It’s that time of the year again! Since the first edition, the Armchair Audies has been one of my favorite book blogging events. I’ve discovered lots of great reads but unfortunately, have yet to put my money in the winner – maybe this year? I’ve also noticed that this time around all books I searched for were available to me on Audible.com, while in previous years there were lots of annoying country restrictions.
I was really torn between categories. History, Female Narrator, Male Narrator, Fiction, and Sci-fi looked really interesting, but I’ll go with Literary Fiction & Classics. (Still a bit confused about the difference between fiction and literary fiction.)
Several reasons for the choice: a couple of them were already under my radar, there’s a nice diversity in the writers, narrators, topics and geographical setting, and none are sequels.
So these are the books I’ll listen to by mid-May:
- The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma, read by Chukwudi Iwuji
- Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson, read by Kieron Elliot
- Little Big Man by Thomas Berger, read by Scott Sowers, David Aaron Baker, and Henry Strozier
- Sweetland by Michael Crummey, read by John Lee
- ‘Til the Well Runs Dry by Lauren Francis-Sharma, read by Ron Butler and Bahni Turpin
