JIAM: The Geeky Blogger Talks About the Different Types of Narration

Posted June 19, 2017 by Jennifer in Blogger Guest Post, JIAM | 14 Comments

  Different Types of Narration (and a few of my Faves)     Hi Guys! It is Felicia The Geeky Blogger here talking about Audiobooks for June is Audiobook Month. I was trying to come up with a topic that I haven’t discussed before (that is really hard for a gal that has been talking about audiobooks forever) and finally realized that I have never talked about Narration Types. So here we go…. There are 4 main narration types: Single Narration Dual Narration Duet Narration Full Cast Narration I believe they each have their place and if done well then can make a book sparkle. I, of course have my favorite styles but want to give samples of each one. I have picked from some […]


Audio Review: Come Sundown by Nora Roberts

Audio Review: Come Sundown by Nora Roberts

    I listened to this story without reading the book blurb and highly recommend doing it this way as I think too much is revealed in the setup. It’s enough to know that this story involves the Bodine family of Western Montana, which includes four generations of women. The main character is Bodine Longbow, the youngest who runs the family’s high-end resort. Her older brother runs the adjacent family ranch. Her childhood crush, Callen (Cal) Skinner returns back to the area following a stint in Hollywood and begins working for the family.   The span of the story begins in 1991 and transitions to the present day for the first half of the book. It begins with the 1991 disappearance of Alice Bodine, Bodine’s […]

          I have enjoyed this author for many, many years. I was happy to briefly meet her at RT in Atlanta this May. Some of her earlier romantic suspense books, from the 1990s,  were just a touch paranormal, with what is truly my favorite kind, extraordinary skills of the mind. It is magic but in a more possible way, possibly real. The people in these thrilling stories were related loosely with someone knowing someone else. I truly loved these stories with each having a romance and a strong women featured.   I cannot believe none of this author’s books have been reviewed here. But the stores above are older, before the blogging times, and lately other than Kendra, it has been primarily […]

JIAM: Sophia’s Aha Moments in Audio Listening

Posted June 16, 2017 by Jennifer in Blogger Guest Post | 11 Comments

    My Aha Moments In Audio Listening   My first listening experience with audio books was in August of 2014.  Although, come to think on it… it could be argued that it started when I was a child of six or seven sitting on the floor of my room engrossed in a book on a record.  “When you hear the chimes, please turn the page…” But yes, 2014, I chose Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and narrated by the incomparable Davina Porter.  It took me nearly three months to listen to all 32 hours and 43 minutes of the beast.  Incidentally, that’s the one to snag if you want to get your free Audible trial credit’s worth.  Haha!  But at that point, I thought, wow, […]

    Brady Connors recently returned to Hope after a self-imposed hiatus following his brother’s tragic death. He and bakery owner Megan Lee were sort of thrown together by well-meaning friends at a couple of events but nothing developed. Brady’s not interested in any kind of meaningful relationship, including close friendships, but Megan’s sunny disposition and easy personality makes it tough to keep his distance. It also helps that she serves up the best morning coffee and sweets at her bakery.   This is one of those stories where you just sit back and enjoy listening to a fairly uncomplicated relationship develop slowly and naturally. You know there will come a point when Brady’s wall around his emotional compartments will reach a meltdown climax but […]

Audio: How To Travel the World on $50 A Day by Matt Kepnes #JIAM

  I love to travel and this audio is non-fiction on how to do so at lower costs. It also seems timed right since summer is a big travel season.  It includes an introduction and three parts. Part One deals with planning your trip. Part Two is on the road expenses such as accommodations, food, transportation and activities. Part Three is regional information ( on the same things as Part Two)  including: Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, Central America, South America, China, India and Japan. The introduction is short and basically contains a list of questions which are answered later and a pep talk for those who are too afraid or think they don’t have the money to travel. I found this boring since […]


Dirty by Kylie Scott + Narrator Interview with Andi Arndt

Dirty by Kylie Scott + Narrator Interview with Andi Arndt

Posted June 14, 2017 by Jennifer in Book Review, Narrator Interviews | 5 Comments

    NARRATOR INTERVIEW     First, congrats to Andi for winning 2017 Audie award for her narration on Dirty in the Romance category. Dirty is my first Kylie Scott novel and it was a good experience. I have her Flesh series on audio so that will most likely be my next listen. After listening to Dirty I’ll have to check out Scott’s Stage Dive series. Dirty was a fun listen while doing yard work, too bad I wasn’t laying by a pool instead of mowing. Any story that starts off where the heroine is a run away bridge after finding out the groom to be is gay and the bride is the last to know is going have some drama. But when side bride […]


Blog tour: Dating-ish by Penny Reid

Blog tour: Dating-ish by Penny Reid

Posted June 13, 2017 by Anne in Blog Tour, Book Review | 0 Comments

  Penny Reid is one of my favorite authors, in the top 5,  and nearly everything of hers I read is a 5 star book. She has included so many things I love like friends knitting and cooking, and cultural things like Harry Potter and Charlie Hunnam.  She is addictive. I have such respect for her work. So what about Dating-ish?  I had trouble starting this one; I didn’t like Matt. At 38%, I wasn’t sure I was going to like him. Ugh, coconut.  I LOVE Marie. She, like Penny’s books, is smart and vulnerable and honest. It amazes me how strong these women are to be so authentic.  As a total computer nerd, things like AI and robots are fascinating to me. Plus, I […]
