The Bromance Book Club

Bromance Book Club: Book #1

By Lyssa Kay Adams
Narrated by: Andrew Eiden & Maxwell Caulfield
Length: 9 hours 9 minutes

The Bromance Book Club

“In just a few short years, Gavin and Thea have gone from starry-eyed young lovers to married with twins. Gavin is at the top of his career in baseball, but Thea is feeling like she’s lost who she is—there is definitely trouble in paradise, and Thea wants out! But Gavin’s teammates invite him to join a book club that just might reignite that spark the couple once had. Can reading romance novels teach Gavin how to win back his wife? I absolutely love the concept of this novel. The writing was fun and light, yet maintained depth and value. I could relate to Thea as a wife and mother and still rooted for Gavin.”

The Soulmate Equation

By Christina Lauren
Narrated by: Patti Murin
Length: 10 hours 26 minutes

The Soulmate Equation

“What can I say about this book without becoming a blubbering, incoherent mess? To say I loved it with my whole heart would be an understatement. The Soulmate Equation is the best mix of enemies to lovers and quasi-fake/forced dating I’ve read in a while, and who could say no to the genetic dating app premise (I wish the app was real)? I was holding in my squeals so as not to wake anyone because I couldn’t stop listening. If you like your romance with a dash of science, nerd puns, and a sultry cinnamon roll, this one is for you. And Jess’s kid? Can we be best friends?”

Interior Chinatown

A Novel

By Charles Yu
Narrated by: Joel de la Fuente
Length: 4 hours 20 minutes

Interior Chinatown

“We all make choices throughout our lives, choosing different paths to follow, different roles to play. But who selects the options we choose from? Interior Chinatown is like a rapier taken to stereotypes that inhabit society's attitudes towards Asian Americans. The main character, Willis Wu, is a minor actor in an ongoing cop drama who wants to be more than a generic Asian male in the background, maybe even someday becoming "Kung Fu Guy". The novel bounces back and forth between the script Wu is inhabiting and an interior monologue . And one of the strengths of this book, for the reader, is how thin the line sometimes feels between these stereotypical roles that Willis is acting, and the ridiculousness of the particular situation. Interior Chinatown is a brilliant novel, one that challenged this reader in the best possible ways”

The Overstory

By Richard Powers
Narrated by: Suzanne Toren
Length: 22 hours 58 minutes

The Overstory

“Do you love trees? Probably not as much as Richard Powers does! This books weaves together the converging stories of nine characters, but they really function as a means to probe the perspective of the trees themselves. With lyrical prose and amazing stories of naturalist history, this is an epic of environmental literature.”
