Sharp Objects

A Novel

By Gillian Flynn
Narrated by: Ann Marie Lee
Length: 9 hours 33 minutes

Sharp Objects

“My favorite book by Flynn, also one of my favorite books ever. Journalist Camille is trying to find a new normal after inpatient treatment for a self-harm addiction (this is a very present part of the book, please read responsibly). Her life is made worse by an assignment to investigate murders in her hometown, where she’s forced to confront longtime dysfunctional relationships with her mother, sister, and self. The final lines of this novel are the best I’ve ever read. Not an easy book to read, but a good one.”

Hidden Pictures

A Novel

By Jason Rekulak
Narrated by: Suzy Jackson
Length: 9 hours 29 minutes

Hidden Pictures

Hidden Pictures is reminiscent of the John Saul books I loved in the late 70s and 80s. As his usually did, this story includes a child and some unexplained happenings that may or may not have a rational explanation. Mallory is a 20-year-old just recently out of rehab and a halfway house for drug abuse. Her sponsor finds her a job as a nanny to an adorable 5-year-old named Teddy. Mallory is well aware that she is under intense scrutiny by Teddy’s parents, who are knowledgeable of her past history. So, when strange things begin to happen, she is at first very wary of telling them what she suspects. For those of you who shy away from mysteries with paranormal vibes be aware that there is nothing supernatural about what happens when Mallory inadvertently discovers some real truths and nothing supernatural about the totally unseen twist that the story takes.”

A Cosmology of Monsters

A Novel

By Shaun Hamill
Narrated by: Sean Patrick Hopkins
Length: 10 hours 47 minutes

A Cosmology of Monsters

“When is the last time a horror novel was both scary and charming? A Cosmology of Monsters is that book! Riffing on themes from H.P. Lovecraft and Ray Bradbury, Hamill weaves a complex tale of lost cities, haunted Halloween attractions, and doorways to other worlds. I really enjoyed this literary horror story, which starts out as a love story (don’t ALL good horror tales?) and grows progressively creepier. The book posits the questions: Who are the real monsters, and why do we love to be scared? Truly an uber-creepy yet delightful homage. I loved it.”

Mexican Gothic

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Narrated by: Frankie Corzo
Length: 10 hours 39 minutes

Mexican Gothic

“Delightfully creepy. Dread builds steadily throughout the book. As a listener, you know that something is wrong but it’s hard to put your finger on it. Like the main character, you will doubt everything: the characters, their motivations and even your own deductive abilities. This book keeps you on your toes, flitting from one theory to the next. Mexican Gothic takes all the best of traditions of gothic house horror and infuses it with something new: the evils of colonialism. Listen carefully and consider keeping the lights on!”
