On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

A Novel

By Ocean Vuong
Narrated by: Ocean Vuong
Length: 7 hours 18 minutes

On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

“Written as a letter from son to mother, Ocean Vuong's On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous is desolately beautiful. Each carefully crafted sentence builds upon the last, a momentum that carries you through a hundred pages before you remember to take a breath. Bleak, brilliant, it is the book other books will be compared to for years. Honestly, I would have been fine if it had been the last book I ever read.”

By Kiersten White
Narrated by: Emma Galvin
Length: 8 hours 9 minutes

Hide

“I've always enjoyed reading Kiersten White's YA so I was eager to pick up her new adult title. Whew! What an exciting ride. I listened to it on Libro.fm as an ALC and I was constantly on edge with this story! I loved all the characters, but especially Mac, Ava, Legrand, and Brandon. I wanted to wrap them all in fluffy blankets so they could finally catch a break but it wasn't meant to be. If the idea of playing hide and seek for your life intrigues you, this is the title for you! ”

Black Leopard, Red Wolf

The Dark Star Trilogy: Book #1

By Marlon James
Narrated by: Dion Graham
Length: 23 hours 59 minutes

Black Leopard, Red Wolf

“If I had to pick one word to describe this book, it would be feral. James creates a fantastical Africa that invokes the violence and brutality of the old world, but wraps it in delicate layers of myth and magic that make the reader want to cozy up to the savagery in order to get a better look. The characters add to the effect, as they are mysterious enough to entice and real enough to despise. The sense of displacement and lack of certainty enforces the message that nothing and nobody in this world can be trusted, not even the self. If people want to call this the African Game of Thrones, I won’t necessarily argue, but I will say that the Tracker and his frenemies would make any of the big baddies in Westeros run for cover with their tail cut off. ”

Under the Whispering Door

By TJ Klune
Narrated by: Kirt Graves
Length: 14 hours 54 minutes

Under the Whispering Door

“One reviewer called Under the Whispering Door "A Man Called Ove meets The Good Place", which pretty accurately sums it up. A love story as well as a story of grief, regrets, and living a meaningful life, Under the Whispering Door is ultimately a story of hope and second chances. This book is delightfully weird and quirky, and a wonderful follow up to Klune's House in the Cerulean Sea.”

If you enjoyed Girls of Paper and Fire, then you’ll love She Who Became the Sun.

“WOW, WOW, WOW! What a STUNNING book! She Who Became the Sun is equal parts beautiful and brutal, powerful and poetic.

Gideon the Ninth

Locked Tomb: Book #1

By Tamsyn Muir
Narrated by: Moira Quirk
Length: 16 hours 49 minutes

Gideon the Ninth

Gideon the Ninth is an epic science fantasy that if delivered into the hands of enough people will set the world on fire as it hasn’t been since The Hunger Games. Brilliance doesn’t come close to explaining Tamsyn Muir’s narrative where no single word is wasted or her engineering of a world with characters that end up belonging to you wholeheartedly even long after the last page. With fierce independence and hysterical wit, and laced with moments of pure heartbreaking tenderness and loyalty, Gideon and Harrow’s relationship simultaneously digs under your skin and tugs at your heartstrings. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.”

A Psalm for the Wild-Built

Monk & Robot: Book #1

By Becky Chambers
Narrated by: Em Grosland
Length: 4 hours 8 minutes

If you enjoyed The Alchemist, then you’ll love A Psalm for the Wild-Built.

“Imagine a world with many, many cups of tea. Doesn’t this world sound amazing? Doesn’t it calm you just to think of it? Sibling Dex makes people tea as a way of life, but they are still struggling to find meaning in the world. Just when they think they’re about to figure it out by seeking out the supposedly-extinct cricket song, they stumble upon a wild-built robot, Mosscap. Mosscap exudes childlike wonder and an untainted way of seeing the world. Together, Dex and Mosscap exchange thoughtful commentary about humans, other animals, robots, and the role of social constructs in our lives. Reminiscent of the Alchemist set far in another world; it’s a timeless philosophy lesson driven home with dry wit that only a robot can bring to teatime.”
