One Last Stop
If you enjoyed Honey Girl, then you’ll love One Last Stop.
“McQuiston delivers a delightful sophomore novel that surprised me. Though similar to Red, White, and Royal Blue, One Last Stop adds a science fiction time loop element that makes it fun and different. I had major missing-Brooklyn-feels while listening to this! McQuiston perfectly captures the magic of Brooklyn and the MTA (both good and bad). They have a super strong cast of characters that celebrates found family and kindness. McQuiston redefines what a modern romance can be by combining genres and featuring a strong queer relationship.”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys
The Comfort Book
If you enjoyed Reasons to Stay Alive, then you’ll love The Comfort Book.
“A wonderful listen read by the author that is both reassuring and inspiring. If you loved Matt Haig's Reasons To Stay Alive, this is the perfect follow-up listen. I particularly love Haig's lists of music, art, film lists to reference after reading.”Katie, Bank Square Books

The Soulmate Equation
“I finished this in one sitting and my neck is killing me. I loved this new story from Christina Lauren, from the third-person point-of-view to the mix of science and romance! It was perfect, from every last side character to the sexual tension between the mains.”Blair Boles, Beausoleil Books
How to Fail at Flirting

Naya never would have imagined that their one-night stand would turn into a week-long fling with the potential for even more. And because of her toxic past relationships, she is hesitant to trust Jake. I loved reading about a professor as a romance leading lady!”Kate Storhoff, Bookmarks

If I Never Met You
“I really love Mhairi's writing. It's the fluffy romance you need with the feminism and social justice you want! Her books are always so therapeutic. Like, yes, thank you for going through that existential journey Laurie, now I feel 10x more ready to face my obstacles and create the life I want. Mhairi McFarlane is one of my favorite authors now and I've been sleeping on her last two titles I haven't read because I don't want to be done! I'd say I wished she wrote faster, but I can be patient for quality.”Sara, Green Apple Books
Amari and the Night Brothers
Supernatural Investigations: Book #1
If you enjoyed The Trials of Apollo, Book One: The Hidden Oracle, then you’ll love Amari and the Night Brothers.
“This book was fun! As a reference point, I would say it's a Spy Kids/Men in Black/Percy Jackson/Harry Potter hybrid but honestly, it's in a class all of it's own. Amari was a wonderful main character. She is super smart and caring and despite the absolute terribleness of her peers, prevails by learning to trust herself and use her talents to stand out. There was lots of blatant and unpunished racism, classism, and and brutal meanness coming from the majority of Amari's classmates, both in the non-supernatural world and in the Bureau. On their first day, all trainees have to touch a magical orb and one of their already present abilities gets magnified and becomes a special ability (ie general luckiness becomes unnatural/always happens luckiness). When Amari is bestowed with an illegal ability, she becomes the target of both racism and a form of intense otherism in the supernatural world. I also loved her friendship with Elsie, who was the last of weredragons (like werewolves but for dragons!) and suffered her own share of bullies and otherism for being a bit dorky and for not having shifted to her dragon form yet. The audiobook edition of this novel was well done. Imani Parks gives a perfect voice to Amari and the other young main characters. This is a great read for juvenile readers (anywhere from advanced an advance 8/9 years to teens) and is fun and exciting for adults as well so would also be a great read-aloud book for guardians with younger readers. I would recommend for avid Percy Jackson and Harry Potter fans, those that enjoy spy or adventure books, and even those who enjoy fairy tale epics.”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys

The Infinite Game
“I loved listening to this book. Simon does an excellent job walking readers through how businesses are successful by finding and sticking to their "just cause." A fascinating peek into business history and a thoughtful reflection on how to create a thriving business that stands the test of time.”Terri, Swamp Fox Bookstore
“Perhaps I have a different perspective on this book because I have a younger brother who is a Black, 20-something man in sales, but this book presents an evocative, honest, complex portrait of being a BIPOC person in a white-dominant workplace (albeit one that is high-powered, sales-driven, and New York City-based). This is a book that allows a reader to be seen if this is their experience, but also for a reader to learn about a different reality if this is not their own. Black Buck is a tightly woven, contemporary debut from an author to watch.”BrocheAroe Fabian, River Dog Book Co.

Such a Fun Age
“When I attempted to write a review for Such a Fun Age, I was at a loss for words. How could I encapsulate how Kiley Reid’s startling debut perfectly captured what it means to be a woman? The societal pressure, the self-doubt, the perseverance, the constant comparison — all of it was perfectly represented through Reid’s two wonderfully flawed and captivating leads. Follow Emira and Alix, two women on seemingly incongruous paths who find themselves searching for purpose and an authentic sense of self. Such a Fun Age tackles complex issues — race, gender, economic status, and the intersection of them all — yet remains accessible. You will not want to put this book down; when you do, you’ll be itching to pick it back up again.”Gennifer Eccles, Flyleaf Books
“Whoa. This is hardcore awesome. I hate to use popular books to compare, but it definitely is Ready Player One meets Hate U Give. And my favorite thing, there isn’t a specific heavy-handed message (at least in my opinion) which is the reason I don’t read too many popular books like this one. It asked some hard questions and left some of the decisions about the ‘correct’ answers for your own pondering. And the Libro.fm narration is great! A handful of narrators that made it feel rounded out and enthusiastic.”Leah, Bright Side Bookshop
Red at the Bone
“Wow. Don't let the length fool you - this book is overflowing with heart. An incredibly poignant story of teen pregnancy told from multiple perspectives and timelines, coalescing into something that is so much more than the sum of its parts. The narration was superb, lending all the more life to Woodson's characters. ”Britt, Second Star to the Right
