10 World Of Warcraft Audiobooks, To Get Your Read On With Your Game On

World of Warcraft is a vast and immersive world that has exploded beyond online gaming into tabletop games, comics, movies, novels and more. If you love World of Warcraft, you’ll want to explore more of its universe. And as they won’t take time away from gaming, World of Warcraft audiobooks can be an excellent solution. Ten of the twenty-five World of Warcraft novels are available as audiobooks.

Note: Blizzard, the creators of World of Warcraft, have begun to push for more diversity in their games. But the diversity of their game Overwatch upset some straight white male fans. So it’s clear the gaming world still has some distance to travel here. And it is worth acknowledging that all these books are written by white people.

Rah Froemming-Carter: Rah Froemming-Carter is a British introvert with perhaps too much time on their hands. This time gets filled attempting to devour as many books as possible in a constant struggle to read more than they buy. In between reading these assorted tomes and comic books they might be found blogging, writing first drafts of fantasy novels, or knitting oversized scarves. A firm believer in filling life with things they can get excited about, Rah directs this passion towards a plethora of topics including feminism, philosophy, queer representation, Victorian culture, and Harry Potter. One day they plan to finish writing that novel, and to take up beekeeping. Blog: Schrodinger's Triceratops Twitter: triceratops23
