It’s the BEST time of the year!
Posted by: Mary Burkey

List of 2010′s top titles abound, so let’s take a look at the audiobook best-of-the-year buzz. Last week, Booklist named The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest as the year’s top audiobook title, however the rest of the Booklist Editor’s Choice list won’t be released until January. But never fear – there are still plenty of lists to peruse, as you do your last-minute holiday shopping!

Audible has a Best of 2010 Editor’s Picks list, with a plethora of adult titles in twelve categories. Audible editors have awarded the Audiobook of the Year honor to Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War by Karl Marlantes, and has also named Matterhorn narrator Bronson Pinchot as Audible’s first-ever Narrator of the Year. The Audible Customer Favorites list has ten top audiobooks selected by listener votes, with – no surprise – The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest as the winner.

AudioFile Magazine has over 80 titles – plenty of great listening for every age and genre preference – in their Best Audiobooks of 2010 list. AudioFile has also named over 60 narrators as the year’s Best Voices of 2010, noting even more titles as examples of each narrator’s work this year.

Library Journal’s Best Audiobooks 2010 features over 30 fiction and nonfiction titles for adults.

And if you’d like to see what’s popular in England, take a look at Sue Arnold’s Audiobook Choice reviews in the Guardian.

So that should give you enough to fill the stockings of all the audiobook fans in your life – plus a few for yourself!
