I'm Glad My Mom Died

By: Jennette McCurdy
Narrated by: Jennette McCurdy

Now Is Not the Time to Panic

A Novel

By: Kevin Wilson
Narrated by: Ginnifer Goodwin & Kevin Wilson
Length: 6 hours 12 minutes

“A little coming-of-age story plus a crime story equals an unusual novel that follows two bored teenagers who don't really fit in and whose 'project' goes off the rails. Once again, the author has created a reality that is just a little beyond believable, yet captures human emotions so well. Read more

Happy Place

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

“This is, to me, Emily Henry's best work. There's a mastery of longing here that is hard to describe, but is deeply heartfelt all the same. Her ability to show life and relationships being made of all the small moments and not just big aspirations was deeply relatable. Julia Whelan soars again with an emotive performance. Read more

The Vanishing Half

A Novel

By: Brit Bennett
