Lightbringer

The Empirium Trilogy: Book #3

By Claire Legrand
Narrated by: Fiona Hardingham
Length: 24 hours 18 minutes

Lightbringer

“Lightbringer might be the best conclusion to any series I have ever read. And I do not say this lightly. Claire grabs you by the skin of your teeth and doesn't let go until the very last page with twists and turns that keep you guessing constantly. To say nothing of the character development. Rielle, Eliana, Audric, Remy, Corien, Ludivine… each and every one of them is broken down to their base and rewoven from the Empirium itself, entirely themselves, and yet so much more than they have ever been, golden and sparkling. If you thought you loved them before, you didn’t know the half of it. Lightbringer is blood, sweat, and tears. It’s all of the things I loved about Furyborn and Kingsbane (assassin queens, impossible choices, extra swoon-worthy moments). It’s pain. And it’s hope. An utter triumph.”

Network Effect

“Martha Wells’ Murderbot Diaries has become one of my favorite series of all time, and Network Effect is a perfect addition. Murderbot is still trying to figure out what it wants after hacking its governor module. In the meantime, it spends its days protecting the humans it cares about. Of course, everything goes terribly wrong when a friend shows up to kidnap Murderbot and its humans are along for the ride. Network Effect isn’t just fun and action-packed, it’s also emotional and thought-provoking. I love Murderbot!”

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You

A Remix of the National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning

By Jason Reynolds & Ibram X. Kendi
Narrated by: Jason Reynolds
Length: 4 hours 11 minutes

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You

“If I had to choose one book to help start young people talking about race, I would pick this one. In fact, you need to read this book. Everyone should. Not only is it extremely approachable, it is also incredibly informative and inclusive. Most of the audiobook is read by Jason Reynolds, and I could not have picked a better narrator. Though it is targeted toward young adults, this book is great for adults as well. Already upon finishing, there are several books I now want to read to further my knowledge on this subject, many of which were overwhelming to me before. ”
