The Tales of Pell
The Tales of Pell: Book #1
Narrated by Luke Daniels / 12 hours 38 minutes
“Laugh-out-loud chuckle-worthy! The fantasy equivalent to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, in which all fairy tale tropes are turned on their head. The Chosen One has 4 legs, not 2; the witch is surprisingly not as evil as you’re led to believe; and the romantic couple is in no way royal. But there is a quest, some magic, a band of unlikely heroes and even more unlikely friends, adventure, bravery, unforeseen deaths, and a love story with a happy ending. The best part? It’s the start of a new series, so there’s plenty more to come from this fantastically funny duo.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.

By Tommy Orange
Narrated by Darrell Dennis, Shaun Taylor-Corbett, Alma Cuervo & Kyla Garcia / 7 hours 59 minutes
“A stunning debut novel by an original voice. Twelve characters of Native American descent, interrelated by birth or chance, struggle with the competing forces of cultural history and modern urban existence. Their stories build separately before colliding powerfully in the book’s final pages at The Big Oakland Powwow. I was riveted.”Keltie, Parnassus Books
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing
The Carls: Book #1
By Hank Green
Narrated by Kristen Sieh & Hank Green / 9 hours 24 minutes
“Brilliant! Hank Green has written an engrossing debut novel with a fun, vibrant, emotionally powerful and completely non sequitur plot. In a New York crosswalk, protagonist April May’s discovery of giant, sentient, maybe even alien omnipotent robots completely upends her life, both professionally and romantically. Through the eyes of this young, queer antihero and her robots, we see humanity in its modern context: how people love, connect, and create belief in a media landscape that sometimes degrades humanity.”a.c., Bookshop Santa Cruz

By Tanya Tagaq
Narrated by Tanya Tagaq / 5 hours 30 minutes
“Tanya Tagaq is a musical artist in more ways than one. As a world-renowned Inuit throat singer, she has already stunned the world with her powerful songs and lyrics, but now in her first memoir, an explosive combination of narrative, poetry, myth, truth, and ferocity, she weaves the story of a young girl who comes of age in a small Arctic town, bound by boredom and violence, natural wonder and the spirit world. Life is a beautiful and terrifying thing, and Split Tooth contains all of it.”Melinda, Bookshop Santa Cruz

A Shetland Island Mystery
Shetland Island Mysteries: Book #8
By Ann Cleeves
Narrated by Kenny Blyth / 10 hours 44 minutes
“Wild Fire is the 8th book in the Jimmy Perez Shetland Island mystery series. Though I am a fan of the BBC/PBS show, this was the first book that I read. Wonderful depiction of insular island life, strong character development and a plot with twists and turns. What the characters are saying and what they leave out is important too for some personal situations. I listened to the audiobook on Libro.fm.”Pat, Village Square Booksellers
Narrated by Dan Bittner, Fred Berman, Gabra Zackman & Rebecca Soler / 7 hours 57 minutes
“Engrossing, thrilling and original. The story alternates between a podcast format and Sadie’s voice. Sadie is a compelling protagonist - strong, determined and on a mission. Fantastic listen!”Jennifer, East City Bookshop

The Great Alone
Narrated by Julia Whelan / 15 hours 1 minute
“Kristin Hannah's The Great Alone is a powerful, compelling story of survival - survival of the natural elements and of the human spirit. It's 1974, and 13-year-old Leni Allbright lives with her devoted mother, Cora, and abusive father, Ernt, who was a prisoner of war during Vietnam. America is changing after the war, and Ernt thinks their best chance at a fresh start is to move off the grid, to America's last frontier - Alaska. Grizzlies, wolves, and dropping temperatures are Leni's worries outside of her family's cabin, but as Ernt's battle with his demons rages on, it's no safer inside. The result is a beautifully descriptive, heart-wrenching adventure.”Hillary Taylor, Lemuria Bookstore
Crimson Lake: Book #1
By Candice Fox
Narrated by Euan Morton / 12 hours 9 minutes
“I just finished listening to Crimson Lake. Set in Northern Australia, I appreciated that narrator Euan Mortan's Australian accent helped me to feel immersed in the story. Protagonists Ted and Amanda are both beautifully flawed narrators who kept me guessing as to their reliability. It is hard for an author to create one compelling mystery, and in Crimson Lake, Candice Fox weaves in three fascinating, tricky mysteries into one cohesive, immersive story. Adventures in the jungle, a gaggle of foster geese, and a missing, brilliant troubled author keep the plot moving and absorbing. The audiobook also includes an interview with Ms. Fox that gives great insight into the creation of Ted and Amanda, and promises that Crimson Lake is not the last we will hear from them. I am a longtime fan of mysteries, and thoroughly enjoyed this one.”Jessica, Bookbug
