Velvet Was the Night

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Narrated by: Gisela Chípe
Length: 9 hours 51 minutes

Velvet Was the Night

“Thoroughly entertaining. Once again, Silvia Moreno-Garcia does a wonderful job capturing the genre she is writing for. The plot, the pacing, the characters are all what they should be for good noir fiction. Add to that, the unique setting of Mexico City post Corpus Christi Massacre and during the Dirty War, and it's also educational! Excellent reading by Gisela Chipe.”

Beautiful World, Where Are You

A Novel

By Sally Rooney
Narrated by: Aoife McMahon
Length: 10 hours 3 minutes

If you enjoyed Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, then you’ll love Beautiful World, Where Are You.

“I think I've found my preferred format of Rooney—the audiobook. Aoife McMahon narrates all three of Rooney's works and is super consistent. She makes every book unique and her voice is super compelling. Rooney's characters always frustrate me but there is something about her writing and her imperfect characters that hooks me every time. Alice and Eileen are two best friends who are each embarking on different relationships and are at different points of their personal and romantic lives. I had a hard time telling them apart at first (the downside of a single narrator on a multi-perspective book) but once I got them straight, I quite enjoyed this novel the touches on their lives on the brink of the pandemic. Like all of Rooney's twenty-something main characters, you want to slap them sometimes... or all the time but that's kind of why I like it? Perhaps these books aren't for everyone but I highly encourage you to try them in different formats and maybe you too will learn to like Rooney's writing as it shines in audiobook format!”

The Secret Keeper of Jaipur

The Jaipur Trilogy: Book #2

By Alka Joshi
Narrated by: Sneha Mathan, Ariyan Kassam & Deepa Samuel
Length: 11 hours 8 minutes

The Secret Keeper of Jaipur

“At the grand opening of the Royal Jewel Cinema there are secrets left untold. Secrets about adoptions that happened, and those that didn't. Secrets about marriages arranged to build dynasties and those to save face. And a man who was a nobody as a boy is going by a different name, and some recognize him and others either don't or choose not to. By the end of the first chapter there's a surprising collapse, and chapter two changes to the voice of the widow of a shepherd. The third narrator, the wife of a doctor, was the primary in Alka Joshi's first book, The Henna Artist, which I have not read but now want to. In the last few months I've read a number of books that are not my typical genre or setting. This glimpse into India, with not a single white character in the whole of the book, made me want to see and touch all the fabrics, eat all the foods, and peep into these amazing intertwined lives to see what lies beneath the surface. ”

Rise to the Sun

By Leah Johnson
Narrated by: Lexi Underwood & Alaska Jackson
Length: 7 hours 33 minutes

Rise to the Sun

“Leah Johnson is officially an auto-buy for me. I honest to goodness could not stop marking this book, nor did I realize just how much I needed it. From the off, Toni and Olivia's journeys were some sort of catharsis, healing my soul even after only two chapters. By the end, my eyes were run over and my cheeks were salty. This one's for the musicians. This one's for everyone who's been missing the way live music grabs you and won't let go. This one's for the lonely-hearted and those who've been told they're too big. And believe me when I say, you're going to want to shed tears while listening too.”

Falling

A Novel

By T. J. Newman
Narrated by: Steven Weber
Length: 8 hours 26 minutes

Falling

Falling is the literary thriller that gets your heart racing and causes you to be both contemplative and terrified at the same time. TJ Newman, a former indie bookseller and a former flight attendant, knows how to tell a story. She writes with a remarkable turn of phrase and with insider knowledge of what can happen in an airplane. It's always a great day when an indie bookseller publishes a book. It's an extremely great day when the book is a fantastic page-turner.”
