AUDIOBOOK MONTH | CANADIAN BOOK CHALLENGE | PARIS IN JULY 29.6.15


JUNE IS


~
MONTH !
~
Audiobooks have majored in my weekend featuring not a few rainstorms.
I've been enjoying the focus on audiobooks as I've learned over the years
to find storytellers that bring books to life.
Amanda McKnight is just such an artisan.
Jessica Dotta's Price of Privilege series benefits from Amanda's emotive abilities
to create atmosphere, uniquely characterize antagonists and protagonists,
create settings, and oh, those amazing Brit accents!
~
My treat this weekend was a hoopla streaming of the final in the trilogy,
PRICE OF PRIVILEGE.
Edge of the seat kind of drama and intensity!
Characters who'd revealed themselves in the earlier novels,
now gave their final farewells in multiple ploys and plottings.
Such an amazing story of thought and action, Ms Dotta is a masterful writer.
Have you checked out the series?  Hoopla is available free via your library card.
Can it get easier than that?
~
Well...  maybe having an audio or 2 arrive in my mailbox ?!
This week brought a perfectly timed package direct from the audiobook narrator.
Appreciation to Tanya Eby for selecting an audio she recommended for this mystery fan -
a new to me author and series by Katherine Hall Page set in the English countryside.
You already know I'm scrounging for more listening time, right?
~
~
and I had the pleasure of completing Victoria Connelly's multi-layered English family drama,
THE ROSE GIRLS
narrated with a dramatically characterized cast by Fiona Hardingham.
A definite delight I discovered earlier in my mailbox this audiomonth of June!

I recently discovered audiobooks and absolutely loved them. I had started with Ann Granger when I was having some eye problems. Those narrators are brilliant :)

Oh, I didn't know it was Audiobook month! Haha. I'm happy that I'm getting into more audiobooks (:
Also, I'm a terrible Canadian who's been meaning to try to read more Canadian lit. Good luck with the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by Bookmunchies :D
