Leech

By Hiron Ennes
Narrated by: Abigail Thorn
Length: 13 hours 7 minutes

Leech

“This was weird, creepy, and amazing. I didn’t know what to expect and at first wasn’t sure what was happening, or where or when it was happening, but I just went with it and am so glad I did. This is like nothing I’ve read before. But I would argue that it is a crazy mix-up of movies The Thing, Dune, The Shining, and Aliens with gothic novels like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. All good things!”

Fairy Tale

By Stephen King
Narrated by: Seth Numrich & Stephen King
Length: 24 hours 4 minutes

Fairy Tale

“This book is for anyone who grew up reading Tolkien (or Stephen King, for that matter) under the covers with a flashlight, for anyone who has longed to turn back time, and, most importantly, for anyone who has ever loved a dog.

The Book Eaters

By Sunyi Dean
Narrated by: Katie Erich
Length: 13 hours 27 minutes

The Book Eaters

The Book Eaters is my favorite kind of dark fantasy and possibly my favorite audiobook of 2022. It has so many layers to peel into; all dark and terrifyingly beautiful. Getting glimpses into Devon's childhood throughout the novel added so much agency to her character as an adult as she fights tooth and nail to have the chance to write her own narrative.”
