While Justice Sleeps

A Novel

By Stacey Abrams
Narrated by: Adenrele Ojo & Stacey Abrams
Length: 14 hours 54 minutes

While Justice Sleeps

“From the first pages, this crime novel from author/activist Stacey Abrams drew me into the world of the Supreme Court (and chess!) and the seedy underbelly of the U.S. government. This race through the streets of Washington, DC, also contains a deeply satisfying ending that I won’t give away.”

Mary Jane

A Novel

By Jessica Anya Blau

Mary Jane

“Mary Jane, oh, Mary Jane... You'll be singing along too, I promise you, to the expert and pitch-perfect audio performed by Caitlin Kinnunen, best known for playing Emma Nolan in the musical The Prom, for which she was nominated for a Tony Award. This tragicomic novel by Jessica Anya Blau was so fabulous, so fresh yet so nostalgic, it's absolutely the book I will be recommending for anyone's beach read. The dialogue was superb, the characters were loveable, the time period—1970s!!—was the best I loved it!”

The Plot

By Jean Hanff Korelitz
Narrated by: Kirby Heyborne
Length: 10 hours 43 minutes

The Plot

“A novel within a novel, a plot within a plot, a very realistic and informative look at authors, how they write, how they think, and how they try to be faithful to what they believe: that a good story must be told, even if it is not really yours to tell. Jake Finch Bonner genuinely believes that a story idea can not be stolen–after all there are only so many plots and they have been told repeatedly by many authors. It is how you tell the story, the words you use and the feelings you bring forth that make it the authors. However, when Jake, after years of struggling to get another book published writes a huge bestseller there is someone out in the world who does not think an author has the right to write anyone else’s story. What starts out as a slow but methodical look at Jake’s approach to being an author, his dreams, his aspirations and his beliefs, turns into a fast-paced story about what a person will do to keep their secrets and to punish someone who they think stole a story that he had no right to write.”

The House of Always

A Chorus of Dragons: Book #4

By Jenn Lyons
Narrated by: Lauren Fortgang & Vikas Adam
Length: 26 hours 53 minutes

The House of Always

“I am always so excited when I see the next bit of this series be announced! I have become so attached to these characters and that is impressive given the size of the cast now that we are at book 4! I have seen plenty of series stumble as the cast became unwieldy and awkward and inevitably had a harder time making the voices distinct and the characters vibrant. I am happy to say that this book managed that hurdle like it wasn't even there. Managing the story from such a cliffhanger of an ending and keeping the tension going The House of Always was interesting in that it almost felt like a bottle episode of a TV show, with that trademark building of tension and uncertainty about the outcome. Expanding the POV even further from the previous books while keeping the main narrative framing device of these events having been compiled and written down I could not stop myself from reading 'Just one more chapter.' I don't want to spoil anything but I left the book quite satisfied with where we are but wanting very badly for the story to continue and to get my hands on the next book. I highly recommend this to fans of the series, it just keeps getting better!”
