The Hate U Give
“This bestselling, powerful young adult novel about social justice and one teen girl's effort to fight for what is right, will leave you breathless. The narration by Bahni Turpin is hands down the best I've ever heard. This is such an important book it should be required reading for life in general. Or listening. Definitely listening.”Kristen, Tattered Cover
The Poet X
“Getting to listen to the author herself read her poetry, which are clearly a testament to the spoken word and the art of slam, is absolutely the best way to devour this novel-in-verse. Acevedo puts everything into her words, and no one else could do them justice the way she does herself. Despite possible age/cultural/religious differences, any listener will immediately relate to this teenage girl desperately trying to both find herself and her voice, and live up to her family's expectations.”Amber, Quail Ridge Books
Monday's Not Coming
“My heart ached as the teenaged protagonist Claudia struggled to make sense of why her best friend Monday is simply gone. As Claudia reaches out to peers and adults again and again, you can feel her frustration with things out of her control. The actor on the audio book was a perfect choice to narrate. The book serves as an important reminder that some adolescents are dealing with chronic or extreme circumstances that have lasting impact.”Carol, Bank Square Books

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 power of this story is a fire that will linger for a long time.”Hilary Kotecki, The Doylestown & Lahaska Bookshops

“Wow! Everybody should read this book. A stunning memoir about a devastating subject. It was eye opening, gut wrenching, powerful and brave. Chanel Miller writes with such honesty and vulnerability–I immediately felt that I knew her and she had me walking in her shoes throughout the entire book. I’m still reeling from the roller coaster of emotions but ultimately I was left feeling hopeful and changed. A great audiobook read by author. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️”Leah, Aesop's Fable

Stay Sexy & Don't Get Murdered
The Definitive How-To Guide
“I discovered MFM immediately after the book was released. I listened to the first episode and knew right away that I needed to read the book. Karen & Georgia's easy, casual friendship and dark humor were right up my alley. I quickly finished the book (which I found both touching and hilarious) and kept working my way through old episodes of the podcast. While I enjoyed the book, I realized that I had become so accustomed to listening to the podcast, I actually wanted to re-read the book, this time in audio form (a format that I do not usually dabble in.) Getting to hear the book material straight from the authors' mouths was delightful and just felt right after becoming so familiar with their other audio work.”Leslie, A Likely Story
His & Hers
“Following a murder in her hometown, Anna Andrews is drawn back to cover the case in order to show her bosses at the network that she's got what it takes to be at the news desk. Things get complicated quickly as her ex, Detective Jack Harper, is the lead investigator. As the bodies start piling up, Feeney switches narrators between Anna, Jack, and the mystery killer. Plot twists, secrets and clues are laid out carefully by the author. I was fully enthralled with the voices narrating this title, and the audio version was very compelling.”Jessica, BookBar

I'm Thinking of Ending Things
“With his debut novel, Reid sets an extremely high bar for all future psychological thrillers. The entire story takes place in little over 24 hours as Jake and his girlfriend travel to meet and have dinner with his parents. Narrated by the unnamed girlfriend, something unsettling surfaces early and builds with the passage of every page. Readers will become riveted, reading faster and faster as the 'unsettling' becomes frightening, and then terrifying.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
“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.

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

With its Maui resort setting, charismatic characters, swoon-worthy romance, and sense of humor, this story pulled me in and took me along for a thoroughly enjoyable escape.”Sandy Scott, The Galaxy Bookshop
