#JIAM – Audies Winner – Romance

24 Jun

audies 2014
hey everyone! well, its day 24 of #JIAM (June is Audiobook Month) – unfortunately like the goof I am, my post was supposed to go up yesterday and I wrote the wrong date in my calender – hopefully, everyone will forgive me (pretty please!)

I’m an admitted audiobook junkie, having had a commute to work over the last few years that is anywhere from 2-3 hours (even though its only about 50 miles), I’ve become well-acquainted with audiobooks. This was my second year of participating in the Armchair Audies, where we attempt to listen to all the books nominated in the various categories for the Audies and it was my second year of listening to the romance category.

the longest rideThe winner for the romance category this year was The Longest Ride – Nicholas Sparks – you can read my review HERE. I was impressed by the narration by both January LaVoy and Ron McLarty. It was the best nominee out of the ones in the category and I was glad to see it win (although, I know lots of strict romance readers disagree – but hey, disagreement is the spice of life).

Hachette Audio has gracious decided to offer up a copy of The Longest Ride to one lucky person who comments below. I’ll draw the winner at random on July 1 (so you have about 6 days to go). Simply answer the following question:

What is your favorite romance book? (it can be an audiobook or print – since I know some of my favorites are still not available in audio).

    My favorite romance, fantasy, scifi, and historical fiction novel all rolled into one is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander…actually the entire series.

      A person after my own heart! I can’t wait for the TV show but I’m trying to hold off on MOBY

    the 1970 novel “love story” – I read it in the late 70’s after graduating high school. I think I’m going to re-read it this summer and see how I feel today. Thanks for the chance to win I haven’t read or listened to this novel yet. I wonder how long before this is made into a movie

      Haven’t read that – but was the movie based on it?

      I figure a year or so – I’m normally not a fan of Sparks books/movies but I think this one would work – if they get the right people

      I remember reading Love Story and watching the movie as a teenager. For those of us who weren’t already in love with Ryan O’Neal….this movie ‘sealed the deal’.

    My favorite romance has been His Captive Bride by Shelly Thacker. The story was amazing and I just love the narrator. She makes the book come alive! (I also loved His Forbidden Touch, same author and narrator). Thanks for the giveaway!
