The Moon That Turns You Back: Poems

Alyan’s audiobook is a solid companion to the print book, but the beauty and impact of her poetry are diminished in the presentation. Better as a listen-along than as a stand-alone.

Finding Sophie

An electrifying triumph and a must-listen for Mahmood’s fans and for those encountering his work for the first time. Readers of twisty thrillers in the vein of Gillian Flynn and Tana French will be riveted.

Jana Goes Wild

Heron’s (Kamila Knows Best) hilarious yet introspective second-chance romance is perfect for fans of Jasmine Guillory and Talia Hibbert. Listeners will be charmed by its slow-burn relationship and enchanting happily-ever-after.

Fractal Noise

This cinematic production pulls listeners into a character study of grief and religious zeal while making the most of the audio medium.

The Secret Service of Tea and Treason

Listeners will come for the spies and pirates but stay for the romance. This joyous steampunk offering is full of camp and tropes, and Elizabeth Knowelden’s narration perfectly matches the delightfully outrageous story, ensuring that even newcomers to Holton’s world will be laughing and crying along with the characters.

Promises of Gold

Seemingly tailor-made for audio, this powerful book is a must-purchase. Olivarez’s invitation to share moments of his history, culture, love, and joy is wholly affecting.

The Fraud Squad

The high drama and relatable main character make this perfect for fans of Crazy Rich Asians, The Devil Wears Prada, and The White Lotus.

Egypt’s Golden Couple: When Akhenaten and Nefertiti Were Gods on Earth

Despite some flaws, this audiobook is a fantastic addition to any collection. Share with listeners looking for a different take on ancient Egyptian royalty; fans of Guy de la Bédoyère’s Pharaohs of the Sun or Arielle P. Kozloff’s Amenhotep III will also likely enjoy this title.

Rap Capital: An Atlanta Story

Rap’s dominance in popular culture makes this an excellent addition to any library celebrating music, but it is especially important for libraries in the Southeastern United States, a region whose cultural and musical accomplishments, particularly those by Black artists, are sometimes overlooked.
