All Adults Here

A Novel

By Emma Straub
Narrated by: Emily Rankin
Length: 11 hours 4 minutes

All Adults Here

“A single sudden and shocking occurrence jolts Astrid Strick — widow, mother, and small-town stalwart — into reassessing her life, especially her failings with her three grown children. Even as she tries to find a path toward redemption, it’s clear her offspring are nursing different hurts. Straub’s lovely and charming comic novel explores the messy and dissonant truths that underpin the illusions we maintain about those closest to us. No one is at fault, and everyone is to blame. Even adults have to grow up. Utterly charming and completely engrossing.”

Little Secrets

A Novel

By Jennifer Hillier
Narrated by: Kirsten Potter
Length: 10 hours 38 minutes

Little Secrets

“I started listening to this book before knowing anything about it. The narrative is split between two female characters. As the book opens, Marin is a successful businesswoman who is happily married with one child. Kenzi is a young art student in her twenties. Her boyfriend just happens to be Marin's husband. One day, Marin is a candy store with her precious son. She looks away to pay the cashier. When she looks down on her son, he has vanished. There are many surprising twists throughout this well-written story. The final plot twist is one that I never saw coming. The narration was beautifully done. I highly recommend this novel to the reader who treasures a razor-sharp thriller.”

With the Fire on High

By Elizabeth Acevedo
Narrated by: Elizabeth Acevedo
Length: 7 hours 26 minutes

With the Fire on High

“This was a great listen. Emoni, a single teen mom, has so much on her plate and has maturity beyond her years. She’s realistic and responsible and navigates high school, parenting, college decisions and a budding love interest. She’s becoming a talented chef and her feelings are expressed in her food. The author narrates and she had me hooked from the first sentence.”

A Wolf Called Wander

By Rosanne Parry
Narrated by: Kirby Heyborne
Length: 3 hours 53 minutes

A Wolf Called Wander

“ This is the ultimate adventure book!! I loved this book!! The author does a wonderful job of bringing OR-7 (aka Journey) to readers in a way that makes animals easier to understand. Her descriptions of his senses, hear/smell and his wag. The things that he has to learn as a pup really makes this book about family and the circle of life.”

Clap When You Land

“Put this book at the top of your listening list! Clap When You Land is a beautifully written and compellingly narrated story of two half-sisters who are unaware of each other's existence until their father dies in a plane crash. Elizabeth Acevedo not only writes with an exquisite voice, but she and Melania-Luisa Marte alternate narrating with voices that carry into the readers heart and soul. One of the best audio books I have listened to in a very long time.”

The Happy Ever After Playlist

By Abby Jimenez
Narrated by: Zachary Webber & Erin Mallon
Length: 9 hours 17 minutes

The Happy Ever After Playlist

“2020 has been quite the year and all I can seem to focus on are happy love stories. Out of all the ones I’ve read or listened to this year, this one hit me the hardest. The story is great, the characters are lovable, and I just couldn’t stop listening. Each chapter had its song and the book had its own playlist that IS on Spotify. A few chapters in and I started listening to the songs before each chapter. SUCH A COOL EXPERIENCE! I’m blown away by this book. I now require playlists to go with every book I read, and I will also proceed to not stop telling other people to read it.”

The City We Became

A Novel
The Great Cities: Book #1

By N. K. Jemisin
Narrated by: Robin Miles
Length: 16 hours 12 minutes

The City We Became

“What did I just listen to and why did I like it so much? Part of falling in love with this book was the listening experience, to be certain. The narration was stellar. The production was on point. But the story... the story itself is sublime. N.K. Jemisin has written a love letter to New York City - but not the one in bright, bold letters on the silver screen - the real city, and the real people who inhabit it and call it home, even if only temporarily. And it was beyond my wildest dreams (and nightmares). The City We Became is so incredibly layered and nuanced - diving into discussions of racism and sexism and the fallacy of good vs evil. I wanted nothing more than to steep in its long chapters, and get to know its boroughs as intimately as Jemisin would allow - not mere stereotypes but fully fleshed and brilliant, blinding avatars. Witty, subversive, imaginative, unbelievable. Get on this wild ride.”

Big Summer

A Novel

By Jennifer Weiner
Narrated by: Danielle Macdonald
Length: 10 hours 54 minutes

Big Summer

“I have never read or listened to anything by Jennifer Weiner before, I thought would be a bit too fluffy for me. I was really surprised to find that I really enjoyed this audio. This story about friendship, loyalty, being comfortable with yourself and staying true to yourself, was very well written and I also really enjoyed the narration. I liked it even more once I got to the twist and realized there was a bit of a mystery thrown in! I very much enjoyed listening to this audio. I highly recommend this one to get your summer reading/listening started!!”
