#30DaysOfThanks2014 Day 24: Book of Secrets and Tanya Eby

Posted November 24, 2014 by Felicia S in Month of Thanks / 16 Comments


Hi Y’all! It is November and I am bringing back #30DaysOfThanks for Year 3 aka #30DaysOfThanks2014. I had so much fun doing this last 2 years that I thought I would recycle the program again this year.

Blogger: Book of Secrets

What can I say about Diana: Another soul sister! We bond of cozy mysteries, crafts, and the love of all things fun.Β  She is another audiobook lover and someone who I truly hope to meet in person some time in the future. Please go give her some love (she is on a break for the month of November so visit her in December)

Book of Secrets


Narrator: Tanya Eby

Some of the Books I have listened to narrated by her:

  • Fool’s Gold by Susan Mallery (I will only listen to these on audio–brilliantly done)
  • Rizzoli and Isles by Tess Gerritsen
  • The Shadow Tracer by Meg Gardiner

Some of the Books on my wishlist:

  • Die Again by Tess Gerritsen (I have the rest of the series and counting down to 12/30 for this one)
  • Alliance Vampires series by Heather Graham
  • Friday Harbor series by Lisa Kleypas


This year Fantasy is More Fun & Because Reading are doing a Month of Giving Thanks giving you a chance to participate. You should take them up on the opportunity!

NOTE: This year I switched it up a bit for the first 12 days: I will highlight one book from 2014 that really stuck with me (each book scored a 4.75 or 5 from me), one narrator that landed on my must listen list, and one blogger that I am thankful for! For days 13 to 30 I will highlight either 2 bloggers and 1 narrator OR 2 narrators and 1 blogger. These are not in any particular order and by no means is 30 going to cover everyone that I love. In fact this year in both the narrator and blogger categories I had way over 30 (Yet with books I only had 12 “new to me this year” reads that ranked above a 4.75).Β  Narrowing narrators/bloggers down broke my heart so I am changing the format a bit! Hopefully, I can squeeze in everyone I want too!

  1. Diana always makes me want to read more cozies! I love Lisa Kleypas books, but really don’t like the Friday Harbor ones. I hope you will enjoy them more though Felicia.

  2. I enjoy Tanya Eby narrations, although the Friday Harbor series wouldn’t be a Lisa Kleypa’s series I’d recommend (she has sooo much better novels than those, if it’s your first), Tanya does do a goo job with it.
    Thanks for the introduction to Books of Secrets – I’ll make sure to follow closer πŸ™‚

    • I have heard her historicals are better? I tried one Friday Harbor (didn’t love it, didn’t hate it but I thought it was a mood thing) πŸ™‚

  3. I think I have visited that blog before but maybe not very much, will go check it out again. πŸ™‚ So I went and read some comments on the this narrator for the first book in Susan Mallery’s Fool’s Gold series and it seems like you are the only one who likes this narrator..lol. I have never heard of her before, so I would like to know what it is you like about her..everyone on audible.com says she is awful and goes slow then fast, etc. I have been thinking about reading this series, but listening sounds more fun, so now I am curious..lol.

    • So like most narrators, I think it is the person listening. I love the melodic tone of her voice and she has just enough “spunk” for small town contemporary romances. Though, it was the Rizzoli and Isles Mysteries that I first encountered her. She really shines with mysteries–she has an edgy enough voice that makes the characters shine. Her male voices take a bit to get used to but she rocks the female characters.

    • I know right? There should be a book blogger island where we all have huts we can escape too πŸ™‚ Where the wine and chocolate and other favorites flow freely!

  4. ((hugs))

    I’m so glad you tuned me into audiobooks. They go perfectly with crafting projects. I can do two things at once, finally!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Felicia!
