June is Audiobook Month Giveaway Hop!


Hi all! We've only just finished one giveaway and I have another ready for you! Things are getting cuh-ray-zee down here at Slush Sleuth. Many of us are honoring JIAM by participating in the Audiobook Hop hosted by the lovely folks down at Reading Teen!

I am a BIG audiobook enthusiast; 15 of the 42 books I've finished in 2012 were audio. For the many of you out there who have to commute to classes or work, audiobooks are a great way to pass the time. They help me get through mundane tasks like washing dishes and ironing. Not to mention, they provide an awesome incentive to work out. (i.e. *slaps hand* No, Kelsey! You cannot find out what happens next in X adventure or which boy Jane Doe choses unless you run while you listen!) It works surprisingly well...

Basically, if you are an audiobook consumer you can do all those things that suck in life, but distract yourself with stories while you do!

So, have I sold you yet? I hope so because it'd be a shame to miss out on the chance to win an audiobook of your choice from Audible.com! Just fill out the rafflecopter form below to enter.

You are welcome to look through their extensive library and chose whatever you want, but for those of you who want some suggestions, here are a few I listened to this year that loved both the story and narration:

1. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand, Narrated by Samantha Quan
2. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith, Narrated by Casey Halloway
3. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han, Narrated by Jessica Almasy
4. Gilt by Katherine Longshore, Narrated by Jennifer Ikeda
(I'm also totally happy to answer any questions you have about other books I've listened to!)

Happy JIAM, and may the odds be ever in your favor!

  14. I too LOVE audiobooks. I listen to them when driving, washing dishes, folding laundry, walking the dog, or any other mundane task which occupies my hands but not much of my brain. I've never checked out Audible. I borrow audiobooks from my local library, but I've exhausted their YA section and they aren't getting anything new in thanks to budget cuts. Awesome giveaway. Thanks!
