Iron Hearted Violet

By Kelly Barnhill
Narrated by Simon Vance /  7 hours 19 minutes

Iron Hearted Violet

“Violet is not like other princesses. She’s a plain child with asymmetrical features, unruly hair, and a rough-around-the-edges personality to match. While exploring the ever-changing castle, she and her only friend, Demetrius, come across a forbidden story in a hidden library and are exposed to the insidious whispering of the Nybbas — an old god who has been imprisoned in their world. And when Violet’s life starts to fall apart around her, she uses the Nybbas’s power to transform herself, believing herself to blame for the kingdom’s recent tragedies for lacking the beauty of a “real princess.” But she soon discovers that beauty is not all it’s cracked up to be, and Violet devotes herself to ending the Nybbas’s scheming before the kingdom tears itself apart. Told from the perspective of the court storyteller, the narration pops with personality and poetry while still being accessible for a younger audience. Kelly Barnhill has crafted a fine fairytale that turns tropes on their head, with important lessons about the perils of unrealistic beauty standards and the power of love.”

What We Talk About When We Talk About Books

The History and Future of Reading
By Leah Price
Narrated by Elisabeth Rodgers /  5 hours 35 minutes

What We Talk About When We Talk About Books

“ What We Talk About When We Talk About Books healed some real cracks in my relationship with reading, and reinforced my love and optimism for the written word. Book historian Leah Price guides you through all the myths, melodrama, and baggage modern culture is carrying around about books. Through a humorous and curiosity-filled tour of book history, she unpacks why so many of us feel so much pressure to read the right things in the right way, and why we've come to feel like doing so would whip our brains into shape and make us into zen, hyper-focused superhumans. Price's measured take on things made me feel like it's all going to be okay. Elisabeth Rodgers' cool, clear voice was the perfect narration.”

Talking to Strangers

What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know
By Malcolm Gladwell
Narrated by Malcolm Gladwell /  8 hours 42 minutes

Talking to Strangers

“This is an audio experience. Malcolm Gladwell talks about it a bit in the beginning. He chose to use audio recordings of interviews, etc., wherever available instead of just reading the quotes himself. There’s music spattered throughout. It’s kind of a book/podcast. It is not just a direct reading of the text. Also, Malcolm Gladwell has a soothing voice but covers some unsettling topics, so you can definitely listen to this one and not fall asleep. I won’t say I enjoyed this book, because how can you enjoy something that talks about all the unpleasant side effects of misinterpreting interactions with strangers? But it was incredibly interesting. We hear about what went wrong with Amanda Knox, the Brock Turner trial, and Sandra Bland, amidst many other examples. I love books like this that examine psychology through real life things. I definitely feel like I learned something from Talking to Strangers, and for me, that’s really the best way to judge a nonfiction title.”

The Ten Thousand Doors of January

By Alix E. Harrow
Narrated by January LaVoy /  12 hours 20 minutes

The Ten Thousand Doors of January

“I read The Ten Thousand Doors of January with my eyes and my ears... both were literary nirvana experiences. Alix E. Harrow's tale of a young girl who finds a mysterious book that tells of doors that lead to fantastical worlds reminded me of what story telling is all about. I was transported to the early 1900's and the life of January Scaller, a ward of wealthy Mr. Locke. Locke employs January's father to explore for fine artifacts that he collects. As January's father goes missing, she realizes that she has the power to write her own destiny. Is she brave enough to do it? In my opinion this book will appeal to both adult and young adult audiences. It speaks of love across time and place, mystery & intrigue, fantastical adventures, race and class. I am forever a fan of narrator January LaVoy. She made Alix E. Harrow's beautifully crafted story telling come alive! ”

Running with Sherman

The Donkey with the Heart of a Hero
By Christopher McDougall
Narrated by Christopher McDougall /  12 hours 12 minutes

Running with Sherman

Running With Sherman is one of those special books that just makes you happy. Sherman, an abused donkey adopted by Christopher McDougall and family, needs a task, and that task turns out to be joining the World Championship of burro running in Colorado. In his inimitably engaging style, McDougall has taken the best of his two previous books—the personal stories of Born to Run and the history from Natural Born Heroes—and created the most enjoyable book I’ve read this year. I laughed, I got teary, I smiled a lot. Sherman is my new hero!”

Highfire

A Novel
By Eoin Colfer
Narrated by Johnny Heller /  9 hours 19 minutes

Highfire

“This dragon protagonist is far past the castle-sieging town-razing days of yore. Instead he’s huddled up in the Louisiana Bayou, distracting himself with vodka and Netflix to avoid the pesky cameras (and gunfire) of modern humans. But life changes when a local boy stumbles into trouble - and the dragon’s Lay-Z-Boy. The audiobook adds a delightful layer with nuanced Southern accents for each character, steeping the reader fully in its strange genre-bending world. Full of wit, shenanigans, and heart, this book is both the strangest and most fun I’ve read in a while.”

They Went Left

By Monica Hesse
Narrated by Caitlin Davies /  9 hours 6 minutes

They Went Left

“Zonia, a Jewish teenager newly released from a Nazi concentration camp, faces the extended suffering of displaced holocaust survivors. She is challenged with trying to regain health in her emaciated body and find her lost brother while dealing with her overwhelming grief, loss and anger. This story covers several genres: historic, mystery and romance with surprise twists along the way. The author’s narrative at the end of the novel, explaining her extensive research and passion to tell the story, adds authenticity and a personal touch to the audio. As more teachers combine literature with the teaching of history in order to enhance both subjects for modern teens, this book would be a welcome addition to the holocaust/lit curriculum. And for those of us who just love good historical fiction with a bit of mystery and romance, this one is a winner.”

Oona Out of Order

A Novel
By Margarita Montimore
Narrated by Brittany Pressley /  11 hours 29 minutes

Oona Out of Order

“Oona Lockhart has been cursed (or blessed) with a magical wrinkle in time that has her leaping forward and back through the years. Inside she is aging chronologically, but on the outside, Oona is sometimes 51, 30, or 26 years old. A life lived out of order, however, can be just as valid as a life lived forward. Surprising, bittersweet, and filled with love, Oona discovers both the wisdom of age and the spontaneity of youth. Don’t miss out on what is sure to be the most enchanted reading experience of 2020.”
