This is a new feature I developed where each month we will look at our favorite – the best – series in a genre or topic.

The topic here, by my definition,  is  series with great audiobook narration.   These are the ones which came to mind.  I enjoyed some more than others.   The team had to help me find some of these.

Since I haven’t read everything, it’s a subset of the possibilities.  I’m sure I am forgetting some great authors. There are also plenty of authors I have yet to read. Please share your favorites with me in the comments, also.

My favorite Audiobook  series are (in no particular order):

    • Jim Dale is amazing. There are too many great options for this feature but I choose 6 each year with slightly different ideas in mind. Harry Dresden series is also an always audio auto-buy also. Fantasy is my favorite genre on audio, maybe because I don’t have to figure out how to pronounce things. lol

  1. I enjoy the Harry Potter series in Audio. That is how I was introduced to the series. Never read the books only listen. We used to have long car rides to work and when we drove to visit family we would put the books on.
    Now, my favorites to listen too are: Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, Dragon Kin series by G.A. Aiken, anything by Ilona Andrews is amazing in audio. ^_^

  2. Anne

    My two favorite audio series are Anne Bishop’s The Others and Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson series. Only listened to two so far, but Louise Penny’s Three Pines series makes the top 9 list now.

      • Anne

        Both, if the story is boring or unappealing to me, the voice performance (and for my favs, it is a performance not a narration) alone wouldn’t get me to listen. I love Susan Erickson too. She does the In Death series by Robb and I haven’t listened to a couple of the later ones because I thought the stories really were awful. I also haven’t listened to her work on Patricia Cornwell’s Kate something or other series which I gave up after book 6 or 7 because the characters were so incredibly unlikeable.

        • Yes both. I do have series I can’t listen to on audio because the narrator is another character in my head. Susan Erickson to me is VI Warshawski and sounds too old to be Eve Dallas . Also Lorelei King is Charley Davidson to me so I can’t listen to her on the Mercy Thompson series (I hear her as too snarky for Mercy). This is obviously silly as they are both amazing narrators but it is in my head that way. So I read Eve Dallas and Mercy Thompson instead of listening on audio.

    Love the Harry Potter audios – wonderful family listen on road trips.

  4. I’ve only listened to one book from the Murderbot series, and I liked it. I haven’t listened to any of the others. Some of my favorite audiobook series are Virgin River with Therese Plummer narrating. Mercy Thompson & Alpha & Omega, of course! Kate Daniels, The Rockton series by Kelley Armstrong, also narrated by Therese Plummer.

  5. Janie McGaugh

    Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series – great series and so well narrated.

  6. Davina Porter is fantastic for sure. I loved the narration of The Raven Boys series by Maggie Stiefvater. Tim Gerard Reynolds from the Riyria Chronicles is also one of my all time favorites.

  7. Yay! So excited to see the Rebels & Redcoats series. I of course love the Murderbot series and HP. Fantastic choices. I would add any and all of Dianne Duvall and Ilona Andrews. Ooo and the Iron Druid Chronicles.
