Thank You For Listening

A Novel

By Julia Whelan
Narrated by: Julia Whelan
Length: 11 hours 15 minutes

If you enjoyed Book Lovers, then you’ll love Thank You For Listening.

“This book is like if Love is Blind was actually romantic and not a bizarre social experiment set up for Netflix by Nick and Vanessa Lachey. A one night stand, secret identities, self discovery, off-the-charts chemistry, crackling passion, this book is everything that I wanted and more. Written by audiobook narrator Julia Whelan, Thank You For Listening is a fun peek behind the curtain of audiobooks with all of the love and lust you crave in your romance novels. I couldn’t get enough. If you love audiobooks, have a favorite audiobook narrator, and love romance novels, this is the book for you.”

The Dead Romantics

By Ashley Poston
Narrated by: Eileen Stevens
Length: 10 hours 23 minutes

If you enjoyed Meet Me in the Margins, then you’ll love The Dead Romantics.

“A very funny charming take on the rom-com. I expected something a bit darker when the description included a romance ghost-writer who no longer believes in love, a family owned funeral home with a death in the family, and a clash with a new publisher. The protagonist does break the romance wall a bit by mocking her own distrust of HEA and the pull ghostly romantic interests. NO spoilers just a heads up--you will laugh, with fingers crossed!”

I Kissed Shara Wheeler

A Novel

By Casey McQuiston
Narrated by: Natalie Naudus
Length: 9 hours 24 minutes

If you enjoyed She Gets the Girl, then you’ll love I Kissed Shara Wheeler.

“Another audiobook that I could not stop listening to! A fun, light high school romance that should immediately be turned into a movie and will launch the new brat pack. I loved that these characters got to fight against their school and it's outdated beliefs (especially since I saw college graduates do the same thing in real life on tiktok just the other day). It was clever and funny and sweet and worth every second.”
