Something that has always drawn me to the audio format is the intimacy of storytelling. Whether an author is sharing their own personal memories or a narrator takes on the persona of someone else, there is nothing quite like listening to someone share their story with you. These are some of our favorite books that were read by the author and some stand-out narrators from 2014.
