Not just a reader - I am a Story Addict! Speculative Fiction is near and dear to my heart, but I won't turn away a chilling thriller, a esoteric romance, or a literary tome. Just give me a good story!

A Thousand Ships

A Novel

By Natalie Haynes
Narrated by: Natalie Haynes
Length: 8 hours 33 minutes

A Thousand Ships

“A retelling of the Trojan War where the women are as heroic (if not more so) than the men. I especially liked Penelope’s arc, told through letters to her wayward and philandering husband. Having the author read the audiobook was 100% the right choice. ”

The Echo Wife

By Sarah Gailey
Narrated by: Xe Sands
Length: 8 hours 25 minutes

If you enjoyed Frankenstein, then you’ll love The Echo Wife.

“Riveting. There's a dark streak in Sarah Gailey's work, and it's really dark here. Come for the clones and the gossipy conceit of a husband having an affair with the wife's clone. Stay, because you can't stop listening. So much menace. So much horror. I lost sleep over this one.”

Mary Jane

A Novel

By Jessica Anya Blau
Narrated by: Caitlin Kinnunen
Length: 9 hours 44 minutes

Mary Jane

“This book was so stinking cute and was even better in audiobook format (Caitlin Kinnunen for the win!). I think the story was completely elevated by Broadway's Caitlin Kinnunen who's young but silky voice was perfectly able to capture the naiveté of Mary Jane and the roughness of Jimmy's singing voice. In general, the singing interludes of the audiobook are well worth the listen as they truly enliven the whole story. Mary Jane's aloofness as she enters this household that would be scoffed at by her straight-laced mother is very funny. The Cones live of cereal and takeout, with a fridge full of rotten and expired groceries. They also live freely with clothing, often stripping in front of each other and wearing clothing that Mary Jane's mother would consider risque. It's a coming of age story that spans only a single summer, where Mary Jane realizes how different life can be lived outside of her conservative household. Overall, a truly cute and light read that would be great for fans of coming of age stories and learning to push the boundaries on familial beliefs.”
