Top Ten Tuesday this week is about
❄ Top Ten Audio Books ❄
I absolutely love audiobooks. My love for them goes a long way back, all the way to my childhood. I used to get those children's CD audiobooks (alongside the actual story books!) as presents. When I got a bit older I used to go to the library to loan them (I was lucky enough to grow up on the same street as our local library was).
I rediscovered audiobooks in the summer of 2012. I got a summer job which was a very tedious and manual job where we were allowed to listen to our own music with headphones. I started to get bored with my playlists so I decided to give audio books a try. I still remember the first book I listened - The Host by Stephanie Meyer. Not that long ago I had been a huge Twilight fan and I found out the author had released a new book some time ago. It didn't take that many days to finish The Host as an audiobook! I was so sold on the whole concept. Since then I've listened to dozens of audiobooks while travelling on the bus or plane, before sleeping, while jogging, pretty much everywhere and whenever I have had the chance. I haven't kept a record of them, but I'm guessing I listen around 12 to 16 audiobooks a year.
Here's a list of some my favorites! They are no in particular order but I have selected them for the storytelling extraordinaire.
