top ten tuesday: all about audio

This week's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is All About Audio, and it's totally open—basically, participants can take it in whatever direction they want. So I'm going to list nine of my favorite audiobooks and podcasts ... because I'm having trouble coming up with ten, and it's already past my bedtime!


As You Wish by Cary Elwes. I cannot recommend this highly enough for fans of The Princess Bride! Cary Elwes reads the book, and several cast members make appearances, making the audio version so incredibly fun!

The Gifting series by K.E. Ganshert. I've listened to both The Gifting and The Awakening, and I'm currently listening to The Gathering (it's what I listen to when I'm mowing, and it makes mowing semi-tolerable). Narrator Heather Masters does a fabulous job, and Ganshert's plot is phenomenal! My reviews: The Gifting (4-1/2 stars), The Awakening (5 stars).


Pop Culture Happy Hour. This is my go-to podcast. I look forward to Friday mornings because I know there will be a new episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour to listen to while I get ready for work. Linda Holmes and the PCHH gang discuss books, movies, TV, and all variety of entertainment. Even when they discuss a topic I don't think I'd be interested in, I enjoy the show.

Quick to Listen. I've just recently begun listening to this Christianity Today podcast. It tackles a variety of topics like politics, pop culture, sports, to name a few.

The Popcast. I've been listening to Knox and Jamie since their Bachelor recapping days. Sometimes they get a little mean for my taste, but I usually love listening to their take on all things pop culture. And I can't wait to hear their take on #BrexPitt.

Ask Me Another. This competitive trivia show is so much fun to play along with!

Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan. Of all the podcasts, I have the longest relationship with this one—I was listening to Ryan McGee and Maureen Ryan back when they did a Lost podcast. Now they talk all things TV, and while I don't listen to every episode, I enjoy every one that I do listen to.

Have you listened to any of these audiobooks (or read the books) or podcasts? Have a recommendation for me? Let me know, and check out the other lists in the linkup.

  1. I don't listen to any audio books to be honest - or podcasts. But finished Katie's YA dystopian is high on my MUST list. I just wish I'd quite forgetting! ;)

    1. I just very recently started listening to audio books--but only ones I can get free or on sale! I've been listening to The Gathering for like three months because I only listen when I'm mowing, and the whole thing is around 12 hours long! That's what I DON'T like about audio books--I can read so much faster than it can be read to me!

  2. Thank you for listening Becky! (Knox and) Jamie
