A great book about memory and childhood. Gaiman narrates the audiobook himself and really makes the story come to life...and especially chilling.

My favorite "cozy" mystery series with the most unforgettable protagonist, 11 year-old Flavia de Luce. The audiobooks are such a treat! I eagerly anticipate every new title in this series.

My first Anna Quindlen book and I was not disappointed! A great, light story about an artist who is re-evaluating her life.

A near-futuristic love story about a young woman who goes to extreme lengths to find the man she loves. The audio version really brings it to life. My favorite book of 2014 so far.

A powerful retelling of "The Scarlet Letter" in a near-future America. Fast-paced but still extremely thought provoking.

A great coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of Leningrad during WWII. Appropriate for adults and teens. Also a great read-a-like for "The Book Thief".

The story of two unfulfilled stay-at-home parents who have an affair one summer. Perrotta exposes the dark underbelly of suburbia in his books, which are all worth checking out.

This first book in a great literary mystery series. Atkinson brings so much emotional depth to the unsolved crimes that private detective Jackson Brodie investigates.
