Notes on an Execution

A Novel

By Danya Kukafka
Narrated by: Mozhan Marno & Jim Meskimen
Length: 9 hours 42 minutes

Notes on an Execution

“When the book opens, we meet the murderer Ansel Packer in his jail cell, 12 hours from execution. In the next chapter, he is a toddler in 1973 and we learn about his origins. At that chapter, I was hooked! As the book progresses, everything we learn about Ansel is from the point of view of the women in his life: his mother, his wife, and—my favorite—an 11-year-old girl who was in the foster care system with him. This is such an interesting exploration into the mind of a murderer. He feels very real, and very relatable.”

Narrated by: Ann Patchett
Length: 11 hours 13 minutes

These Precious Days

“I loved absolutely everything about this book and did not want it to end. Ann Patchett's narration is magical and I believe is best way to experience her writing. Though these are essays, they are expertly arranged and together feel like a memoir. Patchett talks about everything from life and death to bookstores and book covers and you immediately want to gift this book to everyone. I could not recommend it highly enough!”

I Must Betray You

By Ruta Sepetys
Narrated by: Edoardo Ballerini & Ruta Sepetys
Length: 7 hours 9 minutes

I Must Betray You

“I loved the audiobook from Libro.fm. The phenomenal narrator captures the spirit of every character, and I was immediately drawn into the story. I also experienced every emotion. Joy for the budding relationship between Cristian and his girlfriend, love for Cristian's outspoken grandfather, anger at the thought of them standing in line for a small potato or cooking oil, disgust at the death and treatment of children, and surprise at the ending. And a little laughter at references to Twinkies and Bruce Springsteen ... oh, the good ol' days. I love all of Ruta's books, and this did not disappoint.”

Delilah Green Doesn't Care

By Ashley Herring Blake
Narrated by: Kristen DiMercurio
Length: 11 hours 41 minutes

If you enjoyed One Last Stop, then you’ll love Delilah Green Doesn't Care.

“Like binging your favorite Gilmore Girls arc, this tender-hearted romance is full of small town charm and a cast of characters you won't want to leave. Delilah Green is a toughened New York photographer who just wants financial stability, and someone in her bed at night. Now, if only she could convince her lonely heart of that. Claire Sutherland owns the bookstore in the same small, Oregon town she grew up in, the same small town she's raising her daughter in. She just wants to convince her best friend that the man she's marrying next month is a literal shit boot. And also if her daughter's father could grow up and communicate, that would be great. And maybe she wants to get laid. When said best friend, Astrid hires her estranged sister, Delilah Green to photograph her wedding, bringing her back to the small town she swore she'd never return to, Delilah and Claire are thrown into a whirlwind of misunderstandings, camping trips, wine nights, photography lessons, society parties, and horrendously-decorated inns. Sweet, a little steamy, and full of lonely people finding that home is a group of people, not a location."”

Birthday

A Novel

By Meredith Russo
Narrated by: Dana Aliya Levinson
Length: 7 hours 58 minutes

Birthday

“Loved this YA novel of gender alignment! Two babies "meet" at birth in the hospital and grow up as close friends with a special bond. One of them is a "typical" male; the other realizes with more and more clarity that, though born male, she is female. Predictably, she has lots of difficulties and traumas as she matures -- the "normal" growing pains plus the increasing conviction that her body just doesn't match her insides. Through the chronicling of the friends' lives (every year, from birthday to birthday, told in their alternating voices) runs the constant thread of the soulmates' lifelong friendship. Spoiler alert: it turns out well in the end! The extensive conversation at the end between the author and the audiobook narrator [who are both trans women] is worth the price of the audiobook. Open, honest, soul-baring, and replete with valuable support and resources, the interview itself could be a life-changing resource for someone with gender questions and confusions.”

The Golden Couple

A Novel

By Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen
Narrated by: Karissa Vacker & Marin Ireland
Length: 11 hours 3 minutes

The Golden Couple

“Yes! What makes a great thriller? A therapist who has lost her license in the quest of doing what SHE thinks is right. An affair. A couple who seems too good to be true, and their emotional reactions mirror that. The sneaking suspicion of being watched... so many levels of being watched. Avery, the therapist who seems like a detective, starts her non-traditional therapy process with her new clients, her 'golden couple,' who are coming to therapy because of a one-night-affair, but things don’t add up. While Avery expects some glossing over of the truth, she generally doesn't have a curve ball every session. Can they fix what is broken? What is the cost of safety and security? The characters are intriguing and I had no clue who I should be rooting for until the conclusion. Very enjoyable.”

Honor

By Thrity Umrigar
Narrated by: Sneha Mathan
Length: 11 hours 18 minutes

Honor

“This is one of those books that I didn’t want to end! It is a story of an Indian -American journalist going back to India for the first time in 20 years. She returns to cover the story of a young Hindu woman who defies tradition both by working outside the home and marrying a Muslim. The consequences for her are horrific and heartbreaking, shedding light on both the traditional treatment of women and the Muslim/Hindu conflict in India. The main character is also forced to face her complicated feelings toward the land she left as a teenager. Despite the atrocities that take place, it is also a love story on several levels with wonderful characters who I wish I could revisit in a sequel.”

Off the Edge

Flat Earthers, Conspiracy Culture, and Why People Will Believe Anything

By Kelly Weill
Narrated by: Xe Sands
Length: 7 hours 13 minutes

Off the Edge

“It's easy to look at the social and political landscape of the past few years and despair for the human race. We may feel we are entering a new dark age, a social-media-fueled fracturing that will Balkanize our nations and cultures until consensus reality vanishes entirely. Is this our fate, a new tribalism formed from Facebook echo chambers, waging an endless information war in the ashes of democracy? Well, while Off The Edge does address these fears, it does so with surprising levity. It takes us through the history of the flat earth conspiracy theory, from its cult-like origins to its recent role in the emergence of QAnon, and introduces us to fascinating figures along the way, ranging from the expectable loathsome neo-Nazis to shockingly admirable modern-day skeptics. This is its most impressive balancing act -- treating flat earth theory and the culture surrounding it with the appropriate ridicule, rather than attempting total journalistic neutrality, while also humanizing those caught up in its spin (at least, the ones who aren't overtly terrible people). The most outlandish beliefs are rooted in entirely commonplace emotions... ”
