By Clare Pooley
Narrated by Anna Cordell /  10 hours 24 minutes

The Authenticity Project

“Lovely story with great characters! Light enough, but still moving. I'm a little sad to be finished with it, honestly, and I'm already hoping for a sequel. Are you listening Penguin Random House? Sequel, please!”

Confessions of A Shopaholic

Shopaholic: Book #1
By Sophie Kinsella
Narrated by Emily Gray /  11 hours 42 minutes

Confessions of A Shopaholic

“This was the perfect feel-good book for traveling and reading with jet lag. It gave me palpitations at times — Becky’s misadventures with letters from the bank and credit card companies were distressingly reminiscent of my own 20s. I loved how her situation resolved itself, and I loved her voice and her (again, very familiar) delusions — as well as how very British it all was.”

A Nanny Writes Home
By Nina Stibbe

The Lido

By Libby Page
Narrated by Clare Corbett /  9 hours 18 minutes

The Lido

“What a fun read! Libby Page does a great job telling the story of a small London town pool and the people who make it an important part of their lives. The friendship between Kate and Rosemary, despite their age difference, is so well-developed and plays an integral role in the story. The Lido is a book that every summer reader will enjoy and one that will be great to talk about at book clubs. Very well done, Libby Page!”

Talking as Fast as I Can

From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between)
By Lauren Graham
Narrated by Lauren Graham /  4 hours 35 minutes

Talking as Fast as I Can

“Lauren Graham reads her memoir so well, with just the right amount of dramatisation, and now I remember why I want to be best friends with her, even if she does never reply to my tweets. It was also a great book for me to be listening to while I was at a writing conference, because she talks encouragingly about pursuing your creative dream even when you’re not sure if it’s ever going to happen for you. Lauren Graham is warm and witty, and I’m just the right amount of old enough to side with her when she gets old and sensible and talks beautifully about disconnecting from our phones. Highly recommended.”

The Roxy Letters

By Mary Pauline Lowry
Narrated by Jayme Mattler /  9 hours 39 minutes

The Roxy Letters

“Move over Bridget Jones, Roxy is here to stay! Thank goddess! I loved every sentence of The Roxy Letters; I found myself laughing out loud at some of her wacky antics. I also loved the quirky cast of characters that danced across the pages, and I think Roxy is the perfect antihero for the new millennium. I can’t wait to see where Mary Pauline Lowry’s career is headed!”

The Book of Delights

By Ross Gay
Narrated by Ross Gay /  5 hours

The Book of Delights

“For those of you having a rough year, take comfort and inspiration from Ross Gay’s aptly titled The Book of Delights. After going through a bumpy patch himself, Gay tasked himself with a year’s worth of essays, each day focusing on something delightful. What resulted is a warm, thoughtful range of reflections on tomato plants, high fives, and airport security. The Book of Delights is a companion to keep with you, whether on your nightstand, in the bathtub, or on the subway, for a brief moment of emotional respite. Definitely one of my first delights of 2019.”

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

By Abbi Waxman
Narrated by Emily Rankin /  9 hours 3 minutes

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

“What a joyous, charming, funny and beautiful celebration of books and the people who love them. There is so much detail in both the wonderful, wide-ranging cast of characters and in the setting. Quirky in the very best sense of the word. I will certainly return to the world of Nina Hill again and again.”

Star-Crossed

A Novel
By Minnie Darke
Narrated by Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood /  13 hours 47 minutes

Star-Crossed

“This might be the best book I’ve read in years. The story was a delight and the writing was beautiful — it had the feel of a fairytale for grownups, in the best way. I'll be recommending this one for a long time!”
