I’m pleased to announce that my reading dry spell is over. In fact, I found a new favorite author. Although I’m not entirely happy that I stayed up to finish reading Molly Harper’s How to Run Naked With a Werewolf and only got about four hours of sleep before my alarm went off.
This fabulous book had me diving to my Kindle to download the rest of the werewolf series and the first book in her vampire Jane Jameson series. Within two and a half days, I finished the werewolf books and started the vampire one.
I was in the middle of the second page of Nice Girls Don’t Book 1 when I frowned. I’d read this story before. I remembered this scene. I began to get pissed that I paid eight bucks for a book I must have listened to before on my iPod, since I knew the physical book wasn’t on my kindle or on my overstuffed “real” books bookcase. Well, it was late, and was currently out of fundage to buy the next book in the series, so I kept on reading. By chapter two, I learned that I actually hadn’t read this one before. Oh, I started it, but I never finished.
This happens a lot when I listen to audiobooks. The tone and voice of the speaker turns me off and I stop listening because I’m unable to get into the story. Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs is a great book and I’m glad I didn’t miss it.
So how many other great books have I missed because of the speaker’s voice?
What about you? Have you ever turned off an audiobook because you couldn’t get into the story?
