By Diane Cook
Narrated by: Stacey Glemboski
Length: 12 hours 46 minutes

A Washington Post, NPR, and Buzzfeed Best Book of the Year • Shortlisted for the Booker Prize

“More than timely, the novel feels timeless, solid, like a forgotten classic recently resurfaced — a brutal, beguiling fairy tale about humanity. But at its core, The New Wilderness is really about motherhood, and about the world we make (or unmake) for...

Something to Live For

By Richard Roper
Narrated by: Simon Vance
Length: 8 hours 51 minutes

Something to Live For

“Richard Roper’s debut is utterly delightful. I was spellbound from the very first page. Andrew’s job is a sensitive one: when someone dies at home alone, he is called to literally dig through personal effects — scraps of paper or old holiday cards — and determine if there are any next of kin. Andrew’s daily experience with the dearly departed, combined with his model train obsession, dysfunctional office mates, and an estranged sister, result in a compelling read. Funny, smart, and sad, Roper’s How Not to Die Alone is just wonderful.”

Apples Never Fall

By Liane Moriarty
Narrated by: Caroline Lee
Length: 18 hours 3 minutes

If you enjoyed The Thursday Murder Club, then you’ll love Apples Never Fall.

“I'm obsessed with Liane Moriarty's ability to write miscommunications. Whenever we're with one character, the others feel so annoying and suspicious, but the second we swap POVs my empathy swerves. I think it reaffirms my belief that all people are simultaneously absurd and beautiful. No offense to the designer (kind of), but please don't judge this one by the cover.”

Mexican Gothic

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Narrated by: Frankie Corzo
Length: 10 hours 39 minutes

Mexican Gothic

“Delightfully creepy. Dread builds steadily throughout the book. As a listener, you know that something is wrong but it’s hard to put your finger on it. Like the main character, you will doubt everything: the characters, their motivations and even your own deductive abilities. This book keeps you on your toes, flitting from one theory to the next. Mexican Gothic takes all the best of traditions of gothic house horror and infuses it with something new: the evils of colonialism. Listen carefully and consider keeping the lights on!”

The Hollow Places

By T. Kingfisher
Narrated by: Hillary Huber
Length: 9 hours 43 minutes

The Hollow Places

“This book was a trip! I did not know what I was getting myself into when I started this audiobook. Get ready for an adventure into the weird world of T. Kingfisher and her fantastically creepy telling of a woman's return home after divorce. Kara has been welcomed by her uncle to stay in an empty room in his Wonder Museum, a weird and wonderful place with taxidermy real and imagined animals, collections of strange ceramics, and bizarre folk art. Kara (Carrot) agrees to help her aging uncle maintain the museum and while he is out for surgery, a series of strange occurrences lead her to a bunker in between the walls. But Kara and her friend, the coffee shop barista next door, quickly discover that this bunker world is more terrifying than it seemed and they aren't fully sure how to deal with it. Kingfisher's narration is full of nervous energy; Kara and Simon's relationship is quirky with plenty of quips that keep the story light, even when they are in the depths of fear and despair. Hillary Huber's voice relays the nervousness and the humor perfectly, this book is best read at night, under a moonless-sky with the willow branches brushing against your window.”
