Audiobook Recommendation – August 2021

My list of recommended books for August 2021 is short than most because I am still not traveling long distances. I have noticed one distinct difference between Audiobook and Paperback books. Paperback books you always know when they are going to end. With Audiobooks, sometimes you get so into a book and when it ends, it comes at a complete surprise. This happened to me on several of these books.

One of the books this happened to me on was Mageblood: Mephisto’s Magic Online, Book 1, by Christopher Johns. I bow my head in shame that it took me over a year to start listening to Mageblood. It was an entertaining book. I have one major problem with it. It was something so unrealistic, I just could not believe the author put something like that in a book. How can the main character make a sandwich with leftover bacon? Leftover bacon does not exist in this world or any world.

Here is the list of my recommendations. They are not in any particular order:

Christopher Johns

  • Mageblood: Mephisto’s Magic Online, Book 1

Scott Meyers

  • Grand Theft Astro

Dakota Krout

  • Something: Full Murderhobo, Book 1
  • Inflame: The Completionist Chronicles, Book 6

Xander Boyce

  • Tallrock: A Fantasy LitRPG Adventure (Farming Livia, Book 1)

Luke Chmilenko

  • Glory to the Brave: Ascend Online, Book 4

Dennis E. Taylor

  • Heaven’s River: Bobiverse, Book 4 – This book was the weakest of all the books. But, I could have just been my issue. I could not get over how an author could end a book series, a big announcement it would be the last book, and then write another book. Note: It did make it on the list.

I borrowed the logo from Mountaindale Press for this post, because most of the books I have listened to in the past eight months have been published by Mountaindale Press. The logo was designed by on of their authors, which is so cool. When I looking for a new book, I look at books published by Mountaindale Press first. Every books I have listened that was published by them has been worth my time.

Audiobooks Recommendations – October 2019

It’s time again for my audio books recommendations.  However, this time I doing something a little different.   Since my last recommendations, I have primarily listened to books published by Mountaindale Press.  With a few exceptions.

Why have I concentrated on books published by Mountaindale Press?  Well, I have trouble finding good books.  I really enjoyed Dakota Krout’s Divine Dungeon Book Series, so I decided that I would give other books by Mountaindale Press a listen.  So, far I all of their books have been enjoyable and entertaining.  Below is the list of books, I have completed.  They are all awesome in their own way.

  • Dungeon Born: Divine Dungeon Series, Book 1 – Dakota Krout
  • Dungeon Madness: Divine Dungeon Series, Book 2 – Dakota Krout
  • Dungeon Calamity: Divine Dungeon Series, Book 3 – Dakota Krout
  • Dungeon Desolation: Divine Dungeon Series, Book 4 – Dakota Krout
  • Ritualist: Completionist Chronicles, Book 1 – Dakota Krout
  • Regicide: The Completionist Chronicles Series, Book 2 – Dakota Krout
  • Into the Light: Axe Druid, Book 1 – Christopher Johns

  • Into the Dragon’s Den, Book 2 – Christopher Johns

  • Advent, Red Mage, Book 1 – Xander Boyce

  • Siphon, A Touch of Power, Book 1 – Jay Boyce
  • Adapt, A Touch of Power, Book 2 – Jay Boyce
  • Party Hard, Pixel Dust, Book 1 – David Petrie

Books I have enjoyed from other publishers:

  • The Vexed Generation: Magic 2.0, Book 6 – Scott Meyer

I would like say I am ready from the next books in these series, but I have at least four books waiting for a listen.  However, when the next books in these series are published, they will probably be moved to the top of the list.

Thanks, Mountaindale Press @Mountaindale, for making my 1100 miles road trips entertaining.

Ray Porter has become my favorite narrator, thanks to Bobiverse.  Searching for books narrated by Ray Porter is how I found Peter Clines’ books.
