{GIVEAWAY} Dreams of Gods & Monsters AND Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor



The Daughter of Smoke and Bone audiobook has been one of my absolute, without a doubt, all-time favorite audiobook series ever.  Returning, once again to this audiobook, was such an amazing experience.  I can't really describe what it's like to become so familiar with a reader, that by the last book, it's almost comforting, like it was made to be read like this.  It's just something you have to experience for yourself.

The reader, Khristine Hvam does a wonderful job bringing this story to life.  She could be, at times, both light, fun, or emotional with Karou's character, and dark and creepy with some of the other characters.  I was especially CREEPED OUT with a certain creature who wants to "taste" Karou. *shivers*  Her voice for this . . . thing . . . was so perfect!  And perfectly chilling!  Khristine had distinct voices for all of the characters, making it easy to tell who is speaking, and she delivers those voices flawlessly.  Another great thing about listening to this series, in-particular, is that there are a lot of difficult names that Laini has used and I've heard that quite a few readers have gotten tripped up over them, and Khristine flies right through them, pronouncing them with ease and clarity. 

If you're a fan of audiobooks, this is definitely one you will want on your shelf.  If you've never listened, or your experience has been less than awesome, then you need to give this one a try!  Khristine and Laini will make you a believer!

  1. I have heard of this series and have been trying to get a copy of these two books. They are getting sold out at my local bookstore. Since I have been busy at work lately, I only could make the trip if I've happen to be in the neighborhood. Well, I'm going keep trying.

  7. I have listened to an audio book once and I wasn't a big fan, but maybe I just had the wrong audio book. I would like to try again with something better.
