#1: Beach Read
By Emily Henry
10 hours 12 minutes
“This title says it all - Beach Read is the perfect romantic beach read book and not just because of the romance. Emily Henry has given us complex characters in a solid story line while keeping the sexual tension at a perfect, steamy temperature. Beach Read IS the perfect beach read; but it is also the perfect vacation read, staycation read, quarantine read, and escape read. Queue it up, pop in your ear buds, and the hours will disappear.”Mary, Anderson's Bookshop

#3: The Giver of Stars
By Jojo Moyes
13 hours 52 minutes
“In the late 1930s, the Works Progress Administration developed a number of projects intended to provide employment opportunities for unemployed artists, writers, and craftsmen. One of those projects was the Pack Horse Library Initiative, in which mounted horsewomen picked their way along snowy hillsides and through muddy creeks with a simple goal: to deliver reading material to Kentucky’s isolated mountain communities. In The Giver of Stars, Moyes has brought to life the amazing, funny, adventurous stories of a few of these trailblazing women. Historical fiction lovers will devour this story of a little-known piece of U.S. history.”Angie Tally, The Country Bookshop

#5: The Starless Sea
18 hours 36 minutes
“What an amazing written and performed tale of love, mystery, and magic. This homage to books and storytelling is like nothing I’ve read... ever. Morgenstern has achieved a wondrous feat that defies measure.”Paul, Village Books
#6: Get a Life, Chloe Brown
The Brown Sisters: Book #1
Narrated by Adjoa Andoh / 10 hours 17 minutes
“Get a Life, Chloe Brown is such a wonderful, inclusive, body-positive, fun, moving, and steamy book, the kind of novel I want to shove into every person’s hand who says they don’t read romance. Chloe Brown is a plus-size black British woman with chronic illness who is confident, sharp, sarcastic, brilliant, and adorable as hell—and, to my great relief, totally comfortable and happy with her looks and her size. After being temporarily knocked down by her illness, Chloe decides to reclaim her life, so she makes a to-do list: ride a motorcycle, have meaningless sex, go camping, etc. It was such an absolute treat to read a novel about a plus-size woman with a disability having amazing, mind-blowing sex and loving her life. I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about this book, so instead I will just force everyone I know to read it.”Elissa Sweet, Bank Square Books
#7: A Song of Wraiths and Ruin
Narrated by Jordan Cobb & A.J. Beckles / 12 hours 3 minutes
“Escape into a time of heroes with Achilles' heels, women in armor, villains who might not be, murderous gardens, feisty gods, and little girls with terrible power. Enter, and gasp in awe at the rich, ancient culture, like no other in fiction, at the ricochet speed of shattering trust, the twisting of allegiances and the fracturing facets of an origin myth about to explode through the crowded streets during a raucous national festival. Two teens have explicit reasons to find and kill each other, one hobbled by ignorance, the other by illness, both with motives of love and desperation, each on opposite sides of a fracturing empire. Who is the griot putting each on such an unlikely path to meet? Or is there a more disturbing reason these two are drawn to each other? Highly recommended for teens and adults!”Nialle, The Haunted Bookshop
#8: A Long Petal of the Sea
9 hours 46 minutes
“Isabel Allende’s latest novel couldn’t come at a better time for American readers heading into an election season. With immigration and desperate people seeking asylum as its central narrative thread, the novel reminds us of the uncanny resiliency of the human spirit and the power of love — both of others and of country — to restore and heal. From his awe-inspiring feat in the novel’s opening pages to his persistence in the face of a lifetime of adversity, cardiologist Victor Dalmau will live long and well in readers’ minds.”Kelly Barth, Raven Book Store
#9: Take a Hint, Dani Brown
The Brown Sisters
Narrated by Ione Butler / 10 hours
“Take a Hint, Dani Brown is a heartwarming romance that shines a light in dark times. Talia Hibbert normalizes quirks, coping mechanisms, and other human conditions that can get glossed over in a happily ever after. She makes it clear that verbalizing needs, sharing them with a loved one, and having them accepted is the true meaning of love. The depth of the characters and their struggles to come together are wonderfully balanced with charm, humor, and a large dollop of sarcasm. Take a Hint, Dani Brown is a delight.”Julie Karaganis, Copper Dog Books
#10: One to Watch

#11: The Night Circus
Narrated by Jim Dale / 13 hours 38 minutes
“Scintillating, ethereal, and utterly captivating. And with narration by Jim Dale, who could say no? Morgenstern writes in sparkling prose, slowly weaving tapestries that come together in beautiful, unexpected ways, though when you look back, the stage had been set from the beginning. The Night Circus is a beautiful tale of being open to the magic in the world and choosing your own path through it all. Now if only I knew where the Cirque was making its next stop. Perhaps I'll email the proprietor... ”Britt, Second Star to the Right
#12: Red, White & Royal Blue
12 hours 15 minutes
“Fresh, irreverent, and funny, Red, White & Royal Blue is a delight and a treasure. With subtle jabs, Casey McQuiston pokes fun at both the public face of the British monarchy as well as the back-door politicking that dominates the U.S. political scene. The story follows the self-centered Alex Claremont-Diaz (America’s First Son) and his interactions with British Prince Henry of Wales. As hostility increases between two political scions forced into a sham friendship, we see the framework of political destiny and duty begin to fray. Little by little, hostility turns to something else entirely. This is a story about happiness — and, more importantly, honesty — for those who live their lives in the public eye.”Todd Ketcham, The Book Cellar
#13: 10 Things I Hate about Pinky

#14: The Worst Best Man
By Mia Sosa
Narrated by Rebecca Mozo & Wayne Mitchell / 10 hours
“Lina’s fiancé left her at the altar three years ago, and now she’s faced with a job opportunity... at her ex-fiancé’s company. It gets better, she’s preparing her pitch with his brother, the worst best man who convinced him not to marry her. Lina is a woman to root for and who always surprised me. She faces the daily complexity of expressing her emotions truthfully as a woman - and a woman of color at that. She owns a business and is very close to her mãe and tias, all of which are successful, immigrant women who raised their own children as single mothers. This novel is bursting with beautiful Brazilian culture, swoony scenes, and fist-pumping declarations of the heart. And most of all, it’s a reminder to be true to your feelings and to live up to no one’s expectations but your own.”Leah, Bright Side Bookshop

The Parasol Protectorate: Book #1
Narrated by Emily Gray / 10 hours 48 minutes
“Alexia Tarabotti is a spinster and a lady, drinking tea and chaperoning balls in London during the time of Queen Victoria's reign. She also happens to be a preternatural, or soulless being, one of the very few lucky individuals who can take away the power of a supernatural being (such as a vampire or werewolf) simply by her touch. When she accidentally kills a vampire (well, he was trying to drink her blood at the time), she is forced to contend with Lord Maccon, the werewolf leader of both the local pack and the local national office of supernatural investigations. Fans of Jane Austen-ish writing and fantasy forces will love this wicked, and wickedly funny, romp through London, supernatural-style. The subtitle says it all, really: A Novel of Vampires, Werewolves, and Parasols. ”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.

#24: Evvie Drake Starts Over
By Linda Holmes
9 hours 6 minutes
“I enjoyed following Evvie's journey as she navigated her life and figured out how to handle loss, love, friendships, family and happiness. This book was a great escape with a sweet romance woven throughout. I enjoyed the nods to NPR and, since I'm from Minnesota, enjoyed the mentions of my home state as well. A perfect beach listen!”Myrna, Content
#25: In the Midst of Winter
Narrated by Dennis Boutsikaris, Jasmine Cephas Jones & Alma Cuervo / 9 hours 47 minutes
“By the end of In the Midst of Winter, I felt as though I'd had a south-of-the-border history lesson. The title, which comes from an Albert Camus quote, takes on many meanings in the story. Two NYU professors, Richard Bowmaster and his tenant, Luc?a Maraz, both in their 60s, have each resigned themselves to a ho-hum existence. When a snowstorm accident brings Evelyn Ortega, a housekeeper for a wealthy family, into the picture, these three lives become entangled and anything but boring. The story takes the reader from Brooklyn to Mexico, Guatemala, Chile, and Brazil as the three characters bring their unique histories to the story. Allende's new novel is both a love story and a story of the plight of the immigrant. This is a page-turner and a wonderful book club choice.”Mamie Potter, Quail Ridge Books
#26: Bringing Down the Duke

By Evie Dunmore
12 hours 20 minutes

#30: This Is How You Lose The Time War
4 hours 15 minutes
“Agents for opposite sides of a war without an end or beginning find themselves drawn to one another. It starts as a little deadly competition, but it quickly becomes clear that it's more than just fascination. Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone work together like steak and a fine wine. Some of the most beautiful prose, and two of the most complex characters ever written, This is How You Lose the Time War is a tragic love story wrapped in science fiction. Emily Woo Zeller and Cynthia Farrell narrate with such emotion that the listener believes every word they say. This is one of my favorite Audiobooks of all time.”Sophie, Cavalier House Books
