The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
“Steeped in the glory of Hollywood when marriages were made for reasons other than love and could be slipped on and off like a fine dinner jacket, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo reveals the behind-the-scenes stories of lives full of hunger, self-pity, jealousy, and rage, as well as lost love. This is a story that could have been pulled from the pages of fan magazines of the '50s. It's so entertainingly real that you will be wondering why you can't remember the great star Evelyn Hugo and the movies she made famous. Read for pure pleasure, and you'll be tempted to play the game of, 'Who is this about, really?' What fun!”Linda Bond, Auntie's Bookstore
The Love Hypothesis
If you enjoyed The Kiss Quotient, then you’ll love The Love Hypothesis.
“Olive is a scientist. Olive is also not a dater. She dated a guy named Jeremy, but that ended because 1) she didn’t really care and 2) she saw sparks fly between him and her BFF. Olive wants her best friend to be happy and decides to kiss a random guy to prove that she has moved on. The problem is, the random guy she kisses turns out to be none other than the known asshole professor, Dr. Adam Carlsen. Mortified, Olive apologies, but it’s not long before everyone finds out and spreads the rumor that they are dating. As Olive tries to put a stop to it, she realizes with Adam, that both can gain something from a fake dating situation. Thus, they move forward with rules and an end date in mind. But what happens when Olive starts to see a softer side of Adam? One who buys her pumpkin spice lattes and gives her such encouragement regarding her science? Also, he is pretty gorgeous. Can Olive really keep this up? Or will it implode before their end goal? This book was such a surprise that had me curled up in bed for hours. The details, the character development, and the intensity of written emotion had me feeling like I had been wrecked and then put back together, only wanting more.”Jen, Vroman's Bookstore

The Ex Hex
“The Ex Hex is a laugh-out-loud rom-com. But remember vodka and magic don’t mix.”Kimm, Gilbert and Ivy
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet
Wayfarers: Book #1
“This is the funnest, tenderest, most lovable space romp you’ll ever take. There’s a fun plot but the real reason to read this book is the crew of the Wayfarer. Fair warning: You’ll want to follow them anywhere! With inter-species romance, plenty of pronouns, and space-age wisdom, this book made us feel more tender to our own young species of Homo Sapiens and to ourselves. Highly recommend for fun, for fans of science-fiction, and for self-care.”Megan & Josh, Underground Books
People We Meet on Vacation
“What fun! This delightful book should be in every beach bag this summer. A hilariously comedic rom-com with memorable characters, set in varied vacation spots in various years. I enjoyed the changing timeline and seeing the relationship as it grew through the years.”Shelley Lowe, Monkey and Dog Books
Anatomy: A Love Story
This audiobook includes a bonus interview with the author.
Dana Schwartz’s Anatomy: A Love Story is a gothic tale full of mystery and romance.
Hazel Sinnett is a lady who wants to be a surgeon more than she wants to marry.
Jack Currer is a resurrection man who’s just trying to survive in a city where it’s too easy to die.

If you enjoyed Take a Hint, Dani Brown, then you’ll love Beach Read.
“2020 is apparently the year I start reading romance novels and loving them. Maybe it's my need for a little lighthearted fluff in quarantine, but straight fluff isn't really my jam no matter the day. I want fluff with meat on its bones. I want fluff with substance.Britt, Second Star to the Right
As for Beach Read... Did I just give a romance novel ALL THE STARS? Why yes. Yes I did. And if I could give it a few more, I would. Because Beach Read is just the kind of substantial 'fluff' I needed to read. It's the kind of book that flips the patriarchy on its head, the one that has told readers like me that romance novels can't be good literature. Because at the end of the day, my preference for anything *but* romance had little to do with the writing quality, and everything to do with social biases. Henry attacks those head on. And then she goes leaps and bounds further, delving into grief and love and identity, and how we understand each other.
This book is therapy. It's a book about writer's block in the best of ways - not just the literal premise of swapping stories, but that of feeling stuck in a rut and not knowing what to do to move forward with life. I felt completely and utterly seen in its pages. I cried ugly tears until I had none left. And then it lifted me up in a bucket full of swoon. Reader, I adored every minute. And with Julia Whelan to narrate, what more could you ask for?”
The Night Circus
“Scintillating, ethereal, and utterly captivating. And with narration by Jim Dale, who could say no? Morgenstern writes in sparkling prose, slowly weaving tapestries that come together in beautiful, unexpected ways, though when you look back, the stage had been set from the beginning. The Night Circus is a beautiful tale of being open to the magic in the world and choosing your own path through it all. Now if only I knew where the Cirque was making its next stop. Perhaps I'll email the proprietor... ”Britt, Second Star to the Right
This Is How You Lose The Time War
“How to begin a letter? How to begin a letter to your best enemy? This story takes place through the ages, between two-time traveling agents who must braid and unbraid the fabric of time in an effort to usher in their opposing futures. I read this twice before finishing it. This book is a book to savor.”Lafe, Oblong Books
A Marvellous Light
The Last Binding: Book #1
“Robin Blyth is in over his head at this new weird magical liaison job he was shoved into, and now he’s cursed to boot. Edwin Courcey is trying to figure out what happened to Robin’s predecessor and remove the curse. They’ve both got a lot going on and the growing attraction between them is really not helping. A Marvellous Light revels in the magical tropes, love, and mystery. I couldn’t put it down like I think the book itself magically attached itself to my hands until I finished it. If you are looking for some magic and a bit of fun, pick this book up now!”Izzy, Off the Beaten Path Bookstore

One Last Stop
If you enjoyed Honey Girl, then you’ll love One Last Stop.
“McQuiston delivers a delightful sophomore novel that surprised me. Though similar to Red, White, and Royal Blue, One Last Stop adds a science fiction time loop element that makes it fun and different. I had major missing-Brooklyn-feels while listening to this! McQuiston perfectly captures the magic of Brooklyn and the MTA (both good and bad). They have a super strong cast of characters that celebrates found family and kindness. McQuiston redefines what a modern romance can be by combining genres and featuring a strong queer relationship.”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys
Love & Other Disasters
The first openly nonbinary contestant on America’s favorite cooking show falls for their clumsy competitor in this delicious romantic comedy debut “that is both fantastically fun and crack your heart wide open vulnerable.” (Rosie Danan, author of The Roommate)

The Starless Sea
“What an amazing written and performed tale of love, mystery, and magic. This homage to books and storytelling is like nothing I’ve read... ever. Morgenstern has achieved a wondrous feat that defies measure.”Paul, Village Books
The Ten Thousand Doors of January
“This lovely, magical book is a coming-of-age story that blends the best qualities of the adventure stories of the early 20th century with some thoroughly modern sensibilities. January Scaller is an almost-orphan in the early 1900s, the unlikely ward of a rich collector of antiquities who employs her father to travel the world discovering treasures for his collections. When she discovers that she has the ability to open doors into other worlds, she finds a myriad of other civilizations, some beautiful, some terrifying, where the color of her skin and her gender don't matter the way they do in her own world. But her discovery threatens everything she believes about her life, her family and herself. The Ten Thousand Doors of January features beautiful writing and heart-stopping action. The perfect crossover novel, it will appeal equally to teens and adults alike. And January LaVoy's talented narration makes the story leap from the page. It's an immensely satisfying book!”Emily, Inklings Bookshop
The Book of Life
All Souls Series: Book #3
“Deborah Harkness' books are brain candy for the educated person. Her contemporary fantasies, filled with vampires, witches, and deamons, veer into historical fantasy (thanks to the long lives of characters). With a reader who can shift accents with ease, this audio book is enthralling. You'll be just as smitten by Harkness' descriptions of libraries, laboratories, and research as you will by her romances, making this a romance for the sapiosexual.”Marika, Porter Square Books
If This Gets Out
“This book absolutely blew me away! I couldn't put it down. For boy band fans, for those who can recite the words to every Camp Rock song, and for anyone who knows hard, complex, and beautiful it is to come out as queer whether you're famous or not - this is our book. Ramon de Ocampo, who also read Red White and Royal Blue, did an excellent job with the narration and truly brought Ruben, Zach, and their bandmates Angel and Jon to life.”Miriasha, Phoenix Books
Last Night at the Telegraph Club
Acclaimed author of Ash Malinda Lo returns with her most personal and ambitious novel yet, a gripping story of love and duty set in San Francisco's Chinatown during the 1950s.
"That book. It was about two women, and they fell in love with each other." And then Lily asked the question that had taken root in her, that was even now unfurling its... Read more »
Dark Olympus: Book #2
“Electric Idol is Katee's modern take on Eros and Psyche and my first ever retelling of these two. I've read my fair share of Hades retellings, but never one of Eros, aka- Greek god of love and sex. You will know him from his Roman counterpart: Cupid (desire). I liked drawing cupids as a teen, so I knew of Cupid and Eros, but I knew close to nothing about Psyche. After finishing the book (because I didn't want to be influenced by the Greek mythology stories) I went and read about her. Goddess of the soul! It works perfectly. Katee's Psyche is a plus size influencer with a heart of gold that you can't help but love. Definitely a modern day Psyche personified!”Anne, Inklings Bookshop
The Legendborn Cycle
If you enjoyed Children of Blood and Bone, then you’ll love Legendborn.
“If you’ve been thinking about trying audiobooks, I recommend LEGENDBORN by Tracy Deonn as a great starting point! The reader, Joniece Abbott-Pratt, completely transported me to the Southern Gothic world of a secret society on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill (down to the hot sauce on hash browns). With a complex magic system intricately tied to ancestry and world history, Arthurian legend, demon battles, and just enough romance, this was one of those books that I thought about when I couldn’t have it playing in my headphones! Deonn is a master, bringing Brianna, the main character, to name and disrupt white male supremacy while working through the grief of her own story and that of her mothers before her. I also loved the queer representation in secondary characters, including a squire with they/them pronouns. I can't wait for the sequel and to follow Deonn's career!”Kim, Lark & Owl
For fans of Casey McQuiston and Abby Jimenez comes a bold, hilarious, and out-of-the-box novel about mixing business with battery-operated pleasure . . .
When it comes to her career, Cade Elgin has it all figured out. Only “professional talk” has become her default mode, relationships are nonexistent, and don’t even mention the word “orgasm.” All... Read more »

Take a Hint, Dani Brown
The Brown Sisters
“Take a Hint, Dani Brown is a heartwarming romance that shines a light in dark times. Talia Hibbert normalizes quirks, coping mechanisms, and other human conditions that can get glossed over in a happily ever after. She makes it clear that verbalizing needs, sharing them with a loved one, and having them accepted is the true meaning of love. The depth of the characters and their struggles to come together are wonderfully balanced with charm, humor, and a large dollop of sarcasm. Take a Hint, Dani Brown is a delight.”Julie Karaganis, Copper Dog Books
Red, White & Royal Blue
If you enjoyed The House in the Cerulean Sea, then you’ll love Red, White & Royal Blue.
“This book is so much more than a captivating romance—it's a bubble bath, a warm hug, a delicious dessert, a catharsis full of feeling and hope and queer joy that still makes me cry and laugh even as I've reread it 10+ times! The audiobook is skillfully narrated, and de Ocampo does far better British and Texan accents than my brain could come up with on its own reading the book in print. Recommended for listeners no matter your gender identity or orientation, but this truly is chicken soup for the queer soul.”Miriasha, Phoenix Books

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine
“Eleanor Oliphant has quickly become one of my favorite fictional characters, and this novel one of my favorite books. Eleanor is completely original and the right kind of weird. Her life and her past, combined with such kindhearted characters, made for a compulsively readable, heartwarming story that I did not want to put down. I can't wait for this book to come out so many more can fall in love with Eleanor. Highly, highly recommended.”Kaitlin Smith, Copperfield's Books
Act Your Age, Eve Brown
“A satisfying conclusion to an absolutely delightful series! In the final installment of the trilogy, we follow the youngest Brown sister, Eve, a lovable hot mess who is looking to prove to her parents that she can get her life together. Her attempts to turn things around lead her to accidentally interview for as job as a chef at a bed and breakfast.

The Giver of Stars
“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

“"Listening to Cemetery Boys made me smile. A lot. Aiden Thomas presents a story of persistence, mystery, and finding one’s place in the world. Yadriel, a trans, teenage, latinx boy, lives in a family of brujos and brujas. After coming out as trans his family does not know where he fits within their traditions. With the help of his opinionated cousin Maritza, Yadriel completes the ceremony to become a brujo in secret and accidentally summons the wrong ghost: Julian, a high energy boy from his school. Yadriel, Julian and Maritza set out to solve the mystery of Julian’s death, and to release his spirit. Of course, to make things more awkward, Yadriel develops a crush on the spirit boy. What more could one ask for? Thomas creates a magical but real world highlighting family dynamics surrounding trans identity within a gendered society, the need to prove oneself, and the importance of connecting to family. This book may sound spooky, but instead the story is feel-good, heartwarming, and silly at times; it’s all about celebrating life and being who you are."”Emma, Content
