Within These Wicked Walls

A Novel

By Lauren Blackwood
Narrated by: Nneka Okoye
Length: 8 hours 53 minutes

Within These Wicked Walls

“The blend of magic and realism is fun and the heavy romance is a delight. Blackwood's skill at combining our reality, for instance, a religion with God (He) and all its accoutrements, slavery, and abuse, with a fantastical magical system involving amulets, evil spirits, blood-mad hyenas, and clay people, is well done. A well crafted homage to Jane Eyre.”

Heart Principle, The

By Helen Hoang
Length: 9 hours 30 minutes

If you enjoyed The Kiss Quotient, then you’ll love Heart Principle, The.

“You can always expect tenderness and honesty from Helen Hoang. Her characters’ struggles are often real struggles that people can relate to. The journey Anna goes through to love herself is just as, if not more, powerful than her love story with Quan. Featuring dual narration from Natalie Naudus and Brian Nishii, both of whom did a stellar job evoking the emotions of the characters. Beautiful, sad, and life-affirming. I can’t recommend this book enough!”
