The Right Swipe
By Alisha Rai
Narrated by Summer Morton & Brian Pallino / 10 hours 13 minutes
“With a diverse cast of emotionally mature yet complex characters, The Right Swipe delivers an interesting and fun modern love story. Rai’s finger is obviously on the pulse as she engages with current trends such as the #MeToo movement, and she does so masterfully while still creating a fun and enjoyable read. I wish all my beach-and-bath romance novels could be so well-written and inclusive.”Ellie Frank, 57th Street Books

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet
Wayfarers: Book #1
Narrated by Rachel Dulude / 14 hours 23 minutes
“This gripping, diverse novel, set well after Earth's residents have scattered to Mars, other planets, and itinerant spacecraft, is as scientifically and sociopolitically plausible as any science fiction I've ever read or listened to. The characters, from a variety of alien species along with AI, have wide-ranging journeys that speak to our current reality and to issues of immigration, xenophobia, colonization, economic class, technological advancement, environmentalism, and more. The members of one species are all born female and becomes male later on, of another all use "they" pronouns, and of another are free with their touch and affection and find amusement in human hangups about touch. In the midst of all this complex representation emerges a story that stands alone as cohesive, meaningful, and powerful.”Emily, A Seat at the Table Books
Clap When You Land
Narrated by Elizabeth Acevedo & Melania-Luisa Marte / 5 hours 32 minutes
“Clap When You Land is a story of sisterhood unlike any I've experienced before, with characters as multi-faceted as the places they come from. The free verse is rhythmic and pounding in all the right places, soft and lyrical in all the others. And for a story so rife with grief and struggle and anxiety and (the list goes on)... it's hopeful, but not without being real. Acevedo proves that tragedy can bring strangers together and make them family in ways both literal and metaphorical, and gives voice to the survivors whose pain outlasts the media coverage every time. This is one to be savored, and enjoyed by readers of all ages.”Britt, Second Star to the Right
The Themis Files: Book #1
Narrated by Various / 8 hours 27 minutes
“Sleeping Giants reads like a military dossier, interview after interview given with the serious intent of laying out the scientific tale of a discovered history that will change everyone's lives forever. At the age of 10, Rose falls through a hole in the ground and lands in a large metal hand that had been buried. Seventeen years later, she is on the research team that seeks answers to the relic's source and the meaning behind its existence. Is it a weapon? Is it a threat to humanity? Or is it simply a mystery that will remain unsolved? Whatever it is, readers will enjoy this Prometheus-like look into our distant past and the excitement of forecasting the potential future of the human race.”Linda Bond, Auntie's Bookstore
The Diviners: Book #1
By Libba Bray
Narrated by January LaVoy / 18 hours 12 minutes
“The glamorous, ghoulish 1920's New York City setting and spine-tingling thrills will draw you in from the start. However, it's the varied cast of characters - brassy, smart, complex, hilarious, flawed, and just so achingly REAL - that steal the show. I can't put this series down, and with each book it just gets better and better. The narrator, January LaVoy, is just brilliant and does justice to each and every character. She has amazing range!!”Lauren, Malaprop's Bookstore
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing
The Carls: Book #1
By Hank Green
Narrated by Kristen Sieh & Hank Green / 9 hours 24 minutes
“Brilliant! Hank Green has written an engrossing debut novel with a fun, vibrant, emotionally powerful and completely non sequitur plot. In a New York crosswalk, protagonist April May’s discovery of giant, sentient, maybe even alien omnipotent robots completely upends her life, both professionally and romantically. Through the eyes of this young, queer antihero and her robots, we see humanity in its modern context: how people love, connect, and create belief in a media landscape that sometimes degrades humanity.”a.c., Bookshop Santa Cruz

By Emily Henry
Narrated by Julia Whelan / 10 hours 12 minutes
“This was so much fun, both in story, and also to listen to. January is a romance writer, Gus a dark, literary fiction author, and in a fit of rivalry, they make a bet to write a book in each other's genre for the summer. Packed with emotional depth and plenty of hi-jinks, this is the perfect novel to lighten your heart while challenging your preconceived notions. I wanted to reread it right away!”Tildy, Belmont Books

Red, White & Royal Blue
Narrated by Ramon de Ocampo / 12 hours 15 minutes
“ To everyone who started telling me to read this book a year ago, I’m sorry. You were right - I loved it, unequivocally. The romance was sweet and gentle and real. But the humor put it over the top for me. I needed to laugh like that, desperately. And I did, a lot. A whole lot. But I also cried - because this book is pure, wholesome, and hopeful, even when it dipped into the darker places (with so much grace). Red, White, & Royal Blue gave my heart wings, and I'm still soaring. So to everyone who's still hesitant, don't be me - get on this train ASAP.”Britt, Second Star to the Right

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
Narrated by Alma Cuervo, Julia Whelan & Robin Miles / 12 hours 10 minutes
“Steeped in the glory of Hollywood when marriages were made for reasons other than love and could be slipped on and off like a fine dinner jacket, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo reveals the behind-the-scenes stories of lives full of hunger, self-pity, jealousy, and rage, as well as lost love. This is a story that could have been pulled from the pages of fan magazines of the '50s. It's so entertainingly real that you will be wondering why you can't remember the great star Evelyn Hugo and the movies she made famous. Read for pure pleasure, and you'll be tempted to play the game of, 'Who is this about, really?' What fun!”Linda Bond, Auntie's Bookstore

In the Dream House
Narrated by Carmen Maria Machado / 5 hours 28 minutes
“Raw. Powerful. Emotive. In the Dream House demands your attention as Machado digs deep into the darkness and comes out shining. In decisive, yet incredibly lyrical prose, she pulls apart the complexities of abuse in queer relationships, chronicling the ups and downs and outs of her own experience, unfortunately shared by so many others. Broken into easily digestible vignettes, In the Dream House screams no for those who aren't seen, aren't believed, and claws at the silence of generations. A beautiful, haunting, undeniably important piece of literature that refuses to be silenced.”Britt, Second Star to the Right
