Musing Monday is hosted over at Should Be Reading.

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!


If you listen to Audio books can the reader make it or break it for you? That is my muse this week because I have just started listening to audiobooks and I am finding that my third one I am listening too is not nearly as enjoyable as the first ones. I think that it is the reader and I just do not like his style of reading the book, is that a thing? Or am I just being fussy?

    Audibooks are break deal for me regardless of the reader. I really fall asleep after first five minutes. Tried this with three different books. *sigh* It could have saved a lot of time, if I’d have enjoyed listening too.

    I think the narrator can ABSOLUTELY make or break an audiobook! I listened to one recently where the female narrator had such a monotone–it was really off-putting. Luckily the plot was enough to keep me going–but I’m really glad that it wasn’t the first audiobook I tried.

  3. I listened to a mystery by a writer I just loved. It was part of a series and I had listened to others and really liked them. This one had a different person doing the recording and I really did not like how he sounded. It changed my enjoyment of the audio book. Here is my post: Mixed Book Bag

  4. The narrator definitely makes a huge difference for me. I don’t try a lot of audio books for that reason. Right now, I’m listening to Navigating Early by Clare Vanderpool in my car. Fabulous narrator. Not sure if you can find other books by the same narrator, but I’m going to try.

    I can’t really focus on audio books, so I don’t know.

    I’ve never been a huge fan of audio books because the pace is always too slow. I’m a fast reader normally, and I get impatient. But I definitely agree about the narrator. Sometimes you spend more time focusing on their voice than on the story.
