Hi Y’all! It is November and I am bringing back #30DaysOfThanks for Year 4 aka #30DaysOfThanks2015. I had so much fun doing this last 3 years that I thought I would recycle the program again this year. Switching it up this year with 3 posts a day–1 author, 1 narrator, and 1 blogger that really touched me this year. I didn’t have room to thank everyone because really my life overfloweth with awesome bloggers, books, and listening enjoyment. I tried to fit in some new people who have come into my life/reading enjoyment the last year while still shouting out my tribe of many years. I am so glad that I didn’t have room because it means my life ROCKS!
I am a huge fan of Renee Raudman! For romance friends, if you haven’t listened to the Ilona Andrew’s Kate Daniels series on audio –you are truly missing out. She delivers on every level! This year I also listened to a book that has been on my TBR for a long time: Stolen Innocence by Elissa Wall. It is a non-fiction book that really was heartbreaking. Renee handled the narration with a delicate but firm performance. It was perfect for the story. She also narrates the Hannah Smith series by Randy Wayne White which is one of my favorite mystery/thriller writers. Her catalog of work is large and varied. I am pretty sure no matter what you read–you will find something narrated by Renee. You really should try her!
