Quirky Stories Made for Audio!

My favorite types of books to listen to are stories about quirky characters and whimsical storylines. Ones that are fun to listen to but also have all the heartwarming feels. These books are all about the characters and the precarious situations they find themselves in!

Nothing to See Here

By Kevin Wilson
Narrated by: Marin Ireland
Length: 6 hours 40 minutes

If you enjoyed Mostly Dead Things, then you’ll love Nothing to See Here.

“When Lillian and Madison first meet at a fancy boarding school, one is the wealthy heir of a department store fortune, the other a white trash scholarship kid. After an incident at the school breaks them apart, they don't see each other for many years until the magnetic Madison, now the wife and strategist for a powerful Tennessee politician, unexpectedly asks Lillian for a favor and offers her a job: become a nanny for her ten-year-old twin stepchildren. Stepchildren who have the politically inconvenient habit of literally bursting into flames. Lillian immediately finds herself caught again under Madison's spell, but as she begins to grow closer to the children, she increasingly finds that she's the only one on the childrens' side. And she also finds something she's always craved: a sense of family and belonging. Nothing to See Here is a hilarious and poignant comedy of manners and spontaneous combustion, and you'll find yourself rooting for Lillian and the kids like they're your favorite team playing in the World Series. This book falls in that perfect little sweet spot: well-written, moving, funny, and most difficult of all: not depressing.”

Oona Out of Order

A Novel

By Margarita Montimore
Narrated by: Brittany Pressley
Length: 11 hours 29 minutes

Oona Out of Order

“Oona Out of Order is the mind- bending, time travelling story of a young woman, Oona Lockhart, who is turning 19 on New Years Eve, 1982, only to wake up 32 years in the future as a 19 year old in the body of her 51-year old self. Each year, Oona ages one year internally, but in her altered reality, she bounces around from age to age, not knowing what year of her life will come next. At its heart, Oona Out of Order is about the quest to fully know oneself, the enduring power of love, and the lasting bond of family.”

When We Were Vikings

By Andrew David MacDonald
Narrated by: Phoebe Strole
Length: 10 hours 14 minutes

When We Were Vikings

“I could not put this book down. Readers rarely have the opportunity to see the world through the eyes of someone with a disability and experience their lives in a meaningful way. We rarely see people with Down syndrome or fetal alcohol syndrome depicted as truly feeling, flesh-and-blood people who experience love, lust, heartbreak, and disappointment, who face challenges as they strive for their dream. Zelda is my new hero! She is undaunted and unflappable as she grapples with her dreams and life experiences. Your journey with her will be all too brief, but it is one that will stay with you long after you read the last page.”

The Roxy Letters

By Mary Pauline Lowry
Narrated by: Jayme Mattler
Length: 9 hours 39 minutes

The Roxy Letters

“A racy and smart update for those who enjoyed Bridget Jones’s Diary or other epistolary stories. Roxy’s series of letters to Everett, her sort of roommate/ex-boyfriend, stops being her only means of communication with him and transforms into an increasingly cathartic diary for Roxy to think about her personal roadblocks and document the escapades of her daily life. It captures the ennui of today’s overeducated and underemployed 20-somethings who want to be somebody but lack the motivation or know how to get there. I appreciated the strong girl power theme of owning your sexuality and having fulfilling female friendships in your life. I loved how it was an in your face strong poke at the transformation of Austin from a hip and quirky college town to an overpopulated, overpriced and corporatized city. I loved it as an audiobook, but definitely one for the headphones for language and sexual content, especially if you have littles around.”
