Plain Bad Heroines

A Novel

By Emily M. Danforth
Narrated by: Xe Sands
Length: 19 hours 27 minutes

Plain Bad Heroines

“I have never read a book that was this much fun. This was a roller coaster of a read, hitting all the notes from beginning to end. Gothic elements intermingled with the current time period will keep the reader so engrossed that they won’t realize they’ve stayed up all night reading this book, one that’s the kind of book you don’t want to read in the dark but you just can’t put down. The ride through history that meets the present will keep you entertained, on your toes, and peeking between your fingers as you cover your eyes.”

The Cold Millions

A Novel

By Jess Walter
Narrated by: Edoardo Ballerini, Gary Farmer, Marin Ireland, Cassandra Campbell, MacLeod Andrews, Tim Gerard Reynolds, Mike Ortego, Rex Anderson, Charlie Thurston & Frankie Corzo
Length: 11 hours 29 minutes

The Cold Millions

“The gorgeous writing, vivid setting, compelling characters, and engrossing story aren’t even the best parts of this novel. Instead, I just keep marveling at how Jess Walter takes events from history to illuminate our present while keeping them rooted in their own time, from the labor movement to class, race, and gender equality and civil rights issues, to protests and freedom of speech. The northwest in 1909 has never been so relevant. Beautiful Ruins was a hard act to follow but, amazingly, Walter manages it with aplomb.”

A Deadly Education

A Novel
The Scholomance: Book #1

By Naomi Novik
Narrated by: Anisha Dadia
Length: 10 hours 58 minutes

A Deadly Education

“Galadriel Higgins has known the rules of the Scholamance were cruel, but if the deadly monsters don't get to Orion Lake first, then she will. He has saved her an embarrassingly number of times even when she was perfectly capable of doing it on her own. Her mind is made up, only one of them is surviving until graduation, even if the current seniors have their own plans. From the second I started listening to the ALC of A Deadly Education, I was hooked. I enjoyed Naomi Novak's other stories, but this one takes my heart completely. Novak takes the magical boarding school trope to the next level and honestly surpasses anything else in the genre. El and Orion are hilarious and I love how snarky and angry El is. It's nice to see someone allowed to get mad in a YA novel. I cannot wait for the next installment to be released! ”

The Once and Future Witches

By Alix E. Harrow
Narrated by: Gabra Zackman
Length: 16 hours 3 minutes

The Once and Future Witches

“Alix Harrow’s The Ten Thousand Doors of January was my favorite book last year, so I had incredibly high expectations when I picked up The Once and Future Witches. This book is very different, but I adore it just as much! Set in the late 1800s in a world with a slightly alternate history from ours, women are fighting for the vote and losing. Three wayward sisters decide to challenge the patriarchy by bringing back witchcraft. Told through familiar stories twisted in new ways, this book is incredible. You will not be able to put it down, from the beautifully written introduction to the pulse-pounding ending!”

A great book to give kids a new perspective and insight into what it may be like to be a wild animal surviving on the edges of human civilization. Animal lovers, adventurers, or kids involved with nature will want to read this one.”
