The Unsinkable Greta James

A Novel

By Jennifer E. Smith
Narrated by: Mae Whitman
Length: 8 hours 15 minutes

The Unsinkable Greta James

The Unsinkable Greta James by Jennifer E. Smith is just plain AWESOME! Greta is a rising indie musician who finds herself on an Alaskan cruise with her dad after her mom dies unexpectedly, she splits with her music producer boyfriend, and had a major meltdown at her last public appearance three months prior. Greta needs a reset. She has to decide what is most important to her-whether she really can make her dreams come true. Add in Ben, the visiting Jack London scholar, and you have a novel with the perfect combo of an unexpected romance and family angst. Pick up your copy today-trust me, you’ll thank me.”

The Latecomer

A Novel

By Jean Hanff Korelitz
Narrated by: Julia Whelan
Length: 16 hours 19 minutes

The Latecomer

The Latecomer is a story about the most dysfunctional family you will ever meet. Salo and his triplets can not relate at all to each other or to strangers and each has a weird obsession that others find hard to understand. Salo at least has a reason for his behavior… a tragic accident during college, for which he has never forgiven himself. Joanna is so preoccupied with trying to create the perfect family that she thinks should exist that she also is totally unconnected to the real world. I loved listening to each character's internal dialogue when faced with something new or unexpected. I normally do not like overly descriptive writing or lots of unnecessary dialogue but their conversations with themselves are hysterical and very educational and enlightening. This, for me, was a wonderful break from the mysteries and thrillers I normally read. The ending to this epic family saga, which included surprises for the reader and most of the main characters, was very powerful and quite satisfying.”

Today Will Be Different

By Maria Semple
Narrated by: Kathleen Wilhoite
Length: 6 hours 28 minutes

Today Will Be Different

“With her signature writing style and matter-of-fact and honest tone, Semple can make me laugh while reading like no one else can. Truth be told, there's not much to the plot here other than Eleanor decides today will be different and, of course, everything that could possibly go wrong does go wrong. However, the simplicity of the plot is what makes this book a wonderful read for all of us who don't have it together, who forget things, and who sometimes just plain lose their cool.”

A Novel

By Rebecca Serle

One Italian Summer

“This book was the perfect read that I finished with happy tears streaming down my face. Rebecca Serle’s writing is beautiful and gripping, and I will now read everything she writes. One Italian Summer has a hint of magical realism with time-travel in the premise. Katy and Adam are both so relatable I found myself wishing I was friends with both of them. This book is a love letter to motherhood, overcoming grief, and rekindling lost love. This book also helped feed my wanderlust and made me want to revisit Italy as soon as possible. Serle paints a pictures of Italy so beautifully that I could see it for myself and it felt as though I was transported for a day. This story will make you crave to learn more about your parents’ past and will allow you to look at every relationship with fresh eyes. ”
