One of the best mm-romances I’ve ever read. Full of humor. Chemistry off the charts. Character driven. Diversity. Fast paced. Engaging mystery.
  • Amazing narration by Joseph Northton.

The Boy Most Likely to by Huntley Fitzpatrick

  • The story wasn’t what I expected. Romance squeezed my heart. I adore chaotic Garretts family.
  • Narration by Jorjeana Marie (I love her performance so much) and MacLeod Andrews (he is very good).

All Played Out (Rusk University #3) by Cora Carmack

  • Romantic and sexy. Nerdy heroine. Charming hero.
  • The reason I loved this book so much is narration. Bernardo de Paulo’s performance is fantastic. He is SOOO GOOD! I squealed in delight every time I heard his voice.
  • PS. This is the third book in Rusk University series, but it can be read as a standalone.

Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

  • I have troubles trying to describe this book in short format. Emotional. Dealing with grieve, but differently. Emails. Mystery. Romance and friendships. Touching author note.
  • Jorjeana Marie is my favorite YA narrator. I love her voice and would listen to anything narrated by her.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

  • Cute and adorable. Well-done male POV. Emails. Lovely mystery (mysterious Blue). Supportive family.
  • Great narration by Michael Crouch.

2016 is a special year for me. I’ve finally done it. I’ve read The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater.

  • I’m in owe of Maggie Stiefvater’s ability to write such a complex story. Every detail was there for some reason. And it amazes me how all these threads weave into a meaningful story in the end.
  • Beautiful story, gorgeous writing. These characters will stay with me for a long time. It was an unforgettable journey. Thank you, Maggie Stiefvater.
  • Great narration by Will Patton.

  1. I absolutely LOVE audiobook! They’re the only things that make my commute to work bearable, haha. Simon Vs. has been on my TBR for the longest time, so hearing that the audiobook is well done (and narrated by Michael Crouch, a narrator I’ve heard such good things about) is really exciting. I’ll have to snag that one soon. :)

  2. Okay, confession time: I’ve actually never listened to an audiobook before, but one of my resolutions for this year was to try some. These definitely sound like great books to start with! Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous post! <3
