2014 Celebrity Narration – Female Nominees and Reviews

The following audiobooks were nominated by the Armchair Audies Team in the Celebrity Narration – Female Category to draw awareness to how celebrity nominations have begun to dominate the Solo Narration categories (you’ll notice there isn’t a huge difference between the Celebrity and the Solo Narration categories). Reviews will be posted as they come in.

This category will be judged by Krista from Cubicle Blindness. Would you like to join her? Send an email to armchairaudies@gmail.com.

    N0S4R2 was amazing but again I have only listened to one out of this category. This year there weren’t many of the nominees that I have listened too.

    I read NOS4A2 in print. I think Bob enjoyed the audiobook if I remember correctly. I’ve actually listened to more of the nominees this year than in the past (which still isn’t many), but they’re all in other categories. For 2013 I tried to predict nominated titles, but things came out of left field and I wasn’t close. I would have been no closer this year.
