By K.M. Szpara
Narrated by: Mark Sanderlin & Vikas Adam
Length: 16 hours 31 minutes
“People will often refer to a book as one that’s ‘unlike anything they’ve ever read before,’ but for maybe the first time in my reading life, I can honestly say that about K.M. Szpara’s Docile. This erotic speculative science fiction novel takes place in a frighteningly plausible future where people become ‘dociles’ — essentially indentured slaves working off debt — and explores themes of consent, capitalism, and the abuse cycle. A visceral reading experience that will challenge, confront, titillate, and disgust, Docile feels like a book we will be talking about for decades.”Caleb Masters, Bookmarks

“Lately in canon, the world of books has been missing a sense of wonder and whimsy to go along with the darkness of so much fantasy. Emily Wilde has done a stupendous job of jumping right in with her awkward self and stealing my heart away. I absolutely could not put down the first book and squealed with delight when I saw the arc of the second had dropped. My poor husband had to endure my countless exclamations of "oh my god I have to read you this, it's so funny" or "oh my god! This is so...”Katlin • Story on the Square
“Holy cr*p! A cautionary climate tale on crack! The perfect balance of plot and prose, comedy and commentary, education and entertainment. Not for the faint of heart, but so terribly spot on with the ever increasing effects of climate change and the myriad of ways humans are dealing with them, or not. With three different narrators all from the same family, some living in Florida and others in California, the variety of perspectives coupled with the smart science had me hooked and I could not...”Jen • Townie Books
“All Chrissy Durang wants is for her son Barnett to come home and take over the family farm. When Barnett does come home, he tells her that he's engaged to Ezra. As Chrissy struggles to accept the situation, chaotic wedding planning begins. Lane balances humorous and poignant moments in Barnett and Ezra's relationship and Chrissy's journey to understanding unconditional love. If you enjoyed Schitt's Creek, you're going to love this! ”Cathy • Blue Willow Bookshop
“This collection could easily be subtitled How to Read Poetry Like a Poetry Lover. The collection could also easily double as a memoir, as Ó Tuama not only analyzes the 50 poems within, but shares anecdotes and memories that illuminate why each particular poem resonates with him. Listening to him is like having a passionate conversation about life, and what I love most is how beautifully he shows poetry to be a living, in-the-present art form, as expressive, meaningful, and relevant as ever. ”Jennifer • Tattered Cover
“I thought I had picked up the wrong audio when I started listening to Gone Tonight. Surely this lovely story about a daughter who was going to put her life on hold so she could spend more time with her mother, who had just been diagnosed with early onset alzheimer’s, couldn’t be the psychological thriller I expected from Sarah Pekkanen. There were a few hints that all may not be as it seemed. And then, there were bombshells. Suddenly it was an intense thriller that never let up. Gone Tonight...”Nancy • Fiction Addiction
“This is your smart, funny, acerbic, friend talking at you a mile a minute about their latest hyperfixation which, in this case, is hot dogs. This is a cross country travelogue steeped in meat-sweat and post-pandemic uncertainty with detours through such territory as gas station pickles and the politics of competitive eating. This is an appropriately angry critique of America via as patriotic a symbol as they come: The All American Hot Dog. You can keep loving hot dogs just let Loftus...”Jenna • Phoenix Books
