It's time to nominate audiobooks four our November group listen!

There are only a few rules:

Books chosen for an HA group read or listen in the last 6 months are disqualified!

Authors are not allowed to nominate their own books.

That's it! The more nominations an audio gets, the more likely it is to make it to the final polls. This nomination thread will be open until Sunday, 10.22.17.

Nicholas Paschall | 3 comments Salem's Lot or Slasher Sam. One from a big name, one from a smaller name. Either one would be cool.


message 9: by Greg (new)

Greg | 360 comments I hear you Tasha. It's been several years since my last Saul novel though and I heard decent things so I figured I'd throw it a nod. As for Like Death that one I remember really enjoying and want to give another go round.

the right hand of evil in july of this year.


message 12: by Greg (new)

Greg | 360 comments Nah the last I read of his was Nightshade many years ago. But I had read a few of his others in short succession and realized a lot are good but too similar. I'm personally not to keen on another King or Hill. Both excellent authors but I've met my annual quota. 😄

Melissa (melissa52572) | 79 comments Audiobook horror fans would enjoy The Narrows by Ronald Malfi and Brother by Ania Ahlborn .


message 15: by Greg (new)

Greg | 360 comments Both of those are great suggestions Melissa.


message 16: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (melissa52572) | 79 comments Oh, and I just saw that Ronald Malfi's new December Park by Ronald Malfi is out on audio. I'll nominate that since I haven't read/listened yet.

I have the audiobook of Occultation and Other Stories and the reader drove me nuts, I ended up buying the book and reading it he bugged me so much. It's a great collection but I thought the reader was not a good fit for most of those stories.


message 20: by Brandon (new)

Brandon Petry (bpetry) | 22 comments I just finished Hasty for the Dark: Selected Horrors by Adam Nevill and really enjoyed it. It's a collection of short stories but they were all very good.

That's a real bummer when the story or stories is/are great but the narrator is not.
