The Light We Carry
Overcoming in Uncertain Times
“Michelle Obama is back with more words of wisdom, pillars of humility, and just simply Michelle. The Light We Carry is an uplighting book that will help you deal with the emotions and isolation that we have had to deal with during and after the pandemic. But more than that, she has compiled questions that she has been asked again and again, and acknowledges each with personal stories, anecdotes, wisdom, and love. This book feel like you are sitting down with an old friend when you have had a bad day and and just need some love and a hot drink.”Gretchen, Fiction Addiction
Lessons in Chemistry
“Formidable Elizabeth Zott will capture your heart as she, Six-Thirty, Mad and others did me. It’s 1960 and Elizabeth is a woman in a man’s field – she experiences sexism, inequality, and abuse. I found this heartwarming, fun, with a sense of intelligent humor, and full of charm and hope.”Karin, Bookworm of Edwards
I'm Glad My Mom Died
If you enjoyed Dancing at the Pity Party, then you’ll love I'm Glad My Mom Died.
“Equal parts hilarious and devastating, Jennette McCurdy reviews her acting career with stark clarity, irony to fill your soul, and a presence of control over the uncontrollable. I'm Glad My Mom Died reflects on undiagnosed narcissism with a mother forcing her child to live out her mother's dreams as a childhood actor. The dichotomy of gratefulness and criticism take center stage in this beautiful memoir read by the author with honesty, pain, and a performance that will resonate with you for months to come. Please listen to this.”Nick, Cream & Amber

“I've been very much enjoying my first foray into audiobooks: Stephen King's Fairy Tale. I listen to Seth Numrich's narration every time I'm in my car. I'm not the first to say that King is a master storyteller. As a writer myself, I've long been intrigued by his ability to flesh out characters well enough so that I can actually visualize them and empathize with whatever (likely terrifying) situation they encounter. In Fairy Tale (of which I'm about 1/4 of the way through) I am totally with mature-for-his-age Charlie and his adopted, misunderstood dog, Radar, as they are about to discover what the hell is living in the shed and the origins of the gold pellets. I also really love the relationship Charlie has with his widowed and recovering alcoholic father....I find myself hanging on every word, completely engrossed...”Amy, Wellesley Books

Remarkably Bright Creatures
“In turns funny, heart-warming, and poignant, Remarkably Bright Creatures is the most unlikely tale of how broken hearts can be mended, in this case with the help of a brilliant giant Pacific octopus, Marcellus, observing humanity from his tank in a Puget Sound aquarium.It is only Marcellus who is bright enough to see a connection between two lost souls who have entered his sphere - Tova, the 70-year-old cleaning woman, and Cam, a 30-year-old drifter who works part-time at the aquarium. Marin Ireland is a remarkable narrator, allowing us to lose ourselves in proper Tova, a Scots grocer and slacker Cam. But my favorite passages are the first-person chapters where we hear Marcellus, narrated by actor Michael Urie, in a haughty voice dripping with superiority, and in the end, love.”Claire, Honest Dog Books

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
If you enjoyed The Lions of Fifth Avenue, then you’ll love The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.
“What a great read! Perfect balance of pure gossip and Hollywood drama with a gut-wrenching love story all told from the perspective of a woman who is so flawed and so endearing. This book went somewhere that was so surprising and yet made so much sense. It turns all preconceived notions of Hollywood on their head and certainly makes you question anything you've read in tabloids and online. A must-read! I just re-read this for my book club almost 3.5 years after the first time (and the release date). Damn, it is still an engrossing read. The audiobook was narrated by three faves: Alma Cuervo (the PERFECT EVELYN! STUNNING!), Robin Miles (who is amazing), and Julia Whelan (genius idea to give a different voice to all the celebrity rags and Whelan's voice was perfect for it).”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys

“This is an incredibly powerful story that I think everyone should read. Told from the perspective of two different characters, who despite being at different stages in their lives, are trying to figure out who they are. It examines the traumas that we experience in life, how we process those (or don't), and how they shape us. It looks at who we know ourselves to be, how we honor that (or don't), and the strength it takes to truly be yourself. The people that read the two different narrators are perfectly cast, and really add to the impact and experience of the story for the listener. I don't think that it is possible to read this book and not come away changed in the best ways. I believe that if everyone read this, the world would be a much more empathetic place.”Allie, Oblong Books
A Brief History of Humankind
“I don't own many books. I read books and give them away. However, I will NOT be giving away my copy of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. It's a keeper! Sapiens was an intense read for me. I found myself taking breaks every dozen pages or so. Not because I was bored - just the opposite. I needed time to let the author's perspective on the history of our species (you, me, us!) sink in. Yuval Noah Harari is irreverent at times and makes mind-blowing assertions in his book. You may not agree with all of his theories, but what he claims will make you see yourself as the animal you are in a refreshing new light. It's even possible that after you read Sapiens your view of the human condition will have shifted dramatically. Superbly translated from the original Hebrew into English by the author himself, Sapiens is accessible to readers of all types of non-fiction and fiction alike.”Catherine, The Bookloft
