Audiobook Lovin 2017 Presents: Felicia, The Geeky Blogger

Hi everyone! We've all gotten that look of "What are you talking about" when we, a book lover, speaks to a not so book lover. They just don't get us! Which is why when yo do get to chat with a friend who is also a book lover, time goes by so fast and more than an hour is recorded! LOL

I had the pleasure of meeting Felicia in person at this year's RT Book Lovers Convention as we were both part of the "How To Find Your Listening Audience" with Karen White (narrator), Michelle Cobb (AudioFile Magazine & Insatiable Press). I loved being part of the panel and getting to hang out with Felicia. So of course I immediately thought of her when I was thinking it would be a great idea to chat with a fellow blogger and audiobook lover which you can listen below. I've also included some of Felicia's favorites that we think you'll want to check out! 

Top 5 Female Narrators I would suggest starting with because they narrate a wide range of books and have series that you can go down a rabbit hole on :)
  1. Kirsten Potter
  2. Tavia Gilbert
  3. Rosalyn Landor
  4. Lauren Fortgang
  5. Amanda Ronconi

5 More favorites of mine:
  1. Karen White (particularly for contemporary romance)
  2. Susan Duerden (particularly for historical romance)
  3. Johanna Parker (particularly for PNR)
  4. Renee Raudman (particularly for UF)
  5. Abby Craden (particularly for Romantic Suspense)

Top 5 Male Narrators I would suggest starting with because they narrate a wide range of books.
  1. Ray Porter
  2. Sebastian York
  3. Jeffrey Kafer
  4. Tim Campbell
  5. Luke Daniels

5 More Favorites of Mine
  1. Zachary Webber
  2. Bronson Pinchot
  3. Jay Crow
  4. Holter Graham
  5. George Newbern

10 Series I will ONLY do on Audiobook (I am sticking with Romance but willing to give anyone some Cozy Mysteries/Horror too) and totally suggest to those just dipping a toe into Audiobooks. Though my first piece of advice is to start with a story you know so that you can get used to being “read” too again. It helps if you know the story already.

  1. Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews narrated by Renee Raudman  (UF)
  2. Highland Pleasures by Jennifer Ashley narrated by Angela Dawe (Historical)
  3. Season for Scandal by Kelly Bowen narrated by Ashford McNab (Historical)
  4. Rhymes with Love by Elizabeth Boyle narrated by Susan Duerden (Historical)
  5. Alpha and Omega narrated by Holter Graham and Mercy Thompson narrated by Lorelei King ---books by Patricia Briggs (UF)
  6. Fool’s Gold by Susan Mallery narrated by Tanya Eby (Contemporary)
  7. Pretty much any series written by Molly Harper and narrated by Amanda Ronconi (PNR)
  8. White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland narrated by Allison McLemore (UF)
  9. Animal Magnetism by Jill Shalvis narrated by Karen White (Contemporary)

Finally what I have on Pre-Order

An Affair with a Notorious Heiress (Unabridged) by Lorraine Heath narrated by Helen Lloyd , Antony Ferguson

White Hot (Unabridged) by Ilona Andrews narrated by Renee Raudman

The Day of the Duchess (Unabridged) by Sarah MacLean narrated by Justine Eyre
