Act Your Age, Eve Brown

A Novel

By Talia Hibbert
Narrated by: Ione Butler
Length: 10 hours 51 minutes

If you enjoyed The Proposal, then you’ll love Act Your Age, Eve Brown.

“If you want an instant mood lifter, these books are for you! Hibbert writes a romance that is both cute and fun and STEAMY. Over the course of three books, she follows three sisters and their love lives. The Brown family is delightfully erratic. The sisters each have their own unique personalities and life troubles though were born into a certain level of financial privilege. Eve Brown, the youngest and most unmoored, is the subject of this third novel. Hibbert crafts great characters and a story that is easy to fall into. It will entertain the h*ll out of you if you let it! Eve is fun. Normally, her listlessness would stress me out but she had such a fun personality that was determined as well as indecisive and I enjoyed her internal monologues. I liked that Brown tackled autism in both males and females and demystified it a little (reminded me of Helen Hoang's The Kiss Quotient). Ione Butler was a fantastic narrator. I had listened to Hibbert's last installment about middle sister Dani with Butler at the helm too and thoroughly enjoyed it. She has a very smooth and flirty voice that draw you in and adds sass to her characters. The ending was a little crazy, the entire Brown family once again making things difficult, but I was smiling by the end. Highly recommended to romance fans, Jasmine Guillory/Helen Hoang readers, and those that need a light, fun mental break.”

Caul Baby

A Novel

By Morgan Jerkins
Narrated by: Joniece Abbott-Pratt
Length: 10 hours 52 minutes

Caul Baby

“There are so many books coming out that are just checking the boxes on hot topics and the story often times doesn't incorporate the boxes well. This does. It is so true and forceful in it's writing that you feel as though you are there in the story. It's an important book, one that should be shared and talked about. If you want to experience someone else's life run to the bookstore and grab a copy. Brilliant. I listened to it and gripped the wheel in parts. The lives of the women making up this story are so twisted together and mesmerizing. So many of us have suffered a miscarriage but what we do after is where this story starts. How far will we go. AMAZING”

Firekeeper's Daughter

By Angeline Boulley
Narrated by: Isabella Star LaBlanc
Length: 14 hours 13 minutes

Firekeeper's Daughter

“Daunis Fontaine, a bi-racial Ojibwe-Italian-American girl has just graduated high school and has deferred enrollment at the University of Michigan to attend the local state school. She plans to spend more time with her best friend Lily, her ailing Grandmother, and her mom who was recently rocked by the sudden death of her brother, Daunis’ uncle. But then tragedy strikes, and Daunis is the eyewitness. And she is thrown headfirst into an FBI investigation of meth addiction and distribution within the reservation her family lives on and the greater Upper Peninsula area. A nuanced and compassionate look at addiction and the justice system and the risks one girl takes to help her friends, her community, and herself. The truth is a tangled web that it seems only Daunis is willing to carefully pick apart to not only expose the criminals but heal the victims as well. A little bit of romance, a little bit thriller, a whole bunch of hockey, STEM nerds, Firekeeper’s Daughter was engaging and gripping. PS I desperately need an Auntie spin-off.”

Milk Blood Heat

Stories

By Dantiel W. Moniz
Narrated by: Machelle Williams
Length: 5 hours 31 minutes

Milk Blood Heat

Milk Blood Heat grabbed me and wouldn’t let go. The prose blisters with a beauty so raw and intense it borders on horrifying. With widely differing characters, voices, and settings, each story makes its own unique contribution to the collection, yet each propels the reader onward in turn. Dantiel W. Moniz is a jaw-dropping new star on the literary stage.”
