As you know this year has been the year of Audiobooks so I thought I would pick one of the most important elements in an audiobook to talk about. The Narrator. The reader.
Whatever your want to call them they can make or break a book. So here are my top 5 narrators for 2014.
1.  Narrator: Nick Podehl
I listened to Carter Finally Gets It and I was blown away by this young man.  He was soo in the head of a high school freshman.  His voice was perfect and I will make it a point to check out a few of his other reads as well.  (Will Grayson, Will Grayson and Chaos Walking)
2.  Narrator: Jim Dale 
Hello!!!!!  This is the voice of all voices.  He is the man!  OMG!  And when I was reading The Night Circus I found out he did the audiobook so I just had to have him read it to me.  DUH!  This is a no-brainer.  If you haven't read The Night Circus yet make sure you get the audiobook.  (The Emerald Atlas, Liesl & Po
3.  Narrator:  Khristine Hvam 
This is a great reader.  She is the voice of the loveable Zuzanna in Daughter of Smoke and Bone and her accent is fun and makes you smile.  (Why We Broke Up and The Iron Daughter)
4.  Narrator: Jeremy Irons 
When I was listening to this audiobook I forgot at times it was a book.  Jeremy became HH and he had me hooked into the book several times.  That is not good when you are sitting in the parking lot at work.  (James and The Giant Peach)
5.  Narrator: Aaron Stanford 
Four is a great character anyways but adding Aaron Stanford to his voice was icing on the cake.  He's acting ability shines in the short stories.  

These are my favorite narrators (not in any particular order) from 2014.  They brought the books to the top of the pile.  

Who were some of your favorite narrators this year?
