A Song of Wraiths and Ruin
Narrated by Jordan Cobb & A.J. Beckles / 12 hours 3 minutes
“A story of magic, champions, and romance, A Song of Wraiths and Ruins is a great start for the duology. Malik and Karina's paths are intertwined in a way that they can't even expect and before the fifty year comet fades from the sky, they'll come to find out how deadly that can be. I absolutely loved this story. I had the pleasure of listening to it on Libro.fm and the performance was masterful. There are two protagonists so there are two different voices. I was at the edge of my seat when I listened.”Kaitlin, Story on the Square

The Giver of Stars
By Jojo Moyes
Narrated by Julia Whelan / 13 hours 52 minutes
“In the late 1930s, the Works Progress Administration developed a number of projects intended to provide employment opportunities for unemployed artists, writers, and craftsmen. One of those projects was the Pack Horse Library Initiative, in which mounted horsewomen picked their way along snowy hillsides and through muddy creeks with a simple goal: to deliver reading material to Kentucky’s isolated mountain communities. In The Giver of Stars, Moyes has brought to life the amazing, funny, adventurous stories of a few of these trailblazing women. Historical fiction lovers will devour this story of a little-known piece of U.S. history.”Angie Tally, The Country Bookshop

The Poet X
Narrated by Elizabeth Acevedo / 3 hours 30 minutes
“The Poet X is written and narrated by Elizabeth Acevedo. It is a novel made up of poems by a teenager, Xiomara Batista, growing up in Harlem. Acevedo's narration is wonderful and brings the story to life. Xiomara's dad is MIA even though he lives at home; her mother is extremely religious and pushes her faith onto her daughter; her twin brother is quiet and also working through his own feelings; she starts her first relationship with a guy; and all the time Xiomara is told what she can and cannot do, gets accosted by men, has to defend herself because no one else will, is questioning God and has no one to open up to. She releases her pent of feelings in a notebook. It isn't until her new English teacher introduces her to spoken poetry that she realizes that is what she is meant to be: a poet. This is a lovely story of a young, misunderstood girl, coming of age and showing the world that she is worth it. Great for adults who enjoyed Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson and extremely relevant literature for the #metoo movement.”Kelly, M. Judson Booksellers
Such a Fun Age
By Kiley Reid
Narrated by Nicole Lewis / 9 hours 58 minutes
“When I attempted to write a review for Such a Fun Age, I was at a loss for words. How could I encapsulate how Kiley Reid’s startling debut perfectly captured what it means to be a woman? The societal pressure, the self-doubt, the perseverance, the constant comparison — all of it was perfectly represented through Reid’s two wonderfully flawed and captivating leads. Follow Emira and Alix, two women on seemingly incongruous paths who find themselves searching for purpose and an authentic sense of self. Such a Fun Age tackles complex issues — race, gender, economic status, and the intersection of them all — yet remains accessible. You will not want to put this book down; when you do, you’ll be itching to pick it back up again.”Gennifer Eccles, Flyleaf Books

The Starless Sea
Narrated by Dominic Hoffman & Various / 18 hours 36 minutes
If you enjoyed Little, Big, then you’ll love The Starless Sea.
“Love, ghosts, libraries, presents, pasts, finding and losing, seeking and discovering, all intertwined in a puzzle-ring through which narrative lines twine and weave, until the reader's delight at knowing the characters and seeing the world bursts with glorious epiphany. Not since "Little, Big" have I read a book that so caught my fancy, nor since Gormenghast have I found such an all-absorbing and whimsical world, nor since Borges and Calvino have I touched such an intricate creation of story and meta-story. This is not just a book. It's a legend, and let me introduce you, reader, to the part you are to play....”Nialle, The Haunted Bookshop
