How High We Go in the Dark

A Novel

By Sequoia Nagamatsu
Narrated by: Julia Whelan, Brian Nishii, Keisuke Hoashi, MacLeod Andrews, Jeanne Sakata, Greg Watanabe, Kurt Kanazawa, Matthew Bridges, Kotaro Watanabe, Brianna Ishibashi, Joe Knezevich, Micky Shiloah, Stephanie Komure & Jason Culp
Length: 9 hours 20 minutes

If you enjoyed Station Eleven (Television Tie-in), then you’ll love How High We Go in the Dark.

“An astounding first novel, Sequoia Nagamatsu's How High We Go In The Dark is without a doubt going to be a major event in 2022's speculative fiction. It begins with a virus thawed by an Arctic exploration team, and branches out its far-reaching and long-lasting consequences. It will be a hard read right now for people recently dealing with the losses of our current pandemic, but for that reason it's also an important book. Read it when you're ready to think about hope again.”

The School for Good Mothers

A Novel

By Jessamine Chan
Narrated by: Catherine Ho
Length: 11 hours 56 minutes

If you enjoyed The Power, then you’ll love The School for Good Mothers.

“This book was absolutely wild. Chan really makes you examine motherhood and how subjective it can be. With her fictional school and its excessive tactics, you wonder how you can judge mothers - is it possible to learn how to be a 'good' mother and what does 'good' even mean. Every moment of this book will stress you out a little (in a good way) and get you thinking.”

The Love Hypothesis

By Ali Hazelwood
Narrated by: Callie Dalton
Length: 11 hours 8 minutes

If you enjoyed The Kiss Quotient, then you’ll love The Love Hypothesis.

“Ali Hazelwood's debut is a HIT! This book has it all. On the serious side, we've got valuable conversations of asexuality and a focus on women in STEM and the realities of the academic world. On the tropey side, we've got fake dating, a bit of the grump/sunshine dynamic, and a hilarious play on "there was only one bed"! This book has so many laugh out loud moments, often courtesy of Olive's best friend Ahn, that I cannot stop thinking about. There's really something for everyone in this story, and it's one I couldn't put down! If you are a fan of contemporary romances, or are just starting out in the genre, this is an absolute must-read!!!”
