Audio books, I love them!
I love to sit back and enjoy a great book, but there are times when audio books come in handy.
I love audio books! First of all, I can multitask. Yes, I find myself doing things around my home while listening to an audio book. I can cook, bake, garden, etc. while enjoying the words of my favorite authors. I feel total disconnected from the world around me once those headsets come on.
Secondly, some books are just amazing to listen to. I admit I have read and reread Gabriel’s Inferno and Gabriel’s Rapture by Sylvain Reynard many times, but the audio versions are amazing. There is something about listening to the intonation and the emotions of the characters as the book is being read to you. The characters come alive.
Other books that I have read but loved even more after listening to the audio were Tangled by Emma Chase, Beautiful Bastard and Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren and The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
The two most recent books I listened to on audio were Sempre and Sempre Redemption by J.M. Darhower which I just finished last night. These books top my list of favorites. Listening to the Italian words/the pronunciations, the language, and most importantly, the emotions was incredible. If you are looking to start audio books, this is a series I highly recommend and will be reviewing real soon.
For me, audio books make stories come alive. Whether you are listening at home, in your car, while walking your dog or folding your clothes, the experience is truly wonderful.

Happy Reading and Happy Listening!
