Weird but Normal

Essays

By Mia Mercado
Narrated by: Mia Mercado
Length: 6 hours 3 minutes

Weird but Normal

“Mia Mercado's comedic timing is evident as she voices the alternations of her text. Shifting adeptly between dead honest coverage of micro-aggressions and lively portrayals of her pup; between depictions of vocational doldrums and a litany of relationship discoveries, between feminist self-love and self-deprecating humor, Mercado's range is refreshing and impressive.”

The Happy Ever After Playlist

By Abby Jimenez
Narrated by: Zachary Webber & Erin Mallon
Length: 9 hours 17 minutes

The Happy Ever After Playlist

“I loved the dual back and forth narration between Sloan and Jason after their hilariously fun meet-cute involving Jason’s dog and international phone calls and texts. Having two narrators for the audiobook brought the characters to life. What really made this story work for me was the substance provided by a realistic portrayal of a woman finally allowing herself to be released from her cocoon of grief and learning how to live again alongside the challenges of dating an up and coming musician. The music side of it also gave it an extra layer of specialness and made it more interesting. Each chapter starts with a song title giving you a sneak peek into what to expect from that chapter along with an actual playlist to create and enjoy. ”

The Boyfriend Project

By Farrah Rochon
Narrated by: Je Nie Fleming
Length: 9 hours 41 minutes

The Boyfriend Project

“Smart, steamy, and fun! I listened to this one through Libro.FM and loved everything from the author's voice to the female friendships to the recognition that internet fame is an emotional burden. (I was also deeply amused by the fact that the male lead had lived/worked in Vienna, in the building locals affectionately refer to as "The Toilet Bowl.")”

The Right Swipe

A Novel

By Alisha Rai
Narrated by: Summer Morton & Brian Pallino
Length: 10 hours 13 minutes

The Right Swipe

“With a diverse cast of emotionally mature yet complex characters, The Right Swipe delivers an interesting and fun modern love story. Rai’s finger is obviously on the pulse as she engages with current trends such as the #MeToo movement, and she does so masterfully while still creating a fun and enjoyable read. I wish all my beach-and-bath romance novels could be so well-written and inclusive.”

Technically, You Started It

By Lana Wood Johnson
Narrated by: Katie Koster & Christian Barillas
Length: 5 hours 9 minutes

Technically, You Started It

“ The premise of the book is that a guy named Martin Nathaniel Munroe II (there are two of them, believe it or not!) texts Haley to ask her about a school project, she thinks she is talking to the one she doesn't hate. The entire book is text conversations between Haley and Martin. It is funny, heartwarming and at times you want to yell or counsel both of them as you get so invested in them! I loved the ending and was quite honestly sad when I finished it!”

Take a Hint, Dani Brown

A Novel
The Brown Sisters

By Talia Hibbert
Narrated by: Ione Butler
Length: 10 hours

Take a Hint, Dani Brown

“One of the great pleasures of getting to work in a bookstore is having co-workers coax you to new genres and experiences. So many folk were raving about Talia Hibbert that I decided to give her a read. Delightful! Funny and moving. Damn charming. Serious in intent and yet light as a feather. And very, very sexy. If you are looking for a book filled with joy during this tough time, I can't think of a better choice. And the narrator, Ione Butler is just as delightful and talented as the prose that she is reading. Talia Hibbert and Ione Butler make for a fantastic, perfect pairing.”

Not the Girl You Marry

By Andie J. Christopher
Narrated by: January LaVoy
Length: 8 hours 24 minutes

Not the Girl You Marry

“This is a fun and engaging read. Don’t let the concept (a role reversal of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days) or cute cover fool you. There is a lot more depth to this plot than meets the eye; it’s about being seen and accepting your true self. Jack and Hannah both try to be what they think others want them to be but, because of their deceptions due to job obligations, are actually their natural selves. I can’t wait for book two.”
