The Magician

A Novel

By Colm Toibin
Narrated by: Gunnar Cauthery
Length: 16 hours 37 minutes

The Magician

“Toíbín’s brilliant imagining of the life of Thomas Mann follows his superb 2004 novel The Master, about Henry James, and does not disappoint in the least. Feast on this intelligently, profoundly felt novel about the author of The Magic Mountain, Death in Venice, Buddenbrooks and many others.”

The Furthest Station

Rivers of London: Book #5

By Ben Aaronovitch
Narrated by: Kobna Holdbrook-Smith
Length: 3 hours 6 minutes

There have been ghosts on the London Underground, sad, harmless specters whose presence does little more than give a frisson to traveling and boost tourism. But now there's a rash of sightings on the Metropolitan Line and these ghosts are frightening, aggressive, and seem to be looking for something.

Three Sisters

A Novel

By Heather Morris
Narrated by: Finty Williams
Length: 13 hours 5 minutes

Three Sisters

“This novel was inspired by a true story set in WWII. I was initially interested in reading this because against all odds it was a tale of survival. Though painful at times with its descriptions of the sisters’ lives in the Auschwitz concentration camp, I was propelled to read on even as the life they endured defied belief. The outcome of these amazingly determined women was buoyed by the promise they made to their father to always look out for one another. Guided by this promise they amazingly find a path through the horrors to endure and survive. This is historical fiction with heart.”

A Marvellous Light

The Last Binding: Book #1

By Freya Marske
Narrated by: David Thorpe
Length: 14 hours 30 minutes

A Marvellous Light

“You know that feeling when you start a book and from the very beginning you find yourself thinking: “oh, we’re going to have FUN here.” That’s Freya Marke’s A Marvellous Light. Whip smart historical fantasy with one of the most unique and clever magic systems around. A centuries-old mystery threatening to unravel magical society and upset a deeply entrenched balance of power. A beautifully drawn and diverse supporting cast of friends and foes alike. And, as if that wasn’t enough, top it all off with some of my favorite things: a yearning-filled love story, and some truly marvelous sex. Genuinely the most fun I’ve had reading a book this year. I’m waiting with bated breath (and keeping some Cat’s Cradle sting handy) for the next in the series.”

The Hummingbird

A Novel

By Sandro Veronesi
Narrated by: Victor Vertunni, Silvia Presente & Kristin Atherton
Length: 8 hours 25 minutes

The Hummingbird

“Marco Carrera is one of those tragic but inspiring heroes that goes straight to your heart and makes a cozy home to stay forever. Although this book is not long, it covers the entirety of Marco’s life as we explore how he goes from constant regret of almost every choice to understanding and finding contentment in the purpose (or lack thereof) of his life. Veronesi presents the story in about 50 various snapshots from Marco’s life, in seemingly no particular order, and although and some of the events of Marco’s life are a bit too coincidental, the existential journey and the grief that Marco must process are universal and captivating. And the moments of transcendence that Marco eventually enjoys makes the entire story well-worth the read.”

Red, White & Royal Blue

A Novel

By Casey McQuiston
Narrated by: Ramon de Ocampo
Length: 12 hours 15 minutes

If you enjoyed The House in the Cerulean Sea, then you’ll love Red, White & Royal Blue.

“This book is so much more than a captivating romance—it's a bubble bath, a warm hug, a delicious dessert, a catharsis full of feeling and hope and queer joy that still makes me cry and laugh even as I've reread it 10+ times! The audiobook is skillfully narrated, and de Ocampo does far better British and Texan accents than my brain could come up with on its own reading the book in print. Recommended for listeners no matter your gender identity or orientation, but this truly is chicken soup for the queer soul.”

O Beautiful

A Novel

By Jung Yun
Narrated by: Catherine Ho
Length: 10 hours 57 minutes

O Beautiful

“This beautiful character-driven book set in the American Midwest covers many contemporary topics like racism, fracking, sexual harassment, and the immigrant experience. I loved the messy protagonist Elinor Hanson, a Korean American who grew up in South Dakota. A former model with a new career later in life as a journalist, Elinor has baggage that needs unpacking so badly her clothes are spilling out of her metaphorical suitcase at a rapid pace. Korean American author Jung Yun has written a fantastic novel in O Beautiful that surprised me over and over, especially by book's end.”
