Nothing to See Here
By Kevin Wilson
Narrated by Marin Ireland / 6 hours 40 minutes
“I never expected to enjoy this book as much as I did. I broke my cardinal rule of only listening to books while I walk. From the moment I turned this book on I did not turn it off until I finished it. I don't know whether I would have liked the book as much if I read it. The narrator did an outstanding job reading. I highly recommend this delightful book.”Melinda, Buttonwood Books and Toys
Ready Player One
By Ernest Cline
Narrated by Wil Wheaton / 15 hours 39 minutes
“If you are at all into video games or the 1980's you are going to love Ready Player One. In a future where people often prefer to live in virtual reality than the real world, the man who invented The Oasis is one of the most famous people in the world. Inside the Oasis you can travel from planet to planet, go to school and live out your wildest dreams. But when he dies and leaves his fortune to whoever can find his "easter egg" hidden inside The Oasis - the challenge begins. I'm not even a huge fan of video games and thought this book was a lot of fun. I listened to the audio book read by Wil Wheaton which was great.”Madison, Ballast Book Co.

The Tales of Pell
The Tales of Pell: Book #1
Narrated by Luke Daniels / 12 hours 38 minutes
“Laugh-out-loud chuckle-worthy! The fantasy equivalent to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, in which all fairy tale tropes are turned on their head. The Chosen One has 4 legs, not 2; the witch is surprisingly not as evil as you’re led to believe; and the romantic couple is in no way royal. But there is a quest, some magic, a band of unlikely heroes and even more unlikely friends, adventure, bravery, unforeseen deaths, and a love story with a happy ending. The best part? It’s the start of a new series, so there’s plenty more to come from this fantastically funny duo.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.

Oona Out of Order
Narrated by Brittany Pressley / 11 hours 29 minutes
“With touches of the movies “Big” and “13 Going on 30” and the book “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” this story took me to unexpected places. Starting with Oona’s 19th birthday, her mental presence and consciousness continues aging chronologically while time leaps to different ages of her life each year. It was an imaginative and thought provoking read with more depth than anticipated. It left me with the simple but powerful reminder that we can be worried about our past and future, but all we have is right now. We can spend our time and energy fighting to change the imperfect and unwanted, or we can seize onto what life is offering us right now and make the most of our experiences. By living our lives instead of running away from them, we are shaping the journey of our existence and accepting that we will have both high and low points. It also left me thinking about who are the anchors who provide support, guidance, and continuity through my life? Beyond the deeper themes, this story had the perfect balance of comedic and dramatic moments and provides a lovely homage to New York City, music, and pop culture through the various decades we encounter alongside Oona.”Cori, Bright Side Bookshop
The House in the Cerulean Sea
By TJ Klune
Narrated by Daniel Henning / 12 hours 12 minutes
“It is rare to find a book of substance with a happy ending. THE HOUSE IN THE CERULEAN SEA is that book. Middle-aged, portly, queer Linus Baker is a by-the-book, no-nonsense Case Manager in the Department in Charge of Magical Youth - and his lonely heart cares what happens to the magical children who have been placed in segregated orphanages. Tall, wise, soft-spoken Arthur Parnassus is the master of the secret orphanage that houses six of the strongest and most unique magical children in the world - and he has secrets of his own. When Linus is sent by Extremely Upper Management to investigate whether this orphanage should exist (especially under Arthur’s care), it sets off a chain of events in which fears are realized, dreams are manifested, voices are found, raised, and heard, and the definitions of love, family, and home become as inclusive as possible.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
Mr. Dickens and His Carol
Narrated by Euan Morton / 8 hours 8 minutes
“Full of fantastic period detail and delightful prose, Mr. Dickens and His Carol is a wonderful companion to the enduring holiday classic A Christmas Carol. A month before Christmas, Charles Dickens is informed that his latest serial is a failure and he must produce a holiday story in one month's time or pay back his publishers for their losses. Beleaguered by his demanding relatives and expectant children, Dickens turns churlish and is unable to find any Christmas left within him to produce a fitting book. Fate intervenes when a mysterious woman crosses his path and becomes his much-needed muse, sending Dickens on a journey of inward reflection and reminding him not only of the joys of the season but how his cherished works are a gift for everyone who reads them.”Meaghan Beasley, Island Bookstore
