The Futures

By: Anna Pitoniak
Narrated by: Sarah Mollo-Christensen
Length: 11 hours 29 minutes

“I’m a sucker for the “moving-to-the-big-city-after-university” subgenre of literary fiction, so The Futures has been firmly on my to-read list for months. It’s set in 2008 — an ominous time to be a hedge fund manager like Evan. What does it hold for him and Julia, his Yale girlfriend? If you want an indication of how good this book is: I could...

The Cranes Dance

By: Meg Howrey
Narrated by: Justine Eyre
Length: 11 hours 41 minutes

“This book is a fascinating world into the world of dance, through the eyes of a jaded, cynical, aging (so, mid twenties maybe?) ballerina whose acerbic voice reflects this jadedness and cynicism so well. This was one of those unputdownable books – especially if you love a deep dive into the mind of a brilliantly drawn character. Bonus: the... Read more

The Light We Lost

Reese's Book Club (A Novel)

The Light We Lost: Book #1

By: Jill Santopolo
Narrated by: Jill Santopolo
Length: 7 hours 15 minutes

“As soon as I saw this book mentioned and compared to One Day, I leapt onto Netgalley to beg for an advance copy, which the good people at Penguin Random House granted me immediately. I knew I’d love it, and I was right: it’s a novel that explores that age-old dilemma of steady, comfortable, dependable, good-enough love, versus the explosive,... Read more
