May 5th will mark three years for the Speaking of Audiobooks column. What started as a mere opportunity to give my opinion that audiobooks are All About the Narrator, rapidly grew to a twice-monthly feature here at All About Romance. We discovered there was a lot of enthusiasm for romance audio and that listeners were raring to talk about their best romance finds, their worst audio experiences, and everything in between.
Initially my audio reviews were so short that I called them Mini-Reviews and the majority of reviews within the column were mine. In January 2011, avid listeners Brenda and Melinda started writing reviews for Speaking of Audiobooks followed by LinnieGayl and Kaetrin in March and Diana in May. Since these ladies all know romance audio inside out and enjoy talking about it, I don’t think the term mini-review applies to our review style these days. Many thanks to these ladies for their contributions.
I’m very pleased to announce that Carrie is joining our audio review team today. It’s likely that you have seen Carrie around either here in our discussion area or at our Speaking of Audiobooks Goodreads group. Her first review, Forbidden by Suzanne Brockmann, is below. Welcome, Carrie!
