top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

This week’s topic is an audio freebie so I’ve chosen to share my favourite audiobook narrators with You. I’ve also included some of my favourite books that they’ve read in case you want to check them out yourself.


Imogen Church is a fairly ‘new to me’ narrator, but one that I rush to listen to whenever I have the chance.

Julie Teal narrates 3 of my favourite series, The Charton Minster, Maisie Dobbs and the Clara Vine series all historical fiction

Martin Jarvis is a famous British actor who’s been reading audiobooks for years and is particularly well know for his ‘Just William’ recitals.

Tavia Gilbert has narrated so many books and these are three that I really enjoyed.

Rachel McAdams performed this audiobook and it made me fall in love with Anne Shirley


Penelope Rawlins made me laugh out loud so many times whilst I listened to book these books

Jack Hawkins has got the most wonderful voice that I’m sure I’d be spellbound if he read my my shopping list


Tom Baker is wonderful reading A Christmas Carol


Finty Williams really brought this audiobook to life for me, that I can’t imagine anyone else narrating it.

Colin Mace is a new narrator for me, and a brilliant one for reading books with tough guys as the main character
