Summer is here and many of us will be traveling. Nothing makes me happier on a long drive than a good audiobook. Personally, I like to grab a few from the library shelf in case I don’t like the narrator’s voice!
Even if you aren’t traveling this summer, try listening to a good book by a city pool for a much needed escape. Check out a few of our most popular audiobooks for teens below. The Library has audiobooks available on CD, MP3 Playaway, and for download on Overdrive and OneClick.
Libba Bray’s self narrated “Beauty Queens” has all the makings of a perfect road trip audiobook! In the story, a plane full of beauty queens on the way to the Miss Teen Dream Pageant crashes on a desert island. With little food, water and practically no eyeliner who will survive?
Read the books? Seen the movie? Now it’s time to listen to the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
Tina Fey’s self narrated memoir is one of my personal favorites. Last year, during a road trip, I listened to Bossypants and loved every second of it. From her time as a high school actor in Upper Darby, PA to portraying and meeting Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, you will feel like you are sitting with a friend.
If you loved reading Harry Potter and watching the movies then you should try listening to it too! Best of all, it is really easy to get a copy of Harry Potter since we have lots of copies of the series. They are probably sitting on your local library’s shelf right now.
Now it’s your turn to share! What’s your favorite audiobook?
