My So-Called Bollywood Life

by Nisha Sharma
Narrated by Priya Ayyar
What an unexpectedly action packed episode. We got thunder, a dramatic guy and gal, Bollywood movie references. All things needed to make a thrilling and hilarious episode of AudioShelf! This week we are discussing Nisha Sharma's My So-Called Bollywood Life. This is our kind of book with a cute story and a great narrator that just makes life a little happier and brighter. Tune for the "insightful" book chats, stay for our ridiculous antics :P

We love author spotlights! Not only does it give us a chance to celebrate an author we love, but it let's us show you all people that you maybe haven't discovered yet! This month we are shouting all about Drew Davies! Author of the incredibly sweet, The Shape of Us, as well as the newly released, Dear Lily! Drew is an incredible individual and a true friend of matter how creepy we may get :P.

Da Vinci in Love

by Maysam Yabandeh
Narrated by Joseph Bevilacqua
FULL DISCLOSURE: this is NOT a positive review When we’re asked to review books, we go into every one really excited that someone is trusting US to provide an honest review of their work, as well as really hopeful that the book is going to be good. Then we get ones where we simply just don’t enjoy. Da Vinci in Love is one of them. Sit back, put your feet up, and listen to how AudioShelf critically analyzes and provides suggestive feedback to authors who write material that doesn’t quite meet our fancy.

On today's Talks episode we are discussing books that took us by surprise. Some books have a twist that just leaves us speechless. We don't know what just hit us, but we sure weren't expecting it AT. ALL. Now, don't get it twisted, in some cases that isn't necessarily a good thing, which we talk about as well. Tune in for our latest AudioShelf Talks and hear all about the twists that made us go "whaaaaa?!"

The Mystery of Alice

by Lee Bacon
Narrated by Bryan Kennedy, Jessica Almasy, Josh Hurley, Cassandra Morris, Libby McKnight, Emily Bauer, Michael Crouch
Oh Alice, where have you gone? What are up to? How are you only in 8th grade!? This week we are chatting all about the Audible Studio Original, The Mystery of Alice by Lee Bacon. It's a book that we know not many adults will think to listen to since it deals with middle school aged kids, but the topics surrounding this mystery novel are all very intriguing, and reminiscent of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars (the good years). It's a quick listen that will make you feel like you are in an old time radio drama. We highly recommend for it a summer drive to the beach/mountains/wherever you're going for vacay!

Join in the discussion over on our socials or in the comments below! We can't wait to hear what you are reading & listening to and where you'll be as well!
