So, I don’t typically read romance. But I do listen to audiobooks quite often on account of the fact that I enjoy getting more reading done during the times when I have to take care of those pesky adult responsibilities that I simply can’t ignore (cleaning is a big one). But when I review an audiobook, I’m really just reviewing the content of the book and not the audio reader.
Eline at Lovely Audiobooks, however, reviews everything in its entirety which I find quite refreshing and intriguing. It’s definitely great to hear a reader’s take on the voice actor who’s reading the book to them. I had an experience recently where I could’t listen to an audiobook because the voice was too annoying to me—Alexandra Braken’s The Darkest Minds—and while that doesn’t happen often for me, it could be interesting to note in a review which I had initially not intended to do. There’s a strong chance I still won’t, however it is wonderful to know there are blogs dedicated to reviewing and discussing person giving voice to the story. We definitely don’t give these people enough credit, I think.
As for Lovely Audiobooks, I certainly do love the way she reviews and had a blast reading them. For now, definitely check out her blog and here’s an excerpt from one of her reviews!
“I could honestly have Jeremy York in my ear all day. This audiobook was really good fun on every level. You might or might not know that I always listen with the critical ear of a feminist, so…”
