Top 5 Favorite Audiobooks


  1. What If? by Randall Munroe, narrated by Wil Wheaton
  2. Second Hand Curses by Drew Hayes, narrated by Scott Aiello, Marc Vietor, and Tavia Gilbert
  3. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, narrated by Jim Dale
  4. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, narrated by Wil Wheaton
  5. The Fire’s Stone by Tanya Huff, narrated by Bill Hensel

Wil Wheaton and Jim Dale are amazing narrators and I could listen to them all day! Second Hand Curses was written to be an audiobook and its brilliant.  The Fire’s Stone is just an awesome story that I just happened to listen to on Audiobook.

Have you read any of these? Did you listen to them on Audiobook or physically read them? Would they have made your list? What is your favorite Audiobook?

  1. I really want to reread Harry Potter on audio!
    Ready player one was a good audio book, didn’t make it to my list though 😦

  2. I listened to What If? on audio, and I agree that it was awesome! I’ve also heard Wil Wheaton narrate Scalzi’s Redshirts, and that was also fun. And I agree about Jim Dale! In addition to the Harry Potter series, I listened to him narrate The Night Circus, and it seemed a perfect fit.

    I don’t need to add to your comments about Second Hand Curses at all. That is an awesome audiobook, and I love it. More people need to listen to it so they can love it, too.

    1. Ready Player One was also read by Wil Wheaton and I love him as a narrator! I will have to check out Scalzi’s Redshirts 😀 I listened to Jim Dale narrate The Night Circus too, and while I thought he did a phenomenal job, I got confused by the timeline and probably would have been better off physically reading that one. And Yes! More people need to listen to Second Hand Curses!!!!!


      1. If I ever re-read Ready Player One, I will listen to the audiobook. (Because Wil Wheaton.) I was a bit indifferent toward the book, though, so it’s not a given thing. But he narrates a lot of Scalzi’s work it seems, so I’m planning to listen to more of those. He’s a great sci-fi narrator. 😀 I had the same problem with the Night Circus on audio! I thought it was just me, because no one else seemed to get confused. I did buy a physical copy of it, though, so that when I re-read it hopefully I can keep track of the timeline better.

  3. I am on a mission to get through an audiobook by the end of the year. I’ve been wanting to try audiobooks for ages, but I always get so distracted. Maybe I haven’t found the right title yet and with Will Wheaton narrating Ready Player One I might try that one.

    1. I hope you like whatever book you choose!! When do you try to listen to them? That can be a big influence too. Like I can listen to them while I am driving or coloring, but I can’t listen to them if I have to do anything I need to focus one. (That sounds bad, I do focus on driving, but its a different kind of focus 😂 )

  4. I’ve only listened to Harry Potter out of these (and this reminds me, I never did get around to #6 and #7 on audio — must fix that ASAP!). Wil Wheaton is a fantastic audiobook narrator — he does a bunch of John Scalzi’s novels, and he makes them so much fun to listen to!
