14. Anne Hathaway – The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot

Anne Hathaway

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

Ian McKellen

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!

  1. Yeah, I can understand that. To be honest, I didn't love the last seasons. But overall it's a great show!
    Round about now us bookish types tend to find ourselves out scouring the retail world
    not for flowers, not for chocolates
    but for the Valentine’s Day gift we know our sweeties will really like best: a book.
    After all, how better to convey our affection than with something romantic between two covers?

    Thank you for the great information!
