Audiobook Giveaway


Hello readers!  I've been a little scarce lately because I'm currently on vacation.  I'll catch up with everyone when I get back. But in the meantime I thought I'd share my love of audiobooks with a giveaway.  
If you're a regular reader here at The Readers Den you'll know of my love of audiobooks.  They help make the hour long commute I have to drive each way to work not only bearable, but enjoyable.  Sometimes, when a book is so good I HAVE to continue listening when I get home. Today I'm featuring my five all-time favorites along with a few more that are really good.   


Number Five:

Never Seduce a Scot

Kirsten Potter is amazing. Her Scottish accent is spot on without being overdone, and her male and female voices are believable. The story is an epic romance with a gorgeous Scottish Laird and a strong, beautiful lass. Win!


Number Four:

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate, #1)

Pride and Prejudice with werewolves, and vampires. A hilarious, clever, supernatural story enhanced by Emily Gray's wonderful performance. 

Number Three:

Iced (Fever, #6; Dani O'Malley, #1)

As if the story wasn't amazing, the narration is perfection! Rarely do you have both a male and female narrator to alternately perform the voices, but we have Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross who were brilliant! Oh, man does Mr. Gigante ever bring Ryodan to life! *melts*


Number Two:

The Chocolate Thief (Chocolate, #1)


This series has seduced and bewitched me.  Romance, chocolate and Paris.  What's not to love? Teri Clark Linden was lovely as the narrator.  Her French was flawless and her performance made this story even more brilliant!


Number One: 

Shadowfever (Fever, #5)

My all-time favorite audio book!! Aside from the fact that this is one of my all-time favorite series', we have Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross performing the male and female voices. Ms. Ross' rendition of Mac and Mr. Gigante's rendition of Barrons is utter perfection! The first three books are performed by a different narrator and I don't recommend them, but when they took over it was sheer magic! 


The books below are also very, very good, and a total recommend (click on titles for Goodreads link):

Fear Nothing (Detective D.D. Warren, #7)  Hounded (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #1)  Moon Called (Mercy Thompson, #1)  How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf (Naked Werewolf, #1)
  



Now for the good part. I'm giving away one audio book from the books mentioned here to one lucky reader.  Entrants must be 18 years or older.  The giveaway is INTERNATIONAL.  Simply fill out the rafflecopter for a chance to win. Good luck!

  2. I wish I could get into audiobooks but, as good as a narrator is, I still get impatient to get on with the story, mostly because I read too fast. *sigh*

  4. ICED and SHADOWFEVER!!! I can't even look at those books right now without dying a little inside over the latest push back of BURNED. I think I just need to prepare myself for the fact that I'm never going to see Ryodan and Dani together. *sobs* Okay, I'm done whining now:)

    Hope you're having a fabulous vacation my friend!

  10. I've actually never listened to an audiobook before. I guess it's because I prefer reading it myself rather than listening to someone else, but I've heard half of Cinder, and I thought it was pretty good. :)
