Babel

Or the Necessity of Violence: An Arcane History of The Oxford Translators' Revolution

By R. F. Kuang
Narrated by: Chris Lew Kum Hoi & Billie Fulford-Brown
Length: TBA

Babel

“Finishing a book like this is equal parts pleasure and pain: pleasure in that reading something as striking and beautiful as this is everything a reader hopes to feel in a book juxtaposed by the pain of something beautiful ending and leaving these characters behind in the pages. There are few books that have brought tears to my eyes (I can still count them on one hand) but Kuang's Babel, or The Necessity of Violence is now numbered among them.”

Nona the Ninth

Locked Tomb: Book #3

By Tamsyn Muir
Narrated by: Moira Quirk
Length: TBA

Nona the Ninth

“My honest review of this book is basically inarticulate screaming, wailing, gnashing of teeth, rending of garments, etc. I've rarely in my adult life been so INTO a book series--I've re-read and re-listened to Gideon and Harrow multiple times, and Nona will soon join the rotation. These books are bonkers fun and I loved every wild and confusing and sweet and funny moment of Nona, and am eagerly awaiting Alecto! Very glad Nona got her own book--I love her with a similar depth of passion as I do Gideon and Harrow respectively. Remarkable. What the fuck is going ON??? I can't wait.”

Daisy Darker

A Novel

By Alice Feeney
Narrated by: Stephanie Racine
Length: 10 hours 53 minutes

Daisy Darker

“Alice Feeney’s novel feels familiar in that it pulls inspiration from veterans of the 'locked-room mysteries,' like Agatha Christie, while simultaneously bringing a fresh take to the genre. Full of twists, I was endlessly applauding myself for calling an event before it was revealed and finding myself shocked by the next.”

The Fortunes of Jaded Women

A Novel

By Carolyn Huynh
Narrated by: Vyvy Nguyen
Length: TBA

The Fortunes of Jaded Women

“The book starts with a curse, but evolves into a realistic and recognizable story of family dynamics. Longstanding disagreements and grudges keep three adult sisters from talking with each other, and from talking with their mother. The sisters' children, all female cousins who are scattered around the world, have sporadic contact with each other and little contact with their mothers or grandmother. This saga about a Vietnamese family takes us through all the past issues that led the group to today's issues, and ultimately resolves those issues in a satisfying way. The author has confidently used Vietnames phrases and words throughout the story, often understandable by the context in which they are used. Other times, readers of different ethnicities may feel challenged (in a good way!) to translate the Vietnamese for a complete understanding of the writer's intention. This in no way hinders the story, but instead provokes curiosity and learning. Fun book! Family dynamics with a little bit of magical realism sprinkled in. Would make a great audiobook!”
