The Second Home

A Novel
By Christina Clancy
Narrated by Tavia Gilbert /  12 hours 22 minutes

The Second Home

“Anne and Poppy are sisters who have taken very different roads in life. Growing up in Wisconsin, they enjoyed their Summers at their run-down cottage on the Cape with their adoring parents. When they were in their teens, their parents adopted a sixteen-year-old named Michael. For some time the family lived in peaceful harmony until a life-changing event occurred. Years later, after their parent's tragic death, the sisters reunite at the cottage. They search the house for a will. The sisters and Michael have been estranged for many years due to a misunderstanding. Michael then reenters the picture. This debut novel is beautifully written and touches on many aspects of love - parental, sibling, and last but not least, undying love. The narrator gives an outstanding performance and reads with heart and soul.”

Pizza Girl

A Novel
By Jean Kyoung Frazier
Narrated by Jeena Yi /  5 hours 33 minutes

Pizza Girl

“Jean Kyoung Frazier’s Pizza Girl breathes honesty into narratives surrounding pregnancy and motherhood, and faces the desperate ambivalence that often accompanies these experiences but is left unspoken. We explore this through characters who cling to one another in an attempt to escape the disappointment and stresses of their own personal lives. Pizza Girl presents us with an important sentiment: You cannot outrun the fact that the people who created you will always be a part of you to some degree or another. But you can work to grasp the ways in which you manifest that into who you are as an individual.”

Something to Talk About

By Meryl Wilsner
Narrated by Jorjeana Marie & Xe Sands /  9 hours 6 minutes

Something to Talk About

Something to Talk About is an incredible debut about a Hollywood showrunner, Jo, and her assistant, Emma, who realize the tabloids may be correct in thinking there is something romantic between the two of them. The slowest of slow-burn romances in the best possible way, Something to Talk About touches on the #MeToo movement, the meaning of consent, and what it means to be a powerful woman in Hollywood.”

You Exist Too Much

A Novel
By Zaina Arafat
Narrated by Zehra Jane Naqvi /  7 hours 53 minutes

You Exist Too Much

“Zaina Arafat’s You Exist Too Much is one of my favorite books of the year. This debut novel blew me away. Arafat’s narrator is confident in her vulnerability; her desire to be seen and understood is visceral and uncomfortably familiar. The intoxication of unrequited love and the disconcerting feeling that can accompany settling down are recognizable, yet in Arafat’s capable hands, I was transported. This book is for anyone who has struggled to fit into society’s neat boxes, who has been frustrated when emotions don’t follow a logical path, or who has been disappointed to find that sometimes the love of others isn’t enough.”

Red Dress in Black and White

A novel
By Elliot Ackerman
Narrated by Maggi-Meg Reed /  10 hours 20 minutes

Red Dress in Black and White

“Over the latter half of the past decade, Elliot Ackerman has established himself as one of the great forces in modern literature. His novels and essays have provided uncommon depth of understanding of a world in constant violent conflict, all written with a superb command of language. His newest novel once again delves into a world of corruption and deception, but this is done at a much more personal level as the crisis of a marriage in Istanbul reflects the underlying rot of society. Set in the course of one day and developed through flashbacks, the reader learns the toll on individuals and society in a world of deceit.”

Strong female relationships take the lead as Ginny strives to protect her daughter and reckons with her past. Highly recommend.”

A Taste of Sage

A Novel
By Yaffa S. Santos
Narrated by Inés del Castillo & Jonathan Todd Ross /  7 hours 39 minutes

A Taste of Sage

“This book is a tasty, delicious treat! When you mix delicious food and hate-to-love romance in a book, you instantly have me hooked. Lumi Santana is a chef with the gift of synesthesia: She can feel a person’s emotions just by tasting their cooking. When she opens a restaurant and it fails, she takes a sous chef position at a French restaurant with Julien Dax, a celebrated chef known for his good looks but bad attitude. Lumi can’t stand Julien but tastes his cooking because it looks so irresistible, and when she’s overcome with intense emotions she wonders if she wants more. If you are looking for something that’s fun and tasty and will test your senses, you will enjoy this book.”

Shakespeare for Squirrels

A Novel
By Christopher Moore
Narrated by Euan Morton /  8 hours 48 minutes

Shakespeare for Squirrels

“This is a crazy funny new take on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream that will have you laughing out loud and getting goofy looks from the other people in the coffee shop. Christopher Moore is always entertaining, and this book is no exception — you will enjoy it from the first sentence to the very last. And, yes, there are squirrels in the story!”

The Lost Diary of Venice

A Novel
By Margaux DeRoux
Narrated by Lisa Flanagan /  11 hours 29 minutes

The Lost Diary of Venice

“This narrative contains two different love stories, centuries apart, that are connected by both art and ancestry. It’s hard to say which I preferred: the modern tale of an almost-reclusive book restorer and an artist client unhappy in his marriage, or the story from Renaissance Venice of the client’s ancestor, a respected artist and a beautiful courtesan to one of the city’s leading luminaries. Woven together, they form an intriguing tapestry of love, family, history, and art.”

Weird but Normal

Essays
By Mia Mercado
Narrated by Mia Mercado /  6 hours 3 minutes

Weird but Normal

“Mia Mercado's comedic timing is evident as she voices the alternations of her text. Shifting adeptly between dead honest coverage of micro-aggressions and lively portrayals of her pup; between depictions of vocational doldrums and a litany of relationship discoveries, between feminist self-love and self-deprecating humor, Mercado's range is refreshing and impressive.”

Death in Her Hands

A Novel
By Ottessa Moshfegh
Narrated by Ann Marie Lee /  7 hours 50 minutes

Death in Her Hands

“Ottessa Moshfegh is a modern-day Camus. A woman finds a note in the woods that proclaims someone is dead. Murdered, in fact. She investigates between dog walks and early evening naps but soon facts, memories, and suppositions entwine and overlap until the simple act of asking a question can unravel the thread of an entire life. Ponderous, violent, forgetful, and deft, Death in Her Hands is a genre-bender that teases you into asking, Is this noir? Horror? A whacked-out farce? Or a sly literary trick? I’ll tell you what it is — absolutely brilliant.”

All Adults Here

A Novel
By Emma Straub
Narrated by Emily Rankin /  11 hours 4 minutes

All Adults Here

“The Strick family: dysfunctional people just trying to navigate life. Astrid is a quirky, uptight mother of three adult children. She recently witnessed a woman get hit by a bus, triggering her to explore her life and act before it's too late. Meanwhile, her three children Porter, Nicky & Elliot are making mistakes in their own lives. All Adults Here explores friendships, family, morality, sexuality and most importantly love. I always enjoy a book with some family dysfunction, because whose family isn't a little dysfunctional? Listening to this book was pretty entertaining and found myself chuckling throughout. This book covered many topics without feeling pushy or forced. The characters came off like a real family, that should be on a sitcom. The growth of the family was really well thought out. This book was a win for me, and I will be recommending it to all of my dysfunctional friends.”

Simon the Fiddler

A Novel
By Paulette Jiles
Narrated by Grover Gardner /  11 hours 39 minutes

Simon the Fiddler

“Simon Boudlin’s passion is to be the best fiddle player there is, beholden to no one and following his muse wherever it takes him. But when he meets the beautiful Doris Aherne, his plans change. Paulette Jiles once again captures the great promise and sweeping beauty of the Texas frontier in cinematic prose as poetic and lyrical as the tunes that pour forth from the fiddler himself. Simon joins that great pantheon of strivers for a better life, and readers will root for him every step of the way. Fans of News of the World can rejoice — with Simon the Fiddler, Jiles has done it again!”

Sea Wife

A novel
By Amity Gaige
Narrated by Emily Eiden, Cassandra Campbell & Will Damron /  9 hours 45 minutes

Sea Wife

“Wherever you go, your anxieties go with you — even (or especially) if you go live on a boat to sail the world with your spouse and small children. Nothing will ever be the same for Juliet, Michael, and their family after their harrowing year at sea, and no reader will be the same after reading this taut, brilliant novel. I can’t stop thinking about it.”

The Knockout Queen

A novel
By Rufi Thorpe
Narrated by Michael Crouch /  10 hours 3 minutes

The Knockout Queen

“To say I admire The Knockout Queen feels inadequate, though I do admire a great deal of it: its voice, depth, structure — you name it. But it’s more honest just to say I love The Knockout Queen; I loved reading it, I felt involved in it, and, finally, I was so moved by its ending. This is an epic tale of friendship, one where the magnitude sneaks up on you quietly — but when it strikes home, it rings so brilliantly true.”

Pretty Things

A Novel
By Janelle Brown
Narrated by Julia Whelan, Lauren Fortgang & Hillary Huber /  16 hours 6 minutes

Pretty Things

“Nina Ross is a beautiful grifter with an axe to grind. After years of conning billionaires to let her into their mansions and then robbing them blind, she and her Irish beau go after a really big fish on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Their mark is the Leibling Family who owns a sprawling estate dating back to the 1800's. Their mansion, dubbed Stonehaven, is filled with lovely valuable antiques. But Nina has her sights set on somehow finagling her way into the heart of the family and into the heart of the house where a safe sits that reputedly contains millions and millions of dollars. Nina needs the money to pay for her mother's ongoing hospital bills, but she also wants to make the Leibling family hurt. She has a history with the family and especially with their youngest son, Benny, who was Nina's first real love. The family drove Nina away because she was deemed not good enough for the scion of this powerful family, and now she's back with a fury with revenge on her mind.”

Braised Pork

By An Yu
Narrated by Vera Chok /  5 hours 15 minutes

Braised Pork

“An astonishing look at a new widow’s attempt to make sense of her husband’s death and her newfound independence, through which she rediscovers her love of painting, forms new and profound bonds, rekindles previously dormant familial relationships, and ultimately finds peace in uncertainty. Set in Beijing and Tibet, Braised Pork is a poetic reflection on life and all of its meandering, unpredictable messiness.”
