Audiobook fans know that a narrator can make or break a book. I’ve even been known to pick up an audiobook simply because of the narrator. Here are some recommendations of audiobook narrators that I enjoy plus one of their stories that I enjoyed.
Looking to try audiobooks? Consider Libro.fm. They offer a monthly subscription similar to Audible but it supports your local bookstore. Use my affiliate link to sign up.
It’s no secret that I’m a book box lover. Part of the fun is trying to guess the upcoming month’s books (even if I don’t subscribe). Here’s a round up of what I think will be in the upcoming month’s boxes. I’ll update this post as new themes are revealed. These posts are typically scheduled around the 15th of each month.
If you’d like to play along, drop your guesses in the comments and I’ll add them to the post! If you think I’m wrong, please leave a comment as to which book is a better fit.
Let me know if I’m missing a box you think should be added to the list.
If you work for one of the boxes below and would like to offer a discount code to my readers or a referral link, email me and I’d be happy to add it to the post. I’m open to discussing other types of partnerships as well.
I STRONGLY urge you to research a box before buying or subscribing. There’s been some shady behavior and you don’t want to get caught up in it.
You knew a teenager like Charlie Crabtree. A dark imagination, a sinister smile–always on the outside of the group. Some part of you suspected he might be capable of doing something awful. Twenty-five years ago, Crabtree did just that, committing a murder so shocking that it’s attracted that strange kind of infamy that only exists on the darkest corners of the internet–and inspired more than one copycat.
Paul Adams remembers the case all too well: Crabtree–and his victim–were Paul’s friends. Paul has slowly put his life back together. But now his mother, old and senile, has taken a turn for the worse. Though every inch of him resists, it is time to come home.
It’s not long before things start to go wrong. Reading the news, Paul learns another copycat has struck. His mother is distressed, insistent that there’s something in the house. And someone is following him. Which reminds him of the most unsettling thing about that awful day twenty-five years ago.
It wasn’t just the murder.
It was the fact that afterward, Charlie Crabtree was never seen again…
Recently book boxes (specifically FairyLoot and Illumicrate) have been releasing special editions of (YA) older series. The books are older so tend to be out of print or tricky to find. The box releases a new edition with exclusive cover and are offered signed or not signed.
Obviously, book lovers are loving it. I haven’t been able to snag any yet. Between the choices, selling out quickly, or the price point, it wasn’t meant to be yet. I’m here to dream a little bit and put out my wish to the universe to make these happen.
