Audiobook News: Audible Essentials TEEN EDITION

Hello audiobook fans. Recently Audible made a special post showcasing 25 audiobooks that represent some of the best loved novels in the Young Adult genre. The titles include some well known classics to the recent uprising of the dystopian genre. As I looked over this aptly titled AUDIBLE ESSENTIALS: Teen Edition list I was pleased to note that I have listened to some of the selected novels while realizing that I have missed out on a few and I was also surprised that some did not make the cut. Please check out this list and see what you think? Then we can discuss.

click it and check the list of 25
Did you get to check out this interesting list? What did you think of it?  I know that I now want to listen to THE BOOK THIEF and A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN and hope to keep expanding my listening library. Did any audiobooks catch your interest and make you want to listen to them straight away?

I was surprised that none of the Cassandra Clare novels made the list because her books are wonderful and the audiobook versions are entertaining and great to listen to. I also think that I HUNT KILLERS by Barry Lyga is amaze balls crazy creepy good. While Libba Bray's BEAUTY QUEENS is the stuff that audiobook magic is made of. What audiobook do you believe would have made the list? I would like to know.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
