Great Reads That Became Great Listens

Sometimes I appreciate audiobooks more than other times. But some books I enjoy even more in audiobook format because the narrators do such a fantastic job.
I recently listened to Kim Harrison's newest, American Demon, read by Marguerite Gavin. Not only can Gavin convincingly speak as a different ages and genders, but she can also portray the different species with amazing efficiency. I've long been a fan of the Hollows series--an urban fantasy about a local witch who works with local law enforcement to stop supernatural threats--and her narration makes me want to reread the entire series, this time in audio.
One of my first audiobooks was the House of Night series. My favorite narrator was Caitlin Davies, whose portrayals of the main characters sounds even better than I imagined!
Bahni Turpin reads So You Want to Talk About Race--Ijeoma Oluo's book of advice on how to approach several subtopics of race in America--with such passion, you can't help but listen. I can't imagine a better pairing of author and narrator, especially to talk about and teach on a topic we still need to hear so much about.
