Audiobooks Now Accepted and Reviewed


Because of the growing popularity of audiobooks and our continued desire to support authors, Books & Benches now accepts audiobooks for review. These will be accepted on a limited basis and only for the genres listed below. Of course, we love a great story, but the narration can make or break a good book, so we're going to be a bit picky.

What we look for in audiobooks: 
—Clear and smooth narrations without background noise.
—Sex scenes must not be overly graphic and must be limited to two.
—No gratuitous language.
—We enjoy both male and female narrators.
—Dialogue and accents should sound natural, not forced.
—If a book is self-published, it must be professionally edited, and there are no exceptions to this. 
—We prefer Audible.com codes or physical cds. Sometimes we have reviewers in the UK, so Audible UK codes may also be accepted.

Audiobook Genres Accepted: 
Please do not send a request for an audiobook that doesn't fall into one of these genres.

—Historical Fiction
—Historical Romance
—Mysteries/Thrillers/Suspense
—Romantic Suspense
—Westerns
—Western Romance
—Christmas books

Accepted books will be reviewed in the order they are received, and can take between 1-3 months to post a review depending upon the reviewer's schedule. As with all our reviews, if we cannot give the audiobook a 3 1/2 star rating or higher, it will not be posted on this blog.
