Kim Possible- I mean, Mara Dyer

Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Okay, so I'm hoping you guys remember Kim Possible. If you don't, I'm not sure we can be friends. (Okay, not really. We can still be friends...but you should go watch some of the episodes, okay?) It was this fantastic cartoon on Disney that was my all time favorite show of my childhood. It had friendships, crime-fighting, girl power, a naked mole rat... the whole deal.

So was I a little excited when I found out that Christy Carlson Romano (the voice of Kim herself) is the narrator of the Mara Dyer audio books? Um, yeah, you could say that.

And while I did some squealing on Twitter, I wanted to continue my happy dance over here on the blog. I mean...

Okay, so maybe I just wanted to use this picture.

The audio books are up on Audible today and you can listen to a sample. (Here's the Evolution of Mara Dyer, too.) I've already listened and it. is. awesome. Seriously, after the first 2 seconds of "Omigosh, Kim Possible is narrating one of my favorite books!" you start thinking, "Omigosh, this narration of one of my favorite books is perfect!" 

I've never actually listened to an audio book- I'm not against them, they just haven't ever appealed to me- but I'm thinking The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer will be my first. I got to refresh for the Retribution of Mara Dyer somehow, right? ;)

Are you as excited for this audio book as I am?

  1. I haven't been the biggest audiobook fan, mostly because it takes forever to get through them. But the voice of Kim Possible...how fun is that? I can't wait for The Retribution of Mara Dyer, and yes, I need to reread the first two to refresh. Glad you're enjoying the audiobook! ~Pam

    1. Yeah, that's always been one of my hesitations, as well, but I think it'll be worth it for the voice of KP. :)

  2. I've never listened to an audiobook actually... But I do know Kim Possible! (guess what sound I use as tone for my incoming texts on my iPhone *smiles*)
    It is really awesome that the voice of Kim Possible is used, so many good childhood memories are attached to that voice! I used to watch it all the time with my little sis <3

  3. At first when I heard the title of the post, I was like, "Okay, where is she going with this," but I was intrigued. I want to let you know I'm cackling with your ingenious segue way, I think it's perfect in every single way.
