#JIAM My Favorites!
June is Audiobook Month! Today is a busy day for me so I thought I would throw up a list of my favorite audiobooks as recommendations for you!
Earth's Children Series
This series is the story of Ayla during the time of the Cave man. The first of the series being The Clan of the Cavebear: A remarkable epic of one woman's odyssey - filled with mystery and magic. Here is the saga of a people who call themselves the Clan of the Cave Bear; how they lived; the animals they hunted; the great totems they revered. But mostly it is the story of Ayla, the girl they found and raised, who was not like them. To the Clan, her fair looks make her different - ugly. And she has odd ways: she laughs, she cries, she has the ability to speak. But even more, she struggles to be true to herself and, with her advanced intelligence, is curious about the world around her. Although Ayla is clearly a member of the Others, she is nurtured by her adoptive parents, befriended by members of the Clan, and gradually accepted into the family circle. But there are those who would cast her out for her strange, threatening ways. So the conflict between the ancient Clan, bound by heredity to its traditions, and the girl in its midst, of a newer breed destined to alter the face of earth, could never be resolved. And it is this same struggle that leads Ayla to venture where no Clan woman has ever dared. Driven by destiny and a will to survive, Ayla breaks the forbidden taboo.

Sookie Stackhouse Series!
I have to say that I am a lover of this series, but what constantly keeps me coming back to the audiobooks is the narrator. She does a fantastic job and if an audiobook is narrated by her, I know it's something I will enjoy listening to.
Vampires have officially "come out of the coffin", and Miss Sookie can't wait for one to come her way. Anthony Award-winner Charlaine Harris' New York Times and USA Today best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novels entice countless fans with an irresistible mixture of vampire romance, beguiling mystery, and old-fashioned Southern charm.
