Audio Book Month Giveaway!


If you read me here at Book Journey you are probably well aware that I love audio books.  Often, I listen to more audio than I read books because I can listen to audio while doing other things:



mow the lawn

work in the flower garden

sit on my deck

painting a room

Normally I make a big deal out of audio book month trying to talk my non audio book friends into trying an audio, offering up giveaways, narrator interviews….  Of course, I am searching to find a new normal so here we are the 17th of June and this is my first mention of audio book month.  When it was offered for me to give away a couple of audio books here at Book Journey I though I can do this much.


Those who wish me dead, Michael Koryta, Book Journey, audio book, audio book month, giveaway

When fourteen-year-old Jace Wilson witnesses a brutal murder, he’s plunged into a new life, issued a false identity, and hidden in a wilderness-skills program for troubled teens. The plan is to get Jace off the grid while police find the two killers. The result is the start of a nightmare.

The killers, known as the Blackwell Brothers, are slaughtering anyone who gets in their way in a methodical quest to reach him. Now all that remains between them and the boy are Ethan and Allison Serbin, who run the wilderness-survival program; Hannah Faber, who occupies a lonely fire lookout tower; and endless miles of desolate Montana mountains.

The clock is ticking, the mountains are burning, and those who wish Jace Wilson dead are no longer far behind.

  1. I’ve already read this one, so there is no need to enter me…but I will say that I love Michael Koryta’s work. Also, I will never understand how I folded laundry or mowed the lawn without an audiobook to listen to. I just finished listening to The Harvest Man by Alex Grecian and loved it.

  2. You know, Sheila, it was you who actually made me aware that there IS an audio book month ’cause I never would’ve known otherwise. I didn’t mark it on my calendar so I forgot, of course, ’til now lol June is a very busy time for me anyway since our annual conference is always in June (this past weekend) and I’m usually prepping in a big way. What I wish I could tell you is that I am an audio book convert, but the only ones I’ve liked were nonfiction. If I ever hit on a fiction one I like, it may help. It’ll probably be Jim Dale and Harry, at some point in my life. We’ll see!

  3. I would recommend Bad Monkey by Carl Hiaasen. I loved this book and couldn’t wait to finish it. It’s a mystery set in Florida and even though I’m not a huge fan of mysteries, this one kept my attention. I listened to it on audio while I was working as an aide in a school library and kept my brain engaged while I processed new books.

  4. i won my first ever audio book from you ….if I remember correctly it was the bride collector by ted dekker and it was awesome…the narration made it! I have a hard time with audio as my car trips tend to be short but I would love to try another one!
    as an aside…am glad to see your meanderings and reviews back in my inbox…I keep you in my prayers

  5. I am not entering but just wanted to day I love the Harry Potter audio books. I’m on the fourth one. Jim Dale has spoiled me as it’s hard to listen to others who don’t change their voices.

  6. Sheila, I have not listened to that many audio books (because I have too many other books perhaps) but I like the idea of listening to them while doing chores of some sort. Please enter me in this giveaway during audio book month. Thank you for hosting this! 🙂

  7. I would recommend the audio book “Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania” by Erik Larson. He also wrote Devil in the White City which is very good! I am fascinated with the Titanic and the stories behind the passengers that were on board and try to grab any book I can find on that subject, so when I had noticed that one of my favorite authors, Erik Larson had written a book about a famous ocean liner disaster I was on board, so to speak! The audio book really pulls you into the scene and you can imagine yourself actually there experiencing the lives of the passengers on board this ocean liner as well as in the German submarine that fired the torpedo. His research into the event was really interesting and gave me another perspective into that time period going into the war. I am not that into war stories but this one ended up capturing my attention as it focused mainly on the people that were on the boat and first hand witness accounts which I was interested in from my knowledge of the Titanic. It would probably be a great read too, but I drive a lot on my commute for my job so audio book was the way to go for me on this one.

  8. I recently have been re-enjoying the Curse Workers series by Holly Black on audio, read by Jesse Eisenberg. My 17-year-old and I are listening together whenever we’re in the car, and both loving the story.

    Also, I just did a reread of Rebecca by Daphne duMaurier on audio, and it was excellent.

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway, and I will continue to pray for you. (hugs)
