Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow

A novel

By Gabrielle Zevin
Narrated by: Jennifer Kim & Julian Cihi
Length: 13 hours 51 minutes

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow

“This was my favorite book so far this year. I don't care at all about video games in real life, but I cared so much about these characters and their games and I even kind of want to play them. The narrative flits through time and between perspectives, weaving together a beautiful tale of unconditional love and friendship, and the wonderful optimism that comes from working on something you believe in. It's hopeful and funny and just a little heartbreaking.”

Horse

A Novel

By Geraldine Brooks
Narrated by: James Fouhey, Lisa Flanagan, Graham Halstead, Katherine Littrell & Michael Obiora
Length: 14 hours 5 minutes

Horse

“This book centers on Lexington, often considered the greatest horse in history. But this book is much more than the story of a horse. Brooks writes of slavery, the Civil War, academia, art and publishing, love and loyalty, and racism in history and today. I loved the bond between Jarret, an enslaved boy, and Lexington. I will be thinking of this book for quite some time.”
