The Island of Sea Women

A Novel

By Lisa See
Narrated by: Jennifer Lim
Length: 13 hours 22 minutes

The Island of Sea Women

“As with her previous novels, Lisa See manages to transport the reader to another culture. Using the universal themes of friendship and female empowerment See brings a WWII Korean island to life. Mi-ja and Young-sook, sisters of the heart, grow together and then are forced apart by circumstances much larger than themselves. The story shifts between older Young-sook and the younger girls teasing out the conflict and making the reader anxious for resolution! The narrator flows seamlessly from American English into Korean (towns, names and some common terms), a huge help if you are not familiar with Korean words.”

The Secret Keeper of Jaipur

The Jaipur Trilogy: Book #2

By Alka Joshi
Narrated by: Sneha Mathan, Ariyan Kassam & Deepa Samuel
Length: 11 hours 8 minutes

The Secret Keeper of Jaipur

“At the grand opening of the Royal Jewel Cinema there are secrets left untold. Secrets about adoptions that happened, and those that didn't. Secrets about marriages arranged to build dynasties and those to save face. And a man who was a nobody as a boy is going by a different name, and some recognize him and others either don't or choose not to. By the end of the first chapter there's a surprising collapse, and chapter two changes to the voice of the widow of a shepherd. The third narrator, the wife of a doctor, was the primary in Alka Joshi's first book, The Henna Artist, which I have not read but now want to. In the last few months I've read a number of books that are not my typical genre or setting. This glimpse into India, with not a single white character in the whole of the book, made me want to see and touch all the fabrics, eat all the foods, and peep into these amazing intertwined lives to see what lies beneath the surface. ”

Broken (in the best possible way)

“I do love reading Jenny Lawson's books, but I have to admit: I love listening to them more. It's like having her sit with me, telling me stories, making me crack up and squirt water through my nose. It is hilarious and thoughtful at the same time. And definitely the perfect thing for right now. ”

The Ex Talk

By Rachel Lynn Solomon
Narrated by: Emily Ellet
Length: 10 hours 52 minutes

The Ex Talk

“This is such a fun rom-com! Instead of a fake dating trope, we get a fake breakup! 'The Ex Talk' is a relationship radio show hosted by exes. The catch: The two hosts never dated. They are coworkers and adversaries. Guess what? They fall in love, and this is very problematic for the show. This is a very quick listen and it made my heart very happy. I was fully invested in the the two main characters, Shay and Dominic.”
