Lucy by the Sea
“I’ve read quite a few pandemic books in the last year, but this one stands out. Strout has produced a meditation on memory as much as a character study as Lucy, William, and their neighbors grapple with the pandemic and political divides.”Emily Crowe, An Unlikely Story

The Matchmaker's Gift
"Eva Kaminsky and Gabra Zackman gloriously perform this charming dual-timeline audiobook." - AudioFile Magazine
Lynda Cohen Loigman's The Matchmaker's Gift is a heartwarming story of two extraordinary women from two different eras who defy expectations to realize their unique talent of seeing soulmates in the most unexpected places.
“This is an incredibly powerful story that I think everyone should read. Told from the perspective of two different characters, who despite being at different stages in their lives, are trying to figure out who they are. It examines the traumas that we experience in life, how we process those (or don't), and how they shape us. It looks at who we know ourselves to be, how we honor that (or don't), and the strength it takes to truly be yourself. The people that read the two different narrators are perfectly cast, and really add to the impact and experience of the story for the listener. I don't think that it is possible to read this book and not come away changed in the best ways. I believe that if everyone read this, the world would be a much more empathetic place.”Allie, Oblong Books

Klara and the Sun
“When I read Ishiguo's work, I feel as if a veil has been lifted, and suddenly the world—or range—of humanness, and all it's uncomfortable possibilities, are clear. I'm so grateful for his extraordinary talents and ability to manifest new understandings inside the mind this reader. Whether it's the source of human emotion, the impact of memory, the grappling of regret, or simply the purpose of human life, I finish his books with greater insight into the scope of the living. Klara is no different—an inhuman character who in one almost childlike voice, reveals the boundaries between human and inhuman, between a future and obsolescence, between the bonds and boundaries of love. Thank you Mr. Ishiguro ~ again.”Cassie, Roundabout Books
“Dinosaurs is a book that will leave you thinking. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it, and will be buying a print copy to go back and read it again to fully absorb it. Millet is onto something here. I don’t quite know what it is, but I’m hooked.”Rae, Titcomb's Bookshop

Love on the Brain
“I am absolutely loving Ali Hazelwood's 'stem' novels, and I think this one is my favorite. Not only does it take place in one of my favorite environments (NASA!!!!!) but the romance in this was so, so good.….and the smut of course. But all of that aside, this was super cute and definitely a must read if you enjoyed The Love Hypothesis.”Quinnell, Annie Bloom's Books
