The Only Good Indians

By Stephen Graham Jones
Narrated by: Shaun Taylor-Corbett
Length: 8 hours 37 minutes

The Only Good Indians

“I loved this book. Jones has a unique narrative voice, allowing ‘the entity’ to step in and take over unexpectedly, amping up the horror. Also, each character has a distinct voice that brings them to life. Jones combines the culture and traditions of the Blackfeet and Crow people with the social truths of their contemporary life. It is refreshingly different from any other horror novel I’ve read. This book is gruesome and honestly scary. I couldn’t put it down.”

The Duke and I

Bridgertons: Book #1

By Julia Quinn
Narrated by: Rosalyn Landor
Length: 12 hours 9 minutes

The Duke and I

“As an avid romance reader, I've been hyper-aware that I lack experience in one sub-genre in particular: historical fiction romance. Right once I picked up The Duke and I, I knew I found the perfect introduction to the genre. Not only was I enamored with Daphne and Simon's love story, but I was impressed by the novel's feminist themes. The women in this series are outspoken, passionate, and easy to root for. The novel left me smiling from ear to ear. The audio was fantastic as well! Rosalyn Landor did a great job differentiating among characters, translating the humor from page to audio, and keeping me invested in the story. ”
