The 2021 Audie Awards, presented to “the very best in spoken-word entertainment” were presented earlier this month.
We own audio versions of several of the audiobooks nominated for the top honor, including More Myself by Alicia Keys, The Mountain Sing by Nguyen Phan Que Mai, and We’re Better Than This by Elijah Cummings. A few of my favorite listens from the last year were also nominated in various categories. Wow, No Thank You by Samantha Irby is a hilarious essay collection (she reads it herself), and The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune (read by Daniel Henning) is a light and sweet fantastical romance. I’ve heard great things about both The Midnight Library by Matt Haig (read by Carey Mulligan), and Deacon King Kong by James McBride (read by Dominic Hoffman.) Both were nominated for Audie Awards, so I’ve also moved them from my “To-Read” list to my Libby (Overdrive) eAudio list!
Listening to an audiobook is a great way to make your morning walk, afternoon gardening, or nightly dishwashing a lot more enjoyable, and you’re sure to find something great on the list of Audie Award honorees. Visit this link to find a full list of honored audiobooks in our collection.
