Audiobooks that support your bookstore
We are an unapologetially intersectional feminist community that celebrates all things women.We understand that women can be multiple things at once. Women can be anything they want to be, even if those things seem contradictory. Strong and vulnerable, sexual and reserved, outspoken and personable, book smart and street smart. We want to create a space where women feel empowered to embrace every aspect of themselves. By existing fully as ourselves, we will dismantle the patriarchy and white supremacy. By making resources accessible, Subverting Expectations is aiding and abetting people to create their own destinies and to live their most authentic lives. We are co-conspirators to historically underrepresented and marginalized communities. We will discuss social issues and share knowledge on how to be a part of the solution. We are here to uplift, empower, and create a safe place for everyone in the way they need and want us to. We understand that learning happens in different forms. We not only learn by reading but also having open discourse about books and life in general. We get to learn about other people, their experiences, and how they see the world. This makes us more aware, more empathetic, and that makes the world a better place. We love learning. We love knowing things. We want to provide people with the opportunity to fall in love with knowledge and learning.

“Love, Theoretically combines meme-based humor, sizzling romantic tension, soul-searching personal growth, and blazing critiques of the glaring disparities in academia. This book isn’t just awesome in theory — it’s a proven fact!”Sarah Knapp • Inkwood Books NJ
“In this WWII epic, Luis Alberto Urrea captures the catastrophic scale of war through the eyes of Irene and Dorothy, two Red Cross enlistees. Their spry banter, secrets, and tender care make a story and a friendship you won’t forget.”Sarah Hollenbeck • Women & Children First
“Equal parts modern satire, indictment of the publishing industry, and twisted ghost story, R. F. Kuang’s first foray into literary fiction pulls no punches and will have you reading late into the night.”Abby Bennsky • Old Town Books
“Awesome. Thuridur was Iceland's first female punk, sea captain, woman to wear trousers, and all-around badass. She's the hero you didn't know you needed. Margaret Wilson did an excellent job researching this book learning from the people of Iceland. I listened on Libro.fm, but will also read a physical copy because I like to party.”Monica • Bright Side Bookshop
“This novel is The Secret Garden meets Goodnight Mr. Tom meets Gone Girl. I loved it! I've been listening to this as an audiobook on my morning walks and I've been having to take afternoon and evening walks as well, because I just can't wait to hear more. I love the thought of a magical world only the sisters share with their stories. Patti Callahan Henry just captures that wonder of childhood so well. This book is an easy handsell and one of my favorites so far this year!”Marya • Out West Books
“Of course I knew the Red Cross served in all the wars, but I thought it was nursing care and well back from danger. I had no idea they trained women to be a slice of home for the GI's, to cook donuts, play card games, be a listening ear, and deliver mail all the way up to the foxholes of the front line. I couldn't put it down.”Lisa • Bookmarks
