We Were Dreamers

An Immigrant Superhero Origin Story

By Simu Liu
Narrated by: Simu Liu
Length: 8 hours 10 minutes

We Were Dreamers

“This was an excellent memoir. I listened to this and Simu Liu, not surprisingly, is a wonderful narrator. Filled with humor, emotion and struggles, Simu (and his family) are really honest about their tumultuous (and abusive) relationship before Simu finished high school. Simu dives into his parents' backgrounds and with this knowledge, it helps him to forgive and understand his parents. He's an incredibly hard worker and it was so much fun to listen to him succeed in a field that he clearly loves. Readers of Trevor Noah, Gabrielle Union, Ali Wong and Constance Wu will really enjoy this.”

Notes on an Execution

A Novel

By Danya Kukafka
Narrated by: Mozhan Marno & Jim Meskimen
Length: 9 hours 42 minutes

Notes on an Execution

Notes on an Execution flows like a quiet river coming to a waterfall — lyrical, tense, and quietly explosive. This book is full of compassion for each character, even the killer to be executed. Kukafka has outdone herself with this book.”

A Memoir

By Michelle Zauner
Narrated by: Michelle Zauner
Length: 7 hours 22 minutes

Crying in H Mart

“I was struck by just how much I loved this book for how it walks through grief not as a way to leave it behind, but as a way to remember its exact shape. I’m grateful for its funny, self-deprecating, and wise observations, and for its difficult beauty.”

By Emily Henry

One of the Good Ones

By Maika Moulite & Maritza Moulite
Narrated by: Bahni Turpin, Jordan Cobb & Carolyn Smith
Length: 9 hours 49 minutes

One of the Good Ones

“I am SPEECHLESS. I am still processing. But what I do know, without a doubt, is that One of the Good Ones is a must-read, a beautiful gut punch by a sister duo that is poised to take the publishing world by storm. Maika and Maritza manage to pack so much into so little, each moment its own universe, tackling the enormously difficult topics of systemic racism, police brutality, coming out to religious parents, epigenetics, and grief. The multiple perspectives across multiple timelines are simply perfect, lending so much to the greater story, and mystery(! I never saw that twist coming), keeping you reading into the early hours. But amidst the greater discussions of dismantling the institutions that uphold respectability above all else, there is so much joy too. There is hope. There is friendship that crosses oceans (or countries as the case may be). There is a road to recovery. And that left me with the best kind of tears in my eyes.”
