In addition to the ones Issybird has mentioned: I like Cassandra Campbell, Julia Whelan, Khristine Hvam, Hillary Huber, Amy Rubinate, and Katherine Kellgren.

Whelan and Hvam are especially good for young-sounding female voices, Huber and Rubinate for noir femme fatales.

Hi everyone. I prefer to read audiobooks narrated by women. But I'm not partial to the romance genre. Can someone recommend me audiobooks voiced by women? Preferably not from the romance/adult genre?
What genres do you like? I'm sure there are plenty of women readers out there.

I don't listen to a lot of audio, but I have listened to this one by Tamora Pierce (Fantasy) -- it happens to be on sale for $1.99 this week at Apple (I had the CDS, but I assume it's the same recording produced by Full Cast Audio):

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id999121797

edited to add

The others in the series have also been marked down from 24.99 to 9.99: WOLF-SPEAKER, EMPEROR MAGE, and REALMS OF THE GODS.

I've got most of Pierce's books in audiobook. Kind of odd that they are being sold as apps rather than simply as audiobooks.

It may have to do with the upload procedure. Apple makes it pretty difficult to upload things and can take a looong while to approve them. Example: To directly upload ebooks for sale you MUST have a MAC -- no other apple machine will work (I have an iPad and it won't work to upload books for sale because they have an app they use and it will ONLY download to a Mac) and it must have 10.latest OS loaded.

I think they are also pretty restrictive with audio so perhaps this was the cheapest and fastest way to do it? Just a guess.

They actually have all the Tamora Pierce books in the audiobook store (for $15). It could be that they are experimenting with a way to expand their audience to people who are much more familiar with the app store than the audiobook store. Or they could be experimenting with a different price model.

Just noticed that an audiobook version of Barbara Pym's Excellent Women is now available in the U.S.! I can only hope that more of her titles will make it to audio on this side of the pond!

If anyone is looking for a nonfiction title, which happens to read like a piece of gripping fiction, consider Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick, narrated by Karen White.

Lauren Ezzo is an excellent narrator and seems to do a variety of stuff. I've got a Christmas Horror novel she narrated.

Thanks for the recommendation. I had borrowed this book from the library as an ebook but then was too busy to read it before I had to return it. Maybe I'll try it as an audiobook instead.
