All About: Audiobooks

So for the longest period of time I really disliked audiobooks. However, I'm mainly assuming this is because the audio of books I've read have been in school and it was an emotionless old man reading it and I was forced to either read along or get distracted from reading at my own pace by the emotionless yet loud old man.
But now I've discovered what true audiobooks are! They're really good storytellers reading you a great novel! I have yet to start an Audible trial, but I will once my new debit card comes in.

One of my most anticipated audiobooks is Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. This audiobook is voiced by a cast of over 20 people! They also have a soundboard and amazing sound effects throughout the whole thing! I'm super excited to get this so I can listen to it in my car!

Another reason I am now excited for audiobooks is because I laid down in bed, and I really wanted to read, but I didn't want to actually read. I just wanted to absorb the story, and I immediately thought of audiobooks.
Also, with the amount of driving I do, I could have an entire book audiobooked in a week just driving to and from school and work. That's amazing to me! Plus, with all the great books out there and the fantastic voice actors, I will actually pay attention! My mind won't wander like a lot of times in school.

I highly recommend audio books, and I haven't even listened to one yet. My current want-to list includes The Martian by Andy Weir and Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (even though I've already read the book).

Thanks for reading. I know it was short, but I've been sick today.
