13. Kathy Bates – The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris
14. Anne Hathaway – The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot
Mia Thermopolis reads Mia Thermopolis? But of course! Anne Hathaway narrated the first three books in the audio versions of Meg Cabot’s hit series: The Princess Diaries, Princess in the Spotlight, and Princess in Love.
15. Ian McKellen – The Odyssey by Homer
The Fagles translation of The Odyssey had just come out the summer before my freshman year in high school, so naturally, that was the one were assigned time and time again. But lest the big Greek epics seem too grand for you, never fear! Fagles’ translation is notable for its accessibility. And when you’ve got Gandalf guiding you through it? Piece of cake!
Happy listening, Bettys!
