Awesome and Amazing Audiobooks

As a librarian serving both children and teens, I need to ingest as many titles as possible to keep up with everything that’s happening in literature for ages 0-18.  Consequently, I recently began listening to audiobooks during my commute to and from anywhere.

From experience, let me tell you: the quality of audiobooks varies greatly.  Just because a book is a good read does not necessarily mean that it will be a quality audiobook.   This is because, assuming the relative quality of the book itself, audiobooks depend entirely upon the reader of the book.  Sometimes audiobooks are read by the author—to great effect or not.   I highly recommend choosing titles that have been vetted by quality sources, like the Odyssey Award.

Check out these audiobooks & happy listening!
