Nine Lives

A Novel

By Peter Swanson
Narrated by: Jacques Roy & Mark Bramhall
Length: 7 hours 10 minutes

Nine Lives

“It’s impossible to describe the experience of reading Nine Lives as anything other than edge-of-your-seat. Death truly lurks around every corner, around every page. It eats at the characters and it eats at you. Wicked fun.”

All My Rage

A Novel

By Sabaa Tahir
Narrated by: Deepti Gupta, Kamran R. Khan & Kausar Mohammed
Length: 10 hours 24 minutes

All My Rage

“Two thumbs up. I loved how the pacing accelerated as the story unfolded. Intense and heartbreaking, as well as refreshing and angering, in the best of ways. I was hooked, listening to the different voices and learning so much about Pakistani beliefs and traditions. Trigger alerts, though! Also important to hear about how folks live with unbelievable trauma and are still able to rise above. ”

Remember Me Gone

By Stacy Stokes
Narrated by: Catherine Taber
Length: 9 hours 50 minutes

Remember Me Gone

Remember Me Gone by Stacy Stokes is thriller as well as a family drama, and the thought provoking story really gets to the root of what we remember, what we choose to remember, and what we'd rather not remember. Be careful what you wish for; when bad memories are erased some good ones go too. Great for teens who like mystery/thrillers with a side of romance.”

A Novel

By Bonnie Garmus
Narrated by: Miranda Raison, Bonnie Garmus & Pandora Sykes
Length: 11 hours 55 minutes

If you enjoyed Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, then you’ll love Lessons in Chemistry.

“I loved Elizabeth Zott! She's a quirky, dynamic, headstrong heroine who is, above all else, a brilliant chemist. She struggles to be taken seriously but refuses to bow to the expectations and societal norms for women in the sixties. The story is funny, profound, entertaining, brazenly feminist, and Elizabeth has the BEST dog ever, Six-Thirty! You don't want to miss this wonderful debut novel!”

Tripping Arcadia

A Gothic Novel

By Kit Mayquist
Narrated by: Carlotta Brentan
Length: 10 hours 52 minutes

Tripping Arcadia

“The atmospheric successor to Knives Out and The Chosen & the Beautiful, this fabulously Gothic read is reminiscent of a chilly, overcast, Massachusetts day, walking through the city, trying not to slip on the wet leaves. Back Bay & class division & re-creation of Renaissance botany & poison & addiction & greasy diners & glittering crushes & being 25 living with your parents & a modern Gothic & stealing the family car & family dynasties and capitalism & 'finding your passion' & fuck she's so pretty&... honestly more to the book than I could ever possibly list.”

The Devil Never Sleeps

Learning to Live in an Age of Disasters

By Juliette Kayyem
Narrated by: Juliette Kayyem
Length: 6 hours 34 minutes

The Devil Never Sleeps

“We don't like to think about disasters, but in this important book, Kayyem argues that we must. From her extensive experience managing disasters, Kayyem urges a new approach to disaster planning. In particular, we must recognize that disasters are inevitable, even if we don't know which ones will occur. With that certainty that bad things will happen, Kayyem urges a focus on post-disaster response and the common elements that can save lives. Well written and argued, this book is highly recommended.”

The Wonders

By Elena Medel
Narrated by: Rebecca Gibel
Length: 6 hours 37 minutes

“A mesmerizing read. Medel’s prose is hypnotic—it’s hard to believe this is her first novel. I was completely engrossed in this story, in the shadow each generation casts on the one that comes after it, in the tension between caring for oneself and caring for others.” 
Avni Doshi, author of the Booker Prize-shortlisted novel Burnt Sugar
