Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow

A novel

By: Gabrielle Zevin
Narrated by: Jennifer Kim & Julian Cihi
Length: 13 hours 51 minutes

“I absolutely loved listening to Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow. As a Gen X-er, the reference to old school video games like Donkey Kong, Pac Man and Oregon Trail, brought about nostalgia and kept me engaged, even though I don't consider myself much of a gamer. If you love a character-driven story you will love this novel! While I didn't... Read more

By: Jason Reynolds & Ibram X. Kendi
Narrated by: Jason Reynolds
Length: 4 hours 11 minutes

“I will recommend this book over and over again because it is that amazing. I especially love the young adult adaptation because the information is so easy to absorb.

A Novel

By: Kevin Wilson

Length: 6 hours 12 minutes

“I absolutely loved this! Ginnifer Goodwin’s narration is wonderful and Kevin Wilson’s writing is just phenomenal.

Happy Place

By: Emily Henry
Narrated by: Julia Whelan
Length: 11 hours 2 minutes

And once you get your first buzzing tug of those heartstrings, you’ll instantly know that you’ve been bit by the Henry love bug. Henry introduces you to a tangle with a quaint flirty friendship as two... Read more

Daisy Jones & The Six (TV Tie-in Edition)

A Novel

By: Taylor Jenkins Reid
Narrated by: Jennifer Beals, Benjamin Bratt, Judy Greer & Pablo Schreiber
Length: 9 hours 3 minutes

“Written in interviews given by various members of the band Daisy Jones & The Six and those they encountered, the novel is an engrossing look at a fictional band in 1970s Los Angeles. It reads like a rock memoir, so much so that you often forget they were not a real band. I highly recommend listening to this one on audio from Libro.fm: it's... Read more

Clap When You Land

By: Elizabeth Acevedo
Narrated by: Elizabeth Acevedo & Melania-Luisa Marte
Length: 5 hours 32 minutes

“Clap When You Land is a story of sisterhood unlike any I've experienced before, with characters as multi-faceted as the places they come from. The free verse is rhythmic and pounding in all the right places, soft and lyrical in all the others. And for a story so rife with grief and struggle and anxiety and (the list goes on)... it's hopeful, but... Read more

Mexican Gothic

By: Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Narrated by: Frankie Corzo
Length: 10 hours 39 minutes

“Delightfully creepy. Dread builds steadily throughout the book. As a listener, you know that something is wrong but it’s hard to put your finger on it. Like the main character, you will doubt everything: the characters, their motivations and even your own deductive abilities. This book keeps you on your toes, flitting from one theory to the...
