Delilah Green Doesn't Care

By Ashley Herring Blake
Narrated by: Kristen DiMercurio
Length: 11 hours 41 minutes

If you enjoyed One Last Stop, then you’ll love Delilah Green Doesn't Care.

“Like binging your favorite Gilmore Girls arc, this tender-hearted romance is full of small town charm and a cast of characters you won't want to leave. Delilah Green is a toughened New York photographer who just wants financial stability, and someone in her bed at night. Now, if only she could convince her lonely heart of that. Claire Sutherland owns the bookstore in the same small, Oregon town she grew up in, the same small town she's raising her daughter in. She just wants to convince her best friend that the man she's marrying next month is a literal shit boot. And also if her daughter's father could grow up and communicate, that would be great. And maybe she wants to get laid. When said best friend, Astrid hires her estranged sister, Delilah Green to photograph her wedding, bringing her back to the small town she swore she'd never return to, Delilah and Claire are thrown into a whirlwind of misunderstandings, camping trips, wine nights, photography lessons, society parties, and horrendously-decorated inns. Sweet, a little steamy, and full of lonely people finding that home is a group of people, not a location."”

She Gets the Girl

By Rachael Lippincott & Alyson Derrick
Narrated by: Natalie Naudus & Valentina Ortiz
Length: 8 hours 14 minutes

If you enjoyed You Can Go Your Own Way, then you’ll love She Gets the Girl.

“The is one of those uplifting, so-cute-you-have-to-squeal books! The authors nailed the vibes of an excellent 90s rom-com (except it’s right now and sapphic.) The narrators capture Molly and Alex brilliantly! She Gets the Girl is as cute, bright, and as full of joy as a night at the roller rink.”

A Novel

By Alison Cochrun
Narrated by: Vikas Adam, Graham Halstead & Cassandra Campbell
Length: 10 hours 51 minutes

The Charm Offensive

“Cochrun expertly captures the nuance of falling for someone with mental health issues, while navigating your own identity, sexuality and neurodivergent revelations in way I have never seen before.

You Should See Me in a Crown

By Leah Johnson
Narrated by: Alaska Jackson
Length: 7 hours 18 minutes

You Should See Me in a Crown

“Here is the novel that will restore your faith in humanity in spades. In Campbell, Indiana, being crowned prom royalty is the ultimate recognition. And this year Liz Lighty needs to win that crown because it happens to be attached to an academic scholarship she desperately needs. The cards are stacked against her: she struggles with anxiety, poverty and grief, all while being queer and Black in a staunchly traditional white culture. Alaska Jackson's narration infuses these fresh voices with nuance and vitality. Liz Lighty's journey to finding her voice and claiming her power in a midwestern town that has historically never made space for 'outliers' is a jubilant one that we are so lucky take alongside her.”

I Kissed Shara Wheeler

A Novel

By Casey McQuiston
Narrated by: Natalie Naudus
Length: 9 hours 24 minutes

If you enjoyed One Last Stop, then you’ll love I Kissed Shara Wheeler.

“I had never read romance, queer or otherwise, before Casey McQuiston. MANY of us fell in love with her Red, White, and Royal Blue. Her 3rd book, I Kissed Shara Wheeler, is a young adult novel with more focus on solving a mystery and navigating friendships and school pressures than romance. Oh, there's still romance--it's in the title! I am rooting for all the characters in this novel. They feel real, relatable (I'm Georgia), nuanced. Plus the snappy dialogue and surprising depth that we've come to expect in McQuiston's novels. Natalie Naudus also narrated One Last Stop, so it's fun to hear her again. She does great voices, and a subtle Southern accent when called for.”

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

Wayfarers: Book #1

By Becky Chambers
Narrated by: Rachel Dulude
Length: 14 hours 23 minutes

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

“This gripping, diverse novel, set well after Earth's residents have scattered to Mars, other planets, and itinerant spacecraft, is as scientifically and sociopolitically plausible as any science fiction I've ever read or listened to. The characters, from a variety of alien species along with AI, have wide-ranging journeys that speak to our current reality and to issues of immigration, xenophobia, colonization, economic class, technological advancement, environmentalism, and more. The members of one species are all born female and becomes male later on, of another all use "they" pronouns, and of another are free with their touch and affection and find amusement in human hangups about touch. In the midst of all this complex representation emerges a story that stands alone as cohesive, meaningful, and powerful.”

Skye Falling

A Novel

By Mia McKenzie
Narrated by: Bahni Turpin
Length: 11 hours 38 minutes

Skye Falling

“I absolutely loved this debut novel by Mia McKenzie, featuring Skye, a Black queer 30-something woman returning to her hometown (Philly). Skye is an inconsiderate, commitment-phobe with an utterly relate-able knack for running away from her problems and re-writing history. Some might say she's unlikeable but I'll admit I was easily disarmed by her scorching wit and endearing charm. With a great cast of supporting characters, Skye Falling was a laugh out loud funny tale of a woman forced to hold herself accountable, rethink her "always on the go" lifestyle and maybe fall in love in the process.”
