Kelly (kellyvioletke) | 420 comments All Done!!! Completed Sept 26

Audio Encounters of the Third Kind Audiobook Challenge
Duration: July 1, 2013 through September 30, 2013


I'm changing my level!
Fifteen Minutes of Fame--Option 2(minimum of 4 from each genre)

Total Completed: 15/15


Contemporary: 7 of 7

1. Cold As Ice by Anne Stuart; Narrated by Natalie Gold~~2-new narrator~~7/2/13. Book: ★★★ Narrator: ★★★ Experience: B-narrator didn't add or detract from the book.

2. It Had to Be You by Jill Shalvis; Narrated by Annie Greene~~2-new narrator~~7/6/13. Book: ★★★½ Narrator: ★★★★ Experience: B-narrator was great but didn't make a so-so book any better.

3. Wicked Burn by Beth Kery; Narrated by Shirl Rae~~2-new author and narrator~~7/15/13. Book: ★★★ Narrator: ★★★ Experience: B-okay narration for an ok book.

4. Next of Kin by Sharon Sala; Narrated by Kathe Mazur~~2-new author and narrator~~8/3/13. Book: ★★★ Narrator: ★★★ Experience: B-narrator was good, but a little monotone in most parts of the book. The plot line was very similar to The Witness by Nora Roberts, but this book was not as good.

5. Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning; Narrated by Justine O. Keef~~2-new author and narrator~~8/22/13. Book: ★★★★ Narrator: ★★★★ Experience: A-Narrator was great! She has a laid back, easy-going approach to telling the story that was perfect with the tone of the book.

6. Rock Hard by Olivia Cunning; Narrated by Justine O. Keef~~3-favorite author and narrator~~8/30/13. Book: ★★★½ Narrator: ★★★★ Experience: A-Narrator was great again, but the book was about 2 hours too long. I'm all for the sexy times but there were about 3 or 4 sex scenes that were not necessary. It was almost as if the author was playing "let's see how many ways and public places I can write these two people having sex."

7. Catch of the Day by Kristan Higgins; Narrated by Xe Sands~~3-favorite author~~9/26/13. Book: ★★★½ Narration: ★★★★ Experience: A-better because of audio.

Historical:4 of 4

1. A Lady Awakened by Cecilia Grant; Narrated by Susan Ericksen~~3-favorite narrator~~7/11/13. Book: ★½ Narrator: ★★★★★ Experience: A&B Susan Ericksen was stellar as usual, but even she could not save this boring, unromantic book with it's cold, unlikeable heroine. I wanted to DNF it several times, but stuck it out. However, I will be returning it on Audible to get my credit back.

2. Love With a Scandalous Lord by Lorraine Heath; Narrated by Robin Rowan~~3-favorite author~~8/10/13. Book: ★★★★ Narration: ★★★★ Experience: A-I liked the book and would enjoy it in print, but the narrator was very good.

3. Never Seduce a Scot by Maya Banks; Narrated by Kristen Potter~~3-favorite author~~8/15/13. Book: ★★★★★ Narration: ★★★★★ Experience: A-Loved the story and the narration. Kristen Potter was terrific with all the voices and accents.

4. Fallen by Celeste Bradley; Narrated by Susan Ericksen~~3-favorite narrator~~9/24/13. Book: ★★★½ Narration: ★★★★★ Experience: A-I love Susan Ericksen's narrations!

Paranormal:4 of 4
