Everything's Trash, But It's Okay

By Phoebe Robinson
Narrated by: Phoebe Robinson
Length: 8 hours 55 minutes

Everything's Trash, But It's Okay

“Phoebe Robinson’s new collection of essays will make you laugh out loud and is a great tutorial on being trash but forgiving yourself for it while still being able to name the things that are #serioustrash. These essays get real about the sitch of our union—calling out nonintersectional feminists, internalized sexism, our workaholic culture, and toxic sosh meeds (social media). Written in classic Phoebe stream-of-consciousness style, this is the perfect antidote to the garbage fire of 2018.”

My Sister, the Serial Killer

A Novel

By Oyinkan Braithwaite
Narrated by: Adepero Oduye
Length: 4 hours 14 minutes

My Sister, the Serial Killer

My Sister, the Serial Killer is one of the best books to come along in quite a while — fast, funny, and completely engrossing. Oyinkan Braithwaite offers up a tale of Nigerian sisters Ayoola, a beautiful and sociopathic serial killer who destroys boyfriends, aware that all they ever want her for is her appearance, and Korede, a nurse whose average looks leave her continually passed up in preference for Ayoola. Still, taciturn and devoted Korede works hard to cover up her charming sister’s crimes. What will happen when they both fall for the same guy? At once a page-turner and a perversely righteous tale about the emptiness of physical beauty and the superficiality of being charmed by it, My Sister, the Serial Killer is entertaining, provoking, and utterly fascinating!”

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”
