Convenience Store Woman

By Sayaka Murata & Ginny Tapley Takemori
Narrated by Nancy Wu /  3 hours 21 minutes

Convenience Store Woman

“Keiko loves rules. Having worked a part-time job in a Japanese convenience store for 18 years, she loves having a corporate script to recite, sales goals to reach, and a list of tasks to complete. What she doesn't love - or even understand - are the more complicated rules of society at large. She doesn't want a husband, or children, or a real job. What she does want is a satisfactory answer to the endless personal questions that will allow her to be left alone. Convenience Store Woman is a quirky and hilarious look at society and its misfits, and what happens when we try to bend ourselves to the needs of others.”

Pond

By Claire-Louise Bennett
Narrated by Lucy Rayner /  4 hours 51 minutes

In Claire-Louise Bennett's shimmering debut, an unnamed young woman—wry, somewhat misanthropic, keenly observant—chronicles her life on the outskirts of a small coastal village.

An Elderly Lady Is Up to No Good

By Helene Tursten & Marlaine Delargy
Narrated by Suzanne Toren /  3 hours 12 minutes

An Elderly Lady Is Up to No Good

“Refreshingly original, with great pacing, fascinating character development, and surprisingly funny charm in each short story. After almost 90 years of life, Maud delights in living life her way: splitting time between exploring the world and living in her rent-free apartment, alone. When someone - a selfish artist, the upstairs wife-beating neighbor, a gold-digger, or a shifty antiques dealer - threatens Maud’s lifestyle, well, that just won’t do. They’ll have to go. Luckily for Maud, no one suspects an elderly lady to be up to no good.”

The Deep

By Rivers Solomon, Daveed Diggs, William Hutson & Jonathan Snipes
Narrated by Daveed Diggs /  4 hours 1 minute

The Deep

“Solomon is perfectly suited to expand the concept of a civilization of merfolk whose origins were born in the violence of pregnant African women sent to the depths from the vessels of white slave traders. The Deep focuses on Yetu, whose role as historian is to be individually burdened with six centuries of memories of all the wajinru (merfolk), and the consequences when she abdicates her responsibility. With shades of Hans Christian Andersen, Ursula Le Guin, and Lois Lowry, plus inimitable explorations of difficult social interrelationships, Solomon’s short tome is, indeed, a deep read.”

This Is How You Lose The Time War

By Amal El-Mohtar & Max Gladstone
Narrated by Cynthia Farrell & Emily Woo Zeller /  4 hours 15 minutes

This Is How You Lose The Time War

“Such an interesting futuristic story! The battle of Red versus Blue - tech vs. garden - through time was a fun trip to read. I especially enjoyed how the main characters by fighting each other grew to love each other. It was also super nice to read a sci-fi book that isn't 1,000 pages long and still have enough detail that you aren't lost in the physics.I listened to this story on libro.fm. It was especially easy and enjoyable to follow as there were different voice actors for the different characters.”
