When life's kicking your butt, how about a theme song? July audiobook love!

Let's switch things up and talk audiobooks because I freaking love them! Rather, I love the narrators. So here are a couple of my absolute-I'll-follow-you-through-any-story-favorites starting with ...

James Marsters reading as Harry Dresden in Jim Butcher's Dresden Files. If you're thinking the name James Marsters sounds familiar, it sure does! He's Spike from Buffy! Harry looks and acts nothing like Spike and the narration is so spectacular that I never confuse the two. Harry doesn't suddenly appear in my head as a platinum blond with an accent, fangs, and a near dying need for self-preservation. Harry Dresden is a wizard who works as a P.I. On the side he saves humankind over and over from some seriously scary supernatural baddies. If you haven't given this series a shot yet, get on it.

Kirsten Porter reading as a number of awesome heroines from back in the fictional day. I first heard her narrating for Maya Banks in Never Seduce a Scot. I followed her through all of Banks's historical romances and then discovered Joanna Bourne and her Spymaster series. If Porter is reading, you are sure to fall deep into the story and wish everyone understood if the earbuds are in, do not talk to me.

Happy July people. I hope it's filled with summer respite and ice cream.


  1. Audio books, huh? I haven't heard many, honestly I've only heard Neil Gaiman's and those narrated by himself. I freaking loved him and his beautiful voice and his amazing stories.

    Do try one, Robyn!

    Happy July to you too, let's get back on swimming, right?

    1. I'll have to try his audio books for sure. I haven't ready anything by him yet.

      There's probably an expiration date for replying to comments. Dang it. I hope you had a wonderful summer!
