In Episode 3, I’m back to my regular format with Susie from the blog Novel Visits (one of my top recommendation sources!). Susie recently fell in love with audiobooks and, unlike me, listens to fiction on audio. Join us for her fiction audiobook recommendations!


  • Why listening to audiobooks is not cheating.
  • The sign you’re listening to a great audiobook.
  • The one book that really turned Susie on to audiobooks.
  • Susie’s favorite audiobook narrators (Julia Whelan, Cassandra Campbell, Therese Plummer).
  • Sarah’s all-time favorite audiobook (it’s a miracle…I am actually able to pick just one!).
  • Susie’s favorite apps to listen to audiobooks.
  • Sarah’s take on the problem with thrillers these days.

I’ve loved reading for as long as I can remember. Some of my fondest childhood memories involve long afternoons at the library and then reading late into the night. More than ten years ago, I began journaling about the books I read and turned that passion into writing about books. My first forays were as a guest reviewer on a friend’s blog, but I soon realized I wanted to be reviewing and talking about books on a blog of my own. From there, Novel Visits was born. That was in 2016 and, though the learning curve was steep, I love being a part of the book community. Novel Visits focuses on new novel reviews (print and audio), previews of upcoming releases, and musings on all things bookish.
