Nothing to See Here

By Kevin Wilson
Narrated by Marin Ireland /  6 hours 40 minutes

Nothing to See Here

“When a politician’s young wife hires her old school friend as a nanny for her two stepchildren, the main duty will be to keep the twins out of sight and out of trouble. That’s because the kids’ father is a senator and under serious consideration to be the next Secretary of State. But what if the children can’t control themselves? Who is the best person to take care of children who are afflicted with spontaneous combustion? Obviously, a woman with no fear of fire, nothing to lose, and nothing to gain. At turns hilarious and heartbreaking, this unique novel explores family dynamics, resentment, and retribution, leaving the reader with a new perspective on motherhood and what it means to be loyal to those you love.”

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

Wayfarers: Book #1
By Becky Chambers
Narrated by Rachel Dulude /  14 hours 23 minutes

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

“This gripping, diverse novel, set well after Earth's residents have scattered to Mars, other planets, and itinerant spacecraft, is as scientifically and sociopolitically plausible as any science fiction I've ever read or listened to. The characters, from a variety of alien species along with AI, have wide-ranging journeys that speak to our current reality and to issues of immigration, xenophobia, colonization, economic class, technological advancement, environmentalism, and more. The members of one species are all born female and becomes male later on, of another all use "they" pronouns, and of another are free with their touch and affection and find amusement in human hangups about touch. In the midst of all this complex representation emerges a story that stands alone as cohesive, meaningful, and powerful.”

This Is How You Lose The Time War

By Amal El-Mohtar & Max Gladstone
Narrated by Cynthia Farrell & Emily Woo Zeller /  4 hours 15 minutes

This Is How You Lose The Time War

“Such an interesting futuristic story! The battle of Red versus Blue - tech vs. garden - through time was a fun trip to read. I especially enjoyed how the main characters by fighting each other grew to love each other. It was also super nice to read a sci-fi book that isn't 1,000 pages long and still have enough detail that you aren't lost in the physics.I listened to this story on libro.fm. It was especially easy and enjoyable to follow as there were different voice actors for the different characters.”

The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep

A Novel
By H. G. Parry
Narrated by Calum Gittens /  18 hours 3 minutes

The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep

“This book is the perfect summer reading escape for a literature lover! The book takes place in a modern New Zealand where a Summoner, someone able to pull characters out of books and into real life, has appeared and is threatening to tear down the very fabric of existence to bring a world of literature to life. Throughout all the adventure and excitement we follow the sweet story of 2 brothers, pulled apart and eventually put back together again. The narrator has a soft NZ accent, bringing a richness to the text without making it hard to understand for non-natives.”
