TTT: Audio Freebie

I don't post that many TTT these days, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to talk audio. I was so torn between doing top audiobook vs top favorite songs, that I decided to split it up and do six and six. So without further ado, here are my top six audiobooks, and my top six all-time favorite songs.

Audiobooks:

862267 12090316 22529254
9843176 22180934 20827363

Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
I've listened to the whole series three times over the years (maybe even four--I've been trying to remember). I love Jim Dale's narration and love listening to these books more than reading them. 
Bossypantsby Tina Fey
Tina Fey is my spirit animal. I have listening to this audio no less than five times and it just never, ever gets old. I adore this audiobook.
Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I'm currently listening to this (for the second time). I love the three narrators and their English accents. 
Shit My Dad Says by Justin Halpern
Oh, this book, it cracks me up. I don't plan on ever being a parent, but this is definitely the kind I would be if I was. 
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
I never would have gotten through this book if it wasn't for the audio. I love the Aussie accent of the narrator.
Yes, Please by Amy Poehler
While I don't love this one as much as Bossypants, it is also a great audiobook read by the incomparable Amy Poehler. 

Songs:

 

Into the Mystic by Van Morrison
"I want to rock your gypsy soul." LOVE.




Lost Cause by Beck
"I'm tired of fighting. Tired of fighting. Fighting for a lost cause."




Halah by Mazzy Star
I could listen to Hope Sandoval sing the phone book. "Before I close the door, I need to, hear you say good-bye. Baby, won't you change your mind." I can clearly remember the first time I heard this song. I was driving back to town after the senior camp-out the day before graduation. The sun was coming up and I was hangover and exhausted, but oh-so-content with life, and after spending the entirety of my high school career in love with a boy who was sometimes my boyfriend (but most often not), this song spoke to me in a way I cannot even explain. 




Some Devil by Dave Matthews
"I wish I was dead and you were breathing, just so that you could know. You said always and forever. And I believed you, Baby. You said always and forever. It's such a long and lonely time." This song will be played at my funeral. 




Gold Dust Woman by Fleetwood Mac
Dude. Stevie Nicks's voice is incomparable. "Did she make you cry? Make you break down. Shatter your illusion of love. And is it over now? Do you know how to pick up the pieces and go home" 




Please, Please, Please by The Smiths
This is probably on every mixed CD I've ever made (it's the perfect filler song at 2 mins long). "Please, please, please. Let me, let me, let me. Let me get what I want this time." So much need. I adore his voice so much. 

That's it for me. What did you do for your audio freebie? Link me up!

  1. Yes to this post! I also loved Tina's and Amy's audiobooks. So much fun to hear them read it. Fleetwood Mac could read me the phonebook and I'd fall in love : )

  3. I haven't "read" a Harry Potter book since I discovered the audiobooks. They are just so much better.

  4. I love the accent of the narrator for Big Little Lies, too! I especially like it when she does the child's voice with an Australian accent. Totes cute!

  5. Ughhh I love Stevie Nicks so much. Also I clearly need to read/listen to Girl on the Train because everyone is raving about it. Great TTT!

  6. Love Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks. And I think Big Little Lies with all the sniping and Yes Please would be awesome on audio.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
