Migrations

A Novel
By Charlotte McConaghy
Narrated by Barrie Kreinik /  8 hours 48 minutes

Migrations

“Set in a world that is possibly our near future, where animals, birds and fish have been driven to extinction by global warming and human consumption, Franny Stone is desperate to follow the last migration of Arctic terns as they head south from Greenland. She persuades the captain of a small fishing boat to take her on as a crew member, convincing him that the terns will lead them to the elusive fish he’s hunting. She must reject her own morals about fishing to follow the terns. And along the way, her past is uncovered and the crew put to risk; they themselves become the hunted. There is something haunting in this story, something unforgettable. This comes from the beauty of the language in opposition to the stark realities of a world where so much of what we love is simply gone. Franny speaks for many of us. What might we do to escape our past? And, more importantly, can we find a way to keep love alive in the face of tragedy?”

Luster

A Novel
By Raven Leilani
Narrated by Ariel Blake /  6 hours 39 minutes

Luster

Luster centers on Edie, a young black woman working in New York publishing and barely making rent each month, who finds herself navigating a suburban white couple’s open marriage. This novel is filled with unexpected turns taken at breakneck speeds. It seamlessly examines the plight of millennials living under capitalism along with the complications of intimacy and race, all while finding both the humor and profound sadness in those things. This is a multifaceted and brilliant book, as well as an extraordinary debut from Raven Leilani.”

The Death of Vivek Oji

A Novel
By Akwaeke Emezi
Narrated by Chukwudi Iwuji & Yetide Badaki /  7 hours 38 minutes

The Death of Vivek Oji

“This is not your usual mystery - it's a piecing together not of facts but of the soul. How did Vivek Oji die? The answer is complex, told in layered stories from Vivek's life from the ones who loved him the most. This book is about the parts of ourselves we hold secret, and the ones that make us feel the most free. It's honest, compelling, heartbreaking, and hopeful; it's a story you will never forget.”

Flyaway

By Kathleen Jennings
Narrated by Felicity Jurd /  4 hours 38 minutes

Flyaway

“I’ve never read anything quite like this book. The prose is confident—it’s like an iron backbone on which strange and beautiful flowers grow. Jennings’ use of syntax is utterly unique. Words that should bump and snap at each other instead morph and burst into unforgettable sentences. This is a... fairy tale? An allegory? A murder mystery? I’m not entirely sure. It doesn’t matter. Trying to categorize this wonderful novel would be like putting a unicorn into a horse box. It wouldn’t fit and the horn would shatter the wood. Best to leave it unbound and wild, admire it for what it is, and wonder at what it’s not.”

True Story

A Novel
By Kate Reed Petty
Narrated by Kristen Sieh, Alexander Cendese & Cassandra Campbell /  8 hours 34 minutes

True Story

“A brilliant mind-bender of a novel that uses different methods of storytelling to illustrate how storytelling creates different versions of truth (if truth even exists) and reality. Are we the stories we tell ourselves? Or do we become the stories that are told about us? This is the question True Story asks as it peels away layer after layer of the narrative. Part fever dream, part timely comment on sexual assault, and part psychological thriller, True Story will keep you turning pages and guessing until the genius, puzzle-completing ending. I LOVED this book!”

Hieroglyphics

By Jill McCorkle
Narrated by Kimberly Farr & Xe Sands /  9 hours 33 minutes

Hieroglyphics

“Jill McCorkle’s latest novel, Hieroglyphics, tackles early loss and how its memory persists in the minds of those who experience it. McCorkle weaves the stories of four unassuming characters and their individual traumas into a braided cord of empathy, revelation, and survival. Her storytelling skill is in high gear in this quiet yet deeply insightful drama that will remain in the reader’s mind long after the final page.”

Memorial Drive

A Daughter's Memoir
By Natasha Trethewey
Narrated by Natasha Trethewey /  5 hours 9 minutes

Memorial Drive

“This is one of those "I'm changed forever" books and having the author, poet Natasha Trethewey read it makes it reverberate in the soul even more. The writing of this memoir is exquisite and the construction of the prose is perfect. The heartbreak and honesty of the author will stay with me. I can't wait to hear back from those I've recommended it to, they're in for a special experience.”

Crossings

A Novel
By Alex Landragin
Narrated by Barrie Kreinik & Raphael Corkhill /  24 hours 24 minutes

Crossings

“Whoa! I am blown away by this book! A few wandering souls travel over time and space from the early 1800s to WWII in this truly unique story of love, struggle, and the desire to make things right. This book can be read two different ways: from cover to cover or in a page order mapped out at the beginning. It is a completely different reading experience depending on which way you choose. The atmosphere of Crossings is one of Sherlock Holmes written by a David Mitchell-esque character with a love for literature and Paris. This novel is beyond explanation—just read it!”

Hamnet

A novel
By Maggie O'Farrell
Narrated by Ell Potter /  12 hours 42 minutes

Hamnet

“I loved Hamnet in very much the same way I loved Lincoln in the Bardo. This novel explores the way the dead haunt the living—especially how the death of a child haunts their parents—and does it in the context of a fascinating historical figure and time. But we know so much about the Lincolns, and so little about the Shakespeares. Maggie O’Farrell’s ability to construct a palpably real emotional life for all the members of the Shakespeare family—but especially for Shakespeare’s wife—is just magical. This is a powerful and haunting novel.”

Empire of Wild

A Novel
By Cherie Dimaline
Narrated by Michelle St. John /  8 hours 16 minutes

Empire of Wild

“Cherie Dimaline’s latest novel packs a wallop of a story. Absolutely stunning in every way, this latest offering follows the story of Joan, whose husband has disappeared, and her courage when confronted with truths and lies. She and her husband, Victor, live in a Métis community, close and tight knit. As Joan deals with the fallout of her emotions after Victor disappears, she comes across another man, Eugene Wolff, who bears her husband’s face. He does not carry Victor’s memories and insists he has no idea who Joan’s husband is. Turning over rocks to find the truth, Joan reaches out to whomever she can in her community for help. What waits for her at the end of her quest is incredible. This novel will have you at the edge of your seat!”

Universe of Two

A Novel
By Stephen P. Kiernan
Narrated by Cassandra Campbell /  15 hours 14 minutes

Universe of Two

“Many people were involved in the creation of the atomic bomb in the mid-1940s, and Charles Fisk was one of them. Like many of those developmental scientists and engineers, Fisk remained deeply troubled and forever changed by the outcome of his efforts. This finely crafted love story—and a love story it is—weaves a well-researched history of the shrouded creation of the atomic bomb with the blossoming love of two people. Kiernan’s work exposes a terrifying truth and renders a valuable education while pulling the reader into a fast-paced narrative of love and loss.”

The Eighth Detective

A Novel
By Alex Pavesi
Narrated by Emilia Fox /  11 hours 16 minutes

The Eighth Detective

“For an avid mystery reader, this book is deeply satisfying. Short stories are picked apart by a young editor and an older author who are looking for a mathematical standard to the classic detective novel. Each story depicts a variation of victim, killer, and detective, and contains clues to yet another mystery involving the author. Puzzles bloom within puzzles, and the final reveal...well, no spoilers from me, but it was unexpected in the best way!”

The Butterfly Lampshade

A Novel
By Aimee Bender
Narrated by Julia Whelan /  7 hours 21 minutes

The Butterfly Lampshade

“I absolutely loved reading The Butterfly Lampshade. We’re escorted through Aimee Bender’s novel by Francie, who as a child is removed from her mother’s care because of mental illness. Throughout the story, Francie questions her own sanity as she deeply believes she witnesses phenomena that defy nature. Increasingly, she withdraws from the world, owning next to nothing and working hard to remember the events of her life. This book and this amazing character are astonishing.”

You Had Me at Hola

A Novel
By Alexis Daria
Narrated by Seraphine Valentine /  10 hours 27 minutes

You Had Me at Hola

“I don’t have enough superlatives to do this book justice. Everything is spot on, from the chemistry between the main characters to the telenovela drama to the meddling but supportive cousins. I love all the Spanish, the backstage glimpses into the making of a TV show (especially the inclusion of the intimacy coordinator), and the way the telenovela tropes, like a secret child, are woven into the grounded romance. Now I just hope Michelle and Ava get their own books soon!”

I Hold a Wolf by the Ears

Stories
By Laura van den Berg
Narrated by Amy Landon /  5 hours 37 minutes

I Hold a Wolf by the Ears

“Laura van den Berg’s new collection of stories, one of the most unique I’ve read in recent years, navigates a space between the outer and inner world and takes unexpected turns that, like her novel, The Third Hotel, seem to bring in aesthetics of literature outside our time and place to tell stories that are very much grounded in our present. These stories are thrilling, timeless, and get better when you reread them. I’ve read ‘Hill of Hell’ more than five times by now.”

Miracle Country

A Memoir
By Kendra Atleework
Narrated by Cassandra Campbell /  9 hours 21 minutes

Miracle Country

Miracle Country is one of those books that takes on the personality of the place in which it's set, and in the case of the Owens River Valley, that personality is starkly beautiful and full of rugged vitality. Atleework's unflinching combination of personal and natural exploration is the perfect complement to the backdrop of the High Sierra, and she somehow manages to encapsulate both the allure and the contemptuousness of the mountains and existence in general through her examination of her own life. Harsh and brutal, resplendent and inviting, this book makes the Sierra Nevada tangible in a way that only great writing can.”

Mexican Gothic

A Novel
By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Narrated by Frankie Corzo /  10 hours 39 minutes

Mexican Gothic

“Best book I have read this year. An amazing, gripping tale of a young woman in a strange old house. It's an epic ghost story mixed with some element for "Girl with all the Gifts." Compelling characters and a twist ending that will have you in the edge of your seat until the very end. 10/10 would recommend. ”

Take a Hint, Dani Brown

A Novel
The Brown Sisters
By Talia Hibbert
Narrated by Ione Butler /  10 hours

Take a Hint, Dani Brown

“I loved the second of Talia Hibbert’s Brown Sisters series, Take a Hint, Dani Brown. Like the first, this book features realistic situations and diverse characters, and is also super sexy! Dani is a witchy PhD candidate teaching at a university, her classroom housed in the same building where Zafir Ansari works as a security guard. A former professional rugby player and a hopeless romantic, Zaf is a giant teddy bear. But workaholic Dani is the queen of no-strings-attached. After a security drill gone wrong ends with Zaf heroically carrying Dani out of the building, the incident goes viral on Instagram. Are Zaf and Dani just playing up #DrRugbae, or could they be something more? Hibbert yet again handles sensitive topics with grace and grants them visibility. I can’t wait for the next book!”
