Angie Thomas$18.99 $17.47
After listening to The Hate You Give, Thomas's next book is high on my audio TBR! The story of a young woman how wants to win a rap battle in honor of her father, a hip hop legend who passed away, is lyrical, fun and memorable!
John Green$14.99 $13.79
I love John Green. Ever since I stumbled upon The Fault in Our Stars (the book that turned me on to YA,) I've been a big Green fan. And as the mother of a kiddo with OCD, Green's personal OCD story,as well as the one of his protagonist, Aza, fascinate me!
Caroline Criado Perez$27.00 $24.84
I've only just begun this book but it's changing the way I look at our society and how woman are impacted by data in every aspect of their lives. I really enjoy listening to non-fiction on audio - it allows me to take in information without feeling like I need to be taking notes!
Kim Michele Richardson$15.99 $14.71
I adore a good book set in Appalachia and equally adore a strong story based on real events. Richardson promises both in her book about the 'blue people' of Kentucky and the traveling librarians of the Kentucky Pack Horse Library Project!
Madeline Miller$16.99 $15.63
Told in terms of Greek mythology, Circe makes the characters of this famous story real and relatable. I highly recommend listening to it on audio!
Jon Cohen$16.99 $15.63
I've been dying to listen to this book ever since I finished One-in-a-Million Boy! This is the story of a man who suffers a tragic loss and retreats to the woods to recover but finds himself face-to-face with a young woman who will change his life. Touching and sad but with a hopeful road trip (I LOVE a road trip!) that will give you hope for the protagonist and humanity!
Louise Penny$17.98 $16.54
No...I've never read a Louise Penny mystery! Can you believe it? I'm starting at the beginning and highly recommend that you do too! So far, the reader is terrific and the story is sucking me in. It's a quiet beginning for Penny but I hear it's worth the ride!
Karina Yan Glaser$7.99 $7.35
The story of a little family trying to save their home from an 'awful' landlord named Beiderman, this is a classicly endearing story to listen to with your kids. And when you discover you love it, there are more!
Bruce Handy$17.00 $15.64
Read about the history of children's books and be transported back to all of the titles of your childhood. Intriguing and engaging...if you've always been a book lover you'll enjoy this trip down memory lane!
Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book One the Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book One)
Rick Riordan$7.99 $7.35
I've also never read a Percy Jackson novel...and neither has my son. We have a road trip coming up and I decided it was time! Perfect for the tween/early teen set, this is the first of a set of mythological stories that follow the travails of Percy Jackson. I can't wait to be introduced and to introduce my son!
