Ten Books To Read If You're in the Mood for Teen Audiobooks

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. Today's topic is Top Ten Books To Read If You're in the Mood For...and I chose YA audiobooks because I was recently thinking I should do a list of my favorites. So here they are!

1. His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman, narrated by Philip Pullman and a full cast
This was one of the first audiobooks I ever listened to, perhaps my very first teen audiobook.

2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, narrated by Kate Rudd

3. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart, narrated by Tanya Eby Sirois

4. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, narrated by Rebecca Lowman and Sunil Malhotra
Rebecca Lowman is always and forever my favorite audiobook narrator, but Sunil Malhotra just paired perfectly with her in this book.

5. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick, narrated by Noah Galvin

6. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, narrated by Michael Crouch

7. The Selection series by Kiera Cass, narrated by Amy Rubinate
The fourth in the series, The Heir, is narrated by Brittany Pressley, who is also very good.

8. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black, narrated by Christina Lakin

9. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood, narrated by Nicole Sudhaus
I loved this so much I couldn't wait for the next book in the series to come out, and I was crushed to learn that they weren't making audiobooks of the rest of the series.

10. In Darkness by Nick Lake, narrated by Benjamin L. Darcie
This one takes place in Haiti, and although I'm not an expert on accents I'd say he does it perfectly.

I loved all of these books, but the expertly read audiobooks made them stand out even more. I'm a little surprised to look at my list and see that there are no repeats of narrators. Perhaps I have more favorite narrators than I thought!

Do you have any favorite teen audiobooks? I'm always looking for more suggestions!
