Mexican Gothic

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Narrated by: Frankie Corzo
Length: 10 hours 39 minutes

Mexican Gothic

“Best book I have read this year. An amazing, gripping tale of a young woman in a strange old house. It's an epic ghost story mixed with some element for "Girl with all the Gifts." Compelling characters and a twist ending that will have you in the edge of your seat until the very end. 10/10 would recommend. ”

You Had Me at Hola

A Novel

By Alexis Daria
Narrated by: Seraphine Valentine
Length: 10 hours 27 minutes

You Had Me at Hola

“You know the kind of stories that wrap you up in a fuzzy blanket and make all your troubles fade into the background? Yeah, this is one of those. You Had Me at Hola is fun, sweet, funny, at times downright adorable, and also steamy. Because really, any romance that begins with a snarky coffee spill meet cute is sure to have plenty more perfection in store. Can we talk about how wonderful it is to see mainstream telenovela portrayal and destigmatization? And intimacy coordinators? Daria crafts beautiful, complex characters (Ashton's son made me melt), whose motivations extend far beyond wooing each other, thereby lending credibility to their actions, with conversations surrounding what it means to trust someone, and balancing privacy in a public world, somehow adding to the swoon.”
