This rarely ever happens to me, but right now there are four audio books that I am pining after. So here they are in alphabetical order:
The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan, read by Robin Sachs (Random House/Brilliance Audio) – I loved I, Lucifer, but I was on the fence about this book until I found out Robin Sashs was involved. Now I definitely feel the need to get around to it in the near future.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, read by Jason Issacs (Candlewick/Brillance Audio, September 27) – I’ve already read and reviewed the book, but it is amazing and one that I would read again in a heartbeat. And you cannot imagine the extent of my delight upon learning that Jason Issacs (aka Lucius Malfoy) will be reading it.
The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice, read by Simon Vance (Books on Tape) – I have read this book more than 20 times. Although I eventually came to be absolutely disgusted by the Vampire Chronicles as well as nearly everything else involving vampires, my love for this book and for Lestat remains untarnished. I’m still not sure how I would have survived high school without him. I don’t know if I want to re-read the book any time soon, but I am positive that I want to listen to Simon Vance read it to me.
