JELL-O Girls

A Family History

By Allie Rowbottom
Narrated by: Allie Rowbottom
Length: 7 hours 43 minutes

If you enjoyed The Electric Woman, then you’ll love JELL-O Girls.

“This is the second masterful memoir I've read in 2018 about the impact of the complicated and fascinating relationships between mothers and daughters (see also THE ELECTRIC WOMAN by Tessa Fontaine). Allie Rowbottom shares the history of her family's business (Jell-O) while also detailing the lives of generations of women oppressed by the patriarchy and dismissed as hysterical. Highly addictive, JELL-O GIRLS is the perfect book club pick, especially if you want to dive into the mother witch archetype and disrupting the patriarchy.”

Love & Other Disasters

By Anita Kelly
Narrated by: Lindsey Dorcus
Length: 10 hours 38 minutes

Love & Other Disasters

“I’m not a huge romance book person but I really enjoyed this one! This queer love story between a quirky self–taught cook and her seasoned (haha) nonbinary rival on a cooking show is incredibly charming and the perfect amount of hot, too. London’s quest to come out isn’t easy but ultimately validating. I hope to see more stories like theirs center-stage in romance and beyond!”

Girly Drinks

A World History of Women and Alcohol

By Mallory O'Meara
Narrated by: Mallory O'Meara
Length: 11 hours 29 minutes

If you enjoyed Broad Band, then you’ll love Girly Drinks.

“What! A! Book! As an avid nonfiction reader I don't say this lightly: Girly Drinks might be one of the best written 'untold stories' I've ever come across. O'Meara covers several centuries and nearly every continent in this sweeping history. Her tone is playful without dismissing the importance of her record-correcting work. Girly Drinks updated my understanding of numerous people, time periods, and beverage inventions. It's exceptional!”

By Michelle Zauner

From Scratch

A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home

By Tembi Locke
Narrated by: Tembi Locke
Length: 10 hours 17 minutes

From Scratch

“I just finished wiping away my last tear as I close the curtain on From Scratch, a brilliant, compelling memoir. Tembi Locke lost her larger-than-life Italian chef husband at an early age to cancer. The book is a love letter to him as well as to enchanting Sicily and its aromatic, tantalizing food. But more than anything, it is the most memorable and thoughtful gift that her daughter will ever receive. I highly recommend the audio version which is read by the author. From Scratch is one of the best memoirs that I have ever read and one of my top five best books that I read this Summer.”

Taste

My Life Through Food

By Stanley Tucci
Narrated by: Stanley Tucci
Length: 6 hours 50 minutes

Taste

“As a lover of food, I snacked my way through Taste: My Life Through Food, chuckled at Stanley Tucci's puns, and found myself adding his movies to my queue for a repeat screening. His ability to describe food, history, and food on sets was thorough, entertaining, and just plain fun. His passion for good food, family time, and forming lifetime friendships is inspirational. I have Julie and Julia playing now, and I'm adding ingredients to my grocery list to make Spaghetti Zucchine alla Nerano with zucchini from my garden. Oh yes!”
