Mary Jane

A Novel

By Jessica Anya Blau
Narrated by: Caitlin Kinnunen
Length: 9 hours 44 minutes

Mary Jane

“Mary Jane is 14 in 1975 and her summer nannying job is filled with surprises, spontaneity, and love as she is pulled into the family of the little girl she watches. A sweet and funny story of discovering yourself, your loved ones, and where you fit in. It really hit home for me.”

Firekeeper's Daughter

By Angeline Boulley
Narrated by: Isabella Star LaBlanc
Length: 14 hours 13 minutes

Firekeeper's Daughter

“Daunis Fontaine, a bi-racial Ojibwe-Italian-American girl has just graduated high school and has deferred enrollment at the University of Michigan to attend the local state school. She plans to spend more time with her best friend Lily, her ailing Grandmother, and her mom who was recently rocked by the sudden death of her brother, Daunis’ uncle. But then tragedy strikes, and Daunis is the eyewitness. And she is thrown headfirst into an FBI investigation of meth addiction and distribution within the reservation her family lives on and the greater Upper Peninsula area. A nuanced and compassionate look at addiction and the justice system and the risks one girl takes to help her friends, her community, and herself. The truth is a tangled web that it seems only Daunis is willing to carefully pick apart to not only expose the criminals but heal the victims as well. A little bit of romance, a little bit thriller, a whole bunch of hockey, STEM nerds, Firekeeper’s Daughter was engaging and gripping. PS I desperately need an Auntie spin-off.”

A Good Girl's Guide to Murder

A Good Girl's Guide To Murder: Book #1

By Holly Jackson
Narrated by: Bailey Carr, Marisa Calin, Michael Crouch, Gopal Divan, Robert Fass, Kevin R. Free, Sean Patrick Hopkins, Carol Monda, Patricia Santomasso, Shezi Sardar, Amanda Thickpenny & Various
Length: 10 hours 53 minutes

A Good Girl's Guide to Murder

“CHILLS. This book was AMAZING. Experiencing the twists and turns of this case along side Pip and taking risks along side of her sucked me into the audiobook. I particularly enjoyed how all of her logs, interviews, and case notes were laid out throughout the story. Each interview sounded like something straight from a true-crime documentary. Pip was relentless in her pursuit of the truth, and the ending had me gasping and on the edge of my seat.”

How to Invent Everything

A Survival Guide for the Stranded Time Traveler

By Ryan North
Narrated by: Ryan North
Length: 12 hours 55 minutes

How to Invent Everything

“If you ever need to rebuild civilization from the ground up, make sure you have Ryan North with you. If kidnapping is not your thing, then at least make sure you have this book. I wouldn't recommend taking the audio though, because if the power to your portable (music) listening device dies before you get around to "inventing" electricity and/or batteries, you're still screwed. This book is filled with really useful information (and some eye-rollingly bad puns) and delivered in a charming, accessible manner by the author/narrator. There is nothing dry or academic here, in spite of the numerous charts and graphs and footnotes and the information is presented in such a way that even a lazy, clumsy person such as myself could probably utilize it to become a Goddess. Or at least the only person in the cave who has fire. This one is highly recommended not only because it is funny and may save your life in the event of the collapse of civilization (or if you get stranded in the past in a time travel accident), but also because the author has a weird fascination with Salt-N-Pepa's Shoop, which I can respect.”

Watership Down

By Richard Adams
Narrated by: Peter Capaldi
Length: 17 hours 30 minutes

Watership Down

“I am quite judgmental about certain narrations and adaptations — particularly, The Three Musketeers and Watership Down. Both of these require so much personality or the stories lose their sense of adventure; their humor; their excitement; their tension; and, especially, their character. This new narration of this classic book may be one of the greatest performances on an audiobook I’ve ever heard. The care with which former Doctor Who Peter Capaldi gives each rabbit its own distinct voice should get him an Audie award. Every rabbit is so distinct, you’ll always know who’s speaking. If a rabbit is small and timid, you hear it in the little, quavering voice. If a rabbit is annoying, slow, and stupid, you’ll know it. As for the source material, if you’ve never read Watership Down, this is a fantastic way to consume it. This isn’t a story about a bunch of talking rabbits in little outfits, going about their workdays as rabbit lawyers and construction workers. This is about rabbits acting like rabbits in the normal rabbit world of fields and forests, streams and brambles — and an occasional brush with the dangerous human world as well. These rabbits are on a dangerous mission with risks and new experiences. I only take issue with this book being categorized as a children’s story. Sure, it was originally based on tales Richard Adams told you his daughters, but this book transcends age. This audiobook is fantastic and the best performance of Watership Down I’ve ever heard.”

A Novel
The Great Cities Trilogy: Book #1

By N. K. Jemisin
Narrated by: Robin Miles
Length: 16 hours 12 minutes

If you enjoyed Lovecraft Country, then you’ll love The City We Became.

“Enthralling and just a half step away from reality. The audio book performance adds a depth and resonance that transforms the text giving an already incredible read tangible texture.”

Beowulf: A New Translation

By Maria Dahvana Headley
Narrated by: JD Jackson & Maria Dahvana Headley
Length: 4 hours 8 minutes

Beowulf: A New Translation

“Bro! This is not your English teacher's Beowulf. Maria Dahvana Headley's "radical new translation" takes the familiar story of man versus monster and turns it into something both completely new and also as timeless as the original. What happens when Beowulf is less hero and more party boy? Or when Grendel's mother isn't a monster but just a woman trying to avenge her son? Get it from libro.fm to experience this epic oral tale as it was meant to be (smoky mead hall sold separately).”

Boyfriend Material

By Alexis Hall
Narrated by: Joe Jameson
Length: 13 hours 10 minutes

If you enjoyed Red, White & Royal Blue, then you’ll love Boyfriend Material.

“Boyfriend Material is funny. It starts out with quite a lot of silliness because fake dating requires some silliness to seem like a good option, but Luc with his bad decisions, terrible job, well-meaning, overwrought friends is charming. Pretentious, kind, insecure Oliver is charming. Boyfriend Material is charming enough to fake date. And then you start to care. OMG, I've fallen in love with this book.”

Gideon the Ninth

Locked Tomb: Book #1

By Tamsyn Muir
Narrated by: Moira Quirk
Length: 16 hours 49 minutes

Gideon the Ninth

“This is everything I wanted in a book and more. Gideon is likable but flawed, Harrow is horrible and unforgettable, and the prose occasionally turns hauntingly beautiful. The narration helps make a complex world become real and the characters friends you may or may not want to invite over to dinner. It depends on whether your folks are there.”

The Echo Wife

By Sarah Gailey
Narrated by: Xe Sands
Length: 8 hours 25 minutes

The Echo Wife

“A page turner! Great slow burning science fiction thriller. Good fit for anyone trying out either genre for the first time. Very intense read with some jaw-dropping twists. Lots of fun. Xe Sands has the perfect throaty voice. She sounds like a work-obsessed, self-doubting, egotistical, traumatized, scientist!”
