My favorite books all have one thing in common: craft. Quality craftsmanship is the #1 thing that I look for, be it fiction or non-fiction, adult or juvenile. These books are not always narrative driven, but often feature characters or concepts that captivate me. With that in mind, here is a list of some of the books that I thoroughly enjoyed listening to!

My Murder

A Novel

By: Katie Williams
Narrated by: Rebecca Lowman
Length: 7 hours 52 minutes

“Whiplash plot twists and near-poetry descriptions keep readers clutching their headphones during this brainy summer blockbuster. The narrator's repetitions and elaborations, which at first feel unreliable, turn out to be... no, I can't tell you. No spoilers.
