“Trevor Noah of the Daily Show was, quite literally, born a crime. His mixed heritage in apartheid South Africa gives him unique insight into the various classes, cultures, and neighborhoods of his youth. His narration of his own story is a gem.” – Jenny

“Trevor Noah is an amazing storyteller and having him perform the the audiobook himself, listening to him slip in and out of various languages, adds an extra special level of authenticity that feels like listening to an old friend talk. His mom is such a strong-willed and inspiring figure. I particularly loved hearing him tell stories about growing up with her.” – Erin

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee and narrated by Reese Witherspoon
“I had tried and failed to read this book, but Witherspoon’s southern voice proved to be perfect for the book and setting.” – Carol
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
“Those pesky humans have grown on a certain angel and demon, so now it’s up to them to stop the end of the world. Which incidentally is happening next Saturday, so on a bit of a deadline here. Martin Jarvis was a delight to listen to and made this hilarious novel shine.” – Nicole
Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews and narrated by Renee Raudman
“This entire series offers a perfect mix of action, humor, drama and a bit of romance.” – Deb 
“I loved this book. It’s built on 80s pop culture references and will make you want to relive every cultural classic as you read through it. The characters are interesting and well-rounded and you befriend them before you realize it. The audiobook narrated by Wil Wheaton is also stellar!” – Jenny
“This is a very cool look at Gloria Vanderbilt’s life through her own eyes. She tells her story to her son Anderson, understanding now how it eventually affects her down the road, and it’s with this 20/20 hindsight that her tales really shine.” – Jenny
