Long Way Down

By Jason Reynolds
Narrated by: Jason Reynolds
Length: 1 hours 43 minutes

Long Way Down

“One of the best parts of listening to this audiobook was getting to hear Jason Reynolds breathe further life into the heartbreaking words he wrote. I don't doubt the emotion would have been evident in the text, but as he said in the interview at the end of the audio, only he knew the right beats in order to make sure his message wasn't lost. I highly recommend listening if you get a chance. ”

An Enchantment of Ravens

By Margaret Rogerson
Narrated by: Julia Whelan
Length: 8 hours 45 minutes

An Enchantment of Ravens

“I was drawn to this book the moment I saw the cover. And like a lot of beautiful, anticipated reads, I hoarded it away like a book dragon. 2020 might be a terrible, bad, no good year, but it is the year I’ve decided to focus on my TBR shelves by listening to all the books on audio. And An Enchantment of Ravens is a gorgeous book made even more beautiful by the audiobook performance by Julia Whelan! I loved Rogerson’s take of the Fair Folk, the rules of magic, the romance between the Prince of the Autumn Court and the portrait artist Isobel. Isobel is such a great character- clever and resourceful enough to go up against dangerous fae. And Rook? It was love at first transformation from a bird to a hot prince (even when he looks like an old monster). I think I’ve found another favorite author! ”
