Pizza Girl

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

Pizza Girl

“Pizza Girl, set in a Los Angeles neighborhood, explores the tangled mess of a young pregnant girl’s life. While this charming 18-year-old pizza delivery driver has a devoted mom and a committed boyfriend, she grieves her dad, a complete loser, and mucks through her existence with no direction or motivation. Meeting a bizarre array of customers on any given night is the norm. One night, an unusual request by suburban mom Jenny for a pickle-topped pizza sparks an obsessive relationship. A fast-paced, fresh story with smart observations of a completely screwed up situation, a modernly tragic girl, and witty, yet flawed characters... Jean Kyoung Frazier delivers a satisfying read.”

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.”

A Novel
By Marisa de los Santos
Narrated by Caitlin Kelly /  9 hours 14 minutes

I'd Give Anything

“A beautifully written story of identity lost and found, friendship, the love of a mother for her child, and what happens when decades-old secrets are brought to light. Ginny is married with a teenage daughter when her husband’s scandal threatens to bring her world crashing down around her. 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

“I adored this book! I laughed until I cried, I cringed in shared embarrassment, and I read entire essays out loud to anyone who would listen. Although almost any reader will find something to relate to in Mia Mercado’s writing, she will speak directly to the hearts of millennials who still remember their hilariously terrible first AIM screennames. For all the laughs, Weird but Normal also delivers heartfelt truths about issues ranging from racism in America to depression. Can’t wait to see what Mercado does next!”

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

“All Adults Here centers around Astrid Strick, a widow who lives in a tight-knit community where two of her three adult children also live. Although circumstances could present close, supportive ties among this family, the reality is that Astrid has difficulty connecting to any of her kids—her daughter is a mess and seems might never grow up; her oldest son strives to attain a certain confusing stature of his own making; and her youngest son, who lives in New York, appears to be in a mindless, wandering haze which permeates his own life as well as his daughter’s. The story takes off when the aforementioned granddaughter comes to live with Astrid after being involved in some type of squabble at her previous school. This new challenge, as well as a past friend getting unexpectedly run over by a bus, sets Astrid’s life romping forward, forcing her to examine her past mistakes and to proclaim her new love interest to her family. A series of touching, funny, sexy, and real revelations by a diverse cast of characters unfold as each one deals with their own case of growing pains.”

Simon the Fiddler

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

Simon the Fiddler

“Texas is not a typical setting for a novel staged at the end of the Civil War and the chaotic months immediately after. A skinny fiddle player and an indentured servant are not the typical romantic western protagonists. But the story of these two, along with a host of lovable and despicable support characters, vivid descriptions of the country and culture of Texas in the mid-1860s make Simon the Fiddler a winner. Add in the masterful voice of narrator Grover Gardner and this is an unforgettable audiobook experience.”

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

“Pretty Things by Janelle Brown is a quick and entertaining read. The author constructs a narrative with many twists and turns, some predictable (but still fun) and others not. I appreciated the juxtaposition of the characters and their history, as well as hearing the story from the different points of view.”

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.”

A Children's Bible

By Lydia Millet
Narrated by Xe Sands /  5 hours 34 minutes

A Children's Bible

“In A Children’s Bible, the age-old war between kids and their parents, children and adults, is reimagined through the lens of Biblical devastation. The result is harrowing and, in unexpected moments, hilarious. Millet has created a story that feels both folkloric and brand new, a tale as much about environmental cataclysm as it is about fighting for the people, things, and ideas that remain right and true, no matter how high the water gets. I love Millet’s perfectly tuned sentences as much as the ambition of this novel, which I’ll continue thinking about for a long time.”

Grown Ups

By Emma Jane Unsworth
Narrated by Chloe Massey /  8 hours 24 minutes

Grown Ups

Grown Ups is told with humor and angst (both causing laughter and anxiety) in traditional prose supplemented with emails, texts, and social media columns and comments — much like our lives today. Jenny is living in London and tethered to her Instagram as her real life is slightly falling apart. This book is filled with fantastic writing and insights relevant to the modern balance of social media life with real life. I don’t want to say too much more, other than I will miss Jenny now that I’ve finished reading.”
